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
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.
close to markets ..... and restaurants
Beautiful view of ocean. Great appointments in room. Nice places to sit and view the ocean. Helpful staff. Be careful. What appears to be a free breakfast is actually charged to the room and is expensive.
Friendly staff and great room service. Room was not as advertised. Ocean view rooms will come with all the noise from fireworks and local musicians throughout the night... Non smoking rooms will smell of cigarette smoke through the vents.
The staff is flawless and friendly. Nothing.
The location on the beach was outstanding. I didn't try the buffet but it looked really good. A Starbucks was right down the beach. Rooms were a little overpriced for the quality. I never did find the squash court that was advertised on the web site.
Executive privilege = free breakfast and drinks in happy hour. Lack of drinking water in rooms, you had to pay for it. Even in the cheapest hotels in the area, this is a natural thing.
gute lage in nahezu strandnähe-hilfsbereites personal-gute ausstattung des zimmers-viele unterhaltungsmöglichkeiten in der nähe-gute anbindung an den öffentlichen nahverkehr teilweise nicht ausreichende engliche sprachfähigkeiten des personals-ist trifft aber auf die allermeisten serviceeinrichtungen in korea zu- z.t. war auch noch spätabends musik aus einer kneipe von gegnüber zu hören
Das Deluxe Zimmer war riesig und modern eingerichtet, mit Entrée, TV-Platz mit Sofa, Schlafzimmer und sehr grossem Badezimmer mit Whirlpool und der in Korea üblichen Duschtoilette. Zwei Waschbecken. Sauber und bequeme Betten. Neben der Aussicht auf die Stadt vom 14. Stock gab es vom Zimmer auch ein wenig Meerblick. Gratis Internet Terminal und Wifi in der Lobby. Im selben Gebäude und in der Strasse befinden sich Restaurants, ein lokaler Lebensmittelmarkt und einige Bars, das Hotel ist in der zweiten Häuserreihe hinter dem Strand. Die Metro ist ca 10 Min zu Fuss, der Strand 1 Min. Preiswert im Vergleich zu anderen Hotels in Busan. Personal spricht kaum verständliches englisch. Es ist ein Business-Hotel, daher keine Hotel-eigenen Einrichtungen/Restaurants, aber das ist aufgrund der Lage kein Problem. Der TV war zwar gross, aber die Programme waren nicht richtig eingestellt. Der Whirlpool hatte einige defekte Düsen.
Wunderbare Lage, downtown Busan und direkt am Meer Die Distanz zum Flughafen Kimhae ist mit 20 Minuten total falsch und irreführend. Die Fahrzeit beträgt wegen dem täglichen Stau mindestens 40 bis sogar 60 Minuten. Weil ich eine gute Verbindung zu Flughafen brauchte, war das Hotel für mich nicht ideal. Ausserdem sprechen die Hotelmitarbeiter extrem schlecht Englisch und haben eine schlechte Auffassungsgabe.
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 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 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.
Value for money location
The location of the Riviera hotel was great. The room was pretty nice.
The design of the hotel building is unique The hotel staff is not very friendly
Nice view!!! Location is not convenient as it's not accessible by public transport for a tourist or business person.
The room was comfortable, and large relative to other Asian hotels I've stayed in. I had an excellent view of the bay and city from my 14th floor window. I appreciated having CNN on the TV. The location was inconvenient for my daily travel to the Bexco convention center (25 minute taxi, 45 minute subway). While the room was clean and comfortable, the furnishings and carpet were dated. The Internet connectivity rate was high. For the 24-hour rate it said I could not disconnect, but I did and it still worked when I returned.
Room and decor is very nice. The windows rattle in the wind.
Nice and clean room, near the beach. It is easy to go to main city by bus.
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.
The rooms were very spacious and clean. The location is too far from town.
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.
