Hotel Foret
Ranked #50 of 154 Hotels in Busan
Reviewed 18 June 2014

The hotel is located at an excellent location; within walking distance to Haeundae Beach, Busan Aquarium as well as to Haeundae Market and the main street. So there are plenty of dining options, be it street food, restuarants, cafes etc. Also, there are 24hrs convenience stores just round the corner so if you need to grab a quick bite or get emergency supplies, it's no problem at all.

It is slightly further away from the Haeundae Train Station (approx. 10 - 15mins walk). So if you have larger or heavier luggage, you might need to be prepared for the walk. If you intend to take a cab to the hotel, it is advisable to give the hotel a call so that the hotel staff can guide the cab driver there. Most of the drivers do not know exactly where the hotel is and they don't speak English. So it is easier for the staff to direct the cab driver to the hotel in Korean.

The staff speaks and understand English, which is extremely helpful. And they are friendly, responsive and helpful, be it getting a cab for you or room services which you might need.

The room is clean and tidy, and everything is working as what you would expect it too.

The only minor downside is that the variety of its breakfast is pretty limited and it is the same for all days. It will be good if there is some variety day-to-day so that the guests can enjoy different breakfast everyday.

Air conditioning wasn't working in one of our rooms. The hotel is close to the beach and subway stations. There are a lot of food options nearby. Some of the rooms have bathrooms where the entire room is the shower. The whole floor gets wet this way. You can request a different room that does not use this style.

I'm a first timer to Busan. From map, the beach looks rather far which put me in doubt whether to book this hotel. This turn out to be false as the beach is in fact is quite close. Foods are nearby. Staffs are helpful. And on the room, I'm happy with it - no complains.

I really liked this hotel, great location - located near Haeundae beach and walking distance to the subway, which brings you anywhere around Busan. Lots and lots of restaurants around this hotel, so finding food was definitely not a problem. The staff were very friendly, spoke good English, very willing to help us out - be it changing rooms because of a strange smell in the bathroom, to printing out a boarding pass on their computers. Free self-service laundry downstairs. Nice clean room, fast wifi.

Great location, is easy to go everywhere in Busan, the Heaundae beach is just a couple of blocks ahead. I thought it was going to be a noisy place but it was quiet. Clean rooms and very kind employees.

We stayed at the Hotel Foret only for one night and arrived at the hotel early morning. Check in is not until 15:00, which is in my opinion is quite late, but there was no problem us parking our vehicle at the hotel whilst we explored the city.
The car park is located underground, which had plenty of spaces on our arrival and has a lift to reception and the rooms, which is very handy for the luggage.
Reception were helpful and provided us with a map of the city and showing the location of the hotel on the map.

The hotel is located a few minutes’ walk from the beach and town.

The room was very clean and a reasonable size, with a flat screen TV, fridge, air conditioning and an adjoining shower room, which did have a bit of an unpleasant smell when we arrived, which we believed to be the drains, but leaving the small window open in the shower room did resolve this issue.

Bed was comfortable and shower was plenty powerful, with constant hot water.
Breakfast was located at the top floor and had cereal, bread, yogurts and some cooked items, which was ok.

The price for a city hotel for where it is located and the quality of the room I thought was very good value and had all that we needed for our stay, so I would definitely recommend.
