                The location was great!”
                The hotel was in a great location right by the art gallery I wanted to see. It is also relatively close to Myeongdong and other touristy areas. While the room is relatively old, you can tell the staff tries to keep it clean. The staff was VERY kind and hospitable. They kept our luggage for us even after we checked out, and responded to any questions we had quickly. All in all, this place was great for the price!

                Great value for money in an excellent location. Staff were incredibly friendly and polite. The hotel is quite run down however with mouldy air con smells and an accumulation of dust on many fittings. Too many mosquitoes also. Bed was comfy tv was a food size and a restocked fridge was a nice touch. I'd stay again but they do need to have a deep clean in the rooms.

                This hotel is located in the middle of Insadong street whereby they are many restaurants and souvenirs shop around. The hotel is very near to subway station (200m away and less than 5 minutes walk) and it’s near to the famous palace, Bukchon Hanok village and Tosokchon Samgyetang (15 minutes walk). It is also very near to the airport limousine bus stop (around 5 minutes walk) so it is easier to get a bus to airport. The hotel lift is pretty small, and only can accommodate 2 persons + 2 medium luggage bags + 2 cabin luggages bags but this is not an issue. Since it’s only a 2-3 star hotel, thus the washroom is pretty basic and may need some improvement as well as the air con maintenance. Overall is a good stay if looking at its location, and the staff is really friendly.

                Last minute booking for our last night stay and were happy we did. Our room was clean and good enough for 2 people. Strategic location as it's near the Palaces, Hanok Village, Namdaemun market, Dongdaemun shopping, Seoul station, etc. 7-11 convenience store is along the way from the bus or subway station. Easy to find since signage is in English. Bath tub is a plus though we're not able to use it. Room is quiet so we slept well. Only downside i guess is the receptionists don't speak English well but they're accommodating. We arrived at past 11am and was allowed an early check-in and late check-out until 1 pm. Thank you.

                Unlike what previous review stated, staffs are incredibly nice despite the language barrier. They came to greet us as quickly as they could even in the course of brushing. However, the elevator is so slow that I thought it broke down and we had a hard time finding socket that supply enough voltage to charge essentially more than 2 devices at a time. But I guess it's just because the hotel is so old. Still a good choice given the price.

                Saerim hotel is a compact property tucked away in one of the side streets of insadong. Anguk metro station is barely a 5 min walk and it was easy to spot the property on Google maps. The hotel staff were very courteous and friendly and very prompt with housekeeping on a daily basis. There's enough cafes and restaurants around and a couple of Buddhist vegetarian restaurants and a Indian restaurant(little India) close by. quite a few palaces and attractions are either walkable or short hops away by the subway.

Also close to the 6 and 3 subway lines so easy to get around. The adjacent main street has plenty of food stalls and souvenir shops. Highly recommend.

                I was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The location is hard to beat - right in the center of Insadong on a side street, close walk to the metro, lots of restaurants and shops all over. Clean and comfortable room with friendly and helpful staff. And I stayed over for a weekend - during the Olympics, no less - and for only $30/night. I don't think you can beat that.

                The hotel room reminds me of my mini one room when I was staying in Korea so it felt really homey. The location of the Hotel is right at the heart of Insadong, with the subway station only like 5 mins away and the airport bus stop only a couple of steps from the Hotel. The receptionist was also a very kind ajeosshi. I just thought the bathroom was kinda cold.
