Elysee Motel was the perfect stay in Busan and is a short five-ten minute walk from the Nampo Metro Station. Mr. Sun was always responsive to my emails and a credit card was not required to book a room (a ten percent premium is charged if you use a credit card to pay for the room though). Mr. Sun let me check-in until I got some currency exchanged with one of the many money changers located near the motel. A map of the area/sights was provided and explained upon check-in and a map with directions to a laundrymat was provided upon request.
I stayed in a very large room with a large big screen TV with several English-speaking channels (around 100 channels total), a DVD player is in the room, and complimentary movies can be ordered by contacting the front desk. A large private bathroom and sauna with more than adequate hot water and an excellent air conditioner was always available. No breakfast is provided. I was impressed that an emergency fire escape ladder was in the room. When you enter the elevator a voice greets you in Korean.
The ceiling above the bed was interesting and different, a table with two chairs and two nightstands were in the room, a mini-fridge for storing water/soda/etc, a fan, coffee and tea and a hot/cold water dispenser was in the room. Free and fast wi-fi, bathrobes, hair dryer, toiletries and soft/hard pillows were available for use as well. They provide sheer and full drapes and screened and non-screened windows. Mr. Sun also helped me reserve a seat on the Busan City Bus Night Tour after I gave him 10,000 Won (both the day and night tours are 10,000 won each) and he used his credit card and provided a receipt. If you want to take the night tour, I encourage you book early as I couldn't get a seat reserved for several days.
I would strongly recommend this motel to any traveler desiring very reasonably priced lodging and an excellent room right smack dab in the middle of the Nampo area. Elysee Motel was selected as a Tripadvisor's Travellers' Choice 2013 Winner - I selected this motel based on this recognition and can vouch they are clearly deserving of this rating.
