I've enjoyed my stay in Illua hotel. The rooms were clean and quite big. Staff barely speaks English, so it is very difficult to communicate with them on even the smallest matters. Me and my colleagues spent about half an hour at reception when we arrived, just because of the fact that the guy there didn't understand us AT ALL.... More

I stayed at Hotel Illua for 4 nights in May. It wasn't as hard to find as everyone else has been saying. You just have to say the name correctly. It's located on the top of a hill and you can see all of Haeundae Beach. The restaurant was being renovated and there didn't seem to be a start and... More

The hotel and the surroundings were lovely. However, despite the fact that it was not a cheap hotel (U$213), the front desk and the management were very disappointing and failed to resolve the situation. Around 1:30AM in the morning, there were noises next-door. People were screaming and it was so loud we could not sleep. We called the front desk,... More

Went to Busan 2 months ago during peak season and could only get accommodation at Haeundae area at this hotel on short notice. A little overpriced for the Ocean view room but the view was worth it. Heard that they hiked up the prices almost 75% more during weekend of peak season. The Bed was soft and clean, window was... More

After having read the only comment in TA, I was a bit worried. The hotel was seclected as it was basically the only one where I could find a room during the very busy period of Kormarine exhibition. As it happened, it was a pleasant surprise. It is located at the end of the Haeundae-gu beach in Busan, going uphill,... More

I had one of the deluxe rooms with a balcony, great view in the morning. Room is clean, spacious and comfortable. Bathroom accessories are a bit worn and tired.

The overall service of the hotel was poor. The view is nice, but the hotel is not on the airport shuttle route. You have to stop at a nearby hotel and take a taxi. If you don't mind that, the location isn't bad. Fairly close to many restaurants and 10-15 minute walk to a metro station.
