The location of this hotel couldn't be much better. It is within 10 minutes walk of a few subway lines which link you to the whole city. The river is right outside too which is nice to walk along. There is a vibrant street full of night time food stalls right next door too. The city centre area is about...

We visited with friend and chose the hotel by location (very near the metro stop) and cheap price. Toiletries were supplied as well as free water and kettle (no coffee though). We didn't have window which saved us a few wons per night. The room was clean and air conditioning functioning. We had tv with English channels. Breakfast was basic...

I think they have recently renovated, perhaps, as it is not that bad, old & dirty as some of the comments/reviews. So after all we kind of enjoyed our stay there ... anyway, we don't expect much from a 3stars hotel. The room is clean and with basic essentials supplied, we find it rather comfy, even though it is 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.

“Possible choose only bed/room without breakfast. The breakfast served was basically bread, cereal with milk, tea or coffee plus an omelette. Dine-out is not expensive plus there are many good food available nearby, especially at Gwangjang Market, many local delights!”
