    The hotel has a quaint character - wooden floors whim has I love, no dusty carpet - clean marble bathroom and most of all a beautiful view to wake up to and go to bed with. Very close to the bush path and beach - perfect for walking. It has a nice Asian/Thai restaurant and a bakery and bar place too! Cant ask for more.

    My room changed without giving full information”

    I have made a reservation for a deluxe ocean view room double size bed. But when I arrived at the hotel, they asked me if I want to change with 2 single beds room. We said yeah sure. After getting into the room we used the toilet because we came all the way from Seoul. Then I realized in the room there were no ocean view, It was just looking to back street. How come it is possible they change my room with a lower-class room? It is unbelievable, I really felt I am scammed. Then I went down the lobby to ask if they were serious or it was a mistake. They said they offered and I accepted it. When I said it is impossible that you change the deluxe ocean view room that I reserved into the back street view room, they came and check the room but just because we had used to the toilet, they refused to change back to the ocean view room. If there is no ocean view, I would not choose the illlua.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    For weekend travelers it's a sweet location, for business travelers you should definitely check the location first as it can be quite far from the business area. Rooms are clean, nice with great view over the beach. Friendly staff, breakfast was so so. In totally satisfying
