This is my third visit to this hotel and I can clearly see an improvement, rooms are getting a touch of modern style. The people at the front desk are extremely helpful and they offer Shuttle bus when you ask. The location along the River is very pleasant for a walk. The breakfast is still a point to be improved,...

The best thing about DongBang is the location, if you stay at a time of year to enjoy the broad riverside walk and the good views from the front of the property. There's a retro look and feel to the large reception area with a display cabinet selling silk ties. Rooms are just big enough for one, with a fridge... More

I spent one night here for business and this hotel is quite good. The room is big and clean even if a bit old. The breakfast is western style but a little bit too small. In the end nothing special but ok for business purpose.

With few options available in Jinju the Dong Bang Hotel is a good option. Breakfasts are small but okay. Overall the hotel is a good 3 Star hotel and located on the river bank for easy access throughout Jinju and a nice running track along the river banks.

On arrival I was greeted warmly by the receptionist and checked in quickly with no issues. The room had a nice view which looked out onto the river and... More

This hotel has seen better days, but altogether the atmosphere is pleasant, the desk is well manned and everybody is nice and friendly. The coffee shop offers a good selection, the breakfast does not offer a big selection, but it was sufficient for me. The bathrooms are OK. The carpet in the rom was not perfectly clean, but I could... More

Only thing is still good, they provide a free airport transfer and for business traveller, they provide a free transport... More

Hotel location is great, very near to the riverside where you can bike around in the morning or in the afternoon. Rooms are OK, western standard. You can even request for a Korean style bedroom. Even if the hotel seems scary at first, you'll feel very at home after the first night. plenty of english channels. Staff members are very... More

Good things - nice comfortable room with an ok sized bathroom. Water boiler with coffee and teas available as well as an adequate minibar. A very high-tech washing-and-blowdrying toilet. They've been around for a while, but I never expected to find one in a hotel. Good water pressure in the shower. From room 701, I had quite a nice view,... More
