Toyoko Inn Busan No.1
Ranked #23 of 156 Hotels in Busan
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Our family stayed for 3days at the hotel.

Storing Point
-Good location : Railway station, subway station & bus stop is within walking distance.
-Reasonable price : Double B (a little bigger than Doulble A) costs about $70 per night.
Although the room is quite small but it has almost everything you need.
-Breadfast : Basic brearkfast is included
(Bread & milk, vending machine coffee, steamed egg, salad)

Weak Point
-Check in & out time : Check in 4pm, 10am respectively
-Kindess : quite difficult to find kindneess at the reception desk.
-Elevator : when you check out at around 10am, you would not give up using elevator.
(they have 3 elevators but capacity doesn't meet demand)

In my concept, the Group of Tokoyo Inn has small room. Since one of my travel companions is highly recommended this Inn, we booked 2 twin rooms + 1 single room (we have 5 persons) for 3 separate nights.

As we stayed there for 3 nights, you'd better applying to be member when check-in. Once you become member and you will benefit from room rate discount immediately. The membership fee is 15,000won / person. For us, we booked 3 rooms and then 3 of them applied to be members.

For location, the Inn is located besides Busan Train Station and just 2 mins walk from Metro - Busan Station exit 6. It is very convenient to travel by train or metro.

Room is tidy , clean and small which we had already expected but enough for us. You can wash your clothes at washing machine in the lobby. The staff is nice, helpful & good English speaking. Breakfast is free w/ Korea & Western style, of course not much choice but good taste.

If you need to travel w/ train, I am highly recommended this Inn to you.

Directions: walk 5 steps out of the train station, make a left, walk along the station, come to a corner, walk 15 steps diagonally, crossing the road and you are there. Do not walk pass the fountains! Pros: Japanese stye toilet, although room is small, the bed is by a window, so you don't feel claustrophobic. Eat breakfast at 7 am and you will get sausages, rice, toast, 2-3 salads, milk. The soup is not good, there is no juice. There is coffee, but usually a line. If you're on the 20-21 foor, you will get an empty elevator. If you're below and trying to check out, you might take the elevator up to the 20th floor and ride it back down. You will be asked if you want your room cleaned. If it's not dirty, just ask for towels which they will put outside your room around 5 pm. Note: use the safe in your room because when cleaning, many doors are open and anyone can walk in your room. To lock your safe, enter 4 numbers and a # sign. To open, enter the 4 numbers. Staff spoke excellent English.
Cons: cleaning the room takes a long time, don't expect them to finish until 3 or 4 pm.

Room Tip: I was on the 20th floor and liked it.

We arrived by ferry from Osaka and found it a fairly easy walk from the terminal to the hotel. We chose it because it was a chain hotel (you always know what you're going to get, and sometimes, predictability is comforting) and it was right by Busan Station (so we knew we wouldn't get lost on the way to the KTX platform, although having managed to hoof it from the ferry terminal to the hotel, perhaps we underestimated our navigation skills).

The hotel was clean, warm and welcoming, and with a free breakfast buffet, satellite TV and a room on a higher floor with mountain views, I thought it was the perfect welcome to South Korea.

The only snag was that I hadn't realised that check-in time is 4pm! We were able to park our bags in the lobby and head out to explore the town.

The only minor negative was that the hotel was crowded - the lobby, the lifts, the breakfast room, the corridors. But South Korea is a populous nation and Busan is a busy port, so this is par for the course, really.

I would recommend this hotel for short stays in Busan.

The hotel's location is great. It is located right next to the Busan Train Station and a subway station. Infront of the hotel is also the terminal for the city tour bus service. One street away is China Town. The breakfast is very basic. All in all, the hotel is great value for a decent place to stay the night and a fantastic location to get to places you want to go.

It was about 10 o'clock at night when I arrive Toyoko Hotel. On entering the lobby, the receptionist offered warm welcome and professional service. I had a single room for one night. The room is not big and the toilet is rather small. However, it is a nice hotel if the size is ignored. Before I went to bed, I went to the FamilyMart out side the Hotel for some food. It is really convenient. I slept like a log and felt energetic in the morning for the coming meeting. I woke up on time and had breakfast. Unfortunately, both coffee machines were down on March 14th, 2012. I hope they are fine now. I will surely book a room in Toyoko Hotel next time when I have a business trip in Busan. 到達Toyoko Hotel時已經是晚上10點。在我進入旅館大廳時,服務人員給了我們溫暖的問候以及專業的服務。我入住了一間單人房,只住一晚。房間不大,廁所有點小。但是不看這個的話,是間相當不錯的房間。睡覺前,我到飯店外面的便利商店買了些東西吃,挺方便的。我睡得很好,一早起來精神飽滿,有力氣開會了。可惜的是,飯店的兩台咖啡機都壞了(2012年3月14號早上)。希望他們現在都好了。我下次到釜山出差,還是會來住這間吧。
