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.

Don't know, but the bed I was in was very big. Plus I'm not sure the sofa in the place was not also a sofa bed. I was in an apartment room. You should be in direct contact.
