A really affordable accomodation. We went there with a 10-people-group. Allthough the 2 rooms are recommended for 4 + 4 people, the owners were really understanding with our situation. The owners were actually really helpful and warm towards us. They offered us a never ending supply of water bottles aswell. The location was great for exploring Danyang. 5 mins away...

We stayed twi nights at the RIO 127 the room was small but sufficient would be nice to have a small table as only a bed in the room. No tea or coffee provided in the room. Clean and convienient to bus station.

We liked our stay because we have arrived at the bus terminal, and we wanted to leave early for our trip to the mountains. The Rio127 Guesthouse is close to the bus station for the gorgeous National Park. It was no problem that the cafe in the house does not open early. We got all we needed for our breakfast...

We stayed in room 302, which has a lovely view on the river. The room is pretty small, but highly OK for the price we paid (40.000 Won/night). We had a strong wifi signal in our room (but not the guesthouse's wifi). The cafe downstairs is amazing, beautifully decorated and with a lovely terrace. The bed seems to be much...

For the amount we paid, we got more than we bargained for! An awesome cafe located at the entrance greeted us in the day when we checked in. The lady at the counter was friendly and knowledgeable about what we could do and explore in and around Danyang. I'm not entirely sure if she speaks English tho, as we communicated...

They changed the name recently to RIO 127. Good location right around the corner from the bus-station. Rooms are fine, breakfast not included. They run a Café with outside seating and a wonderful view across the river. Great chocolate and korean sweet stuff. Restaurants around the corner too.
