Miranda: Most prominent hotel in Ichon

I stayed at the Miranda for over 7 weeks. The wait staff is courteous and responsive. Most speak English fairly well. If you're staying in an “ordinary” room, you will find a small stocked refrigerator but little else in the way of amenities. The bottled water (two per day) in the refrigerator are free, everything else is charged to your room. A hot water dispenser can be found on the tenth floor in the small executive fitness room. You do not have access to a microwave oven. The hotel restaurant is a bit pricey but you’ll find plenty of reasonably priced Korean Restaurants just outside the hotel. Breakfasts are not included with the price of the room. Laundry is very expensive at the Miranda. I recommend hand carrying your laundry to one of the laundry mats located behind the hotel. You will get your clothes back within 24 hrs pressed and folded for 1/5th the hotel price. The hotel has only two internet capable computers to serve all patrons. There is no ISDN access in from your room. There is a couple of ISDN outlets in the internet room.
The beds are hard and the sheets are scratchy but the cable TV has plenty of channels to choose from. My bathroom had a malodorous smell which permeated the room. I had to keep the door shut or suffer the consequences. My room was often too hot. I had to cool the room by opening the windows.

Miranda hotel is well know for its grand spa (a spa with over a dozen different Hot Tubs and saunas). Men and women share the same swimming pool but the spa's are seperate. Its nice but its not free. Hotel guests receive a 20% discount. Costs vary from 5800 to 12000 won depending on the time of day and day of the week. The fitness room, located next to the Grand Spa, is however free to hotel guests. This is not publicized so it not common knowledge to most hotel guests.
