As others before have said this hotel is located is in a newly developing area so there isn't much of anything but tall buildings. The surrounding area is well laid out – neat and nice with flower beds, trees and a small lake but it lacks any feel the Country itself. If you are here for business or a conference it is fine. The hotel good, very comfortable and well equipped. The standard rooms are small to medium sized but have all you need including a clothes iron, ironing board, hair dryer and tea/ coffee making facilities – if you are finding it difficult to decipher which is coffee and which is tea the sachet called ‘ Jardin’ is coffee! The breakfast is seemingly a good spread but for those of who would like a western breakfast ( I do) the choice is bit limited but its ok. The buffet lunches are dinners are ok but without significant variation day to day. If you want to sample a change there is a small cluster of restaurants a short walk from the hotel – just about five minutes. This is a sort of a park area around the lak which is good for walking. The gym is pretty basic.
Shopping – Seoul is a good 1 ½ hours away on the metro and you have to switch lines once. If you don’t know Seoul and you have only limited time I wouldn't advise it. The e- Mart which is in Dongchung gives you a Wallmart type of shopping. It also has a good Samsung and Apple store. Across the road from it is ‘Square One’ - a new shopping mall that has come up in the area. It houses some international and Korean brands – H&M, Zara, Adidas and a collection of little Korean shops in the basement. Dongchung is just 5 stops away on the metro and metro station just behind the Hotel itself.
I would certainly stay here again but not if I am on holiday.
