Elysee Motel Busan Review

For a first time visitor, the place might look sleazy or haunted. The place is quite dimly lit and it looks really shady. You might also find it tricky to locate the entrance as you enter via the carpark.

The owners sent us a prior email before arriving to give us directions to the motel. Upon arriving, they gave us an introduction of shopping, food and sightseeing locations around the area coupled with print-outs of the maps and descriptions.

Although the place looks rather old and worn out, the couple running the place were extremely helpful and friendly, giving a warm homely feel to the place. They readily helped us with any information we needed and also helped searched for the information if they didn't know the answer to it. There was a jacuzzi, shower area, computer and a huge flat screen tv in the room.

The location was quite good as you could walk to get to the shopping and food areas that are nearby.

Apart from the looks of this place, I would actually give them a double thumbs up for their impeccable service and value-for-money.

Update 27 May 2015:
From their photos, I think they had some renovations and they look significantly better now, especially the rooms. Triple thumbs up now!
