2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Beautiful location, but the hotel is very outdated and looks as if it has never been updated. The first room was very dirty and had a terrible smell. The staff was very quick to address our request to change rooms, and they were very polite. Overall the hotel is fairly run down, and not in good shape. The views are nice, but the design of the hotel makes it awkward to see the sights outside (not a straight or clear view to the mountains). Great location, but I would recommend looking elsewhere to stay. The breakfast buffet was ok, not great, but good enough.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location is amazing. My room has a view of the mountains just like the resort hotels I remember from growing up in Colorado. The Seoraksan main entrance is a five minute walk away. Solid food options at the hotel, and cheaper options available at the convenient store outside the parking lot.

Cozy old european style hotel with amazing view
It's a lovely authentic hotel with old european vibes. Great stay but sadly two of the restaurants were closed due to COVID 19. I'd definitely come back after the pandemic
