With few options available in Jinju the Dong Bang Hotel is a good option. Breakfasts are small but okay. Overall the hotel is a good 3 Star hotel and located on the river bank for easy access throughout Jinju and a nice running track along the river banks.

I stayed here for one night on 10th June 2015. I made my booking for a River View Room direct through the online request form and received confirmation within 24 hours. On arrival I was greeted warmly by the receptionist and checked in quickly with no issues. The room had a nice view which looked out onto the river and... More

This hotel has seen better days, but altogether the atmosphere is pleasant, the desk is well manned and everybody is nice and friendly. The coffee shop offers a good selection, the breakfast does not offer a big selection, but it was sufficient for me. The bathrooms are OK. The carpet in the rom was not perfectly clean, but I could... More

The worst is their wifi, it depend which room you are getting, most of the room cannot connect to wifi, so those using smart phone or iPad have to go to lobby and use. Only thing is still good, they provide a free airport transfer and for business traveller, they provide a free transport... More

Hotel location is great, very near to the riverside where you can bike around in the morning or in the afternoon. Rooms are OK, western standard. You can even request for a Korean style bedroom. Even if the hotel seems scary at first, you'll feel very at home after the first night. plenty of english channels. Staff members are very... More

Good things - nice comfortable room with an ok sized bathroom. Water boiler with coffee and teas available as well as an adequate minibar. A very high-tech washing-and-blowdrying toilet. They've been around for a while, but I never expected to find one in a hotel. Good water pressure in the shower. From room 701, I had quite a nice view,... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Dongbang after both times visiting for the Lantern Festival during the first week of October. On our first visit we were fortunate enough to have a higher floor room with a central view of the festival site. This time we were not so fortunate! The room was... More

The hotel is very old. Room is small and expensive. The location is near to the shopping area, need to walk around 15 minutes. This hotel rate does not include breakfast, so please take note. Only thing good for this hotel, free shuttle bus from / to airport and the company you want to visit during the day time
