I was a bit worried about staying at this hotel after reading reviews online - but it really wasn't bad. Yes it is very outdated, but the rooms were clean and large, the beds comfortable and the staff were friendly. Yes there was a can of insect repellent on the table - but I suspect it was for whacking the occasional mosquito if anything...
The top feature of this hotel is it's location - right in the bustling heart of Busan (as far as I'm concerned) - Jagalchi. Less than 10 minutes stroll to the facinating fish market in one direction, and less than 2 minutes walk to a vibrant shopping, eating and drinking district in the other direction. The subway line is only a few minutes away as well, and the station is only 3 stops from Busan station (where KTX trains from Seoul arrive). Really, I've stayed in other hotels in this city and none of their flash rooms and facilities could match the location of the Phoenix hotel.
I could easily pick up a high-speed wireless internet connection in my room, and there were a few English channels on the TV. I would say that other than it's age, the only thing letting down this hotel is that it's probably still a bit overpriced - but probably a better deal could be negotiated outside peak season.
