We really enjoyed this hotel. Super friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms that are very comfy and a Good location as well. Excellent value away from the hustle and bustle. Enjoyed a great walk from the hotel around the lake and good mountain views. The forsythia were starting to bloom right outside my window which was a treat!

I came to the hotel for a break from my routine. When I walked in I was greeted with warmth. The room was the perfect size for 1 person, the covers/bed was comfy, and I had a great view of the skyline from the balcony. More importantly Starbucks was only a few meters away :) Hotel is great for business... More

I stayed here for one night in order to be close to the Buddhist temple and I quite liked it. Away from the hustle and bustle of Seoul gives one a serene feeling. My room faced the mountains and the view in the morning or just about anytime is great. The room was comfortable and clean and felt homely. I... More

First of all, I would give the hotel 3.5 points but I had to make the decision between 3 and 4. It got 4 stars because I liked the theme of the rooms, and the helpful staff. Basically, the rooms were clean but already somewhat worn, so maybe a task for the next time is to renew the rooms a... More

The hotel is good but is not a 5 star one. Good points: there is wifi in every flor, it is good located and people working there is really nice and helpful. The bad points is that it needs a little more dedication when it comes to cleaning. it's not dirty but it can be improved.

Decent stay for two nights. Well maintained and serviced rooms. What we were not happy about this property is about food. Breakfast was so so but charges were as high as $8 and it was very basic cold breakfast. They do not provide lunch or dinner unless you have a large group

We chose Swiss Rosen because it was one of the few left which was around £80 per night (we stayed in Aug - peak season). I agreed with a reviewer below that the place was a once glory but has lost it's attraction due to lack of refurbishment and maintenance. Most people stayed there were Koreans. Our room was ok...

After checking out several love motels near the bus station we opted to try the SwissRosen despite it being outside the city in the resort area. We were pleasantly surprised. The price was right, the room was very clean and spacious. It was little dated and funky but it felt safe and comfortable and the staff were very nice and... More

A funky but dated tourist hotel. We stayed three nights in the off season and pretty much had the place to ourselves. The manager bent over backwards to help us rent a car, which is essential to seeing many of the temples and other sites outside of town. If you just want to hang around the lakeside tourist complex you... More
