Susana from Canada

Standard Ondol Room
Stayed 2 nights in November 2018
Very good”
Overall, the place met our needs, i.e. a bed near Seoraksan . However we had to change rooms twice for different reasons. the first time because the floors were too hot in the ondol room we initially booked. They changed our room without hesitation to a standard king room when we asked to lower the heat. (They couldn't lower the temperature...) we had to switch out of the second room because during the night, water was coming out of one of the light fixtures in the bathroom, which short circuited the room's electricity. Scared and sleepy, we were switched again to a classic family room, where we ended our stay. The place is visibly run down, but the location cannot be beat.

Good location”
My room was standard ondol room and it wasn’t good as picture shown in Agoda. There was no small korean traditional tea/coffee table in the room. My room view was very ugly. But good enough for what I have paid. The lobby decoration was awesome but the toilet at the lobby very dirty. So shame.. Reception Staff was good. Location was perfect. 5 minutes walking to Seoraksan Mountain Entrance.

Location superb. Staff nice . Old hotel but well maintained . Breakfast food & time to be improve. ”
Everything ok . Love the cozy environment and decor at Abbey Road bistro and bar. Nice mountain view and music which you can stay hours there just to relax. However , food served can be better in variety and taste. Breakfast food to be improved and time should be up to 11am instead of 10am, so that we could have time for morning mountain hike then breakfast . Check out time also too early to set at 11am . Set at 12:30pm will be lovely for those morning hikers for breakfast and quick shower before check out. However, good that they allow luggage storage after check out .
