I stayed here for 3 nights in one of the Korean-style rooms. Aside from the nice aesthetics, the room was very clean and spacious. The location was really great--less than a 10-minute walk to both Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung. The area gets a little dark at night, but I felt safe walking around by myself. There's also a lot of convenient food options nearby. If you're looking for a quick and inexpensive meal (or takeout option), I recommend the little hole-in-the-wall gimbap restaurant down the street from the hotel (near the intersection with the main Insadong street). Front desk staff were also very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

We (2 adults and 2 kids-6/7) stayed for one night before visiting the palace. The kids slept on the floor with hotel-provided sleeping padding while my wife and I slept on the king size bed. It was comfortable for everyone. The breakfast, $7/person was awesome with choices of pancakes and toast with many side items that's perfect for an adult but too big for my 6/7 year olds. You can't beat the location - its in the center of Insadong and took us about 10-15 min to walk to the palace.

The Sunbee is a totally functional hotel with a great location. Right by Insadong, my favourite district for shopping and eating, it has decent rooms and a free laundry!!!! The Korean style rooms come with very thin (2 inch) futons which would be pretty hard for any North Americans to sleep on. I'd recommend the western style. Staff was very friendly and very eager to please.

This was our first of many places to lay our head on our tour through South Korea and we were very impressed with it.

It took us a few extra mins to find as it is a wee bit tucked away in a strange wee side street which looks a bit like the back of office buildings, but don't let this put you off - the location is incredible. Insadong was my favourite district in Seoul and I felt so fortuitous to have stayed there for our first introduction to the city!

In the heart of the Palace Quarter aswell, you are surrounded by incredible buildings and lovely shops and handicrafts and not to mention the warren of restaurants.
Ashamed to say I can't remember the name of the restaurant we found in one of the many streets (not sure it had a name....it was fantastic, so def. explore this area)

Back to the hotel - very clean large room, great traditional window blinds, and a large bathroom! Of all the places we stayed, this was one of the nicest bathrooms. Everything was fresh and spotless, aircon was great and the staff are nice and helpful.
We stayed for 3 nights, and ate at nearby places for breakfast.

Was sad to not be staying here on our way back to Seoul as I booked somewhere in Gangnam.....would definitely have come back here!

Large, spotlessly clean room. Great location within walking of Changedeokgung and Gyeongbokgung Palaces. Good shopping and restaurants (the hotel provided some great recommendations) nearby. Hotel staff was very helpful and we especially want to thank Steven and Kevin who provided good advice and lots of maps !
