From the outside, the hotel didn't inspire confidence that we had made the right decision to stay there, and to confuse us further, the reception was located on the 9th floor, which meant we had to drag all our luggages up there as we happened to be packed full. Then we had to cramp our luggages into the lift again to get to our assigned floor.

However, once we stepped into our room, we were met with a modern layout with a comfortable double bed. It was a tight squeeze even for the two of us, but a bit of imagination in using confined spaces meant we could walk around the room without falling on each other.

For a room this small, we were surprised to see a full bath in the ensuite, as well as a 2nd vanity outside the ensuite just adjacent to the wardrobe. Storage was limited but adequate, and it was clear this room was certainly not designed for long stay guests.

We found the airconditioning inadequate in cooling our room even though it was sub zero Celsius outside. A request the next day to have it checked out resulted in a marginal improvement, and we still needed to have the temperature setting at the lowest possible to feel reasonably comfortable. We're from Australia where it's summer and the temps are in the mid to high thirties, so it's not a question of acclimatisation. We're quite sure something was wrong with the aircon system.

Apart from this, we were happy with the room and facilities. The TV had the most number of channels of any hotel in our 3 week travel staying at 6 hotels. I counted more than 200 channels of viewing, the vast majority in Korean of course.

The location of the hotel was excellent, being just a couple of minutes walk from Haeundae Beach. It's also handy to numerous restaurants, fast food joints, and western chain restaurants that made it more "homely" for us. It was also opposite the Haeundae Market which featured live seafood of every species imaginable.

If you have 2-3 hours to spare, I recommend strolling along the beach to the APEC Nurimaru House on Dongbaekseom Island towards the Gwangan Bridge. It's a very refreshing and scenic route, and there's plenty to see along the way. You must bring your camera with you.

If you want to go outside of Haeundae Beach, the subway and bus services are about half a kilometer away and quite convenient.

This hotel didn't seem to provide any other services except for the standard reception and housekeeping. They did have a restaurant which provided breakfast, but we didn't try it out.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay for us with the convenience of the location being a major plus. If we ever plan to stay there again, we'll have to remember to reduce our personal baggage !

This hotel is a block from Haeundae Beach which is quite convenient. It has quite a few positives about it but the negatives keep it from being a four star. We booked our room for 3 thinking it would have 3 twin beds, but apparently, "Ondol" means the Korean mats and no beds. Fortunately, the front desk was kind enough to give us a room with a double bed where one of us slept on a mat and we could upgrade to a room with 2 twins and a sofa the next day. The rooms are very clean with heated floors and Korean style to take your shoes off once inside. They offer large size shampoo and bath wash to use which is pretty nice. If you want conditioner you're screwed with the crappy quality minis they give. The twin deluxe is pretty roomy and very comfortable. The only thing that bothered me was the stench of the sewage permeating from the drain. It was pretty unavoidable every time I had to use the bathroom. Complimentary breakfast is offered here too which is nice, and I hate to blast it for the friendly, nice service. However, don't expect awesome. Everything is usually cold despite the attempt to keep it warm on a ceramic plate over hot water on a warmer. There isn't much variety either. The milk for the coffee was curdling one morning. It does the job. WiFi is reliable in the lobby, but not so much in the room even with a router tacked to the ceiling in the hallway. They have the A-team on during the day who speaks English and offers excellent service. After hours, you can expect some challenges if you can't speak Korean. They're nice enough. If you're checking out but still want to hang around, they will keep your bags behind the counter which is convenient. Overall, the important thing is a comfortable place to sleep which is of paramount importance.

This hotel is in the center of Haeundae Beach. If you turn right when walking out of the hotel entrance, you will be walking directly towards the beach and the aquarium entrance. None of the hotels are really right on the beach. There is a street that runs right in front of the beach and then the hotels run down several intersecting streets. To enter the hotel, go into the elevator and up to the lobbyl. We got a corner room suite and I thought it was very nice. It had wood (or wood looking) floors, nice bedding, and a large bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub overlooking the beach. There are some buildings in front of this hotel, but they aren't as tall so that you can still see the beach from this suite. The hotel room was clean, quiet, and had some toiletries offered. I thought things for purchase were clearly labeled. There is also a mini-fridge with some things for purchase. We went to one of the stores right across the street or at the corner for water and snacks. It was very convenient. At the base of the building is Burger and Pasta with a variety of food and good drinks. There was also a Dunkin Donuts across the street; great for coffee in the mornings; a traditional market is a few steps away from there walking away from the beach and is worth taking a look.

Room Tip: Try the corner suites for great views.

We stayed in a standard double room on a Sunday and Monday evening. Our room itself, on the 13th floor, was nice. Great views and a decently comfy bed. However, the thumping base from whatever restaurant/club from wherever could be heard throughout the night. I read reviews about the noise, but was hoping that being on a higher floor would help. Not so much. It was better on Monday night, but only because the scene was much more subdued.

Strangely, when we came back to our hotel room on Monday from being out all day, cigarette smoke smell came wafting through the bathroom (we were in a non-smoking room.) We had to shut the door and turn on the bathroom fan to prevent the whole room from filling with cigarette smoke smell.

Finally, there was an issue with the free breakfast with room - I booked through asiarooms.com, and that showed that one breakfast per room was included. However, the front desk was hesitant to give us the free meal coupons, as the price we paid didn't include a breakfast according to their matrix ofpratts. I had to show my confirmation email that showed proof of breakfast. (By the way, paying the additional 10,000KRW for another person for breakfast isn't really worth it.)

I'm not sure I'd stay again, but the price was right, and the location was good for a trip in November.
