Stayed a few nights on a business trip in Ansan-Si where is an industrial area, one hour away from Incheon Airport. Frankly, there is not much expectation for this hotel since it is located off the city centre with no 5-star hotel in the area.
First impression the room is small and clearly it needs a renovation to renew its 20 year-old design (see uploaded photo). The amenities are limited and it does not have clothes iron. I went to reception with the hope to borrow one but the staff told me to get the clothes ironed by laundry department with charges. What a joke! The room equipped with a fridge, a kettle with 2 bottles of water which are complementary and no coffee or teabag. That's it.
The room that I stayed has a leaking ceiling at the toilet.
The room that I stayed comes with breakfast and nothing worth mentioning as choices are limited.
Of all the negative aspects of this hotel, the room is clean and location is great. There are a lot of food establishments within walking distance and a convenience store is just opposite of the hotel. Also, there are a couple rows of shops selling sports wear and winter clothing which can be reached within 15 minutes on foot.
I read both of the previous reports and they could not be further apart. However I can understand both to some extent.
I spent 2 nights here and can say the following....
The position of this hotel is more in the industrial part of Seoul - Ansan. As such, it is not a place (Ansan) where I would come for a romantic break. There are no 5 * hotels here ´
The rooms are small and need renovating but I have seen much worse.
Regardind cleanliness - the rooms are clean, after reading the previous report I have taken a close look and they are fine.
The staff are friendly and helpful
The price is OK and the hotel is basically as good as what I have paid for
I visited many places, but never have been to the place dirtier than this. Looks like the room was not cleaned for a veeeeeeeeery long time, we had to sacrifice one of a towels and to clean it by ourselves!!! As a bonus, what you get doesn't match the description given on the site. It was rated #1 in Ansan, one of the reason we've chosen it, and I sincerely hope that is not true because otherwise this city is in for a big trouble. There is no difference between smoking and non-smoking rooms, the first room given to us was non-smoking but smelled disgusting. The other one was on the same floor, didn't smell that bad, but that was the one we had to clean.THERE IS NO ANY BATHTAB IN THE BATHROOM, although this is what is promised in the description. The room didn't have a chair and/or a table, only two hangers in the closet, just one bath towel for two people, but worst of all the room was really, really dirty...Hope to neve see this place again.
