“Yeosu Expo 2012”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Near perfect hotel for visiting the 2012 Yeosu Expo. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk from the Expo grounds. After walkin all day, only 5 minutes was a comfort for my family.

The outside of the hotel is newly remodeled. Inside a small coffee shop is open late for last minute drinks. The rooms are nothing special. We had a queen standard and queen deluxe room. The queen standard had enough room to walk around the bed and small bathroom. The deluxe room had plenty of room.

The bathroom was "new" but did not have a bath tub. The shower was large enough for a rain shower.

Breakfast was part of our package stay and well worth it. Besides the coffee shop, there is nothing to eat close by the hotel. Standard buffet breakfast with fresh fruit, eggs, and good coffee.

Stay there again, yes if going to the expo or something in the area. One word to foreign travelers, limited English spoken. Be prepared.

Room Tip: Foreign travelers, bring a translation guide.

I booked this hotel from hotelwide. You have to walk pretty far from the train station to get to the hotel but it's really near the expo, only maybe 5-10min walk. The hotel is pretty new with a cafe and a Korean restaurant in it. The room is pretty spacious but no safe. Toiletries including, razor, face cleanser n cotton bud etc were provided in the hotel. Think the hotel was new so the bed was very comfortable.
The thing I am displeased about was the room cleaning. All my small packets of items I put on the basin including a small bar of face soap which I put in a small zip lock bag and a small pack of make up removal were cleared. I did not bother to feedback since its thrown. However, I have other small packs of products as moisturiser which I left on the dresser were left untouched.
The staf speaks reasonable English and so far I do not have any problem communicating. The corridor of the hotels leading to some of the rooms requires to walk up a few steps but think should be no issue.

I was here last week for 2 nights to access to the Yeosu World Expo 2012. The hotel is brand new and the room was very clean and bright. The rate was not super cheap but it was a reasonable considering you are getting a brand new room and also walking distance to the expo entrance. Highly recommended if you are going to visit the Expo!
