Accommodation is crucial when traveling abroad, but which hotels in Sinsa and Apgujeong are the best options for tourists to get the most out of their visit?
Today I'm going to introduce you to some hotels in these popular areas of Seoul that we recommend!
Of course cleanliness and amenities are important factors for most, so we took those into account, along with location and price.
Hotel Anteroom Seoul
The first hotel is Hotel Anteroom Seoul in Sinsa. It is very close to the shopping area of Garosugil and Sinsa Station Exit 8, so the location is super convenient.
If you like shopping the latest trends in Korean style, we definitely recommend you check this hotel out.
Although the rooms are not very wide, they are well organized and maximize the use of the space effectively. Rooms also come with some important necessities like a hair dryer, organic soaps, electric kettle, pajamas, and slippers.
The price is very good for the hip area, ranging from around 100,000-880,000 per night depending on room type and time of booking. We were able to grab promo when we visited though and snagged this Twin Room for just 90,000 won!
One of the best features of Hotel Anteroom Seoul is the cafe & bar with outdoor terrace. You can sit and enjoy the breeze from up high and look out at Seoul. Whether day or night, the view of Seoul is beautiful and charming. And hotel guests get a 10% discount, so be sure to check it out.
Additionally, Anteroom has an art exhibition hall in the basement where they often showcase stunning and unique works.
