I just came back from Busan and I stayed at Toyoko Inn for one night. I had trouble finding the place at first because I didn't realize how far the hotel was from the subway station. But that meant that the hotel was very close to the beach, which is a +1 for me.
The check-in was pleasant and the staff at the concierge were very attentive in answering all of my questions. The room itself was small, but what you would expect at a Japanese business hotel. But it has all the necessities (fridge with 2 complimentary bottles of water, slippers, a safe etc) you would need in a hotel room. Upon check in, the concierge will give you one soap and there are toothbrushes and toothpastes available for purchase.
The only reason why I took off a star was because of the breakfast. I've had a fabulous complimentary breakfast at another business hotel in Tokyo and this did not compare. Yes, I realize that this is in Busan but still. The "Asian" part of the food was so-so with white rice, eggs, miso soup, sausages and cole-slaw etc. I wish they vamped up the western portion because only white bread, strawberry jam and butter were available. I missed seeing more variety in pastries and there were no fruits or milk at all. OJ and coffee were available.
Overall, the hotel is a good value and I would go back especially because of the location and the friendly staff.
