Probably the biggest - but not only - problem at this hotel can be pointed at the check-in process. Check in was announced to be starting at around 2:50pm, and all the guests were asked to wait at the bench in front of the counter without any check-in procedure explained. Check-in started quitely without announcement in the order of their discretion. (Initially I had no idea in what order they are processing the guests but they were calling the numbers time-to-time which I still had no idea what they were about.) After waiting for 30min+, I noticed that the number on the luggage tag might be my the one and checked with the guy handling the guest line, He said - “Ah yeah, but I already called the number snd you didn’t show up. “ Fair enough, may be it’s my ptoblem that I didn’t understand the number to be called in Korean, but you should tell the guests what the provided number is all about and pay attention to the number to be called. Clearly it’s not my responsibility to figure out what this old-fashined process from 70s is all about and the number on the small piece of paper in fact was the key to the room. Not sure why IHG global is letting them operate in such a poor mannerat the property with IC brand. P.S. A letter in the room ironically indicated that there was a ”dedicated” check-in / check-out area for “valued” guests. Show me if you really had such a nice thing, ;)

We had a wonderful stay. Well maintained property and exceptional staff, always go above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. A small incident happened during breakfast, staff quickly corrected and offered additional help as well. Can’t wait to come back again.
