Suanbo is a small Ski resort for local tourism. You arrive here after driving about 10 minutes on weaving mountainous road off Hwy 45. I arrived here at 10pm, after mid-February, and people were skiing down the lighted slopes literally inside of town.
I am in the area for business and was looking for a place to stay for the night. I think the Park Hotel is best in town. I also found out that the company I visited, located 30 min south from here on Hwy 45, has contracted special rates in this hotel for its employees and visitors. So I assume it’s a good choice in local standards.
The building looks spacious and respectable, with simplicity which seems to be a local theme. Let me ruin for you the surprise awaiting as you walk into your room: It is an empty wooden floor. Except for a tiny low table with two pillows to seat on the floor beside it, a small fridge with local beers, water, sodas etc. (which are very reasonably priced) and a low shelf for TV, telephone, and cable internet connection along the wall. WiFi available in lobby only. Power outlets available to charge your gadgets.
The answer to the question “how do I sleep” is found in the cabinet which offers plenty of futons and blankets, folded together with sheets, that you are supposed to put on the floor. Pillows provided too.
Bathroom is “western normal”, except for all towels smaller than you expect. No full size towels. It is simple functional and clean.
Cleanliness in room is acceptable, except for the small square carpet at the room entrance. Vacuuming behind the door seems to be overrated here. Otherwise the floor is wooden and clean. Sheets on futons and blankets seem to be clean. I was not sure about the pillow, so I placed it underneath the futon.
At about 0 degrees C (32 F) outside, room is comfortably warm. Heating system is under the floor. Heating is central. To turn it off need to ask reception. Room also has air conditioner which I obviously did not test. Hotel also has sauna which I did not try.
Breakfast is in the restaurant which is in the entrance floor, and not included in room charge. It is a sitting restaurant, and is pretty good with western selection.
This hotel is locally acceptable. Don't expect any English. but hands motions work for communication. “Google translate” works too. The next best option is to sleep in Suwon-Si which offers Better selection of better hotels, and drive here for the day. Driving time is about 90min.

I was traveling around South Korea and chose this hotel because of its location and its hot springs. I was pleasantly surprised that its elevation was higher than I expected. Also, the room was very nice. I found the food to be very, very good and sent my compliments to the chef for both my dinner and the next morning's breakfast. Plus, I was amazed at the exquisite Korean made china used for all meals. (and available in a shop at the hotel). Thank you for making my stay heavenly.

The setting is beautiful. The hotel is really nice and the staff are great. The rooms are big and comfortable. The only bad thing I can say about this hotel is that the bathroom was cold when we got there. The hot spring and sauna is really nice and relaxing. The restaurant is not great the western food is not executed very well and there is not much choice. There is steep road up to this hill which would not be easy for some people. I will definitely go back though.

Room tip: 총 3층 건물. 전망 좋은 쪽을 갈 수 있다면 좋겠지만... 에어컨은 각 객실 발코니에 실외기가 놓여있다.
