I generally like this area of Seoul - it's in the center of Gwanghwamun's financial district and a stone's throw away from Gyeongbuk Palace, Samcheongdong, Bukchon village, Seochon. Although I felt that it still wasn't as central as the Namdaemun area and required abit of walking to get to the Myeongdong area. City Hall station (Line 1 exit no. 4)...

New Kukje hotel An affordable hotel very nicely located near the Gyeongbok Royal Palace and walking distance from Myeong Dong, Seoul’s shopping mecca, with many coffee shops and restaurants in the immediate surroundings. The airport bus stops in front of the hotel and the City Hall train station is only a few hundred meters away. Our standard room on the...

I was impressed by this choice. Location was really great, price very decent, and a very good quality hotel. Other comments: My room was without vindows and without aircondition - only heater. So even though it was minus 5 degrees outside it was quite hot during the night and I borrowed a fan. I can only fear how this would...

The hotel is located near the City Hall Station and is directly in front of the airport bus station (I recommend taking the airport bus if you have luggage with you) which makes it very accessible. There is also a convenient store at the ground floor. There area also must-see sites nearby, practically walking distance-- Deoksugung Palace, Gyeongbukgung Palace, Cheonggyedeon...

We stay 2 nights. They took luggage before check-in time and helped a lot for any info we needed. Room and bathroom very clean, way bigger than expected. Hotel position is perfect if you want to visit central Seoul.

I highly recommend this Hotel for it's cleanliness and location. It's located near to most of the tourist spots in Seoul. Aside from that, the staffs are also friendly and are eloquent in english language. They're also very much attentive to the needs of their customers. The room that we've stayed at is spacious in an affordable price.

The airport bus stops in front of the hotel and it is close to the City Hall subway station. However the hotel is quite outdated but it provides the basic stuff. Room is relatively large and clean. There are a coffee shop and convenience shop just next to the hotel. Meanwhile, not many taxi drivers seemed to know this hotel...
