Good points are the great breakfast and the thermal spa. We shared a room with my friend and it had everything needed, even a bathtub which is rare in South Korea. I think the decorations in the bedroom could be better. Thank you for the stay, recommended!
Hotel Nongshim was a pleasant surprise for me. From its sheer size to its facilities, I don't have much to critique on. The front desk was really helpful and kind. I took an elevator up to my room and was pleased by the size of the room and the fully stocked fridge. The bed was so comfortable and the TV was big with many channels. The bathroom was also spacious and I really enjoyed taking a bath in the comfy tub. All expected amenities were available and the hotel was also close to restaurants and bars, if you're looking for a drink. I wasn't able to visit the spa - which I regret as I'd heard great things about it.
This hotel was such a beautiful stay. The experience from the luxurious lobby, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, and healing spa; was 10 out of 10. I stayed in a twin double room, which was very spacious for two people. The view from the hotel window wasn't amazing, but the spa and amenities made up for it. I loved how there was a bathtub that I could soak in after a long day inside the room. The room came with tea, water, coffee, bathrobes, and slippers. The spa in this hotel is one of the most famous spas in Busan, so it's a must to check out if you stay in this hotel. The hotel is very close to many restaurants and pochas, so if you're looking for nightlife or food, there are many options.
Definite value for money. This hotel is directly connected to an awesome spa: free tickets to the spa for hotel guests. Spacious room with table and chair. Plenty of room for clothes, with hangers and drawers. Bathrobes and full toiletries supplied. The bed was exceptionally soft & luxuriously comfortable. There is a bath as well as shower; heated toilet seat, toilet/bidet combination. Great lighting in the room. Great view from window. Excellent WiFi; accessible power points, easy-to-use safe in the room. Complimentary water daily; coffee awesome.
not sure why this hotel is rated 5-star. their big hot springs spa must be the answer perhaps? you get two free tickets to spa. they charge for infants older than 12 months however. jjimjilbang is also extra charge. they charge for the usual amenities you get for free at other hotels. if you ask for extra water you will be billed when you check out; don't be surprised. their std and deluxe rooms are rather too small to recommend for family travelers and all are on low floors (3rd?). windows are small like the ones at motels. considering its two decades old presence, not much seems to have been renovated; only the lobby appears to have been. there are handful of eel places around which this area is known for. small old-fashioned markets within 3 min walking distance. it's an okay place to stay if you are here for hot springs but only on the weekdays. their weekend rates do not justify. …
We had a very comfortable room. Everything we needed was available, even a European plug on the desk! Continental and Korean style breakfast; as we stayed for a week, some variety would have been appreciated. Very polite staff but with surprisingly limited English. Generally in Busan we came across very few people speaking enough English to communicate even at a basic level. However, the politeness and helpfulness of every one made up for the difficulty in verbal communication.
If you are used to your own temperature control like most of hotels, avoid this hotel. We planned to stay there for a week to visit with the family. The hotel looked ok and some things were actually nice such as bath robe. But the room was too small for our family of 3 and worst of all the temperature of the room was too hot. We walked in the room for 25.5 Celsius degree which is almost 78 degree. My husband and I tried to lower the temperature with no success. Later I learned that the hotel has central controlled push air system set at 25-26 and no air conditioning is available. We were too tired after such a long trip that we tried to sleep but it was still hard with such hot temp. Front desk team was not much helpful to make any changes for us and we ended up leaving after 1 night stay. When I asked if anyone complains of the temperature, a gentleman said most of foreigners do not like it but Koreans like it as it’s warm. I like warm weather but it’s wrong. Wasted a night of good night sleep. Besides their bidet didn’t work and there were lots of stains on the carpet. I would not recommend this place at all. Not worth the money. …
This hotel is located in a complex area of city but is very fraught with many choices of dining, night life, etc.....including karaoke of course too. many good ubs, restaurants, bistros, including the one at this hotel - a German style beer garden - fantastic ! I highly recommend.
Spent 4 nights here. Enjoyed the room and the location. Easy walk to metro station. Breakfast was good each morning. If you are a fan of Pokemon, there are nine Pokestops and one gym all in the courtyard area of the hotel. There is also agood Korean restaurant across the courtyard.
I stayed there while on a business trip in Busan. Location wise, its app. 30 min to the train station and app. 40 min to the airport. Nice hotel lobby, efficient check in/out, nicely furnished hotel rooms, FOC wifi. Unfortunately we had not enough time to check out the spa. Breakfast area with buffet breakfast was OK but I expected a bit larger selection. All in all it was a nice and comfortable stay at this hotel. Reasonable priced for the services offered and recommendable
