    It was a love hate stay. Love it because it is near insadong and other places. Hate it because the space is too small. Cant move around freely. Almost feeling claustrophobic! And yes, the hotel towel is small. More like a face towel 😠.

    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
