Koreana hotel has a good location in the middle of the political center of Seoul with city hall and the Gyeongbokgung palace around the corner. The hotel feels a bit worn and the interior has seen its best days. The rooms are nice but in need of an update with new clean carpets and less worn furniture. I was lucky...

This hotel was our last stop in Korea before returning to our home in Japan after the conclusion of my four-year-long Korean assignment. It was a somewhat bitter-sweet ending to my unaccompanied stay made so by having to break ties with our many friends in Korea, though future travel plans should make periodic reunions joyous. We'd come to love Korea...

Nice hotel close to the city hall. Easy access as you can get the bus directly from/to the airport. The style is classic (may be also a bit old) but it is clean and comfortable. Service is good and position is very good if you intend to visit downtown Seoul

Attentive and polite staff at the reception and lobby. One thing I noticed in Korean hotels (after a small number of observations) is they don't have bellboys who quickly step up to carry your suitcases and bags the minute you arrive -- like in many other countries. The Korean hotel staff generally keep their polite distance, bow and greet and...

Koreana Hotel is situated at Gwanghwamun, within 5mins walking distance to subway station/Gwanghwamun Square, 10mins to Jonggak/cityhall area and 15mins walk to myeongdong. Super convenient! Lots of restaurants located within walking distance too. On top of that, the hotel staff are friendly and helpful, and executive breakfast was pretty awesome! Talk about dining with a view at the Executive lounge!...

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.
