This hotel looks better on the outside than inside. It's a great location right on the beach with beautiful views, esp at night. The rooms are old & in need of new carpeting. Our A/C did not work well until the night. Son, at front desk was helpful with adapters, & got us breakfast vouchers. Would not stay here again

We stayed at the Hotel Aqua Palace for New Year's Eve 2013/14. We were lucky enough to get a special deal for a sea view room.. The room was great. It was clean and nicely decorated. We loved the extra touches, such as wine glasses, free hand warmers and blankets, great toiletries and large towels. The best thing about the... More

Paid 218,000 for a triple room right on the beach. Location is great...walk right out and hit the beach but when we arrived, they first gave us a room that hadn't been cleaned. Changed rooms to a triple with a great view of the beach. Room however is still dirty and has an odd smell. Took a while for AC... More

the view is good. The molds grew into 1 inch wide band all round the bathtub and basin made me sick. Stale room. Really run down. If you want budget hotel go for ibis. Not this 5 star disguise which is not qualified for 2 stars. The lift had a temporary vampire red velvet rose draped out of horror movies.... More

Needs some repairs and updating. For the price the location is great, nice view from the window, but the room is dated and hotel could use some repairs. Tom and Tom's coffee downstairs, great for a morning coffee! Not sure about the reviewer who said he needed to be in a suit, we were in shorts and jeans and no... More

The view from the room and the spa was great!! however, the service that i got from this hotel made me to think again coming to Busan. I understand how many people are coming and going during the Busy Summer season, but this was just unforgettable and made worst perception of Busan. The service that i got was...nothing!! they did...

Hotel rooms and facilities are built to three-star standard, with basic facilities. However, the place is aging quite rapidly and it shows everywhere (rusty faucets, mold in corners, peeling off paint and wallpaper). We also had another problem that the AC was not working, and the room (sea-facing) was heating up to 32 degrees centigrade (according to the in-room meter).... More

This place was nice in general and High Tech. We decided to stay a much nicer hotel after my sister won a lot a the casino so we stayed here. The place was over all nice looking but the room was tiny. The view was fantastic. The best thing about this hotel was the fact that it was fantastic. I... More
