I had no choice but to book this hotel due to a conference scheduled to take place at the hotel. When you walk into the lobby, it looks like a nice hotel. The reception desk is to the far left past an awkwardly placed ATM machine. It looked like no one was behind the desk until you came closer and... More

I went to the Hotel Philos last year when I was a KOICA trainee. It is situated only from the city center. Everything was good not bad. I like to come again Pohang and Philos. It would be on my wish list.

This Hotel is supposedly a 4-star Hotel. Well, the receptionist is very unfriendly. In the rooms, generations of guests have left their marks in the carpet, you really do not want to go barefoot. Cannot be recommended at all.

Expedia sold this as a Deluxe Double room, but there wasn't anything Deluxe about it. Carpet was very dirty with big black spots throughout the room and large cigarette burns, even though it was a non-smoking room. I was afraid to walk around without something on my feet. When I first walked into the room it reeked of cigarette smoke,... More

Had just one night here last week - so this review is pretty much to say it is clean, comfortable, and i found the front desk staff smiling and very helpful! They directed me to the fish market for a very good dinner (a little expensive though) but could not recommend any other restaurants apart from their own. The small... More

After long trip, this hotel really look like paradise. The food for dinner was awesome. They serve delicious seafood. More choice for muslim. The room look nice with beautiful view to the street from room 614. But the floor doesnt look really clean. Bathroom is small.

stayed two nights for a business purpose. It is famous for delicious restaurant and wedding ceremony in Pohang, but I did not use its restaurant. The front desk staffs are kind but didn't smile. Room was old and had not sufficient concentric plugs for electric devices. Not so bad, not so good for business trip at the price.

Was on a 1-night stay biz trip in Pohang and was told that this was the one and only good hotel to stay in. Agree that the receptionist at the counter was a bit 'cool' or rather 'cold'.

We were in room 618 with twin beds. The window view wasn't great. Bathtub and shower is nice and clean though the bath towels were worn out.
