The location is a bit hard to find but very central. It is near exit 15 of jongno3 station or near the airport bus (6002)stop. For English speakers the 3 is pronounced as sam ( the Chinese pronunciation of the number 3) to avoid getting off at the wrong stop. Both of these modes of transport will drop you off to the right side of the road.
From there look for the pharmacy with a green cross on the top of the building and walk into the small alleyway, take the third right and as you come into an opening in the road look left for the hotel, it's about the third building on the left hand side.
The breakfast was decent with hot and cold buffets, and a mix of Korean and western foods. Level 2 also has facilities for water( hot/ cold) for free all day long if u need to refill bottles or want coffee/tea ( no kettle in room). There is bottled water daily, chocolates on arrival and cakes on departure which are all complimentary. There are also free postcards in the lobby, I found it hard to find one in Seoul (they sell them in packs only in the stores) . Wifi was fine ( try connecting to another levels if your one gives you a crap connection)
Location wise you can walk to the stream, Insadong, the Jongmyo shrine, Myeongdong and the palace Changdeokdoong. The palace and myeongdong are about 15 to 20 minute walk so take the subway if you are not interested in longer walks, the others are within 5 to 10 minutes.
The room was small, enough for two people but if you're just sleeping its fine. It was very clean. It's a great budget place! The reception desk are very polite, willing to help and speak English well enough.
