Jeffrey H. Solo travelers Australia, November 20, 2014
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The hotel was outdated.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 Otherwise, the room facilities and elevator were outdated and not what one would hope to expect from a hotel.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.

clean cosy convenient

clean room, good location, convenience
Very good location tho need to know at which alley to turn in to the hotel. near to anguk stnt and jonguk stnt. hotel staffs are friendly. The room is very clean and tidy. mine is an ondol room, and is simple and comfortable. The only minus was that when someone smokes somewhere, my room could get the cigarette smell which I'm very sensitive to. quite alot of eating places in the area.

I had a lot of work to do!

Very clean, very friendly staff, and very silent in spite of its location.
Just an exellent place to stay in the Insadong area of Seoul. Saerim Hotel is a very clean, silent and comfortable place to chill out after a hard day of work. The staff is friendly and currentt English speaking. Price was also very convenient in relation to the good quality of services. Good Internet connection and close to one of the nicest neighborhoods in town.

Value for money

Convenient location, clean hotel room
This is a small hotel, situated in a convenient spot in Seoul with easy assess to 3 subway stations and airport bus stop to ICN Airport. The bedroom and bathroom are clean and tidy. There were some Internet connection issues / login issues with the computer, but the staff members were friendly and helpful to give me a hand. So this was not a big issue.
