We unfortunately booked 9 nights at this hotel during the period between Christmas and over the New Year. It certainly wasn't our first choice, but everything else, other than the top end hotels, was booked out months before our trip.
First impressions are that it is in total need of a refurb, it's tired and tatty, but the room itself was clean enough. The plumbing leaves a lot to be desired, the water pressure in the showers is poor and requires having to hold the shower head in your hand to shower properly.
We were in for a real shock on the first night, our room was situated next door to a late night bar, which blasted excruciatingly loud music until one in the morning, it was that loud, you could not only hear it, but you could feel the vibrations.
We stood that for 2 nights, but on the third, my partner got out of bed at midnight and went down to reception to complain and request that they either find us a quieter room or we would check out. Surprise surprise, they found us a room on the other side, where they seem to like to put the Korean guests, of which are the majority and who they seem to cater for. Apart from one other, we were the only western guests in the hotel.
This hotel only serves breakfast, which is supposed to be served between 7 and 9, but we found you were lucky to be served before 7.30 and you were given a choice of continental, American or Philippine. We opted for the continental, which consisted of 3 small pieces of barely toasted tasteless white bread and enough butter and marmalade for one slice. We also had a small glass of orange and a satchel of 3 in 1 coffee, which was the tastiest part or the breakfast, but tough if you don't take sugar, because they don't give you the 2 in 1 option.
Needless to say, we would not book this hotel again, but apart from everything we found the staff polite.
