  • Excellent stay, very comfortable and affordable and very warm considering it was during winter. Staff were very friendly and helpful (thanks Pei) and is in a very convenient location next to the subway and popular eating street. Will recommend Pencil Guesthouse to friends when they visit Seoul.

  • Pencil mini hotel is really clean and the staffs are very friendly! The only downside is that there is no elevator. So if you have a heavy luggage, stay at the lower floors. (But no worries, the staffs are helpful.)
