I usually stay at another big hotel brand in Gwangju Chipyeong-dong area and this is my first time to try HI Gwangju. I was hesitant at first because of the numerous reviews I've read about the location being quite inconveniently not near areas of interest.
It's a very good thing I tried the hotel. What it lacks of being in close proximity of your typical restaurants and shopping places, it most definitely made up for it with the excellent service and professionalism of the entire staff.
From the concierge, check-in counter, breakfast team, housekeeping and to the lobby lounge staff, they certainly won us over.
I frequent the area for business trip and this time I had my wife tag along with me due to the extended almost 3weeks length of my stay. I was concerned that she’ll get bored and impatient being in a hotel for that long and quite a distance away from places she might be of interests. Instead she learned from the staffs from the lobby (concierge and front desk) the ways around of public transportation available.
Armed with a street map and subway line schedule, she practically mastered her way around Gwangju and enjoyed the experience.
Our breakfast experience wouldn't be as special had not been for the fantastic team of Ms Jiang (I hope i'm saying it correctly) such as Sonny, Soji and also the chef.
Housekeeping was great and very accommodating of my request to always give us at least a couple of extra bottled water.
The concierge and front desk team are bar none very helpful and friendly. Just amazing. Mr Grant, Max, Mathew, Jacob, Thomas, Louis, and everyone else I can’t remember their names (my apologies) are just extremely professional.
The team at the lobby lounge by Soji is just amazing. She’s been very helpful and professional.
All I know is that the wife was very happy and grateful of the services and courteous attention they showed us.
The restaurants and shopping area are not all that far if you don’t mind a nice 15minute or so walk which is not that bad at all. The area is very safe even at late nights to walk around.
The hotel is no more than 10minute walk form the KDJ subway station. From there it’s only a skip and a hop to KWJ airport, Chungjang-ro street shopping or even to other local areas along the same subway line. It’s only KW1.2k per ride regardless where you get off.
Taxi fares from the hotel to just about anywhere near non-walking distance for shopping or eating is no more than KW10k
All in all the HI Gwangju did not disappoint, not at all. We’re really glad we tried this hotel on this trip.
Only draw back that really hit it was the AC. I was told being still in the winter season, the hotels does not turn on the AC instead you'll only use circulating air. Often times it's not enough though, all's good other than that.
We’ll definitely stay here again on next Gwangju business trip or even personal holiday visit.
