Excellent hotel for holiday getaway
The hotel staff was very family. It was like a homestay. The place is cosy and the location is good near a lot of eating places. Lovely stay will come back again

Great Affordable Accomodations
This hotel was quiet, affordable, and comfortable. The neighborhood is safe, but still a bit under construction, and didn't seem to offer much besides hotels, restaurants and places to drink. Parking was free at the hotel. Having a car is a must if you want to use this hotel. Besides free Wifi, there was a computer in the room to use for free. I would not hesitate to go back there.

쉬는날에는 조식없어요
체크인시, 무료조식에 대해 애기를 나눴는데, 다음날 아침 시간맞춰서 헐레벌떡 내려갔더니... 할리데이에는 조식이 없다고 먹고 있는 외국인들은 특별케이스라고 해서 이해하지만 조금 섭섭했어요. 조식을 주실것처럼 애기하셨는데, 미리 조식이 없다고 하셨으면 늦잠을 좀 더 자는건데

예약이 손해인 경우
호텔 예약시는 편리성과 접근성 안정성인데 가서 보니 모텔수준으로 가격제시내용이 많이다름.아침에 나오니 플랭카드에 숙박3만-5만 본인은 8만 7천원에 예약. 조식포함인데 주인이 일요일은 조식안하는데 간단히 토스트 해농을테니 먹고 가라함.아침 내려오니 배치안 되어 잇음.
