Old hotel but well maintained. More in the traditionally important places of Seoul instead of new high profile areas like Gangnam. I chose this hotel because of the bigger rooms as that's my preference but you might possibly prefer one in south of the Han River like where Gangnam is. Staff are polite but business-like. Not a bad location but... More

It is a star hotel, aged though. But for the price it offered, it is highly recommended. The location is quite central, on a side of a main road, with landmarks (gates and some trendy buildings that we didn't visit) in walking distance. There is restaurants and stores nearby. Seoul station is 1km away. We traveled by car so not... More

The hotel is located at the center of the Seoul. The hotel is located just across the City Hall, and very close to palaces and Chung-gye stream. This hotel is also within walking distance of Myoung-Dong which is shopping district. The hotel is a little bit outdated. The staffs are very friendly and speak English very well.

A bit roomier than most hotel rooms in Seoul. The hotel is very clean and the bedding is beyond comfortable. Everything is vey controllable with a central sort of keypad that controls the lighting, AC, and everything else. The view is quite lovely as it's in city center. I would request a room high up. The service here is killer.... More

I've chosen this hotel because I got just one full day in Seoul and haven't time to waste with bus or taxi to visit the city center. I couldn't choose better. The location is very good, I visit a couple of great buildings and I found a amazing restaurant (not fast food, I real Korean Restaurant) just walking!!!

Great hotel, very centrally located near City Hall. The Korean Air Limousine bus from Incheon airport drops off directly outside - this is a very good way to travel from the airport into downtown Seoul It is expensive (as is all of Seoul) but their are many small restaurants around the area which are much more reasonable to eat at

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.
