Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ideal place when visiting our sun at Kaist university, and the unique central location of the city of Daejeon in South Korea. Rooms spacious and luxurious. Worth mentioning: beds, bathroom, linen, laptop,... Very friendly staff (ask for Leslie). Only one main point of improvement: breakfast was poor.

Staying overnight while moving throughout Korea, we were really satisfied with this hotel.
Clean, recent with spacious rooms. Regarding the price we paid, this was thr perfect deal and it's really pissing me off when I'm thinking how much we would have to pay such rooms back in France...
I'll definitely come again if I need to stay in Daejon!

In conclusion, it is the best value for money. The exterior looks a bit odd because it's a renovated motel hotel... but the rooms are spacious and the bathroom is clean and spacious and has a bathtub. The bedding is good and the heating and cooling works well. I also requested and ate breakfast, and I was very satisfied with the price. And there were many families using it, so it was comfortable. Recommended if you are looking for a cost-effective family hotel.
If I come to Daejeon again, I will come here again.

Modern interior and nice, comfortable rooms - looking freshly renovated. Breakfast was not good - very limited choice and cold dining area. Many shops and restaurants around the hotel, walking distance to metro station.

I regard a luxury hotel to be more than just clean sheets, scented soaps and a bathtub, although those do help. Free wi-fi, which this hotel offers, helps, and the fact that they have a laptop in the rooms so that you don't have to bring your own is also nice.
What I want is the amenities I have at home - TV that works and is not pay per view (as this is), coffee and tea as I feel and need, in cups and with proper spoons to stir, not little pieces of paper that curl up as they hit the heat. When I see two sticks of mixed instant coffee, two packets of tea, no sugar, no creamer, and most importantly, no spoons, I start getting antsy.
For people who don't regard that as important, the rooms are great, the beds offer a good night's sleep, and the bathrooms are lovely. The rooms that have a terrace will be great in summer - a private little open air yet private space. Such a pity about the TV.
