Perfect!”

Clean, friendly, wi-fi

This was our 3rd stay in this hotel during our trip (we travel around) The Hotel is very close to the subway which makes it convenient to get anywhere in Seoul easily. Insa-dong is only a 5 minute walk away as are the 2 big main palaces of Gyeongbokgung & Changdeokgung. Our room on the 8th floor was clean, modern and comfortable with tea/coffee facilities as well as a fridge and there is a hot/cold water dispenser on each floor, wi-fi connection was fast and stable, and the staff were helpful and friendly - My only regret is we could not stay here on our last night in Korea due to it being fully booked!(We stayed nearby at the Jongno Cutee - see review!) Overall I would recommend the Insadong Crown Hotel to anyone!

Super value for money ! ”

Value, clean, easily accessible

Had a great stay in INsadong crown! reason being it is really cheap for 50plus a night! I think it's really good for travelers that will not spend lots n lots of time in the hotel room. although it's not some 5 star hotels with breakfast, good views and swimming pools, it's really a good deal. It's clean and really easily accessible. Insadong street is only just a street away! ( do ask staff about the short cut, me and my friend only realise we're a street away on the second last day) . Top attractions such as gyeongbukgung and cheongdukgung is just nearby! I reccomend the secret garden tour in Cheongdukgung! there is english tour, korean tour and japanese as well. just look out for the time! :)

Excellent location and friendly staff”

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.

Last minute surprize!”

The location was perfect, which meant that we were able to go shopping, eat at resturants and site-see on our own, which you aren't always able to do in a foreign country. The staff spoke English and were more than helpful - and they always greeted us with a smile and "hello", the room was spotless and it was obvious the cleaner took pride in her work.
The only thing that needs improvement is that the breakfast was cold every morning, although the food was great it would have been wonderful if it had been hot.

This was a last minute booking and it must have been fate because this hotel was just perfect for us. We were made very welcome, the breakfast was good, the room was clean and the location couldn't have been better - our daughter got married there that week so we will be going to Seoul often and will always stay at the The Crown Hotel. We highly recommend it!!

Good Budget Hotel in the Heart of Seoul”

Walking distance to sightseeing sites, art gallery district and tourist spots Close to Anguk metro station Good price
internet access is only in business center they don't really have non-smoking rooms cabbies don't know the hotel so make sure you take their business card or tell them it's near Anguk station

Overall, I like Crown Insadong Hotel. It's older but clean and the cleaning people clean your room the second you leave. Caters to Japanese tourists so the staff speaks English and Japanese. Outstanding location! 10 minute walk to the palace and temple. The arts district is across the street and restaurants are everywhere and open 24/7. The breakfast buffet is decent but it's not abundant. I thought it was pretty good. You can't get toast, eggs, cereal, juice and coffee in the US for $7 unless you're in Vegas!

Pretty good”

internet in lobby, good water pressure
smoke smell in hall

This hotel seemed fine for the price. The location was great. I like walking and was able to get to the markets, the fun nightlife, art stuff in Insadong, etc. without even using the (also conveniently nearby) subway system. The breakfast was a slightly odd mix of traditional Korean food and Western stuff, but was quite fun for the two breakfasts I had there at least. My fav was the balls stuffed with red bean paste. As I am only 5'1" the shower was not at all a prob. I could easily touch the ceiling tho so I'll bet somneone 6' tall would feel quite cramped. The staff spoke reasonably good English and were helpful. Overall I'd def stay here again if the price was right.

great location, good for value”

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.

A good hotel with 7-11”

location, price, room

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.

My stay at the Insadong Crown Hotel would have been quite good, except the A/C was broken in the summer. The staff brought us fans and offered to move us to a smaller room. So hot in this hotel... I'm sure it would have been a superb visit without this discomfort.

Location, cleanliness, Wi-fi

We arrived after a long flight, check in was easy and the staff were friendly - our room was one of the older ones but did have good wi-fi however there were no tea/coffee facilities in the room and the air conditioning was not very effective and blew any cool air towards the door and not into the room, we did query this on our way out for dinner that evening and they said to remind them on our return and they would see into it, but when we returned it was a little cooler so it was ok. We made 3 separate bookings at this hotel and the following day we changed rooms to a more modern one (see next review)
