Due to our location which is in the hot spot of Seoul city, you could easily going to many different famous tour spots and enjoy different kinds of features in Korea. Marronier Park, which is famous for its musical performances is located near here. And Changkyeongkong Palace is just 5 minutes from here. Also you may easily go to Dongdaemun and Myeongdong, which are regarded as the fashion center in Korea, plus Namdaemun, where is a representative traditional market in Korea. All of them are in the subway line No.4 which is just connected to the same line with us. Dongdaemun takes just one subway station from our guesthouse, three stations to Myeongdong and four stations to Namdaemun.
