"Business in Pohang"


The hotel is quite new, therefore very nice. Good location at the beach. I can recommend this hotel in general. The price absolutely correct. Coffe-bar besides but no lobby-bar. No wellness area. Some good restaurants in walking distance.

"Little luxury in Pohang"


Was pleasantly surprised with my stay here, I had a low expectation but this place exceeded it. All the rooms had an ocean view and seeing sunrise each morning was a pleasant way to wake up. First time in years since I slept with the curtains open. The hallways always smelt good and clean. The room was spacious, with a great bathroom. The staff were friendly, pleasant and helpful. Especially have to shout out kudos to the housekeeper who was super nice when I met her in the corridor and I was heading out and had left my do not disturb sign on, she asked if you could empty my bins and replenish stuff in the room. Lovely lady indeed. The hotel is right on yongildae beach, plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from and cannot forget to say heaps of coffee shops too but the coffee bean in the hotel makes a pretty good matcha latte too. If I return to Pohang would definitely make this my first choice hotel purely for the view and nice smelling hallway.

"You won't be disappointed"


This Best Western is among the best I have stayed in this chain of hotels. It has a relaxing and cheerful lobby with comfortable and bright rooms. It is on the seafront and my room even had a frontal sea view. V impressive.

"Nice hotel with great view"


The view was one of the best parts of the hotel. It was wonderful! It's located at the beach, and the room was very clean and has a very nice bed. I had a very good night sleep. The elevator was a bit slow at the check-out time, but overall we enjoyed staying at the hotel.

"Good for one night"


Located at the beach front the front desk is somber and simple but check-in efficient and easy. Elevator to the room takes a bit long. Room itself simple, sparsely furnished but clean. With a large suitcase not so easy as the room is on the small side. Working table and chair ok but also here some more space would be nice. Bathroom also small but a good spacious shower. WLAN access free if charge and good, stable signal. Breakfast is pretty basic. Beverages ok but food selection is rather limited. For one day ok but staying longer it could be a pain to eat toast, scrambled egg, rice, etc every morning. The hotel does not have another restaurant. In the same huilding on my he second floor is Shabu buffet place and it it is not too cold to walk there are plenty of possibilities. Checkout easy and fast. Price value relation ok.

"Nice hotel in Pohang"


Very clean, nice view of the sea. Need improvement: bath tub design is odd, water will wet the floor, but there is a drian on the bothroom floor. Hotel staff seem helpful, but their English is limited and may not give you the help due to communication issues. Overall, great hotel!

"Well located, new and clean but..."


No restaurant in the hotel. Same building but the lift of the hotel does not reach the restaurants. "Music" very loud on the beach in front of hotel. No space to work with laptop and a few documents. No explanations (about) in english.

"Nice hotel overlooking the water"


If you can find a good deal on the rate, the location is great. The hotel is one block from the waterfront, has a good sized parking garage and within walking distance of many sights, and good places to eat. Even though I am not the biggest seafood fan, there were many places to eat nearby. Family rooms are available with two full size beds and there are shops and restaurants in the same building.

"Best Hotel in Pohang!"


I have stayed here twice so far during my business trips to Pohang. The hotel is definitely the best one in Pohang as I have stayed at others nearby. The rooms are a nice size for Korean standards and the beds are just firm enough to encourage a good night's sleep. The amenities provided are of good quality such as the shampoo and soaps. Toothbrush and razors are also provided. Two water bottles were also complimentary and the staff provided an iron board to me upon request. There is an attached 24hr convenience store which is great for any last minute things or a snack to enjoy. The view was absolutely amazing as from the 16th floor as you can see from the picture I took. Staff also speaks great English and it is close by to all the travel hubs i.e. Train/Bus stations. The area around is near the beach offering numerous bars and pubs. There are also plenty of options for chicken nearby. The only thing I wish they offered was an English newspaper, such as the Korea Times for their foreign guests as they provided Korean papers in the lobby. All in all a great place to stay and the price is well within reason under $85 USD.

"Attractive room"


Staff were good, room was clean and attractive with a large picture window overlooking the bay and waterfront, bed was comfortable and bathroom was very nice with a good size shower. Breakfast was expensive and seemed to have better selection during the week than on the weekend. Major negative was bacon was almost uncooked. Staff, when asked, were very obliging at providing better done bacon. If I returned I would probably have breakfast elsewhere.

"Best place in Pohang IMHO"


First the good. The rooms are well organized, though not overly spacious, clean, and the bed was actually comfortable (if you've stayed in Korea at other places you know what I mean). The view from the 16th floor room we had facing the East Sea was on of the best we've ever had! There was lots going on in the beach right across the street. Lots of access to dining, clubs, and things to see. We were not bored. The staff was very, very friendly and professional. Parking is available and free to guests - though it gets tight if you arrive late. Now the bad. The pillows on the bed were terrible. We asked for, and received, more pillows but you have to put two or three of them together to equal one decent western pillow. The breakfast overall was pretty good and there was plenty to eat - if you're Asian. They did have a couple Western style dishes but there wasn't much but everything, to include the Korean dishes for breakfast, was very tasty! I would have been happy to have the breakfast for my lunch and dinner. I guess I'm just picking; I can't seem to eat the same stuff 3 times a day. Thankfully there is a commercial coffee shop just downstairs. Overall it was an excellent stay.

"Pleasant hotel with good location"


Hotel staff were very friendly, English was good, and most things were exactly what you would expect from an American-style hotel. In the morning, I discovered I had a really nice view of the bay. The bay view was initially hazy, but the nice footpath along the waterfront made for a pleasant walk. A couple of things to be aware of: I was warned that in Korean hotels, the room lights and power are often activated by sliding the room key into a slot right inside the door. That was true of this hotel. If you were unfamiliar with the mechanism, you could spend a lot of time trying to figure it out. Koreans appear to like things warm: the airport, the train, the car, and the hotel were all warmer than I would have preferred. I could not figure out how to control the room temperature. The system ignored my efforts to back off the heat; the temperature was 82F and still rising when I checked out. If I had been saying longer, I would have asked the desk what to do.

"Great view"


View across the bay to Posco is incredible in the day as an engineer at night it is so well lit everyone must be impressed. Room is average but clean and tidy. Breakfast with the view good. Coffee house and convenience store attached. Not easy for dinner around most stores Korean. Restaurant was booked for party staff had very little English. Overall not bad would stay again but need to sort dinner, eat during day!



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.
