Our room was very comfortable and spacious. The bathroom has a large shower. Air conditioning worked great. Bed and choice of pillows maximized comfortable sleeping. The lounge downstairs had live music on a Friday night.

We stayed 3 nights in Gwangju. The hotel was very accommodating and gave us a cot for our almost 3-year-old Daughter, complete with Pororo bedding so that was very nice. The staff are generally friendly but I Guess being away from major cities, the staff were not as conversant in English. We had a hard time trying to order room...

This hotel was near Subway station, around 8mins by foot. And it is easy to move to Gwangju Seongchong KTX station too. Easy to plan for the walk-trip around main area of Gwangju. Good service and breakfast.

Great room facilities and great breakfast in this smart hotel. On the outskirts of town so not ideal for social and entertainment purposes . Stayed as part of group tour and it was fine for that purpose.

The hotel was beautiful and the rooms were very nice, but the breakfast was amazing!! There were so many choices, and all of the food was delicious. My husband would love to stay here just to eat! We also went to the pool, the water was fairly warm and was in good condition.
