After reading the reviews of this hotel, I did not hesitate to book it for 5 nights and I was not disappointed. My family and I arrived late at night on the eve of Chinese New Year and were warmly greeted at the front desk. Did not have any problems finding the place since we did some research on how... More

Stayed for 4 nights during Chinese new year holidays which were also new year in Korea. We arrived very late and it's a little bit difficult to find it out. Actually it's just behind Centermark Hotel which could be easily located. Hotel staff was very nice and helpful. We checked in very quickly and the staff reminded us that most... More

Hidden in the mazes of insa-dong, the hotel is not easy to find, especially when taxi driver do not speak much english. Very simple hotel, do not expect luxury and shiny things, it is typical of family owned and run city small hotels. The rooms are simple but comfortable and the bathroom I had was huge. One little problem if... More

A little tricky to find, behind the Centermark Hotel but the location is great for both Touring the royal palaces and the Insadong shopping. The room was comfortable with a nice bed, huge bath and nice gadgets. Free WiFi, big TV with a long list of channels, safe water boiler etc. We would stay there again without question. Breakfast was... More

My stay at the Hotel Sunbee was one of those rare occasions as a traveller when everything is great and you end up having the perfect stay. This hotel is a bit hard to find and we got a little lost as we arrived at night time but once you know where it is, it's super easy to navigate your... More

Stayed for 2 nights and immediately wished we'd stayed longer... a very warm welcome greeted us when we checked in, all the staff members spoke very good English and showed us all the good places to go. The hotel is located in the Insa-dong area which has plenty of restaurants, small shops and street vendors and all the other main... More

Nice hotel. Very friendly staff. Comfortable rooms. Good wifi. Calm. Very good location for exploring Seoul. Close to the tube and also close to restaurants and shops. Downsides: Not a very good breakfast - unless you like hot dogs in the morning. (They do have some other items on the breakfast buffet, but it's far from western style.)

We stayed for 4 nights from 24th Dec to 28th December 2014. I booked this hotel after reading reviews from several sites and was not disappointed. Paying less than USD100 per night, we got a solid room and had a pleasant stay. How to find this hotel. From the Anguk Subway Station Exit 6, take a walk straight about 50m.... More

The hotel is hidden in the back alleys but once you find it, you will be amazed. A beautiful average size hotel, with great and helpful staff. From outside the airport, take bus 6002 ( 10,000 won / $10 / £6), which takes about 1 hour and goes to Jonggak station. The hotel is about 5/10 minutes walk from the... More

This hotel is not really easy to find, in one of the cross roads of Insadong. The staff is very helpful and speaks English well, which is not so common in Seoul. The room is typical Korean, with separate slippers for room and bathroom. Firm oriental bed, good breakfast with both oriental and western choice. Close to the subway station... More
