“Awesome room...when it was new”

  , Tokyo
When I first walked into my (upgraded...maybe $10-20 more than the base room) room, I was blown away. It looks like something straight out of Miami Vice. stone floor with a round carpeted area, round bed with a desk wrapping around the back, doubling as the headboard, a sitting area with very chic grey felt chairs, floor-to-ceiling windows with a view, a large glass-and-slate bathroom with a round jetted tub, separate shower with a huge shower head, and the toilet in a separate compartment. Awesome.And then reality set in. It was the death of a thousand paper cuts. The jetted tub was probably cleaned after the last time it was used, but that must have been a while ago, because it was dusty in there. The counter in the bathroom was at knee-top level. The trash can in the toilet room was filthy. The gasket between the front and back of the dinner-plate-sized shower head was hanging out, with the result that half of the water squirted uselessly out the side. The neat desk...was barely deep enough to fit a laptop on it, so no room for your forearms to rest on the tabletop in front of the keyboard. One set of shades (floor to ceiling) literally fell at my feet when I tried to adjust them.I have to imagine that the hotel was built especially for the World Cup, and has not been economically viable since then (who goes to Gwangju, anyway?), and that is the cause of the deplorably dilapidated state of this hotel. It was probably stunning when it was new. Now it's a mess...but I have no reason to believe that other places wouldn't have the same problem, so you might as well stay at the Ramada.I was a little irked to pay $10/day for internet when most places include it in the rate. At least they comped the parking. I'm used to paying $10/day for that, so I guess it's a wash. The location is good. The subway network is not very extensive in Gwangju, but I did notice that there is a stop near the hotel on the line that runs to the airport just a few stops away. There's a lotte department store a block away and an outback steakhouse (which seems to be on every corner in Korea, there may be more Outbacks than McDonalds!) next door, where the garlic steak was excellent.
