Architecturally designed by George Frew and featuring 320 elegant rooms, this hotel is inspired by traditional Korean architecture that reflects the Palace of Joseon Dynasty. The Commodore Hotel is 17km from the Gimhae International Airport and a five-minute walk from Busan Station and the ferry terminal. The hotel is surrounded by a number of great attractions such as Taejongdae, Yongdu-San Park, Gukje Market, Daecheong Park, International Market, and Jagalchi Fish Market. Resembling a folk museum, the 5-star hotel is decorated with traditional pictures and engravings with a lotus ceiling and dragon-shaped handrail. The opulent design of the hotel has made it a popular international tourist destination for over 20 years.

Enjoyed a lot the Korean traditional atmosphere hotel”
I brought my Japanese parents and families here, and they loved the atmosphere of whole hotel. The hotel has amazingly well maintained Korean traditional atmosphere even it is in the middle of the big city. And also the room was clean and convenient as modern hotel. The hotel is located 15 min far on foot from Gukje Market area but it is not that hard to take a taxi to there so we didn't feel so inconvenience about location. But the hotel is located on the hill side, if you have big luggage, I recommend you to take a taxi to hotel. Not that far from Busan station.
Good Hotel as a 5-stars !”
Staff is friendly and fine. The location is a little bit far from neighbooring station but it is not impossible to walk to the hotel. Non-smoking room feels like smoking room because it was smoking room before. So I had a little bit trouble in my breath. It can not be helped because of very old hotel. Anyway,it was reasonable 5-stars good hotel ,I think...
Located near shopping district ”
i have stayed with this hotel twice before therefore booking it the 3rd time was normal as it is worth the money. located near a shopping district and some 7 minute walk to the nearest train station everything was easily accessible. not to mention clean rooms and the great service provided, will definitely return when i go back to busan again.
Close to shopping”
We had an acceptable stay in the hotel. We booked a semi suite room, which was smaller than expected for our family of 5 people. Hotel has only double beds available. Room rate does not include breakfast, but there's a few local restaurants just outside the hotel street. Hotel is on a hill. Walking to the famous Gukje(kukje) market will take about 15-20 minutes down hill. Taxi took much faster about less than 10 minutes. For those who likes to explore, the Jagalchi seafood market and Gupyeong night markets are also within walking distance of the same vacinity as Gukje market. Songdo Beach is about 30 minutes by taxi. And 20 minutes walk from the beach upwards will bring you to the Songdo walking trail (or the Busan Geo park). A good coastal view from the top. We prefer Haeundae beach btter, but overall we really enjoyed out stay in Busan!
Warm and cozy with an ancient feel”
Commodore hotel is widely known by the taxi drivers and is situated about 10 minutes walk from Busan train station. The rooms are generally clean but the furnishings are a bit old to match the decor. It was quite a comfortable stay. The area is quite hilly but presents a better view from the rooms. It is two stations away from the fish market where you can spend a day going around the market and the local stores which offers pretty much anything you need.
Historical look and feel hotel, great experience”
The hotel retains many of the ancient elements on the exterior and interior lobby. It is very big and spacious to sit around the lobby and enjoy the fast Wifi services on offer. No Wifi in the rooms. Rooms are large but the interior is a bit outdated to retain the historical ancient aspects. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Busan train station and the hotel sits on the high side of the hill. It is easy to get around to other areas of Busan once you reach the train station.
Nice hotel, but poor cost-value-ratio.”
The hotel has a very special architecture and its worth to visit. We had a nice quiet spacious room in the 14th floor with a comfortable bed and a nice view over the city centre. Unfortunately, there was no WiFi in the room, only in the Lobby. No breakfast was included. The staff could hardly speak english. In general the prices for breakfast and menues in the restaurants and drinks/coffee at the bar were very high. From the hotel, its easy to get to the city centre (around 15min walk).
Wonderful hotel with a great staff! ”
Our hotel stay was amazing. The staff did a wonderful job of making us feel right at home. They even upgraded our room to fit a crib for our 2 month old. The only thing I would say about the hotel is not to eat at the Admiral restaurant. Our meal was over $200 for 4 people and I can honestly say it was one of the worst meals I have ever had. We were hoping for a great meal especially at that price. The staff did a great job in making it a great experience however, the food I would compare to cafeteria food if not worse.
Average for what is is”
I was actually quite disappointed at the hotel as for what is was meant to be. I ask for help at the check-in counter and they sent me to the concierge who didn't speak English 3 times. I just gave up after that. The room is quite nice. The fitness centre was a joke. A home gym has more than what they had. The internet access was the most expensive I have come across, it was relatively fast but not the fastest and definitely slower than the hotels that offered FREE internet service. If you have good command with the Korean language, it would be alright. If you are not good with buses, not your hotel because the nearest train station is not within walking distance. The exterior looks run down. They really do need to renovate and evaluate their services because I was not overly impressed.
Very comfortable stay! ”
I stayed with my brother here while my parents stayed in another room just opposite us. I only joined my family later but I had the check in was very good, and the hotel staff were very friendly and informative, and getting a taxi was easily available. The design of the hotel was unique, and it was quite close by taxi from the busan station. Pretty easy to get to Gukje Market, Gwangbokro and the major attractions in Jung gu. Our check out was very fuss free and efficient too. Would definitely want to stay here again.
Great. The staff was friendly, attentive, and eager to help. We were on the 15th floor and had an amazing view of the harbor and city. The hotel was super clean and well maintained. A/C worked but only marginally so room was a little warm at night. Could not have asked for a better location. Close to train station (walking distance), museums, harbor, parks, Busan Tower, etc. The Commodore has to be one of the best kept secrets in Busan. Would definitely stay there again. Very good value was an extra bonus.
One of the best hotels I have ever seen.”
Our stay at the Commodore Hotel vas fantastic. We loved the look and the location of the hotel. The staff was very professional, helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. 10/10.
Good location for Busan”
my 4th stay at this hotel and shortest stay due to nature of business trip. wi-fi in lounge and lobby area works well an is free. internet access in business centre on desktop also speedy and free. wired internet in rooms is expensive. lots of new staff but still helpful at all times. omfortable and good size rooms well serviced. in house dining and drinks are a bit pricey. plenty of options to eat out near by which are cheaper and good quality. close to busan station, market and short taxi drive to good upmarket lotte department store.
the hotel staff was very courteous and helpful. close to 부산역 so it was easy to get there by taxi. nearby there are some family restaurants too, and it's not difficult to take a cab to gukje market for shopping. the hotel room decor was quite antique but nice, and the room was kind of small. however it was quite well-equipped. overall it is a good stay!
nice located hotel”
was greeted very well by the personnel, arrived a little early and temporarily parking of my baggage was not a problem, checked in a few hours later after my meeting, very nice furnished room, and special the view over the port was nice, had a room on the top floor
One of the really nice hotels in Busan”
The room smelled a little old and funny, but it was big, and so was the bathroom. We found room service food rather expensive (that's the standard around Korea) but it tasted really nice. Room service is awesome as well, and when we asked for extra pillows, they were given with no extra charge. Wifi is only available in the first floor lobby and the hotel is a bit of a walk to the shopping center.
Good out looking and frindly service. we had a very nice vacation here especially they would try to approach customer special request. Unfortunately the location is a little far from metro. If you take taxi is find but inconvenient for metro
Traditional style hotel”
An older hotel that has definitely seen better days. The location is convenient to the main Busan KTX station, which was my primary reason for booking. Made use of the adequate fitness centre. Noted there was also spa/pool facilities but did not utilise these.
Lovely outside, not so lovely inside”
This hotel disappointed. It looks great on the outside but the rooms are quite a different matter. First of all, despite my request we were given a room on a smoking floor. Either that or other guests on the same floor couldnt be bothered about the no-smoking rule and went ahead and smoked. The whole corrdior was filled with smoke as these incosiderate guests left their room doors open. That aside, the room we had smelt smoky (either from previous smokers or internal circulation from the smokers' rooms) The chairs had fleas or something on it that made you itch and feel like you had been bitten all over. The beds were alright so we had to forget the sitting lounge area and sit on the beds instead. Plus the carpets were gungy and I wouldnt advise you walk on it barefoot. On top of that, despite its upmarket price, this hotel offers no free toiletries unlike many much cheaper hotels. So pay for your toothbrush - if you want one.
