Nice Hotel, great location

This hotel is located blocks away from the Seoul train station as well as the Seoul city hall and art museum. The staff is friendly and courteous. The only thing that wasn't that great were the prices on the room service menu. It's fine if you work for a company and they pay you a high per diem, but as for vacationers... $9 for a can of soda? Overall it was a very nice hotel.

Executive Room Worth It

Between the renovated floor, executive lounge services, and the included amenities like wifi and water, executive is the way to go.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

visit the Cheonggyecheon river walk just opposite the hotel and walk several km along its banks, taking in the artworks on both sides. An inspiration by a previous mayor of Seoul now held up as an example of urban recontruction.

Filthy Hotel

I moved from the Marriott to this hotel for a different location. However, it has old carpet, stained furniture in the rooms, and questionable beds. Also, the rooms are very outdated. I had to change rooms b/c the first one smelled like smoke (although all hotel rooms should be smoke free). The location was great, however there are other hotels in the area. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Perfect location

Location can't get any better than Koreana Hotel. It is located near many major metro lines. We were in Korea for business, and had to do some travel by KTX to get to some of the meeting sites. Koreana Hotel is only a stop away from Seoul Station, so the commute was very pleasant. The staff is friendly and the water pressure was great in the bathroom. The room design is a little dated, but no funky smell. Two complaints: 1) AC needs to be a little stronger--the humidity built up and 2) The wake-up alarm on the TV startled us for the first couple of days, since we had no idea that the TV would randomly turn on and were convinced that the room was haunted.

Take your passport to the main train terminals (Yongsan or Seoul Station), since there are heavily discounted KTX passes for foreigners under the Korail program.
