Fantastic location but doesn't deliver on some previous reviews
The location is fantastic as you can walk to all the major sights quite easily. They also have a pleasant 'common room' in the basement with computers which is where breakfast is served. That's the good...More

Me and my friend stayed here for 6 days and 5 nights. The location of the guesthouse is conveniently located at the center of seoul.

... or as a trip with friends, since the staff is amazing. They are not only helpful giving directions, helping you to plan your tours, etc., but they also dedicate time to talk with you about anything, like friends you have known from years.
Amazing owner Max speaks four languages and his staff also are skilled in several languages. A one minute walk from the subway in a neighborhood of restaurants. Rooms are small but quite adequate and clean, each with its own bathroom and fridge. An excellent value...More

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.
