With a nice view on the river, helpful owner and in the centre. It is across the bus station so convenient if you are travelling with public transport. Bus to guin sa an seoraksan national park leave across the street.

We liked our stay because we have arrived at the bus terminal, and we wanted to leave early for our trip to the mountains. The Rio127 Guesthouse is close to the bus station for the gorgeous National Park. It was no problem that the cafe in the house does not open early. We got all we needed for our breakfast... More

We stayed in room 302, which has a lovely view on the river. The room is pretty small, but highly OK for the price we paid (40.000 Won/night). We had a strong wifi signal in our room (but not the guesthouse's wifi). The cafe downstairs is amazing, beautifully decorated and with a lovely terrace. The bed seems to be much... More

For the amount we paid, we got more than we bargained for! An awesome cafe located at the entrance greeted us in the day when we checked in. The lady at the counter was friendly and knowledgeable about what we could do and explore in and around Danyang. I'm not entirely sure if she speaks English tho, as we communicated... More

N36°59'12" E128°22'17" This Lonely Planet and Rough Guide favourite for backpackers was called Rivertel until its renovation in 2013. It also uses the name Guesthouse Rio 127. It is a small three-story guesthouse along the river north of the bus terminal, quizzed between the high-rise Luxury and Sketch love motels. After the renovation, the ground floor became a cafe with... More

They changed the name recently to RIO 127. Good location right around the corner from the bus-station. Rooms are fine, breakfast not included. They run a Café with outside seating and a wonderful view across the river. Great chocolate and korean sweet stuff. Restaurants around the corner too.

The café area is beautiful, owner speaks great english, but isn't around much, the other staff is willing to call him though. Rooms are fine, still not renovated (visited in May, maybe it changed), looks like any other korean love motel, especially the bathroom needs some serious work. The breakfast is included and nice, great coffee, but it doesn't save... More
