The hotel is located near the City Hall Station and is directly in front of the airport bus station (I recommend taking the airport bus if you have luggage with you) which makes it very accessible. There is also a convenient store at the ground floor. There area also must-see sites nearby, practically walking distance-- Deoksugung Palace, Gyeongbukgung Palace, Cheonggyedeon...

We stay 2 nights. They took luggage before check-in time and helped a lot for any info we needed. Room and bathroom very clean, way bigger than expected. Hotel position is perfect if you want to visit central Seoul.

I highly recommend this Hotel for it's cleanliness and location. It's located near to most of the tourist spots in Seoul. Aside from that, the staffs are also friendly and are eloquent in english language. They're also very much attentive to the needs of their customers. The room that we've stayed at is spacious in an affordable price.

The airport bus stops in front of the hotel and it is close to the City Hall subway station. However the hotel is quite outdated but it provides the basic stuff. Room is relatively large and clean. There are a coffee shop and convenience shop just next to the hotel. Meanwhile, not many taxi drivers seemed to know this hotel...

The staff of New Kukje is welcoming, and language is never a barrier. The price is excellent for the superb location of the hotel, central to three major palaces and loads of restaurants. Finding transportation, if you don't want to walk, is never an issue. A 24-hour convenience store is in the lobby, and just about everything you could want...
