One of the best in Asia, A Great Example of Korean Hospitality
Our company chose this hotel for a big meeting. I have never heard of the hotel before this time. I felt strange when I received my confirmation, but it was all gone when I first stepped into the hotel. I am only left with great experience and deep appreciation to everyone in this amazing hotel.
Transportation to the hotel: a luxury Korean car was waiting for me at the airport, very rare to see this car out of Korea, but very nice, great interior luxury and smooth ride, very polite drive. I was escorted from the car to the check in desk by a lady who knew my name! Very quick check in, I was in my room in no time.
Location: about one hour drive from Incheon airport. It is built on a mountain side which makes view from rooms very nice from all sides. very close to the night life district and shopping spots as well. No worries.
Room: it was a deluxe room with a king bed. Reasonably sized but it was a narrow and long rectangle, which is very tough to layout. For that, the TV was very far from the bed. And the working desk was next to the bed and facing the wall, making it imposable to use the desk and watch TV in the same time. Very clean and spot less, the furniture looks old fashioned and the bathroom is clean and nice but also very clear that it was built a very long time and I think it needs to be updated. Having said so, I must say that it is all very well maintained.
Food: I ordered in-room service and tried the buffet for breakfast and the formal dinners with the company which was done by the hotel as well. I must say it was top class in every aspect. Great food over all, just don’t miss the desert section near the buffet. One of the best dessert collection I have ever tasted.
I did not have the time to check the gym and the swimming pool, but they told me that they have both indoors and outdoors one.
