Haewabada Pension in Seongsan was recommended to me by someone who had stayed there before, and I, in turn, will pass on the recommendation, because I think the place is great.
It is a charming pension, with a great location, near both Sunrise Peak and the ferry port for Udo (Cow Island).
The brick chalets are set in a pretty garden on the east coast of Jeju-do. The chalets are spacious and have great facilities, including a kitchen area, computer with internet access, television, refrigerator, under-floor heating, and a balcony.
The price is 60,000 won per night, but in low-season it can be negotiated down to 40,000 won.
It was during my previous visit to Jeju-Do in April that I noticed a signboard guiding the way towards the so-called "JAZZ VILLAGE".
After checking their website (unfortunately so far only in Korean!), I instantly decided that this is going to be the place to stay during my next visit.
It was a good decision!
The Jazz Village is a relatively new (opened in January 2005), blockhouse-style pension in the Southern part of Jeju-Do in a very quiet and convenient location, only about 5 minutes drive from Jungmun beach.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and could even speak a little English. To live up to its name, soft Jazz music was constantly being played on the outside, creating a romantic and relaxed atmosphere for the young and the young at heart...!
The rooms are spacious, clean and equipped with everything you might possibly need, incl. a large TV, DVD player, kitchenette, fridge, sofa, air-con, hair-drier, kettle, shower gel and shampoo.
The bigger apartments have two or even three storeys with spiral staircases leading to the upper floors.
- new, clean and extremely cosy
- friendly, English-speaking staff
- outdoor swimming pool
- DVD player in room
- open air cinema (once a week)
If I were to return to Jeju, I'd stay near SeongSan Illchubong, the volcanic crater. Why? Because waking up early to see the sun rise over Seongsan Illchulbong is a must in these parts. Words can't descibe the spectacle that I saw so I'll put a picture..
I've just listed one tourist hotel over here but there are more yokwans ( traditional inns) clustered around the site of the crater. Trouble is, these Yokwans rarely take reservations, it's more on a walk-in-availability basis. The hotel I've listed is a 3* joint , be patient when you give them a call. Korean English can be trying at times..
Together with The Shilla Hotel it's definitely one of the best places to stay on Jeju-Do... but also one of the most expensive ones: The Lotte Hotel.
Nothing for budget travelers but something for everybody who enjoys staying in an elegant, cosy and extremely luxurious manner.
+ Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms
+ All rooms come with private balcony
+ Indoor & outdoor pool, spa, fitness center, tennis courts, Casino, Duty Free Shop, rental car company, daily vulcano show
+ Extremely polite and obliging personnel
+ Design and overall environment
- Very costly
- Breakfast buffet is rather Asian-oriented
- Language barrier (rental car, gift shop, ...)
Pacific Hotel is a very nice and peaceful hotel in Cheju.
This pic was taken from their restaurant where we had our breakfast.
Located at the West shore, along a lava stone coastline, the IGH pension attracts by its extremely bright and cosy apartments with a large window front facing the sea.
The apartments are very clean and offer a fully equipped kitchenette. Depending on the category, sofa, stereo and coffee table are also provided. Our room had an extremely comfy King size bed and the typical Korean floor heating system (Ondol) made sure that nobody was freezing over the night time hours. For summer, the air-conditioning makes sure, you don't suffer a heatstroke!
In addition, IGH offers a private DVD "cinema" for their guests with a wide selection of Western movies as well as (since recently) Internet access from two PC stations.
Due to its relatively remote location, a sound sleep is guaranteed. Due to the same reason, however, a car is recommended.
Only drawback for those who need it:
No pool is provided!
- Extremely quiet
- Very nice staff
- Private DVD room
The Shilla Hotel is a gorgeous but also expensive place to stay. We were lucky and made use of a special offer for an extended weekend and then even got upgraded to the "Corner Suite", which had a view over the adjacent golf court and lots of palm trees. The staff was very comforting and friendly, helpful at any time.
The facilities are splendid: Indoor and outdoor pool, which can be connected during summer time and nice weather, huge garden, gym, Spa and a casino.
Also a perfect place for meetings, conventions, etc.
Great location, great facilities, great view!
My wife, who is a korean native, booked that hotel. The website is in Korean only, even though these guys speak a liiiitle bit english.
First we missed the turn of the mainroad a few times until we finally found it.
When you turn into the dead end street of the hotel, you see that lovely Jazz Village. 4 wooden houses, looks like Canadian Buildings, soft Jazz Music from the speakers and just a great surrounding!
Very good location on the south side of the island just of Highway 12.
Excellent Rooms, great service and great view to Hallasan.
Do try to stay in a minbak ( private home) when you're in Cheju. I'm glad I did, the gracious hostess at this minbak lent a cosy family atmosphere to the whole place and made me feel very welcomed. On the last day, she even walked me to my car and emailed her New Year Greetings when I returned.
This is a little red earthern house framed with tangerine trees near the beach. There's also a full-fledged kitchen for your own use .
Cost was about 50,000 Won. A family run establishment, not much facilities except a restaurant cum karaoke bar. Pretty small room with a queen size bed, small tv (no cables), a small fridge and that's about it.All in all, I consider it a pretty good value for money as it was clean and considering the peak period when I was there (World Cup and summer month). P.S - Met a lot of Chinese reporters covering a China match I was watching there.
I thought it was small and crampy at first. But after a few days, it was an adequate place to unwind after a tiring days out. Clean and affordable.
Accomodation around Songsan-Ilch'ulbong are hard to find, as they all speak korean only.
Ilch'ulbong Tourist Hotel offers the best possibility of english speaking staff.
It's just a few minutes from the Mountain.
