Where to stay in Suwon

The accommodations in Suwon tend to lie in clusters throughout the city. Conveniently located for onward travel, one such group sits by the main train station, and includes basic hotels and luxury chains with commanding views of the downtown area. Look to the east of Highway 1 for another wide range of lodging choices, where the gridded streets pack in newer hotels and budget-friendly guesthouses, all close to the main urban sights and pleasant public parks.
