Convenient and clean. Friendly reception staff. Great bath! A pity about the tiny and uncomfortable sofa - definitely need an upgrade. Otherwise, would thoroughly recommend.

Quite good place to stay.
가족여행으로 들렀던 곳이었는데, 전반적으로는 괜찮은 숙소였습니다. 단 한두 가지 마음에 걸리는 것은 처음 숙소를 안내해 줄 때 직원이 저희 숙소 안으로 신발을 신고 들어오더군요. 숙소는 바닥에 카펫이 깔려져있었고, 저희 가족은 숙소 안에서는 신발을 신고 지내지 않는데, 이곳 문화인지는 모르겠지만 그 부분이 좀 불편했습니다. 그리고 숙소내 몇몇 전열기구들이 잘 작동되지 않는 것들(오븐,거실히터)도 있어서 그런 부분들도 좀 불편 했네요. 하지만 직원들이 아주 친절했고 숙소도 꽤 괜찮았던 것 같습니다.
