We stayed four nights here. Booked a room with no window (it was really cheap). Get a window.....I think you really need a window to adjust circadian rhythms. The location was fabulous. The City Bus kiosk was across the street. Meyongdong, Meyongdong Cathedral, Insadong, gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Secret Garden were all within an easy walking distance.

I stayed at this hotel on a visit to Seoul about 10 years ago, and just returned for another visit. As some people mentioned, the property is rather old, but everything in the room worked fairly well, and it's a good value for the price, especially considering the excellent location right in the heart of the city center, and just...

Appears to be an old property, rooms cramped for space. Nothing like a fancy boutique or a standard business hotel. I am 6 feets and surprisingly could not use the toilet of a room primarily assigned due to space, then got promptly changed on complaint. Being a vegetarian, finding an indian restaurant just steps away was a pro.. A very... More

Ive arranged the bookings for my in-laws and i cannot say Ive had a hard time asking for changes. For instance, ive originally booked a double bed for 3 (family says they would "fit") & upon arrival with all the luggage, they could not fit comfortably. I requested an upgrade and was more than willing to pay extra since it... More

I stayed in 2 Best Western hotels in Seoul, this one and Kukdo which I had the review done too. Personally I gave 4 stars to Kukdo and 3 to this one. Location wise I think Kukdo is better in terms of less walking distance to the subway as well as the stop of the airport bus. The only plus... More

Half mile south and great markets there. Staff very helpful but rooms with no view. Korean Airlines Limousine to... More

New Soul Hotel is well located and well staffed. The front desk and the service staff are absolutely top notch: attentive, friendly, and very helpful, and the room was very clean. The hotel is very well located right next to Seoul Financial Center (which contains an upscale mall), and only a few minute walk from Gyeongbokgung Plaze, multitude of international... More

This hotel was perfect - the location, the staff, the accommodations. Room was big. Hotel offers rooms with a view and without a view meaning with or without a window. I had a room with a window and it was worth the extra money,

If you want to save money and walk to various historical sites or use the subway lightly, this hotel is centrally located. It is a good hotel for the average guest, but they are not reward their own hotel chain's diamond members. In fact, when asked for a potential upgrade since I was a diamond member, I was told it...

Contratry to some comments regarding location and services, I found this hotel is so closed to Subway Line 1 City Hall station (Exit 4). And it is just one-block from main road, taking taxi will not be a problem to reach the hotel. Hotel staff are all friendly and willing to help. I speak English and I had no problem... More
