Fantastic price with wifi and Satelite TV. Heated floors were great at night. Staff did nor speak English but we had nothing to ask anyway. Booked a room with double bed and 1 single bed. The single bed was for putting our cases on and the extra space. Had air-conditioner, which we used as the underfloor heating was too warm....

For the price and location this is pretty good. From the airport take the Airport Limousine Bus and get off at Changdeokgung Palace and at the Light/ Intersection on your right, you'll see the City Park Hotel Sign. This place is close to 2 subway stations, Anguk and Jongno-gu stations and walking distance to 2 palaces, Bukchon Village (tradional houses),...

Don't be put off by the "Motel" label. It's not seedy or shady as the term might imply to some. It's actually a clean, and convenient place to stay in Seoul. It is just a 5-min walk from Anguk station, and 2-minutes from the entrance to the Changdeokgung palace. To get there from Incheon Airport, you could either take the...

The staff here are so sweet! They don't speak English but that is our problem, not theirs and they would help as much as possible. We booked an extra two nights and they were lovely about it. They also let us stash our bags after check out (I asked in Korean writing using Google translate) and were very nice about...

This motel/hotel is brilliant! And what a location - literally 300m from the most famous UNESCO site : the Changdeokgung Palace in Seoul ! We arrived downtown on the Airport Bus – you need to get off at Angok Station stop, keep walking straight ahead along the main road until you reach Changdeokgung, keep to the right hand side of...

It is an ok motel, the price compared to others is good. But it is very noisy, not from outside noises because there are non! But the cleaning people are making day and night so much noise! We always bring our "white noise" with us, but even with this it was too much. Our bathroom was not clean. The urine...

We stayed there for 6 nights in September. The motel is hard to find as there is no signage along the main road and it is blocked by another building. However, we managed to locate it after walking around for a while. The location is good, the palaces, Airport bus stops etc. are within walking distance. It is near to...

I spent 2 weeks in Seoul and stayed at five places all over including the City Park (4 nights). I can guarantee that for the price, the space and the location you will not get better value in Seoul. This is particularly the case for Friday/Saturday when prices usually hike up to 50%. At about $55 (AU equiv.) per night...

The motel is a bit difficult to find as it is sort of on a secondary street off of a main street. We had to wander a bit to find it once dropped off in the area. Staff speak very limited English, but use a telephonic language/interpreter service in addition to cellphone translations. Rooms are very well equipped and ours...

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighbourhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighbourhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.

“We stayed at room 403, there was no outside noise. But a lot of noise from the upper floor where they were cleaning all the nights. If you stay at the 5th floor, maybe the noise will be less. If you choose for a double bed, the bed is against the wall, so 1 can not get out easily. We chose therefore for 1 double and 1 single bed. This room was much bigger for 3$ more.”
