Stayed here one night with a friend in a deluxe twin. Staff at the hotel reception were very friendly, spoke English. Room was very clean and spacious. Beds were very comfortable. We paid additional 7,000 each for the breakfast which was great value - included coffee, juice, and a choice of french toast with sausage, and bacon. Would visit again, as the location is great for the palace area and hopefully i'll be back to do some hiking!

We really enjoyed this hotel! The location was great and even better was the warm hospitality we had from the employees. They were extremely accommodating, helping us with getting taxis and allowing us a late check out. Also really appreciated being about to rent a mobile wifi at a very reasonable charge. Would definitely stay there again!

One if my last hotel stay from my Asia trip and This place was the highlight of my vacation. This hotel was recommended and booked by my travel agent, so I couldn’t have found this hotel on my own.
The staff were very communicative and spoke fluent English. They greeted me with all the amenities and popular foodie spots and museums to see in the city. They gave me a paper map.
I took advantage of the free laundry and clothes dryer with free soap and it was the perfect time that I needed this service.
The location is perfect for tourists because its situated in tourist area from walking distance. Also for online business because the wifi is very good and the room on the 5 floor is quiet.
I appreciated the temperature controlled floor during the cold nights (they also have AC) and the youtube television. They do offer daily room cleaning and free coffee downstairs. They water bottles and inroom water kettle was a nice touch.
The room had a safe locker for my passport.
The staff were so friendly they also allowed me to hold on to my luggage after checkout, returning in the evening for my taxi to the airport.
If I were to give some “dislikes”, there were none during my five day stay here. I would recommend this hotel to anyone reading this review.

Free adopters, Free water.
Not spotless clean , as the inner door is dusty.
We've booked 2 non smocking rooms , one of the rooms was bad with smokey smell.
Shower room is big, the room is big compared to most seoul hotel.
Cold service, maybe that's so called Korean style.
location is not close to subway, but there are restaurants and supermarket near by.

This little hotel was very clean and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They spoke English! There is an elevator and there were lots of tourist brochures in the lobby. I reserved the "Korean style" room. The Korean touches were window screens and a table on the floor. The window opened for fresh air. I was there in March, so I don't need aircon, but the temperature of the room was comfortable. The bathroom was a lot nicer than I expected - very roomy. My room had plenty of room and a comfortable bed. It was a great value for the money. I would stay here again.
The only negative was that it was a little bit hard for taxis to find, so ask the front desk for a business card with instructions on it to show to taxi drivers. The location is otherwise very good - centrally located and felt safe.

This is my third hotel, during my one week vacation in Korea. The location is a short walk from Anguk Station (maybe 10-15minutes?). It's definitely not as happening as Myeondong, but it has a quieter and more artistic vibe.

Oooh....everything in the room is the best! The beds are ultra comfortable, and the toilet facilities top notch too. This was definitely beyond my expectations considering the price range.

The guys at the concierge spoke good English, and were very helpful with the booking of taxis and giving us recommendations in the area.

Highly recommended.

Such a find in Seoul. Clean, helpful English speaking staff, good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds and quiet. Location was brilliant. Supermarket and convenience store within 2 mins walk. The airport bus (6011) stops at Anguk Station - 8 mins walk. Another station, Jonggak, is only 5 mins away. Easy walking to the Palaces. And ten minutes walk away are a selection of eateries at IkseonDong Hanok. I was a solo traveller and stayed six nights at Sunbee. No regrets whatsoever.

Hotel was in great location near 2 main palaces and the market. Lots of shops and restaurants around. Room very clean and had all conveniences. Small cafe, but only served coffee, no food or tea.
The front desk was great, and very helpful. Steven spent time with me to help me register my COVID test on Q code, and Mr. Moon found a pharmacy open at night when I needed medicine and walked me half way there to show me the way. I really appreciated the help and kindness of the staff, and would definitely recommend the hotel. It was also very quiet.

The location of the hotel was spot on. We were able to walk everywhere. They did not serve breakfast due to COVID but were able to find a place within a few minutes. The staff was quite helpful. The cafe makes a great latte. The room was comfortable and met our needs.

Only thing is that Sunbee us on a side street of Insadong which us a pedestrianised street. Not sure how close a taxi will get. Why not ask the hotel directly? They are lovely people, so helpful.

We are coming from Gimpo Airport. How to get to the hotel ?
Answer from Jess S

Hi we took the train to the the closest train station to the airport and then took a taxi. It was super easy and MUCH cheaper. If your flight comes in during the time the train runs I would suggest that and it was also much faster than a taxi. We had to take a taxi back to the airport due to flight times and it was longer and expensive. Good luck.

There’s shuttle every 15 minutes to take you to the airport, it’s a a short distance from the jonggak subway station and you pay the driver 10000 won cash per person, I think I saw someone use a credit card but double check with the hotel staff. I don’t think you can pay in advance.

The easiest way but not the cheapest is by cab! We took a day tour which included the Palace. They can fix you up at the hotel
