“Aged design and poor maintenance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

From the design and fittings, I can see that this hotel was once a 5 star hotel. But the poor maintenance make it a deserted castle now.
The room is actually quite clean, but its aged fittings make it feel like haunted. Refrigerator is provided but no kettle. Water dispenser is only located at 6th and 12th floor.
We reached there at night and left the hotel early in the morning. So I did not really try any of its facilities. No WIFI in the room. The aircond of the room is pre-set at lowest 23 celcius degree whch make us feel a bit hot during our stay.
As this hotel is arranged by our travel agent, I am not too sure about the price. But if you are looking for a place for you to relax and rest, I would not highly recommend you to this hotel.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013 via mobile

This hotel is so far away from Seoul. We had a conference at Sintex next door so we stayed closest to it. The room are OK but older style. It really needs updating. The food in the restaurant was not great. The staff speaks little English but they were very helpful. The internet in my room did not work. When I was there, the maintenance guys were all around doing their tasks during the day. I find that it spoils the look and feel of the place. The golf course looks nice but I did not get a chance to play on it. I wish I did. It is probably a place to stay if you had to.

This hotel has large rooms that are quite clean with fresh towels every day- quite standard is how I would put it!
Unfortunately the hotel is miles from anywhere and you will spend a small fortune on taxis into Suwon or Seoul or Incheon Airport. Unless you have hired a car there is no point in stay this far out.
The hotel is very over priced and even the restaurant is expensive and has a limited menu.
Wouldn't recommend the hotel to travellers.
Most of the staff are helpful and friendly- only met one rude receptionist (but maybe he was having a bad day!)

Room Tip: ask for a lower floor as I was the 19th floor and had to wait 5-10minutes each time for a lift! Only...
