“Excellent stay, great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Highly recommended to stay here. The rooms were great, clean and facilities adequate. Location is very convenient and near (5-10 min walking distance) to the main attractions - Jagalchi fish market, Nampo-dong cultural street, Gukje market. The owner is very friendly, speaks english and recommends you places to visit, how to get there and help plan your itinerary. Service was well beyond our expectation. We inquired about hiring a taxi (due to complications related to luggages) but he took the initiative to drive us there at a very very cheap price (cheaper than subway, go figure). It is definitely extra goodwill on his part.

I had a very good experience in this place. I travelled to Busan with my mom and stayed here. The location is excellent. It is right next to Yongdusan park where the Busan Tower is located. It is near the train stations and tourist spots. The room is big and the bed is big. We were given a discount for our 3-days stay which we didnt expect. The room is complete with appliances and toiletries. The bathroom is also big with sauna and bathtub. The tv is super big also. The owner is very nice and speaks good English. If i will return to Busan someday, I would definitely stay here again. Now i know why this place ranks first among the places to stay in Busn.

We stayed for two nights and were very happy with this motel. It is right in the center of Busan, near the tower, the shopping street and the fish market. The owner of the hotel is really nice and helpful and provided us with lots of helpful tips such as two restaurants. We tried one of them, a sashimi place he suggested near the fishmarket and it was great. It seemed to be really popular amongst locals.

The owner perfectly speaks English. The room of the hotel was very nice, big and clean. The bathroom event had a wirlpool and a steembath which we did not try. There were some good movies we could watch for free and everything you need in a hotel room such as a computer with internet, fridge, drinking water dispenser, bathrobes, body lotion, shampoo, etc.
We paied 50000 won for the room per night which was rather cheap (not the cheapest) compared to other hotels we saw in Busan.

We can really recommend this place and will go back if we come to Busan again.

Typical Korean "love" motel with nice bathroom and quite big room with tv and computer. It is close to the Busan tower with its wonderful view. The staff is friendly and helpful and shows everything on the map. You get Wifi on the room if you ask for it and pay a deposit um.

Stayed there just after the Chinese New Year long weekend. What a pleasant stay!

ROOMS: The rooms are big and comfortable with everything you expect. It's a little bit dated but everything works well and it is clean. There was however no p.c/internet.
BATHROOM: Giant bathroom with both a bath and a shower, with the shower in our room (on the 4th floor) also having a steam room function!
BEDDING: Some provided but we requested additional comfoters and the hotel staff promptly and brought us more.
TOILETRIES: All usual toiletries provided.
TV: There is a wide selection of (hollywood) movies on demand that you can request the owner to play for you and it was all free.
CUSTOMER SERVICE: The owner of the hotel speaks excellent English. Extremely friendly and helpful and willing to point you in the right directions for food/nightlife/scenery etc. They also stored our bags for us after checkout and responded to emails in English prior to our arrival. He also provided a map and highlighted all the attractions around the hotel.
COST: It was definitely one of the cheaper motels/hotels we have stayed in for what was provided.
LOCATION: Excellent location right next to Busan Tower, a few minutes walk from the Busan Film Festival nightlife area with restaurants, bars and cinemas and very close to the subway station and Ferry terminal which is a plus.

Definitely worth another visit for the next time I head down to Busan!

Room Tip: Ask the manager for a map. He will explain where all the best attractions around the hotel is.
