Service. Staff is very quick to help you with your luggage. Old-world, attentive hotel service.
Carpet had quite a few stains. In need of replacement.
My second time at this hotel. Great location. Hotel is OK. Breakfast isn't great and expensive if you but it separately. Room is nice. Small business center that charges for computer use. Large hotel feel. Airport limousine bus stops right in front of hotel. Good shopping is about 20-25 minutes walking.Lots of eating places just a few minutes of walking.
Since the anti-government protest has started to really pick up a few weeks ago, coming in and out of Koreana Hotel has become rather dangerous. Some days, protesters barge into the lobby to block guests from checking in or out, other days they start fights with hotel staff. What's the reason behind all this ruckus? It just happens so that Koreana Hotel is owned by the prominent businessman Bang Sang-Hoon who also happens to be the publisher of staunchly pro-government Chosun Ilbo daily. The hotel's convenient location in central Seoul with various government offices and the presidential residence nearby, and Chosun Ilbo's market position as the dominant conservative paper in Korea has made it a favorite destination for the protesters. To be fair, aside from the security issues, the hotel is excellent - its rooms are quite spacious, cleaniness impeccable, and rates are very reasonable. But, I don't think I will be returning to Koreana anytime soon as I value not getting punched in the face.
Good location and fairly cheap. Breakfast buffet was good, dinner food was average. The rooms felt very old. The bed was horrible and old. Average hotel, I probably would not stay there again.
