    • 2.0.Poor

      Underwhelming and disappointing.

      There were NO available parking spaces. We paid for a Premium room so I expected a good room with the temple view and bathtub, but all we got was a small shower room with a view of a dirty street. The facilities in the room look old (shower door is not shut tight so it leaks outside, molds on the ceiling, bidet is faulty), even though the room looks new on the surface.

      Rooms too hot

      It was fine, we really just needed a place to sleep, unfortunately they informed us that we could not adjust the air conditioner in our room, and I was roasting in there at night, extremely uncomfortable and kind of made it really annoying to try to sleep

      전반적으로 매우 만족했습니다! 그런데 배달음식을 시켜먹고 용기를 방에 두고싶지 않아서 버리고 싶었는데 분리수거(플라스틱) 안내가 없어서 아쉬웠습니다. 복도에서 만난 매이드분께 여쭈어봤더니 직접 버려 주신대서 복도에 내놓고 너무 감사하게 버려주셨지만 제대로 분리수거가 이루어지는지 궁금했습니다.

      Nice Area, Friendly Staff, Hot Room

      Room was nice enough, but the air conditioner was not working well. When we asked, we were told it was shut off or lowered from time to time to be green and save energy. I am all for saving energy, but not at the expense of it being 26-27 degrees in the room all night. The staff were very pleasant and breakfast was nice. All in all, it was a good stay.
