We stayed here five nights and found the Sunbee Hotel to be an excellent base for tourists in Seoul. We had a twin room (602), which was really a triple as it had one double and one single bed, both of which were exceptionally comfortable. The room was spacious, clean and perfect for us as a family of three. There...

We stayed at the SunBee for a week and could not have been any more pleased. Front desk staff were always so helpful and were extremely friendly. They provided us with easy to understand directions and maps and offered suggestions to meet our dietary (we are vegetarians) needs. Several staff are excellent speakers of English and were never at a...

I have been to Seoul a number of times and stayed at various locations. This was my favourite. We booked a twin room and this came with one queen and one single bed. The hotel is not very large and has lots of international tourists. There is a small cafe which serves an inexpensive breakfast. Both the room and breakfast...

Hotel Sunbee was everything we like about locally owned non-chain hotels - genuine service, good location, excellent value for money, and a comfortable stay. We were in the Korean deluxe room for four nights and truly enjoyed our visit. As mentioned elsewhere, the location is excellent - three subway stops in close walking distance, and major cultural sites all in...

Breakfast was really tasty. You can choose from two entrees. Nice quiet hotel near Insadong. Very clean room and helpful staff. Can be tough to find but so are most things on Seoul. We also stayed at Somerset and liked this better.

Fantastic location, spacious clean rooms, helpful and professional staff. This is my favorite hotel in Seoul. It is on a quiet small side street off of the main street of Insadong, the best neighborhood to visit in Seoul. Cafes, galleries, boutiques are all within 2 minutes walk of the hotel.

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.
