St. John's Hotel ❤️”

St. John's Hotel 🥹 I really love this hotel ❤️ My mind, body, and soul were in so much pain... I wanted to rest... I took 5 days off from work and made a last-minute reservation on Agoda. But there was a mistake in the Agoda app and the reservation was made 4 times; I was in a panic and tears on the train from Seoul to Gangneung... I thought, is this a curse... or a bad omen 😰? I even thought, did I come for no reason...? I thought it would be a hellish trip... But St. John's Hotel understood my situation and Agoda's mistake, even though it was not their fault... They canceled the reservation for free and apologized. I was so grateful and felt even more sorry. I've been to St. John's Hotel 3 times... I want to come again and I'm sad to go home... 🥲🥲🥲 St. John's Hotel that comforts my tired heart ❤️ St. John's Hotel that shows me that the world is still warm ❤️ Thank you so much ❤️ I'll come again next time!

Cleanliness is good”

It's a bit small for a family of four to stay, but it was nice to have a comfortable sleep using each bed. The cleanliness was good and the staff were friendly. I'm planning to try the infinity pool next time. At first, I was confused because I had to insert the key and press the floor number to go up after getting on the elevator, but it was convenient once I knew how to use it. However, parking was a bit complicated and the space was small, which was disappointing. Overall, it was a decent stay.

Everything was very satisfying and the kindness was the best!!!”

It was a trip with my mother and aunts. We had an accident during the trip and I injured my leg, so I had to wear a cast. The staff kindly lent me a wheelchair and guided us well, so I am very grateful. As expected, Saint John's Hotel in Gangneung was the best!
