    The hotel room is clean and comfortable and the hotel location is very convenient, just about 5-6minutes walking distance from the metro station.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I've stayed in a double bedded room - the hotel is situated near 2 subway stations which are both within walking distance (~5min). Located along the Insadong shopping street, there are various food and shopping options to choose from. The room provided was the same as the pictures online and was clean. However, the air conditioner was in 'heating' mode during my stay hence there was no ventilation if I were to switch the air conditioner off. The hotel staff advised me to open the windows which I did, and my sleep was affected at night as I was able to hear noises outside.

    The room was very clean, bathroom was spotless. I stayed on 11th floor and it was very noisy during night time because of the construction. The air conditioner remote was only in Korean so it’s not acceptable for non Korean guests (((

    This hotel is located in the heart of Insa-Dong and just a few minute walk to the train station. The room was small but quite and comfortable. The choice for breakfast was limited but it was authentic and delicious. The front desk staff are friendly. I forgot my iPhone charger but I was able to borrowed it from the front desk. I enjoyed my stay here and would stay again in the future.

    Recommend! Good location and decent breakfast

    The price was right. I can’t complain. Bed is hard but that is a Korean custom. Soft pillow mattresses are a luxury of the West. Breakfast is not western style. Don’t expect that, just take it for what it is and enjoy your stay.

    Great location to explore and experience Seoul

    Hotel Kuretakeso was great. We arrived early in the morning (our flight landed about 6 AM, we got to the hotel probably about 7:30 or so) and were able to go drop off our bags at the front desk for luggage storage service so that we were able to go explore without a bunch of stuff until we could check in at 4 PM. The location is fantastic! Right next to a metro station (seriously like a two minute walk) for convenient access to all of Seoul, but also a great area to walk around and explore. Insadong is the historic area of Seoul and there are lots of great food options around, shops, tea houses, etc. Gwangjang Market is about a fifteen minute walk from the hotel and Gyeongbokgung Palace is about a 20 minute walk away. Absolutely perfect. At night, just down the street next to the metro station entrance tons of street food vendors set up shop and there are always people there enjoying amazing food and good drinks. Cannot recommend this area of Seoul enough. Hope to be back soon. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms western style, everything was very clean. We were admittedly always on the go, so we never ate the breakfast available at the hotel, but saw plenty of people taking advantage of it when we dropped our bags off that first morning. Park's Korean BBQ right next door to the hotel is spectacular.
