            Great Staff”
            The staff at the sunbee hotel really make your stay in Insadong easy. This hotel is great for first time travelers to Seoul who are looking to stay near the traditional district. The hotel is adjacent to the Insadong traditional street and within walking distance of local party areas as well as some of Seoul's famous Castle Grounds. The staff were really friendly and were able to converse easily in English. They helped us book a tour to the DMZ as well as provided us with any info we needed. They even upgraded our room free of charge. The hotel itself is down an alley so it's a bit difficult to find but once you get there it's easy to remember the way. Again, I would highly recommend the Sunbee to first time visitors.

            Sunbee stood out for its staff service, delish breakfasts and spacious rooms. All hotels had central heating which made the room stuffy and warm. Sunbee was the only one with aircon option available and had a remote control guide in English! They serve up yummy breakfasts too for KRW7000. Several staff spoke English and were ready to help with our restaurant reservations and tour bookings. Thumbs up to the team!

            I travelled with my 6-month-old baby and the hotel arranged for futon on the floor for my baby. Staff are very friendly and allowed us to check in early. They also helped to book taxis whenever we requested. We had breakfast at the hotel one day and it was KRW7,000 for a Western set. Location wise very convenient to Insadong. I would stay here again when I go back to Seoul. The futon is perfect for family with young kids and the room is very spacious.

            The location, location, location could not be more perfect. I walked to Insadong, Myungdong, Cheongyechon Stream and saved tons of time and money. The brunch is really really good so don't skip it. Coffee is weak but there are two Starbucks within walking distance. The staff works very hard to make it all come together for a wonderful stay. Definitely will be back here.

            I highly recommend this hotel. Staying here saved me so much time. I walked out to the main strip of Insadong for dinner, evening strolls, and Myungdong shopping. The staff is easy to communicate with and they make it all work. The bathroom is fantastic since there is a separate toilet from the shower. Parking was a bit tight but again the staff makes me all work. Breakfast/brunch is excellent and freshly prepared. The breakfast coffee is weak but I just walked to the many Starbucks or even teahouses in the neighborhood. The subway station is close but since there was five of us, we just took taxis to avoid transferring between lines and ended up saving time and energy.

            Just stayed one night with wife and son in a double/single bed combo room. We were allowed to check in early (at noon) since a room was ready. The 5,000won breakfast was good for the price. The only strange thing was that while we were at breakfast someone (I assume the maid) was in our room and began to clean even though our stuff was out in plain sight and we clearly had not checked out yet. No harm was done but it was a bit strange. Overall a nice stay and would do it again in the future.

            Fantastic base to explore Seoul”
            This is my second visit to Seoul so I knew exactly which area I should be staying in to make the most of my time. This hotel is at Insadong, one of Seoul's traditional streets, lined with restaurants and traditional handicraft stores. There are 2 subway stops within easy walking distance, although we used taxis as they are quite reasonable and saved us time trying to figure out how to get to specific places. We walked to Bukchon, Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung. Took a taxi from Myeongdong as we were tired at the end of the day. Other than the fantastic location, the hotel itself is well designed for comfort. Our twin room was spacious, the bed, pillows and duvet very comfortable. We liked the very small ante-room where we could leave our shoes. Everything worked in our room - if it doesn't, you just need to ask the reception how it work. Breakfast here is pretty simple and straightforward, but there are so many options along Insadong. And one more plus - the hotel is near the Insadong stop of the airport limousine bus. KRW 15,000 per person each way. Very convenient.

            First of all the hotel is strategically located to almost everything despite its secluded place in the city. It was near to all shopping areas especially to cultural and souvenir stores in Insadong. Restaurants and bars are just 3 blocks to walk while the famous water stream strip park is within walking distance too. Palaces and temples are just around the block. Mcdonald store is a block away and I love the street food selling at the nearby corner. What was nice about the staff was that a staff fetch us about a block away when we got lost looking for the hotel coming from the airport. Public transport and main road was about a 5 minutes walk. There were only a few choices for the breakfast which was included in our stay. The room Deluxe Double was quite spacious because it consist of a single bed and a queen size bed. Hence, you dont need to request for and extra bed. Furthermore, the bathroom was also large complete with bathtub and shower room, the toilet had a separate room plus the lavatories as well. I has a small entrance foyer in the room to leave your shoes and umbrellas. Wifi was extremely fast inside the room. Overall, the stay was pleasant and comfortable, extremely budget friendly and no hazzle during our 3 nights of stay.

            Perfect location near Anguk Station”
            The hotel is located near Anguk station and beside Insadong. Very accessible to nearby palaces and even walkable to Myeon Dong (15minutes). Room is very clean and staffs are friendly and helpful! The staff allowed us to check in early and helped us book a last minute Taxi to the airport. There were some construction going on during the day time but it didn affect us as we were out during the day.

            Dear Koksiang Thank you for staying with us. I truly appreciate your warm feedback. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and I hope you experienced lots of things in Seoul. However I am so sorry for the noise during the day. Now we are under construction in some parts of the hotel to provide better service but, it is almost done at the moment. I really appreciate your understanding. We promise to provide better service next time. I look forward to welcoming you back to the Sunbee hotel in the future. If you have any inquiries, please feel free to contact us. Best wishes, Sunbee hotel

            Cute place in Insadong”
            Tucked in an alley in Insadong the Sunbee was a great place to explore Seoul from. The room was comfortable if a little dark and the hotel staff were very helpful.

            Perfect location, breakfast, and laundry!”
            For those interested in the palaces, most are in easy walking distance, as is the museum of contemporary history. Insadong is around the corner with a variety of wonderful restaurants and little shops. The area managed to have everything we wanted without being overly commercial. The staff was attentive, breakfast was delicious and varied each day, and there is free laundry which was a huge convenience. The rooms were comfortable with the typical amenities, and the huge bathroom was my favorite. I would absolutely stay again in the future and recommend it to anyone on a tourist or business trip.

            Great base for exploring Seoul”
            We chose this hotel due to a friend's recommendation. It was absolutely perfect for our two-day layover in Seoul. The Insadong neighborhood is a great place to try Koren foods and for souvenir shopping. The hotel staff was very helpful in arranging taxis and making restaurant recommendations. They also loaned us plug adapters to charge our phones. The rooms and bedding were very clean. The bath is big and comfortable. As we were recovering from jet-lag, the blackout blinds were perfect for daytime sleeping (but only in some rooms).

            Spacious, pleasant rooms and helpful staff”
            We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at Sunbee Hotel. The Korean style room had an extremely comfortable bed and pillows. The bathroom was large, modern and clean. The main ways it appeared to be Korean rather than European were sliding window screens - good for blackout but could not be fully opened for much of a view - and the low table with cushioned floor seating - which we did not use. With hot and humid weather during our stay, the room A/C was very effective. We enjoyed being so close to a major subway station and many sites of interest. In particular we were impressed by how helpful the staff were and the English speaking man on reception, Kunwoo Kim, went out of his way to help us negotiate car rental and with travel advice. We highly recommend the Sunbee!!
