Every single staff here was very very nice and kind!! They were friendly and I felt comfortable asking any questions! The location is convenient; the subway station is really close. The building itself is not very new, but the inside was neat and clean! I loved the pretty paintings on the wall in our room. Also the amenities in the... More

We stayed here in the summer of 2014 for 3 nights. The location is great because it is close to the Jonhno 3-ga subway station and within walking distance to several landmarks if you prefer walking. Our group consisted of 4 women in our early 20s, and we felt safe in the area at all times. The hotel, as many... More

Like most here, I got this place for ~$50/night on Hotwire. Let me first start by giving you the best directions from Incheon.: Buy tickets on the 6002 bus. Will cost W10K ~= $10USD. The bus will let you off on Jogno 3 Sam ga. The bus has screens and voice notices, so you wont miss it. Walk back to... More

It's a little run-down around the edges and they could do with a fresh lick of paint in some of the rooms and the bed linen and towels were on the old side... so why give the "Biz" a Very Good review?

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.
