I made a last minute booking at Insadong Crown Hotel due to an early morning meeting I had the next morning. I did not have much time to research but found the location perfect for my purpose, and thus booked the hotel. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the main Insadong street and it is surrou ded... More

Location is good but the interior including the furniture is a bit old and antique. Rooms are small and a bit dark, probably due to the lighting. The lift is quite small and when there are people with bags & luggage would be difficult.

The location is ok but the staff and service were horrible. They didn't understand a word in english and didn't try to help. They overpriced the room because they didn't want backpackers in the hotel and they didn't even want to show us the room before booking. All in all a very bad place.

Pretty good location near Anguk station and bunch or restaurants and pubs. The hotel is very dated and needs a make over. It is definitely a budget hotel. The rooms are very small for the price though compared to other hotels in Seoul. The reception staff were fairly helpful.

A/C was on but not very cool. Bed was comfotable- firm but not a board. Hotel has one very tiny elevator so wait is long during rush... More

It is well situated to visit Insadong. There was old carpet on the floor of our double room quite small and in day time we felt cold. No breakfast included. The restaurant on the firt floor was not heated.It seems to be overpriced. The Doulos Hotel for less money is much much better. If you book at this hotel a... More

Awesome location--walking distance to a number of tourist sites, super close to Anguk station and plenty of places to eat and drink close by. The hotel is somewhat older. Definitely a budget hotel. The distinction between smoking and non-smoking room is muddy but our room was fine though we are non-smokers. Staff spoke Japanese and English. (Better Japanese than English... 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.
