The Fraser Suites is a serviced apartment complex just steps away from Insa-dong’s main artery, putting the area’s many traditional restaurants and craft shops in easy reach.
Its one-bedroom units (₩200,000-300,000) are far more spacious than hotel rooms in a similar price range and are fully furnished with separate living, dining, kitchen, and bedroom areas. All feature a stylish, East-meets-West design theme and home-type amenities like microwaves, washing machines and dryers, china table sets, and refrigerators.
It also offers a business center, children’s playroom, sauna, indoor pool, and gymnasium on-site. The staff are friendly and happy to share information about the area’s attractions. Overall a great place that manages to feel like a proper “home away from home” in Seoul.
