Don't know what previous reviewers were complaining about - if the comforters were too hot they could have turned up the AC to make the room colder :) close to Insadong and subway; clean comfortable rooms. Problem with AC was fixed within minutes.
Enjoyed our stay here. Was much cleaner and newer than other hotels we stayed in. It was simple in the room, but clean and modern looking. Enjoyed the tub. Very close to the center of Seoul and to Insadong, where it was fun to walk around and shop.
we stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our trip to south korea. We were looking for a unique location that would give us a good flavor of seoul and was close to some tourist attractions. after researching many options, it seemed sunbee fit the bill for us: good price, fun location, boutique, and had good reviews so we booked and had a great experience! overall, we are very pleased with our stay at sunbee hotel and would recommend it to anyone travelling to the south korea, who is interested in the insadong area and a quiet hotel to rest at night. the hotel workers spoke plenty of english and were helpful with directions throughout our stay. im not sure life will take us to seoul again, but if it does we would love to revisit this area.
Very good and safe location with police around all the times. Room is spacious and clean. Exceptional guest service, most of the staff speak very fluent English. I will definitely recommend this serviced residence to others. Bravo!

If you're looking for a room in a great location that is great value you can't go past this!
There are no fancy restaurants in the hotel or mini bar but if you're paying less than $75 that shouldn't be what you're looking for.
What you do get is a very clean, fairly new hotel with TV and air con in the rooms along with a fridge. In Korea you can't just expect everyone to speak English but most of the hotel staff do which was very helpful.
The rooms are small but perfectly formed (at the end of the day Seoul is far too big and exciting to sit around in your hotel all day anyway!)
The hotel was easy to find (exit 5 at Dongdaemun metro station and its on the left after 10-15m) with so many sights within 5-10 minutes walk! Everything is on your doorstep, the gate, the stream, the textiles market, the metro, the city bus tour the soon to be opening culture park and a multitude of food offerings from traditional street food to western food!
If I end up in Seoul again I'm booking this place for sure!
