It is perfectly situated in front of the BIFF Square and Jagalchi Fish Market. Walking distance from restaurants, supermarket, malls and subway. The staff are so nice and funny :) especially those cleaning the room!!! The food is OK, actually it exceeded my expectations for the price I paid. Definitely highly recommended hotel!

The pictures on the hotel’s website didn’t really do it justice. It was better than I had expected. I took the JR Beetle Ferry from Hakata, Japan. There was a bus from the ferry terminal in Busan which stopped right outside the hotel on the BIFF square side of the street. (As a side note, “BIFF” is apparently pronounced “BIPU” in Korean, the bus driver had a hard time understanding where I wanted to go when I told him BIFF square) The room wasn’t huge, but bigger than the one I had in Tokyo. It was clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast wasn’t included in my room, so I have no idea how that was. My room was facing the street, but was quite high up in the building, so I never heard any traffic noise, and I say this as someone who is easily disturbed by sound when trying to sleep. Across the street is BIFF square with a lot of restaurants. Right outside the door is the Jagalchi subway station, and it seems like you can also walk everywhere in the city underground, which was helpful due to the rain that was pouring down in Busan every day I was there. One subway stop away, or about a ten minute walk, is a huge Lotte department store. I’m not likely to return to Busan, but if I do I would gladly stay here again.

The title says it all. The room was small - actually narrow. So small and crowded that the safe is under one of the beds. However, there was still room (barely) for a couple of chairs and the linens and beds were excellent. If you are driving, parking is around the back down an alley - so not easy to find from the main street in front of the hotel. On the positive side the hotel is clean and quiet; in an excellent location close to the food areas across the street around BIFF Square, shopping can be found down the street in the Lotte Gwangbok Mall; the Jigalchi Fish Market is just around the corner (a must see in Busan); and, if you book a room at the back of the hotel, an excellent view over the East Sea and the various bridges crossing the peninsulas can be had. At night the Jigalchi Fish Market and the bridges are lit up making for very pretty view. The one peculiarity in this hotel was the large window between the bathroom and the bedroom. We have experienced this before in South Africa but were surprised to see it again in S. Korea. I'm not sure what the purpose of this window is - perhaps to let more light into the bathroom. But while off-putting, no real problem given the other pluses of this hotel. Otherwise the bathroom was clean modern with dispensers attached to the wall. Finally, if you are flying out of Busan the other plus is that the airport bus stops near the front of the hotel. All in all a good hotel from which to tour Busan.

We booked a week long trip to Busan so decided to book 2 hotels as Busan is a large city. Stanford Inn was the first hotel we booked. We chose this hotel because it was near BIFF Square/Nampo area and Busan Metro Station called Jagalchi. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel. The taxi driver didn’t know where exactly the hotel was but he knew the address/street. He drove went up and down the street to find our hotel First impression of the hotel was not good. There was only one person at the front desk and he was on the phone for 15 mins. In that time, a number of check-in/guests formed a queue behind us to be served We booked a standard double room with breakfast and we had mixed reactions. The room is small. There was no wardrobe. There is a coat hanger and three hangers near the window. The safe is underneath the bed. We would put our large suitcase by the door to walk around the room. The room is “barely” comfortable for 2 persons. On the plus side, the room is very clean, tidy and modern Breakfast is not good. We would get about 1 hour before breakfast finishes but a number of times there was no re-fill on the already limited Western and Korean dishes. The location is very good. Across the road is BIFF Square, which is a pedestrian area with food and shops. The metro station Jagalchi has an underground shopping centre. You can also walk one stop underground to Nampo, which has a large Lotte Department Store, which has even more food and shops! To get around Busan, get a Tmoney or Cashbee card. This can be used on metro and buses. We would recommend to go to Busan Tower first, so you can see from height Busan. You can see the tower from the hotel! You can see Gamcheon Culture Village from Busan Tower. To get to Gamcheon Culture Village, go one stop to Toseong. Exit 6, turn right along Kkachigogae-ro for about 5 mins. You will see a bus top outside a hospital. Take bus #1-1, 2 or 2-2. Also we recommend Beomeosa Temple. Go to Beomeosa (23 stops (!) but you do not have to change metro), exit 5 or 7, walk up Cheongnyongyejeon-ro for about 5 mins and you see a sheltered bus stop. Take bus 90 to the temple The hotel is in a great location but wished a smoother check-in, bigger room and better breakfast. We would happily stay in Nampo area again but in a different hotel

Very pleasant experience staying at Stanford Inn Busan! Reception were very helpful and friendly. Well-versed in English. Lost a wallet just upon reaching Busan while on the airport limousine and reception immediately helped to contact the bus company. Manage to get back the wallet with everything still inside. Didn’t manage to get the name of the male staff on duty but, really thank you so much for helping us get back the wallet! Location of hotel is close to Nampo-dong as well as Jagalchi train station. Airport bus stops opposite hotel and pick up to airport is in front of hotel. Jagalchi seafood market Is just behind the hotel and directly opposite is BIFF square with lots of food options nearby. Rooms were very neat, modern and spacious, toilets well furnished and well sound-proof walls. Rooms were made and cleaned daily, with clean beddings and towels. Rooms were exactly as shown in hotel booking website. Will recommend anyone who’s travelling to Busan to stay in this hotel! (: Thank you for such a wonderful stay! Definitely deserves 5 star!

Stayed here one night before returning to Seoul. I had asked for a standard room overlooking the harbour and it was fine. Great views at night with the city lit up. Staff pleasant, rooms clean and beds comfy. Close to many places to see and eat at. Recommend it.

Stanford Inn is an excellent choice for travellers who are visiting Busan for shopping and sightseeing. It is located in the heart of the Nampodong shopping district along the main road right beside airport busstop and the city tour busstop, directly opposite the city's BIFF Square and within walking distance of the Lotte Gwangbuk Department Store. Jalgachi Market for fresh seafood is located behind the hotel. To reach Stanford Inn, take the airport limousine bus outside Gate #3 bound for Busan Station which costs only KRW6,000 per person. Alight at Nampongdong which is after Busan Station stop. The bus from the airport stops in front of Foret Hotel and there is a traffic light junction to cross Gudeok-ro to reach Stanford Inn. Airport bus is perfect for solo travellers or couples, but taxi is better for those travelling in groups of three or four pax. Taxi fare to/from Gimhae Airport is just under KRW20,000. We booked a double room and a triple room for five nights and skipped the breakfast option. Double room with a queen bed or two single beds costs USD70 per night while the triple room with a queen bed and a single bed tucked snugly into a separate corner of the room (see photo) costs USD100 per night. Only USD30+ per pax per night. We paid for our rooms on arrival and the front desk staff gave us a VAT refund voucher to be stamped and processed upon our departure at Gimhae Airport so the actual room cost is even lower.😊 Our room is compact but functional and kept flawlessly clean by the hardworking room attendants who are cheerful, meticulous and never fail to smile and greet guests when they meet us along the corridors or at the lift lobby. Bottled water, coffee/tea bags, towels, bathroom amenities were replenished everyday. We like the eco-friendly, wall-mounted plastic tubes of handwash, handcream above the wash basin and the conditioning shampoo and shower gel above the bath tub. The bed is very comfortable and it was lovely to fall onto crisp, pristine white, smooth and crease-free pillows and bedlinen every night.😊 Busan Tower was visible from one of our rooms while the other faced the Jagalchi Market and had a partial view of the harbour. Our only gripe with the latter room was the lack of full length, blackout curtains. Same issue with the city view room, and traffic noise from the street can be heard as late as 1am to 2am at night. We were assigned mid floor rooms so do ask for high floor rooms which should be quieter and have better view. We arrived in Busan on a red eye flight and had to kill time till 3pm to checkin. However we saw a couple arriving st the hotel just after us being given their room key card at about 9am. Check out time is 11am and the hotel's idea of a late check out is 12pm but we are prepared to overlook this on account of its excellent location and value for money. Not many centrally located, wallet-friendly 3☆ hotels provide both bath tub and bidet. We had a pleasant and comfortable stay and highly recommend Stanford Inn to anyone who does not wish to splurge on accommodation.
