We stayed here during the Chuseok weekend in September (Thursday-Monday) and what a lovely hotel this is. Please do note that it's tricky to find - so do make sure you are familiar with the instructions on how to find it. Once you've located the hotel you'll realise how excellent the location is. Just a few steps from Insa-dong and close to some of the best tourist attractions in Seoul.

The staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. We found check-in and check out to be a breeze and the staff helped us with all our requests. Breakfast is good (served downstairs it's a simple continental breakfast) and we loved the design and feel of this hotel. The rooms are a good size and well appointed - pc, large TV, fridge, hot and cold water, large bathroom and comfy bed. Apparently this hotel also serves as a "love motel", but we noticed only the happy tourists. Access to both the rail and bus network is excellent and airport bus 6011 stops by Anguk station (which is close by). With the proximity to Insa-Dong you'll find all sorts of restaurants and bars close by. For a tourist this is arguably the best location in Seoul. Couldn't have been happier with my stay.

We stayed with our little one for 5 nights during September. The place was incredibly clean and we had no issues with anything during our stay. It is very close to all the fun things to do in Insadong and minutes away from airport bus and subway so makes it easy to get around the city. The staff here are awesome and try to help out as much as they can (they have very little english tho) they even stored out luggage for 1 week as we went travelling around the country. Breakfast was also thrown in and we had no complaints (toast, cereal, yogurt etc) Stay here if you're planning a trip to Seoul, you won't do any better for $ (we paid 88 won per night)...

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and although it is quite basic the staff were very friendly and the room was spotless with a lovely big bathroom. The location of this hotel is fantastic for tourists with lots of the main attractions within walking distance. The airport bus 6011 takes you to Anguk stop which is only about a 5 minute walk away. Make sure you follow the directions provided previously as they were excellent.
If you are looking for a budget hotel in a great location I would definately recommend this hotel. The only criticism I have is that the bed was as hard as a brick, however, after a full days sightseeing I was so tired that I slept like a baby anyway.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel staff were very polite and helpful. The rooms were very clean and had every thing in them including water machine and a computer. The breakfast buffet was also plentiful. I would strongly recommended this hotel if you want to stay in this area of Seoul

Stayed here in September over a very busy holiday weekend. However this made no difference to our experience here. The staff were excellent and helped with all of our queries. The rooms were spotlessly clean and are large with plenty of space as was the bathroom. Room facilities are much better than other hotels in this price range - large TV, computer, fridge, safe, sofa, water fountain, 2x coffee, tea & water per day.

Hotel location is just off the main Insadong strip, yet you get none of the crowds/noise outside the hotel as it is on a quiet side street. 5 minute walk up Insadong street and you get to Anguk station for the subway.
