The location of the hotel isn't obvious, but it is well worth finding. It is located very close to Jongno 3 station and in a thriving business district that has everything from street food to fast food giants in a short walking distance. The room was very comfortable and had a desktop computer and a partially stocked fridge. There was... More

Airport limousine bus is easiest option from Incheon, drop-off/pick -up is just around the corner (see other posts for directions to hotel). The hotel rooms are small but very clean. Fast wifi. Simple breakfast is provided (we just grabbed some fruit on our way out the door in the morning). The reception staff are EXCELLENT! Extremely helpful and friendly; making... More

A short walk south from the Jongno 3 station. A mini-mart located nearby, a movie theater, street food vendors. The Cheongguecheon river is about 50 yards from the hotel(south). A desktop computer is in the room along with free complimentary water, soda, and juice every day. Easy to get in and out since the hotel is only 6 floors high.... More

This hotel is great if you want to walk to the old palaces, Insadong shopping and eating street, the Cheongguecheon stream, and there is also a subway station on the corner. The friendly staff were very kind and helpful, lending me an umbrella when it rained, giving directions and advice. They also kindly arranged to clean a vacated room very... More

Great location, just a short walk from Jongno-3-ga subway station, which serves 3 different subway lines. Its located in a small alley near Starbucks. Its a small room, but for the price we paid (significantly cheaper than other hotels in Seoul), it had everything I needed - fast wifi, clean room with all the amenities, friendly staff, small selection of...

Hotel was located in downtown Seoul, close to the stream that runs through Seoul, Cheong-gye-cheon. It is easy to get to the main attractions by walking. We spent most of our time walking to the various attractions, even up to Namsan. The staff knows some English and were very helpful. Breakfast of bread, cereals and cup noodles were supplied as...

We had problem trying to find the hotel in our first day. Luckily for us, a kind Korean gentleman was more than willing to help us with the direction. He even helped us call for cabs and gave them instructions. If not for his help, we have no idea how late we will get to the hotel. The room, while... More

We stayed at GS Hotel for 5 nights in May. The hotel is in a very good location, within walking distance of many of Seoul's cultural sites (such as the palaces and markets) if you wish to explore the city by foot, and a 2 minute walk to the subway station. As other reviewers have said get off at Jongno-3-ga... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in April. As other reviewers have said, the hotel is very basic, which is what we expected for the very reasonable price. We stayed on the second floor and the room was very quiet and clean. The linens were of higher quality than would be expected for the price. The shower... More

The hotel is nothing flashy and rather nondescript. In fact, it could do well to put up a larger signboard as it is hard to find, though centrally located. It is just 5minutes away from the metro, but because it is tucked away in a small lane, it took us quite a while to find. The taxi drivers in general... More
