it was a convenient location, with anything you might need in a short or even a long term staying. the style is essential not opulent but you have everything you may need.
the spa with swimming pool is not big but enough for a city retreat

Room Tip: you can take the one bedroom suite with the separate living room

I recently had a fantastic stay at Fraser Suites in Seoul. Fantastic location in Insadong. Close to several Metro stations and a multitude of restaurants and bars. While the rooms are starting to look a little dated they still provide everything that you could ask for. They are large apartments with full kithchen, washing machine, wi-fi, and I could not fault the service of the staff during the stay.

We stayed in a two bed apartment and it was really nice and a generous size. Lovely bathrooms with plush showers and a stand alone bath. The location is great with a large area of local craft shops circling the hotel. Easy to walk to many attractions and its a cheap taxi ride to Seoul station. Only annoying thing was that we were in an apartment with four adults and only one device at a time can connect to the wifi, but it wasnt a big deal. Would definately recommend.

We were very pleased with Fraser Suites Insadong. The price we paid was absolutely great. The room / apartment was big and clean with a nice view of the city (ask for a high floor room). The staff at the reception was very friendly and helpful. The fitness was very clean, big and had very good equipment. The swimming pool was as well very clean and exactly what I had expected.

However, the best of all was the location. The hotel is situated in a bustling artistic district of Seoul with lots of great little restaurants, various boutiques, galleries, tea and coffee houses.

We definitely recommend Fraser Suites Insadong.

I'm giving this hotel a 4 based on the room itself which was amazing! I would certainly recommend families look at this hotel as the suites are spacious and rooms that close off to give each other space. The location near Insadong is also fantastic. If this hotel had free wifi in the rooms it would amazing, but alas you can only get free wifi in the lobby for everyone. In the room only one device can be connected to the Internet at a time which is inconvenient for a family. The hotel was recently renovated and is comfortable, so if wifi isn't important to you then check out this hotel!

We(3 adults) stayed here for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom premier style apartment.
The apartment was kitted out with all the usual amenities, inclusive of kitchen, fridge, microwave oven and washing machine/dryer.

Whilst the washing machine was very welcomed the dryer portion of it was close to useless. It took more than 2.5 hours to dry anything anything. We gave up after awhile and just used the washing machine pportion of it and hung up our wet clothes to dry. There was plenty of room so that was not an issue.
The other thing of note was the fact that the bathroom sometimes leaked which meant that we had to use towles to mop up the leakage. We were a little surprised since this is a new hotel so weren't expecting this to happen.

Housekeeping was thorough as far as cleaning was concerned - everything was replenished as expected each day, although there are no services on Sundays.

Internet is free and breakfast is included each day although the selection is a little limited and just Western in style not Korean and you are expected to clear the table yourself.

In summary a good hotel in an excellent location - Insadong, close to heaps of restaurants and shop, although not luxurious by any means.

I am a big fan of Fraser Suites as you always get a huge space in a perfect location. This huge serviced apartment hotel combines both of these. There is a daily cleaning service plus a coffee shop downstairs which is great! There is a gym, steam room, sauna and huge indoor pool on the second level.

I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Seoul.
