If you're looking for a 5 star hotel do not stay here. If you're looking for a place to sleep while you're out sight seeing, shopping, or doing business all day, then this is the place to go in Central Seoul. It is easy to get around from this location. If you're doing Seoul on the cheap, this is your... More

Stayed again in Vabien II because we've got the corporate price to stay in 2-bedroom suite. if not coprorate price, we won't stay in this hotel. 'coz it's overpriced. location is very good, airport bus station just in front of the hotel main door. metro station is just 1 min. from hotel. faciliies and equipment are a bit too old... More

We just returned from a week stay at the Vabien II. Since we are traveling with teens, we were looking for space and were very happy with the layout of our two bedroom on the 8th floor. The room was in nice condition and the wifi worked well. Kids were happy. The subway is so great to use that you... More

Always stayed at Vabien I so I as disappointed when they have changed their policy to only accommodate long term stays of minimum 1month. I was pleasantly pleased that Vabien II was available - have not stayed here before. Stayed in a superior room for 2. I liked that there was an in-room washing machine and the toilets were comfortable.... More

The facility really need upgrading or even repairs. Wooden floor is old looking, table tops full of stains, kitchen cabinet is dirty and again stained. Refrigerator making funny noises, suspect due to aging motor protesting. I really don't want to think how often they clean the sofa. Not recommended until they got their act together.

I stayed here a lot in the past, starting from 2007, back then it was okay. Comparing to the other residences in Seoul, its price was reasonable, facility was relatively clean. I must say, my time of staying there has now come and gone. First of all, it's a very odd business model: some rooms are individually owned and run... More

The room is big and the view is nice. It is located at the center of the city, with walking distance or taxis, most shopping centers and tourist attraction can be reached. Breakfast isn't so good though. Most important problem is that, there is only one room key for one room, and the key is needed in order to use... More

I had a week in this hotel for a conference. The price was good but that is about the best thing I can say. The hotel was rundown, housekeeping was not to a good standard and the breakfast left a lot to be desired. The room was large so there was plenty of space to spread out and work, and... More

I was obliged to stay in this hotel for 4 months (work related constraints) and what I can say it’s that Vabien Hotel is by far the worst hotel I have ever seen: 1. Hygiene: very dirty rooms and corridors (I attached some photos). Room service is ineffective and dust and dirt inside rooms seem to be a standard in... More

Staying in Seodaemun

Neighborhood Profile
Seodaemun
Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and historic buildings that are scattered throughout. Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or touring more historically somber sites such as Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong in particular is a beautiful place for a stroll in spring and autumn.
