Gyeongbokgung

161, Sajik-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea
4.5

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 ...

    There are two things that made this hotel for me: the staff and the cats! While I realise the cats may not be for everyone, it would be hard not to feel made welcome here. The staff were extremely chatty and helpful. Although I was there in the afternoon, I sensed a bit of a party atmosphere. The hostel 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 ...

    Given the prime location and price range of Koreana hotel, I was sadly unimpressed with it's quality and service. With so many luxury options in the surrounding area, Koreana seems to be doing little to keep up with the competition. The entrance and public areas of the hotel feel a bit rundown, and more like a straight-up convention center than ...

    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 ...

    Just a stone's throw away from both the thronged streets of Myeong Dong and Namsan Park, I had no idea this cute little area, full of windy streets and coffee shops was even here. Zaza's itself is a gem of a hostel. It’s obvious a great deal of care and thought has gone into its design. The staff were really ...

    I loved the views from the rooms. If you request a high-floored room you can see right out over the whole city. The private rooms can fit between 6-8 people comfortably and are really spacious for a hostel, with some of the beds tucked away in a cute little loft area. They come equipped with their own kitchenette, refrigerator and ...

    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. ...

    Tucked in the middle of a cluster of Seoul's busiest and most popular tourist neighborhoods, Lotte Hotel is a great option for easy access to some of the best attractions in the city. Walking distance to two different Palaces, scenic walks with traditional architecture, frenzied shopping and a plethora of restaurants all lie within a 5-20 min walking radius of ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
