Alpensia was a lovely and scenic location! Though quite a distance from Seoul itself (approximately 3 hours by bus), it was well worth the time we took to get there.
The room was very spacious - when we first entered the room, we were greeted by a kitchenette with a microwave oven, a heat induction cooking stove, and the complete utensils needed to actually eat in! Further in was the living room area with a large flat screen TV, a nice comfy sofa, and a fake fire place - a very cosy arrangement indeed. Further into the room through a door was the bedroom itself - with a large cosy king sized-bed (differs depending on your requirement) AND pillows with differing softness levels. The toilet attached to it was large as well - there was even a bath tub. Of course, while walking through the whole place, one can't help but notice the wooden heated floors which added a whole new dimension to the definition of comfortable (it was freezing cold outside!).
Of course, one can't forget about the view that the room afforded us: the magnificent ski slopes were but just a stone's throw away from our window - such a lovely landscape!
When we were hungry, there was not a shortage of restaurants around - there were Japanese and Korean eateries around at reasonable prices, even Lotteria, the Korean fast food chain was present if you had a craving for a burger and fries. Even if you were hungry late at night and the eateries were closed - a convenience store with instant food and groceries was just a short walk away!
For those of you who are not too sure on how to get there, we took a bus from the Dong Seoul bus terminal (the frequency was pretty high) to Hoenggye (ask the lady at the counter to write the location in Hangul on a piece of paper if you're not too sure on how to pronounce it). It takes about 3 hours, and there are multiple stops - so just make sure to listen to the bus driver's announcements when they arrive at a stop. At Hoenggye itself, take a taxi (costs about 8000-10,000Won metered) for about 10mins and you're there!
