Very Clean and Affordable”

I love the Mediterranian charm of the room. 10/10 would stay again. Right next to Uncheon Station and some lovely parks (the 5.18 Memorial Park and the Uncheon Reservoir).

Good base to explore Gwangju and around”

We had a pleasant stay in Athene Hotel. Room is not big, but pretty comfortable. Lots of toiletries, water & juice, bathrobes and more. For breakfast you can make your own toast with jam/peanut butter. Design of the rooms is not my taste, but everything looks quit new and is clean. Younger staff speak English pretty well, the older ones don’t. Hotel is 5 minutes walk to subway line (Uncheon St) and bus stops. Plenty of (more upmarket) restaurants in neighborhood. Lots of love hotels in the area. Convenience stores nearby too.
