Profile: Namdaemun

Profile: Namdaemun

Namdaemun is situated in Jung-gu in Seoul’s city center, and is a bustling hub for tourists and locals alike. The 24-hour Namdaemun Market is filled with thousands of shops and vendors, and is a great place to pick up anything from discounted electronics to handicrafts. Make sure to venture down Galchi Jorim Alley to sample some braised scabbardfish with white radish.

The 14th-century Namdaemun gate was one of 8 gates that encircled the walled city, and is considered a national treasure. It’s located right across from the market, and highlights Seoul’s unique merging of the ancient with the ultra-modern.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Clean and nice room. Bathroom with worm toilet seat :-) excellent especially in winter time. 24 hours grocery store downstairs. If you like to have breakfast in the hotel they have good cooperating restaurant on 15th floor. Staff nice but not to friendly but I think it is part of Korean culture. Very good location. You can walk around to see the main attractions.

    The hotel is at a PERFECT location. You can easily find places to eat. High attraction areas are within walking distance (5-10km), city hall is just next to you.

    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.

  • 8.0.Very good

    It was great since it was an easy walk to the main part of Myeongdong! It's also a quick walk to Gyeongbokgung Palace and not far from a few different subway stops. It's also right next to Cheonggyecheon Stream which was decorated for Christmas so it was beautiful! But be aware that on Saturday there are a lot of political demonstrations right outside since the hotel is right next to city hall. It was fine, but noisy if you're at the hotel during the day. Plus the water pipes are quite loud so you're going to hear a lot of water running all throughout the day and night. That didn't wholly impede my experience but it was just a different noise to get used to as I fell asleep (which was fine by me since I like some noise to fall asleep to!).
