“Best Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2009

I was very surprised that this budget hotel far exceeded my expectations, especially since I had read the "not so good" reviews on this website. It was small (same size as a 4 star hotel in Daegu I stayed at later that week), but quiet and clean. There was no coffee in the room (same as that other 4 star hotel), but I was served a free American breakfast the next morning. Service was great at the desk. Free Internet downstairs was a plus. Convenience store right around the corner, and Daegu bank for exchanging currency across the street. It's close to Seowon Market place, so be sure to visit there before heading for downtown. When walking around, I found a fruit auction going on, and a restaurant serving authentic Korean meal (have to sit on cushions on the floor). Menu had pictures.

This hotel was probably built in the 70's and nothing has been updated since. The non-smoking room smelled like old smoke and the carpet and fittings looked like it came out of an old movie. It was amongst one of the cheaper deluxe hotels listed on a few internet hotel websites - and you do get what you pay for. If I had to do it again, I'd pay twice the amount to stay in a nicer hotel in a better area.

The hotel is located in a light industrial area with scattered high rise housing a short hop away. A couple local restaurants in the vicinity but nothing to shout about. The only good thing about the hotel is that it's right next to a subway station so getting to and from the hotel is no problem at all (15m from Exit 3 Bangogae Station on line 2 of the subway system). And trust me, you want to get away from the hotel as quickly as you can!! There really is nothing much to shout about!

Having said all that - I also have to compliment the helpful front desk staff. I couldn't get the free internet service working (bring your own laptop / no wifi). She came up to the room and we worked out the problem in a matter of minutes. All this was done with her not speaking a word of English and with me not speaking a word of Korean.

At the end of it all, a helpful staff doesn't make up for all the other shortcomings of the hotel. If you intend to stay here, keep your expectations low.

Based upon some good review we booked the Chrystel for 3 days. When the taxidriver dropped us of at the hotel we already had second thoughts about the booking. The hotel seemed to be more a 'short term' stay hotel based upon the content of a machine offering a wide variety of condomns and clean underware in the lobby.

The absense of wireless internet and a working airco also helped us to decide not to unpack but look for another hotel. The Novotel Daegu City Center seemed to be a very good choice and out of a different world compared with the Chrystel.
