Strategically located in the heart of the city, this is very accessible to shop, eat, and visit tourist spots in Seoul even on foot! The famous Nandaemun and Myeongdong shopping areas are just...

A clean nice hotel near the city center. Do not expect a trendy hotel. You can find a good service, nice, clean and big rooms. Breakfast has a good choice. You can walk in 10 min to the city center and anjoy many nice place. There is a direct limusine bus from Incheon airport.

Spent 8 days and the Koreana and everything was perfect! The staff was so helpful, the rooms are also wired for US devices so no electric converter is needed. Walking distance to many tourist destinations.

I always stay at the Koreana during Seoul trips. The rooms are clean and the service staff are very helpful and pleasant from the moment you arrive at the front desk, eat at the restaurant, walk down the hallway and everywhere. I take the meal plan which includes the breakfast. They'll make western omelette if you ask for it!

The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Above all the staff was very courteous and... More
