I've been told that this is the only hotel for Western people in Gumi and probably is true, as Gumi looked to me as a huge extension of industrial plants. If you do not have the necessity to be in Gumi very early in the morning, probably Daegu (40mins by car) offers a larger hotel choice.
I arrived in the evening (dinner time) and in the whole building very few room lights were on, so the hotel looked deserted, with the exception of two receptionists in the enormous and neon-lighted reception.
The room was on the contrary small but cosy, clean and very calm in the night. Internet connection was free and properly working.
Funny (or scary!) was the fire escape equipment in the room: a long rope (the room was at 6th floor).
Very good breakfast buffet, no remarks about service.

First the positives: The hotel website is great; the hotel staff are very nice and helpful; there is free wireless internet on the 1st, 2nd, and 11th floors; the rooms have wired internet for a nominal price; the restaurant on the 11th floor is pretty good; and the breakfast buffet was great! The room was quiet, and I always felt safe. Just up the road there's an old-fashioned wind mill on the river - apparently it's a park. (I discovered it too late to investigate.) I'm told the Gumi Century is the nicest hotel in Gumi City, and I would definitely stay there again.

Unfortunately, throughout the hotel they use older-style fluorescent light bulbs, so it has a strange blue hue in the lobby, and the rooms are dark and depressing. Mentally it's hard to get past the depressing fluorescent lights and the surroundings of this predominantly industrial city. When I opened my window, the view was entirely of industry and stacks spewing smoke.

The room was fairly small, but appeared to be fairly clean (not perfect). There was a problem with my bathroom in that sewer gasses were coming in. I took my lead from the cleaning staff and was sure to close all of my drains at all times. Unfortunately, it only margainly helped, so I also needed to keep the bathroom door shut. It was better in the morning, worse at night. (I've stayed there twice, and this didn't happen the first time.)

The heat, apparently, automatically resets itself to about 80F every hour or two, so I would often wake in the middle of the night in a sweat.

There is nothing in the immediate neighborhood for food or shopping, especially at night. There's a daytime convenience store across the street.
