New Seoul Hotel, Seoul
Never come back
We stayed at this hotel during the Chinese New Year holiday and they provided very inadequate services during the holidays. No extra blankets and no extra buttle water when asked for them. The water pressure was very poor and no hot water when showering for 3 days. How could the hotel guest, with the temperature below 0 degrees outside, had to take shower with cold water. When asked to talk to the manager, the hotel manager was on vacation and no other managers were on duty. There is room for improvement in the English level of their housekeeping employees, using a online translator app to serve the guest was ridiculous. All in all, the accommodation was unpleasant and will not stay in this hotel again.

Fair Hotel for a Fair Price
The hotel was "okay." Probably nice back in the day, but is due for renovation. Great location, so prime candidate to be taken over by major hotel chain. Complete remodeling should be the first step. If current owners remain, I don't see them spending the money to compete with the major chains. We stayed two nights... I would not want to stay longer.

Nice location, near to many attractions. The only thing I didn't like was that wifi connection was not really good. But overall really nice hotel and I would stay there again.
