I had a pre-paid booking from Expedia for Samwonjang Motel but as I arrived, it seems that no one knew about it. They offered two rooms to me: one with european bed and one with korean ondol floor sleeping. As the korean style room did not look very nice, I choosed the one with the european bed. The Motel is...

I had booked a room through hostel world and received an email 4 days before I was due in busan saying that the room is no longer available. I just find this unacceptable, I like to be organised and know where I am going. Also the international film festival is on now so many of the cheaper decent hotels are... More

My wife and I spent three nights here while visiting Busan. When we arrived we found we would be in one room for the first night and would then move to another room for the next two nights. The first room was on the first floor which made for great access. Unfortunately, when we showed up at 1400 they still... More

The room was clean but we had no windows, it looked like it was last refurbished in the 1970s and it was quite small. I still recommend it though because it was priced accordingly and I believe the most important quality is cleanliness. The staff were friendly and the location is PERFECT! I think I remember a water cooler to... More

This place is a dive. We stayed here on the strength of the other tripadvisor reviews which was a mistake. Eaten alive by Mosquitos during the night and also had to ask the staff to remove a gigantic cockroach from a light shade. I was expecting a small, basic room but wasn't expecting it to be so dingy. The aged... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here 3 nights in mid May. The location, a very short walk to both the Jagalchi Market and the BIFF Square is unbeatable for the price. It is pretty quiet for being in such a busy area. They have free wifi that works well and our room had a tv and AC ( we didn't... More

Its located very closed to main sightseeing spots. We booked there because of cheap roomrate. If you are ok with small room, minimum service, then this is the best place for you. There was no bathtowel (only large face towel is provided), and I felt that the room was a wet and a bit dirty.
