Steps to Seoul’s Sites on the Cheap

The Astoria Hotel offers affordable accommodations and a central location for easy access to Seoul. This hotel is roughly an hour’s drive from the Incheon International Airport and is reachable by metro and bus transportation. You’ll find it easy to explore the area's major shopping hubs like Dongdaemun Market or the renowned Gyeongbok Palace and N Seoul Tower; there is plenty to see and do just steps away.

From Staggering City Views to Supreme Shopping

If you came for some shopping, the Dongdaemun Market near the Astoria Hotel should keep you occupied for a few days. There are thousands of shops offering a variety of clothing and merchandise. Once you’ve filled your bags, head to the Korea House for a unique dining and performance experience, but make sure you book a reservation in advance. If you’d rather spend your evening looking at the sites from above, make your way up to the N Seoul Tower for unmatched views of the city.

Spend an afternoon taking in some of Korea’s history and culture. The Gyeongbok Palace rests in the center of Seoul and provides an excellent contrast of ancient and modern architecture. If you find yourself here at 10 am or 3 pm, you’ll witness the changing of the Royal Guard. Take a step back in time by visiting Namsangol Hanok Village; this area consists of traditional Korean houses, perfect if you don’t have time to sightsee outside the city.

Inexpensive Hotel and Impeccable Central Location

This 80-room hotel lies in the heart of Central City, meaning you'll be just steps away from much of what Seoul has to offer. Room sizes vary from the standard Double Room to the larger Deluxe Twin. Rooms feature a private bathroom, air-conditioning, and complimentary high-speed internet to keep you connected. Start your day off with a hot breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant before you sightsee, or make use of the 24-hour business center to get a little work done. A complimentary area shuttle will help you reach many nearby sites.

The Bottom Line

The Astoria Hotel is ideal for budget-minded travelers. The hotel’s proximity to tourist sites makes it easy for first-time travelers to reach landmarks and shopping. Although its furnishings are dated compared to the JW Marriott, you may find that an older hotel has its own unique charm and is worth the money you’ll save.

Rough Guide
Set away from the bustle of central Myeongdong (though still on a main road), the gently decaying Astoria has rooms that are acceptable but totally devoid of frills.
Lonely Planet
White and pine decor make for pleasant rooms. They’re reasonably sized, but a faded look is creeping in
Ask for a room with a Namsan view and keep your eyes on that.
