Location is somewhat isolated. Room is spacious and clean. Temperature is too warm but no window could be opened. Staff professional and nice. Huge lobby and internet was excellent and included. Breakfast selection was excellent but hot food was only Luke warm and most savoury food oversalted. None the less, nice hotel.

The annoying: 13,000 won to use the sauna? Come on. When hotels...

Very nice rooms with very nice staff who are ready to help at any moment. Food was not my utmost interest since no halal food was being served. Had to go out and dine myself. Other than that, it was a great stay in the hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights early Sept. We found the staff spoke excellent English and were extremely helpful. The rooms were very spacious and beds very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again if we were to visit Gwangju again. Location was great too as a comfortable walk to the metro.
