This apartment has a great location in the centre of seoul. It's a few min walk from all the great attractions. We found the apartments difficult to find. The building is brown stone but the apartments are brown sweet. Local's only really know brown stone. The entrance isn't very clear. We go the 6015 bus from the airport to the... More

We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment in Brown Suites Residence. We had to register at the front desk before dragging our luggages to the 4th floor to walk another 40 metres to change lifts to the 12th floor. That was not convenient but we discovered that we could then use the lifts at the 12th floor directly to the 1st... More

The location is great, within walking distance from Seoul Station and Chungjeongno station. The main entrance to the Residence is on the other side of the building facing the Seosomun Park along Seosomun-ro 8 gil. The price for what we get is great, we get 2 queen size beds in Room 417 facing Cheongpa-ro. 3 persons are allowed in the... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 girls) spent 6 nights in Brown Suites. This is our first time staying here (we stayed in previous residences before) and I am very happy with the accommodation. The location is good. Just 10 mins walk to Seoul Station (Line 1 and 4) or Chungjeongno Station (Line 2). We reserved the family... More

Two couples stayed for 7 nights and enjoyed our stay overall. The location was very convenient for us to get acquainted with Seoul. The hotel is minutes away from the Chungjeongno subway station (this is also the Incheon airport shuttle stop), the complex has many restaurant options, a Paris Baguette nearby (our primary source of breakfast), a Lotte Mart about...

This place has different names- Brown Suite or Brown Stone. This is not an hotel but what is called an 'offistel' in Korean-small furnished apartments rented long term by students, young office workers etc. it looks like the owner is renting out vacant rooms as an hotel. Overall this is a pretty good value for money- spacious rooms, good location.... More
