Travelodge expands in Asia with Seoul opening
Travelodge Hotels Asia has continued its rapid growth with the opening of Travelodge Myeongdong Euljiro in the heart of Seoul’s tourism district.
The latest property is the group’s second hotel in Seoul, bringing the Travelodge hotels portfolio to ten in two years.
Travelodge Myeongdong Euljiro is located in close proximity to some of the city’s most popular tourist attractions and is designed to offer a value-for-quality, no-fuss experience that delivers everything the independent savvy traveller needs.
This select service hotel offers 224 rooms in three categories – Standard Twin, Superior Twin and Superior Double. Other amenities include The Lodge Restaurant, which guests can use as an all-day social and working space, 24-hour fitness centre and self-service laundromat. High-speed complimentary internet, locally-inspired touches within the hotel as well as genuine, friendly service completes the experience.
Nearby attractions include the Myeongdong Shopping Street, the Gyeongbokgung Palace, the Myeongdong Cathedral, the Gwangjang Market, the Cheongyecheon Stream and the N Seoul Tower. Other than the N Seoul Tower, which is ten minutes away by car, the other five attractions are all within ten minutes’ walk from the hotel, allowing guests access to awe-inspiring history, scenic sights and mouth-watering local street food with ease.
Marcus Aw, managing director of Travelodge Hotels Asia, said: “We are delighted to open our second property in Seoul in just six months, which is strong market validation for what we have to offer – a great product in an unbeatable location, enabling our guests the ease and convenience to explore the city while providing the assurance of a high-quality stay experience.
“As domestic demand increases along with the continued attraction of Seoul for international leisure travellers, this will continue to be a priority market for us as we accelerate our growth in Asia.”

The company aims to grow to 100 hotels by 2030, capturing the mid-scale select service segment in capital cities and key destinations in Asia.
