    The best employee

    The front desk lady was super professional and kind. I wish the best for her to be promoted so that other new employees would be managed and learned how to be good employee like her.

    Perfect for a couple/ business/ friends to stay. We enjoyed the city view with distant Mudeungsan mountain view as well. It was nice to wake up seeing a beautiful sunrise over the mountain. Bed was comfortable however triple room is a little small for three adults to stay but fit for two with a kid. Staffs were so kind and attentive. Breakfast was good too

    엘레베이터 문제

    스위트룸인데 5층에 있네요 고층을 원했는데 결국 이게 문제가되는군요 좀 비싸긴했지만 시설이나 편리함은 중이상이긴 했어요 잘 쉬다 오긴했지만 엘리베이터는 문제가 심각합니다 엘베가 3개인데 퇴실할때 11시에 우르르 체크아웃이 겹치기때문에 5층에 숙박한 저희가족은 무려 25분을 기다렸네요 31층까지 있기때문에 만석이라 몇번을 그냥 보냈는지 모르겠네요 20분을 땀을 흘리며 기다리다 이래서는 도저히 못타겠다 싶어 위로 올라가는 버튼을 눌러29층까지 갔다가 내려왔습니다 층마다 엘베가 서서 로비까지 내려오는데 5분넘게 걸려 코시국에 좁디좁은데서 시원하지도 않고 땀 질질 흘리면서 내려왔네요 어찌나 화가 나는지 룸이좋으면 뭐하나요 기본인 엘베가 이모양인데 또 오고 싶었는데 엘레베이터 때문에 마음이 바꼈네요 정말최악입니다

    전반적으로 만족합니다

    가격대가 좀 있었지만 주말치고는 괜찮았아요! 살짝만 더 저렴하면 자주 이용할꺼같긴한데 그점이 조금 아쉽긴했지만 룸 컨디션도 너무좋고 무료미니바도 너무 만족스러웠어요 조식은 추가해서 먹긴했지만 나쁘진 않았습니다 호텔에서 룸서비스로 2층에있는 식당에서 주문해서 먹을 수 있는점도 마음에들었어요 다음에는 이용해보려구요
