Great location and breakfast”

This hotel was just what my family was looking for. During Covid, we wanted to get away and seems like we found it. 15 min taxi ride to Gwangju airport. Close to the subway station. Nice gym and pool. The staff were friendly. Would go again soon.

Lovely hotel but too far from anything”

Rooms are spacious and lovely

Stayed here for two nights. The hotel is your typical Holiday Inn - nice, comfy and lovely. However the location of the hotel is pretty far from Gwangju Train Station (KTX) or even the Airport. Cab ride from the train station to the hotel cost ~15,000 won (avoid premier black cab!!). The nearest subway is 10 - 15 mins walk away from the hotel. There is absolutely minimal places on interests near the hotel. However, if you are looking for a base camp to settle for your day trips to Boseong (Green Tea Plantation), Gwangju is a goos place.

Pleasant except for 1 design feature...”

Convenient and quiet location, clean and spacious rooms.

We came to Gwangju to attend the Biennale. The hotel location was convenient--only a 5 minute walk from the metro, 1 stop from the airport, and a few stops from downtown. The Kim Dae Jung Convention Center area has little to offer in terms of restaurants or cafés, however. The room was clean, quiet, and we'll-appointed. However, the room and bathroom were separated only by a window with no blind or panel to cover it. This created an awkward lack of privacy!!! Besides this design feature, and the presence of mosquitos the room, no complaints.

In principle, the hotel was good. The room was comfortable and clean. The hotel staff was kind. Especially the breakfast, the president of this hotel was wandering around the dining and generally managing oversee *if you need a baby bed(bassinet), you should mention or make a reservation for using before your arrival.

Highly accessible from the Kim Dae Jung Convention Center Station if you're in town for a meeting. Otherwise, it is a little bit far from restaurants and commercial establishments. Breakfast had plenty of choices. Staff very attentive. Had room service twice and servings were aplenty.

Nice rooms and good facilities”

Comfy beds, nice bathrooms, good bar

A little out of the way, I thought it was more central, however it is handy for the airport and taxis are very cheap. The room was good, nice coffee machine, good services. We had a terrible breakfast in our room, cold and not what it was supposed to be. After talking with the manager we were refunded, however, it was a bad start to our day. Pool and Korean sauna were nice, good drinks served in the bar.

Very clean and comfortable room. Was a little disappointed that they don't have any 24 hour running food service facilities on and or near this hotel. We arrived a little too early for dinner, but were a little hungry and there was nothing open to buy anything. We did have the Saturday night buffet on the main floor. Good selection and reasonable price.
