Basic Love motel”
Near subways, near restaurants, free WiFi.
This is a basic love hotel. It is a bit long in the tooth. Bathroom was old. Poor value for money, especially on weekends when rates are higher.

A bit old, but cosy love motel”
Excellent location, friendly staff, very quiet
The Picasso has probably seen better days but I would call it a charming love motel. The location is in a small alley off the "Jongno Food Street". The whole area is definitely nightlife oriented with a lot of restaurants, bars and motels around but my room was away from the street and I heard nothing at all. The Picasso is run by two ladies, both don´t speak much English but they were friendly and one of them very helpful when I thought my bathroom light was not working (I had not noticed that all the lights were centrally controlled). I had booked one night and ended up staying four nights because it was a very good base to explore Seoul.

Great hotel for a great price!”
Unbeatable price, nice room, very lovely staff, and the perfect location.
My husband and I have been in Korea for two years. We have stayed at numerous hotels throughout the country. It is difficult to find a nice budget hotel in Seoul. We booked the Picasso on our last weekend before we left for home. We were so upset that we didn't find this place sooner. The staff bent over backwards to help us and made sure everything was in order. I don't think they see a lot of internet bookings due to their cheap price and the fact that they are a "Love Motel." Budget travelers should not be intimidated by this. Korea is an amazingly safe country and even the somewhat seedy areas are perfectly safe for tourists. Every foreigner that we know of in Korea uses "Love Motels" as a budget accommodation. If we ever return to Seoul, we know where we will stay. What Picasso Motel lacks in flash of fancy hotels, they make up for in price, location, and nice staff. Every room has a computer with internet, air con, and a flat screen tv. It is located in the very popular Insadong neighborhood around the corner from the subway stop. It is very easy to navigate the city from here. I don't usually leave reviews at all but felt this hotel deserved a special shout out! Enjoy your time in Seoul!

Excellent location. Great staffs”
Location, Staffs, Convenient
Although it is a little hard to find when we first arrived. Hotel is located just in the heart of Seoul where everything is closes by. If you are a good walker, then every place can be reached on foot. Hotel staffs are friendly. Although they having a bit difficulty understanding English, good thing is they are trying to understand you.

Great location but very poor quality room”
i would not advise staying here. whilst the location is ideal, the rooms are very poor and you would get better value staying in other hotels in the surrounding area.

It was okay ”
It was centrally located-it was right in the heart of the Korean area-loved it.
the only problem i had was a communication issue...the son spoke english but the other workers didn't but...they were friendly. i knew when i book this place what i was getting into...i want to connect to the people and for me it was great. the place was hard to find and i had to have someone from the airport to go on-line to get me the phone number to call in because my plane was late on arriving. you got to get to this place before 8:00pm!
