Greg has a few simple criteria:
- The hotel/motel must be near Busan train station
- No more than 40-50,000 Won per night
This should be simple as motel prices are generally much cheaper during the week and motels tend to cluster around stations and bus terminals.
However, sometimes I love hotel365 and sometimes I feel that it's a bit too Seoul-centric for my liking so I may have to get a bit creative with Google Translate and Naver to find some gems. If you can't stay somewhere fabulous on your last night in Korea, then when can you?
First up though, I have my trusty Busan fall-back, The Arirang Hotel. Granted, the photos don't look all that nice and the site is mostly in Korean, I have stayed at this Hotel a few times though and it's clean and comfortable. I also recall them giving me a morning wake-up call which is always welcome when you have to be somewhere.
Yes, the photo's tiny and I am cheating a little as it's not a Love Motel, but sometimes, when you've a plane to catch you just need reliability and you can't get much more certain that the Airirang.
Simply exit Busan Station and look to your left and you will see this sight:
This is the Arirang Hotel, it doesn't say so in English but you will see
You can also contact Hotel Fashion on 051-463-6171~2, though whether they'll speak English is another story.
I have checked on Google and there are at least twenty love motels clustered around Busan Station so you should be covered for all contingencies, whatever they may be.
I hope you enjoy whichever you end up staying in; keep in touch and let me know how it all went!
