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.

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.

This is a easy access Motel from airport, train or bus station as there is a good metro system in Busan and the place is next to the famous Jagalchi market, more shopping stores & restaurants than you need and an intensive underground market from where you can join the famous Lotte Tower Aqua Mall who produce, by the way,...

The motel is close to Jagalchi fish market, PIFF square, and Nampo underground shopping mall, but is still in a quiet street so the sounds of the city don´t disturb at night. There are convenience stores just a minute-walk away (GS25 and Ministop). Both local and western bars and restaurants are located around PIFF square. Our Ondol room had a... More
