“`Nice hotel but a bit dated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2009

Stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding. The Core Riviera hotel is on the edge of the Hanok traditional village a fascinating area of small houses, museums and restaurants. This is the main reason why a traveler would normally visit Jeonju, the hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the main shopping area.. I was attending a wedding held at a temple in the village and in one of the hotel's function suites.

The room overlooked the Hanok village and was a standard international hotel room if a little dated in style and furnishings. the room was very comfortable and clean, it had the benefit of a PC and free internet access, there was no wifi access in the room.

The public rooms of the hotel were well decorated and there was a very nice bar on the 1st floor (2nd in Korean). The hotel is heavily used for conferences during the week and weddings at the weekend.

The room was part of a wedding deal which included a western style breakfast that was OK, not great but perfectly edible. Would have preferred the Korean version with more kinchi but this was not on offer to our party and the rest of the party were happy to escape more spicy food. The food at the wedding breakfast was also Western and must have been expensive but the execution was poor. However this would not stop me from staying there when if I visit Jeonju again

The Core Riviera is a very pleasant hotel, well located for anyone wishing to experience historical Jeonju.

The rooms are large by Korean standards and we actually had a PC with free internet access in the room.

The rooms overlook the Traditional Korean Village, a collection of shops and galleries where many of Korea's excellent traditional arts are on display. From there, it's an easy and pleasant walk to the city center.

The staff were very kind and while not everybody in the hotel speaks English, it was always possible to find someone that could help us.

We enjoyed the Core Riviera which we booked on Hotelwide.com and would definitely stay again if we're lucky enough to visit Korea in the future!
