Pros: The room was spacious and well appointed. Servicing was regular and detailed. Power points were ok..bathroom and amenity counter were obvious. Breakfast service hours were generous and the breakfast buffet had everything you could want.
Cons: Breakfast was a bit pricey but that’s to be expected in better hotels. I wish there had been a power point nearby to the bed that was easier to spot. I dislike having to rearrange the furniture to find the needed point.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was fantastic. There were many restaurants nearby and there was also a supermarket next block. Very convenient location.
Cons: The hotel can use a bit of an update. It felt a bit old. Also, I did not appreciate that the hotel did not advise their foreign customer of the tax refund availability. I lost out on that because I found out about it after I left Korea. It could have saved me a bundle since I was there for 10 nights with two rooms.

Cons: The hotel rooms can use an update. It felt a bit dated and tired. I also did not appreciate the fact that they did not inform their foreign customers about the tax rebate.

Also the auto-light outside the bathroom automatically comes on if you get up in the night like a search light so your partner gets woken up too. Breakfast were traditional Korean food, with a white toast and jam alternative. Some fruit fir foreign travellers would have been great. No wardrobe or anywhere to hang clothes other than a coat rack. Comfortable chairs in the room would have been a bonus - but the massage chair was fun!
Madrid Hotel Gwangju - Gwangju - Building

6.0 Good
Cons: The bed was quite hard
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff are very kind and reliable Room is clean and quiet.
7.5 Good
Pros: The hotel is nice and clean. You can actually see the hotel from Gwangju-songjeong train station, about 5-8 mins walk. The subway is next to the train station. There are shops and eateries nearby and the 1913 market is within walking distance though twice we walk past, most of the shops at 1913 were closed and it was only 8pm. They have a closet which can air/dry your clothes (very high tech) and also a whirlpool tub in the bathroom. They served smoked duck for breakfast, first time I had in many of the hotels I stayed before.
Cons: The staff spoke little English. There were 3 of us in the room but they only gave us 2 sets of everything. I called and asked for one more set of towels and toothbrush , the staff brought me a comb and a face towel. Told him I needed more the bath towel and toothbrush not a comb. Next day when I told the reception to provide us with 3 sets of towels, she apologized that each room is usually prepared for 2 guests and hence they missed out the third guest. The bathroom light will auto off after some time so if you spent a long time in the bathroom, you will have to ask whoever is outside to switch on the lights or if you are alone, to step out to switch it on again. They should use motion signal. There were 4 pillows on each bed but they were all very high. It would be better if they provide difference heights/thickness instead of all the same pillow type. They also do not loan you umbrellas but they put those plastic umbrellas outside the lobby for sale (maybe too many people borrowed and never return).

Cons: NIL
7.1 Good
Pros: The price including breakfast is reasonable.
Cons: It probably depends on the room but mine was kind of no windows. Precisely, the room has windows but they are equipped in a weird way with mirrors. Well... difficult to explain and describe. The area is full of restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs for locals but FAR from tourist spots.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Outstanding!
Cons: Nothing
5.8 Okay
Pros: The only good thing about Hotel Duzon are its ever smiling, very helpful staff. The location was good, as we were 1.5kms away from our point of interest (Nambu University). Shops, Supermarkets and Restaurants nearby. Cleanliness is good, and cleaning staff offer any amount of supplies you need.
Cons: The Hotel was way too expensive for what it has to offer. We stayed in a 5 star hotel at the sam price in Seoul! Breakfast is simple and standards are fair. Sadly that's the only meal they serve. Eggs & Sausage is the only Western option. Family room is too small and claustrophobic! Sleeps 4, but thankfully we were only 2. Bath tub is tiny and offers no shower option. Hand shower too short and inconvenient for anyone above 5.5ft in height.
9.6 Excellent

Pros: The rooms were clean, had a Styler which steams your clothes. The boss was very nice and showed us the room and the facilities. The free breakfast was also very good. Free water is provided.
Cons: Beds are hard as the floor. The neighborhood is not so good - I would not say family friendly. It is next to a highway (but you couldn't hear from your room). As soon as you walk in you walk into a parking lot and there is a small lobby to check in. If you want a real hotel experience then I'd reserve an actual hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are huge, immaculately clean, and have been furnished with careful thought and detail, soaring no expense. Also, the rooms have their own massage chairs and cleaning wardrobes perfectly tailored for business travelers. You can feel the thoughtfulness that were put into each room. The hotel well exceeded my colleague and my expectations in every way. The owner personally made us coffee and sandwiches to send us off although we were too late for breakfast. He was so incredibly personable and accommodating, and his care and concern for his hotel and guests are genuine and touching. I could not recommend more.
Cons: Nothing-the hotel simoly exceeds every expectation.

Cons: Despite the hotel being almost empty, they put me in a room at a level below some renovation works. They started drilling early in the morning. When I called the reception, they promised to check it out but didn't do anything. On check out, I asked them one more time but they just smiled and said they are sorry and cannot do anything about it. Well, you can put your guests away from renovation especially when you have 13 floors of guest rooms and you hotel is not even 50% busy during the week.

6.7 Good
Pros: Very very clean. Nice design
Cons: The staff speaks very poor English, even if they try their best to be helpful. Bathroom on 6th floor got stuck a couple of times, they fixed after a while.

I called and asked for one more set of towels and toothbrush , the staff brought me a comb and a face towel. Told him I needed more the bath towel and toothbrush not a comb. Next day when I told the reception to provide us with 3 sets of towels, she apologized that each room is usually prepared for 2 guests and hence they missed out the third guest. The bathroom light will auto off after some time so if you spent a long time in the bathroom, you will have to ask whoever is outside to switch on the lights or if you are alone, to step out to switch it on again. They should use motion signal. There were 4 pillows on each bed but they were all very high. It would be better if they provide difference heights/thickness instead of all the same pillow type. They also do not loan you umbrellas but they put those plastic umbrellas outside the lobby for sale (maybe too many people borrowed and never return).

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic room, everything clean and posh. The staff were lovely and valet parking is a dream.
Cons: I've had slightly better value for money in Korea at this price point.
1.0 Poor
Pros: Rooms are quite big and had LG Styler - closet-contraption designed to de-wrinkle, deodorize and sanitize your clothes. Bathroom is spacios and had jet bathtub - always good to have.
Cons: Despite the hotel being almost empty, they put me in a room at a level below some renovation works. They started drilling early in the morning. When I called the reception, they promised to check it out but didn't do anything. On check out, I asked them one more time but they just smiled and said they are sorry and cannot do anything about it. Well, you can put your guests away from renovation especially when you have 13 floors of guest rooms and you hotel is not even 50% busy during the week.

10.0 Excellent

Cons: Breakfast was poor
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and modern.
