It was our first time in Seoul. Amiga Motel is very good. The walk from subway is not too far. It's surrounded by restaurants and drinking places. The motel's owners are very nice to us. We got there before check-in time so we had to wait for a while. They offer to take care of our luggages. The room is... More

I have lived at this hotel for several years while working in Seoul. All the personnel are top-flight, professional and courteous. The morning breakfast buffet has variety, and is always good. The room is always clean, and for a hotel room, spacious. The hotel is close to the orange line, (other side of river) so getting into town, or shopping... More

Budget friendly. The place is just a 5-minutes walk from the subway station-the Jongno 5(0)-ga. There are variety of restaurants and coffee shops close-by.Though the building looks small but the rooms are spacious enough and clean.We had a pleasant stay and will definitely be returning in the future.

Great hotel for the budget travel, four walls big tv, a roof, and piece and quiet. This isn't the Shangra-la but if you are staying here you want tr basic and a budget price and this place is perfect. Great location on edge of central Seoul, close to subway station. Nothing fancy, but not horrible either... Just basic budget motel,... More

For what we paid in peak season I expected a dive but was very pleasantly surpised. The room was spacious and clean and the hotel was in a great location for shopping in the shops and markets. The subway is a few minutes walk as is the airport bus. The service was excellent, plenty of tips and advice on local... More

No complaints with this budget hotel - value for money. has computer & internet access, nice coffee machine at the reception area. Very good location, 5-10 mins walk from subway, Airport bus not far. Room is very small but clean and comfortable. Owners/staff are very strict and serious, it would be nice if they can smile more and provides customers... More

They threw away (or took, whichever) my stuff (a gift for a friend in Shilla Duty Free bag) during room cleaning. When I realized my bag was gone, I had to talk to the owner through an interpreter for almost an hour in the middle of night. The owner acted irritated and flat out disregard the idea saying “our stuff... More

Can't fault it for it's price. Considering it's location, it's value for money. It's convenient to travel to most attractions in Seoul, and especially Dongdaemun if you need to cab back at night after shopping (that place comes alive at 9pm-5am) which would not be too expensive. Basic amenities were provided, and we didn't face any serious issues, except that... More

We booked this motel after reading nice reviews and looking at the pictures on different websites. When we got there for check in the staff were unfriendly and couldn't care less that we there. We then got a short tour of how the utilities worked by a tired older man, whom later would revert to only watch TV-soaps instead of... More

We stayed at Amiga Motel for 9 nights. The price for 9 nights was really cheap, so we didn't expect much when we arrived. In the end we were quite happy with the place: the room was spacious enough, and most importantly it was clean. The building is quite old though. There was a large tv in the room (with... More

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighborhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighborhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighborhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the center of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
