“Old hotel with good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2010

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights the room was spacious able to accomodate 3 single beds with room for another additional bed. The hotel is located at the foot of the Busan tower and a 3min walk to Nampo station link via underground to Lotte shopping mall. Area is the main shopping belt for young people with many eating places and within walking distance to the famous Jagalchi fish market.

A network cable is provided at the dresser but a fee is required to surf the internet. Hot srping water is accessible from the bathroom showers which leaves your skin smooth after showering. Hotel staff are able to understand and speak basic english, overall an enjoyable stay eventhough the room is old.

If you arrive by ferry from the mainland Busan Tourist Hotel is just off the harbor next to this big Busan Tower so it is really easy to find. There are a lot of coffee shops and restaurants around which is very good because the hotel restaurant is quite expensive. Our room was big and comfortable but I think the building should get a makeover every once in a while. All in all it was ok though.

My 2 children (aged 7 and 10) and I stayed 2 nights at the Busan Tourist Hotel. I decided on this hotel based on other reviews and was not disappointed. As another reviewer wrote, I made a reservation by telephone and was not required to guarantee it with a credit card. The location was excellent for exploring Busan on foot -- the fish market, night market, tower, shops, and restaurants were all within easy walking distance of the hotel, with the international ferry terminal just a 3000 won taxi ride away. They had a room with 3 single beds to accommodate us and, although as others have noted this is not a new hotel, our room was spacious and clean. I noticed that the bathroom in our room had been nicely redone, too. It was quiet at night, too, being on a side street rather than a main thoroughfare. The convenience store on the lobby level was useful, and the staff were helpful in pointing us towards where we wanted to go. Many staff members on the front desk speak both English and Japanese. We opted not to dine at the hotel's restaurant, so I can't comment on the food (tip: we went 2 or 3 doors down to a little coffee shop that had a fabulous breakfast set for much less than the hotel restaurant's offering). I will definitely stay at this hotel again if I find myself in Busan again.

Stayed July 2009, traveled with family

We had a very pleasant stay at Busan tourist hotel. The staff was very nice, spoke good english and always smiled. The room was clean but in the ten days that we were staying there I don´t think they vaccum-cleaned the floor once.
In the lobby there was a 7-eleven shop and there is free internet in the room. We had breakfast at the hotel once and it was nice but too expensive.
The hotel is right beside Busan tower soo it´s always very easy to find your way back. I liked the location very much, it´s just a few minutes from the ferry terminal and about ten minutes to kukje market and PIFF square where theres alot of shops and restaurants open day and night.
The neighbourhood felt very safe with alot of restaurants and coffe shops on the street.
I will stay at Busan tourist hotel the next time I wisit Busan again.

I called to check the hotel rate and got confirmed via phone without request for credit card guarantee. The hotel is at a quiet small road but only 5 mins walking distance to the shopping area and 10 mins to the famous Fish Market. There are 7-Eleven and coffee shop just at the front door of the hotel.
The hotel is a bit old but clean and spacious with window that can be opened inside the room.
