Gyeongbokgung was originally built during Korea's Joseon dynasty, first meant to house King Taejo. The original was destroyed by the Japanese, but the palace and the grounds have been restored beautifully. Today, the palace sits just to the west of the lovely Seochon neighborhood, north of Insadong, and near the historical Bukchon neighborhood. It's proximity to these places, as well ...

    Though I wasn't able to get into a room because they were all full, Beewon seems like a really nice guesthouse. The people that work there are super-friendly and funny, and the place has a kitchen, laundry, and common area for guests to enjoy. It's also in a truly wonderful location, just a few minutes walk from Insadong, which is ...

    In terms of extended-stay housing in Seoul, The Fraser Suites are a cut above the rest. It’s located in the heart of Insadong, one the most popular areas in the city for art and tourism. All of the upscale units are actually fully furnished apartments, so it’s way more than a mere hotel. The style is a harmonious melding of ...

    The Koreana Hotel is a sort of unforgettable institution in the city, if only because it looms so large over city hall and the street to Gwangwhamun, also home to the large statue of King Sejong. This place is popular because of it's location and the fact that it's easily accessible from other parts of the city. The Koreana is ...

    Golden Pond's main building (where the common space is) is inside this adorable renovated hanok, or Korean traditional home. Inside, there is a warm and cozy living room area, a kitchen, and a laundry space. When I visited, everyone was having lunch together, which honestly looked like a pretty nice little afternoon. The rooms themselves are no more expensive than ...

    Zaza is a gem of a guesthouse, tucked away in the quaint alleyways across from Myeongdong. Owned by Min, who is a very relaxed and helpful young Korean, the place exudes coziness and comfort from the moment you walk in the door. Though all the rooms were full and I couldn't check out the actual accomodation, Min showed me the ...

    One of the best things about staying at the Hongdae guesthouse is that you can literally step outside the door and be in the very heart of the nightlife in Hongdae. This proves to be quite a nice bonus at the end of the night, too - no expensive cab rides to other parts of the city and no arguments ...

    Bong House is run by a nice Korean guy who seems to really enjoy talking to travelers, and the young Koreans he hires to work the desk are really chill, too. The place reminds me of an old-style Korean home, with dark wood paneling covering the common living spaces and ornate leather sofas in the middle of it all. Mr. ...

    Lotte is one of the largest food, entertainment and shopping conglomerates in Korea, and their immense flair for opulence certainly isn't lost on their massive hotel in the Myeong-dong area. The waterfall in the lounge is absolutely stunning and the live piano music sets a classy tone. For such a large establishment, the staff is actually quite friendly. If you're ...

    I’m typically not a fan of huge hotels, but this one is actually quite lovely. The lobby is enormous and busy, but the rest of the hotel is surprisingly calm. Many guest rooms have undergone a renovation in the past two years. The rooms above the 14th floor have not, but their condition is still well maintained and modern. The ...

I didn't get to see any rooms here as they said they don't offer a room showing service. Nevertheless, they did ask me whether I wanted to see suites ...

    Though I find that this hotel is pretty expensive for the area, you definitely get your money's worth. FIrst of all, the hotel is situated directly above Gongdeok station, which is a transfer station for Gimpo and Incheon airports, which means you can be there in under an hour. Gongdeok Station is also on Line 6, which makes it a ...

    The best thing about Elle Inn is the huge rooms and gigantic bathrooms with huge bathtubs. They are way larger and much more modern than many of the higher range hotels in Seoul. It's also right next to one subway, making it a short ride to Seoul station, and a short walk to another. It's close to the Sookmyoung University ...

    A fat fingered online booking on a return business trip to Seoul meant I reserved this place rather than the similarly named Fraser Suites in Insadong. And what a pleasant mistake it turned out to be. Having now stayed at both, I'd say this one has the edge when it comes to more contemporary interiors and less tired looking rooms. ...

    The Hamilton Hotel is an Itaewon institution: right in the middle of the action, completely conspicuous, and looming large over the often insane Itaewon party scene. I know that many families stay here because Itaewon during the day is a very interesting and diverse place, replete with restaurants and cafes and all the people watching you can manage in a ...

    The first thing to bear in mind if you are planning on staying here is that it is not where many of the maps on the internet say it is, so use the gogobot map or a direct link to the hotel site. When I mentioned this to the hotel staff they said 'oh yes, we know about that,' which ...
