          Hotel is near the subway and bus stop that makes it good location-wise. There are also a lot of food selections around the area. As for the hotel service, i think it would be better if there would be more choices for breakfast. Also, when we requested for room cleanup, our bath towels are just being changed and trashes just being disposed. Our beddings were left unchanged.

          Thank you for choosing our hotel and left this comment to let us know what we can improve. I am truly sorry that we didn't realize that u requested for room cleaning. It is our mistakes and we apologize for it. Regrading the breakfast in our hotel, we have tried to improve but so far, those are the things that we can provide due to some constrains. We thought of stopping the breakfast service, but simple is better than nothing. Sorry again that our breakfast disappointed you TT Lastly, we promise to try our best to improve in all the aspects. Hope that you had a good time in Korea. And hope to see you again in Korea.

          Cramped but has everything you need. Moment's walk from Insadong. Bathroom could do with caulking/updating. We arrived really early in the morning--but the staff was awesome and let us take refuge in another room that had just been vacated until check in at 11. Exhausted as we were from traveling, their generosity definitely bumped up my regard for this hotel 2-fold.

Bathroom has Shampoo, Body liquid soap, Rinse and also hair dryer. 2-3 minutes from Jongno-3-ga subway station Exit No.5 (The station has 3 subway lines). There has many convenience stores around the area. It is located near Insadong area where you can buy souvenirs. Sound from another room can be heard but it is a small disturbance.

          Hotel Factory is located near to exit 5 of Jongno 3ga subway. Only less than 1 min to reach the exit 5. There is many food stall and restaurant, PC bar on the street. The location is really superb as Jongno 3ga station have all the 3 lines as interchange station(orange, purple and blue). It was very convenient for subway traveler like us! The staff was so friendly and helpful, we just ask for any jimjibang around, and she immediately advised us and prepare a direction map print-out for us! Although the room was small for 3 people (deluxe twin), but it have all-in-one and well- equipped. If the hotel have elevator will be better as elder unable to climb stairs. Definitely will come back to this hotel for my next trip to Seoul!

          Location, Room, staff
          We had a pleasant stay. The hotel is reasonably priced and its location is perfect. The hotel is located in Insadong, a great place to start your adventure. Most markets are not far from here whether you go by train or by taxi. You can get to the hotel by using line 1 or line 5 to jongno3ga and exit 5 or exit 1; however, exit 1 has a little more to see on the way to the hotel but exit 5 will drop you a few steps from the hotel.

          Conflicted”
          I came back to this hotel after using it last year for a couple of nights. This time I made the mistake of staying four nights. It's in a very convenient location, quiet and quite clean, and the staff are friendly for check-in/out. However, there were two main negatives for me. One is that the air conditioner was old and quite noisy. It only had two strength settings - strong and middle, but no weaker and no fan mode. In summer you absolutely need it on, but it's noisy to sleep with and in the end I used ear plugs. The other negative is super uncomfortably pillows; both very high with plastic-y covers, although there are cotten pillow cases over the top. My room also lacked windows, and I can't remember if there was a choice on this. Overall, it doesn't make much difference because the buildings are so close together you wouldn't get much daylight. But somehow, no daylight at all (or means to escape!) was disorientating in the mornings. So I would recommend this hotel for one or two nights max, with your own pillow, but not good to stay longer. Then again, at this price range there's not a lot of choice in downtown Seoul.

          The enough water pressure made me take a wonderful bath after a tiring traveling day. The room is not very big, but we had enough space to packaging. You can take bus, subway, bike even walk to Myeong-dong, Insa-dong and Buchon in about ten minutes. We've decided we'll choose this hotel every time we go to Korea.

          Location, Good hotel accommodations, Friendly staff
          The hotel is just a few minutes walk from Jongno-3-ga subway station, a station where there are three interconnecting subway lines. There's no worries if you get hungry once you come back late at night to the hotel as food stalls, convenience stores and restaurants are just one block away from the hotel. The rooms are a little cramped up and toilet for the double room is small. Like the hotel's name, the walls are unpainted to serve the concept of staying in a factory. Despite that, all hotel amenities are provided plus you get a free simple self service breakfast every morning. To get to the hotel, stop at Jongno 3-ga, take Exit 5, make a u-turn to the right, walk straight and you should see GS25 and a block of restaurants on the opposite side of the road. The hotel is behind the block so cross the road and walk along the main road on your right. There'll be an alley on your left and you will find the hotel as you walk straight into the alley.

          This is a terrific bargain find for our family of four. It is a little hard to find at first, and the nearby streets look a bit rough with little drinking joints and debris but safe. But don't judge the exterior with the interior. The inside of the hotel is very clean, super helpful staff, good rooms, modern furnishings, simple self-serve breakfast. There is a rooftop terrace with simple chairs and tables to enjoy the views. Best part of this hotel is that it is only two blocks away from InSaDong, a very trendy, fun place and just a block or two from several subway stations. Room was tight n space but clean and well furnished with nice beds, beddings, refridge, flat screen, bathtub, toiletries, even hairbands and cutips.

It is convenient for us to travel to many places, e.g. Myeongdong, Hongik University, etc. Decoration of Hotel Factory is fashion and the room is not small. And it is quiet at night so that we have a good sleep. There is breakfast provided from 07:00-09:00. It is what a surprise for us! Bread!!! Milk!!! Cereal!!!!! Oj!!!!!!

The wall was make like broken, old furniture, old style of bathtub, etc. But, the old things is having language barrier, some of the staff unable to speak english. The best staff was the japanese in short hair, she speak english quite ok. My luggage was parked at the lobby when I going to Ski resort, and even when i Checked out from the hotel. The most nicer place was this hotel is female friendly, they provide a female pack for toiletries, come with a hair band, cotton pad, and cotton buds. No worries when u forget to bring cotton pad. They also provide shampoo, bath soap, conditioner in a big bottle, u can use as much as u like. I think is not those cheap one, because the conditioner really make my hair soft n smooth during the whole day.

          I chose this hotel because it was so close to the Cheonggyecheon. I would walk around that area all night and then go back to my hotel, passing Insadong. I loved it! It's very close to Jongo 3 ha, there are a lot of street vendors until late at night and there also is a post office close by. The staff was very friendly and helpful! This hotel has got to be one of the best price wise. The rooms have an industrial feel to them but I guess it's the concept. It bothered me a bit that I couldn't open the curtains because there was a window right across the street and people could literally watch me change or sleep :/ However, I'm very happy with my experience and glad that I chose this hotel! Will most definitely book again!

          location, friendly staff, comfortable bed
          We only stayed for one night, but we had a nice time staying at the Hotel Factory. It came up on Daum Maps, so it was easy to find. It was surrounded by restaurant options and very close to the subway and tourist attractions. The girl working the front desk was very friendly and willing to give us restaurant recommendations, even searching online for blog reviews when she wasn't sure (although, had we not spoken Korean, I suspect the service would have been just as friendly but maybe a little less informative). The room was small but comfortable, my only gripe being the horrible positioning of a shelf corner directly over the tiny sink (making me terrified to wash my face and end up with a black eye).
