Holiday Inn and Suites Alpensia Pyeongchang Suite

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 January 2012

We stayed at Holiday Inn for 2 nights. We were booked at one of the suites near the slopes, which gave us a nice scenery. The room was really spacious and the bed was comfortable. The kitchen was complete with utensils so we were able to cook food. There a lots of restaurants nearby though. There is a mini grocery nearby. Free wifi is really a big plus. We were able to upload our photos online almost in real time. The staff was really very helpful and accommodating from the front desk people down to the cleaning lady. The front desk people I spoke to speak decent English. Me and my family come from a tropical country and this was our first time to experience snow. Our 3 kids had lots of fun playing in the snow. We were not able to try the winter sports activities offered by the resort though. But nevertheless, we are already looking forward to return this year for another wonderful Christmas holiday.

The Alpensia Resort is perfect for us, beginners to skiing! First time touching snow, my 2 kids were elated! The place is very scenic, it has 5 ski slopes of different steepness, for different levels of skiers. We hired an instructor (a staff of Holiday Inn) and he was simply great! We were able to ski down the slope without falling or knocking into someone else after 2 hours of lessons.
The Resort is 1 year old, so everything is still very new and comfortable. The room has no bed. We slept on futons on floor like real Koreans! Our room was facing the ski slopes, the view was so refreshing!
Not all staff speaks English, but we got by with no issue. The very helpful supervisor was apologetic about it, but she promised when we return in one year, she would have them all trained in English! That was nice of her!

We enjoyed Alpensia very much! Thanks!

Room Tip: Facing the ski slopes would be my recommendation.

We stayed there for 3 days in a 1 bedroom suite with open kitchen. A small ski field is just a few minutes away, we snowboarded at the evening time at the first day arrival.
Super market, Korean restaurant, water park are just in a walk distance.
YongPyong resort is just 5 minutes text.
The suite is neatly decorated. Kitchen and bathroom are clean and tidy. Bedroom is comfortable.
We feel like we were home.
The suite make a highlight to the trip. My boyfriend did a great job!

We ( two families , 4 adults and 3 children ) checked in on 21 st December 2011 for 3 days 2 nights . This hotel is simply awesome ; beautiful ski slope , clean and spacious apartment , plenty of eatery place ( Korean , Japanese , fast food like Domino ) , convinent stores and friendly staffs . The staffs do speak reasonably well English and this is very important for us who do not speak and understand Korean language .

We booked a three rooms apartment ( 1st room - queen bed . 2nd room - 2 single beds . 3rd room - ondol room ) . Our unit is clean , well kept and spacious . Kitchen is equipped with all cooking utensil and you can cook if you want to .

Would recommend to attend cheese making class . This is an hour hand on lesson that starts at 6.30pm . The cottage cheese is simply yummy , yummy ..... Teacher begins the class by telling us the history of cheese . The class is next to the convenient store .

Remember to book the English speaking Ski Coach fast and early . English coach is highly in demand exspecially during the peak season .

Another plus point about Alpensia is that the shuttle bus ( not free and you have to pay ) stop right in front of the welcoming center , alpensia . This is very important and helpful exspecially during the winter time .. It is not fun at all waiting for bus outdoor in the old weather .

Room Tip: Try to ask for block 201 , which is nearer to ski house .

This is a very good hotel. The hotel is beside the ski mountain. The rooms met a high standard for cleanliness. The TV and WIFI in the room worked well.
