Gyeongbokgung

161, Sajik-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea
10 reviews

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 ...

    Fraser Suites Seoul

    Class:
    0.78 mi from Gyeongbokgung
    5 reviews
    Very Good! - 82% of guests recommend

    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 ...

    Beewon Guesthouse

    4 reviews

    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 ...

    Good! - 79% of guests recommend

    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 ...

    The dark concrete walls of the PJ Hotel doesn't exactly look inviting from the outside, but inside is a totally different story. The staff are all extremely friendly and most of them speak English. I had a million questions about the surrounding area and attractions, and they answered all of them with patience and fluency. There is access to a ...

    Very Good! - 84% of guests recommend

    This hotel is both close to fun, central areas of the city and right on top of a shopping mall and a direct line to the airport. The first thing I noticed was the small park they have built in front, which is a lovely place to just sit in and relax if the weather is good. The next thing ...

    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 ...

    As far as massive Hilton hotel complexes are concerned, this place really is par for the course. The facilities are beautiful, having undergone a ton of updates and construction for the last few years (construction will be completely finished by the end of the summer), and it's easy to see why there were high-end travelers from all over the world ...

    Class:

    9 reviews
    Excellent! - 91% of guests recommend

    Hands down the smartest address in Seoul with a tarriff to match. Rooms and suites are tastefully appointed, though the executive suite we were given on our last visit was suffering from a slight overdose of beige. The on site health club is particularly good and attracts a smattering of well-heeled non-guests too.

    This is by far the best hostel in Seoul. The owner, Mary Wang, has created a truly fantastic space for backpackers, and she is a significant part of what makes this hostel so special. She says it was her destiny to start the business and run a home-away-from-home for travelers, and it shows. All of the guests seem happy here. ...

    Excellent! - 87% of guests recommend

    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 ...

    Very Good! - 80% of guests recommend

    The colorful facade of the hotel's exterior is certainly eye catching in Itaewon. From then on, the hotel's whimsical decoration is certainly among the most fun I've seen among the lobbies of Seoul's hotels. From the over-sized chairs to the large swing seats, the hotel has a funky and fun, "Alice in Wonderland" sort of feel to it. The front ...

    Location wise the Ramada is in a good spot. It's right by Seoul Station so has easy links to most places in the city, around the country and to the airport. 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 ...

    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 ...

    The Bong House (pronounced with a long ‘o’) is run by Mr. Bong himself, a middle-aged Korean man who has created quite the chill little hostel in the busy theater and entertainment district of Hyewa. Upon entering the foyer, I immediately got a good vibe from this spot as I was greeted with tasteful artwork depicting the Buddha as well ...

    The exterior and interior resembles another residential studio apartment in Seoul but Casaville Residence operates like a hotel with its own lobby and staff. Both the standard room and bathroom is a cozy size, just enough for two people. But the room comes with a sink, electric stove, microwave, and mini refrigerator, making it a perfect spot for those on ...

    I was a little bit intimidated when I first approached this hotel, because it looks like something that would normally be out of my budget and too fussy for my tastes. While the prices are definitely higher than other hotels in Seoul, I think it's an excellent value for the area. The staff speak English and are willing to help ...

    Excellent! - 85% of guests recommend

    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 ...
