Pros: The staff was very courteous and helpful.
Cons: Just the cleanliness of the room.

Hotel New World I stayed in this hotel over this past weekend with a few friends and the room was decent. I mean, we had a "fun" time even trying to locate the hotel. The staff was very pleasant and helpful when it was time to check-in/out. The room wasn't too bad, I wanted a single bedroom and ended up getting a double. The only minor problems with the room were the cobwebs and hairs on the bed. Also, I was supposed to have a computer in my room, but all I got was the monitor and keyboard, lol. Those three things I mentioned were only small problems and did not hinder me from enjoying the room and the weekend. To me, what I paid for two nights wasn't too bad or expensive for staying in this hotel. Revise your review
An unfortunate choice of hotelPosted Nov 2, 2012 on Hotels.com
I did not enjoy my stay at all. The hotel is located in a part of Seoul that does not contain a single restaurant with an English menu. Not one of the drivers of the twenty taxis that I used was able to bring me to the hotel's doorstep. The walls of the bedroom are so thin that one hears every word spoken in the adjoining roo. There is no bathtub, and the drain of the sink gurgles noisily the whole night through. No breakfast or food of any sort is served. The people at the reception desk speak almost no English at all. The sole thing that I can say in the hotel's favor is that it is the first hotel that I have ever encountered that supplies a computer (with full internet access) in one's room - not merely a wi-fi connection for one's laptop - plus every other gadget conceivable. But the mattress is stone hard, the pillows are made of rocks and the towels are the size of table place-mats. Anyone choosing this hotel should expect to be disappointed. It was chosen for me solely because we were filming in the neighborhood and I wanted to be close to the set. Even so, the set was 3.7 km away. Seoul is a big big big place. Next time I'll pick a hotel in the Western-oriented Ee-tay-wan district.

Good location & very handy to public transportPosted Oct 31, 2012 on Hotels.com
Good location although difficult to find being in a back street. Found the bed and pillows to be too hard. Very acceptable overall based on price.

Desktop computer in room!Posted Oct 11, 2012
Pros: desktop computer with internet
Cons: no shower curtain
Location: From ICN, airport express to seoul station, transfer to line 4, one stop to Sookmyung, take exit 4.
Very close to subway line 4, exit 4 (one stop away from Seoul station), short walk down a narrow street away from busy street, very quiet to sleep at night. Awesome to have a desktop computer in the room with complimentary internet, very firm clean bed and linens. Has a tub but no shower curtain so beware of slippery wet floor. Stairway to room has uneven steps, some short, regular, and tall so pay attention! Excellent location, not fancy but safe. clean, and quiet. I would recommend this hotel, good value.

Very hard to find so if you are staying and don't speak Korean get a taxi, the number for hotel is not correct. This is a no frills hotel but with that said it is clean room and the air condtion works, and we have stayed in many others in Korea with no air and it is miserable in the summer. They speak very little english, so desk personal no help.

Neat 'n' cleanPosted Jun 23, 2012
Nice hotel just across from one of the the Army installations. Close to both line 1 and line 4 subway stations. Staff did accomodate us by holding our large suitcase for 2 days while we took a side trip. Mom more friendly than Pop. Korean locals very friendly and helpful to obviously lost Americans, especially "ka-tu-sa", Korean servicemen serving with the American Army. People to people we break down the barriers.
