At first glance, the exterior looks 5 star - until you see the fountains empty and not working. The lobby looks 5 star, to an extent. The accessories used to decorate say otherwise. Gorgeous marble entry way, looks luxurious, but the luxury stops there for the most part.
The "western" breakfast is not very western. I had read about pancakes and there wasn't a pancake to be seen. As per the other reviews, you are competing, not with Chinese people, but Koreans, for your food. This hotel caters to Koreans, as do most of the places in this area.
The room was fine. Bed linens very nice, bed was softer than a Korean style bed but not super comfy. The bathroom rivals a 2 star hotel. The level of cleanliness left a lot to be desired.
It was odd that the hallways are basically dark all day. This hotel is very far from the parks you would probably want to visit. We passed the Pullman much closer to the scenic areas...I would stay at the Pullman if I had a choice.
Also, the level of English is far from University level. If we didn't have a tour guide to translate we'd be out of luck. When I asked for an extra towel, they looked at me like I was crazy.More
