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

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

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and it was splendid! We were upgraded to an executive room and this added to the thrill and excitement. 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...

BUT the things started to go worse several years ago. But still it was not that bad. Untill now when I felt like that's it. I'm not gonna stay... More
