Insadong Tourist Area

1)Convenient and within the heart of Insadong. 2)Walking distance to Gyeongbokgung Palace and 3)Anguk Stations(OrangeLine)
The hotel is old and small in size. Towels changed daily but the double bed is low quality. The 1st room next to the main hotel door is too cold and floor is not heated up properly. No breakfast. The bad thing is our children had food poisoning during the last 2 nights and the hotel in charged directed us the way to the pharmacy nearby. However, the extra rolled up mattress was not changed even though it was soiled with vomits. I wouldn't prefer to stay here the next trip.

Contact with email before travel to ask about hotel information but no one reply. The guy one off staff with long hair doesn't have service mind, always talk with a straight face. The hotel locate in convenience area. Daily cleaning was good.

Great little hotel in a great big city

Location, staff, warmth!
Late autumn in Seoul, and always good to head back to a warm room in a welcoming hotel after a day of wandering. The clutter of computers that used to overwhelm the (relatively) small room has gone, and now there is almost immediate access to wifi. The very friendly lady who runs the hotel (owner? manager?) is a gem, and always helpful. Easily accessed via airport limousine service (no. 6002; ask to get down at Jonggak station) and the subway, it is within walking distance of sights such as the Dongdaemun market and The suburb urba redevelopment of Chongycheon stream. A wide variety of restaurants and coffee shops - essential in the cold weather - are nearby. Recommended.

basic but good location

Location, relative price, 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The hotel was outdated.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 Otherwise, the room facilities and elevator were outdated and not what one would hope to expect from a hotel.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.
