    Value for money”

    We arrived very early in the hotel, I have requested for an early check in do that we can rest. The hotel agreed to charge us on an hourly basis. The location is very close to some tourist spots. You can walk to visit Gyeongbokgung Palace and Cheonggyecheon stream. Cityhall station subway is right across the hotel, this is also the pick up area if you are booking via Klook going to Everland. Cleaning lady made sure that our room is clean everyday. I surely recommend this place

    The Hotel is locates in the center of Seoul. Rooms are clean and spacious. But the building is old. We ordered the meal at night and they were not great at all. Overall, it’s a good hotel but for me , it’s not worth of price I paid.

    Great location near to City hall subway station. Also walking distance to 2 palaces and Gwanghwamun square. At the ground floor there’s also a convenience store connected to the hotel and next door there’s a Paul Bassett patisserie serving excellent coffee and pastries where we went for breakfast in the morning. The KAL limousine bus also stops right in front of the hotel so that was very helpful for getting to Incheon airport. Tickets can be bought from the reception.

    was bit struggling to find the Hotel name. You should find “조선일보; Joseonilbo” sign building when you are in Gwanghwamun Squire. Convenience to buy some food and drink (even beer) at 24 /7 convenience store in the ground floor.

    Nice Place”

    The location of the hotel is nice in a way but not as nice as it supposed to be. The location from Myeongdong which is the center of everything is a bit far so we took cab everytime are heading back. it is about 10-15 mins fast walking. For the hotel itself the room size is okay. suited for what we needed specially having an infant child. The hotel itself is clean and gave us no problem. The best thing about this hotel is that the Bus to Airport shuttle is just infront of the hotel.

    The place is just at the right distance to the busy streets of myeong-dong so you can enjoy your vacation away from the noisy streets. It's near the subway city hall station and seoul city tour bus that's why getting around is easy. There's also a 24 hour convenience store at the ground floor. The airport limousine bus stops right in front of the hotel, too.

    Location, location, location! Hotel is located in the heart of Seoul with numerous transportation options. It is conveniently located within walking distance to the most of the popular shopping and tourist attractions. There are bus stops right in front of the hotel and subway stations are near by. You could find taxis throughout the day. Hotel staffs are courteous and helpful. Rooms are well maintained but you see stains on the carpet and a few items in disrepair. There are fitness center and spa on "F" floor for guest use.

    Great location, safe hotel :) !!”

    The Koreana hotel is in the perfect location in Seoul, just walking distance quite literally from many of the city's highlights. There is delicious Korean Grill just a 10 minute walk (or 2 metro stops) away and Jongno. Also, some temples and a castle are very near as well as an old cathedral and city hall. A convenience store is connected to the hotel for simple shopping. The elevator requires a card to ascend to each floor, making the hotel a bit more secure as well. Our only peeve was the breakfast was not worth the over 20USD charge per person, and the Fitness Center was closed for the Mid Autumn Festival, or Korean New Year. A small gym was open on the top floor though. Still, I would definately, happily stay there again.

    The hotel is located in the city center right near City Hall station and Gwanghwamun. Waking distance to many attraction spots. 5 minutes walk to Gwanghwamun Sqaure which is connected to Gyeongbokgung Palace and connected to art street Samcheongdong Gill. Within 15 minutes walk to Myeongdong Shopping Street. And you can get the train easily to anywhere you want. Hotel provides everything you need, nice professional staffs. The Limousine Bus stop is just right in front of the hotel. We had a chance to stay in both room types Standard Twin and Business Queen. Business Queen type is much nicer.

    The staff were very courteous at all times. I chose an Executive King room, and looking back because it rained most of my time in Seoul, the lounge access accompanying the room was a godsend. I could invite a guest over and have some chitchat over little bites and drinks. The hotel is also very close to transportation linking the city and the city's many historical and tourist spots. Definitely booking with Koreana Hotel again when I come back!

    Good, old hotel in the center of Seoul”

    From my experience, this hotel is a typical old hotel with dignity (it's indeed opened since 1970s). It has a great location, as Namdaemun, Deoksugung Palace, Gyeongbokgung Palace, and Cheonggyecheon are within walking distance. The staffs were great as well, showing good initiative and efficient manner in handling the guest. However, you would be able to see that some parts of the hotel needs refurbishing. When I entered my room, I immediately noticed the smell of old hotel room, which probably has permeated into the carpet in the room. The carpet also had several small spots or stains. Other things in the room were nice: the bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, and the wi-fi connection was alright.
