We stayed here for five nights in late June. All in all, we were highly satisfied. PROS: • The location is perfect. Lots of cultural sites of interest nearby, and markets and street food aplenty in the area. It’s also extremely easily reached by subway. Do NOT take a cab to come here from the airport – you’re wasting your...

Reviewed 29 April 2014

Good, and suprised so many Hong Kong people stayed there, almost 70% of all we met in the breakfast room, and not much Mainlanders. This point is very important because the normal soundproof of premises converted from domestic buildings are usually minimal, and the quality of people living around you may affect your sleep seriously. The service was definitely the...

Ok, so the room is small, the window is tiny. I'm sure the air conditioning is so so in the summer, the decor is a bit hostel like, but right now, in November it is pretty near perfect. It is clean, the bed is comfortable. There is breakfast included, and frankly it is a damn good deal when you compare...

A bit difficult to find but another reviewer gave a great explanation: "Jongro-3 station, exit 5. look right - see the Standard Charter sign at 1st-floor level? Walk to the right of that. The hotel will be on your right shortly, down the second alley/street." The room had a nice bed, huge tv, fast wireless. Aircon in the room was...

As long as you set your expectations right, this would be a good place to stay. This is much closer to a hostel than a hotel from the way it operates to the room sizes to the décor to the cleanliness. The plus: - Location was fantastic, close to the Seoul Metro, close to Insadong, close to lots of food...

After 50+ hotels I think this is the first place that is a little under-rated on TripAdvisor. It seems like a 4.0, but is currently 3.5. The rooms are just OK looking, but probably the most comfortable we had in 8 hotels across S. Korea & Japan though. They were the quietest and darkest (pitch black) rooms we used. Only...

Just like most have said, this was very difficult to find; even the taxi driver had no idea. We arrived at night, so it was dark and hard to see....but we eventually found it. First impression---"where the heck am I and what have I done". I am used to more upper-scale accommodations and this definitely is NOT it, but once...

Very hard to find! You have to take exit 5 out of Jongno 3(sam) ga and walk towards the Standard Chartered building. To the right of the building is a very small street (all the shops are on the left hand side: clocks, photography, a few restaurants with eels in tanks out the front) which you walk down and take...

This hotel is a bit "artsy" in its decor, which is fine. It was clean, and relatively inexpensive for being in the middle of Insadong, and near to so many attractions. It is off a but of a side street, and it took me a while to find it, but with help of a friendly local person, who enlisted the...

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.
