Some pros: - Reasonable price considering that it’s located in the famous Insadong neighbourhood and near the Anguk station. It's also walking distance from the Gyeongbokgung & Changdeokgung palaces and Bukchon village. - Lots of amenities, such as toothbrush, hair products, etc. - Sufficient hot water - The room is quite clean and comfortable Some cons: - The hotel did...

I stayed at this hotel for one night during NYE because it was within walking distance of the party I wanted to be at and the price was right. Some pros: LOCATION! It's tucked in a little alley in Insadong, very close to Anguk station. I found it quite easy to find, but I've been living in Korea for awhile... More

Although for foreigners not easy to find this motel (for me its hotel standard), nevertheless once you got hold of the area (Insadong) a good vicinity. The hotel has hot water, cable TV, air conditioning (during winter you can even have hot air), free tea bags and coffee. Hot water near stair case and free wifi too (that's the beauty... More

Yes, this does happen to be a love hotel, one of the pervasive hotels in Korea that couples can rent by the hour. But that isn’t the reason I’m giving Hotel Sarangbang a low review. It actually turned out to be pretty reasonable and had a surprising amount of amenities, an English-speaking staff, and even an in-room computer (which was... More

If you love the liveliness of Insadong, then this hotel is right in the mix of things. It's a hotel with good service and amenities. It's in a refurbished building so there is no elevator or lobby. It is cozy and comfortable. The Wi-Fi, hot water, all work well. Everything stated they have. I would come back. It is so... More

Mixed feelings about this stay and ultimately I can’t look back and say I enjoyed it. My plane landed at 7am and I arrived at the hotel at 11am to be met with a short sharp greeting “Check in at 2pm”. He made no attempt to see if the room was ready or not. There was no reasoning or discussion... More
