Cheap Hotel in the Heart of Downtown Seoul

Settled in the center of downtown Seoul, the Koreana Hotel is perfect for business or leisure travelers who want to experience the city. If you look at a Koreana Hotel map, you will see the hotel is less than half a mile from Deoksugung Palace. Alternatively, if you would rather take in a show or go shopping, the Sejong Cultural Center and Lotte Department store are also within easy walking distance.

Fitness Center, Sauna, and Restaurants

After a long day, or maybe a long couple of days, of sight-seeing, it can feel good to just lay low at your hotel.

The Koreana offers some great options for those who are so inclined. First, there's the fitness center, which features bright hardwood floors and large windows, giving the room a light, airy feel. This makes spending time there much more enjoyable. Of course, the new treadmills, free weights, and machine weights also add to the guest's experience.

Once you've gotten your workout in, head over to the Koreana Hotel sauna to complete the detoxification process (just make sure to stay hydrated!). Then, why not check out one of the Koreana's many restaurants? They have full Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Western restaurants. If you're not in the mood for a full meal, there's also a cafe and bakery.

Your South Korean Home Away From Home

The Koreana Hotel strives to make your stay as comfortable and "home-like as possible. In fact, the hotel displays its slogan, "It feels like home," prominently on its home page.

To this end, guestrooms come equipped with refrigerators. Refrigerators actually make your room feel a great deal more like home because you don't have to eat out every night. Moreover, when you do eat out, you can bring home the leftovers.

Each room also comes with an in-room safe, so you don't have to worry about leaving your valuables behind. There is free wireless Internet available, which is an essential in any modern home. The hotel adds little flourishes like HD televisions with cable, and bathrooms that come with both a shower and a bathtub, making the rooms feel just that much more luxurious.

Bottom Line

If you are looking for a cheap, homey, luxury hotel in the center of downtown Seoul, be sure you at least check out the Koreana Hotel. It will definitely be worth your time.

Expert Reviews
Lonely Planet
A sleek exterior, a marble lobby and welcoming staff are a promising start, but the rooms only just make the grade.
Michelin Guide
A mid-range hotel in a prime central location, close to Seoul City Hall and Gyeongbokgung and Deoksugung (royal palaces).
It may not stand out in any single category but the Koreana offers travelers the best combination of location, space, and value of any high-end hotel in Seoul.
