4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

In rating this hotel, I would give its amazing location and very responsive service 5 stars, while the rooms would squarely land in the 3-star category. I have stayed at this hotel twice, primarily because of its stellar location, which is central and ideally positioned for visiting many of Seoul's key tourist spots. While this hotel is central, it is... More

My daughter and I stayed 5 nights at this modern hotel. Rooms were clean (we were on the 12th floor) and well maintained. Location - close to City Hall - was excellent. You can easily walk to a number of key locations in Seoul (e.g. Myeong-dong, two of the palaces, art museum, history museum, etc. Close to the subway (1... More

This hotel is conveniently located near the City Hall metro station and is convenient for exploring the area around Gyeongbokgung Palace. A Starbucks is across the street from this hotel. My room was small and did not have a window. I was exploring so it wasn't a big deal but I found that I wished I had a window so... More

Easy to get to from Inchon via bus 6701. Also very close to City Hall subway line - exit #4. Many restaurants / shops nearby . Near Lotte department store and the Myongdong area too. Make sure to visit Myongdong street food area which is a feast for the senses

The location of this hotel is very convenient to two shopping districts: Namdaemun and Myongdung...if you can find it. Our cab driver took us to the Westin. The hotel goes by New Seoul Hotel not Best Western. It is also very close to City Hall and Gwanghwamun Palace. The valet outside was a jerk though. The hotel has about 8... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks. Location is perfect, walking distance to lots of sites and shops. Room was very dark even my room had a small window and lots of lighting, but still dark. Front staff were not really friendly and not a good customer service. Bathrooms were great, very clean and bright.

Stayed here for 10 days. Hotel was in an excellent location. Close to two metro lines, big square with a green area for hanging out and the "Blue House". Airport shuttle was right out on the main road. Breakfast was excellent, good mix of asian and American style. Of course rooms were excellent and individual room WiFi. Only complaint was... More

To get to the hotel takes a little figuring out. But, once there, the front desk staff were very polite and welcoming. And very helpful. The wifi was great and pretty fast. The cleaning staff were great as well. The room was clean and small. But I was only there for two nights and only slept there and showered so... More

Location, location, location !!! This hotel is within walking distance of most tourist attractions - be it the palaces, or cable car ride or night market streets. If you're not the walking types, then you can bike around or use the MRT or even taxis, it's cheap. Plus there's a bus service (KAL limousine) that brings you from the airport... More
