Reviewed September 24, 2012

Everyone recommended us this place. The rooms are huge and the bathrooms are great, some have a sauna in the shower and a Jacuzzi. It is quiet and it is a 2 minute walk to the city center, subway and buses every where. But the rooms were shabby, dirty and not appealing at all! The mattresses were so bad that we could not feel our backs any more. The reception does not speak one word of English and they are not friendly! We asked for a sheet, they did not want to give it, so we had to sleep directly under the blankets. We were moved to another room, which was even bigger, but the problems with the mattresses were the same and the room was crawling with cockroaches.We checked out and found a much much better deal in the Seo-Gu area! for the same price we had a beautiful, clean room with a friendly reception and great beds and very quiet.

My friends and I stay here when we go to Gwangju. It's close to where we go out at night, it's clean, it's not super smoky, and the rate is great.

My wife and I have stayed at the Windmill 3 times now, and in general it is a good place. Just outside of the Dong-Gu Shopping area/Migliore, the location is wonderful. The rooms themselves are usually clean and clear of smoke smell. The one time we upgraded to a deluxe room, it was well worth the money, as the decor and furnishings were very much improved, and for only about $4 more than the basic PC room.
