I stayed in hotel for 4 nights.The hotel location is very good. The price is reasonable. Hotel hasn't restaurant and many services but I think many travelers don't need and don't use many of these services.

We stayed here for 4 nights over Chuseok weekend and we loved it. The hotel is difficult to find (we had people on the street trying to help us after the taxi got lost), but once you know where it is it's easy to find again! It is an older style hotel but that's obviously what you get for the... More

Hotel isn't as hard to find as I thought,, but I would recommend printing a map to take with you. Easy to get to from either line 3 or 5 on subway so no worries there. Room is small but completely adequate, clean and quiet. Location just off the busy streets with loads of shopping and restaurants so you can't... More

The Saerim Hotel has everything that a budget traveler would need - clean rooms, cheap rates, and a fantastic location. Let's start with the positives: -Very central location in Insadong with a subway station and an airport bus stop about a 5-10 minutes walk away -Lots of restaurants, cafes, and bakeries nearby -Lively and safe location, feels safe at night...

Searim hotel had everything we needed. It is right in the middle of Insadong and easy to find. The room was clean and neat, and the staff provided everything we needed. The big TV was a nice treat. There are many tourist attractions in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.

I am a single older woman and very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Subway and bus stops are very nearby, interesting shops are on the pedestrian street half a block away, and two historical palaces are within walking distance to the hotel. The room was clean and big. Big tv screen and computer in the room on 4th... More

I stayed here on my recent visit to Seoul from 13th-19th July, 2013. The Saerim is a pleasant and comfortable budget hotel, has clean rooms, friendly staff, and is well located in Insadong. It is about a 10 minute walk from either Jungno 3-(sam)-ga or Jonggak subway stations. However, as mentioned by other reviewers, it is a bit difficult to... More

This hotel is located on the main tourist street in Insadong. The hotel is old and a little run down, but very clean and the staff are friendly. The location is fantastic, close to the Palace and subway. There are lots of great restaurants in the area as well as street food. Would stay again.

Ive stayed at Saerum a few times. Mainly as its cheap and cheerful and not used as a love motel, so you can check in early without paying extra. The rooms are much better these days as they have had a clean up. However, the entrance and hallways are still pretty shabby. For the price, it's a great little hotel... More

OVERVIEW: Saerim Hotel is a pretty decent hotel as long as you have realistic expectations. I was put off by the place on my first night since the location was hard to find and some aspects of the hotel were a little shabbier than I imagined. But the next two nights I stayed improved my overall attitude when I considered... More
