Very near to subway station (Hoehyeon Station), and you can even reach MyeongDong by foot in 10mins or less. But if you're thinking of staying there with big luggages and wanting to take the Subway and Arex to Incheon International Airport, forget it, cause there's really really a lot of staircase and dont think of taking a lift cause there...

Stayed her during our 5 days visit at Seoul. Very near Heohyeon Station and Namdaemun Market. Provides decent breakfast. Since we arrived part 9pm, I emailed the guesthouse in advance and advised us of the check in procedure as the reception is not 24 hrs. I gladly agreed and we checked-in smoothly.

It is also very near tourist spots such as Myeondong shopping distric, Namdaemun market, and the very famous Namsan tower. Some may find the room space a bit small but no fret as the room is packed with all the... More

Located at Hoehyeon;one stop from Seoul Station. Within walking distance to Namdemum market and Myeongdong. The staff are friendly and some can speak Mandarin. You will have a chance to cook your own breakfast :p as in frying your egg and making your own ramen.

I rate my stay here at 4/5 stars. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The pros are definitely....1) Location. You can walk to Namdaemun market easily, you can hike to N Seoul Tower by foot, you are a block away from the subway to catch a ride to farther areas. Cannot beat this location. 2)Friendly staff. It's true, as I've seen... More
