If guaranteed good night sleep is a big deal, skip this place. Otherwise for the money, it's probably one of the better places you get in Seoul, all things considered. Pros: 1. PRICE 2. Great for site seeing for places up North, and Gimpo Airport...More

If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul,
Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s

Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area

They provided a toothbrush because I took the one provided home and used it there. I forget whether they provided toothpaste because I brought my own, but I think there was a small tube.
