After 5 days in the bustling city of Seoul, Kensington Stars was a wonderful retreat.
The views of the mountain are spectacular. Cable car rides, Buddhist temples and mountain hikes are only a few minutes away - many different hikes that can be done. (we chose the shortest)
The hotel is interestingly themed - with a floor dedicated to international ambassadors, another to korean movie stars, korean sports stars etc.. It is a beautifully appointed hotel.
With a UK theme - there is a double decker bus outside that is advertised for romantic proposals. The top floor restaurant, Abbey Road has a Beatles theme and there are many interesting Beatles artifacts displayed throughout the restaurant.
Much was enjoyed at this hotel. The food and service could be improved. Perhaps it had to do with our visit there being at the end of the South Korean vacation season...
Improving the food would really improve the experience at this hotel.
All in all, Kensington Arms provided us with a much needed beautiful natural retreat.
