Geumgang Tourist Hotel
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Gongju
Reviewed 8 May 2013

I extremely enjoyed our two night stay at this hotel in Gongju!

The only slightly vexing thing for me is the name, or at least the various English "translations" thereof. Depending on the source we found it under "Geumgang Gwangang Hotel", "Geumgang Tourist Hotel", "Kumkang Hotel", "Kumkang Tourist Hotel". On the facade of hotel and on the map available at the tourist office I think it is "Kumkang Tourist". But this is already all I have to complain about for this hotel! :-)

The location is on the north side of the river and you can walk everywhere:
- 5 minutes from the express and intercity busstation;
- ca. 15 minutes walk to Gongju Fortress and its excellent Tourist Information Office (VERY helpful staff with English, Chinese and Japanese language skills and lots of material on the sights etc);
- 15 minutes walk to a lot of different (mostly Korean style) and very yummy restaurants;
- 20 minutes walk to the local bus terminal from where you can catch buses to the nearby national park and the most interesting temples in the area (ask for a timetable of all busses at the tourist information!).
The hotel is situated in a street with many motels of which some are a bit closer to the bridge to the city center but it's only about 100-200 meters difference and we enjoyed the walk along the river very much.

For our 40,000 won per night we got a very comfy, spacious room with a huuuuge bed. The price also included a small breakfast. It was not much but for free. Mostly Korean fare and some toast and eggs for the western palate.

Furniture is modern and stylish, the bathroom is small but also very nice and definitly very clean. Big flatscreen with on demand movies for free, computer with internet access in the room.

Our room had no window, but the bathroom had one so that daylight found it's way in. For two nights with lots of sightseeing and hiking we did not mind at all.

The staff is EXTREMLY friendly! People at the reception desk spoke English well and willingly, if they were at a loss with our questions they rang up another employee with excellent English who was always happy to chat.

All in all we definitely enjoyed our stay at this hotel and in Gongju and would definitely come here again!
