After arriving to Guesthouse the Maru at Namdaemun I was surprised how tight and small the place were compared to the pictures. It seems that the room looked wide in the picture, but in reality it was small (the bed took all the place). The good things they have here are nice, kind and english speaking receptionists, the AC, television... More

Second lots of attraction near it like the Myeongdong, Namdaemun, Gyeongbokgung and the renowned N Seoul Tower. Then the staff are friendly and will... More

Location is perfect. It is walking distance from Myeongdong (around 10 minutes)and Namdaemun (around 3 minutes). Just a few meters away is the main road where you can easily ride the bus, take the train, or get a cab. You get a good view of the Namdaemun gate from the main road as well. The guesthouse itself is very clean.... More

Really great stay, first we stayed in a private double room for $60 p/n - it's very cozy, private shower etc.... Then we stayed in the women's dorm which has a really good set up downstairs for $20 a night. Sally and the rest of the staff are really lovely. So there's no easy way up to the breakfast/computer room... More
