10-15 mins walk from street markets. On busy road but no roadnoise. Always good prices. Inchon airport bus stops outside. Restaurant average. Staff average. Weekend events on the road outside. Aircon a bit suspect

Great location, but get with the modern day times! If these guys want any of the business / middle tier tourist population, it's obvious the building's old, but if there's one thing they need to improve ASAP!, they absolutely have to improve internet speed AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Too slow!!! in comparison to vast majority of alternatives.

The hotel is perfectly located in a very cetrnal location. Many sites in a walking distance and two subway stations are just a few steps away. Also the KAL bus to/from Incheon airport stops next to the hotel. I stayed in a "business twin" room on the 12th floor. The room was very spacious with a comfortable bed and nice... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Koreana as part of a UKTI Delegation (UKTI chose the hotel). It is located in the financial district, and 5 minutes walk from the British Embassy. The hotel itself is well appointed, although it feels slightl dated; the rooms are reasonably spacious with a bathroom containing a tub and a separate shower. A word of... More

Deep bath soaked my stiff shoulder and leg. This property is totally Non-Smoking. One thing we dissapointed was a house keeper. On... More

This is about a 40 minute taxi ride from Gimpo Airport. Located in nice area with plenty of restaurants. You do not notice the age of the hotel until you enter your room. Carpet is old and has plenty of cigarette burns. Room has flat screen, Wi-Fi (very slow to connect), mini bar, work desk, central air, plenty of hot... More

Stayed on business and was working across the street at Seoul Finance Center. PROS Airport Shuttle goes directly to the Hotel - it's the first stop on the route into Seoul and the last stop out from Seoul and takes about 1hr. Very easy to get to and from Incheon. 16,000 KRW (17 USD) Crossing the street to where SFC... More

The Hotel is nice , clean and very close to the business district. While everything was good, the only complaint we had was , they did not allow early checkin although the same was requested in the booking. They finally gave a room but partially charged for it. Would definitely come back if they are a little flexible !!

I stayed only one night at this hotel. It was comfortable and met my needs. The free breakfast and happy hour food and drink were nice perks to go along with the executive room. Although the room wasn't huge, it worked out fine for me. I didn't care much for the small bathroom, but for one night it didn't matter.... More
