Slightly hidden,

Good value for money.
8
I think this is a love hotel (for one night stands and such). The welcome pack kind of gave this away. But despite this, the hotel is good value for money. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. There was no cabinet in our room but we made do. PC provided with internet, but all PC settings in Korean. We had a laptop so just plugged in the internet cable. Bathroom is very clean and nice with a bath tub and huge shower head. Has one of those fancy electronic toilets which was a very nice feature. TV has cable reception. 70+ channels, about 6 or 7 with english programs. Other amenities include hair dryer, kettle, fridge with canned drinks provided free. The hotel is not well known by cab drivers, and slightly hard to find. The Hotel doesnt provide breakfast. But all the snacks in the lobby are complimentary. Ice cream, mineral water, coffee, canned drinks, popcorn. 15 minutes walk from the artsy Insadong Street. Nice place for an evening stroll. 5 Minutes from Changdeokgung Palace gate. 15 minute walk to either Angguk metro station or Jongno-3-Ga metro station. Staff are very friendly but speak only a bit of english. But we were able to communicate ok.
Hotel Feature Tip: Not a well known hotel, and slightly hidden. Cab drivers won't know it. Print a map from google maps and bring it, as well as the hotel address. You need to mention its next to Noble Hotel, near Changdeokgung Palace gate. Before you go, check it out on google street view so you know what the entrance will look like. Not your typical hotel entrance.

This hotel is not for traveller

close to the historical place

This hotel is not a regular hotel, it's a hotel for couples, to make love in short time stay. (We call "Love hotel") I trusted Agoda but was so disappointed Agoda has listed this kind of hotel. I totally did not know this hotel is making love hotel till I checked in. Agoda should have known this, and remove these hotels from the list, or put the notice on the list. It's hard to find the entrance, and the gate has rubber curtain which enable hotel guests not be seen from outside the hotel. (this is typical gateway of Love-hotel)
Hotel Feature Tip: There's no Wifi nor LAN cable, though you can use free PC which installed in the room. The amenity kit which is given to all guests includes facial pack, cleansing kit and condom.

Good location, quiet, all amenities you need

I'd recommend this hotel for people travelling solo or for couples. Though not much English is spoken, the staff are helpful and able to answer basic questions. The room was warm, quiet, and clean.

hotel - extremely hard to find

clean, very nice linens, great jacuzzi
5.7
this is definitely a hotel and very hard to find. even with the phone number and a willing taxi driver, we couldn't find it without searching. when we did finally find it tucked way back in a backstreet, we couldn't find a street entrance so i had to duck under the hotel parking fringe to get to the door. the room was fine: clean, nice linens (although ask for extra towels if you're planning on using the jacuzzi - they provide only one bath towel and several small face towels). another reviewer put it best - the room was good, but for nearly the same price you could stay at a real hotel and have the amenities they offer. unless you have the phone number and speak korea. good luck. too expensive to be a bargain and the nice room couldn't overcome the slight sleaze factor of the entrance. there was a list of delivery restaurants in the room - okay if you can read and order in korean.
Hotel Feature Tip: the heat was on, but no thermostat. however, the windows do open and you can regulate the temp. yourself. also, there was a bolt lock on the door.

9.3
i went with a friend and we had a wonderful experience. although it is a love motel, it was not sketchy and we never felt uncomfortable. the staff was extremely friendly and we received great customer service. i would definitely stay here again!
Travel tip: The hotel is difficult to find- our taxi driver got quite flustered. Ask to go to "Hotel Abisyong" instead of "Jongro Abueson Hotel"... Also, the contact number is not correct- it calls some place in Daegu.

Within 10 mins walk from station. But it is not a hotel. Just a motel for couples to stay for few hours. Staff don't know English at all. Smelly air con. My stay is during Nov n the staff cut off the power of my air con cause they say it's their winter season! Old n dirty toilet. Won't choose it again for sure!

Definitely a love hotel

Bedroom facilities
6.7
Hotel is difficult to find even with a taxi driver as it is in a backstreet but it is only a 5 minute walk into the main lively area of Insadong and only a couple of minutes from 1 of the best palaces in Seoul. It is most definitely a 'love' hotel so not for families. You get a welcome pack on arrival containing toothbrushes, razor, cotton buds, facemask for women. the rooms were very clean and comfortable with a huge jacuzzi bath and 2 computers with wi-fi free. No cupboards or drawers for storage though. The staff were very helpful.
Nightlife Tip: Go into the back streets of Insadong to find plenty of places to eat and drink and plenty of souvenier and antique shops.

Great location & friendly staff

The provide 2 computers with internet in the room and the hotel staff speaks English
8.7
This hotel is located in the heart of seoul. Just few minutes walk from Insadong-Gil, Cheongdokgung Palace, Amguk Metro station (line 4) and many korean restaurant and convinience store. Hotel room is clean. The best thing about the hotel room is having 2 computers with internet available. But of course, you have to find your way through the control Panel to look for toggle for English keyboard. Unfortunately they do not offer breakfast. There are also no cafe/restaurant in the hotel, but there is a free flow of mineral water, ice cream, coffee, tea, pop corn. And Korean restaurant/cafe and convinience store is just a walking distance. So, it's fine. Hotel staff speaks good English. They are very helpful and polite. However, you might have some difficulty looking for the hotel when you first arrive because the signage is in Korean. So, make sure you have the telephone number of the hotel so you can call them if you get lost of you can look for the telephone number of the hotel at the bottom of the signage. This is what i did :P
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: The location of the hotel is near to Cheongdokgung Palace and the infamous Insadong street. Walk along the Insadong - Gil (street) and you'll reach the Cheonggye River. It's also located near the Anguk train/metro station (Line 4) and airport bus stop is close by too!

Interesting experience

Rooms are a decent size, employees are friendly
5.3
It wad really hard to find. Also, the beds were really hard and we were unable to regulate temperature so we were too hot. The room itself was very pretty and the bathroom was lovely. My fiancé and I are not interested in history so we were bored inthe surrounding area. It is a decent price, it just wasn't for us.

A decent hotel at reasonable rates

Free refreshments
6.7
the hotel is rather difficult to find for non-korean speakers as there were no english directions nor signage to it and the main entrance was hidden behind a car park. we had to ask a local to guide us to the hotel on the first day. the hotel room itself is of reasonable size, however, there are a few two specific things that i would like to comment on. internet is free via the desktop machine in the room which is in korean (there is no wifi). the bathtub does not have curtains and so we cannot avoid splashing water everywhere after using the shower. refreshments both at the hotel lobby and inside the room are free.
Shopping Tip: If you do not speak Korean, be sure to bring a guide book (in your own language) with you as I found there to be not much English signage and the people there generally do not speak much English.
