It was really good hotel for my friend and me. We were there in the autumn. Everything was great! The staff contact us by e-mail about 10 times to answer our questions and send us really good plan how to go to the hotel. It is really near Changgyeonggung Palace (창경궁관리소) and 2 underground stations ("Jongno 3 ga" and "Anguk").... More

The hotel is in a perfect area. Only five minutes walk to Insadong Street, where all the awesome shops and cute places are. Ten minutes walk to subway station. Fifteen minutes walk to Hanok Village and another ten minutes for Chandokgung Palace (if i spelled that right ^_^) So it a perfect little place that easy access to many museums... More

Spent 3 nights here in April with 3 other couples. We all had double rooms that were quiet, clean and cozy. Please note, only hand towels are provided as this is more of a hostel than a hotel, but they will provide as many as you need. There is a dining area with hot water, coffee and internet for those...

The location of the hotel is really perfect cause you can easily reach a lot of famous attractions of Seoul and besides that there is a metro station near the hotel. The staff is really really nice and polite!!

For the price, one cant complain much about the size of the room. The hotel however is near gyeongbokgung, myeongdong, bukchon village, tagpol park and insadong is a 5-10mins walk. They serve toast, fruits, butter/jam and coffee/tea in the morning which was thoughtful (again considering their rate). The hosts speaks english well-they even helped us out in booking for a...
