Seoul Hotel for Family of 4

Anybody have a recommendation for a good hotel alternative in Seoulfor a family of 4 in July (4-5 nights). I am looking to spend up to $200 a night if possible for the 4 of us. Central and close to transportation location is important for us.

One alternative are the Serviced Apartments. Any recommendations?

Thank you!

we stayed at the Ibis in Insadong. Good location for getting around and within your budget. I am pretty sure they have family rooms

I found a family room at the RYSE hotel (Marriott). Anybody stayed there? Good location?

Thank you

Personally, I'd rather stay in the area crellston mentioned -- near Insadong, Gyeongbokgung, and multiple subway lines.
Is the RYSE hotel near anything that's a particularly high priority for you and your family?

No. Hotel just had great reviews and was able to find a room that would accommodate all 4 of us. (2 adults and 2 kids).
First time in Seoul so any recommendation much appreciated.

Btw. I checked the ibis and the rooms only take 3 people. Somebody mentioned the Fraser managed apartments. Need to check them out. Do you know that one?

I stayed at the Hostel Korea 11th -- Changdeokgung. Very basic, but it met my needs. I think it has family rooms, but you'll have to check. otherwise, you should be able to search by room size, location, and price on booking.com.

Is the jw Marriott Dongdaemun square in a good location? I know it is a great hotel but not sure if centrally located for tourist attractions.
Thanks!

It seems near the Dongdaemun Yangnueong (medicine/herbs market), which I really enjoyed, but I don't remember much else of interest to tourists in that area. But your interests might differ from mine. The hotel looks likes its near two different subway lines, which would at least give you some options. Does your guidebook not have a good map? I would think you would benefit greatly from consulting one.

The subway it is an efficient means of getting around so as long as the sights you want to see are ok by subway, then as it is a "great hotel" then go with it. A quick look on google maps revealed that it is 21 mins by subway to Gyeongbokgung Palace - The major site in Seoul with a lot of other stuff close by. On that basis, I think it would be fine.

I did check the map but there is no substitute for advise from experience fellow travelers. Thanks again for your help.

You are welcome. One tip I found useful when travelling ten subway in Seoul was not just checking which stations you need but also which exits to take to get to the sights your are looking for. Saved a LOT of time!
