Seoul Station (Old B.D.), Seoul

(3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Seoul’s first subway station, Seoul Station (Old B.D.) serves as a multicultural space that features exhibitions, performances, seminars, and other events. In the 1920s, during Japanese colonial rule, a Tokyo professor, Tsukamoto Yasushi, designed the old station with a domed roof in a European style. The station was severely damaged in the Korean War, and the annexes to the north and to the south were added after the fighting finished. It closed down in 2004, after the construction of a new station, but reopened with its new purpose in 2011.

  • Good for the low-budget single traveler. The rooms are like monk's cells, but they are air-conditioned and contain a TV and a private bath with shower. The only downside is that the shower is not in a separate stall, so everything gets wet, but that is not unusual for low-budget accommodations in Asia. It is run by two friendly women. The breakfast is included but nothing special, and if you don't like the idea of Korean hot dogs for breakfast, you can get by with cereal. The best feature is the location, literally across the street from Seoul Station (go toward the Hilton) and dozens of buses, including the bus to Incheon Airport, and the subway.
  • Good for 1-2 nights
