This was an amazing placed hotel in the city of Seoul. Close to shops, historical spaces and 1 block from the subway. Starbucks, 7 Eleven and many authentic food outlets within 100 steps of the front door.
Had a great stay at the Sunbee in June 2014. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and spoke enough English. Our room was large and comfortable, and extremely quiet (no interesting view). The location -- just steps from the center of Insadong's main street -- was ideal.
Enjoyed our stay here. Was much cleaner and newer than other hotels we stayed in. It was simple in the room, but clean and modern looking. Enjoyed the tub. Very close to the center of Seoul and to Insadong, where it was fun to walk around and shop.
Hotel Staff very helpful very welcoming, Comfortable and enjoyed the breakfast provided but cannot say the same for Korean Coffee ! Room suitable with a useful A/c System, The Laneways were of great interest to explore and I enjoyed the sights and many markets/restaurants available. Only downside I would say was the Lack of English knowledge with the Majority of the Population< however many young folk who were familiar with English where very helpful with Directions when asked. Not easy to find tourist type "things' like postcards < however it was only a short visit and the many photos I took will be an Enduring memory. Found Seoul a very modern and Clean city and would encourage others to visit< Must comment if one send post cards from this part of the world allow plenty of time for it to arrive at the destination
In general, the hotel was new, very clean, and had a pretty convenient location.
Rooms were small though, and the toilet lacked a screen for the shower area, which resulted in a very wet toilet whenever anyone showered.
Also, the lighting was poor, especially in the toilet, which made it hard to put on makeup. The room lacked a full length mirror (we later found the mirror hidden on the door of the cupboard, but it was not full length).
Another issue was that I requested via expedia for early check-in, and also emailed the hotel, but they did not respond. Upon arrival, I was told that we could do an early check-in if we paid W33,000 (which we did as we were exhausted from the red eye flight).
I have lived in Seoul due to my assignment for a year. I have stayed 11 months of this 12 months in this very good place, after staying 1 month in a very small room in another residence.
During my assignment, I met the one, and I got married from Korea. When I visit Korea in my vacations, this place is our first preference to stay for me and my wife.
The owners and the staff is really helpful and you will see that more than a customer-owner relationship, you are treated like a friend. You will not feel away from home.
All rooms of this facility have their own unique style and they are very comfortable. This place is really wider than majority of 5 star hotels in Seoul. (I know because I have stayed in some)
They provide you wired-wireless internet services for your own room, and fully furnished place for you to live in, including washing machine, fridge, microwave and other utilities. You can stay here for long term as you are at your home.
The place is very central. You can walk to the nearest subway station in 5 minutes, or with a cab, you can reach to the central places in Seoul in 5-10 minutes. The biggest two palaces are in walkway distance, including Insadong, a place to place of visit for some souvenirs.
The comfort you will have here will not make you feel any difference than 5 star hotels.
This place will always be my first choice for my future visits...
This boutique hotel is very nice and clean. Yes, it would be considered a love hotel, but it is very nicely and tastefully decorated with a contemporary design. All amenities, from use of in-room computer, all the toiletries one needs, the items in the mini fridge (iced coffee, water and juice) are all free! There was a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom and the toilet had an automatic bidet and dryer! The only thing that distinguishes this hotel from a regular boutique hotel to a love hotel is the condom discretely provided amongst the other amenities. That being said, I do not see this as a hotel where prostitutes take there clients. This is a young, hip boutique hotel where young couples go to spend a romantic night. Great Hotel for young couples and singles, not a good hotel for families. English is somewhat spoken, but I was able to communicate fine (gentleman on the late night shift spoke no english, but the 2 gentlemen during the day through evening did). I would recommend this hotel, but be aware that this part of town is more Korean with less foreigners so expect little english spoken in the nearby restaurants.
"A well situated hotel close to shopping, and park."
Hotel staff spoke English. Were very helpful and pleasant. Room was an upgrade from what we booked. Would stay here again.
Lovely hotel. Would stay again. Staff spoke English. Complementary breakfast and mini bar plus coffees and juices in lobby. Great walking park just across the street.
