There were hot and cold water. Wifi ok. Airport limousine bus and subway in walking distance. Many tourist attractions (Insadong, Palace, Bukchon Village) are...

We were staying two night in this hotel. The location is 10 minutes walking from subway. It's okey for location and in the centre of the city, so going to tourist spot is quick and easy. The quality of bed, bathroom is average low. If you dont mind for the flat bed, and no window room, small bathroom, and only...

The hostel is closely located near Anguk metro station (subway no. 3). You have to come out from Exit 4 of Anguk station, take left in the first crossing and walk for 3-4 minutes to get the hostel. The rooms are small in size, however, all the basic amenities (such as - air conditioner, private bathroom, television, hair drier, hanger,...

We went into this knowing it was a hostel.guesthouse budget experience, so my expectations were low. Accessibility: we took a cab from Seoul Station, and my husband speaks fluent Korean, but the driver still had problems with the address and had to ask some locals in the vicinity. Neighborhood: Great food EVERYWHERE. Don't even worry. Just move your legs in...

We were traveling to Seoul during the CNY holidays. For a hostel type of accommodation, this place really is worth for your money. It provides you with basics but superbly clean (ensuite bathroom) and accommodating for traveler whom anyway will spend the whole day exploring Seoul. Great location, near to the bus and train stations. If budget is your main...

Booked this extremely last minute and we're delighted. Small room but very comfortable bed-with amazingly bright covers! Room was ensuite and had hair dryer. Extremely impressed with how clean everything was. Minor point-the towels are tiny! Smaller than a UK tea-towel for those of you who know what that is! Breakfast is DIY in the kitchen and offerings are cereals,...

The price is reasonable (with simple breakfast provided) and the staffs are friendly. They are able to speak English, so you do not have to worry about the communication problem. There is no daily housekeeping, so you have to maintain the cleanliness of the room yourself. The hostel is very close to Anguk station (walking distance to Insadong) and there...

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.
