Small hotel with very friendly and helpful staff on a quiet street in Insa-dong. Very affordable and only a block to great shopping and wonderful food! Close enough to walk to the Avenue of Youth, several Palaces and a Temple or to catch the subway at Jonggak station and head over to the Seoul Folk Flea Market. Comfortable rooms and... More

The hotel is superbly located within walking distance to major tourist attractions like the royal palaces, Insadong shopping district and even Myeongdong , to mention a few. Hotel staff is very helpful, friendly and willing and ready to help. Rooms are of a reasonable size and relatively clean. The breakfast provided though simple is ample to provide a hearty start...

A great location and a very good hotel right next to Insadaong Road, Trip Advisor reviewers were right again. We took a taxi from Seoul Station and the taxi driver did have a little difficulty but we got there. Once there it is so easy to get around. Check out the three underground stations all about the same distance from... More

We had a very enjoyable two-night stay in Seoul at the end of our South Korea trip. The location of this hotel cannot be beat - it is right in Insadong and in the action. There are lots of restaurants nearby as well. The room was large with a large bath and quite comfortable with all the typical Korean amenities... More

I booked the Sunbee Hotel for two nights last month and my decision was heavily based on Tripadvisor reviews. My family and I had a wonderful stay. Our room was large and comfortable and the bathroom was enormous with a jacuzzi tub. The complimentary breakfast helped us start our day of sightseeing and the Sunbee Hotel's location couldn't be better.... More

We spent three nights at Sunbee Hotel. Apart from it being difficult to find initially (it is tucked away), its location is great for sightseeing. There are many restaurants in the area and Insadong Gil is a very busy little street with loads of shops. The hotel is clean, and supplies clean towels each day. The staff are extremely friendly...

The rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff were very friendly and eager to help. Very convenient location in Insadong with close walking distance to cultural attractions, subway stations and Myeong-dong. The breakfast was about what I've come to expect at a Korean hotel: a bit of Western breakfast items (toast, cereal, yogurt), a bit of non-Western breakfast food (canned... More

We stayed at this Hotel for five nights. It is extremly well located, near to subway stations, so you can visit Seoul using the subway and returning to a zone where you can find restaurants -even vegetarian!-, and many cultural activities/places = it is on Insadong district. There is one catch: when you arrive, it is hard to find the... More

The hotel is within walking distance to Insadong and Myongdong. It is also close to two subway stations. The staff members were friendly and helpful. We were able to store our luggage on check in and check out days. The hotel rooms were clean and spacious. Free wifi is available in the hotel rooms. The only problem we had experienced... More
