Hotel itself is good. Rooms are small but quiet, water pressure is adequate. They need to upgrade their BF buffet choices have stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and BF buffet did not change. Superb Internet connection. I'll rate it at 3 🌠🌠🌠

My first stay for 8 nights. The hotel is situated behind a major road but still very quiet. My room 704 at the end of a wing was a very tiny (even for one person) clean room with a bath. The bath is fit mainly for orientals. I agree with other reviewers to upgrade to a deluxe room (rooms on... More

Fantastic location - close to center, Insa-Dong ("artistic district"), Myeong-Dong (shopping district) and Cheonggyecheon. Hotel is located in small, quiet road. Great breakfast, very small rooms. Seul is absolutely amazing!

(1) Great front desk staff with warm welcome everytime when we back to the hotel (2) The breakfast is good but will be perfect if they can change the menu after 2 to 3 days (3) Only 3-4mins walking distance from the Metro station (4) Many local resturants near by and a 24hrs store just facing the hotel

We had a layover in Seoul on our way to Japan and spent the night here. The staff is friendly and speak very good English. You do have to journey down an alley to get to the hotel, but it is close to a subway stop. Our room was very small and had little room outside of the double that... More

The hotel is near the subway station, Jongo 3-ga Station, which makes it accessible to and from the airport. The hotel is affordable and it includes buffet breakfast. Room was clean and staff were really nice. Ask an adapter at the front desk because you can't plug anything on the outlet if you're not from Korea. Deposit is 10,000 won... More

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighborhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighborhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighborhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the center of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
