After our stay in Hong Kong, we proceeded further on our visiting the far east countries. Next stop was the capital of Republic of South Corea, Seoul. We have had a good flight over the territory of the Republic of China, except for only one getting in the turbulence. Our tourist agency booked for us, the hotel Biwon in Wonnam...

Booked Deluxe Twin room (1 Double, 1 Single) via Hotelwide.com. Room advertised with sauna and jacuzzi included. Requested a quiet, non-smoking room on higher floors. Got a noisy and smelly smoking room on the 7th floor with 2 single beds and without sauna nor jacuzzi. Worst of all, the bathroom has no shower stall but has only an old style...

Was booked into the hotel's deluxe room by the organizer of my business meeting due to its close proximity with the venue. The reception area is quite small and unfortunately have quite limited English skills. The tourist's map brochures provided by the hotel are also only available in Korean or Japanese. The hotel's room space is a bit small but...

Fortunately taxis are cheap in Seoul as this hotel is away from most of the attractions. It is a 10+ minute walk to the nearest metro station Jongno 5, and once on a train you usually need to change trains to go somewhere of importance. Our room was a standard twin (double and single bed) and it was small. No...

There is much to like at the Biwon. It is very conventiently located near the palaces, and Dongdaemun and Daehangno are close by. Rooms are average size, clean, and have a few nice extras like a stereo system and in room steam bath! There's also a convenient restaurant on the top floor. In this price range, this is quite a...

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.
