My husband & I stayed here from Dec 30-Jan 1 and stayed at 305 pension. The pension is really far and the taxi driver got lost trying to find the resort. It was a long travel from Gimpo airport via bus then taxi from bus terminal. After 5 hrs, we finally saw the pension. Very nice view, nice accommodation from... More

We came to Elf Pension directly from Icheon airport. We bought the 8am ticket to Wonju and even though we were 10 Min earlier than the scheduled bus timetable we still strangely miss the bus. At first we thought the bus was late but after speaking to a rather rude bus station lady who insisted that we were late and... More

We stayed here in January 2013. It is like staying at a no-frills fairyland. If you get a good price ($50-$75) it is worth it, with nice views, and warm and clean rooms with a kitchen (the beds are old though). It is off the main road so you can't arrive by bus. The mountain scenery here is much nicer... More

The hotel is very nice, rooms are spacies, with kitchen. It is like staying in a fairyland. My children like the two Husky dogs own by the hotel boss. Step out of the hotel, the scenery of the faraway mountains and the snow make it looks like a chinese water painting. Marvelous!

We arrived late in the night with the help of the directions obtained from the pension's official website. If you are driving, this direction will be helpful. The room was nice & value for money. However, there's no closet space, just a clothes stand for your clothes. The room was supposed to have complimentary LAN but we didn't find any... More
