Stayed here briefly while visiting some friends in Gwangju. Bit far out - need to jump in a taxi to go downtown, but the hotel is great. Staff are really nice, and the hotel is perfectly located if you're heading for the airport. Gwangju has few international standard hotels, but this is one of them. Pity that there are none... More

It looks like an 5-star hotel, but in reality it is a 4-star. Facilities look gorgeous, though the maintenance and cleaning is not enough. For example, a tea table in a guest room look good, but it can have more wiping and polishes. Bathroom counter looks great marble, but it has a lot of water stains, so it looks rather... More

Very impressed. The typical view of the HI brand in the USA is that it is a decent side of the road 3 star hotel. Well, on the international side they are certainly changing that view. This was my first time at this hotel. I was in town for a one-night stay for business. The lobby had nice Christmas decorations.... More

I spent only one night in this new, modern architecture creation. Everything was top class, the room was spacious and well equipped, breakfast plentiful with good variety, gym excellent and service came with a smile. The hotel is located outside the city center so it is not within walking distance of anything. But if that is not a problem, you... More
