“Value For Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

We stayed here in January and considering it is a business hotel, they went well out of their way to accommodate a family of 5. The staff were very helpful, very polite and we had great fun trying to communicate with them either through my brother or through hand gestures! I'd def stay here again, purely for the lovely staff!

I stayed here only because my Korean company had the corporate rate (~ $60) and the location, western edge of Cheongju was convenient to catch either bus or high speed train. The bus terminal is only 3 minute walk and the train station is about 15 minutes via taxi. The room is typical motel room and worn out. The carpet on the hall way needs to be replaced. I asked for non-smoking room, but the hotel does not have one. The room did not smell too bad though. The breakfast spread is pretty bad either for western taste or eastern taste. I managed to eat few things that looked okay. There is Ramada in town, but they are way overpriced (3 times) and just slightly better than this motel. If you are going to stay for just one night, this place is bearable.

This was our first trip to Korea and we booked Hotel If because it was reasonably priced and in the city centre . For what we paid, we got excellent value for money. Bearing in mind this is only a 3 star hotel, we had a huge TV, en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi bath, free internet and computer in our room and a fridge stocked with juice , water, coffee etc all included in the price. Breakfast was also included in the price and there was a range of Korean and western food available. The hotel staff were friendly and extremely helpful to us as we don't speak a word of Korean. I think this is more of a business hotel than a family holiday hotel but the staff went out of their way to organise taxis for our trips.

Room Tip: Not state of the art luxury but excellent value if you're on a budget
