We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. It was comfortable and adequate for our needs our room had it's own bathroom with overbath shower, wc and washbasin. It was a 'wetroom' type bathroom. We had clean towels every day. The room was heated with underfloor heating and was comfortably warm for the time of year as the temperature outside was -6C. Breakfast at the hotel was disappointing as there was little in the way of european food. Koreans seem to eat 'soup' for every meal, which was good at other times if the day, but not for breakfast. The staff were very helpful and tried to understand our English. There was one male member of staff on reception who had enough English to be able to give us information we required about travelling back to Seoul. This hotel is very centrally located and close to shops, restaurants, etc.
The Korean people largely are very helpful, polite and generous in every way. Taxis are very cheap and the best way to get around Jeonju with the help of addresses written in Korean to show the taxi driver, most of whom use sat-nav and will put in details of your destination. One taxi driver who had no English went out of his way to find our destination by asking other taxi drivers for help while we waited in the car, then nearly went off without his fee as he was so happy to have found us our destination.
Eating out in Jeonju is inexpensive and very healthy and enjoyable once your pallate has got used to the different tastes. There are a few european recognised eateries in Jeonju such as Dunkin Donuts, Outback Steakhouse and Strabucks and sometimes you just want to eat something a bit more familiar. There is a plethero of small inexpensive restaurants just around every street and backstreet, so seek them out for the real Korean experience.
Seoul is a wonderful experience and a must for any visit to South Korea. There are war memorials/museums, palaces, shopping malls where you can shop till you drop especially if you are a techno freak. Seoul has a wonderful underground system and once you have mastered the underground plan it is very easy to follow. Again this form of transport is very cheap and you can put your ticket back into the machine for a refund of your deposit once your journey is complete. There is an express bus service from Incheon Airport to Jeonju, drop-off is at the Core Hotel which is where you pick-up the bus to go back again, there is a ticket booth here and you can book in advance. The journey takes about 3 hours with a comfort stop mid-way. The cost of a single journey was 29,000 Korean Won which is about 16.50 GBP. Buses leave very promptly.
