We loved its proximity to the beach and restaurants and appreciated that we could store our luggage while we were at the beach after check-out. The high-floor king sea view room was large and I think all sea view rooms must have an amazing view. The bathroom and products were also nice. It was a little pricey already excluding breakfast, and the price for breakfast high. Our room was a "smoking" room that fortunately didn't smell of smoke - I was told they were all smoking, but the floors said "no smoking" so not sure. There was an ashtray in the room. When I told the staff I'm allergic to smoke after accidentally booking a "smoking" room, I was told they had noted it - so perhaps they took care.
Location, Minimal, Simple No bar/room service nor any mentions regarding its absence
Good location and friendly staff. Parking is free for guests. I was disappointed and disgusted to see stains of discharges on the toilet bowl from the previous guests. I cleaned them up myself. Obviously, cleaning wasn't done thoroughly.
The hotel staff were poor in English. There was one night a certain VIP was holding a birthday party in the hotel room, bunch of people outside, girls screaming until 11 p.m. and the hotel told me they could not do anything to stop them!
The room was very nice, especially the living room/kitchen area The bed was very hard and the shower leaked
The location was close to the beach and close to cheap eats. This is not a four star hotel. I felt like a bait and switch situation. It is a two and half star extended stay condo. The beds are extra firm-felt like I was sleeping on box springs. The facility charges you for extra towels. The staff is very well rehearsed at saying no. Worst hotel of our trip. We had a red ring of mildew in our toilet. Elevators took too long in the morning.
close to markets ..... and restaurants
It's in a good location but a bit minimalist. The staff did try to accommodate us a bit when we complained the rooms smelled of smoke. Would have been comfortable if the non-smoking room didn't smell. We asked to change rooms and the second one was better, but not oder free.
the great and beautiful beach closed to the hotel! one lift was out of order...
I liked the view from my room. The setting of the hotel is amazing. It would be nice to have hot water and cups for coffee in your room. It would also be nice if they serve something else than whiskey by the bottle and really expensive beer in the sky lounge.
Nice and clean room, near the beach. It is easy to go to main city by bus.
The rooms were very spacious and clean. The location is too far from town.
The location of this hotel is excellent and the room was comfortable and clean. I was lead to believe that there were computers with internet inside the rooms, however there is just one computer available for use in the lobby. I also thought the restaurant menu was bland and overpriced.
The hotel staff are friendly. The room is well-decorated with brand new LCD TV and comfortable bathroom. The hotel faces directly the sea, although the location is not the best in Busan. The staff have limited English ability, which is not convenient.
Value for money location
The location is very good and just walking few minutes arrive the wonderful beach anytime. And there have shopping mall in the building, very convenient.
The hotel is nice. The staffe members were really nice and welcoming. The hotel seemed a little expensive for what we got. As I have been in Korea for a long time, I am accustomed to huge flat screen tvs and even desktop computers in most hotels/motels, so I was surprised to see none of these at the Riviera. Overall, I can't complain too much, but the price did seem a little steep for what the room offered, but I guess it's all about location; as it's only a quick 5 minute walk to the beach.
The rooms are clean and well appointed. It is value for money. The facilities are a little bit run down. For example the aircond does not seem to work. Breakfast should be included in the room charges as the common practice in most hotels.
The location of the Riviera hotel was great. The room was pretty nice.
