Hotel Tong Seoul Dongdaemun
Ranked #341 of 506 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed 22 July 2014

reservation team changed us to another branch in Dongmao Station while discussed on e-mail and that fine. close to station, just 2 minute walk but there website's map is horrible. The exit gate is No.5 but its told the different. Room is small but cozy. All clean and neat.
It's the first place that i feel uncomfortable with the staffs, they are unhelpfully and unfriendly. No need extra service, just welcome smile and necessary information which i never had all this trip.

We were staying in the Insadong branch of this hotel. The location is perfect for its closeness to the city center and the sizzling streets, restaurants, shops and markets of Insadong. The airport bus 6002 stops 30m from the hotel, which is almost imperceptibly concealed in a narrow backstreet.
Our room on the ground floor had a small window that looked onto the wall of the adjacent building without ever allowing the sun to peep in. The room itself offered space for a 2by2 m bed and an aisle where to leave the luggage (no wardrobe/cupboard). Fortunately the busy city tires you off so much that you fall asleep right away without worrying about TV or a drink from the mini-bar.
The room and the floor (under the bed) are spotlessly clean and so is the combined shower-toilet room that teaches you to wash/shower only after you and your partner have finished their toilet sessions.
In terms of value-for-money you get more than enough, especially when it comes to the friendly and helpful staff, the cleanliness of the room the cosiness of the small kitchen opposite the lobby where you will always find a staff or a traveler ready to exchange information and good advice.
Only when you are heading towards your 70th birthday you may not want to roll over each other twice a night and you may expect a little more luxury than a noisy fridge in your room.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the upper floors

I booked two rooms for three people in each room, at the Studio Tong located at Dongmyo, but then when I arrived I was told that no rooms are available there and I must move to another franchise two subway stations away at Jongno 5 Ga which is this Hotel Tong. We were given three rooms that fit two people. But I already paid for the Studio Tong room! I'm not sure who cheated, either the hotel management or agoda.

Another thing that disturbs me is that, for a room this small at this Hotel Tong, I can get a similarly sized hotel with breakfast included at Myeongdong at 1/3 of the price of this Hotel Tong. Not going to book with this company anymore.

The hotel is conveniently located near the subway station Jongno 5 ga (it takes 3 minutes from the hotel), near the airport bus stops (only 5 minutes). The hotel is very nice, designed in eco-style. They even have a small and lovely garden and a kitchen. The rooms are tiny but equipped with all the necessary amenities like a hair-dryer, TV, fridge, shower gel, shampoo (please mind there is no tooth brush and paste). The staff is very friendly and helpful, they all speak good English.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the rooms on a first floor - the karaoke club is near so you will suffer from the...
