    (Also known as Hotel Crown Jungno)

    The only picture I have of the hotel is this Konglish sign in their lobby: "We are open for better impression." Not sure what they're trying to say at all, and I speak Korean!

    I had a room with two twin beds, and it looked like a very small Holiday Inn room in NYC. It's definitely not luxurious, but comfortable and quiet. We paid a little over US$80 per night (the dollar was weak when we visited).

    I tried asking the hotel staff some general touristy questions (best way to get to certain popular spots, etc.), but they didn't know the answers and had to look them up. I think they're used to arranging tours for foreigners, not necessarily helping them find their way on their own. All the staff were very friendly, but not necessarily proficient in English.

    Make sure to ask for "twin" if you want two beds and "double" if you want one bed. Try various travel/hotel discount sites to get the best price.

    Unique Quality: Pros:
    -location; it's really close to Insadong (my favorite shopping area), palaces, the Anguk subway stop
    -very comfy beds/pillows/sheets

    Cons:
    -the airport bus doesn't drop you off right at the front door; awkward if you have heavy bags
    -no closets/hangers/dressers! (but I hear this is common in Seoul)
    -extremely weak, ancient hair dryer!
    -friendly staff, but they have limited English skills

    Directions: 1-hour ride from airport. Take airport limousine bus to Anguk. Walk down until end of block and turn right at next major intersection. Hotel comes up on left (keep looking up for the neon sign) after 5-minute walk.

One night in Seoul

by helwright

I have one night in Seoul as a stopover, arriving into the airport at 6pm and leaving the next day at midday. For one night where is the best spot to stay in Seoul to see attractions in the evening?

hi ! helwright

You have short time to see Korea. but i recommend to see the street called "Insadong" where you can go easily to reach there. firstly you have to get on the airport express bus to "Insadong" bus number is 602-1, There are so many Korea traditional things such as korea traditional tea house, shops, gallerys and so on. More importantly cheaper inns are there.
Lastly from airport to insadong it'll take 1hour if there is no traffic jam. and bus fare is about $8 and you can buy the bus ticket neat the bus stop.

good luck..

Hmm, have to agree on Insadong. It's one of the places where you can see antiques, artwork and lots of quaint little tea shops. There's this great restaurant there called "sanchon" where traditional dances are performed at nightfall and where you can have sumptuous meal ! Unfortunately, it's very popular and I think you might need to make reservations.You can find more details of the contact no etc in my seoul webpage.
As for accomodations, I think you can stay at the nearby Hotel Crown Insadong.
Hope this helps, have a gd trip!

cheers
