Pros - swift check-in, very polite staff, rooms clean, ate in Western restaurant which was fine and all we needed. Little expensive though. Bus stops right outside direct from Inchon Airport.Small shop sells essential food and drink etc. Cons - rooms a little ‘tired’, couldn’t work out how to flush toilet!, cafe/bakery at 9.45am didn’t serve any bakery items!?!

Overall a very good stay”
Pros -The staff are very courteous. -Rooms are very clean. - Water heater control and water pressure is good. Just that the knob took me a while to figure out how it works. But you only have to set it once. - the room traps the heat well despite a less than 10 degree celcius temperature outdoors. - the cups are wrapped to prevent it from being dirty. Nice touch. - a 24hr convenience store is just downstairs. You don't even need to go out in the cold during winter to get some food or snacks. - breakfast is great. Con - I was there when it's turning winter. The air conditioning still blows cool air. Not sure if it's something configurable or perhaps it's just not the season yet. - the rooms are of quite old design, but the chambermaid did a good job at cleanliness. - overall i think the room can be lit up a bit more.

old building, but location pays off”
Building is very old, carpet is old, tiles in bathroom are chipped or broken, toilet bowl needs effort to flush completely, however its location is good and convenient. Bed is comfortable anyway, and you get a huge fridge in room too. Convenient store is inside building, and shuttle bus to/from airport stops at hotel lobby, it is a big plus.

Will definitely stay @ Koreana again!!!”
Was in SKorea in Sept 2017. Stayed at Koreana 4 days while in Seoul mid Sept. The people working there are personable and speak (or understand) English well. They were very helpful with answering my ‘tourist’ questions, and calling a taxi for me whenever I needed one. The hotel is contemporary, appealing, and clean. My room was spacious and nice, incl closet space. The nice tall gentleman who led me to my room showed me how things work. That was cool! Housekeeping does a great job. They provide 2 bottles of water daily, tooth brushes & paste, razors, combs, robes, slippers, and of course, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion (yay! I can free up space in my luggage next visit). The bed is kinda hard, but this seems to be typical in SKorea and Japan. I really like that Koreana is located on a main street where events and entertainment happen. The ICN airport limo bus makes a stop right in front of Koreana Hotel (thank goodness; my luggage was soooo heavy). Taxi to/fr GMP is < $20. There’s a coffee shop and convenience store on the first level. While I was there, a currency exchange center (I think) in the same block was being set up. The Dongwa Duty Free Shop and hop-on-hop-off tour buses are next to the hotel.So nice! I got to sleep in ea day. Koreana is ~5 min walk to the tourist information center, cultural center, art museum, ~18 min to the night street market, ~12 min to Lotte Duty Free/Dept Store, ~20 min to the historical folk museum. (Could be less; I’m only 4’11”… lol). The quality and staff of Koreana gave me pleasant experience that I returned late Sept for 5 days after visiting Busan and Jeju. While in Busan and Jeju, Koreana safely stored my luggage. The hotel has western and Japanese restuarants, but I didn’t eat there since I live in the US and was in Japan prior to SKorea. I was only interested in Korean restaurants. Luckily, there are tons close by. When I return to Seoul next year, I will stay there again, and recommend the hotel to my friends and

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.

Perfect Stay”
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!

Hotel is located near City Hall subway and Meongdong. Very easy to get around. The Seoul City Tour bus terminal is right next to the hotel and the bus stop to the airport is just outside the hotel which we found really convenient (you can also buy the bus ticket from the hotel). Just a short walk along the side of the hotel are cafes and local eateries. You can find really cheap and good food there.

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.
