We booked 2 deluxe twin rooms which had a king and a single size beds for 5 nights. The rooms are spacious and comfy. Rooms come with all amenities but bring ur own toothbrush! Great reception, with the staff able to communicate well in English! The brekkie is simple but more than enough to fill ur stomach for the day.... More

My fiance and I spent 4 nights in this hotel. It was initially tricky to find as it is about a 5-10 minutes walk from the subway station, but after the first time you can find your way rather easily. Check-in was smooth- the staff was very polite and he even upgraded our room! The room was also spacious, homey,... More

Recently booked 4 rooms at the Sunbee Hotel during a 7 day vacation in Seoul and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. Great location, very near busy Insadong but tucked away in a quiet inner road off the main street. Walking distance to most tourist sites and shopping areas. Rooms are very clean, beds are super...

Although the interior of the hotel could use an update, we really enjoyed our stay here. The room was quite spacious, as was the bathroom. All things you might need such as shampoo, conditioner etc were available. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Breakfast was very good, considering this is a Korean hotel. We had toast, boiled eggs, orange... More

This place is great value for money. The beds are comfy, bathroom is large and (although I usually don't use it) the soap provided smells great! It's easy to walk to some of the biggest highlights, the subway is 2 minutes away and food is always close. A big thumbs up for the staff! They spoke excellent English (even better... More

We selected this hotel following reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The location was great and easy to get to from the airport – using Airport bus 6011. Cost of KRW10, 000 per person each way. Tickets can be purchased on the bus. The hotel was a short walk from the bus stop at Anguk. The hotel staff were... More

We stayed at the Sunbee over the easter weekend on our first trip to Seoul based on recommendations on Trip Advisor. Or flight was delayed so we didn't arrive until after one in the morning e couldn't get our phones working to contact the hotel when we landed so we were worried that our room might have gone. Thankfully it... More

This place is perfectly situated in the insadong area. Markets, awesome dumpling shop at the start of its side street, walking distance to subway and a few blocks further to myeong dong (street food heaven).. very quiet and comfortable bed. Friendly staff and clean but dated. Stay here because of price and location I really do recommend it.. if you... More

Staying in Insadong

Neighborhood Profile
Insadong
Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts, fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in particular has become a local institution for its unique spiral layout and the many boutique shops inside that sell handmade crafts and goods. This is the perfect neighborhood to sample a range of Korean dishes, with vegetarian Korean temple cuisine restaurants being a popular draw, but street food carts are just as famous. As a top tourist destination, crowds can swell, particularly on weekends, but you can find some rest and respite in one of the private art galleries or grab a cup of Korean tea in a tea house – many of which are located in beautifully renovated traditional Korean homes.
