Opened in March 2014, Lotte City Hotel Daejeon is one of two hotels in the immediate vicinity of Daejeon Convention Center. Daejeon is the fifth largest city in South Korea and a major hub for R&D and education events in the North-east Asian region. The country’s second administrative capital after Seoul, Sejong City, is located 40 minutes away.

Meeting facilities The hotel boasts two main function areas – the 436.4m2 Crystal Ballroom and 138.8m2 Ruby Room. The ballroom features 5.5m high ceilings and space for 250 in classroom style, while the Ruby Room takes up to 80 in theatre style. A conference room on the first floor provides space for board meetings.

F&B Dining is a straightforward affair at the buffet restaurant on the 18th floor, with clear views of the surrounding area through floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the room with natural light in the morning. The restaurant is furnished with simple, clean lines and the breakfast spread was simple and satisfying.

Rooms The entry-level category here is the 27.7m2 Superior Room which was roomy for one person. Pastel browns dominated the palette of the room, anchored by an ebony-coloured desk. Clean, functional and fuss free, the business traveller is right at home here.

For families, there is the Deluxe Family Twin room. Despite also being 27.7m2, the room accommodates up to three persons.

The Suite Rooms on the top floors on the building command stellar views of Gapcheon and Expo Bridge, and range from 41.9 to 57.1m2. They come with separate living and sleeping areas and provide Molton Brown amenities.

Other facilities The health-conscious can keep up with their physical regimens at the fitness centre on the second floor. Right beside that is the coin laundry room.  But for all that has been said about business travellers preferring a no-frills or fuss-free stay, some service is still needed, especially if the hotel is a good business hotel. So it’s a bit of a dampener to be told you need to use the second floor vending machines for more water when you’ve finished your two free bottles of water and are in your pyjamas at 22:00 pm.
