10/10 Exceptional

Great location in the Sangmu area. Close to the subway, which is halfway between the KTX and the Bus Terminal (about 5-7 minutes to each). Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby, and a short walk to 5/18 Memorial Park.

Affordable stay
Was on a business trip and check in to the hotel. Overall stay was pleasant but do not expect too much from the room. If you are on a budget this hotel is great. Else go for other hotel with better comfort.

A lovely and very reasonable hotel in Gwangju! The breakfast was a nice bonus as well, you have to pay a little extra but it come with a choice of Korean or American, sometimes Mediterranean, styles. I would definitely recommend!

6/10 Good

Checked into first room, gave us wrong room. Had to move to next room, and door didn't work... so we had to move again. Currently in the third room (after hours) and we found that the bed has blood stains, and the robes have a big strange yellow stain. The towel has 4 holes (3 big and 1 small). So it's not clean and probably too late to change/ fix it(especially when we already changed 3 times). The original check in took about 30mins. Overall me and my friends dislike this hotel, especially for the price.
