Not a 3 star hotel, but it has really good localisation near underground and Seul Railway Station is 15 minutes walk from hotel so u can get there by your foot from train (Ktx or arex). It is not hard to find as others say. This is quite Good choice for stay in Seoul.

This is not a fancy luxury hotel but it is clean friendly and quite well located. Although difficult to find in the first place the location is quite good, close to the amenities the subway and the airport coach service. I normally stay in Itaewon but tried this as my usual places were full. I would go back again for... More

There must be a very good reason for anyone who want to stay for 4 nights and want to return in future. The reason is clear; comfortable beds and rooms, accessible location and convenient, free and fast wifi, refrigerator, water and juice and most of all, staff that go extra miles to make one's stay unforgettable! Ms Cho Sun-Min and... More

I only stayed in this hotel because the OTA(I don’t bother to mention its name) told me that my previously booked and prepaid hotel has sold out! So yes, this is a back up. We stayed here for four nights. The room is quite small; we even had difficulty when we tried to open our suitcase. What’s worse, the linen... More

I booked this hotel due to its close proximity to Yongsan Station. I booked it through Agoda for 3 nights. It seemed like all the hotels were sold out in that area aside from this one and some guest houses which I do not stay in. It was very hard for my taxi driver to find the hotel even with... More

On a recent trip to Seoul I was looking for a hotel near Camp Kim, the US military base for my tour of the DMZ via the United Service Organization (USO). I wanted something close to the USO's headquarters (across from Camp Kim) and Itaewon for the weekend. I found Hotel New World via an internet search and reserved two... More
