Everything under expectations!!!”
This was my third time staying at K-Guesthouse Dongdaemun Premium and everything was under my expectations. Since I travel frequently to Seoul this is one of my favorite places to stay near Dongdaemun area. Rooms are not big but clean, counter staff are friendly and helpful as always. The location is very convenient (Close to MRT Line 2 / 4 / 5). 100% recommended !!!
Price worth staying”
Stay in K-Guesthouse Dongdaemun Premium on 10/4-13/4 Room Superp clean w each floor water dispenser standby to refill hot & cold water No HOUSEKEEPING available for 3 night stays Bath & hand Towel to be collected in Front Counter Room ACCEPTABLE - fine for us Toilet much bigger but still beside the sink to bath Free use of kitchen utensil in the morning if u wish to cook yourself Self wash after eating & cooking Simple Breakfast serve : Bread, Mee Mug, Cereal, coffee , Juices - until 10:00 AM only
Close to MRT line 2 / line 4 / line 5, easy access to Dongdaemun market area.”
K-Guesthouse Dongdaemun Premium location is about 5-10 minutes by walk from MRT Line 2 / 4 / 5. The guesthouse manager is very friendly and speaks fluent english (normally they have young staff at the counter which is located at 3rd floor). Self-service breakfast start at 8:00AM to 10:30AM (they provide Toast, Milk, Coffee, Cereal, Butter or Jam). For those who are arriving from Incheon Int'l Airport can take the Airport Limousine Bus No. 6001 which stops in-front of Toyoko-Inn Hotel (Close to MRT Line 4 exit #4). I usually travel once or Twice to Seoul and stay at Dongdaemun area, K-Guesthouse Dongdaemun Premium is my favorite place to stay!!! P.S. The guesthouse bathroom provides Shampoo/Conditioner/Shower gel, don't forget to bring your toothbrush and toothpaste if you're staying here ^_^
Brand new guesthouse close to Dongdaemun shopping malls area”
K-Guesthouse Dongdaemun Premium is located closed to the shopping malls areas, it takes 5-10minutes to reach Doota, Lotte Fittin, Hyundai City Outlet, Migliore...etc. On the other side is Dongdaemun Historical Park where at night the view is kind pretty with the lightd up. I've stayed for 4-nights at the standard single room, the room is small but clean, room cleaning service is provided by request if you stay for 3-nights (or more). There is no much facilities in the hotel but it's a good deal if you want to stay at this area. Due to some flight delay I've missed the counter closing time 23:00PM but the counter guy said he would wait for me when I called him. All staff speak well-english. Would stay again in future!!!
You can't find any guesthouse in this area that has everything you need like K-Guesthouse Dongdaemun Premium. I totally enjoyed my stay. It was fantastic. Will definitely stay everytime I visit Seoul.
Great location, helpful staff”
Guesthouse is pretty easy to locate as there is a "K Guesthouse" sign on the rooftop that you can see once fron the subway exit. Though the exit near Lotte Fitin has escalators, it's still difficult to go around if you're lugging more than one suitcase. If you came to Seoul to do shopping, this is a great place to stay at since you dont need to worry about transportation after a whole day of shopping at Dongdaemun's night market. Staff on duty speak good English and readily help guests when needed. I had a hard time understanding the controls for the TV and AC and one of them even came up to the room to explain it to me. The room I booked was quite small, even for one person. Once you open your luggage, theres isn't much room left even to walk to the door. I visited during the winter and the heater worked fine but I imagine it would be quite stuffy during the warmer months without the AC on full blast. Overall a budget accomodation Id recommend. Will definitely consider booking again.
Good hotel experience ”
Its my first to travel alone. Quite good to live in k hotel single room with reasonable price! It's neat and clean with new decoration. Also beautiful view of namsang tower outside the window. Reception staff are helpful and speak well English. It's located near to dongdaemun history n cultural park station and ddp, very convenient hotel at all!
Great stay, clean, friendly, central”
Located in the centre of Dongdaemun, 2 minutes away from the shopping district and 1 min away from subway station which will take you anywhere you need to go in Seoul. Wifi is fast and reliable. Breakfast is decent. Consists of toast, cereal, eggs (all cook yourself), juice and coffee. Room is clean and airy. AC works well. Shower is very good, although is in the same room as the bathroom. This didn't bother me but something to be aware of. Rooftop terrace is very nice and gives lovely view of Seoul. Staff are super helpful and friendly. They all speak English very well. Would definitely recommend
Cozy Place to Stay and Convenient Location”
We participated in an exhibition in Dongdaemun Design Plaza and this guesthouse was so near - it was a 10-minute walk away! There's a subway entrance right across from the building, which made it easier to go to DDP and back. The room was clean and cozy. Walls were thin, though, so we could hear the voices of next door neighbors. But overall, we enjoyed our stay. There was enough room for our luggage and boxes of products. We had wifi and television and a comfortable bed.
Comfortable hotel room with extremely good location.”
Single room does not have windows and only minimal space to move around. May not be able to lay larger luggage bags flat down. However, room is cosy and comfortable. Location of hotel is very good, located very close to Dongdaemun History & Culture Park subway station, making it very easy to travel around Seoul. Highly recommended for short stays.
The location of the guesthouse is really good since it's just a few minutes walk away from those Dongdaemun shopping malls and it's really convenient since it's located at Dongdaemun History and Cultural Park station. Also, even though the nearest exit to the guesthouse is exit no. 4 - which consists of a very long flight of stairs, you can take the escalator up towards Lotte Fittin instead. Guesthouse is really clean, and staff was rather helpful as well - e.g. borrowed me the international plug when mine wasn't working. Even provides shampoo, conditioner as well as body soap in the bathroom. 2 pieces of towels are provided however it's small in size so it's advised to bring your own. Really satisfied with everything in general, will definitely come back to this guesthouse if I'm visiting Seoul again.
Cosy and comfortable guesthouse”
Place was clean (no room service until after 3 day though) and cosy. Staff was really friendly and helpful. We had a problem with our TV connection and the staff were really receptive to our complaints and tried to help up solve our connection problem asap. The facilities were good and plenty. Good location as well as it was located very near Dongdaemun shopping area and the train station. One area I find unsatisfactory was the size of the rooms, which were pretty small! Overall, I find it a good value of money and would probably stay at the same place next time when I go to Seoul.
The location of the Guesthouse is great. It is right by the Dongdaemun History & Cultural park subway station. There is a lot to do around here. The staff were friendly. Breakfast was included and self-serve, the typical toast and cereal or cup noodles. The room was much bigger than I thought. We stayed in a room with two twin beds. The washroom was a bit small though. Also there is a lack of outlets to charge our phones or other electronic devices.
Good Location, pricey, but nice view”
Located on Toegyero aka 'motorcycle street' this street is strewn with various motorcycle shops. Which also makes it that much more noisier at night. It's not TOO bad, but it is noticeable.. Rooms are fairly clean. I got unlucky gettin stuck with a room where someone had the audacity to smoke in it.. :( and found a hair on my bedding Otherwise, the AC is nice, bathrooms clean and staff are English friendly. Located right off the Dongdaemun Culture History Park station out exit 4 and cross the street to your right and cross again.. It's about 60m to the hotel. Very close. All in all, not a bad joint. Pricey, but you're paying for the view and a nice accommodation and not a cheap guesthouse with bunks.
Good enough to stay- convenient location :)”
Not easy to find the hotel if you dont read the direction to the hotel carefully. Anw, it is valuable money, staff could speak english, chinese very well that make me feel comfortable to ask any thing.Breakfast is so so, some white loaf, butter, orange juice, fresh milk, cereal, coffee and tea and cup of noodles. one thing I feel great that is the hotel is near many malls and just go out, cross thenmain street leading to exit 5 of Dongdaemun culture park station I found the street with many food stalls serving tasty korean food and suitable with your pocket. Moreover this street has GS25 nearby, Emart and just 5 mins walking to Starbuck coffee and Lotte Fini where I bought some gifts for my family as well. There are some duty free malls like ddp or daiso nearby, so crowded and amazing to stay a hotel near them. Besides, the room is quite small however the bed and cushion are fine to sleep and I slept well when staying here. The room view is good to see the sceneries outside. 4* for all
Pleasant stay ”
Just get out from Dongdaemun History and Cultural Park station exit 8 and you will see K-guesthouse! A very convenient place to stay, room was clean and staff was friendly.
Great location and comfortable stay”
Despite the room was quite small for us especially with our luggage opened, it is quite hard for us to move around due to the space limitation. However, it was indeed a comfortable stay after all as the location is convenient which is 2-5 minutes walking distance to Dongdaemun History & Culture Park station and 5-10 minutes walking distance to Dongdaemun market. Furthermore, the room was very clean and necessary facilities as well as simple breakfast was provided. Overall, it is a pleasant stay and will definitely choose this hotel whenever I visit Seoul again!
Perfect for a tourist”
Pros: 1)Along Airport bus route; 2)room size decent enough for tidy couple - I didn't go to Seoul just to sit in the hotel room; 3) walking distance to bus stops & subway access; 4) shops, malls & food choices within d area; 5) checking in & out were a breeze; 6) its a self service hotel - towels, tissue, bin plastic, drinking water available anytime Cons: Breakfast can be improved - maybe just add a banana & hard boiled eggs. You'll be eating d same bread, cereal & cup noodles every morning. Better than leaving with an empty stomach though. We got a small fridge in d room so we can also keep some food we wanna munch in d morning. 😊 OVERALL: Will stay in this hotel again, if back in Seoul.
Near many eateries, near subway, near malls”
Near many eateries, near subway (Dongdaemun history and culture station), near malls. Near streets that looks like Russian street as many Russian wordings. Breakfast is cup noodles (mild and hot and 1 person only allow 1 cup), unlimited toast with butter and jam, unlimited brown tea bags, limited thin diluted coffee (think they only brew 1 pot, that's it! You get to drink it if you are lucky), unlimited cereal with milk, unlimited orange juice, free flow water dispenser. Wash your own plates style at basin. The lady receptionist is unfriendly, once accused me for not washing a pile of breakfast plates when I'm near the soiled plates from others... I forgive her perhaps she had a rough morning. The other 2 male receptionists looks unfriendly too, perhaps language barrier, hence choose not to greet guests. Breakfast sitting area is just beside reception, is small, have to wait for seats sometimes. Towels, tissue, toilet paper can get/change at reception. Housekeeping only for more 3 days and above. Room is very small, not able to open luggage, if open, can't walk. Many TV channels but 95% are Koreans without English subtitles. 1 washing machine, free to use but no dryer. Convenience store just below guesthouse which is convenience. Take exit 12 (at Lotte Fitin mall) if you are with big luggages. Will try other hotel or guesthouse if back to Dongdaemun next time.
Value for money & good location”
Stay at this guesthouse for year end holiday with big family. From Incheon Airport, you can take the Limousine bus and stop just nearby, around 300m. Or take the subway to Dongdaemun History & Cultural Park station, which is only 200m away. There's a mini market nextdoor. Reception is at 3rd floor, elevator is available. You can put your luggages here before the check in time. Room is relatively small but clean, showers with hot water, staffs are nice and friendly. Simple breakfast is provided, tea/coffee, orange juice, bread, instant noodle. It's the same all morning. Overall it's a value for money
