Great stay - highly recommend.
My family of 5 stayed here for two night in May 2022. What a nice hotel! The staff was so friendly and went out of their way to take of us in any way we needed. The location is convenient and walking distance to subway station and taxis and buses are plentiful. The room was clean and modern and comfortable. The pool was also a nice touch and my kids had lots of fun there. If we are ever in Gwangju again, this will be our first choice for hotel - recommend you consider it too!
