Hotel is clean and big. Check in and check out was done fairly efficiently. Had slight problem communicating with the reception counter. When we asked about the breakfast, we were informed that our rooms did not come with breakfast. However, when we checked again later, we were informed that our rooms did come with breakfast. No idea if it was... More

One night stay only, on my way home from Ulsan, catching an early plane out from Gimhae Int'l. They told me 40 mins taxi ride to the airport, but it only took 30. Very nice hotel, perfect room with a wonderful view over the beach. After enjoying the spareribs at TGI Fridays, a short walk from the hotel, it was... More

This is a very pleasant hotel facing Busan's most popular beach. Fortunately we were upgraded to an ocean view room. I had booked a city view thinking it would be great to overlook the city and surrounding mountains. Only when we arrived I realized that city view rooms probably looked directly onto tall buildings directly behind the hotel. The service... More

Great location, right in front of Haeundae Beach and the Aquarium. Lots of restaurants and massage places around too. I got the city view which had a reasonable price. The breakfast was pretty good, enjoyed it. The room was OK, the AC maybe could have worked better but it wasn't bad either. The beds were ok as well, nothing out... More

I was travelling on business but stayed at a hotel that is right next to the beach!

It is a very decent hotel. It is a beach front hotel which made going to the heundae beach very convenient. As for the room itself, it was affordable and clean. It was also very spacious compared to some of the other hotels I've stayed in Korea. Staff were friendly and the indoor swimming pool was also quite nice.

Superbly located if you like to be right by the beach. Overall we enjoyed our stay. However, the hotel seems to be rather run-down and badly in need of updating. The rooms are in poor condition.
