I ended up staying at Hotel dongyangjang Jongno in Seoul when I was looking for a place to stay for a day in a hurry. These days, I have to spend a lot of time outside, so I try to save expenses by finding the most affordable accommodations. Hotel dongyangjang, located near Dongmyo Station, caught my eye, so I decided to stay there.

Hotel dongyangjang Jongno is located in a small alley about a 5-minute walk from Dongmyo Station. At first, when I was wandering around looking for a hotel nearby, the name ‘dongyangjang’ felt so old-fashioned that I initially didn’t pay much attention to it, thinking it must be an old place. But when I accidentally passed by it, I noticed that the exterior of the building and the signboard looked good! When I went in for a closer look, I found that they had recently renovated it, and the price was also affordable, so I decided to stay for a night!

The building has a Korean rice soup restaurant on the first floor, and the hotel starts from the second floor. When facing the building, the entrance is located in the alley on the right side.

As soon as you open the door and enter, you can see a bulletin board like this, where you can find relics showing that it has been operating for a long time under the name Dongyang Inn. Seeing the 1988 on the hygiene rating label, you can tell that it’s a really old building.

The guest room is a bit unique. When you open the door and enter, the bathroom is on the right and the bed space is on the left. There’s just enough space for one bed in the bed area. There wasn’t enough space to spread out my suitcase. This part was a bit disappointing. However, the bed was firm and cozy. The bedding was soft and satisfying.
