Namsan Guest House in Seoul #If you're looking for a budget / affordable and comfy place to stay in Seoul, you can consider Namsan Guest House (남산 게스트 하우스). It's located very near to Seoul Tower a.k.a Namsan Tower and walking distance to shopping paradise, Myeong Dong. It's very near to the Myeong Dong subway station(명동역) too, Seoul Subway Line 4. There are few restaurants and 24 hours marts(Family Mart and etc.) all the way to the guest house.
The guest house consist of Namsan Guest House 1&2 and the newer one Namsan Guest House 3. The receptionist even recommended me to stay Namsan Guest House 3, the next time I visit Seoul. Because the facilities are newer and little more comfortable.
