Easy enough access to the subway, bus stop at the door step (to/fro Busan downtown), few minutes walk to dining spots (local & western) and Gwangali Beach. Hotel is directly across the road from KBS Busan ie. excellent landmark to tell the taxi driver. Bus or train stops will also mention KBS - thumbs up!
Room was modern & well-equipped. Room door was a little stuck at times. Other than coffee/tea facilities, they also gave little biscuits. All complimentary. Flat screen TV was real big. Bathroom spacious too. We took the traditional room (sleeping on the floor) as we wanted the local experience plus it was cheaper. Only tricky bit was the heated floor - the thermostat seemed to have a mind of its own and keep rising, had to keep turning over to avoid getting singed. Fortunately, we could open the window and let in the cool breeze. View outside faced the main road & KBS Building - our room looked into the carpark but there were beautiful cherry blossom trees in full bloom to make up for no beach view. The room also had double windows which spared us from the traffic noise. There was complimentary PC usage at the reception as well as a microwave oven - kinda strange to see them side by side. Wouldn't there be EM interference if someone was reading emails and nuking food at the same time? Lift broke down one day but the staff directed us to the service lift which worked just as well. There's indoor parking for those who drive.
On morning of departure, heavy rain beset Busan. Helpful staff called us a taxi and when none showed, he went out to the roadside to hail one down. Good on him!
