basic but good location

Very well located in Insadong and just a short walk to Jonggak and other central downtown locations. The room itself is basic, but with a large bed and TV. Certainly nothing fancy, but by Korean standards it represented relative value for money.

The hotel was outdated. More of a guesthouse feel.
Near decent restaurants. Near tourist shopping. Helpful tour guide volunteers nearby in tourist areas.
Overall, the stay was less than enjoyable. If you're looking for a backpacking stay, this is a great spot to drop your bags and explore elsewhere. Otherwise, the room facilities and elevator were outdated and not what one would hope to expect from a hotel. I would recommend going elsewhere.

Very good location tho need to know at which alley to turn in to the hotel. near to anguk stnt and jonguk stnt. hotel staffs are friendly. The room is very clean and tidy. mine is an ondol room, and is simple and comfortable. The only minus was that when someone smokes somewhere, my room could get the cigarette smell which I'm very sensitive to. quite alot of eating places in the area.

I had a lot of work to do!
Very clean, very friendly staff, and very silent in spite of its location.
Just an exellent place to stay in the Insadong area of Seoul. Saerim Hotel is a very clean, silent and comfortable place to chill out after a hard day of work. The staff is friendly and currentt English speaking. Price was also very convenient in relation to the good quality of services. Good Internet connection and close to one of the nicest neighborhoods in town.

Great Value for Money
Location, Price, Quiet
Great value for money: The best bargain I could find and rooms were small but clean, checked every day, with large screens and computer available in the room. Excellent Location: 15mn walk from major sightseeing sites and 2 minutes from the "arty" district. Ambiance: mix of Koreans visiting on a budget + Tourist, with a friendly ambiance overall. A few warning though: Finding the hotel is tricky as it is in a very small street, have the tel number of the hotel at hand for your cabby. Computers available in rooms are free but old, do not expect to sleep if you don't shut them down. One of the desk clerk did speak good english and was helpful awhile the other one did not at all.
