Cafe lovers delight!
We were right in front of the Ikseondong hanok eateries - like the popular Cheongsudang, Oncheonjib, Mil Toast & Nakwon Station. Walkable distance to Cafe Onion too! There is a basic hot bath in the basement and you can do your laundry too.

Great if traveling alone
I remember staying here five years ago on my own and thought the hotel was great with a great location so I decided to stay here again. However, this time, with three people, the room was too small. The bathroom was too small. It’s a great price for the location but I would probably look for another place in the future. Especially if I am traveling with another person.
