The location is ok but the staff and service were horrible. They didn't understand a word in english and didn't try to help. They overpriced the room because they didn't want backpackers in the hotel and they didn't even want to show us the room before booking. All in all a very bad place.

Pretty good location near Anguk station and bunch or restaurants and pubs. The hotel is very dated and needs a make over. It is definitely a budget hotel. The rooms are very small for the price though compared to other hotels in Seoul. The reception staff were fairly helpful.

Stayed one night on business. Price and location were best selling points. Room was dated but clean and spacious. Bathroom with tub. Flat screen tv and fridge in room. Bring your own shampoo. A/C was on but not very cool. Bed was comfotable- firm but not a board. Hotel has one very tiny elevator so wait is long during rush... 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...
