Ok but could be better

location, price, quiet neighborhood
Old building with clean rooms I noticed unpleasant noise from running water and reported the problem. But hotel attendant sent an inspector later and by the time he arrived thenoise stopped. And then noise continued on and off irregular frequency. They did not bother exchanging rooms just by listening to tourist.

good value and clean room

price, location,ease of check in
I stayed one night for business and would stay here again. Check in was quick, though not exceedingly cordial. The twin room was dated but quite clean, though carpeting was stained. Room had a fridge and flat screen tv. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had a tub. Air conditioning in room was on but very poor. Bathroom had basic toiletries but no shampoo. The hotel has one tiny elevator. Still the location was terrific and the room was fine for a one night stay. My wake up call came on time. The outside of the hotel looks nothing like the photo presented and there is a 7-11 connected to the lobby. I did not use bar of restaurant in hotel.

Cheap hotel for a night

Price, Location near USA Embassy, easy to sightsee from here
I didn't go in expecting much for the price, but the hotel is decent. The hotel is outdated, many things look original from the time it was made. It was easy to find from the subway, about a 5min walk or less. Check-in was fast, but our room wasn't ready. They said check-in was 12pm on the website... we got there at 3 and the room wasn't ready yet. The elevator was extremely small, only 4 people max without luggage. We stayed on the 9th floor and were upgraded to a room with a double bed and single bed which was nice. The air conditioner didn't work at all and there was no shampoo in the bathroom, but for that price I couldn't complain. Someone posted earlier that they had a remodeled room on the 8th floor. It must only be the 8th floor because none of the rooms on the 9th floor were remodeled. Overall it's a great place to stay for the price in downtown Seoul.

Centrally Located Hotel

Quiet, Close to Metro, Quick Check-in
The Hotel is very centrally located, with lots of restaurants to eat at nearby, and the staff are very helpful. However, the rooms are very outdated and everything is manual. There is a window, however the view looks onto adjacent buildings. Also,the hotel has and advertises free wifi, but there are multi wifi connections for the hotel and you cannot connect to a stable connection. If you need some place just to sleep and you aren't expecting anything else, then this would be hotel. Personally, for the price and the photos I expected a little bit more.

A nice hotel with superb location.

Steps away from Insadong, near MRT and local attractions.
I enjoy my stay at Insadong Crown Hotel. The staffs are courteous and helpful. The location is really superb. I wish it is nearer the MRT station.
