The hotel is new and cool, it is a motel type as it doesn't provide full service and there is no room service as well the restaurant is not operational during lunch or dinner. The restaurant only serves breakfast and it is very limited as you can only choose one main course, but the offering are super great quality and served in a cool environment. The check-in area is on level 16, like any Moxy is a bar where you are served choices of welcome drink which is a nice change instead of being served a standardize one. The rooftop also offers an outdoor area and panoramic view of Seoul. The room is quite nice, simple and spacious. The bathroom is also spacious compared to other motel. The bed is super comfortable, they also offer connected Google Chrome and Netflix, but the setup is Korean and the Netflix needs you to login so don't forget to check-out. As a bonus, I think this is the one of the few motel that offer Evian as in room water amenity. The waiting area on level 1 is also quite nice with oversized projector and gaming options. And being in the heart of insadong, you can walk at the heart of old classic Korean street but renewed in cafe style and restaurant as well as shops perfect for a date. All in all, I would recommend as the hotel is quite convenience in location being right in front of subway.

Hotel opened around Oct 2019 and it is very new. I am a frequent traveller to Seoul with stays ranging from 1-4 days, and I usually stayed at Aloft Myeongdong while I wanted to give new hotel a try. Travelling from the airport was relatively easy as I travelled by the Airport express, and the hotel is literally a metre away from the subway station. It is also right in front of Iksondong and Insadong, and you can walk to Gwanghwamoon within ~15minutes. Staffs were very friendly and professional. Being Titanium member, I was offered a complementary upgrade and they've also offered welcome gift between food credit or points. Rooms were clean and spaces were used very wisely (i.e. lots of hangers!!) and very practical. Beds were comfortable, and if I must point out one negative is the lack of sound proof. If you are sensitive, you will get to hear certain sounds late at night or early in the morning, but I usually doze off easily hence it wasn't a major issue for me. Gym was small, but again practical and I managed to work out everyday. The real hidden gem is of this hotel is their rooftop bar. House ales were good, while the view and the music were top notch. I would definitely come back to this hotel during my next short visit to Seoul.

Didn't see many reviews on this hotel. Never tried the brand Moxy neither. But still decided to give it a go because it is managed by Marriott and secondly it is located in Jongno 3(Sam) Ga Metro Station. I have stayed in this area before (Ibis Insadong) and has a good impression in this neighborhood. Turns out the stay didn't disappoint me and my companion. The location is really good as Jongno 3(Sam) Ga Metro Station is located in three Metro lines which makes travelling around easy. We took taxi on a few occasions and the price is also reasonable to go to Myeongdong and Hongdae. The hotel itself also close to Ikseon-dong which is newly emerged as one of the popular Hanok Village with hip cafes, restaurants and shops among youngsters. At night, there are many street stalls (Pojangmacha food stall. / 포장마차) and many restaurants nearby. The room itself is not large but I love its design a lot. Everything in the room is practical and in good quality. The bed is very comfortable and one good point to mention that they got air-con in the winter time while their window could be opened which is a lifesaver for those who are not used to the heater. The front desk staff in Moxy is conversant in English, making communication easy and hassle free. A slight downside is that the nearest airport bus station to Incheon is around 10 minute walk but the bus schedule is very frequent which outweigh the cons. Will definitely reconsider Moxy when visiting Seoul again next time.

We enjoyed our time at the Seoul Insadong Moxy. Location - 4/5 - The location is right around the corner of the center of much shopping and food; however at night - many night market stalls block the entire street and entrance. Minus 1 star for the constant drunk and homeless people wandering around outside the hotel. It’s almost impossible to get a cab late at night due to the night market traffic. Need to order an intl taxi from your uber app (rates still reasonable). It’s off of a subway line that can go to the airport with one transfer. Check in staff - 5/5 - Excellent. Welcomed my platinum status, received welcome drinks, and explained the hotel and rooms. Honored late check out at 4pm because of my Platinum. Room - 5/5 (Moxy standards) - it’s a moxy so you have to understand that means small rooms and “party” scene. I’ve stayed in different Moxy’s for many nights including New York and Chicago. They have the Moxy bare necessities (eg hang coat/shirts on exposed coat rack, no closets etc) but still very comfortable. Loved how two Evian waters were included and the nice large shower. Elevators - 3/5 - the week we stayed, there was only one elevator (out of two) working which caused waits of up to 4 to 6 mins at times. Lobby 5/5 - on top floor with all guest rooms below. Security - 5/5 - 24 hour doorman downstairs by the game room / entrance.

Dear. travelerflyer Warm greetings from Moxy Seoul Insadong Hotel! Thank you for your loyalty of Marriott and sharing your feedback from your recent stay at the Moxy Seoul Insadong . We are pleased that you choose us for your trip to Seoul and thank you for recognizing for our spacious guest rooms, kind staff service and convenient location. But I was very disappointed with the level of service you received at our elevator which I agree that is not the usual international hotel service guests should receive. I will certainly address this issue with my team to take necessary steps and to update our brand image. We have been fixed elevator for guest convenience. Once again, thank you for your feedback and we hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the near future. Thank you. Best regards, Katie KANG Front Office Manager.

We stumbled upon this newly opened hotel in the insides of the city and we were not dissapointed. The rooms are clean and pleasant; decors appropriate and stylish; staff are so nice and welcoming so, we had a smooth and comfortable stay as always with Marriot hotels. Location is perfect! We will definitely come back!
