    An ideal location for travelers. Located near the station with 3 metro lines in junction. Easy to travel and explore around Seoul. Ideal for first timers. Airport transit bus is right at your door step. Affordable prices too. Cleanliness is acceptable but can be better.

    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,
