The whole hotel is old but the location is great. Walked a few minutes and subway, lotte department store can be reached. However the rooms were full of smoke smell. Buffet breakfast had limited choices and re-fill were slow. Stayed for sleeping was fine. Have free wifi at room.

Satisfactory 2 out of 5 Well situated in shopping and touristic part of Busan. City market, public transport, several shopping malls and Busan Tower in vicinity. Older hotel, needs refreshment. Rooms have strong cigarettes smell although I asked for non-smoking room. Restaurant offering only few dishes. Just a snacks, no proper meals. Breakfast offers mainly Asian food. Staff speaking poor... More

Stayed here one night and that was too many. Rooms are dirty, smell like cigarettes, and the carpet is dirty. We would not walk on the carpet without shoes. If they charge more than 50.00 a night, it's too much. The front desk staff are rude and stated we could not have more towels when all we had was 2... More

We stayed at this hotel that was arranged through our travel agent as part of a 2-day tour, I thought the place was incredible! You really get the Asian old-style hotel feel here. It was close to the main drag where the shops were, street stalls of food were scattered around it and the atmosphere was just awesome. The room... More

Centrally located in the Busan Original Downtown area, this hotel is located close to many cafes, outdoor and fashion shops, street stalls, underground shopping arcades, 5 minutes to the tallest tower within Yongdusan park and two subways stations within 10 minutes walk. The hotel itself is however a bit underwhelming. As per the previous few reviewers' accounts, the hotel room... More

The hotel is very well located, near the main streets where there are many shops and restaurants, as well BIFF (Busan International Film Festival), with theaters. They also have night street fairs, with thousands of tourists. It is not far from Jagalchi Fish Market, a very interesting place to visit and see live marine animals for sale to restaurants and...

We booked the hotel as part of a round trip in South Korea, so we did not really have a choice. The hotel looked o.k. when we entered the lobby, but the staff was not very freindly and welcoming. In my opinion this is unusal for Korea, and we never experienced it anywhere else. The location of the hotel is... More

After reading reviews of the hotel I was apprehensive but always like to find out for myself. The purpose of our stay was for a wedding at oase in jagalchi market so the location for that was very good. Upon arrival it seemed promising as the bell boy took my bag but then left it in the middle of the... More
