“In the heart of Busan.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Very good localization, clean, modern, comfortable place. Friendly stuff. They have great fish-spa, nice restaurant, but there are so many nice places around - you can eat - You will never know what to choose :).

Tower Hill Hotel Busan is a good budget hotel in Junggu Area. Very convenient. There are lot of eateries in the area (even the Ajima road side stalls sell good food) and is within walking distance to Gwangbok Road shopping area + Lotte Dept Store. The famous BIFF, Jagalchi Market are nearby though not very near. It is about 15 to 20 minutes walk.

The good points about the hotel:

1. Good location.
2. Very friendly staff. Can speak English though not so fluent.
3. Generally clean and quiet.
4. WiFi works well in the room.
5. Hygiene toilet.

The not-so-good points about the hotel:

1. The room is very small. Do not take their double room. It does not even come with wardrobe. You hang your cloths on the wall hangers. Take their twin room and above will be better.

2. Shower and toilet bowl are together in a small cubicle. There is only a short shower curtain in between. The floor will be wet throughout after your bath.

3. No breakfast.

If you are coming to the hotel by airport limousine bus service, take the Busan Station Line and alight at Coastal Passengers Terminal stop. It is nearer than Jungang Station stop. The hotel signage is quite large. You can it it from afar.

Overall, a good stay there for six nights for me.

Room Tip: Do not take their double room. You cannot survive in it. Take their Twin and above will be better.

The location of the hotel is a station away from Busan station and very near Jalgachi Fish Market, BIFF Square, Busan Tower, shopping district.

The WiFi is non existent and i had to make use of their WiFi in the lobby and not in the comfort of my own room.

When i made my booking on hotel.com, i chose the One Double Bed option which stated that private bathroom has a separate bathtub and shower. I had a room with a tiny shower, no bathtub, and it stink of urine. I would not stay at tower hill nor recommend anyone.

I stayed couple of nights last week at this hotel and was extremely amazed by the location of the hotel. Its about 4 kilometers, if that from the Busan Station and maybe 1/2 km from Jungju station. Walking distance (less than 5-10 minutes) to the Jagalchi Market, BIFF Area and so called Rodeo Drive, night clubs, street food and shopping in busan. The hotel room is very clean, a/c works and not that big. Its not a five star hotel, but more like a 3 star but very very clean. The front staff is excellent, the Manager Mr. Lee does speak good english and staff can converse. I forgot my iphone in the room and realized it while I was in seoul. Mr. Lee was very efficient and overnighted me the phone. I am extremely thankful to Tower Hill Staff and Mr. Lee for there honesty and their Customer Service to ensure that I got my phone back. If I do happen or get a chance to visit busan again. I will stay at this hotel.

We stayed three nights with a friend. The hotel is ideally located nearby metro stop, shops, restaurants, cafeterias, western style pubs and banks (I recommend Shinhan bank ATM for Visa owners). The room was spacey and had safety box and working air conditioning. Kettle with tea and coffee was also provided. We had a view into street.

Everything worked without problems, including money exchange service and cleaning. I would definitely come back to this hotel as Korean hotels are usually not this good and low priced!

Room Tip: As high as possible, rather with a view.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

I stayed for 3 nights with my friends and parents.
The room was quite small but enough for travellers who are just looking for a place to sleep.
The room was clean, I don't have any complains.
The hotel will have a gym but it was not opened yet when we were there!!

We got off from Jungang Station, walked all the way to exit no.1 (no escalator or elevator) with our luggage. It takes around 3 mins from exit no 1 to the hotel.
Very close to Nampo too, only 5-10 mins walk to the heart of Nampo Dong. We went to Nampo Dong almost every night!! Love the street food there.
Walkable distance to Jacalchi Fish Market, another 5 mins from Nampo Dong.

The hotel is located at a convenient location,just oppoite the coffee chain Tom Tom. You can either take the subway to Nampo station or Jungang station. It is also near to Yongdusan Park, BIFF Square and Lotte departmental store. it may be a bit difficult to locate the hotel once you exit from the subway station, but this can be solve easily by asking passer by. The street where the hotel is located has plenty of japanese restaurants. The room will only provide towel and bath robes, body shampoo and shampoo conditioner. The other such as toothbrush, toothpaste, razor are not provided.My room is on the third floor and you can hear car engine noise at night.
