Overnight stay in this wonderful hotel, great service from staff, food in the dining-room was plentiful and excellent quality. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Seoul. Good location to the airport, with safe environment outside to explore.

It was a last minute trip and my first overseas adventure with my kids! I am very thankful that I managed to secure a 2-br apartment at Orakai Invading Suites (formerly known as Fraser Suites Insadong) on my 3rd day in Seoul after my horrible experience with one of the Airbnb apartments near Seoul Station. It was still under Fraser's...

This serviced apartment was called Fraser suite Insadong. It's near to main tourist spots like Gwanghwamun square, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Myeongdong and the famous Insadong art alley is only few meters away. We stayed in their 1 bedroom apartment with our 1 yo baby. Spacious room with great amenities and full equipped kitchen, baby cot was provided. Highly recommended for those...

First thing...this is no longer Fraser Suites but Orakai Suites. The hotel has been re-signed as such. (Not fun for taxi service) The hotel is in a great location, close to shops etc, and has been recently re-modeled. We stayed in a three bedroom suite which contained a master suite with a king size and ensuite. The bed was quite...

I have been in this hotel some years ago and now it is complete renovated. All apartments have very nice and modern design, and also, very well equipated. Complete kitchen, oven, micro oven,...

The apartment was fantastic for a family vacation. Location of the hotel is pretty good too. The only issue was that we stayed during Lunar New Year and the room cleaning service was on vacation and we hadn't been notified in advance.

We stayed with our family of four in a 3 bedroom suite for 3 nights. The location was perfect, close to all the sites we wanted to see and some great restaurants. The staff was kind and helpful. The suite was comfortable, very clean and had everything we needed. The 3rd bedroom didn't have any windows and therefore no sufficient...

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.
