We booked our rooms directly by emailing the hotel. Response time was reasonable and efficient. We were traveling from Seoul by bus and arrived at the express bus terminal in sokcho. Once you arrive at the express bus terminal, just walk towards the main road, cross the road and wait at the nearby bus stop. Wait for bus no. 1, 7 or 9. It costs KRW1,000 per pax and it is only about 5 minutes journey to the hotel. Please let the bus driver know so that he can give you a shout when it reaches the hotel. You need to walk about 3-5 mins from the bus stop to the hotel.
Hotel is located on a mini hill facing the ocean. Hotel looking good from outside as Sokcho is a small city in Korea. We were allowed to check in at 1pm which is perfect. Our rooms are of reasonable size, we had great ocean view, the beds are comfortable so does the bathroom. It does have a balcony which is great. Rooms are good, modern and classy. It does look like a 4 star-5 star room.
Hotel is located in the mid point to Seoraksan. So, it is a good base for those planning to hike in Mount Seorak as the bus stop to Seorak (on bus No. 7 or 7-1) is located about 3 mins walking from the hotel. It is about 20-30 mins journey to the base of Seoraksan.
We find this hotel very good and relaxing. It is also very convenient. Although it is located in sokcho city centre itself, we have no regrets as the hotel is facing the ocean.
The highlight of this hotel is to take its ocean view room (and you will get a good sunrise view in the morning which is amazing). The buffet breakfast which was included in our rate is also quite good with plenty of selections (mixture of international and korean). We have no issues on the breakfast.
Overall, would recommend this hotel if you are visiting sokcho or mount seorak.
