With more modern hotels springing up all around town, this one seems a tad stuck in a time trap. It does what it does as it no doubt always has. An executive room was spacious and sumptuous in a rather tacky way, but giving no great offence. The dining room however was uninspiring both in atmosphere and cuisine.
If you were a tired, overworked family man from Seoul, and you just wanted to take the wife and kiddies away for a night or two, this place might fit the bill. There's a nice pool, restaurants, games for the kids, and of course a sauna; the rooms are clean and up to date. Yet if you are not from South Korea, this place offers you nothing authentic, unless your definition of "authentic" is "what pleases an exhausted, underpaid salaryman from Seoul." On my first night here, I was looking out my window, and saw a young boy fall in the river and drown while trying to fish. Always, my heart aches; bless all souls, bless all spirits. I can write no more.
