I stayed here during my short summer break with 4 other friends. The price and location were good considering it's a 5 minute walk to Haeundae. However, the one thing I couldn't get over was the stench of mold in the room. My friends and I bought some Fabreeze. There was also mold in the bathroom on the shower curtain which protected the door (so the room doesn't flood). It was kind of gross. Unfortunately because of COVID, the dining hall was closed, but the spa area was nice.
The hotel room looks like it has been renovated and some parts of our room looked new and other parts are dated and old. As others have mentioned the room has a strange layout. There is no carpet, they use a vinyl covering which is easier to cleans, probably because of Sand from the beach? The sink is outside the room and next to the bed. There is nowhere to put your small toiletry bags. There are no towel racks to hang towels. The toilet is in a small room by itself, if your tall you will have a tough time sitting in the toilet and closing the door. The toilet does not flush very well, it constantly backed up and you had to flush it two or three times. Bath tub and shower are in a decent area but it has see through door so you got to close the curtain. Hotel only provides three sets of towels and you pay for anymore. Outrageous prices Phone in the room cannot call outside the room. I wanted to make a simple outside call and was told it's not possible Breakfast is the same for all the days we were there. Basic - weiners, dry eggs, bacon and what looked like McCains fries. Plus Korean dishes. Staff had a hard time getting food stocked up during busy times. Many of the hotel staff do not speak English, although they try. Unlike other hotels in Asia they do not provide toothbrushes or tooth paste out other amenities. You can buy these at a vending machine. They do not give the disposable slippers, they give actual real slippers in the room for guests Hotel is close to the beach, many restaurants, haeundae market and many smaller restaurants. The spa (hot tubs and sauna) is decent but it closes early at 9 pm. It opens early at 5am Would not book here again…
I would recommend this hotel if you are trying to stay in Haeundae beach and on a budget. The location is near Paradise Casino and the main beach. The hotel staff does speak English. The room is small but clean. The toiletries include shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, a small vanity kit, scrub sponge, and comb. Toothbrush kits are not free.
The room was spacious with a huge bath/bathroom. The room was clean but showing signs of wear and tear. Fridge ,tea /coffee facilities. There was a nice little snack/coffee shop in the foyer . All staff spoke english, were polite and friendly . If people are travelling to Busan for a beach holiday, they need to check out beach rules. Swimming in Korea is strictly prohibited outside of June, July and August.
Benikea is not bad, with coffee and tea facilities in the room, average clean. You will get exactly what you pay for. Good Location, beach is not far, restaurants and coffeeshops around, the heaundae market is walking distance. We did not take Breakfast package so we could sleep in and have breakfast at the market or starbucks. in my room I had a shower cabin right infant of the bed and my sister had a room with the shower cabin right next to her bed. Not clean enough bed linen and towels, shampoo, and shower gel and soup was provided, no sleepers no bathrobe, but with hairdryer. This hotel offered free sauna which is very popular in the area, Lots of guest used it. Very important information about parking, you can only park in their parking normal sedan cars, jeep type cars high cars won't be accepted in their parking.…
My friend and I booked this hotel for one night and it was disappointing. We noticed a dirty tissue next to the sink which questioned how clean the room was. The layout of the room was weird. We had all different parts of the bathroom at almost every corner, toilet by the entrance, see the sink once we get in, and the shower in another corner. Because we didn't have working phones, we needed to make a call to a nearby place and their phones don't allow you to make calls outside of the hotel which I thought was a bit strange.
Nice sized rooms with great onsen facilities. 2 sauna rooms and four large pools with temperatures ranging from 18C to 42C. One of the pools has strong jacuzzi jets. No options for breakfast but lots of eating places within 10 minutes' walk. Airport limousine stop within 10 minutes' walk too.
There was no hot water in the room. Had to move rooms after getting settled in. Very inconvenient. The bathroom of the new room they moved us to smelled of urine. Very Very disappointing. Close to beach but not worth the trouble and price.
Location: good, convenient stores, restaurants nearby, 10mins to the MRT station. Room: it's fine. Services: I have no idea why they always turn the refrigerator to freez my drinks; and the luggage store service cost me 3000won. It just expensive.
Decent room and location, a standard 3* hotel. Rooms are clean, beds are firm, enough space to leave 2 luggages open on the floor, daily housekeeping, spring water shower. The hotel is very close to the beach, walkable to some 5* luxury beachfront hotels and not too far off from the main food and shopping streets, very near the Haeundae Traditional Market. I have not eaten at there (mainly seafood restaurants with eel as the speciality) as I find them a bit touristy and not really the real deal but probably good for first timers. A few minor issues with this hotel: 1. Front desk - if out of 10, their English level would be like 2-3. Without any disrespect, we already use very simple 3 words sentences but could barely converse. For example, we found there was no toiletries after we checked in, so we asked the front desk for some as we were unsure whether they are not included or forgotten to place some. Reception just kept saying no shower gel no no no...Turns out basic shampoo, condition and shower gel are included as housekeeping had added some on day two. Another example was when I asked for the closing time of the sauna, the reception told me the opening time instead which led me to think the sauna is open until 5am...well I should have read that one from the keycard pocket. On agoda, it mentions the hotel speaks English and German, perhaps try to converse in German with them if you happen to know both. 2. Luggage storage fee - even the cheapest hotel, hostel, bnb, typically will allow staying guests to store your luggage free of charge upon check out (so long you don't store overnight). Not with here unfortunately, though it cost next to nothing (3000won), it is rather unusual. About the Sauna (Referring to the ladies sauna only) As a hotel guest, you can use for free. Even non hotel guests can visit with an admission fee. Either way, ask front desk for a ticket and refer to the ticket number for the assigned shoes and clothes locker. *Skip to the next paragraph if you are familiar or been to a Korean or Japanese hot spring sort of place.* Make sure you take your shoes/ slippers off before the curtains, place your footwear inside the locker then pull out the key. Locate the bigger locker inside of the same number. After you unrobe, keep your key and enter the bathhouse. Scrub down thoroughly! When using any hot springs, you must always cleanse yourself before hopping into a tub, otherwise you will contaminate the spring water. There are standing and sitting showers but I don't think it matters which one you use and it doesn't matter if you see some people have placed their toiletries bag or towel around the showers. What to bring? - own toiletries (the sauna only provide soap and it's communal hmmm...some big bottle of toner and lotion assume they are for face not body) -bath sponge (bring the one from your room) - a paper mask (recommended for during or after sauna) - your own cold beverage (there is a mini store where you can purchase snacks, beverages, lotions, anything else that you may need, oddly they also sell some clothing and undergarment) - some cash There are 4 hot spring tubs and 2 sauna rooms. There are 2 massage beds tucked away in the left corner where 2 ahjumas (housewife ladies) are scrubbing away. This is when I discovered there is a full body scrub service for a small additional cost. You are suppose to pay the lady at the tuck shop/ mini store you see after the shoes locker. However, all the staffs at the sauna only speaks Korean, best way is to ask the front desk to help you write down in Korean the service you want. There are about 5-6 services on a board hung in the sauna, starts with Basic at 25k won, Intense....just Back scrub at 18k won. There are no detailed description on what each includes, you will be in for a surprise. I went for the Basic deal and it was a full body scrub where you will experience what it would be like to be a fish getting descaled, and a homemade cucumber facial.…
