“Comfortable stay, fast internet”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

t was a comfortable stay at Lamer Hotel. The only gripe would be there is no sign to indicate 'no room service/do not make up room' and we got a shock when we found our items rearranged after returning back to the room on our 1st day. Nothing went missing.

Chose to stay here because we just need a place to crash a few hours before catching an early flight out from Gimhae Aiport the next morning. Ok, I'm gonna be totally honest here: it's the best place I've stayed at for this CHEAP of a price, so I gave it a very good rating, even though I can't say I enjoyed my stay. Was traveling with my family and we booked 2 rooms: 1st room, very clean. Except.... we made the mistake of opening the mini-fridge and it smelled like something had died in there! The fridge wasn't running because there is a switch on the dresser top that controls the power for the various outlets, and it had been turned off -- they might want to re-think that set-up! 2nd room, very clean. Except... the bathroom smelled so bad that literally had to seal it off and go downstairs to use the one in my parent's room. It's an older building so I think there must be plumbing issues. Arrived very late at night so we felt bad trying to contact the on-call staff to switch rooms, so we stuck it out by opening the windows and sleeping in our winter coats. It was a rough, smelly night, but we comforted ourselves by splurging the next day using all the money we saved by staying at this place! All in all: dated but determined little hotel with clean but tiny rooms, heated floors, good location though a bit hard to find initially.

My friend booked the hotel from Booking.com. There are 4 of us, so we took 2 double rooms. The room is very clean. The toilet has a bath tub. A little old but clean. The hotel provides all the basic amenities. Toiletries, hair dryer, towel, coffee, electric kettle, drinking water and etc. Free wifi in the hotel's lobby and inside room. Overall me and my friends were satisfied with the room.

Most of the hotel staffs didn't speak English. They only understand Korean. However, they are very helpful and polite. One of the girl help us to call the taxi and become the translator to the taxi driver. The girl also suggested few places and nice restaurants when we have no idea where to go.

The location of the hotel is ok. 10 minute walk to the nearest subway station. We also walked around 20-30minutes to the Young Street. However, it is quite far from Gwanggali and Haeundae. We took a taxi to Haeundae from the hotel, costs us around 14,000 won (for 4 of us) which is considered cheap.

Like many people I unable to read enough Korea to use a Korean booking site and therefore often have to stay in average and overpriced hotels. However that is not the case with the New Life Tourist in Busan. It was one of the cheapest I could find at short notice, and I was so glad I stayed there. The room and bathroom where spotless and the other facilities which the Hotel offer where great, mainly free the wifi. The staffs English is limited but they tried hard. The location is good about 5mins walk to the subway station and maybe only a W5000 Taxi ride to Busan Station and W10000 to Haeundae.

Room Tip: Use the free Wifi
