3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel is a bit old, but very clean. The breakfast is very good with a lot of varieties. All the staff are very polite and helpful, and is at a very convenient location. I was with a tour group that booked this hotel. The area is very safe.

Nice and comfortable rooms, spotless clean. The hotel is in a commercial area, and right in front of it is the the busstop for the airport shuttle. Breakfast is (I'd say) excellent but I'll admit that my experience with Korean breakfasts is limited. I can't really compare, but I liked it. The wifi connection is one of the fastest and... More

The hotel is located in the core of town down, we had a chance to visit several places by walk. Great breakfast included traditional food and drinks, and friendly personal service. Not everyone's able to speak English, but the management was very kind and helpful.

Staying in Seodaemun

Neighborhood Profile
Seodaemun
Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and historic buildings that are scattered throughout. Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or touring more historically somber sites such as Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong in particular is a beautiful place for a stroll in spring and autumn.
