Great location and great atmosphere”

Location

our family stayed three nights. made reservations through their website. atmosphere. great atmosphere at the guest house. super friendly english-speaking staff (though it's korea - everybody speaks english well). the friendly laid-back vibe wasn't limited to staff - all the other young backpackers and families staying there were all laid-back, too. location. great location. short walking distance from subways (both the anguk station and the jongno 5 station), changdeokgung palace, and insadong-gil - where you'll find all sorts of great shopping and restaurants. there's a small mini-market at the gas station that sells snacks and sodas. room. we stayed in the family ondol room on the roof - no elevator, so prepare to climb some steps. clean, roomy, and quiet - with air-conditioning and fan. small television with tons and tons of channels. korean style bathroom. mini-fridge. the downsides. wireless internet access is only on the first floor and the signal strength is pretty spotty. also, reception closes at 1am, so if you get there late, you might get stuck. the beewon guest house is a little more expensive than other comparable places, but you're paying for the location and the atmosphere. would definitely stay there again.

Great stay in Seoul”

Great location, cheap and clean

We really like the location of the Beewon Guest House. The street has many small shops that sell tradition Korean stuff such as Hanbok, and interesting music instrument(I dont know what its call). There are 2 subways nearby. The staff can speak English :) And they have the most beautiful house cats. The only drawback is, the building is quite old. It is very clean, however, it can be a bit dusty as the building is old.

The geothermal system is very hot!”

At the first, what made me most impressive is the geothermal system, it was very very hot. l even had to open the air-conditioner to lower the temperature so that I could sleep well. But at the last, what made me most impressive was the staff's service attitude after we checked out. The staff actively assisted us to find out the IPAD we left in the guest house and help us to get it back, even though we had arrived in Taiwan. I am very appreciated Beewon guest house and all the staff there. Thank you all.

Cozy budget option”

Warm rooms in the winter, fridge in every room, traditional Korean style

A lively budget hotel, the Beewon Guest House was cozy and welcoming. The beds were made in the traditional Korean style, with no sheets, just blankets, and that made me a bit uncomfortable about the cleanliness, but after talking with the staff and researching a bit about traditional Korean bedding I felt more comfortable. The rest of the hotel was spotless, and they had a free clothes washing machine. The rooms were floor heated and could get a bit warm, but with the window wide open, it was comfortable. The staff was mostly early-20s Korean-Americans living in Korea for a brief period of time, and they were better at giving out clubbing recommendations than food or sightseeing recommendations, but they were helpful and kind. The breakfast is similar to what I've seen at other budget options in Asia - plain white bread with questionable jam and butter. Very basic - I wouldn't really call that breakfast. Overall though I thought it was a good value and would recommend the hotel.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!”

It was just me and my sister on this trip. Definitely not our first time in Korea but our first for Beewon GH. Had to booked separately due to our flight schedules. The first day we had to booked a twin bunk bed but when we arrived the reception told us they upgraded us to a twin room instead and we were really happy. We requested to check in a little earlier than 2pm coz I had to rush for a concert at Olympic Park, and they were so nice enough to let us do so, the receptionist i forgot to ask her name as i was in a hurry i told her i’m going to Winner’s concert she was as excited as i am, and she even carried my heavy luggage to the 3rd floor coz she don’t want me to be late lol... so cute of her. The room was specious, bathroom was clean they even have bathtubs. Breakfast served the basics bread, butter, jam, coffee,tea, orange juice & warm milk. The only cons is that i wish they had separate heater especially during autumn / winter coz it could get a little chilly at night.

Enjoyed our stay”

It was a very nice place, only a five minute walk from Insadong, several palaces, next door to a 7-11. Had some difficulty finding it the first night however. If you take Anguk station and leave through exit 4, walk the opposite direction that the exit is facing and go around the corner in front of the Japanese embassy. (Right next to exit 4). Walk down the street till you reach Changdeokgung palace. The street signs will indicate you are heading towards it. Turn to the right at the palace and walk to the 7-11. It is the alley next to the 7-11 and Beewon guesthouse will be visible from there.

You get (more) as you pay. This is my second time here and still prefer to stay here for my next trip in Korea. The pussy cat usually remind me as their; Beewon guest House, mascot...so cute. The thing I like the most is staffs are always friendly and ready for help need. Some of them are student, working as a part-time job. Although some are not fluent in English but they try hard. I respect them. So clean, nice, friendly and good location.

It was in the centre and was not too far from all the places that we went. The staffs are so kind and friendly we felt the place was like home. We had to depart early in the morning and they were very kind to let us have our breakfast prior to the breakfast time. The cat was so cute and always greeted us when we come home to beewon. Overall we were really happy to stay there and enjoyed our time fully. Just to add, it has no elevator so you would have to use the stairs.

Just across the road from the Cheongdongdeok palace and the seoul city bus tour route

We would stay here again but ask for ground floor rooms as there was no elevator and I found trudging up three flights of stairs to our room onerous. The staff were absolutely gorgeous and helpful and the pet cat Full Moon delightful. The little alley ways around the hotel were full of surprises - coffee shops, restaurants and traditional korean houses. The Seoul CIty Bus tour stopped across the road, outside the palace. For 10000 won you can ride around all day, getting on and off at the various tourist stops. The Presidential palace is about 10 mins walk away - be there at 10 am to see the changing of the guard. We met lots of friendly people from all over the world. Not 5 star rooms but 5 star location and service.

Great location. Wonderful service.

Our stay at the Beewon Guest House was not quite as we expected. The pictures on the website led us to believe the rooms were much larger than they actually were. For the price a night, it wasn't quite worth it. The location was great, right off of the main street in Insadong, and the people were very helpful, but the room was a little dirty and definitely cramped for 3 people. Maybe a better place to stay for a solo traveler.

I've been here couple of times. I always stay here whenever come to Seoul. The property is only 5 minutes walk from the nearest Subway station, Jongno-3-(sam)-ga. Lively aleys are only 3 minutes walk toward Jongno 3 ga station. You'll find alot of grilled meat cafe and bar there. Insadong art street is also can be reach on foot. Also other tourist spots like Bukchon Hanok Village, Bukchon Cultural Center and Changdeokgung Palace are in your range. Inside property you'll feel like in your own home. Various rooms are offered. The 6 bed dormitory room is quite spacious, clean and comfy. The kitchen is big and you can use it if you want to make your own food. The staffs are really helpful, nice and welcoming. One staff even offered me hot milk in the middle of his work. Really appreciate that kind of gesture. Staying in this property is definitelly worth the money. Recommended!

It’s a nice guest house. Near 7 eleven convenient store. The only struggle here is the towel, they don’t have big bathroom towel so you need ask for a towel everynight or every morning(if you want a new towel) you can also hang used towel to dry.
