Lake Hills Hotel Songnisan Boeun-gun Reviews
The only reasonable hotel option in Songnisan NP Oct 12, 2014
N36°32.068 E127°49.561 Lake Hills Hotel is known to be the best place to stay near Beopjusa temple and hiking trails in Songnisan NP. It is the only accommodation worthy to use the title "hotel". Some motels use the title "hotel", but do not come close. Without real competition from minbaks and budget motels, prices are high. They asked KRW 170.000 a night for a double room. In low season in August 2014, we settled for KRW 85.000.
Staying in South-Korean hotels before, we got the impression that hotel maintenance and housekeeping is not up to the level of Western or Japanese hotels. The lobby looks fine but on closer inspection, the building is ageing. The same with our room 701: good first impression but lack of due care and attention to detail made us readjust our first impression. It is all a bit dated and worn. The bathroom should have easily been better cleaned. The double bed was clean and slept very well. The room has air-conditioning, fridge and flat screen television. Only Wi-Fi in the lobby.
In the hospitality department, Lake Hills Hotel excels except on one thing: no free pick-up from or drop-off at the bus terminal. Everything else is superb. Mr. Kim spent 30 minutes working on Korean public transport websites to improve our travel schedule and he found two much better onward connections. Thanks, Mr. Kim.
Lake Hills Hotel is not budget but is the only escape from shabby motels and minbaks in Songnisan NP. Staff is excellent. Recommended.
