Stayed in a three bedroom suite at Fraser Suites Insadong for 6 days, and my experience here slightly dampened what was otherwise a really nice trip to Seoul. The suite itself was quite spacious, although its cleanliness left much to be desired. The bathrooms were not well ventilated, and one of the bedrooms(without windows) was extremely musty. It would take... More

Excellent location, walking distance from everything we needed. Staff was friendly. Our room was very comfortable and had everything we needed, included an air purifier. That came in very handy after a couple of days in the smog. Bed was comfortable, shower was hot. Lights flickered a little but otherwise it was perfect.

I have stayed at this hotel twice (Nov. 2010 and May 2014) and both experiences were consistent. The rooms are spacious and clean (with western style bathrooms, a living area, an adequate kitchen and a washer/dryer). The front desk service is friendly and helpful and since my 2010 visit the hotel has started providing guests (if you ask) with a... More

As the title states, Fraser Suites Insadong is in one of the best locations in Seoul. Insadong itself can be explored for hours at a time and the subway is right there. Rooms are adequate with a great kitchen set up. The internet at this hotel, however, is abysmal. For W40K one gets two separate wireless logins that cannot be... More

I was staying in this condotel for 8 days and it truly feels like home. There were some flaws but they were so tiny. However, I will try to describe my experiences as clear as possible. I will start with the positive points: - The location is just perfect, around 5 minutes walk from Anguk station (both the subway station,... More

Let me start by saying that this hotel is in a great choice by any measure--it's right in the heart of Insadong, close to shopping and the subway...and down the street from my office--and the suites are first-rate. There were some small issues with items like the dry-cleaning--but the staff is really excellent and all spoke very good English, which... More

If you are thinking of a home away from home in Seoul, look no further than the Fraser Suites Insadong. The hotel is located in a district known for traditional Korean arts and crafts with many restaurants and cafés nearby. The room that I had was a 3-bedroom apartment (apartment 401) which was spacious with a big living room ,... More

We loved being located right in Insadong. The suites are comfortable and generous and the staff are very helpful. The fitness facilities, with pool and sauna were great too. There's lots to see and do right in Insadong, and you are a short walk away from central Seoul attractions.

We arrived and where upgraded to a two bedroom suite. Very good start and I can honestly say it got better. The hotel and room, although a little old and tired, is a very good and comfortable standard. Rooms were very big and very clean. Only draw back was the kitchen smelt of oil. Clearly well used by asian cooks... More

Good value. Staff were very friendly and spoke excellent English. Location was amazing walking distance to everything. Great shopping and markets just around the corner. Lots of eating places close by. Rooms were very big, great having a washing machine/dryer. Very clean and comfortable. Only down was the grease/cooking smell from the kitchen in the room.
