The motel is located right next to the Busan Train Station and Busan Station subway stop, and that is the only good thing I can say about this place. I am a single female who stayed at the m/hotel for 5 nights. I arrived and was taken through a stinky dingy corridor into my room on the 6th floor. The... More

I didn't know what to expect even though the reviews were all pretty good regarding this hotel. The location is amazing. It is right outside of Busan Station. There is not a lot of "night life" or "action" in this area but the subway station is right there for quick access to all the locations to visit in Busan. The... More

A quaint sort of hotel that is literally steps away from Busan station, (walk out the front and it's on your right). The rooms are quite small but clean and comfortable. The rooms could do with some reconfiguration so that they are better laid out. The hotel is quiet given its location and it is also just a short walk... More

The hotel has been refurbished since we last stayed here. Rooms are small but bright, clean and beds are soft. It's location beside the KTX Busan Station is its best feature. Staff are pleasant and helpful. For the guys there is a 24hour male suana on 3rd floor, just ask for a voucher when you check in.

You won't be unhappy if you stay here I think. Staff were actually very friendly, probably the best I have seen in Korea, but that isn't saying much. Room is clean and fair sized. This is BANG ON next to the train station, but isn't noisy or anything. Lots of restaurants and cafes in the area, internet place next door,... More

My wife and I spent one night at this hotel in July 2011. It was simply terrible. Everything is old. Tap water was brown. I thought that if I make water to run we would get clear water, but then water from the bath started coming out and flooded the bathroom. I usually do not trust reviews of people who... More

This hotel is few steps away from Busan train station. From the exit of the station, you can already see to your right a building with big letters of Hotel Gwang Jang. Good points: - There is a restaurant/cafe on the hotel lobby - Restaurants and convenience store just nearby the hotel. some few steps away. - Center of the... More

Gwangjang was a great place to stay, we were there for 6 nights. The hotel is maybe a little dated but that gave it a sort of charm. The location by Busan station is similarly quirky. Not as seedy a station area as I worried, except if you head a couple of streets over the road. The room was a... More

I was passing by Busan and needed a place to stayed for the night before continuing our journey. This place is right outside the Busan Train Station. You'll see it on your right, after you exit the station (if you read Korean). The hotel name is written really big in Korean on the building, but the English name is only... More
