New hotel with big room and good location for food”

Its a very new hotel, furnishings are modern and classy. Staff speaks good english and are very friendly and helpful. The room is very spacious, with a separate settee area, and also a big bathroom with tub and the toilet cubicle sectioned off. The room offers free mini bar with drinks and snacks! The location is right on the beach, and surrounded by cafes and eateries. There's a fish town just 10min walk away where you can choose your seafood fresh from tanks and have it cooked immediately in the restaurants upstairs. Head to the beach right at the doorstep of the hotel for a leisurely stroll, and enjoy the night view of Gwangalli bridge which is lit up. Only down side is it's pretty far from the subway station, easily 20min walk, so is advisable to go there in a cab if you have heavy luggage and are not familiar with the area yet. Will definitely stay here again if i return to Busan.

Great stay with great city and ocean view”

Located near the beach, 10 mins walk way to the subway station. The staff is nice, upgraded the room for me. You can see the whole beach from the huge window every floor, and you can go to the Sky Deck to get the excellent view of 광안. Hotel KENT is your best choice to stay in Busan, especially stay with the sea.

Great hotel with great view”

The view from the hotel and lobby is magnificent. It has best view of gwangan beach. The room is spacious, clean, bed is comfortable, big. Free mini bar items. There are cafes , bars and restaurant or convenient shop surrounding the hotel. The only downside is it is about 10 minutes walk from subway. During cold or windy weather is it really tiring. I'm staying at 14th floor , there are 2 great massages chair with the beach view that we can use for free !! This is really superb!

First time traveling to South Korea.... ”

I found the hotel staff very pleasant and helpful. They were able to communicate in English and were gracious with my attempts at using Korean. They were very efficient in securing taxis for me and the gentleman downstairs was very good at handling the traffic and getting myself and bags in and out of the many ones I had to use during my stay. The hotel is extremely quiet and clean, very well appointed on the beach front. The air conditioner, being a Canadian ran at a nice 18 c. Lots of fluffy towels and bathrobes, etc in the bathroom. Plenty of hot water and water pressure. The only negative....is that I couldn’t stay longer. I would certainly stay here again when I return to Busan in the future.

Very good”

I stayed in ocean view room. It is wonderful being able to see Gwangan Bridge at night and during sunrise cosily on the sofa. The toilet is super huge and clean but the trade off is a smaller bed area. Mat on the floor has little dirt yet never a major problem. Light above the room door is motion-sensitive a bit annoying. There are many coffee shops and restaurants along the beach road and they close late. But this area may not be a good option if looking for breakfast as most of them are open from noon. Staff are friendly and patient answering your questions in English even not fully fluent. I went up to the rooftop and night view from there is amazing. The "igloo" seats look good for socialising if the bar is open. If coming to and from Gimhae airport, the limousine bus is recommended. It took me less than 30 minutes from Gwangan Station (exit 4) to the international terminal. Taking the metro would have needed approximately an hour.

The hotel has great sea view which totally overwhelmed us. Room was very clean and comfortable as well.. Definitely a good choice if you are looking for a beachfront hotel. The check in staff is not so friendly though. Perhaps it was only that one staff. The rest of the staff seemed friendly though.
