Recent guest reviews

About 3mins walk to the nearest train station line 4. Big bathroom. I get room with view of Namsan Tower. Free water refill and black coffee at reception. Good wifi reception in room. Furniture kinda dusty. Since the hotel opposite basketball court, sometimes noisy when people playing at night.

Located 2 minute walk away from a subway station and within walking distance of the Korea War Museum and Itaewon. The room was large, with modern cable TV and fast Wifi. The bed was rock solid!! The bathroom was quite old. There are plenty of bars and restaurants located around the hotel.

This place isn't over the top nice, but for what you pay you get a decent place. WiFi was strong, bathroom spacious, stalked with shampoos and conditioners, flip flops and the ac unit was stellar. The staff was helpful, especially the one that spoke English. Location was prefect with tons of food options around.

The room was a bit small but the bathroom was quite spacious with shampoos and shower gels. There's a computer in my room but I didn't use it. Strong free wifi. The room was clean. Hallway was narrow and a bit dark. Great location! You could walk to Myeongdong. There were many restaurants and stores around. The hotel was in a small alley so many taxi drivers found it difficult to find.

Great location and the walk outside at time is very crowded. The place was clean and service was good. Some of the front desk staff seemed uncomfortable speaking English. Some employees seemed more friendly than others. Recommend for a short stay.

Good Location And You Can Find The Convenience Store,Fast Food Restaurant And Local Korean Restaurant Nearby The Hotel.Room Was Clean,Wifi Very Fast And Basic Toiletries Are Provided...Hotel Staff Very Helpful!

I spent two nights in this hotel. The room was small but it was very clean. Wifi was available in the room and it was pretty fast. The hotel did not offer breakfast so we had to go find food both days but there is a convenience store just around the corner. No microwave but there was a frig. Easy access to the transit buses and it's a 10min walk from Seoul Station as well. Pretty good deal for two beds. There is an extra occupant charge depending on the age of accompanying children. The staff was nice. Overall good experience.

Decently priced, well under many others, well located, good service, what more can you ask for? Pros: - Really fast wifi - Comfortable room, my room was quite big and not hard to move around at all as other reviews mentioned - Friendly staff, only 1 woman spoke English but she was helpful and it never really was an issue - Heated floor, big tv and desktop PC all in the room - Location is a 2 minute walk from a metro stop, multiple convenience stores, a wealth of local restaurants and 3 American chains Cons: - Neighborhood LOOKS kinda run down as does the hotel, but inside it isn't. It's old but not in a bad way. - AC didn't seem to work. It was kinda cold out so it didn't bother me but the first day I got there I found the heated floors made the room a bit hot and I couldn't get the AC to work - Power outlets were a bit scarce

Rooms are quite small, difficult to move around. Only 1 convenience outlet. Free wi-fi and water. One staff was rude when we requested for additional water. For the price we paid, it did not meet my expectations. There is convenience store nearby.

when we arrived, we were lost. as we cannot find the hotel signage. anyhow we still managed to find the hotel. :) very near to the U.S army residential area. - The hotel new world is not bad, it is very clean even though small. - I like their receptionists very helpful and very friendly. :) - The location is not bad at all. it takes around less than 5 mins of walk to the subway station, as we need to go to Itaewon to look for halal food. :) overall, it is not bad at all. ;)
