Hotel Crown Insadong, Seoul

As promised, here comes the review of Hotel Crown Insadong.

This hotel is very easy to find, very near the MRT station. Hotel rates via online travel agencies varies but we went directly to the hotel and paid Won 100,000 per night with free breakfast.

We arrived late so after paying, we dropped our bag in the room and went out to grab a bite. You don’t have to worry, so many restaurants around this area but since we were looking for a decent place, we were lucky to find one.

After dinner, we went back to the hotel only to find out that the aircon in the room was not working. Terrible! What do you think of a sticking carpet? Yikes.. read more

Hotel Sun Bee, Seoul

As you may have already know, I went to Seoul to meet some possible business partners.

We always book our hotel at Asia Travel. You will get really good rates for top hotels, they are around 20%-40 % lower than actual hotel rates.

CE is an antique collector and of course, we settled for a hotel near Insadong. This is the center for Korean arts & crafts, antiques and typical Korean restaurants. This place is also near the palaces which I will blog in the coming days (still busy at work).

We initially booked at Hotel Crown Insadong just because the name of the hotel bears Insadong. Thats an easy search. That was the only criteria in my search – INSADONG. I will make a separate review of this hotel in a few days. After 2 days, we were informed by hotel staff that we can no longer extend our stay as they were fully booked. No choice but to search for another hotels, we went to 2 hotels – all fully booked. Luckily, a stranger approached me who probably heard us while talking and suggested to try Hotel Sun Bee, it was blessing! Thanks God! read more
