An horrible journey, staff is correct but room was horrible : cracks in bath, evacuation of sink waste water directly on ground because pipe broken, toilet bowl broken, mold, A.C. broken, cracks on walls.
A very bad experience !!!
The location is just perfect. You can reach subway in no time. You can reach it by walking from Jongno 3(sam)-ga station exit 4 (exit 7 is closer but there are no elevator in exit 7 so if you have a big baggage it is...More
I don't think there could be a better location! Navigating Seoul from here was easy. Many great bbqs, pubs and restaurants near by. The staff was helpful and friendly. As for the noise mentioned in some reviews, we didn't notice. You get a great hotel...More
The hotel is located near Jongno 3(sam)-ga station at exit 6. Rooms are not sound proof, quite small but beds are comfortable. Wifi is great here too. At night, you can find several food tents (pojang macha) and cheap eateries located near exit 6, which...More
The hotel is located near the famous Seoul attractions like castles, palaces, so you will have an opportunity to discover the city, its architecture and culture. Eateries with national cuisine are spread widely nearby. Underground is just 5 mins away, and a shopping district MyeongDong...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.
