Best Western opens Seoul hotel

Best Western Premier Hotel Kukdo has opened the doors to its ultramodern mid-rise hotel in the center of Seoul’s shopping district.

The hotel’s contemporary minimalist design with crisp lines, earth-tone colors and soft textures exudes a cosmopolitan flair from its spacious lobby to all 295 rooms, each with a picture-window view of the mountains, ocean or gulf.

Inside the rooms, guests are greeted by 23-inch televisions with cable or satellite connections and movie channels, high-speed Internet access and bathrooms with electronically controlled bidets. Wooden furnishings and floors detail the simple, comfortable interiors of the hotel’s five suites, 104 double rooms, 171 twins and 15 half-twins. Best Western Premier Hotel Kukdo has also reserved 100 non-smoking rooms and prepared five rooms for the physically challenged.
