    Lonely Planet review

    New Kukje is anything but new, and the rooms are as tired-looking and old-­fashioned as the lobby. The hotel is popular with Japanese tour groups, who presumably receive discounts, and there’s a certain staying-at-gran’s ambience. Steam in the sauna or sample a buffet spread, but the only reason to stay here is its location – within spitting distance of City Hall’s backside.

    Our independent authors have visited New Kukje Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Myeong-dong, Namsan & Itaewon.

    New Kukje Hotel enjoys a great location just 300 metres from Gwanghwamun Subway Station (line no. 5) and a 2-minute walk from Seoul Cityhall. The hotel offers pampering massage services, a sauna and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.

    The rooms at Hotel New Kukje are elegantly decorated and well equipped with a flat-screen TV, a fridge and a writing desk. They have comfortable seating areas and an en suite bathroom with a bathtub and free toiletries. All rooms are non-smoking, while a designated smoking area is available on every floor.

    Myeongdong and Namdaemun markets are located just a 5-minute walk away. It takes a 9-minute walk from the hotel to Insa-dong where guests will find traditional Korean restaurants and shops, as well as, small art museums.

    On the 15th floor, the Sky Lounge restaurant offers a continental breakfast buffet. It features an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner. Alternatively, there are several dining and entertainment options around the hotel. There is a 24-hour convenience store on site.
