Location is great as it's near City Hall station. However, this is a very old hotel and have the musty smell that is hard to get rid off when you enter the lobby. We stayed 2 times pre and post travelling to other cities in Korea. 1st time we got the corner room, where the bathroom is only separated by...

Having arrived from china and the obscene luxury hotels there try to radiate, this place was a bit of a shock. But in all honesty it's a perfectly fine mid-range hotel that wouldn't feel out of place in Europe or America. The room is fairly large, though not large enough for a chair to sit in (a major hotel pet...

The New Seoul Best Western is very conveniently located close to transportation and downtown sightseeing. It is about four blocks away from the City Hall subway station and easy walking distance to the Gyeonbokgung and Deosugung Palaces. There is a shuttle bus direct to the airport (separate fare) one block away. The rooms were clean and comfortable, decorated in a...

Stayed one night. Even with the construction going on next to the hotel, didn't hear much outdoor noise. Comfortable bed, and clean room. The subway was very near by the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

I don't recommend this hotel cause it's not worth a money at all. It looks so cheap if you go into the room, you'll know. So I'm telling you don't book this hotel. Just book the other best western hotel chain. Smells like cigarette. Well the good thing was the staff was very friendly.
