    Great hotel. Clean and efficient service. Not for long stay because rooms are very small. Breakfast is good. One of the unlucky things is that elevators are so slowly and take to much time to come when you call. On weekends when is full is worst.

    « The best hotel at Pohang »

    A nice hotel with nice rooms with great views of the beach, port, steel works of pohang, reasonable rates, decent breakfast, efficient front desk, a nice Coffee bean and tea coffee shop in the ground floor, nice location just across the beach

    « Good hotel in a great location »

    The Best Western is located along the harbor and is within walking distance to a large number of restaurants and bars. The rooms are modern and clean and the staff is very helpful and attentive. There are about three English language TV channels: CNN, CCTV International, and a movie channel. Bathrooms are clean and the water pressure in the showers are excellent. An electric water pot comes with each room to make complementary instant coffee or tea. Parking is free and located on the basement levels, be sure to take a picture of your license plate to show the staff so they can enter the number into the visual recognition system. Overall the Best Western is the best hotel in Pohang and a great value coming in at under US$100 at the time of this writing.

    « Nice biz hotel with good view and spacious room »

    Very good view and spacious room size but I do not recommend the breakfast. The food was not good considering the cost-effectiveness. You can easily find the restaurant and coffee shops near to the hotel.

    « Good rooms and nice view »

    ROOM Furnishing: looks really good Cleanness: is perfect Room size: is spacious Bed: comfortable Wi-Fi: free and fast HOTEL Personal: very friendly Breakfast: good, but bread, juices and fruits could be more Location: directly at the sea. Nice view. Steel plant is lighted nicely during night, I have chosen this hotel, because visited Posco Pohang

    « Best accommodation in Pohang »

    This hotel is quite new in city located on beach front. Easy to access to convenient store, restaurants and beach. Entire facilities are so new and clean. But per it is not a five star hotel, foods were so so but the view from B/F restaurant was nice. Although it does not have a pool, this hotel also would be nice choice for a family esp. in summer coz you can enjoy beach closely. Cons... the room was a bit tiny.

    « Great view of the East Sea! »

    This was a great place to sleep and enjoy the view of the ocean in Pohang. The beds were extremely clean and comfortable. Each room has a lovely view of the ocean. Service was professional and prompt. Sadly, there are not a lot of options around the hotel for breakfast (we walked for a long time in search of food), and we were pretty much forced to eat at the breakfast buffet which did not offer a satisfactory selection of food. The restaurant has a wonderful view, but the food was very processed and not very appetizing.

    « Best hotel in pohang »

    I've tried all big hotels in pohang and in conclusion, the best Western is the best hotel in town. Rooms are clean and new and the breakfast is very good. The hotel is surrounded by a lot of restaurants and located directly at the beach.

    « One of my home away from home »

    Yet another home away from home. Nice hotel, rooms are in good condition, bathroom with shower or bathtub. Ac is hot during winter time and only cold during summer. Staff is always smiling and pleasant to talk to. Breakfast is simple but good. The coffee shop In first floor has really good coffee. But it is quite expensive. 5000 won for a cop of black coffee.

    « A reasonable price for a reasonable hotel, but food requires improvement. »

    It's a Best Western, hence basic quality is absolutely not that bad: clean room with sufficient space, large shower, etc. Unfortunately just one internal restaurant, with limited selection of western food (and not even cheap): this definitely calls for improvement.

    « No Diamond status perks and disappointing customer service »

    There is no free perks for diamond status. The room tempature can only be set either AC summer & heat in winter. If the room getts too hot no way to cool down. Do not sleep in the ondols because the mats are very thin and hard to get extra matts.

    « decent hotel with a nice ocean view but a bit too pricey »

    It's a newly built, and biggest hotel in the area. All rooms are ocean-views are very clean. But it's 2 times more expensive than the other hotels in the area. Higher rooms are better because the views of some lower-floor rooms are blocked.

    « They improved the food! »

    I've reviewed this hotel before, but I felt I needed to revise since the last visit. I don't stay at Best Westerns normally, I feel comparing it to other chains would be unfair. So I'll just tell you liked it is. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The view is superb! And the location is excellent. The rooms are on the small side but not uncomfortably small. Wifi is free and the signal is great. Free tea and coffee service is provided. My original review commented on how much I did not like the food. Since then they have done away with the buffet and all the over sweet dishes. What they have now is a small selection of western type meals that area very good! I tired the salmon and the filet and was very pleased! It was not over sweet, portion sizes were perfect, and I was relieved to have a good meal in Pohang at last. Also, the salad bar was included in the price.

    « Probably the best view in Town »

    Very modern hotel with a great view of the beach and waterfront. The rooms are a bit small and no platform to keep a suitcase. The wifi was great with speeds close to 40 Mbps. Breakfast was decent spread though repetitive. The other meals are pricey and lacking in variety.

    « Good stay in Pohang »

    I was in Pohang for a business trip. I had to stay there for three nights. The hotel is located next to the shore, just a road in between. My room was on 16th floor with a pretty exiting view over the bay. During the night POSCO Steel plant is illuminating its facilities which looks even more impressing. The hotel its not older than one year. All is new and in good condition. Its clean, quiet and the WiFi is working decent. All in all the rooms are relatively small. If you have to work often in the room it's may advisable to upgrade to a suite. Breakfast is of good quality and rich but i missed omelettes and orange juice. You can get dinner in the hotel but I never tried. Just around the corner you find many restaurants of different choices. The staff was friendly, helpful and more or less English speaking. I liked the hotel and would certainly book it again for a stay in Pohang.

    « Amazing views, expensive breakfast »

    We had a room on the 18th floor and the views out over the bay and beach were beautiful. The room is very nice, modern and clean with good amenitites- tea/coffee, wifi etc. We had breakfast in the restaurant and the food was decidedly average. We LOVE Korean food, but this was very westernised and not a lot of choice, and very very expensive.

    « By the beach! »

    This is a good Best Western, I'm not an expert on Best Westerns. The Wi-Fi is free and had a good signal. I love being close to the beach! The view of the beach is one of the best in Pohang. You had tea and coffee service for free in the room. The rooms were very tidy. I did not like the restaurant, and felt the price was kind of high. Not sure if that is a fair statement, I really don't like Korean food and find they poor way too much sugar in everything! In keeping with Korean pallet they were spot on... Everything was really sweet.
