Great spot that is near to a lovely part of Seoul. The staff were very friendly and spoke English well. We were very pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and the amenities. If you're a first-timer in Seoul, you could not do better!

The Sunbee is a great place to stay as it's right near the main street of Insadong with its shops and restaurants as well as being close to two metro stations. The room we had on the street was very quiet and spacious. We didn't try the breakfast (I prefer to make my own) but it's there if you want...

We stayed here for four nights in the heat of August and it was the perfect spot. We had a triple - King plus a single - and there was plenty of room for three adults. Staff at the hotel couldn't have been nicer - fluent English, very friendly, incredibly helpful. Free laundry was a plus during the heat wave!...

Clean, spacious, nice staff, excellent breakfast, walking distance to shopping and restaurants. What more can you ask? All the staff speak good English plus there are a couple of young guys who speak like Americans. Breakfast is healthy ,hearty, westernized and kind of gourmet. Excellent value.

The Sunbee Hotel is situated in a small street next to the pedestrian shopping street. So it is quiet but close to all important sight seeing places. The personel is very very friendly and the hotel room is very comfortable. Every morning you get a different braekfast.

Location is perfect. Right in the center of Insadong with shops and restaurants! The room is big and clean. We arrived early in the morning and they let us check in right away. The laundry service (washer and dryer) is pretty helpful after 2 weeks of traveling in Asia. We requested late departure as our flight was in the evening...

This pleasant hotel located on a side street off one of the main tourist spots in Seoul is excellent value for money for such a fantastic location. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern whilst the bathroom area is large and comfortable. Breakfast isn't included but the free self service laundry facilities makes up for this.

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.
