“OK, not great”
Reviewed November 18, 2005

Korea is a strange country and this is certainly a strange hotel. US$125 a night for a 2 star hotel that passes itself off as a 4 star hotel is quite expensive. This hotel is hardly an oasis, but more along the lines of a desserted warehouse half way through a Stephen King's novel.

The rooms have not been renovated for as long as I have lived but the cable on the 17-inch TV was great! In order to be able to swim in the pool, you HAVE to buy a swimming cap. The best time is spent outside this hotel, take a walk around the lake, it is extremely calm and soothing but watch out for the crazy people in motorised mini-bikes going up and down the walking trail.

If you REALLY feel the need to go to Gyeongju (there is nothing else to do there), stay at the Hilton down the road instead. It is only a little bit more expensive but a lot better.

Needless to say, I was over the moon when the KTX pulled up at Seoul Station.

I have attached a picture of the depressingly dark and narrow hallway of the hotel. It is no different to walking along the 3rd Tunnel at DMZ. The 2nd picture is the view from the balcony of the Concorde, looking at the hotel which I should have stayed at.
