The hotel is located near Gwanghwamun and there are full of things to see around. The hotel is not luxurious, but it is neat, clean and cozy like home. A bunch of nice restaurants and galleries are very close to the hotel.

I stayed with my family. To look around the very center of Seoul, Somerset's location was really perfect! We have enjoyed staying in Somerset and the view of the problematic Blue House but the breakfast was bit disappointing. I was wondering Somerset's F&B policy, actually.

Well furnished apartment for stays in this big city. Near to government offices area and a short walk from nearest Metro and Folk Museum. There is a rooftop swimming pool but it closes in Autumn for Winter as it is open-aired and it gets a bit chilly!

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighbourhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighbourhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
