I stayed there some years ago, my experince is similar to other guests' comments. Excellent view and very peaceful place, but not easy to access. Compared the cost of taxi, I think Mr. Kim charged a reasonable price, but still feels not so comfortable. If he can make it clear in his website, it would be better. I paid the...
