The best thing about this hotel is it's location. We used the KAL limousine service to and from the airport, it stops right outside the hotel. Our room was spacious, very clean and we had free wifi. The hotel is right next to City Hall and the underground train network and within easy walking distance of lots of places. The...

I stayed for four nights on business travel. The best thing about this hotel is the location. You can reach the hotel via the KAL Limousine Bus, which stops right in front of the hotel, or other public transportation. When I reached the hotel it was late at night, so I had to take the normal subway from the airport...

The Koreana was fine for a business trip. It is very centrally located, on a direct express bus-route from Incheon airport, close to Gyeongbokgung Palace, shopping districts and restaurants. It did feel as if it's a bit past its best with some shabbiness creeping into the decor and ageing systems that don't always work. The air-conditioning was a particular problem....

This hotel in the heart of Seoul, can't imagine better location. Very clean. Nice service. Large rooms. Inexpensive considering location. Negatives: when I asked why A/C doesn't work, the answer was, April is not a month for A/C. Strange, don't understand why if it's hot in a room.

Koreana hotel has a good location in the middle of the political center of Seoul with city hall and the Gyeongbokgung palace around the corner.

Neighbourhood Profile
Seodaemun
Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and historic buildings that are scattered throughout. Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or touring more historically somber sites such as Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong in particular is a beautiful place for a stroll in spring and autumn.
