Great Hotel Location for Seoul
The New Kukje Hotel is in a great location near City Hall with easy access to subways and buses and near main shopping and attractions such as Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Village, Insadong Market, Myeondong Market, and the Namdaemun Market. We had 2 double beds for 4 people and we had a fairly large room with a small sitting area in front of the TV. Beds were comfortable. There is a convenience store in the hotel and a nearby Starbucks.

Great Staff, Great location, older hotel
Staff was amazingly helpful and they all seem to speak English. There is a 24 store in the hotel (I did not use it, but nice in case you arrive late). The nearby airport shuttle stop made this easy, although the shuttle driver misdirected me and I was a bit confused at first. So be sure to have a copy of the address & map with you. The hotel is not in excellent condition - it is older and it shows - but the location and the staff made up for this.

Short stay in Seoul
Great hotel, very near to main tourist sights in Seoul and subway stations. Room was large and spacious, so we had a very comfortable stay. Breakfast was ok, wifi worked well. There is a convenience store in the hotel, which was great for picking up supplies. Our only complaint was that we kept getting static electricity when opening doors and getting in the lift, etc.

Good, reasonable room with pleasant service.
Very helpful staff with a good-sized room. Breakfast wasn't great but certainly sufficient. I would stay here again. Location is excellent but there may be demos on the weekends which will be noisy during the day.

Excellent location
Our first visit to Seoul was made more memorable by staying at New Kukje Hotel. Airport bus 6701 brought us to the hotel in 80 minutes comfortably. We walked to most of the places like Myeongdong, palaces, Insa-dong, or even Dongdaemun if you wanted to. The plaza was 5 minutes walk away and there were always some exhibitions, concerts happening which added fun to the trip. Room was clean and the size was decent. The only thing you need to be aware of is the activity happening next to the hotel. During our stay, they had protest and the noise level was quite high. If you are after a very quiet location, NewKukje is definitely not your choice. However, if you don’t mind the noise, I would highly recommend this Hotel. I will stay at this hotel if I come to visit Seoul again.

Caters to international travelers
We only stayed one night. This hotel seems to cater to international travelers - the towels were on the large size compared to the other hotels we stayed on. The bed was comfortable. We did not try the breakfast. The staff was great, we checked out early in the morning and that was quick and easy. The hotel is also on an airport limousine (bus) route, making getting to the airport easy.

Good clean and great location
This hotel is conveniently located near places of tourist interest, subway station, bus stops, shopping centers, street markets, landmarks sites, fast food and restaurants are all at a walking distance. The hotel offers WIFI free of charge, the lobby is small but has a restaurant, a convenience store, a laundry mat, and coffee shop next to it. Breakfast is offered between 7 to 10.30 a.m. for an additional charge. Customer service at the reception was good, helpful and spoke English, however, don't expect anyone else to speak English outside the hotel reception people, but to be fair to this hotel English is not widely spoken in Korea. Anyhow, the rooms are standard size for Asia, the hotel rooms, hallways, elevator are well kept, our room and bath was clean and a daily two small bottles of water were provided for free. The place around and about feels safe and clean. I think the best thing about this hotel is the location and overall the hotel is nice and we have no complaints, we were pleased with the service and the overall experience.

Poor 2.0
Do NOT use Bathroom Flush Toilet
Lack maintenance in Bathroom Flush Toilet We have suffered a disgusting experience of flush toilet congestion after using in the morning (8 am). The overflow of poo/crap inside the bathroom made us uncomfortable. The hotel could not accommodate to exchange any room immediately instead we were running between two rooms at different floors. All these incidents totally wasted us hours before going out for sightseeing. Poor room services: No face towel on the next day
