    Great location, lots of charm!
    The room and lobby was fantastic, but what stood out to us was the service. There was a young man behind the counter that went the extra mile trying to help us find a particular restaurant. Though he was not able to locate it on our GPS, it was not for want of trying. He actually offered to ride with us to the restaurant and take a taxi back to the hotel -- now that is customer service!!

    Air conditioner was not cooling. Restaurant is good for Koreans, terrible for westerners.

    Great for the location, really good for the stay.
    We stayed for two nights, and overall had a good experience. The atmosphere has a vintage, British royal feel with dark mahogany woodwork and British touches throughout. The room itself had an incredible view, but obviously used to be a smoking room and had some tar on the wallpaper and lamp. The bed was king-sized, but composed of two twin beds pushed together...which, as a couple, made for an awkward sleep for at least one of us. The breakfast was good, with a mix of western and Korean foods. There were a lot of great perks to this hotel. The location, obviously, can't be beat. The rooftop bar had a great selection of local craft brews and friendly staff. The ability to walk from this hotel to the park is the absolute best perk, and we were able to wake up early and refreshed every morning, enjoy a good breakfast, and hit the trails for a full day of hiking.
