Grand Plaza Cheongju4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is a very nice hotel and I enjoyed my stay very much. The Cons: -The location is a bit far from anything to do in Cheongju (20-30 minute taxi to the bus terminal/downtown, 15 minutes from the college bar/club area), and costs about 10,000won one way (which isn't a problem if you're splitting costs). You can take a city bus pretty easily, but still tack on lots of more time. -The first night (Friday) which I stayed, I wanted to relax and hit the Sky Lounge bar, so around 11:30/12am I went and it was closed. The next day I checked it out, and cocktails are 10,000won+, kinda steep. -You have to pay extra if you want to use any of their facilities: pool (11,000won for hotel guests and 22,000 for non-hotel guests), workout equipment, breakfast (18,000 won for guests.. :-\) The cost to stay at the hotel is much more expensive if done in person, so be sure to check out a room online! The Pros: - The hotel is SO clean and I slept incredibly well. - The entire staff was so nice. - The entrance hall is amazing and beautiful. Huge open area (however it does look rather empty, as not a lot of people stay at this hotel.. you can easily tell) The staff is super friendly and the entire weekend was a great experience. I think next time, however, I will go with a cheaper hotel and use the extra money on going out.
