Holiday Inn Resort, Alpensia Pyeongchang

Holiday Inn Resort, Alpensia Pyeongchang - This is the best hotel so far in our trip.  The resort is a 3.5-hour drive from Incheon International Airport and 2 hours from Gimpo Airport in Seoul.
Hotel Building
You can step onto the hotel room balcony for fresh air and have the nicest view of pine-clad slopes. I wish I can stay a few more days in this hotel and spend my time siting at the balcony and enjoying the view of ppl skiing.

And night time, we have another different view. As its late autumn and is not snowing heavily daily yet, so the resort have to generate snow every night in order to earn more cash for ppl to ski.
Night time view - smoky thing is where they are generating the snow

This is a 5 star hotel consists of hotel building, spa building and convention center, all of which are separated in between, to provide genuine 5 star class services specific to business and wellness.

  1. Hi Linda, I chanced upon your blog as I'm researching on this hotel. Would you say the amount you paid for the breakfast is worth it? And if I dont get the breakfast there, are there any other places where I can food like bread and etc? Thanks in advance!
