We spent two nights. Our booking was initiated through TripAdvisor and check in was very easy. I had emailed the hotel to determine if transport to Incheon airport was available. I received a prompt reply that tickets for a bus could be purchased at the hotel. The bus runs frequently. The room was very well appointed with desk, lighting, stocked... More

The Koreana goes above and beyond expectation and follows the world-wide understanding that Korean hospitality is top notch. The hotel offers a gym and spa service-as well as wonderful restaurant and bar-and a 5-star feeling of room-at a less than 5-star price. The location is unbeatable and they even offer shuttle service to and from Seoul-Incheon airport.

My friend and I booked a room last minute through booking.com - we were staying at my aunt's apartment in the suburbs and got tired of going back and forth into Seoul every day.

The location is great! Few minutes walk to place of interest around city hall. it's closed to the train station so travelling out was pretty easy.

It could use some renovations but overall it's a nice 4 star, it probably was a 5 star years ago. Room service food is super expensive, I'm thinking this is more of a business hotel where the company pays the guests a huge per diem for food.

Staying in Seodaemun

Neighbourhood 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.
