Nicr central place, very friendly staff
Simple hotel, central location, lots of food locations nearby, very friendly staff. Breakfast is as well very simple. You might check the option of going to PARIS CAFE nearby. Compared to other hotels, still value for money

Overall Good
I liked my stay here better the last time, about 2013. Food was better and our rooms were kept cleaner. But will definitely stay here again despite all that. Location is close to Insadong, changdeokgung palace and there's a new Paris baguette place nearby.

Budget hotel accessible to Metro Station
Stain on bed sheet and towel, also hair on bed sheet. Bath room is very small, shower head is on top of the basin, inconvenient and clothes can get wet because no shower curtain. Otherwise, it is budget hotel accessible to Metro Station. The couple of owner is very helpful, showed us way to Metro Station.

A week in Seoul
Overall service, personal touch, location, price, accessibility
We stayed at this hotel during the 2nd week of November. We travelled to the hotel by airport limo bus from Incheon airport where we alighted at Chang Deok Gung bus stop along the route, Hotel is very close to Hotel Ibis which is a very good landmark. From the bus stop walking with luggage it took us 10 minutes on foot. People working in the immediate neighborhood seemed to know the hotel as well and were helpful. When we arrived in the lobby, Mr Oh, the front desk manager has been waiting and expecting us. Check in was fast, and Mr Oh was very helpful answering our questions on where to find a cheap enough lunch 2 minutes away. During our stay, Mr Oh helped us on Subway information, getting around, while Mr Baek, the owner took us out to lunch one afternoon - this was a nice surprise for us. Both of them and also Mr Baek's wife spoke good English. The breakfast room in at the basement level, with bread, butter, jam, cake, juice, tea, coffee and eggs. ( you can steam the eggs in the micro wave and if you like the egg steamer, you can also buy it). Making friends with the cook made things nicer since she shared some kimchee with us one morning. The location was good. Basically walking distance to many sights nearby, including Insadong Street that was full of souvenir shopping and places to it. There are grocery shops nearby in addition to the subway line. Will we return - yes..

Comfortable, rooftop terrace, ideal location
Comfortable firm beds, close to vibrant neighbourhoods and still a quiet hotel, rooftop terrace is a big plus. Ideal location: close to subway, restaurants, shops. Friendly and helpful staff
We had a very pleasant stay at hotel ICON. The rooftop terrace is a big plus! Nice view over the city and the mountain. And ideal for smokers. We called it our 'living room'. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. The beds are very firm and comfortable. Good wifi in the rooms. The shower is typically Korean: hanging over the sink, but nice and hot. A small fridge, free water bottles daily. Aircon and floor heating (we needed both during our stay!) function well. The breakfast is very basic but of good quality: boiled eggs, toast with butter and jam, croissants, coffee/tea. And there's a Paris Baguette around the corner, as well as a small supermarket. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. To help us find an address that we didn't know completely but where we were supposed to meet people, the receptionist called around for us and gave us perfect directions. The hotel is ideally located: in walking distance of the subway, restaurants, shops, Insadong and Bukchon Hanok village. And yet situated in a quiet street which means quiet nights! On our last night the couple who own the hotel took us and a few other guests out for a Korean dinner at a unique restaurant. They were the perfect hosts!

Nice budget-hotel in good location
Great location
The hotel is a nice budget hotel in a good location. The room: clean enough, but there are spattered bug bodies all over the walls and window curtain, the comforter needed a good wash, and the towels were hit or miss if they were truly clean or not. Fast enough WiFI Breakfast consists of toast, a small pastry, and hard-boiled eggs. Note on getting there: from Jongno-3-ga station on line 5, take exit 5 (4 if you want escalators, then turn around and go to 5), and cross the intersection. Directly across from where Supyo-ro hits the intersection is a large and busy alley. Take it to get to Samil-daero. Make the first right onto Samil-daero 30-gil. Make the first left (onto the street right before the Ibis hotel). And the end of the street is a staircase on your right. Take it and go left, and the hotel is right there. This will allow you to avoid walking all the way up Samil-daero and around the school which isn't much fun if you have heavy bags.
