Nice Budget Hotel in Heart of Seoul

Better than Expected
9
a little heart to fine in heart of "red light" district, but very safe. nice clean and modern hotel, very central location, and airport bus stop only 5 minutes away.
Nightlife Tip: Do not patronize the adult clubs outside hotel, too expensive.

Hotel ok but would not stay here again

Near the markets and meyong dong shopping area
5.7
Not sure what kind of area the hotel is located in but plenty of business men around and it almost seems quite seedy. I wouldn't stay here again and would not recommend females to stay in this hotel as it feels a little unsafe when walking around at night. Rooms are small with not much space for your bags if there is more than 1 person staying Airport bus just a short walk away.
Hotel Feature Tip: Make sure you push the sink and bath plug down when you can otherwise a horrible smell of sewage will seep through. Once this is done, then your room will smell fine.

The location is so convenient, walking distance to myeon dong, which is a shopping district. At night there's street food vendors, also a convenient store close by. The service is very good as well, room is cozy and clean. Will definitely come again!

i didn't expect to much for this hotel in the beginning. it is hard to locate this hotel even i printed out the map. here's how you should get there: when you are off the main street and enter the lane (it's a one-way. if you come from the main road with taxi, you have to get off here), you'll see "hotel irene" on your right side, and keep walking about 3 mins until you see a convenient store gs25, then turn right into a small alley. hotel irene city will be at the end of the alley. my room wasn't big, but enough for me alone. it might turn too small for two people. no fancy decorations but you'll tell most of the amenities are kept in really good condition. your door will lock automatically after a few seconds you shut it (you'll here a voice). you find everything you need here: tooth brush, hair/body wash, and even sample size lotion and toner. the room i got didn't come with window, but i feel very comfortable. but i can tell it's not a non-smoking room/or hotel right after i enter my room. it you're very sensitive to the smell, this might not be for you. overall i enjoyed my stay. and it's really close to myeongdong, only takes about 10 mins walk.
Restaurant Tip: Don't miss out Korean Style BBQ.

close to the limousine bus stop - Namdaemun mkt
7.3
Very cozy place. The room is very small but okay for a short stay. The hotel is like 5 mins away from the limousine bus stop (Namdaemun Market), as long you do not get off at the wrong bus stop like i did. The famous Namdaemun market is only cross the street, and Myeongdong is 10 mins walk. Myeongdong is highly recommended for Nanta show and cloth shopping. Staff are friendly and helpful. Also they can understand English.
Shopping Tip: Myeongdong is highly recommended for Nanta show and cloth shopping.

Relatively clean motel in bustling area

Friendly service
7
about a 15 minute walk to myeong-dong. closest subway stop is city hall. very convenient. this is a very central location, walkable to most tourist destinations and shopping. it is rather difficult to find the first time area; try taking a taxi from a subway station away. tons of traditional korean food options next door, super bustling and busy area, mostly dominated by men, but they never seem threatening. friendly service. room itself is bare minimum, but clean, no bugs, and the bed is firm and comfy.
Travel tip: The street is pretty bustling at night, mostly with harmless but occasionally loud businessmen. It's great in terms of food -- you won't starve. There are two 24/7 convenience stores, literally 2 seconds away from the motel, and a 24/7 noodle restaurant that is yummy and cheap.

Great location but small rooms

Close to attractions and shopping, very clean hotel
7
The hotel location is great, it's less than a 10 walk to many attractions including Myeongdong, Cheonggye Stream, the hop on hop off city tour bus and many others. There are a few nice restaurants on the doorstep wth the majority being Korean ones but there are a few Chinese and Western ones close by also. The rooms are very small but clean and have everything you need. The room has free wifi, a tv and bathroom with a bath. It was a good stay but I wouldnt recommend a long stay there, the rooms are too small.
Hotel Feature Tip: Upgrade to a larger room if possible.

located in the center of seoul

location

The hotel is located in the city of Seoul between city hall and Seoul station. It is the second branch of Hotel Irene in Seoul and more dificult to find. The staff speaks english. The room size depends on the type. the twin rooms are much bigger than the double room. The hotel is in a good condition. Many sight in the city are within walking distance.
