(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.
