      Amazing staff, terrific hotel -- like a second home.”

      Whether for business or pleasure, I have been a frequent guest at New Kukje Hotel since 2012. The location is very convenient; the hotel is situated near many sights and attractions, including Gwanghwamun, Deoksugung, Cheongyecheon, Myeongdong, Insadong, and Dongdaemun. These locales are either within walking distance or only a short trip via bus or subway. As a bookworm, I appreciate the fact that the hotel is located in close proximity to two large bookstores -- Kyobo and YP Books. Facilities are superb; rooms are comfortable, clean and tidy, and meals at the restaurant are delicious. The view from the rooftop is also nice (a good place to take photos). A convenience store (GS 25) is located next to the hotel; actually you can enter from the 1F of the hotel, which is convenient whenever I feel like having a midnight snack. The staff is definitely this hotel's strongest point ... I have nothing but good things to say about them, be it the front desk staff, the doorman, housekeeping staff, or restaurant staff. Not only do they do their jobs effectively and efficiently, they do so always with warm smiles on their faces. The staff at this hotel is the epitome of professionalism -- especially the general manager Mr. J.K. Hur, and Ms. J.A. Kim and the other front desk staff, all of whom are either bilingual or multilingual (Korean, Japanese, Chinese, English ... very impressive!) and exhibit a high degree of competency and professionalism. Over the years, it has been a pleasure to see the front desk staff -- new and veteran staff members alike -- and be greeted by their warm smiles, friendly service, and familial hospitality each time I check into the hotel. In brief, I've stayed in many hotels in Korea, and none of them compare to the quality of service I have received at New Kukje Hotel over the past 5 years, which is why NKH is always my first choice whenever I am in Seoul for work or vacation. To anyone traveling to Seoul for business or pleasure, I highly recomme

      Location, value, comfort

      I have visited this area of Seoul several times in the past, and selected the New Kukje Hotel to save a little money over the place I've stayed previously. I found the hotel to be very nice and an excellent value. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet, a little small but perfectly fine if one's not spending a lot of time in it. The location is great--near many of Seoul's major attractions (the palaces, many museums, Insadong, the Myeong-Dong shopping area are all within pretty easy walking distance). It's within a couple hundred meters of one of the exits for the Euljiro-1ga and City Hall metro stops. Highly recommended.

      My husband and I are travellers and we found New Kukje a very nice hotel, it caters to every customers needs. The size of the room was surprisingly big for Korean sized rooms. The location was perfect, perfect, perfect. Very centrally located. We barely rode the train as everything is in 10-15 mins of walking distance. Cheongyecheon stream is just outside, airport shuttle across the road (koreana hotel), city hop on-off tours just across as well, coffee shop and convenience store in the hotel, and lots of coffee shops just outside inc starbucks. walking distance to:nandaemun market, myeongdong shopping center, korean restaurants area in jongno, gwanghamun square, gyeongbokgung, deoksugung palace, city hall. Unbelievable coffee shops, 3 in every block. There's sfc mall just beside it for fancy dining. Must stay in this hotel when you get to Seoul. Awesome price as well considering where its located.

Close to City Hall and lots of stuff to do around this area. Sightseeing including palaces and close to Myeondong shopping area. Close to the subway station which allowed for easy access to places all over Seoul. Lots of places to eat around here too which was a plus. On the first floor of the hotel, there was a coffee shop and convenience store. I would definitely stay here again.

      I chose to stay at this hotel becasue the price for a Double room was at such a great value even beating Guest House prices in myeongdong where i usually stay so i thought a Hotel .. Why not ... I've experienced this in other hotels before and the laundry Pricing is a JOKE !! BUT I was so happy when i inquired about laundry at the front desk only to be told they have a coin laundry now, Well done New Kukje for implementing a Coin Laundry with Washing Machines and Dryers :) saved my life The Double room was spacious and clean and the shower's water pressure was good. The room it self was awesome but the decor was in need updating ie the wall paper was bulging but none of that mattered really, it was only superficial as the room space and cleanness was great .. also BIG thank you to the cleaning lady who always met me with a smile every day i bumped in to her .. hope you enjoyed the biscuits i left you :P Very polite reception staff and great English communication..

My students expressed to me their satisfaction with the hotel rooms, facilities, and the hospitality of the hotel staff. One of my students even said that he would recommend the hotel to his family should they visit Korea in the near future.

      I have stayed at New Kukje three times and I have to say it never disappoints me. The staff is always friendly, attentive and check-in/check out is always smooth. The room was large, bed comfortable with WIFI, air conditioning and a decent sized bathroom. Hotel close to Gwanghwamun Square and subway station; also close to City Hall subway station. Quick taxi ride to Myeongdong shopping area, Namsan Tower and a few palaces. Hotel staff allowed me to hold my bag after check-out so I could tour the city. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is a great price for the area and probably just as nice as the other luxury hotels in the area at half the cost.

      Very near City Hall Metro Station”

      From Incheon Airport, you can either use the shuttle service (bus no.6701) or via subway and alight at City Hall Station (green line) exit 4. Walk straight from the exit and the hotel can be seen on the right side. The hotel is centrally located, near Gwanghamun Square and 3 subway stops to Myeong-dong. It has a 24 hr convenience store at the G/F. Rooms are mid sized. 2 mid-sized luggages can be opened comfortably and a walk space is still available. The pillows are soft but the bed is quite on the hard side. Towels are new. 😊 Needs a little cleaning on the side table and lamp area. The dust can be seen from opening the bed lamp. Overall experience is happy and satisfied. Worth stay for mid budget travelers aiming for convenience.

Picked New Kukje hotel, stayed in the middle of the action, very convenient location, close to all kinds of transportation, cultural activities and exposure to some night life. The hotel is super clean, friendly staff and room design is very contemporary; loved all the features and amenities...definitely a good bang for your buck. I'll see you again SK, thanks.

      central location, quiet, complimentary bottled waters

      Centrally located and easy access to many tourist attractions by taxi. The most expensive taxi fare was abt 8500 krw during peak hours.Just 5 mins walk to Cityhall subway line 1, about 10mins to line 2. Take airport limousine and alight at Koreana hotel opposite New Kukje hotel. If you are facing Koreana hotel, pls turn right and you will come to a pedestrian crossing at the end of the road. If you turn left, you will come to an underground that will bring you opposite, but you hv to carry the luggages down and up the stairs. Booked a triple room, room size and bathroom size were good with good hot/cold shower. But beds and pillows were not very comfy. Cleanliness of room has to be improved as we found a cockroach one night. Complimentary bottled waters and hot/cold water dispensers outside lift areas is a plus point. There is a café and 24hrs convenience stall at lobby area, very convenient. Turn right when out of hotel, there is a Starbucks. Crossed the road after you passed Starbucks, there is another café called Angel-in-us coffee. Walked straight down, you will come to a whole stretch of small restaurants and eateries. All the way down and turn right again, you will come to Lotte duty free at Myeong-dong. You can ask for direction along the way, it isn’t that far, about 10-15 mins walk.

      Great location, fridge in room, convenience store in lobby, free bottled water, sparkling bathtub

      I was in Seoul on business for two nights and three days. This hotel was very conveniently located near the US and Japanese Embassies, and is close to the shopping areas in Myeong-dong (also very close to City Hall and the subway entrance). For the value, the room was great...comfy beds (but weird, hard pillows), a fridge with free bottled water, and a bathtub for relaxing at the end of the day. It was all very clean. Business wise, the free wireless is great. Very fast and there is no password required. It cut out a couple of times, but could be because there was a big snowstorm going on while I was there. I needed to print some documents but the hotel didn't have a business center, so an employee at the front desk printed them for my from my USB. The last day, they easily stored my luggage during my morning appointments. I would stay here again.

Hotel is just infront of the hotel (Koreana Hotel Bus stop), you just have to cross the road. if you have luggages take the pedestrian lane (stop light) nearby instead of taking the subway because it would be difficult to go up and down by the stairs with your luggages. good thing we took the pedestrian lane. no hassle. just a few steps walk to the hotel. 2. hotel is very near to the Metro subway stations (City Hall Station on the left side and Gwanghwamun Station on the right side) so it's very accessible, it's on the left side of the hotel. 3. there's a convenience store and a coffee shop on the hotel's ground floor. 4. hotel exterior and interior are nice. looks new. room is big and clean (we had standard twin room). a lot of space for luggages. you can move around your room. 5. daily supply of free bottled water and daily refill of toiletries and new towels everyday. 6. heater is perfectly working. 7. shower is strong and the heater is fine. 8. lots of restaurants around the hotel. 9. there are tourists destination nearby. (gwanghwamun, deoksugung, lotte) 10. there's a tourist information stall nearby (right side outside the hotel). anything you want to know, you may ask them and they will guide you willingly. 11. you can leave your luggages at the concierge if you arrived early or leaving early to tour arou d the city. 12. Bus stop for Seoul City Tour Bus is just in front of the hotel across the street. 13. there's an underground mall with restaurants very near the hotel (on the right side)
