The hotel is well established and great for tourists before covid. The location is near Guanghuamun and accessible to many nearby attractions and cafe by bus or walking. Perhaps a Bus guide in English will help. This is within walking distances to Dongdaemun and also Chungmuro. It is situated in some old houses lots, and interesting. Night time is very quiet. The front desk can arrange Airport Taxi at about USD60 at your timing, and that was a great help. The airport limo and taxi services in Korea has turned bad after covid, so this service support was fantastic. My only complain is the hotel is a little old and the toilet may need some upgrade. For week end stay over in Seoul, this is great value for money. i have to put in this positive review because the front desk was so friendly and supportive.

Room was spacious, hotel amenities and overall service were acceptable, however everyday breakfast served were repetitive would have been better if there are a variety of breakfasts every alternate days, Air conditioning malfunctioned on the 3rd day, although the staff are unable to fix it in time before I check out, but they managed to adjust the temperature from their side, and did made effort to made my stay well serviced.

This was one of the nicest Asian hotels we've stayed in. The room was large with two queen size beds, so our family of 4 fit very comfortably. Even though the hotel is right in the middle of the city, it was very quiet. The hotel itself is difficult to find upon arrival because it is tucked back off the streets (our taxi driver couldn't find it with GPS). However, it is in an excellent location to get you around the city. Three subway stations are nearby as well as many bus stops. We actually ended up walking most of the time though because the hotel is close to many things. The hotel breakfast was very good each day. Staff was friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here!

I have stayed at the Nafore Hotel twice. Each stay was - well - outstanding. The Hotel is amazingly clean. The bed is comfortable. The room is clean. The bathroom is clean. Everything in the room works. The people who work in the hotel are friendly, helpful, and a joy to deal with. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Hotel Nafore. Perfect location, great accommodation, great people.

We only stayed one night here right. The room had a confortable size. No issue here as it was only one night. The location was great. Gwangjang market is a great part of Seoul to stay in and it was within walking distance to MYEONGDONG area.

The hotel location is good. It is located near Jongno 3 gu. Surrounded with a number of local eateries, convenience stall. Walkable distance to Gwangjiang market, Dongdaemum and fairly easy to commute to most location such as Myeongdong, Noryangjin Fish Market, Hongik Uni and Ehwa Women Univ. The room itself is not impressive. Big bathroom but little wardrobe space. Daily room makeup is only replaced towels, toiletries. No change in bed sheets/linens, no cleaning of tables and floor. Breakfast was not included but to have breakfast, just required to buy coupon which per pax is Won 7,000. Simple breakfast so don’t expect much. Front desk managers are polite and also they are nice in replying our queries.

We spent 5 nights at Nafore hotel and it's a really great value for your money. Hotel is a 5min walk from subway and buses. There is a convenient store (7-11) nearby. There is also the bus 6002 stop not far, so it's really helpful if you travel from/to Incheon airport (about 1hour drive) The only inconvenient I found is if you're a woman travelling solo, be careful of small alleys around the hotel at night. Otherwise, rooms are clean, well soundproofed, Wifi is fast, and staff is really great.

Stayed at Hotel Nafore for almost 3 weeks on a solo trip to Seoul and it was the perfect choice for me. Given that it was a long trip, I wanted the luxury of space, a firm bed, a hot bath after walking all day, fast WiFi and easy access to public transport. Hotel Nafore delivered all of the above with warm and cheery hospitality. It’s about an 8 minute walk to 2 different subway lines and bus stops. Can be a little tricky along the pavement with a suitcase but I managed. It’s got all the usual trappings - kettle with tea and coffee, toiletries, and lots of local tv channels to choose from. Pro tip - if you bring along some bath salts for a daily soak, it’ll really enhance the value of the tub! Hotel Nafore is about a 30 minute walk to Dongdaemun along the river, 15 minutes do Myeongdong, 20 minutes to Namdaemun, and 10 minutes to Insadong. There’s also a tourist information booth nearby if you head towards Myeongdong above the river. In that sense, it’s very central and you can easily walk to most of those main areas. Use the Naver app for directions and public transport info. The hotel is situated smack in the middle of a large hardware shop cluster, so immediate surroundings are not scenic and the main food area/convenience stores are about a 5-10 minute walk away. That said, the staff are helpful and kind, especially Mr Lee who went out of his way to make sure that I had everything I needed. Including umbrellas on rainy days, and taxis when I didn’t want to lug my luggage to the bus stop. As for locating the hotel, I didn’t bother going through the small lanes. I used the hotel in front (Venue G) as a guide and found it easily. Just take the side lane and you’ll be there in 10 seconds. No problem. Also, note that they have a large scale in the lobby if you need to weigh your luggage, a little open space on the rooftop and a covered smoking area at the side of the hotel. All in all, a very enjoyable stay and I would definitely stay there again. Thanks, Hotel Nafore.
