            Outstanding location to spend a week in Seoul”

            Very reasonable, right next to a Seoul metro station. Highly recommended for couples/solo travelers. Staff were AMAZING (shout out to Sally). Get an IC card and the city is yours: two stops from East Gate Market, and a major Palace.

Though I arrived after 11 p.m., I was moved by the kindness of staff and was very grateful. The opposite side of the hotel was better because it was Iksun-dong, and it was really nice to have a look around Insadong. It's the best hotel.

            The place to stay”

            We stayed in Makers (or Seoul) for 5 nights. For this star-level rating, this hotel does a good job. Location wise it's walking distance to bus-stops and metro's, there's food eateries all around. Across the street are Habok's turned into shopping and eateries so you theoretically don't need to go to the palace area (although the atmosphere is different there - so yes, still go). The staff are friendly and do their best to speak English. Sally was awesome (her English, friendliness and helpfulness - we needed to take a taxi and she went above and beyond her call of duty to get us one). Highly recommended place.

            Stylish Retreat”

            Makers Hotel is a retro retreat in the heart of Seoul, a very short walk to Insadong and even the Palace. The rooms are comfortable and stylish, though standard room is little small, but comfortable. The area across the road is buzzing with renovated traditional Korean lane ways full of designer boutiques and gourmet cafes/restaurants. - well worth the visit. Though there was tad bit of street noise that we could hear from our room during the night. Breakfast is intimate and quite filling mini buffet in their their chic basement cafe - great breakfast coffee for Seoul!

            Great value if you have reasonable expectations”

            I had a great stay at the Makers Hotel and would definitely consider staying there again. There are a few caveats I'd mention though. One is if you need quiet to sleep, try to get room on a high floor. I was on the eighth floor and it was perfect for sleeping when I had the windows shut. The area right around the hotel has a lot of street food vendors that stay open past midnight and it can get loud outside. The semi-double room I booked was clean and of reasonable size, but the furniture and walls had plenty of nicks and scratches, so it didn't look quite as ideal as in the photos. When I sat down on the toilet, the toilet paper hanger was positioned so that it would hit my shoulder, which was kind of awkward but not a deal-breaker by any means. There are no guest laundry services on-site so I had to get my clothes washed at a laundry service a 5-minute walk away. Hotel staff were EXCELLENT and wifi was very fast. The location is also super convenient.

            Right above the metro station”

            The hotel is extremely conveniently located right above a metro station. It is also within walking distance from a few tourist sports like Changdeokgung Insadong. There are many restaurants and convenience stores in the neighbourhood. Our room was very clean except for the window and blinds. The room was unfortunately quite dark because the only window faced the outside wall of another building which was about two to metres away. The staff speak good English and are always very helpful.

            Some reviewer said they are locates at Jongno Sam-ga Exit 3. WRONG. Exit 4 is correct. This exit has escalators. If you use at Exit 3, you will be lugging your baggage up a LONG flight of steps. The subway station is so central and it gets us to Incheon, Gimpo and all the tourist sites easily. The hotel is located opposite a small bukchon village with lots of cafe and a 5-10 min walk from Insadong art street.

            It's in a great location in the heart of the city. You're in walking distance to lots of cool stuff. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The place has a classy feel to it. The room was quiet and I had a good night's sleep. Nice and clean, too. Nice breakfast bar in the basement, too.

            Cozy stay in Seoul”

            Excellent location, not only because it's close to subway station, it's also a good place to discover city life of Seoul in urban atmosphere. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Among a few things which can be improved is rooms' insulation. Besides, because the hotel doesn't offer laundry service, if there is information about self laundry services in the neighborhood on hotel's website would be helpful.

            My fiancee and I stayed here during the spring season and I must say, everything was pleasant from our check in right up to our check out. The room was spacious and clean. There were so many restaurants nearby, and the subway station was just right outside the hotel. What more can I ask for? On that note, I would like to thank Sally and Jeremy for accommodating to my many requests, eg, helping me with directions, booking a cab for me, and providing me with a fan. I have travelled near and far but this is my first time experiencing such warm hospitality from a hotel. Hence, if you're thinking whether or not to book a stay at this hotel, hesitate no more. I would say, as a foreigner, I felt very welcomed at Makers Hotel and it made my stay in Seoul all the more memorable. Thank you again Sally and Jeremy for the excellent service.

And curtains don’t block out all of the light...I’m a light sleeper, so as soon as the sun came thru the windows...I woke up. Bathrooms are good size. Lovely amenities. Showers are so warm.

            The first impression when i entered the hotel was the lobby was stylish & modern. The staffs were all very friendly & some spoke real good English which made it easy for foreign tourists like me to communicate with them. The room was clean & pleasant though it was a bit small, i had no issue with it. This hotel is strategically located with 3 lines - purple, blue & orange lines which makes it easy to travel most the places by subway. The best part is that it is located directly at exit 4 of Jongno 3-ga station. The hotel is also located directly opposite of the Ikseon-dong Hanok Village.

            Location is excellent, because the hotel is right outside exit 4 of Jongo-3 station, and this station is at the intersection of 3 subway lines. However, as the hotel is only 10-levels high and in a crowded location, it can get pretty noisy at night and you can hear people clearly talking on the streets. room is a little small for 2 people's luggage space and the bed is not as soft as a standard hotel but it's definitely clean.

            We stayed in Makers (or Seoul) for 5 nights. For this star-level rating, this hotel does a good job. Location wise it's walking distance to bus-stops and metro's, there's food eateries all around. Across the street are Habok's turned into shopping and eateries so you theoretically don't need to go to the palace area (although the atmosphere is different there - so yes, still go). The staff are friendly and do their best to speak English. Sally was awesome (her English, friendliness and helpfulness - we needed to take a taxi and she went above and beyond her call of duty to get us one). Highly recommended place.

            Makers Hotel is a retro retreat in the heart of Seoul, a very short walk to Insadong and even the Palace. The rooms are comfortable and stylish, though standard room is little small, but comfortable. The area across the road is buzzing with renovated traditional Korean lane ways full of designer boutiques and gourmet cafes/restaurants. - well worth the visit. Though there was tad bit of street noise that we could hear from our room during the night. Breakfast is intimate and quite filling mini buffet in their their chic basement cafe - great breakfast coffee for Seoul!

            Great value if you have reasonable expectations”

            I had a great stay at the Makers Hotel and would definitely consider staying there again. There are a few caveats I'd mention though. One is if you need quiet to sleep, try to get room on a high floor. I was on the eighth floor and it was perfect for sleeping when I had the windows shut. The area right around the hotel has a lot of street food vendors that stay open past midnight and it can get loud outside. The semi-double room I booked was clean and of reasonable size, but the furniture and walls had plenty of nicks and scratches, so it didn't look quite as ideal as in the photos. When I sat down on the toilet, the toilet paper hanger was positioned so that it would hit my shoulder, which was kind of awkward but not a deal-breaker by any means. There are no guest laundry services on-site so I had to get my clothes washed at a laundry service a 5-minute walk away. Hotel staff were EXCELLENT and wifi was very fast. The location is also super convenient.

            The hotel is extremely conveniently located right above a metro station. It is also within walking distance from a few tourist sports like Changdeokgung Insadong. There are many restaurants and convenience stores in the neighbourhood. Our room was very clean except for the window and blinds. The room was unfortunately quite dark because the only window faced the outside wall of another building which was about two to metres away. The staff speak good English and are always very helpful.

            Love the place”

            Some reviewer said they are locates at Jongno Sam-ga Exit 3. WRONG. Exit 4 is correct. This exit has escalators. If you use at Exit 3, you will be lugging your baggage up a LONG flight of steps. The subway station is so central and it gets us to Incheon, Gimpo and all the tourist sites easily. The hotel is located opposite a small bukchon village with lots of cafe and a 5-10 min walk from Insadong art street.

            Nice place. Great location ”

            It's in a great location in the heart of the city. You're in walking distance to lots of cool stuff. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The place has a classy feel to it. The room was quiet and I had a good night's sleep. Nice and clean, too. Nice breakfast bar in the basement, too.

            Cozy stay in Seoul”

            Excellent location, not only because it's close to subway station, it's also a good place to discover city life of Seoul in urban atmosphere. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Among a few things which can be improved is rooms' insulation. Besides, because the hotel doesn't offer laundry service, if there is information about self laundry services in the neighborhood on hotel's website would be helpful.

            The hotel is located in front of the subway train station Jungno 3 ga exit 3. The room is always clean and tidy. If you dont know where to eat, you may ask the receptionist or you may refer to the book at the lobby. There is a famous restaurant right in front of the hotel. Only open for dinner. Overall, we are happy with the stay.

            Excellent stay with excellent service from the staff”

            My fiancee and I stayed here during the spring season and I must say, everything was pleasant from our check in right up to our check out. The room was spacious and clean. There were so many restaurants nearby, and the subway station was just right outside the hotel. What more can I ask for? On that note, I would like to thank Sally and Jeremy for accommodating to my many requests, eg, helping me with directions, booking a cab for me, and providing me with a fan. I have travelled near and far but this is my first time experiencing such warm hospitality from a hotel. Hence, if you're thinking whether or not to book a stay at this hotel, hesitate no more. I would say, as a foreigner, I felt very welcomed at Makers Hotel and it made my stay in Seoul all the more memorable. Thank you again Sally and Jeremy for the excellent service. Warm wishes, Scarlett

            Sally/Young at reception and even the manager were extremely helpful. Lovely service. Rooms are a bit small. And curtains don’t block out all of the light...I’m a light sleeper, so as soon as the sun came thru the windows...I woke up. Bathrooms are good size. Lovely amenities. Showers are so warm. Loved the personal touches of the bath robes/ slippers.

            Pleasant, modern & friendly hotel”

            The first impression when i entered the hotel was the lobby was stylish & modern. The staffs were all very friendly & some spoke real good English which made it easy for foreign tourists like me to communicate with them. The room was clean & pleasant though it was a bit small, i had no issue with it. This hotel is strategically located with 3 lines - purple, blue & orange lines which makes it easy to travel most the places by subway. The best part is that it is located directly at exit 4 of Jongno 3-ga station. The hotel is also located directly opposite of the Ikseon-dong Hanok Village.

            Excellent location but pretty noisy at night”

            Location is excellent, because the hotel is right outside exit 4 of Jongo-3 station, and this station is at the intersection of 3 subway lines. However, as the hotel is only 10-levels high and in a crowded location, it can get pretty noisy at night and you can hear people clearly talking on the streets. room is a little small for 2 people's luggage space and the bed is not as soft as a standard hotel but it's definitely clean.
