“good value hotel”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

near airport, near eateries, near shopping, parking space, great deal! check in strictly at 2pm, no laundry services. ask for extra pillows and were provided. big toilet space. many tv channels. good for arrival & departure. we proceed to yongdeum rock from here but most tourist spots are at the south, so it is a gd place to stopover.

The Hotel was located in Jeju-shi, which was far from most of the tourist attractions that lie in the south and east of Jeju island. However it is near the airport and a taxi ride to the airport cost around 3000 Korean won only. We stayed in the deluxe double room for 2 nights and were generally satisfied with it. The Hotel is located along a lane off the main road and is not visible from the main road. There are quite a number of small eateries around the Hotel offering Korean BBQ and seafood. There was also a Chinese restaurant directly opposite the Hotel. You can ask the Hotel staff for recommendations. The staff we spoke to spoke good English. The carpet in the hallway outside the room was worn and dirty. However, the room interior was clean and there was no hint of cigarette smell at all, since we requested for a non-smoking room. Free wifi was available in the room. There was instructions on a notice board on the wall telling the guest how to login to use the wifi. The room was spacious enough to accommodate two sofa chairs and a coffee table, besides the double bed and table. The bathroom was also clean and spacious and include a bathtub, though there wasn't a shower screen at the bathtub and no toothbrush was provided. The mattress was hard, probably one of the hardest I had slept on. Nevertheless, I feel the Hotel meet our requirement, which is to provide clean and basic accommodation for our weary bodies after a day out shuttling around the touristy attractions on the island.

I am not sure why amongst so many hotels in Jeju Island, this ranked no. 1, but it got my attention. I suspect it is partly because the guy at the front desk speaks very good English, and most reviewers are English speaking. That is a rarity in Korea.

It's sited at the new side of Jeju city, close to the airport, surrounded by many eateries, so you will never go hungry. Across the road is a street mall.

Rooms are spacious enough, but there isn't much of a view. The wooden floor is heated in winter, and you are strictly prohibited from walking in with your footwear. This is not a problem with Asians, but Westerners may take some getting used to.

The room decor is, well, interesting. Maybe that's why there are at least two Teddy Bear Museums in Korea.

This isn't resort accommodation, but as a base for exploring the island, it's clean and convenient. And reasonably priced.

Is my ranking keeping it at No. 1? :)

Hotel staff spoke very good English and were very attentive to our requests and needs. The rooms were large and clean; fit for families or up to 4 adults. The hotel rates are very affordable and rooms have large bathrooms. The hotel is also pretty close to the airport and come with free Wifi. The hotel also provides free parking for hotel guests and is located near the shopping street. There are also various restaurants nearby for black pork BBQ.

It has been a wonderful experience staying at "December Hotel" on an island of Jeju. If you travel light without checked in luggage it is in the walking distance from the airport. If you are keen on going to sauna it is a 3-minute walk from the hotel, just across the street. It is nice to explore the island by bus, so the bus terminal is near-by. The rooms are clean, the staff are exceptionally friendly, and always ready to assist you in any way possible. It has been an excellent stay. Cheers!

Just a 5 mins taxi ride away from the airport and Jeju intercity bus terminal. Its also a 5 minute walk from the airport limousine bustop where you can board the bus to/from Seogwipo.
Plenty of restaurants around the hotel with a little shopping area just a few blocks away.
The room was an adequate sized room, clean and comfortable. Reception was warm and friendly, booked a taxi tour at the end of stay. Will definitely stay again for next trip.

Stayed in Jeju December Hotel for 3 days 2 nights and was greatly impressed by not only the room condition but also the services provided by Jeju December.. We reached around 1.45 pm and the place was filled with other tourists trying to check in.. We were greeted by the receptionist Joe who in my opinion is one of the most kindest and helpful receptionist that I have ever met during my travels. He was so patient and introduced all the nice eateries around Jeju and even printed out the maps for direction so we may find the place. He even recommended the black pork Michelin star restaurant in Jeju which was the best meal during this trip and was patronized by Psy himself. He even helped us book a taxi driver for our sight seeing trips around Jeju island for a really reasonable price.

The room was beyond expectation and was really comfortable.. It was spacious and for the price paid, it was definitely a bargain. Although the floors were heated, decided to turn on the aircond and the electricity worked perfectly without disruption. Had sound sleep and was well rested..

The location of Jeju december is really great as it is near all the eateries and shopping areas.. You will not go hungry in Jeju City as it was filled with restaurants and there was Paris Baguette around the corner. The hotel is also close to the airport that is reachable within 10 minutes.

For the price I paid for this hotel, the experience was definitely memorable and will come back here in the future.
