My friend and I stayed at Koreana Hotel in the third week of October 2016. Our twin room was on the executive floor - floor 17. I believe there are two or three executive floors. Room was very clean, comfortable and spacious. Loved the view looking down - dowtown Seoul. The room comes with breakfast included although we didn't make...

I remember staying many years ago at one of the first elite hotels in Seoul (Chosun). I just stated for 3 nights at the Koreana Hotel and have been enjoying the comfortable, premier accommodations.

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 price was very reasonable and location seemed ideal so we pulled the trigger. The location was perfect - literally right in front of Gwanghwamun station,...

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. The hotel room is generally huge only for the fact that the furnishing is really old. The bathroom decor looks like it was build in the 90s and you can see the taps have...

We had a great time staying at the Koreana Hotel. Good size room, clean, comfy bed and the heated bidet toilet seat was very nice. We even bought one for our home! The staff is very helpful and they do speak English. The location is perfect. On the down side, breakfast is very expensive if you go for bacon &...

We have stayed here 3 times, so I feel I can have an educated opinion of this hotel. It is older, but the rooms are kept clean and for the area the rooms are large. The staff is always friendly and accommodating which makes the stay that much more enjoyable. Actually the last time we checked in the front desk...

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.

This hotel is nothing very special. The rooms are very spacious and considering the hotels location on the main road, the noise level is very low. The breakfast buffet had a very limited choice in the lounge on the 21st Floor. If you are not necessarily a fan of rice in the morning almost no choice. One thing, that was...

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.
