Electric outlets require an adapter to accommodate US type plugs. The adapters do not fit tight and must be wedged with something (used folded paper) in order to make contact and allow electricity to flow. The area of Insadong has some good shopping and restaurants.

Nice hotel, located in popular Insadong shopping area. Rooms on the small side, but ok. Odd arrangement with front desk on second floor. Made us wonder about security. It seems anyone could enter the building on the first floor and access elevators to any floor. At night though, a room key is required to enter the hotel.

Ideal location for this coffee addict! Centrally located to shopping/dining options for Insadong and Ikseondong (stays open later). Transit options abound! Price is very fair. Hotel amenities were still closed during my stay so can't comment on gym, spa, etc. facilities, but really appreciated the free plum juice and ice tea in the lobby!
