The area itself is filled with love motels and therefore the area might seem a little seedy but in the morning, everything is as clean and well.
Close to the subway and lots of decent eateries around.
Staff was a little impersonal but efficient. No...More
The location is excellent but as others have noted in a seedy side alley which can get noisy. I stayed for four nights and although my 'deluxe' room was really quiet, the bed comfortable and the sheets changed every other day, the room was not...More
The hotel comes across as rather seedy.
It's in a good location but it's surrounded by a few love motels which for unassimilated and unbeknownst foreigners, may come as quite a shock.
It's seriously hard to find and I was familiar with the area.
My wife and I spent two nights in the hotel in Sept 2012. I can only assume the negative reviews were from awhile back. We booked sight unseen for the price and the difficulty of finding a conveniently located place. The price was half the...More
Nice room, the AC worked well, and the location was why I chose it in the first place. We were able to walk to plenty of places: temples, places, parks, the Insadong road of shops and restaurants as so many others have noted. Free ice...More

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.
