3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2007

The New Boolim Hotel is conveniently located near the Cheongnyangni train station and the corresponding subway station. The Airport Limousine also stops at this station.

-The staff is helpful and speaks some English.
-It is clean, modern, and convenient.
-There is a free internet access in the lobby.
-It has its own restaurant, but we didn't try it.
-It has a convenience store just in front of the hotel entrance, and a cafe next door.
-There are loads of food stands at Cheongnyangni station square, which sell a whole range of good and cheap Korean snacks.

The only problem of that hotel: the price.

Let me mention 2 points about that:
- It's not that the hotel rate is really high, but there are loads of other accommodation possibilities in Seoul, which can be as clean and as convenient as the New Boolim Hotel, but at a better rate.
- The displayed price is a bit too high (109'000 Won = 117 US$), and it is a much better bargain to book through an agency or a website.
We booked through HotelClub and only paid 49 US$ (= 45'000 Won).
