Whenever I come to Seoul for business, I prefer to stay at the Koreana. Why? 1. Staff are so pleasant and helpful 2. Rooms are very comfortable and large compared to other higher rated Seoul hotels. 3. Western Omelets cooked to my preference in the breakfast restaurant. 4. Western TV stations (a few for news and sports) in my hotel... More

Major tourist attraction like the royal palace, seoul station, myeongdong shopping street, and many other at really within walking distance. Access to the subway line also can't get easier, the nearest station is city hall station, go to exit #3 and... More

We spent 2 nights in Koreana Hotel and overall experience is very good. I am very satisfied with the location of the hotel. It is next to the "City Hall" Metro station. From airport you can take the express train to Seoul Station and switch to metro and go only 1 station. It is pretty easy. It is also close... More

Stayed 4 nights there for family vacation. Overall strategic location with very high speed broadband. It is an old hotel with outdated furniture. The bathroom not maintained well and yellowish. The bath towels were old. No toothbrush provided. It is time to renovate to stay competitive.

I think I may have stayed at this hotel before over the decades. But it isn't getting any younger. Service is great - requests to the front desk were addressed with remarkable speed, but they really need to do a deep cleaning of room carpets (or better, replace them at least once a decade, say). The bed is also way... More

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.
