Only if you find yourself stuck staying the night IN Pohang, as my wife and I did recently, should you consider staying at the Ramada Encore. We found the hotel a bit dirty, the staff rather aloof, and the quality of sleep very poor. The bed was "springy" and uncomfortable and the sheets very old, thin, and stained. Worse though, we found it very hard to sleep as the walls were so thin. We could hear every shout and laugh, every search for a key and turn of a door knob, and every intimate moment of our neighbors, err, romantic interlude. I understand you get what you pay for, and this place is pretty cheap. But all these shortcomings put together make for a hotel you best avoid. I recommend doing what we would have done if we didn't need to be in Pohang early the next morning: stay at the Hilton up the road in Gyeongju. And while you're there, don't miss the shabu-shabu at their Japanese restaurant. Pricey, but superb.
