Nice Budget Hotel
Posted Oct 16, 2016
IBIS Busan is a descent budget hotel.
It is good if you are looking purely for the value and not concern with the location, service, or amenities. My experience at IBIS has been mixed.
Getting to Hotel from Metro:
First off, when taking the metro from Busan Airport to the Hotel finding the hotel has been confusing. You are suppose to Exit 9 from Bujion station however there is no signs where this Exit is located. We found it by chance walking around the underground mall but we found it by accident. Also, there is no direct Elevator to Exit 9. We had to lift our luggage up a long set of stairs which was tiring. There is another Exit (Exit 1) you can use however you will need to cross the street however there is no direct cross walk so you need to jaywalk across avoiding incoming cars.
Upon entering the hotel, their are 2 layers of doors. The first you have to manually open yourself with your luggage. The 2nd layer of doors automatically opens so you don't have to open it yourself. Once you enter, there is a door man but he doesn't really do anything other than bow, sometimes he just ignores you and does nothing. The lobby check-in were very nice and helpful.
The A/C Condition was not working so it was hot the whole team in our room. The 2nd night we had to call front desk to have repair man fix. Also, one of the bathroom light lamp did not work so it was kind of dark. Also, again had to had repair man fix.
