“Perfect location, everything works, nothing more needed for a short stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Very close to the waterfront and some of the town's main tourist attractions, this hotel is ideally located if you're there for only a few nights. We stayed two, if you're staying longer you may wish for some extra comfort, but for a short stay it's fine. A/C works (although a bit loud), tv and internet work and the bathroom is clean. There's no breakfast but in this town finding food is not a challenge. The walls in between rooms are a bit thin as it's quite noisy, but again, if you're there only to sleep then it won't be too much of a problem, as you'll be tired of all outdoor activities that Sokcho has to offer. One of those is obviously the Seoraksan park, which is a 30 minute busride from the hotel.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

This hotel has probably the best location in Sokcho. It is located 100 meters away both from the bay and from Sokcho's main market. And the backdoor of the hotel leads you directly to the main shopping street.

The hotel itself is a medium size hotel. Rooms are OK: not very big but modern, clean and with all the usual amenities, including a desktop PC. The free breakfast is very limited as reported by others but it's OK for a few days.

The room rate can double or triple during high season as is the case for all Korean hotels located on the seaside, so try to get a room in the low season if you can. For instance, the room rate is usually cheaper in June and by the end of August (compared to July till mid-August).

Four things you should do when you are in Sockcho (and they are all very close from this hotel): (1) go to the beach (you can cross the bay on a traditional boat to get to the beach) (2) visit the "Abai" village (it's on your way to the beach anyway) (3) eat a platter of grilled fish (only 12,000 wons per person, you can pick any of the places near the hotel) and (4) visit the central market.

Room Tip: Try go get a renovated room. If you are lucky, they will not charge you any extra fee.

Good room and lovely view over the water. Splendid site and the newly decorated rooms on the third floor are quite spacious. The phone number is 033 638 8637 if you want to book. The room was about £70 which was a bit more expensive than others but the hotel is situated right on the main shopping street opposite the market with lots of restaurants nearby. Very good place to stay if you are going up the cable car in the mountains - it's only half hour drive and easily reachable by car if you have one. Breakfast was limited - tiny bit of cornflakes and one boiled egg and toast and jam. Coffee was vanilla flavoured and fairly disgusting. Overall a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Get one on the third floor so that you can see the bridge
