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

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

Stayed here for a couple of nights for 3 people due to tour reservation back in December 2014. Experienced a bit difficulty in finding the place but after that it is actually a hidden gem. It's located really close to insadong, one of the main tourist attraction site. Easy access to shop and eat. The staffs were really friendly and... More

Located in an artsy neighborhood that was fun to to explore. Our room was large, clean, and quiet; a great spot to return to at the end of the day. Excellent complimentary breakfast selection. I'd stay here again again

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

Neighborhood Profile
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.
