Please keep in mind that the pool is 20,000 ~ 30,000 won PER person PER day PER 3 hours. This is an absolute scam and I've never heard of a hotel charging more for the pool than the room.

3 person checked in but only 3 sets of towels otherwise it’s okay

Staff was smug and unhelpful. There was no bath towel, in the bath, so I asked the cleaning staff for some but they said the hotel does not provide bath towels. Can't believe a hotel like this does not have bath towels, so I called guest services on the phone and they repeated the same rhetoric. The hand towels were there but some smelled bad. On check out, I complained to the staff at the front desk and she said bath towels are supposed to be provided. What? It took me some effort to get them to call me and apologize, but their explanation did not make sense at all. Nice view of the ocean and Gangneung city scape though.

The property is in a fantastic location with an amazing view of the ocean or an amazing view of the city and surrounding mountains. Even if your room faces away from the ocean you will love the view. The room was clean and had all needed amenities the balcony was a very nice touch. It was disappointing to be charged $25 per day per person to use the infinity pool. In America, the use of the hotel pool is usually an included amenity. I would definitely stay here again.
