First, I am unsure why there is a fee to access the pool. This is a facility of the hotel and you have to pay an additional 20k won a person to access the pool and 30k to access it in the evenings. This is bizarre to me and soured our taste at the property once we realized this. Besides the additional cost to a 100k won/night room, the facility and room were nice. The bathrooms are all white, per the pictures, and every room generally has an incredible view of the marina. There are adequate shops under and around the hotel with a CU/Tom&Toms/Coffee shop/restaurants on sight and within the locality. There is also plenty of space to walk around the marina due to the Expo facilities. However, the hotel had a few room issues. With the white bathroom, dirt was easier to spot and there was a tough of mold in the showers. The aircon was my biggest complaint as it rattled all night making noise. It was not consistent noise but rather the compressor rattling and humming which kept me awake for a but. Also there is a big green light on the aircon which literally light the room up once all the lights/shades were shut. Check in and employees were nice and spoke great English. However, Yeosu is somewhat of a ghost town now post Expo. It was a fun trip but look elsewhere for a better time (Namhae).

First the good. It's a nice looking hotel. Employees were very friendly. The room we were in had a great view of the harbor. It had a huge refrigerator and the bathroom had all of the toiletry items you needed free. WIFI is fast and easy to access. There was a veranda that overlooked the harbor with bistro table and chairs. There are USB, charging station, and computer/phone jacks everywhere. Nice touch! Now the bad. The price, roughly $160, for a one night stay was very expensive. Unfortunately I had allowed my wife to coordinate for, and pay for, the room. Normally she does very well shopping but she doesn't haggle on prices. The room is standard size. Our room had 2 standard size beds. The pillows were pathetic but there are 8 of them to choose from. All of them. either go flat when used or have a cloth covering that is rough 120 grit. The TV is small for the room. The beds were made ... but I'm not sure if the person making the beds really understands how the hotel business works. Both beds looked like someone simply pulled the blankets back up in the morning after a nights sleep. I had to look to make sure they were clean. The bathroom had the shower mat already down on the floor. We've never seen that anywhere before. The shower had a brown crust in all the corners and the sink looked like something had been left on the surface. It was just rough. All of the USB ports didn't work. I wanted to go out on the veranda just to look but as soon as I opened the door I was met with hairs from previous occupants blowing into the room. It was pathetic. The chair for the desk was OK but there was no silicone slides on the feet and it made a lot of noise every time you moved in the chair. YOU CAN HEAR EVERYTHING FROM THE ROOMS THAT SURROUND YOURS!!!! Kids were running up and down the hallway until late at night. At one point I was beginning to think all the rooms were having a community party in the hall way but they didn't invite us for some reason! I would recommend that everyone take a closer look at other hotels before booking here.

First night here was pretty miserable. We were placed in the 22nd floor in a room that smelled like the sewers. We assumed it will dissipate over time and what not and tried to ignore it till the next day. Do you know how it feels like to wake up to smelling garbage and sewers in the morning? Yeah, no. We further sent a complaint saying hey, it's actually kind of unbearable, can we move to a different room? They instead sent up someone to check if there actually is a smell to validate a room change, sure whatever. The man goes in the bathroom and looks around for a good five minutes not doing much and comes out saying, hey it actually does smell pretty bad and he suggested we call front desk and figure it out and he left. So we did the obvious and they moved us to a nearby room. It actually didn't smell like crap. So we stayed for another night, and I wish we didn't. We left the hotel room to go on our little tour thing, come back to our room to find our our hotel key doesn't work. We went back down to the first floor (I'll emphasize this later why going back and forth is a big deal) and they berated us basically saying, hey YOU forgot to update your key when adding additional day. Sure, once gain, whatever. Later we went to a little night cruise and when coming back we actually lost one of our wallets that contained our hotel key/credit card/drivers license. We went to the front desk to tell them our issue and if we can grab another hotel key. There was actually no sense of sympathy and they demanded 10,000 WON for the hotel card as we were frantically calling our CC companys and DMV to renew/cancel our current card. I felt like our stay here was pretty stressful. I'm pretty sure you'll end up with better place at a different hotel near by with better breakfast options. Oh the elevator thing. There's two elevators that goes to the guest rooms. There are 23 floors. Expect waiting at least 10-15 minutes getting into one. The taxi that you take don't like to take you to the front of the hotel either because it's a little complicated and annoying to get in and out. A lot of commuters in this hotel as well, I haven't seen a lot of foreigners. It is a new hotel, there are a few amenities that are not available. All in all, no thanks.
