Excellent location
Enjoyed this hotel. Very conveniently located a 2 minute walk from train station and subway station. Easy access from Mu An airport and Gwangju airport. Hotel was clean and rooms were spacious. Really liked the drycleaning machine in our room. My only 2 complaints were that breakfast was subpar and the hallways sometimes smelled of smoke. I would definitely stay here again though.
