Disappointing stay
Other than the hotel location which is very near mount sorak, there is nothing much to recommend for this hotel. Air con and one of the light was not working. Room was very dim. Only provide 2 free bottle of mineral water and any extra bottle is chargeable. Hotel staff could not really understand english.

Quite expensive for the offered services, unpleasant staff, small room
An old fashioned hotel in a stunning location. Unfortunately it is way overpriced and the staff is unpleasant. The room is really small and uncomfortable. It is quite useful to hike Seorak San

It's a great hotel, I fully enjoyed my stay.
The location is exceptional, it is the hotel closest to Seoraksan park. The service is superb, the staff members are friendly and eager to help. Pricing is a subjective matter, but I personally felt that I had a very pleasant stay in this themed hotel, so my money was well spent. i would choose this hotel again if I ever visit Seoraksan again. By the way, the food in the Abbyroad bar was so tasty, and it was a good dinner after a long day of hiking. The portion could have been bigger though.

Very well maintained
Fantastic location, excellent management of facilities
The building is really really old, but it does not look that old thanks to the excellent management and maintenance of facilities. The food actually got even better than a few years go. More choices of food for breakfast buffet. It is really nice place to stay, but a bit too expensive. I hope the management of the hotel to spend some more cashflow from the high rate charge to upkeep the facilities with newer equipments. Room facilities are still marginally acceptable, but actually poor for a 5 star hotel.

Money to buy the view only
Front desk service is good
I will say it is an old five stars hotel with dirty room with faint light. The room looks dark and old. Almost everything should pay to buy. And breakfast add for one person is extremely exaaggerated.
