    Well appointed in Gwangju

    The Spot is new (in older building) with well appointed rooms and good service in a location that is OK in terms of restaurants. The river is nearby behind the hotel and one can walk or run for a long distance uninterrupted by traffic lights. There is a Lotte Mart store nearby that has a wide variety of fruit and other food items.

    Nice SPOT!

    Located in a rather "interesting" neighborhood of wall-to-wall "drive-in hotels", The Spot is a small, clean and modern hotel. Rooms are light and spacious, well air-conditioned and the included breakfast and dining area welcomed. The staff goes out of its way to remember your name and to accommodate, however requests were often "lost in translation". For example, each morning the front desk asked if I wanted my room cleaned. My response was "no need, but I would like my towels changed and the garbage taken out. Each day I received a large towel, however the rest remained unattended too; this however is a small matter compared with the overall comfort of the hotel. An added plus were the numerous convenience stores and the "Sandria Sandwich Shop" located across the street which we frequented while there. Another interesting feature is that the remote control is for everything - lights, aircon, television - in the room!

    최고입니다. 추천 또 추천합니다!

    출장 중 묵었던 숙소입니다! 1주일이상 숙박 시에는 청결을 가장 중요시 하는데 정말 청결하고 냄새도 나지 않아요. 청결도 뿐만 아니라 편안한 룸 인테리어, 서비스, 과하지도 부족하지도 않은 조식까지 완벽합니다. 다음에 또 방문 예정이에요. 추천합니다. 호텔 앞에 산책하기 좋은 공원이 있는것도 맘에 들어요!

    가격대비 훌륭합니다. 청결합니다. 조식은 가장 큰 장점 중의 하나입니다. 프런트는 매우 친절하지만, 식당에서 일하시는 아주머니는 웃는 모습이 아니며, 서비스 마인드가 부족합니다.

    친절하고 시설도 조식도 아주 좋았음. 다만 침대매트리스위에 비닐을 깔았는지 잘때 숙면을 취하기 어려웠음.

    친절하고 깨끗하고 조용함. 욕실도 만족. 공간은 크지 않은 편이고 벽에 옷걸이가 있으면 편하겠음.

    비지니스 호텔로 좋습니다.

    방은 크지않지만, 화이트톤에 청결해서 좋았습니다. 그리고, 주변에 바로 공원이 있어서 산책하기 좋습니다.
