Hotel C Palace
Ranked #14 of 30 Hotels in Geoje
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Stayed in this hotel as other hotels in the major towns were full. It is located in a more rural area of Geoje, far from the major towns. It is a large hotel which dominates a hill overlooking a small bay and every room has lovely sea views. You can walk down the hill to the charming little town of Wahyeon. You can walk along the beach, catch an island boat tour and also there is a lovely coffee place there called Blu/Blanc where you can enjoy coffee and a light snack and listen to jazz music.
As we wanted to be able to cook some of our own food we chose a "family" room since it had a kitchenette (emphasis on the "ette"). It came with a small cooking space in a cupboard, with basic kitchen utensils to cater for the korean family. The accommodation had a separate bedroom to the lounge/dining area but it was all very compact, with low ceilings. The room did not come with a kettle, ironing facilities or in-room safe- however these were cheerfully provided when we requested them.
Room issues were: The furniture/fittings was looking a bit worn ie: stains on tables, pen scribble on cupboard door, veneer peeling of doors. It was necessary to unplug the floor heating when operating any other appliance or it would short circuit. The walls are thin and when we had neighbours we could hear them through the wall. When you take they pass key out the electricity to the fridge disconnects, leaving your food unrefrigerated. The only real english channel is CNN, Bathroom is freezing (no heating there), Teatowel sized towels are provided only, No toiletries provided (just the occasional bit of soap), when I questioned this they advised that because this was a family room they weren't provided (and these rooms cost just as much as hotel rooms!). On the positive side the rooms have large balconies and lovely sea views and you can enjoy hearing the waves lapping against the shore at night. There is also free wifi (in lobby only) but there are computer ports in rooms. the kind staff would bring free fruit platters to us every other day.
As we were staying off-season most of the facilities were closed eg: spa; bar/bistro downstairs. They have a fabulous gym downstairs with great equipment (but very cold with no heating). Unfortunately the hotel had a problem with leaking ceilings and there were many places on the gym floor where water was leaking through so it made the place smell very musty. It was also leaking in the room floor corridor.
The staff at the hotel were always professional and helpful when asked. Did not try the restaurant.
If you would like to be away from the city and chose one of the "hotel" rooms, which look very modern and new (instead of a family room) this hotel would be a reasonable choice.

Room Tip: Stay in a "hotel" room rather than a family room

Stayed here with my husband while he was in a business trip in Geoje as other hotels were full. It is out of both of the city areas and you would need your own transport or to use a taxi but the location is lovely on the cliff above a nice sandy cove. Tourist pleasure boat trips leave from the marina below the hotel and it is clear that it is a popular Koren tourist destination in summer. The hotel is an up market hotel patronized mostly by wealthier Korean tourists though very relaxed atmosphere, with classical music in the background and a western style restaurant serving strangely 80's style food. It is a big hotel with every room having a sea view and the views are to die for. We were there at spring so it wasn't busy but the hotel has huge facilities including spa and gym, conference and family /suite accomodation, a pub, lounge bar/ cafe, and a Korean restaurant that point to it being very busy in summer. A lot of these facilities were closed for the season when we stayed. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Some English is spoken but if not then they make every effort to try and understand you. The only disappointment was to find that when we walked on the sandy beach below there was a substantial amount of rubbish and litter lying around. The sea looked crystal clean and it may have just been the rubbish was washed up over the winter and yet to be picked up but for such a beautiful area it was sad to see the environment neglected. However the hotel is delightful and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Every room has sea view. Higher floor better view.

The hotel is quite new, comparing with other in the surrounding area. A nice view and a quiet place. The restaurant and room service close at 10 p.m. in low season, and the hotel is quite far from the city.

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean view.
