This is a decent hotel with a good location. It's rather hard to find and we wandered around for a while before we found it. The location is good though and you can easily access some sights by foot from here. Metro is walking distance too as well as the bus to the airport. The rooms are clean and spacious,... More

This is the best hotel that is close to everything in the Insadong area. The rooms are very large ,as are the bathrooms, the included breakfast is very good & always fresh. I would highly recommend this hotel for service, rates & comfort.

Many mid range hotels in Seoul has small rooms but Sunbee's room are comfortably big. Hotel has all amenities for a traveller. Buffet breakfast has normal cereal, toast, fruit for non-Koreans on top of some Korean food. Location is good as it is within walking distance from two subway lines - orange line (Anguk station) and the Dark Blue Line... More

The hotel is within walking distance to most top tourist attractions and 3 subway stations, close to the main viby Insadong street, but very quiet. The staff speak good English and went out of their way to help me when my credit card malfunctioned. The rooms are spacious and very well equipped; the windows open. The breakfast was fine and...

At first is a little bit hard to find, mostly if you arrive at almost midnight and most of the shops are closed to ask for indications. It was clean, nice, the bedroom was fantastic. The staff is friendly and helpful, with everything, they helped us to book a tour with DMZ. The location is convenient, once you have an... More

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

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.
