TravelPod Member ReviewsHaeundae Centum Hotel Busan
Don't expect a beach hotel when you see "Haeundae" in the name. This is instead right smack in the center of Centum City, a newer development in Busan where you'll find the world's largest department store, the BEXCO convention center, the BIFF film center and the soon-to-be-built mega television headquarters for KNN. It's an extremely convenient location for shopping and sightseeing since you're steps away from everything including the metro. The hotel is smack in the middle, 3 subway stops either way, between 2 of Busan's most popular beaches - Haeundae and Gwangali. There is a free shuttle bus in the summertime going to Haeundae Beach. We were lucky enough to have a Garden Suite which was perfect for our long stay because it has 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen, a washing machine and a garden terrace. Very tastefully decorated and service has always been good with staff trying very hard to communicate in English. Breakfast buffet is pretty good and there are lots of other dining options in the building as well including a couple of coffee shops, 3 bar/lounges and even a GS25 variety store. The Korean Spa in the basement is pretty nice with 4 pools and 2 saunas. Only drawback is no wi-fi in the rooms, only in the lobby.

... It cost just 13,000 KRW (13 AUD) to enter, and upon entry you are issued with a bracelet that holds your locker key and collects any additional charges you incur. There is a locker for your shoes right at the entry way, then another larger locker for your other stuff in the main change room. The idea is basically that you strip down to your birthday suit and then go clean yourself with either your products or the ones ...

... you are in a suburb with the best 2 km long beach in South Korea. Here you also have the large hotel chains and here you find the majority of the western tourists and ex-pats. The beach is the only place where the westerners are in the majority! We finish the day with a great meal of shellfish (didn’t count the amount of different kinds and sizes), a whole octopus and a whole crab. We would have loved to stay another day but we have to move on the next town. But more of that in our next blog. ...
... was wearing the goofiest shark socks I had ever seen! Still though, my bad Buddha!
One hundred and eight bows later and we were ready to go to bed, at 9pm. I actually got a phone call from my mate Pete around this time asking where I was because there was a big party going on at his gaff, 'sorry, just on my way to bed actually. I’m getting woken up at 3am; I’m scheduled to do another fifty four bows in the morning’. Boys and girls were ...
... and point, or sit down in a restaurant and have the staff choose for us; if someone serves us something completely incomprehensible (is it cake or fish?), we'll simply chow down and discover it.
The bus gets us around easily. It's a great system - you pay a flat rate for the right of being on the bus, rather than per-stop. This means you don't even need to interact with the driver, you just hop on (litterally, as they don't ...
