- Koreana HotelJul 05, 2012
Given the prime location and price range of Koreana hotel, I was sadly unimpressed with it's quality and service. With so many luxury options in the surrounding area, Koreana seems to be doing little to keep up with the competition.
The entrance and public areas of the hotel feel a bit rundown, and more like a straight-up convention center than a hotel. The overall aura of the place smacks utilitarian. The service was fairly ungracious and cold.
On the plus side, the rooms were spacious, but the decor was outdated and flat.
Strangest of all, the feature of the hotel that they seem most proud of is it's spa, which is advertised largely with a photo display in the lobby. What's strange about that, you ask? The spa is only for the male guests of the hotel. No girl-type-humans allowed.
Bottom line? For the money and service, your dollars would be far better spent at any number of hotels in the area.

Located adjacent to City Hall, the Koreana is a good value for the location, though you could call it the "ugly duckling" of the area. The lobby has a convention center feel and lacks character. It's design and amenities are purely utilitarian, but if you don't plan to spend lots of time on the premises, the clean rooms are more than adequate. The guest rooms are actually quite large, especially compared to more expensive hotels nearby. The decor is traditional and a bit old fashioned, but the suites have a Victorian feel that's almost charming. Plus the suites are absolutely massive; the bathroom alone is the size of a standard king-sized room in city hotels. You can comfortably fit a family or group of friends in one of the suites. The sauna is only for men, the fitness room is tiny and there's no spa. Customer service left much to be desired -- I stood in front of the registration desk for more than five minutes until one of the three idle hotel representatives bothered to help me. The Koreana earns 3 stars instead of 2 because of the size of the guest rooms and the fact that it actually is a great choice for the budget traveler that only plans to be in the hotel when sleeping.
