I had to stay in Seogwipo city as instructed by the guide for the land tour I signed up for and
I opted for this hotel as the my first choice of accommodation was fully booked and I had a budget. This hotel is quite conveniently located though not on the main road and I had read positive reviews on Agoda prior to booking and was convinced it would be okay and had some expectations but it turned out to be a regret.
I took a short 5mins taxi ride from the limousine bus stop outside New Kyungnam Hotel to Hotel Feliz Telcon as I didnt want to walk. Upon arrival, the hotel looked ok on the exterior. Entered the lobby and was greeted with smell of mildew. The lobby is small with only 1 staff at the reception. The guy at the reception spoke very basic English. I asked him if there was wifi in the room and he said only cable internet but he was nice enough and took a router and followed me up to my room so I could have wifi access. However, as it turned out, though the router work and I could get connected to the wifi, I somehow couldnt surf the internet. I didnt bother to ask for assistance since I was going to be there for 2 nights only.
There is only 1 lift at the hotel and it is of the average size. However, there was a strong smell in the lift throughout my stay. Not sure what smell but it was kind of fishy smell. The corridors to the rooms are not very brightly lit and it looked drab.
The room is quite spacious for a small hotel, and was clean and well kept. There is an air-con with remote control, a fan, small fridge, TV, dresser with lotions, comb and a packet of condom (which led me to conclude that this is a love motel instead or maybe it is common for all hotels in Korea to provide condoms? I guess not.). The toilet is also spacious and 2 small towels are provided. Nothing much to rave about the room as the design was not very appealing.
I was given a room on the top most floor and it was kind of uncomfortable and creepy to wait for the lift as it is right next to the staircase which was leading to the rooftop and the staircase was dark. You can get clean water from the dispenser at the lobby.
As I was travelling, I was very uncomfortable with the fact that it is a love motel. The hotel is located very near to the main shopping street so you are accessible to the shops and a market - the only problem is that you have to walk in from the main road and as I was travelling alone, I didnt feel too safe walking into the smaller road towards the hotel at night.
I was glad I booked this hotel for 2 nights only and moved to another accommodation for the 2nd part of my stay in Jeju-do. This hotel is listed as goodstay by the KTO but I just couldnt understand what made it a goodstay as it is not at all and is actually a love motel. I do not recommend this hotel for female travellers. I should have paid more for another hotel nearby. Will definitely not come back here again.
