Charim Guesthouse is consistently rated as one of the best guesthouses in Seoul. Located in Dongdaemun, this guesthouse is located in the fashion capital of Korea, next to all the discount and wholesale malls as well as the awesome Dongdaemun Design Plaza complex. The area is filled with famous old naengmyeon (cold noodle) restaurants as well. Stay here and you’ll also have easy access to three subway lines at Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station (Lines 2, 4, 5). Of course, like any good guesthouse, the hosts here are kind and extra helpful.
