When I gaze at the clear autumn sky, I feel the urge to go somewhere. A trip to a place where you can relax among the white clouds!
A trip to get away and rest from your busy daily life for a bit! Have you made plans for this fall?
What is the most important part of making travel plans?
I am not good at making decisions, so I feel more comfortable with a friend who has a strong sense of direction. Even if the journey can be difficult at times, I would go far to get emotional healing.
Imagine ending your day with a warm bath and cozy hotel bedding rustling its welcome! Nothing could be better, right? 🛁🛌 Most people think of traditional Hanok experiences in Jeonju Hanok Village when they think of Jeonju, but there are also many chic hotels in Jeonju. Here, let me introduce you to the three hotels I’ve selected!
1. Best Western Plus Jeonju Hotel
Phone: 063-231-7777 | Address: 41 Hyeonmu 1-gil, Wansan-gu, Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do
“A prime location allowing you to enjoy walking tours around Jeonju Hanok Village!”
Located opposite Jeonju City Hall Nosong Plaza, Best Western Plus Jeonju Hotel offers optimum location for enjoying tours of Jeonju Hanok Village and the downtown area on foot! ♀️
Entering the lobby of Best Western Plus Jeonju Hotel, located in the downtown area of Jeonju, you are greeted by the lobby desk, café, and welcome zone. 🤗 The promotional videos continuously being played on the central pillar of the lobby highlighted Best Western Plus Jeonju Hotel’s commitment to growing with the local community.
From the rooms, you can have a panoramic view of Jeonju City Hall Nosong Plaza and Jeonju Hanok Village.
The hotel features standard double, twin, and family twin rooms, and also ‘connecting rooms’ – two deluxe family twin rooms connected, allowing families to stay more comfortably and spaciously.
While exploring the rooms, I noticed nameplates next to the doors. It seems to substantiate Jeonju as the city of movies and sound, as many filmmakers and singers have visited. It’s a small pleasure to see who has stayed!
Advocating for eco-friendly travel, Best Western Plus Jeonju Hotel offers complimentary bicycle rentals to its guests. ♂️ Plus, the hotel pool promises delightful water play for kids!
And who can talk about hotels without mentioning breakfast! The Fines Restaurant offers delicacies made from carefully prepared ingredients every day at reasonable prices.

2. Grand Hillstone Hotel
Phone: 063-251-8000 | Address: 22-5 Seogok 5-gil, Wansan-gu, Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do
“The Epitome of a Sleek Business Hotel! ”
Nestled in Seogok, Wansan-gu, Jeonju, the Grand Hillstone is situated at the foot of Hwangbangsan, a gateway into Jeonju right after the Jeonju tollgate. It’s so well-located that it provides convenient access to both the downtown area and the outskirts, making it a popular choice not only for families on vacation but also for business travelers visiting Jeonju.
On the first floor, you’ll find the lobby desk along with the Hillstone Café where you can purchase souvenirs from Jeollabuk-do. So handy for those moments when you realize you forgot to buy gifts at the end of your trip! And hey, why not gift the renowned Jeonju Choco Pie? It’s a local delicacy!
There’s this “Glad to be here today” welcome photo zone, it’s just a sight that instantly makes you happier. It’s a blissful spot for sure!
With its wedding hall, banquet hall, the first-floor Hillstone Café, and the restaurant and bar in the Sky Lounge, this hotel offers spaces and services that lack nothing, whether you’re there with family, friends, or for business 🥂.
A variety of rooms, including business rooms and suites (with a bedroom or Korean ondol room), are available, and the type of business room varies depending on the number of guests, so do check out their website for your preference.
The pristine bedding at Grand Hillstone stands out, epitomizing the essence of a sleek business hotel. Right across from Grand Hillstone is Hwangbangsan. It’s a loved spot among locals, with walking trails for leisurely strolls. How about joining the locals for a walk on a cool autumn day when the refreshing wind is blowing?

3. **The May Hotel**
Phone: 063-246-5555 | Address: 800 Girin-daero, Deokjin-gu, Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do
“Rising Hotspot! A Trendy Local Hotel with Pool Villas in Palbok-dong!”
Introducing ‘The May Hotel,’ a local hotel in Palbok-dong, a newly rising area in Jeonju undergoing urban regeneration projects!
Palbok-dong in Jeonju has been a hub of industry since 1962 and, from 2018, it has been transforming through cultural regeneration projects. A closed-down cassette factory has been reimagined as ‘Palbok Art Hall’ and is now a beloved cultural space for citizens.
In late April, trains pass amidst the fully bloomed e-pa trees, creating scenes right out of a fairy tale, announcing the arrival of spring!
In this land where industry and culture coexist, we have ‘The May Hotel.’ It might seem an odd location, but it aligns with the changing vibe of Palbok-dong, offering top-notch services and spaces.
The hotel features a wedding hall, banquet hall, and café, but what stole my heart was the pool villa, with its rooftop infinity pool you can use privately. It’s the ultimate facility to create memories with your loved ones on special days!
The May Hotel also has a ‘Family Share’ room for family travelers. This room can accommodate up to 12 people, based on 6 people and is rare in hotels, allowing up to three teams of four-member families to use it together.
I personally think breakfast is the jewel of a hotel stay. A comfortable bed and a leisurely breakfast—it’s the rest you give yourself after working hard.
