Pleasant stay
This is my third time staying at jongnowon. I like its homely feel. The old lady in charge of the place is friendly but note that she speaks almost no English, although the younger helpers who might be around do. For breakfast, apart from the usual eggs and bread, there is an effort to vary the side dishes of fruit, salad, Korean pancake etc. on a daily basis. Walls can be quite thin but other than that the place is quiet. If you are getting there by subway and have heavy luggage, look for Exit 4 which actually has an escalator.

Simple accommodation
Price & service
Hotel is run by a local family. Nice people but the location is quite far from subway & too quiet for female traveller at night. Breakfast area is very small.

Friendly Owner
Friendly Ajima,Good location,simple but warm breakfast
Deep impression on the owner,is an old women,she is friendly and try to give you whatever information you would need to know or you are asking for ,even though she cant really can speak/understand English,but you can feel her warm heart try to help as much as she can.Every morning,she will prepare different simple breakfast and leave in the kitchen,everyone can share the special menu of the day,sometime is fruit or some simple dish,feel like home,you can also buy some food from market nearby ,keep in the fridge and cook.Room was simple and clean with all basic that you need,just take note bring your own towel.
