“Hotel next to the beach”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 via mobile

I staid at the Seacloud hotel for two nights during the Busan Artshow. The location is good if you need to go to the Bexco or if you want to be close to the beach. There are also lots of restaurant and bars in the area.
Regarding the hotel itself, the room was average, big but with no charm and with a strange design - bathroom was a sort of cabin in the middle of the room. Service was also not that great - I arrived in the middle of the afternoon but had to wait 15 minutes to get my room. Would recommend this hotel only if there is no other option.

Stayed June 2013, travelled with friends

The hotel is located across the street from the beach, with numerous restaurants nearby.

Large rooms with modern furnishings, great views of the beach. There was a stove and refrigerator in a separate kitchen area. The beds were comfortable.

The bathroom is really strange. It has an electric toilet seat with built in bidet, but the shower/bath tub is bizarre, it has a bathtub in the middle of the shower stall. If you have mobility problems it is extremely dangerous as there are no grab rails, the shower/bath tub is very uncomfortable to stand in, but the shower head and pressure was really good.

There is a computer in the room, but it did not seem to have access to the internet. Large flat screen TV with a few English language channels.

The buffet breakfast is ok.

Room Tip: If you have a choice, get a room without a bath tub in the shower stall!

If you get a good discount then this hotel should be fine, but you don't want to pay top dollars for it. Its location is great, it is near the beach so most rooms would have the sea view. There are shops, eateries, and a local market close by with interesting street food e.g. bbq eels, fish fresh totally from the tanks. In fact, it was quite a sight watching eels getting skinned then grilled while still moving! The hotel has good size rooms, korean standard hand-free toilet :), king size comfortable bed and pillows. Our room though has a shower but does not have a bath.

Room Tip: Heating is controlled centrally so in winter it may be too hot. Open the window in that case, but th...

We stayed for 2 nights and everything met our expectations.
The room was excellent (L22) and the staff were helpful.
The location was perfect for a short break.
The 'contracted-out' buffet breakfast was adequate.
We enjoyed the gym.
Please note, our trip was organised by an operator so we do not know the room rate and cannot comment on value.

Room Tip: The higher the levels have a better aspect

first the good points: good huge (!) rooms, i got one with a kitchenette, and washing machine. The bathroom was a cubicle in the room. The room was considerably bigger than what i had been staying in, so was pretty impressed by this. The hotel is just across the beach and overlooks a street full of restaurants and bars on one side, and shopping shops on the other. Good clean rooms with comfortable beds. Breakfast is in the VIPS restaurant on the 2nd floor, but the access is from the outside. And this is where the issue is. The lobby for us, was to access the 4th floor and then change elevators to go to the lobby on the 6th floor, and then catch the same elevator to go to your rooms. for breakfast, one had to come to the ground floor and then take the escalator to go the restaurant! Sort of confusing and takes some getting used to, but worth it for the rooms.

Wifi was free, and each room had a router which had the user name and password written on it, duly typed. the instructions for the airconditioning and TV remotes were vague, and one had to guess what buttons to press, but support from housekeeping was immediate when called to ask.

there are two PCs in the lobby on the 6th and 4th floor which one can access for internet too.
breakfast was Korean, with limited choices for non Asians, (ok, you would get choice of 2 fruits, bread rolls, and scrambled eggs, tea/coffee/2 juices, to be fair and accurate) so would be adequate for most people.

Would stay here again,

I spent 2 weeks staying at the Seacloud Hotel while in Busan for business. This hotel is in a fantastic location right across the street from Haeundae Beach, and the Busan Aquarium, a 5 minute taxi ride from Shinsegae Department Store, and is surrounded by lots of good restaurants and bars.

The front desk service was polite and efficient, and had power adaptors available for use. The rooms are large and well equipped, but the layout is rather poor. The bathrooms are in a sort of "cube" in the middle of the room, and if you were to turn on the light in the middle of the night, you would wake up everyone else in the room. Heating and cooling the rooms can be a bit tricky for a Westerner to figure out, but once you get the hang of it, the room can certainly be kept at a comfortable temperature. My room was equipped with a small kitchenette, and had a complimentary bottle of water every day. The beds are quite firm, and only have a fitted sheet, comforter and duvet cover...no flat sheet.

I did have some complaints about the hotel's amenities. My biggest complaint was that there was no wifi available in the rooms. Use of the internet on the computer in the room was 15,000 won per 24 hour period. My company paid for the internet, but that's a bit ridiculous to pay out of pocket in this day and age; especially when almost everywhere you go in Korea has a free wifi network.

My 2nd complaint about the hotel lies with the breakfast buffet. I am well aware that this is not America, and I should not expect American fare. But the undercooked eggs and bacon on the breakfast buffet aren't just an idle complaint, that's a health hazard. Also as a warning to Westerners...don't expect to find good coffee here unless you go to a coffee shop. Instant coffee is much more popular in this part of the world.

And finally, the hotel gym. I have traveled all over the world, and have almost never found a good complimentary hotel gym. This hotel actually did have some good equipment in the gym, but the location was in a sort of atrium for the top 10 floors. So basically anyone staying in those top 10 floors could come out into the hallways and observe you working out. The lack of privacy was rather unnerving.

All in all, the Seacloud hotel is great for its location and price, but always remember that you get what you pay for where hotels are concerned.

Room Tip: Make sure you get one with a sea view!
