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 ...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

When staying at a guest house, the experience can be deeply enriched by a kind, interesting, and warm host. Mr. Bong is affable, laid-back, and exudes the air of someone who ...

    The dark concrete walls of the PJ Hotel doesn't exactly look inviting from the outside, but inside is a totally different story.

    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. ...
