Arirang hotel in Busan is good for Budget travellers. It is located right next to Busan station and too close to Metro station. Busan city bus tour also starts from here. I stayed here in 2004,2005 and 2014. The room rent for one day is 45,000 won (approximately in all the time). In the weekend, they charge around 50,000 won... More

Stayed here a couple of times, its convenient as its right across the street from Busan Station. If you're travelling here to get the boat to Japan, its very handy as its quite near the port as well. However, it is not the best. It's old, the tv's didn't work (not that I would have understood what was on anyway!),... More

Pros: Location: Right outside Busan station. You can take the subway, bus, or Busan City Tour Bus to all the attractions in Busan. Price: 42,000 won walk in rate for a clean, spacious room with a queen bed and a twin bed, table and chairs, mini fridge, cable TV, and a bathtub (sometimes a rarity in Korea)! Cleanliness!! Cons: No... More

I stayed here for two weeks. Yes, it's tired, but it's only w35,000 a night! If you want luxury, go somewhere else and pay more. You can find cheaper places in Busan by walking around, but you absolutely won't find a cheaper place on the Internet before you get there (at least not at the time I'm writing this.) My... More

I discovered this hotel inadvertently at the square in front of Busan Station (train station). I was so attracted by their price (W39000@) for single room. Upon my request, they were kind to allow me to view the room before I decided to stay for 3 nights totally. Hotel in and out is very tired, dim, not pleasant looking, especially... More

The location of Arirang just cannot be better, it's right outsaide the Buan train station, just an easy 1 min walk! Besides, the room rate is really cheap., the price does reflect the quality. A few good things are that rooms are in good size, relatively quiet for the double window. Every room has a desktop computer equipped with broadband,... More

Although this hotel is very old and worn out it has a great location to the Busan Station and is cheap. We were able to have 2 rooms for 72,000won and one had a computer. There was a funny smell to the rooms but they both had opening windows so we just aired the room both days! Very large rooms... More
