“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2009

The Dormy Inn Suwon was a pleasant surprise. Easy enough to find since it's right on the main road about 800m from the railway station (as you leave the main station exit, walk straight and it's on the left side of the road).

The lobby was small but clean and new, while the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I booked the room on the internet and had no issues whatsoever. Checking in was a breeze and took me all of 3 minutes.

Getting out of the elevator, I was a little dismayed to see the condition of the corridors. Really run down, no air-conditioning, dark and looked like a back alley. After going into the room however, my impressions changed dramatically.

Only after stepping in did I realize that the Dormy Inn is not a hotel but are serviced apartments. For the price of a single room, what I got what a full aparment! Living room, study room, master bedroom and a full kitchen with all appliances, crockery, cutlery, washing machine and even a special kimchee fridge! Everything was new, clean and in perfect condition. Free internet connection was also provided via a specially provided LAN cable (no wifi and you cannot use your own LAN cable. If you don't have a computer, there is one in the lobby that is free to use). While my hotel booking said that breakfast was not included, it's actually provided free for all guests from 7am - 9:30am every morning. It's a basic but very decent spread.

If you need anything, there is a convenience store right outside. For meals and nightlife, take the back exit (through the small car park) and you'll have bars and restaurants lining the road all the way back to the train station. You'll be spoilt for choice.

All in all, a most pleasant stay. If ever I do go back to Suwon, this is definitely the place I'll be staying at!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2008

My husband and I stayed at a 1-Bedroom Deluxe Apt. with our 7-month old baby in May 2008.
The place has a very good location, 5-minute walk to the railway station and the bud 30 which runs to the Mt. Gwanggyo, a lovely hiking area even with baby.
The furniture is a bit old-fashioned and certainly nothing special. Kitchen is equipped with not much, but enough for stay of a few days. Interestingly they don't provide knives.
The Dormy Inn could also not provide a baby bed, which we were informed before. But we managed to put together 2 armchairs which made a safe bed for the baby.
Staff is very friendly and very helpful.
The breakfast is something to stay away from.
