This Hotel was great, it was very comfortable and was in a great location, easy walk to restaurants and shopping in Insadong. We could just wander from here during the day or night to great eats and great shopping. The staff were very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here.

After spending weeks travelling, this hotel was a welcome site. The staff was friendly and the room was nice and clean. The king-sized bed and huge tub made it a great place to relax. Even the little things like allowing me to do a small load of laundry for free was a nice touch. The hotel is in a cool... More

Hotel Sunbee can be reached by Bus 6011 from Incheon Airport. Stop at Anguk Station and turn into the Insagdong-gil main road and look out for 7-gil. The hotel is decent, not luxurious. Continental Breakfast menu remains the same throughout our 5 nights stay.

Had a great stay at the Sunbee. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and spoke enough English. Our room was large and comfortable, and extremely quiet. The location -- just steps from the center of Insadong's main street -- was ideal: close to shopping, restaurants, people-watching, and subway stations.

Very friendly and helpful staff, that speaks English. My room came with breakfast, which was a reasonable breakfast, and if you are looking for a Western type of breakfast, this place has one, although simple. Rooms were large and clean, but showing their age. Beds were comfortable and on the firm side. Hotel is 2 short blocks to the Insadong... More

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
