i travelled with my 5yrs old daughter during winter. we understand basic Korean but it was not a problem. Hotels personnel speaks English. there's a 7-11 at the lobby. hotel has no room heater. Thats the only downside.

For the money we paid , there is nothing to complain. Take note that WIFI is only available in the lobby.

All the basics were covered without complaint, except that we had to ask to have the A/C turned on and had no in-room control. It's the extras that were lacking. Free WiFi only in the lounge? Even cheap motels have computers in their rooms to browse online.

              I liked my stay here. Although it's a little bit far from the bus stops that I need to be in. There are also tourist attractions nearby. If you want some quiet place but still in the know of all the happenings, then you should stay here.

              Nice spacious room with good shower facilities. Air-con was a little weak initially, but it got stronger and colder after the first night. Wide range of TV channels to choose from. Bring your own toothbrush. Keycard is uniquely designed. Easy to make your way here via Anguk Station.

              Overall the hotel is in good location and staff are nice. not much facility just a room to stay and put your head down and is cleaned. Only criticism is the air condition very weak, in particular at night, it's almost turned off making it very difficult to sleep.

              location, staff, room rates
              The best thing is that it's so close to Insadong Street, a one-block walk. It's also pretty close to the subway station, and surrounded by lots of mom-and-pop grocery stores; and there's a 7-11 in the building. Room was fairly spacious; beds were good if you like firm mattresses. Staff was nice. Our room smelled faintly of cigarette smoke so they let us look at another vacant room; we stayed where we originally were and opened the windows, and the air cleared after an hour or so, so it was fine. Drinking water, both hot and cold, was complimentary at the water coolers in the hall. The only small fault we found was that we couldn't control the temperature of the room, which was monitored by a central heating system. As a result, it got a bit warm at night, but when we left the windows partially open it was okay.

              We came back again and stayed at the hotel for another 3 nights and we had more or less a good time here. The staffs are quite helpful and friendly. There's a 7-11 at the ground floor besides the lobby and also an ice cream parlor. The hotel is situated almost next to the Insadong market so we could just cross the road to get there. And it is very convenient to get around with public transport because it is only 5 minutes walk from the subway station. The room was cozy and clean, the furniture are in vintage style and a bit old. And this time we had a small problem with the air co that it didn't work, but the staffs came and fixed it right away. The breakfast is a bit too ordinary for a 3 star hotel.

              Unfortunately can not tell much of the hotel as we were sentenced to the small building beside the main entrance. The was a water machine just outside the room but in the morning when I wanted to make some coffee (that I had with me as you do not get any in the hotel) the hot water was finished (or was not working all together as I haven't tried to use it before) and only cold water was available. Very cold bathroom and AC managed to reheat the room only when it was on through the whole night. But plus was that they had 2 blankets per person to use. Toothbrush/paste, aftershave and body milk and 2 bottles of water were in the room. Very close to some old stile village with lots of dinning options.

              Insadong Crown Hotel is located very close to a subway station in a vibrant neighborhood full of restaurants and small shops. The friendly staff is ready to assist in any situation. The only minus is the lack of a second room key in case one leaves the key in the electric contact for charging devices.

              Handy to subway, inexpensive but atmospheric and friendly restaurants are nearby. There is a handy mini-mart on the premises. A small coffee shop is also on the ground floor. Our room was spacious and everything worked well. The room was very quiet and spacious with a small lounge and coffee table. Would highly recommend.

              cost-worthy hotel”
              corteous staffs, they clean the room every morning and replace the towels and toiletries, good location
              the staffs were friendly even though they are not fluent in english, atleast one of them tried using google translate to have an idea about our certain request. good location. nice for its cost. bad thing is that they don't allow us to extend our check-out time even if we checked in late. our flight is late night so we requested to extend for about 4hours but they will charge whole day for few hours.

              Price, staff professionalism and cleanliness
              I wasn't expecting much but after being checked in early after a long flight and given a free upgrade, I felt appreciated as a customer beyond expectations. The staff greeted with professionalism and always were present in standby to help. The rooms were very clean and facilities were substantial. Only down side was no shampoo but this was available in the 7 eleven down stairs. Thanks again.

              location, price, quiet neighborhood
              Old building with clean rooms I noticed unpleasant noise from running water and reported the problem. But hotel attendant sent an inspector later and by the time he arrived thenoise stopped. And then noise continued on and off irregular frequency. They did not bother exchanging rooms just by listening to tourist.
