Reviewed 13 December 2013

I stayed here for a week on a business trip. The hotel charges close to $300 a night if you want breakfast included, but doesn't deliver value for even half of this amount. My room was quite spacious but looked very old and tired, decor and carpets were so very '80s with wood panels and dated bathroom. The mattress was a little old and lumpy too, but linens were changed daily which is a plus. Expensive buffet breakfast was nothing to rave about, but helped start the day. Located in Dong district there is nothing around the hotel, but it is close to HHI and HMC if this is where you have to go every day. I was surprised that reception staff was not helpful at all when asked for recommendations or locations.
Next time I will opt for Lotte hotel downtown when in Ulsan.

Perfect location to view Hyundai Heavy ship building yard. Good rooms and really nice buffet restaurant. Hyundai Department store is only 500 yards away!

Buffet has many choices, Asian and Western, with sushi chef on hand and a Coffee machine to make cappuccinos when needed!

I have had to stay in this hotel several times whilst on business. Convenient for HHI Shipyard and offshore yard (20 min bus journey). The hotel is not particularly cheap for either rooms or meals. The decor in the rooms is very tired and in need of renewal. The air conditioning controls on the wall appear to exist solely for decoration, and using the mutifunctional control by the side of the bed does not make the slightest difference. The rooms vary between normal double bedded rooms and double bed & Single bed arrangement for 3 persons, should you get the latter the only way to watch TV is by lying on the bed. You generally have no choice over which type you are offered since the hotel is normally fully occupied. In the normal rooms the lack of a room safe means you have to either carry your valuables with you or entrust them to the front desk. On the plus side the Staff are very helpful and most speak good english.

because is the only hotel closed to HHI, they have no interest in curing anything particularly and the result is a very low quality hotel and offer. No good restaurant, no good the breakfast, rooms are not particularly cured and the staff service is avarage. Contrarily the price is very high, too high for the type of the Hotel and services provided but it is the lonely in the area so you are obliged to stay there.

Best option if visiting HHI if you want to avoid a lengthy commute from the city centre every day. Department store on other side of a small park. Good choice for breakfast and dinner - there's bound to be something you like. Awarded average to fitness centre and spa (I didn't visit either if they even exist)

Right opposite to HHI.Stayed here on business. Not many options around. Access to Hyundai Department Store across the street.Didn't have time to use any of the facilities. Still worth.
Staff was always helpful.

My third time staying here and it just improves with every visit.

The Hotel now offers free wifi throughout the building; previously this was only available in the lobby - well done Hyundai Hotel.

The rooms are comfortable and, for me, the beds are perfectly sprung.

Food in this hotel is also good and the evening buffet has a fantastic selection of Korean dishes with an amazing selection of fish. Get here early though; I have eaten twice here from 19:30 onwards and the hot food, although still good, is only slightly warm.

The staff throughout the hotel are warm and friendly and will assist wherever possible.

My only negative comment is that breakfast is extremely expensive. Breakfast is a buffet affair and has a wide selection of food available. If you only want only a cup of coffee you have to pay the full breakfast price. There is a separate coffee shop within the hotel but this does open until 8am.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel have a better a view.
