8/10 Very good

Very clean and presentable.

Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

The staff was friendly and helpful. Light breakfast was plentiful but not varied. The laundry facility was very much appreciated. The location was convenient to public transit. Zero storage in the room so could not unpack.

Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

The staff are magnificent but there is not a lot to do around the Hotel. Unless you have a reason to visit Gwangju I don’t see the point of going there. Beds were hard with small pillows and towels were tiny (as big as a hand towel). Breakfast was toast or cereal with juice or coffee so not much variety.

비즈니스 호텔 정도로 생각했는데 그냥 모텔촌에 있는 모텔이네요.. 환기도 잘 안되고, 방음도 잘 안되고, 수압도 너무 약하고
