Location is perfact to access to Gyungok palace and Duksugung. You can visit to City hall and Cheonggye Eco--Streem, Namdaemun Market. The room is old and carpet makes feel a little bit uncomfortable, however it is spacious.

It was impossible to set temperature in my room, and on the first night I could hardly sleep due to the heat. In the morning I went to the front desk, made my complaint and the receptionist was slightly, but undoubtably smiling on my complaint. This is fully unacceptable and it left a bad memory in me, even if I... More

Hotel location is great. Right near city hall. Rooms were a bit outdated and beds were "hard" for Western standards. Service was on par. However, considering the price, I'd stay here again. If you want to be in a party-area, this isn't the place to be. I think this hotel is designed for foreigners who have government business. Overall 4/5... More

The Koreana is very well located in the center of Seoul, its roughly 1 hour from Incheon International Airport it costs 65000 won by taxi but after a long flight from New Zealand the taxi was worth it, although the bus is very easy to catch and roughly half the price. There is plenty to see and do and the... More

Room as basic as possible. Clean and nice. All you need. Friendly staff, good service. Rooms not so sound-proof; the crying kid next room used to wake me up at night. Overpriced japanese restaurant also in the hotel. Most expensive dinner during my 5 days in Seoul. Why did i spend 70€ in a mediocre hotel-restaurant? Restaurant not recommended.

We enjoyed our stay at the Koreana. Its central downtown location makes it easy to walk to the historic palaces, city hall and museums. The rooms are very clean and the beds a are comfortable There is a great selection of foods to choose from for breakfast and they have several dining options for dinner.

The hotel is very conveniently located near most of the clients I usually visit when staying in Seoul. It is quiet, with reasonable room charge and suitable comfort. I will probably stay here again (it is now my fourth stay this year).

Staying in Seodaemun

Neighborhood 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.
