Great hotel on the beach
Reviewed 11 november, 2019
Stayed here for 4 nights in an Ocean Double. Definitely recommend the Ocean rooms which face the beach. Great to fall asleep with the sound of waves on the sand. Although if you’re a light sleeper the noises from fireworks on the beach and people walking down the street seems to go on until early hours. I didn’t find it a problem and the benefit of being right on the beach definitely outweighed that. Plenty of parking, good rooms and helpful staff. There isn’t any cafe/breakfast but there are lots of places around. Looks like they might be opening a cafe downstairs but it still looked under construction when I stayed here. Only 2 negatives I had whilst I was staying here which could be addressed by the hotel is the lights on the balcony are on 24/7. There is no switch to turn them off. Also, no shower screen. I’d prefer a shower cubicle rather than a bath in a hotel but having no shower screen made water go everywhere but I think that this is fairly normal in this situation in South Korea. Would recommend having a car as well as this place is a perfect base to go to Seoraksan and also I drove to the Goseong DMZ area which was interesting. I also drove to Sogeumsan Suspension Bridge (Wonjo) which was a couple of hours away but really worth it. I really annoyed my time at this hotel.
visited during Olympics, some excellent staff but hotel does not have many amenities
Reviewed 13 march, 2018
Coming from the USA, we spent 3 nights during the Winter Olympics. The hotel is new and right next to the water. We had 2 separate rooms (which were, unfortunately, not facing the sea). The hotel was booked by an intermediary, an American company. It is near some restaurants, a 7-Eleven (which was interesting for us, coming from the USA), and was relatively near the coastal Olympic events. That is the good part. Now, for the rest. First of all, the rooms had no place to put your clothes: no closet, no shelves or cupboards, not even a chest of drawers. We had traveled literally half-way around the world and our belongings had to stay crammed in our suitcase or on the floor. The hotel has no clock or radio, no gym, no business center (or computer to check your emails), no ice or vending machines, and there was no way to tell the cleaning staff not to clean the room (i.e., there was no "do not disturb" signs and the staff did not speak much English). The towels we were given in the bathroom were very small. When we asked for bigger ones, we were told that they did not have any larger ones. There was a table in the room, a TV (most of the stations were in Korean with no English subtitles), and a small refrigerator. The hotel did provide us some cultural insights, which did make our stay a little bit more pleasant. There is no 4th floor (it is a 6-story building) as apparently the Korean word for four sounds a bit like the word for dead (I note that it is hard to avoid the comparison with American hotels that do not have a 13th floor). The entry doors to the rooms opened in the opposite direction from American hotel doors. The heat came directly from the floor which was wood; there were no vents, radiators, or wallboards. Each floor had a big, glass-walled public area which was unheated and had a green astro-turf floor. As there was a large ash tray, we assumed that this was the smoking area for each floor (smoking is apparently more common in South Korea than in the USA). There is no way to enforce it, but we were told that one is expected to take off one's shoes before entering the hotel room. There were a couple of nice sides to our stay. One of the staff at the front desk, Sangpil Yoon, was extremely helpful, friendly, and accommodating. He tried to make us feel at home and overcome some of the challenges. Pil was great. He helped us plan out our daily excursions, making phone calls (in Korean) to get everything organized, and made lots of helpful suggestions. In addition, the hotel offered us an American-style breakfast (for about $10 extra per person) with cereal, toast, cheese, eggs, coffee, fresh fruit, and the like, as Korean breakfast is nothing like American breakfast. This gesture was greatly appreciated.
