    Excellent location

    Enjoyed this hotel. Very conveniently located a 2 minute walk from train station and subway station. Easy access from Mu An airport and Gwangju airport. Hotel was clean and rooms were spacious. Really liked the drycleaning machine in our room. My only 2 complaints were that breakfast was subpar and the hallways sometimes smelled of smoke. I would definitely stay here again though.

    Overall, couldn’t expect more for the price we paid. Location was very convenient to go eat and get around. The market close by was so fun to visit with many choices of new and traditional food choices. The room was quiet and bathroom was spacious.
