Travelled to Seoul in october 2014 to visit our son who is teaching English in Korea. We had booked a 2 bedroom suite as he was coming up to Seoul for the weekend to meet us. The hotel was short walk from the subway station and easy to find. When we arrived to check in we had been upgraded to... More

The hotel is an excellent choice for longer visits as it allows comfortable self-catering stays with the convenience of some hotel services (room cleaning, concierge). It includes a fully equipped kitchen and laundry. Located right next to Insadong Street - a street filled with Korean restaurants, Korean culture and craft shops and filled with local and international tourists alike, and... More

Stayed here for two nights in a 2 bedroom apartment for a business trip. The apartment was clean and well appointed with 2 bathrooms, washer/dryer machine, full kitchen with fridge, microwave and cookery/cutlery. But one of the air conditioning units in one of the bedrooms was not functioning. Aside from that, the location is ideal for access to the tourist... More

we visited seoul for few days and stayed at Frazer suites. The hotel is apartment style with full Kitchen. Rooms are spacious and clean. Hotel staff are really friendly . The hotel location is excellent for bus or subway transport within Seoul and for the airport limousine. We recommend this hotel for people who prefer the apartment style hotels.

Cannot believe the reviews of Fraser suites on the main page. Way too much negativity. Just got back from a seven night stay here and it was perfect. It isn't outdated at all. Perfect location and the amount of space you get for your money is awesome compared to what mid-range to top hotels offer. Top top place to stay.... More

We stayed in this property for more than a week and were really disappointed with the service . The staff at the reception didn't know how to solve the problems and didn't seem very concerned with client service . It seems clear that they are not receiving proper training . Be cautious when you are proposed an upgrade , it... More

I stayed at this hotel in December 2014 and January 2015. For the first trip we booked a two bedroom apartment and were upgraded to a three bedroom, for the second trip I was staying in a one bedroom. It is right in the heart of Insadong and the location could not be better. I took an Airport shuttle bus... More

We had a great time staying at this hotel. The staff were very helpful and the suites a generous size. The site is right next to the pedestrian mall area with lots of little shops, restaurants and friendly people - an area with character. Two train stations are close and easy to use. This would be our choice if we... 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.
