Top location”

Location: 2mins walk to the station, eateries and cafes everywhere, walking distance (700m) to Ikseondong and Insadong with beautiful cafes. 1 train stop to the palaces and Hanok Village. Excellent location! Room: on the smaller side, very clean and bedding was comfortable. Facilities: laundry room available on our floor which super convenient, the use of the laundry wash and dry machines were all complimentary. Luggage storage available if you need to store for a few days whilst travelling elsewhere. There is a gym but we didn’t get a chance to visit. Reception: Speak English, very helpful and polite and checkin was quick and easy. We were a group of 7 and they let us check in early.

Had a blast staying here ”

The hotel’s location is the best thing since it’s close to every tourist destination like the palaces, hanok village, insadong, temple, etc. It is also close to myeongdong and dongdaemun. Also, coming here from the airport is easy since there’s a bus that stops near the hotel - you just need to walk for around 6 mins. There are also coffee shops, convenient stores and a lot of food places around the area so it’s very convenient. I will definitely checkin here again on my next trip to Korea 💜

Travel with an 8-year-old child ♥️”

5 minutes walk to Jogyesa Temple and Insadong, 10 minutes walk to Gwanghwamun Square. Great location to stay with kids!! Outside noise can be heard a bit, but both me and my child are not that sensitive, so we slept well like white noise. The bedding was comfortable and nice.

Great location and hotel!”

The location is very convenient for traveling by subway or bus, and it is relatively close to anywhere. I heard that breakfast is delicious, so I want to stay with breakfast next time! The hotel room is clean and the amenities are perfect. I want to stay again!
