I travelled with a friend around Korea on a budget trip and this was easily the best place we stayed over the fortnight. Our Korean friend managed to haggle the price down for a double room down to 40,000 won for a night. I don't know how much they were charging originally but since we rang them up on the day of our arrival, they were accommodating at short notice.

It should be noted that the owners do not speak any English but are kind; they made a great effort to understand my poor conversational charades! After a very stilted conversation and a considerable amount of miming, they also let us leave our bags behind reception on the day we checked out.

As others have said before me, this place is very much a love motel: the location off a busy street, the neon signs and LED board, the calling cards left outside every night and the enlightening selection of films one can peruse at reception whilst you check in... however, it didn't feel seedy and we were not disturbed...

South Korea is a highly civilized country and charges for it at every step. For the frugal traveler, so-called "love" motels are an excellent option. This is the case here. Aroma Motel
is located smack in the heart of Busan perched up near the LOTTE store and offers IMHO
a fantastic value for your KRW. We actually stayed here almost 3 weeks, paying only a daily rate of 40,000 or 35 usd, which is half or a third of a comparable "regular" hotel.

we had a large , new room, large bed, small couch, table, FAST cable internet,
coffee/tea water dispense, fridge, phone and jacuzzi, 24 hr massive hot water,
big towels and free water and juice and espresso machine in lobby, I mean, THIS
is what I call a bargain. Hostel in Seoul would charge twice as much for nothing.

Don;t be mislead by the "love" motel tag. There are not hookers populating the place,
on the contrary, it's the occasional middle class Korean couple, young...
