stayed two nights for a business purpose. It is famous for delicious restaurant and wedding ceremony in Pohang, but I did not use its restaurant. The front desk staffs are kind but didn't smile. Room was old and had not sufficient concentric plugs for electric devices. Not so bad, not so good for business trip at the price.

Was on a 1-night stay biz trip in Pohang and was told that this was the one and only good hotel to stay in. Agree that the receptionist at the counter was a bit 'cool' or rather 'cold'. Wasn't really smiley enough when i asked for the bell boy. Merely motioned me to get my own bags up the lifts... More

We were in room 618 with twin beds. The window view wasn't great. Bathtub and shower is nice and clean though the bath towels were worn out. The bedroom is wide enough for the 3 of us (one king bed and one single bed). Nice quality Duve. Basic amenities are in it such long table by the tv, kettle for... More

stayed 2 nights, and told by colleagues who travel here quite a lot that it is one of the better hotels in area. Only one gripe being the room did not have an iron, and though the front desk appeared to understand my request to borrow an iron either they didn't have them or it got misunderstood. The room was...

My associates and I spent 2 nights here on a recent business trip to Pohang, we recieved a professional but rather "cool" reception from the front desk staff probably just due to the language barrier as the entire hotel staff is non English speaking. It is clearly an older property, carpets are a bit worn in both the rooms and... More

Spent three nights in this hotel during a business trip. Good comfortable bed with good duvet. At this time of the year it is cold and everywhere including the hotel corridors are even cold, therefore having a good run with a heating system is essential and this hotel meets that criteria. Food in the hotel is also good.

I don't know who posted those pictures, but none of them look like the actual hotel. As for the hotel itself, it is okay. The rooms are nice, the beds are comfortable, and the staff is okay, but not outgoing.

This is just an average hotel. The hotel staff was ok. There was plenty of parking. The breakfast was not as good as the Ramada Encore. If I had to stay here again, I would with out a problem.
