Fantastic location, spacious clean rooms, helpful and professional staff. This is my favorite hotel in Seoul. It is on a quiet small side street off of the main street of Insadong, the best neighborhood to visit in Seoul. Cafes, galleries, boutiques are all within 2 minutes walk of the hotel. The main tourist sights and subway are also close by....

This is my third visit to Seoul and every time I stayed at different hotel until I find this one. This hotel located right at the middle of Insadong area but only a little bit difficult to find as it is hidden inside the small road (Insadong 7 Gil). However, it is still very convenient as it is close to...

There's a reason why this place has so many rewards from service to cleanliness to location and price, Hotel Sunbee has it all! A small, quaint hotel tucked into the side of the famous Insadong street, this is the ideal place to stay if you want to be surrounded by traditional Korean culture, palaces and back alley bars and restaurants....

Great location, easy to find, great rooms, very helpful staff. Only had one night there, but would go back. Very quiet for being in the middle of a big city. Excellent restaurants all round. Wonderful craft and other shopping only a couple of blocks away.

Its a cute boutique hotel right in Insadong off main road, our driver had little problem finding it first. Walkable distance to metro station. For family of 4, their family room has one king bed, and the kids had to sleep on the floor, like tatami style. Large bathroom, and toilet is separated from the bathroom, which is good. Two...

Right in the middle of Insadong, walking distance to all palaces, nearby metro stations. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Hotel looks pretty new inside - outside is quite dense with other buildings, so no views. Breakfast is nice, with selection of 3 dishes. Recommended for a nice central Seoul stay!

Staying in Insadong

Neighbourhood Profile
Insadong
Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts, fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in particular has become a local institution for its unique spiral layout and the many boutique shops inside that sell handmade crafts and goods. This is the perfect neighborhood to sample a range of Korean dishes, with vegetarian Korean temple cuisine restaurants being a popular draw, but street food carts are just as famous. As a top tourist destination, crowds can swell, particularly on weekends, but you can find some rest and respite in one of the private art galleries or grab a cup of Korean tea in a tea house – many of which are located in beautifully renovated traditional Korean homes.
