This hotel is located in Jongro 3 Ga area near Insadong. You can walk to Insadong in 3~4 minutes. Very affordable.... Spotlessly clean all throughout. Breakfast buffet is 9,900 KRW and the quality is way better than the price. Good combination of typical continental breakfast and Korean dishes. You definitely want to go up to the rooftop garden where you... More

We stayed here for a week in May and had a pleasant experience. The breakfast buffet was sufficient. Nice to have a laundry downstairs. Several cultural attractions within easy walking distance. Very affordable compared to others we priced.

I just returned from Seoul from 10 July to 16 July 2016 and had a great time there while staying in Ibis. The receptionists are attentive and the house security has always been so helpful. Even though the hotel is rather quite a walking distance to the station, there are many restaurants, cafe and convenient store around the hotel. In... More

We have stayed at this hotel in July. A good budget hotel in a great position central to all amenities. It certainly within walking distance of everything that you need.

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.
