“A great place to consider when looking for a place to stay in Haeundae as long as they keep the quality of rooms and service con”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Given the hotels/hostels/other accomodations available, I urge you to consider Hotel Foret if your budget permits. Why? First, location, though hard to pinpoint the first time it's surprisingly near the Haeundae markets, the subway, bus stops and some excellent eating establishments. And that's a big thing given that it had been our first time in Pusan/Busan. Rooms were furnished just right with enough room to not be stuffy. The service by the front desk was the most notable during our stay there as they had been a great help by providing us a way to go about touring the city. Kudos to Mr. Akira, Mr. Kim and the wonderful people of the staff for bearing with the many request we had during our stay there that borders beyond the call of their day to day duties. Price to value, well considering the other options there, I personally consider it as competitive, but as always it's subjective. Thank you for reading this small review, and God bless you all.

This hotel is located at an alley with many other hotel. just look out for Baskin Robins and walked into that alley you will be able to see the hotel. the room is very nice and they have all basic amenities. if you come from the airport using the limousine airport bus, get down at novotel hotel, look for sunset hotel and just walk straight until you see baskin robins.

This Hotel is located in an alley kind of. At first look it didnt look so nice but once you get inside it actually looked pretty Nice. The hotel is a little hard to find. To find it you take the Exit 3 from the haeundae station and keep going straight until you see baskin robbins and then take right and then the first left and you will find it. The room was nice with an international power outtage to charghe your phone etc. Staff was very friendly and helpfull and can speak english.

This is a difficult one

Service in the reception and breakfast area - 5 star. Verry good! Always helpful and always smiling.
Breakfast - 3 star - okei - limited buffet, but ok if you do not want to go out. Personally dd not think it gave value to the price.
Location - 4 star if you want to be close to the beach - 1 star if you want to be close to the "city centre" (BIFF-area). Took a good 45 minutes by taxi or an hour by Metro to get to Busan Station.
Laundry - do it yourself free washing machine and dryer in the basement - 5 star and fantastic after a week+ travelling with kids.
Room: We had booked a family suite. What we had not noticed was that the sleeping area for the kids was something called Yo-matresses... it they slept on the floor. They tried it the first night, but was just too hard. Asked for 2 extra beds for night no 2, which we got, - it helped some, but not great.
The double bed was ok size, duvet and pillows good, -but matress way too hard :-( 2 stars
Free wifi - 5 stars:-)
First room we got had a terrible smell in the bathroom that did not disapear overnight. It was so bad I could not go in there. We considered moving to another hotel, but the receptionist gave us a new room right away, and this was without any smell. However we could smell it in the hallway of the same floor. Gave a not so good impression.

It was ok for 2 nights, but would probably not enjoyed stay there any longer.
Does not help with smiling receptionists and free wifi when I cannot sleep good at night!

The biggest problem I had was finding the hotel in the first place which was most frustrating although the location is very good once you are settled in. The staff was not that friendly and very indifferent and i had problem with the credit card which they claimed was my fault but this on hind sight was not the case so check in took a little while. The hotel was a little soulless with some nice design. The rooftop restaurant was nice but very quiet and you can just see the sea through the buildings. Breakfast was also served there and the staff are very nice there and helpful. They knew more about the town and how to get to places fopr my meetings than the reception desk staff.

The rooms are standard with a small tiny bathroom shower but a very small wardrobe and thought the bed was a little too hard for my likings but this is not unusual in this part of the work.

The hotel is surrounded by bars and restaurant but this was off season so a little quite. As you have breakfast upstairs you are likely to go elsewhere for dinner so I can not make comments on the food for lunch or dinner. The breakfast buffet is nice with an average amount of choice.

I came here with family but I definitely want to come back to Hotel Foret with my friends. The rooms are clean and they have all the necessary toiletries, which was a lifesaver because I had forgotten my toothbrush. The staffs are friendly and I had no problems with communicating with them, one of them even spoke Japanese. Although it was difficult to find at first, once you know where it is, you’re good to go. Even though it was hard to find, there are many things to do near the hotel. If you have no sense of direction just remember that it is near Lord Beach Hotel or the Queen Motel. We had breakfast and lunch at the restaurant, Le Loft, and it was delicious. Breakfast was a mixture of Americanized/Korean whereas lunch was Italian.
