This hotel is in the city centre in the area between jongno-3 and euiljiro-5(?). Easy walk to Myeongdong, Dongdaemun via the Cheonggyecheon Stream and Insadong. It is between two subway lines, both within 5 minutes walk. The airport limousine stop is a bit further away. Perhaps 10minutes walk.
The hotel is between renovation stores so looks like it is in a strange part of the city, but if you are at all familiar with the city you'd know it's actually very central. When I visit Seoul I always stay in the jongno-3 area because it's within walking distance of the palaces, shopping areas, busan tower, the stream etc. this is a very economical option as the love motels which you can usually find for about 40000won is a bit more expensive in this area.
The hotel is upstairs and there is no lift so if you have a problem with stairs DO NOT stay here but otherwise don't let this put you off. The staff are extremely helpful and carried my suitcase up and down the stairs when I arrived and departed.
The rooms have wifi which is good.
The only thing I found strange was that thy do not clean the rooms for the duration of your stay. Perhaps if you request it they will. That also means you have the one towel. But you can deposit it in the laundry baskets on each floor and ask for another at reception.
There was a funny smell in the room and it might be because it does not have good ventilation. A bit musty.
Overall a solid budget hotel good for people who want to travel cheaply without having to stay in hostels. Great location but probably best for solo travelers.
