Warm Floors

location was the priority for us, and it was great. staff very helpful. free wifi!
We very much enjoyed oit stay at hotel new world, however a few things were annoying. For instance, the shower not having a curtain was incredibly annoying. The floor got so wet. It sounds left for sure, but it's just an easily fixable thing. The floors are heated - which is nice, up until you're trying to sleep, and the room temperature actually is uncomfortable, and your mouth gets incredibly dry. We had to leave the room window open the entire stay, and as we're from a hot country, you can imagine how warm the room was. The staff were good, though only a couple with workable English. Also, including a map for visitors - particularly from the nearby station (Sookmeyoung Women's University -exit 5)

Great for the price

Location, price,Service
Service was good, they helped me with taxi's and tours. Didn't stay in the room much, but it was clean. Location is just a short taxi ride to most places.

The room smelt really horrible.

It was located close to where I needed to be early the next morning and was also close to the subway.

convenient and comfortable stay

near to subway, friendly staff, budget hotel
It was good, friendly staff, and convenient as it is very near to a subway. And it is just one station away from seoul station. The only bad thing is that the room is too small, hardly able to move if you have big luggage. however, the bathroom is as big as the room. So in exchange you will have comfortable shower but i rather have bigger room instead. Overall, it was a comfortable night

Very clean and well located

Accessability, price and staff
The stay was brief, part of a visit to Seoul. The hotel is small but clean and comfortable and within walking distance to the subway and bus stop and a few minutes taxi ride to Namdemun, Seoul station, Yongsan Station, National war memorial, National museum, Itaewon among other places. For a quick jaunt to Seoul on a budget the hotel was a good deal compared to other hotels in the area.

close to Camp Kim

Staff, location and cost
Once we had resolved that we had requested a non-smoking room and were provided with room change staff were very helpful.It is an average hotel in terms of facilities. Best part of hotel for us was its proximity to Camp KIm as our DMZ tour started from there at 7.30 am and we did not want to be late.
