We stayed here in the summer of 2014 for 3 nights. The location is great because it is close to the Jonhno 3-ga subway station and within walking distance to several landmarks if you prefer walking. Our group consisted of 4 women in our early 20s, and we felt safe in the area at all times. The hotel, as many... More

Pro: Location is superb. 1. Near jongno 3 ga metro station which is interchage of 3 lines. The hotel is just 100m walk from exit 5 line 5. 2. Located on the street full of eateries, the meal on the street is relatively cheper than other places. 3. Just few streets away from insadong and Bukchon Hanok Village, Gyeongbokgung and... More

Bed sheet lot of stains, never change even aft requested. Hot water brown in color, only cold water in winter. They offer bath at sona but they are always closed when we are back to hotel at night. Very bad experience.

Like most here, I got this place for ~$50/night on Hotwire. Let me first start by giving you the best directions from Incheon.: Buy tickets on the 6002 bus. Will cost W10K ~= $10USD. The bus will let you off on Jogno 3 Sam ga. The bus has screens and voice notices, so you wont miss it. Walk back to... More

It's a little run-down around the edges and they could do with a fresh lick of paint in some of the rooms and the bed linen and towels were on the old side... so why give the "Biz" a Very Good review?

We stayed here for five nights in late June. All in all, we were highly satisfied. PROS: • The location is perfect. Lots of cultural sites of interest nearby, and markets and street food aplenty in the area. It’s also extremely easily reached by subway. Do NOT take a cab to come here from the airport – you’re wasting your... More

Good, and suprised so many Hong Kong people stayed there, almost 70% of all we met in the breakfast room, and not much Mainlanders. This point is very important because the normal soundproof of premises converted from domestic buildings are usually minimal, and the quality of people living around you may affect your sleep seriously. The service was definitely the... More

Ok, so the room is small, the window is tiny. I'm sure the air conditioning is so so in the summer, the decor is a bit hostel like, but right now, in November it is pretty near perfect.

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.
