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.

Great hotel
Location of the hotel is great, near to shopping, and great food choices. Happy hour drink is a plus, but it closes sharp at 8pm, if your drink is not finished, you still need to leave the hall. Breakfast is at 7am, we have tours leaving at 7.30am, should consider making breakfast available a little earlier, say 6.30am

Nice hotel in Jongno Area
Good location, just 5mins walk from Jongno 3-ga subway station exit 5. But the hotel entrance is so hidden which is not easy to find. It’s clean and furnished with everything you might need, the bathroom is sizeable and clean. However, public bath on B2 is quite disappointing, it’s small and a bit smelly.
