Hotel was in great location near 2 main palaces and the market. Lots of shops and restaurants around. Room very clean and had all conveniences. Small cafe, but only served coffee, no food or tea. The front desk was great, and very helpful. Steven spent time with me to help me register my COVID test on Q code, and Mr. Moon found a pharmacy open at night when I needed medicine and walked me half way there to show me the way. I really appreciated the help and kindness of the staff, and would definitely recommend the hotel. It was also very quiet.

We really enjoyed this hotel! The location was great and even better was the warm hospitality we had from the employees. They were extremely accommodating, helping us with getting taxis and allowing us a late check out. Also really appreciated being about to rent a mobile wifi at a very reasonable charge. Would definitely stay there again!

Free adopters, Free water. Not spotless clean , as the inner door is dusty. We've booked 2 non smocking rooms , one of the rooms was bad with smokey smell. Shower room is big, the room is big compared to most seoul hotel. Cold service, maybe that's so called Korean style. location is not close to subway, but there are restaurants and supermarket near by.

Stayed here one night with a friend in a deluxe twin. Staff at the hotel reception were very friendly, spoke English. Room was very clean and spacious. Beds were very comfortable. We paid additional 7,000 each for the breakfast which was great value - included coffee, juice, and a choice of french toast with sausage, and bacon. Would visit again, as the location is great for the palace area and hopefully i'll be back to do some hiking!

This little hotel was very clean and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They spoke English! There is an elevator and there were lots of tourist brochures in the lobby. I reserved the "Korean style" room. The Korean touches were window screens and a table on the floor. The window opened for fresh air. I was there in March, so I don't need aircon, but the temperature of the room was comfortable. The bathroom was a lot nicer than I expected - very roomy. My room had plenty of room and a comfortable bed. It was a great value for the money. I would stay here again. The only negative was that it was a little bit hard for taxis to find, so ask the front desk for a business card with instructions on it to show to taxi drivers. The location is otherwise very good - centrally located and felt safe.

The hotel is tucked at a street corner right around the big Central Mark Hotel. Have to say I was a bit misled by the rave reviews, grand pictures from the hotel website and thought this is a much larger hotel. Still give it a 4-star as the fault is on mine that I did not read all the details before booking. This is actually a 2-star hotel according to the hotel itself, while the room is clean with a decent shower and comfortable bed but the walls and furniture are cheaply made and the room is relatively small and no table that you do work. The most disappointing part is that we visited the place in December, the room temperature was defaulted to 32 Celsius - this is insane and it only cooled down one degree a day no matter how you try to adjust the thermos. You practically being toasted in the room all night long. Luckily the hotel opens the windows while letting the heater runs ... what a waste. The location is excellent thou, in walking distance to many major attractions but there are plenty other nicer hotels around too.

Very happy with my stay in the Sunbee. Staff are lovely and helpful; rooms are clean and well-sized; very handy to have a free washer and dryer to use; and in a location great for both transport and exploring by foot. Didn’t try the restaurant so don’t know what that’s like. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Big rooms, comfortable beds & helpful staff. Located near the shops, restaurants & attractions of Insadong. Nearby also are supermarkets. Drawbacks are the limited variety of breakfast options & the lack of shower curtains in the bathroom. But over-all, I would give go back & stay again. Value for money

We loved the Hotel Sunbee, it was a comfortable, clean, friendly hotel and the location could not have been better. We were minutes walk from Insadong with its shops & restaurants and also minutes from Jonggak & Angguk metro stations so it was easy to get to anywhere on the metro, plus places like Jonguensa temple, Bukchon Hanok Village & several of the palaces were also in easy walking distance. Reception were friendly & helpful, keeping our luggage for us when we arrived too early to check in and giving great advice on which airport limousine bus to take. The room (we chose Korean style) was large, clean & very comfortable. One thing to note is that climbing out of the bath would be tricky for someone with reduced mobility as the side of the bath is very wide. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel but there is a large Starbucks in the Jongno tower about 5 minutes walk away.

The Sunbee Hotel offers very generously-sized rooms, especially considering its prime location in Seoul. It is perfectly-located for Seoul first-timers within a half mile of Gyeongbokgung, Changdeokgung, Bukchon Hanok Village, and the Myeong-dong shopping district. It is nestled in a neighborhood full of cafés, restaurants, art studios, and craft shops. It is an easy bus ride from and to Incheon Airport on the 6011 (and several others - we just happened to get on the 6011 both ways). A good breakfast is included, beds are comfortable, and bathrooms are large and modern. Rooms have heated floors and there’s even a decently-sized closet. It is easy to whisk around Seoul via the Anguk or Jongno 3-ga Metro stops. We highly recommend The Sunbee and would gladly stay again.
