After seeing fairly high approval ratings of Saerim Hotel on this website and others, my boyfriend and I decided to book 7 nights at a time for 14 days total. The first 6 days were OK, the amenities are fine, although it isn't as clean or updated as reviewers describe. I was reasonably satisfied with their services and amenities until...

Staying in Insadong

Neighbourhood Profile
Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts, fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in particular has become a local institution for its unique spiral layout and the many boutique shops inside that sell handmade crafts and goods. This is the perfect neighborhood to sample a range of Korean dishes, with vegetarian Korean temple cuisine restaurants being a popular draw, but street food carts are just as famous. As a top tourist destination, crowds can swell, particularly on weekends, but you can find some rest and respite in one of the private art galleries or grab a cup of Korean tea in a tea house – many of which are located in beautifully renovated traditional Korean homes.

“Avoid 1st floor due to lobby noise, not that there is much but there are a few rooms right there.”

“No shower curtain. Shared toiletries if you forgot yours. Bring earplugs.”

“There is construction work taking place on the left hand side of the hotel (as you face the hotel from the street) but it wasn't a major problem. Ask for a room on the opposte side!”

“I'm not sure if all rooms are equipped with a computer, so it might be worth confirming beforehand as it really comes in handy. There is wifi there, but it's very weak/slow to the point that it's basically useless (at least in my room on the 2nd floor), but the hotel room computer's internet was fast. Also before you unpack all of your things, check that the other stuff is working. If it isn't, they'll let you change rooms.”
