“Clean quiet hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Only stayed one night, but the room was clean and quiet, like the rest of the hotel. The bed is probably too firm for European backs - especially mine! Breakfast was good with a variety of Korean and international dishes available. Location is almost on the edge of the lake, but there is a very large public car park in front, which is used by leaner drivers to practice on Sunday mornings.
I have stayed in better hotels, but I have also stayed in much worse. Everything in the room worked including the air con, WiFi and TV, but the light switches took some working out.
Overall a reasonable hotel at a reasonable price.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

We went and payed a lot of money for a 8 day stay and received terrible service
The management is a joke
Not one table we sat at had a table clothe with out a hole in it
The food that was prepared had been prepared many hours prior to being put at the buffet
When we made comment to management he was aggressive and rude
we stay in hotels all around the world and this is definartely one to avoid
Friends stayed just down the road at the Ladena condo paid 10 dollars more per day and it was excellent

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2008

For our trip to Chuncheon, we prebooked an ondol room (they also have western style rooms) at the Chuncheon bears hotel through www.benikea.com. It is situated next to Lake Uiam and we got a room with a nice view on the lake.
Although the interior of the hallways, doors and exterior of the building are quite outdated, the room itself was spotless, Amenities like shampoo, shower gel and soap were complimentary. We also had a mini bar. This was our first ondol room in South Korea. Unlike the Japanese matresses, the Korean ondol matresses are quite thin so sleeping on the floor can give you quite of a back ache.
The man at the reception was very nice and we received a welcome gift when we checked in. There is also a large free parking lot available next to the hotel.
The location is fine when you have a car. When you don't have one, I recommend you stay in a hotel/motel near Chuncheon centre. It is a few minute drive downtown. It is certainly worth going out there for dinner, because the dakgalbi (Korean bbq spicy chicken) in myeong-dong is one of the best dishes we tasted on our holiday.
In the end, we were very satisfied with this hotel: clean, affordable and good for a quiet good night sleep

  • Liked — cleanliness, price
