We stayed at the Goodmorning Haotel Motel, which was possibly the best value hotel we’ve ever gotten of all 51 countries we’ve travelled to. For $30 we got an exceptionally clean room, big tv, nice towels, bathrobes, huge shower with floor to ceiling glass windows to the main room – all the toileteries we could wish for – and a great location just off the main subway line.
We had a lot of difficulty finding it. The directions were completely wrong in the guidebook. It’s actually just a 5 minute walk from the subway. (Thankfully we had an amazing parking lot attendant who ran all over asking people where it was, and then patiently walked us back there. By that time it took us 30 min. to walk back to it – we were that lost! He then refused to even let us buy him a drink even though it was approximately 1million F/C).
So, to get there: Take the subway to Yeonsan-dong, Exit 1. Turn right almost immediately. Walk 2 short blocks. Turn left at the Japanese restaurant. You will see a Family Mart 1 short block ahead on the right. It’s just past there, on the right, one and a half blocks from the turn. It’s a big white building with a big poem on the side.
Please do us a favour – if you ever use these directions please drop us a note so we know!
