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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

The place is located very close to KINTEX, about a 10 min walk. Does not have a restaurant, although there are plenty of them close by. Language is an issue, as most people don't speak English, including the hotel staff. However the staff were courteous and helpful. There is no vegetarian restaurant nearby.

The location is convenient and staff are very helpful. They will walk an extra mile for guests. We lost our mobile phone in the taxi on the way to the Seoul Tower. We called the reception and the staff tracked down the taxi driver for us. She paid the taxi driver on our behalf so that he would bring the...

“All rooms are far from the main street so traffic isn't a problem, my room faced the American barracks basketball court which one night had 2-3 guys playing until really late, but closing the window would suffice. All rooms should be ok, though I do believe smoking is permitted in some, so maybe that might be a bother.”
