A lovely mountain respite!
Wanted to spend a night at the famous Seoraksan as part of my east coast Korea explorations and Kensington Hotel was a great choice. While the room decor screamed 1980s-1990’s English chintz explosion (read: a bit dated-haha) the whole thing kinda works. The hotel lobby and hallways are interesting and informational, the decor is super fun in the public areas of the hotel, and the views are unmatched (seriously book a room with a view). Enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the beds were comfy. Bathroom was nice (please bring back washcloths!!!!) staff were super polite and helpful since we came during a time with no restaurant service in the evenings. Would gladly return any time!

4/10 Fair

Beautiful location, but the hotel is very outdated and looks as if it has never been updated. The first room was very dirty and had a terrible smell. The staff was very quick to address our request to change rooms, and they were very polite. Overall the hotel is fairly run down, and not in good shape. The views are nice, but the design of the hotel makes it awkward to see the sights outside (not a straight or clear view to the mountains). Great location, but I would recommend looking elsewhere to stay. The breakfast buffet was ok, not great, but good enough.

The location is amazing. My room has a view of the mountains just like the resort hotels I remember from growing up in Colorado. The Seoraksan main entrance is a five minute walk away. Solid food options at the hotel, and cheaper options available at the convenient store outside the parking lot.

Cozy old european style hotel with amazing view
It's a lovely authentic hotel with old european vibes. Great stay but sadly two of the restaurants were closed due to COVID 19. I'd definitely come back after the pandemic
