We stayed a couple of days for our stop-over in Busan. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were decent and properly cleaned, albeit a little outdated. Location of the hotel is quite practical, as it is close to both the beautiful Haeundae beach, and a metrostop so you can get anywere in this vast city quite easily.

I stayed here for a night right after New Years. I was able to make a reservation online easily two days before and book a room for about $65 US. The receipt I got for my booking was different and I had to call to make sure the room was booked, but they were nice about confirming it. Once I... More

I think this is my first poor review ever so my standards aren't that high! But the riviera was not my idea of a nice place to stay. Good location as many have noted but it was old. It felt old, looked old and was old. The location was close to the beach, convenience stores, eating places in Haeundae and... More

This hotel is excellently located near Haeundae Beach - less than 5 minutes walk. Interestingly, its above a shopping mall and the hotel check-in/concierge desk is on the 9/F and all hotel rooms can be accessed from the ground floor (not good from a security standpoint as random strangers can take the elevator straight your hotel floor). As my review... More

The Riviera is a nice hotel in a great location. It seemed a little over-priced for your standard hard, Asian bed though it did have a balcony and the room was quite spacious. Fortunately, the balcony had screen doors so that we could leave them open all night since the air con was not working properly. We slept through 3... More

The hotel is located between Haeundae beach & subway station. It's within 5-minutes walk to either destination. There are restaurants, pubs, convenient stores & fast food outlets nearby the hotel and the supermarket is at basement of the hotel's building. However, the room furnishing is old & tired-looking. The interior setup looks like 80s design and furniture. The chairs' cushion... More

“Stay a few floors above the King's Club on the 8th floor. That floor is the hotel's club/disco and it can be noisy. I stayed on the 14/F and it was perfectly quiet.”
  • Access to the balcony through a sliding door in the room - a rarity in this day & age
