The room looks old and needs to be refurbished. There's a kitchen and a sitting area and two rooms. One room was empty where we could lay the Korean tatami. There was a queen size bed in the other room with nothing else. There was no bath towels and we had to use the hand towels after showering ourselves. According... More

Hotel with no gym facilities, room service. Just a humble place that you will stay and live like the local. Came here for winter, heated wooden floor, w sitting, dinning area that comes w a small kitchenette. Was a very good experience to sleep on the floor.. Just like the locals.

First of all, it's around mt. seorak, so it's understandable that it's in the middle of nowhere, luckily there's a minimart inside the hotel right next to the reception. The room is big enough to host more than 4 people (2 rooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom). However, the room feels old and they dont provide bathroom amenities, not even soap!... More

When it's quieter at night, u can hear the conversations in the other room if they are loud. The tatami sleeping is quite a novelty but it's not enough cushioning for people who are used to thick mattresses. Open the windows slightly if it's too hot as there is central heating from the floor. Generally korea hotels dun include toiletries... More

I remember being very surprised opening the door to our 'room' to find an apartment instead, with two bedrooms, a living area, a kitchenette and a dining table. We were allocated two of such apartments which was unnecessary because... More

Being the third stop of our tour in Korea, we had learnt to keep our expectations low. We stayed for one night and was relatively surprise that there as no bed to found. It was basically "tatami" style. Thankfully there were a few duvets which we plonked together to create a more comfortable sleep. The room was extremely spacious, though... More
