We stayed here because it sounded like a good deal. Actually, it advertised a western bacon'n'egg breakfast, and that's really what caught our attention because we love bacon and eggs, and diner breakfasts are hard to find in Korea.
Although, as described below, the breakfast was quite sub-par, the rest of our stay was...average. The room was sparse and ugly, and didn't actually have an especially professional or hospitable feel. I expect this hotel caters to business travel, thus the name. This might be why it lacks the feel of luxury.
One exceptional quality is the huge bathtub. We spent at least one evening soaking, which was relaxing.

Unique Qualities: Don't be drawn in by the advertised western-style breakfast. By any standards, the breakfast was the weakest part of our stay. It included as many stale and cold scrambled eggs as you would care to eat, bread and toasters, and cereal so old it was chewy instead of crunchy. We couldn't eat any of it. Really disappointing.

Address: Near the Paradise Hotel on Haeundae Beach.
Comparison: less expensive than average
Price: US$40-80
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
