Very Good8.0
Nice hotel, but got rooms
The location of this hotel is good. It was very quiet. The rooms were nice and big and the bathrooms lovely. The biggest problem was the a/c was turned off so there was zero air circulation. The window is tiny - maybe 1.5 feet by 1.5 feet and only opens about 2 inches. They front desk brought us a fan which did help. We were looking forward to a good nights clean at this hotel so we're disappointed in the lack of a/c. Our room was 25C and the kids room was 27C - too hot for sleeping. The breakfast was not good. It was a mixture of Korean and Canadian, but nothing was really tasty. The staff were good and the service was good.

Great location to Convention center
Great location to convention center and breakfast was OK. There are nothing to do in the area of the hotel. But it was good enough for the business trip.

noisy room
The staff and room were great, but the noise! We could hear music coming out of the vents (probably from the venues downstairs) until 1 am, and the airconditioning towers outside were humming and vibrating all day and night. Hotel rooms start on the 4th floor (where I was), so try to get a room as high up as possible. 4th floor rooms with odd numbers (which are on the south side) face the airconditioning towers, so do avoid! This was probably the noisiest hotel room I had ever been in. I had realized that the noises weren't from the next room too late to ask for a different room. I would guess that all rooms on the lower floors would be able to notice the vibrations, and this is a structural design flaw with the building itself.

Great stay in gwangju
It was great to stay there. The service, the room and the staffs, everything was nice. I had a car so it was convenient to move around the area, but even without it, the subway station is close enough to walk.
