“Comfortable and”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

I agree with the other review that the hotel doesn't really cater for non Korean speakers, but this is normal in this area. Reception staff speak some english and there is a translation for the remote controls. I did have some trouble over what I thought was the electronic shower controls (in Korean), I subsequentlt found out that this was the control for the sauna! CNN is now available albeit that I never forund uot until the last of 5 nights and the room temperature was now set to 18C - a little too cold! I couldn't get any wifi in the room but there was a pc with internet in the room and I was able to unplug the hard wire to use in my laptop. The hotel has a restaurant for breakfast only so there is no bar and no restraurant for the evening. Fortunately there are plenty of bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk.

Room Tip: Top floor (10) has the best rooms

Reviewed 28 October 2011

Stayed one night at this hotel as it was convenient to the factory at Banwol that I was visiting. It seems very advanced and exotic but for a foreigner it was a little strange and awkward since all the directions and signage was in Korean. For example, the room temperature was set at 27C (for late Autumn, Fall, far too hot). And there was an all in one remote that covered everything such as the TV and the A/C but all the buttons in Korean so didn’t know what was what.

The TV only offered local Korean language channels and eg Discovery but this was not in English. No CNN for example. Also no wardrobe, just some hangers, but nice bathroom and plenty of toiletries. Breakfast was included and was quiet generous, cereal, juice, toast, a hot selection, and some cold cuts, enough for a business breakfast.

I would recommend this hotel as it is quite comfortable but only for a short stay.
