"Nice but noisy"
21st January 2013, qyylsw, Melb
We had a room fantastic room with beautiful view of the beach and sea. The hotel is located close to the aquarium and restaurants. The accomodation was nice and neat but could do with a bit of upgrading. The hotel staffs were friendly and helpful. The only downside was the sound profing of the room especially when the guests next door was noisy!!View management response »

"Breakfast only served at Executive lounge"
31st August 2012, gencom, Seoul, South Korea
If you stay in Executive rooms, you can only have breakfast in Executive lounge.In case of other hotels, we can choose restaurant between executive lounge and lobby. The room was clean even though furniture is little bit antique and restroom is little bit small. The View on lounge is also quite good.
"there is something in need of improvement"
16th August 2012, binochet
I stayed one night. I had some terrible experience of check in.The front says my room was upgraded and because the room cleaning was not finished i had to wait at club lounge for 1 hour.After 1 hour, i came to my room and i was shocked that the room was hot(28"c) and had some bad smell.I phoned the front but they said just wait.It made me angry and my voice loud.After my strong complaints, a front desk guy cmae and chaged my room to the original i booked.wWhat i want to say is the front desk should not say just wait, i wiil send youa air conditioner guy.They must come to the room and find what the problem is.In addition, I had to say that the club lounge needs improvement of service.The lounge seemed in lack of staffs and they did seldom smiled.So that reduced my deire of revisit.A korean guy
"It was very nice."
13th August 2012, m00g00, Wonju, South Korea
The location is just in front of famous beach with nice view. Public transportaion to city center and POI was very convenient. I stayed 1 night with executive package. Executive floor has their own lounge and wonderful sea view. The breakfast was free and quality was not bad. I had a good time.
"Excellent location and service"
18th July 2012, moosepark, Seoul, South Korea
The hotel was in an excellent location. I requested a non-smoking room but the room smelled of smoke. We stayed in a corner suite and the ocean view was excellent. I think that we shouldn't have had to pay fifty something dollars for an extra bed. All in all the location was right in the middle of Haeundae Beach, and there were many stores around so it was convenient.

"Good hotel - mediocre personnel"
11th April 2012
We stay at the hotel from time to time since 1999 (first it was Hyatt, then Marriott, now Novotel). Rooms well maintained/renovated. "Hardware" allk as expected in such kind of hotel. Location directly at the beach.Problem area: Unprofessional staff seems to be very concerned with their working time instead of setting priority to good service:1. Room service call was answered after long, long ringing at the third try only.2. Club Esprit sauna: Entered 45 minutes before closure at 10pm. Staff cleaned up and left at 10pm although there were still about 3 guests besides me. Furthermore the counter was not manned anymore (10:15pm; key return) It seems working time of the personnel is too important to them (compared with the experience in other hotels in the neighbourhood).View management response »

Booked a corner suite for 2 adults and 2 children. Room was large enough with great view of beach and parts of Busan. Good selection fo breakfast, close to aquarium. Not the cheapest in town, but right on beach makes up for it.View management response »

"What happened to this hotel?"
20th October 2011, Stavanger, Norway
I have been using this hotel several times and it has up to now been my preferred hotel in Busan.Last weekend I booked a suite for one night for my wife and me and was expecting a kind of extra service since I booked this expansive room and also am a platinum card holder for Accor hotels where Novotel also are a member.Checking in was smooth and ok but entering the suite we was a little surprised of the old interior and also signs of long time without any refurbishment.The temperature on our suite was very warm and even setting the AC on lowest temperature it never came under 26 degrees Celsius during our stay.The next morning we went down to the main breakfast restaurant since this have more space and more choices of food than the Club Lounge. We were told we could not eat here, but have to go to the 15th floor to the Club Lounge. We entered the Club Lounge to find a very limited breakfast buffet. There were no choices from the kitchen like omelet etc. The scrambled eggs looks like made from egg powder and was absolutely tasteless. No bacon, no fried egg, only a strange looking soup, the already mentioned scrambled eggs, some light sausages and bits of fat fried potato pieces. The salad was not fresh and a very limited assortment of bread, ham and other items.When returning to the suite after breakfast the quality of the air was so bad that we had to check out immediately.The overall service was ok, but it seems like all staff we met was not happy to perform their duties and a kind of sadness was overwhelming the hotel.We will not return to this hotel again if not a major refurbishment take place and the staff gets treated so they at least look happy to work there.S & M
"Clean but dated."
21st September 2011, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Our stay was pleasant, the rooms were clean but very dated. There was a slight smell of cigarette smoke in the room even though we asked for non-smoking. We were suprised that they did not provide bottled water, as the other hotels did.View management response »

"Excellent view, good service, clean... a bit pricy though"
3rd July 2011, Seoul
Had a studio suite with an absolutely gorgeous view of Haeundae beach. Rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The furniture in the room was a little clunky and a bit outdated, but didn't take away much from the comfort of the room. Only issue was that it was not worth the VIP price I paid for and the complementary breakfast left something to be desired.
"Good emplacement, noisy hotel"

Very well located in front of the beach. Do ask to have a room facing the beach, the one on the street are very noisy.View management response »
