Hera Motel

For that price, you can't expect anything better. Yes, it is a love hotel and it looks like one both from outside and inside. Walls in common areas and in the room are decorated with quotations about love and play. Not really a place for families. Even on the room key it says something about adult playground:)) We picked it based on recommendation in Lonely planet and it probably was the best recommendation ever. It was the cheapest hotel we stayed in Korea, but we got a huge room, huge bed, aircon, air purifier or humidifier (not sure, all buttons were labeled in Corean:)), huge flatscreen tv (although showing only one channel, a very low quality porn:)))), big bathroom, jacuzzi bathtub, and even a steam sauna for two!! Two PCs, fridge with water and some energy drinks, and all the possible amenities you could think of. The only con was that it was a smoking room. But seriously, if all love hotels in Korea are like that, I would never have stayed in a "normal" hotel. The disadvantage with love hotels is that you cannot book them online, so you can never be sure if you can find one in your destination. This one is located next to Dongdaegu station, so perfect location if you're arriving or leaving by KTX. It's surrounded by a dozen other love hotels and next to the station, which makes the area feel a bit like a red light district, but the experience is really worth it.

I was stuck in Daegu for just one night after a meeting and in need of a room. My business partner brought me here and was excusing himself all the time while on the way. I did not understood why.
This place is NOT a hotel as usual. Its a love hotel with rooms made for two.
Quick check-in, no passport, no questions. Payment upfront. Some towels and amenities have been handed over. In the elevetor you can find several phone numbers if you dont wanna stay alone in that love hotel.
Opening my roomdoor made me surprise. A huge room with a big big bar. Two flat screens, two computers, fridgte, hot and warm water, little mini bar. A bathroom with a tub for at least three persons and a rain shower. A bed with electronic adjustments.
Over all a clean and surprising room for a business traveller.
Wifi was for free and in a good quality. So I did not use the PCs in the room.
The light arrangement took me some time to learn how to use. You have lots of options to illuminate your room for any activities you are planning to do here.

Might come back...

Don't be put off by the fact it's a love hotel. Well it's not for families or groups, but couples will find a very comfortable place to stay here. The rooms are huge and reasonably priced. The bed is King size and there is a sofa and extra large flat screen tv. There are all the amenities you would expect to find including towels, shampoo, robes etc. Although strangely no toothbrushes or toothpaste. There is a computer with the internet in the room. The shower is a rain shower and a normal shower. There is a bath that can be a spa and the shower area is also your own personal sauna.
Upon arrival you pay and get your key, as well as some complimentary food and drinks. There also seems to be the option of checking out annonymously by leaving your key in a box in the elevator. They had an English pricing list.
The rooms are very colourful and there are a variety of lights, including ones that change colour. We had no problems working all the controls. There are a few seedy elements like girls pictures with phone numbers at the entrance to the elevator but we didn't let that bother us.
There is no laundry so it is probably not somewhere you would want to stay in for weeks. But for a few nights it's perfect. We found ourselves looking forward to going back every evening as we knew we would get a good night's rest.
It is located near the Dongdaegu train station which is a KTX station and there is a subway too. If you have trouble finding it you can ask the people at the information booth outside the station they are extremely helpful.
We would definitely stay here again if we are in Daegu. Good value for money and definitely another interesting Korean experience.
