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.

... When I reached the station I needed I could finally see how Busan, or at least the part around my next place, looked like. And it was lively, a lot of people and a lot of shops. Very, very different from the countryside. I look forward to explore the surroundings :)
The cafe/hostel where I stay and work is close to the subwaystation.
I was so tired when I finally arrived but the place looked nice and I looked forward to start working. ...
... ll get onto the three hundred or so bows we were encourage to do at a later point, but for now the s******ing. So we were informed we could stand up after two hours of sitting crossed legged and I muttered something under my breathe, can’t remember exactly what but I was voicing my satisfaction about being able to finally stand up. I’m not patient, I’m quite the fidget when uncomfortable and I was relieved. My relief sent Amy into s****** paradise and ...
... prescribed lines - in week one, everything was insane and now in week... 4? ..5? things are begining to be 'the norm'. Maybe I'm begining to think there's no reason that sausages shouldn't be lime green; guys my age always went out in checkered bow-ties and shorts; or maybe grapes have always had the consistency of bubble-gum.
So, the last week or two:

... reading this in. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before I play cards on a Thursday, so why edit tradition? However there was a unique birthday twist this week, my dear friend Ben made Dragon cards. It’s a really good game that I may bring back to the UK with me; you pick up a card and do exactly as the card tells you such as ‘dance for Dragon’ or ‘down your drink for Dragon’, while I just gleeful watch people try their best to please me. Great birthday ...
