My regulas hotel was booked. Hotel has small rooms but very clean.Staff were great The night of my stay i went to roam around the area and found a quaint little pub called BREW 3.14. The owner is French and the chef too. Pizza was fantastic and the IPA beer was tasty. I stayed until later that night. A must... More

I came on May'12 with group of 37 peoples which use 18 Rooms. Our bus can't stop infront of the hotel so we have to walk & carry our lugguage bit far which is uncomfortable situation for family with senior citizen & children. The worst is there's only 1 Small Lift / Elevator which run very slow so we have... More

It is well situated to visit Insadong. There was old carpet on the floor of our double room quite small and in day time we felt cold. No breakfast included. The restaurant on the firt floor was not heated.It seems to be overpriced. The Doulos Hotel for less money is much much better. If you book at this hotel a... More

Awesome location--walking distance to a number of tourist sites, super close to Anguk station and plenty of places to eat and drink close by. The hotel is somewhat older. Definitely a budget hotel. The distinction between smoking and non-smoking room is muddy but our room was fine though we are non-smokers. Staff spoke Japanese and English. (Better Japanese than English... More

I stayed here earlier this year largely because of positive reviews from this website. This was not my first trip to Seoul. It was was, in fact, my 8th. My regular hotel was sold-out, so I tried the Crown. Probably never again. No, it's not a bad place. It's just over-priced. The rooms are teeny -weeny, even by Seoul standards,and... More

The hotel is in a great location, with several museums and historic palaces within walking distance. The airport bus (#6011) drops you off at Anguk metro/subway station, from there make a right at the corner and just keep walking until you see a white, eight-story building across the street; even if you don't see it just cross the street at...

I went to this hotel as it was included in the package tour that I bought from Japan. It was very nice staying there but I think that the hotel in general is set up for Japanese people and so me speaking Japanese helped a lot. Rooms were very clean, the bathroom very big, as was the bed. The breakfast... More

Average hotel in the middle of a great city with good location. The hotel is within 7 blocks of the shuttle stop to the airport. The people of Seoul are unbelieveably friendly and the food is safe to eat - even on the street. Taxis are cheap. Room: - A/C did not work well - Shower empties onto the floor... More

HOTEL CROWN INSADONG I stayed here for 2 nights - mainly because I could book it on the Internet and it was under US$100 pn (although by the time taxes and other charges were added it came to US$110 pn). When I arrived, they seemed to have no record of my booking! Anyway I was given a room and when... More
