Little France Hotel
Ranked #35 of 93 Hotels in Seogwipo
Reviewed 23 April 2012

All in all, we were really happy with our choice for three nights! Our "Antique Room" was really comfy, had a nice view over the harbor, a nice big bathroom, flatscreen television and a computer with internet access. Big bed with a rather hard mattress but apparently that's how Koreans like it :)

The hotel can be reached easily by taking limousine bus 600 from the airport and getting off at "New Kyungnam Hotel". From there it is just a short five minutes walk.

Two staff members were manning the reception during our stay there: one spoke English very well and was really helpful, the other apparently did not speak English but not big problems there either. It may make check in easier if you have booked the hotel online and have a voucher with you.

The tourist office, a famous waterfall, a covered market and many restaurants, coffee shops and mini markets are in easy walking distance. If you want to explore the island by bus it is a 15 minutes walk to the central bus terminal.

The only thing I did not enjoy all too much in our room (502) was that the wallpapers were rather stained in some places. A bucket of paint would do wonders here and make the room 100% comfy and cosy. However, everything else was perfectly clean!

Little France is located smack in the middle of Seogwipo City, but is not in a paricularly rich area for restaurants although there are some around. It is rather industrial around there. The hotel used to have a restaurant, but closed it. There are some small convenience stores nearby. It is perfectly functional for operating in the Soegwipo area, however. There is very nice coastal scenery in this area as well as numerous waterfalls. The bathroom had a shower stall of good size. The room was large and clean/comfortable. The room also provided a computer w/ free internet and there is also one in the lobby. It was a good value for the stay.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights from Mar 31 to Apr 2, 2012. Hotel is located at Seogwipo. We chose to stay in Seogwipo over Jeju City or Jungmun Resort Complex and was very pleased with our decision. Hotel offers excellent value.

Little France is within 3 minutes walk after getting off the airport limousine bus (#600) stop at the New Gyeongnam Hotel (usually the last stop). Property is clean, charming, and nicely decorated. The staff has limited English but is very helpful. There is a side street within 2 minutes walk north of the hotel where there are lots of tasty and very reasonable Korean restaurants where all the locals eat. The ones we tried all accepted Visa card.

There are no rental car companies located in Seogwipo. You'll need to rent a car at the airport or in Jeju City. But we didn't need a car. The first day we caught the around-the-island bus next to the Seogwipo local bus terminal to go the the Sunrise Peak, then caught a ferry to Udo Island. The second day we caught the route 5.16 bus at the smaller bus lot next to the Seogwipo lcoal bus terminal to go hiking at Hallasan's Seongpanak trail, then walked to the Cheonjiyeon Waterfal (10-15 minutes walk from hotel) after returning in the late afternoon. The third day we caught the airport limousine bus to visit the Jungmun Resort Complext area.

Jeju city is busier and much more touristy than Seogwipo. Other than gambling, Jungmun Resort Complex offers few attractions and very limited restaurant choices besides those in the mega-sized hotels. Getting cash from an ATM machine at Seogwipo can be a challenge. Best to obtain cash at Incheon, Gimpo, or Jeju airport.

Room Tip: Hotel has four floors with each floor decorated in a different style. Price increases by W10,000 fo...

We stayed here from 8-10 April in an "Antique room".
Followed the reviews and took bus 600 and the stop was a short walk away, though the ride itself took about just over an hour on a long windy route.
As described, checking in was purely transactional. Give hotel voucher, take key in silence.
The room was nice and comfortable. Mattress was very firm and pillows a bit too soft for my liking. No nice plush bath towels, but 4 face towels. No toothbrush, toiletries are not individual but dispensed from a family size dispenser.
Location is walking distance to the waterfalls and the city centre where there is a market, lots of food and a bit of shopping. Ordered the mixed raw sashimi platter which turned out to be quite a fear factor experience even though i love conventional sashimi.
We also went to Danneko trail at Mount Halla, 10mins taxi ride. Be sure to check trail restriction timings before coming up.
Lava tubes are 40mins away closer to Jeju City so we gave that a miss.
Overall, the location let us visit a few attractions on foot while taking in the sights and sound of a Korean seaside town. There are a few nice walking routes, lookout for the signs. There is one from where bus 600 drops you off. It was especially nice walking around given the Cherry Blossoms were in full bloom.

Its a nice, clean and big room to stay. Although the view is not really nice, you only can see building outside the window but the room is comfortable enough. The service complete with everything you need, toiletries, computer with high speed wifi, tv, heating system/aircond, even perfume and air gel with a huge comb. Near to restaurant, 25minutes walk to Jeongbang waterfall, 15minutes walk to Cheonjiyeon waterfall and Seogwipo port about 20minutes walk. To get here, you can take limousine bus no. 600 at Gate 5 jeju aiport and get off at New Kyungnam Hotel, walk towards Sunbeach hotel and turn left at the 1st intersection. About 10minutes to little france. The first bus will be departed at 6.20am from Seogwipo.
