      Great location and excellent rooms.”

      Hotel's location was great with an amazing view of the beach. Only a short walk to centre of town. Rooms are nice, they look new and clean.

      I'm glad I chose to stay at this hotel, the rooms were nice and had a great view overlooking the beach. The price was excellent compared to the other hotels and after seeing them when walking around town I'm glad I stayed in Illua. It is a really nice looking hotel and the cherry blossoms were in bloom in the street outside so it was a nice walk to town each day.

      Very good location, a short walk from central Haeundae; great ocean views; immaculate.

      The staff were very helpful and charming. I spent five days/nights at the Illua and it was extremely comfortable and in a lovely area for walking. There is an excellent bakery/cafe on one level and the hotel provides an array of breakfasts at an additional charge. I was driven in the hotel courtesy car to my next hotel when I was leaving. I would definitely stay at the Illua again.

      Very nice hotel with fantastic view. The rooms are clean and the beddings are very comfortable. The hotel room is huge and spacious ! It overlooks haeundae beach which is priceless! There is a city tour bus stop nearby where you can purchase using 15,000w and travel around Busan very conveniently. Do ask the front desk if you ever live in this hotel.

      Beautiful Seaside View Of Busan!”

      Affordable stay with one of the best ocean views of the beach & bridge!

      Loved our room with the seaside view of Busan. Modern hotel situated on a hillside with average size room, affordable for its price & location. Would defiantly stay here again. Our fridge had stopped working one day while we were out & the staff were helpful enough to send a handy-man to fix it right away. Staff were also nice enough to offer a 1pm check-out time, & also for us to leave our luggage with reception for a few hours after check-out while we had lunch outside the hotel. Note: Only ONE of the bottled waters are complementary, but there is two more bottle of the exact same budget waters right next to the free one. We didn't know about this & it was not clearly labelled that we would be charged (Most in Korea don't charge). Although not very expensive for the extra bottled waters, it would have been nice to know that for a hotel of this standard, all cheap bottled water should be complementary (excl. mineral/sparkling etc).

      it was great overall. we checked in quite late at about 8 or 9 pm on the day. the receptions were quite kind. the room size small but not uncomfortable. great views through the large windows. you could see the haeundae ocean right at the front. everything else was fine except the bathroom condition. it was quite smelly and small. and the shower cultain was really old and it didnt look good.

      Nice hotel up on the hill.”

      Beatiful view from the room, away from the main touist places of Haeundae but within walking distance to everything.

      Nice clean hotel. The staff was friendly and check-in/out was smooth and easy. The view of the beach from our room was spectacular! The breakfast is rather pricey, so we didn't go for that option. Instead we just bought some cereal and fruit from the market. The room had a pretty strong smell of smoke when we first arrived, but we left the window open to air it out. It was fine after a night of that. I would recommend requesting a non-smoking room. There is also a shuttle bus to/from the subway station if you don't want to walk.

      You can smoke in the rooms, which is nice if you're a smoker

      Other than that, I'm not sure I will stay there again. The staff spoke enough English to get by, but it took me literally 2 hours of negotiations to get an adapter to use in the Korean power outlets for my laptop. Never experienced that before in Korea. Also, there are some basic toiletries (toothbrush/toothpaste) that I had assumed were complimentary but I got charged for them on the way out the door. It was clean, but not worth the money.
