My fiance and I travel to Korea every year and we love to explore different parts of Seoul. Makers Hotel is the perfect location. It is located right next to the metro and it is also right across a little flea market (Ikseon dong) that has food, coffee, beer, and little shops. It was perfect for a weekend getaway, we loved it! In addition, the room was quaint and the staff is extremely friendly. I highly recommend Makers Hotel.
The bed was a little stiff for my back, but everything else as great!
The staff was PHENOMENAL. Our luggage was lost on the flight over and the man at the front desk, Mike, helped us through the whole process, even being the middle man with the airport as we didn't speak Korean. Also, our rooms were always well cleaned and the entire hotel was just ADORABLE. A++ location, right by the subway and walking distance to many popular destinations. Also an amazing array of shops and restaurants right across the street. Plus free wifi in every room and an attached coffee shop downstairs. What more could you ask for? Will definitely stay again.
Our only complaint was that the beds were too firm, but even that was just personal preference. So in all reality, no negatives from us.
A stay at MAKERS HOTEL places you in the heart of Seoul, steps from SACHOOM Theater and a 2-minute drive from Changgyeonggung Palace. Featured amenities include a computer station, multilingual staff, and luggage storage.
