    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!

    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.

    좋았습니다.

    숙소는 약간 좁았지만 깨끗하고 좋았습니다. 카운터도 친절했습니다. 아침의 조식도 간편하지만 정성스럽고 만족스런 식사였습니다.

    불편한 거 없었어요.

    출장지 숙박으로 머물었는데, 청결하고 편안하게 보냈어요. 건물이 오래된 느낌은 들었지만, 별 불편한 거 없이 1박 했습니다.

    더 스팟

    호텔은 괜찮은데. 주변에 모텔이 있어서 가족여행으로는..나중에 고민이 될것 같습니다. 담양도 멀지 않고 주변에 놀이공원도 가깝습니다.
