We had a very comfortable stay at Sunbee Hotel for 7 nights in early Dec. We booked 2 twin rooms (queen & single bed) at 60,000 won/rm/nite through Innostel, 10,000 won extra for 3rd person which was still ok!
Be prepared for at least 10-15 min walk from Anguk Bus Station (if you take bus 6011). It took us much longer to find it the 1st time even though we were fully aware of its obscure location warned by earlier reviewers. It is especially challenging the 1st time when you have just arrived - in the cold, confused and armed with bulky luggages. As maps are prohibited on this forum, here is a quick guide to get to SunBee – after alighting at Anguk Bus Station, walk pass Anguk Exit 6, walk for about 3 mins, at the tourist info office, turn left into Insadong. There are several souvenir shops, continue walking for about 10 minutes and on your right, look for a small lane “Insadong GIL 7” and there is also a small sign with Sunbee Hotel above it. Turn into Insadong Gil 7, walk for another 3 minutes and you should see SunBee Hotel partially hidden on the right!
The rooms are roomy and comfortable enough for 2-3 persons. The bathrooms are really spacious with toilets & vanity area separated, which is great! It seems that the toilet flush cannot accomodate toilet paper so beware of chokage!
Sunbee had a full range of amenities in the room that you would not expect at this price. The PC is definitely a plus advantage! There is a cold/hot water dispenser which is really convenient when you are in need of an instant hot drink in the cold weather. They also provide bottled mineral water so you can bring it out, which is really thoughtful! Their breakfast of croissant, bun and yogurt is satisfactory but may appear boring after few days. There are many TV channels including CNN news. A full range of toiletries including face cream, facial cotton pads, hair spray, hair band are being provided for! The odd item left out was the toothbrush, but they provide toothpaste though.
On the whole, Sunbee is in a great location in Insadong, which is full of charm and rich heritage and we could not ask for more! We will be back!! :-)
