My favorite aspect of traveling is discovering a hidden gem where I will be staying. It should be both to my likings and conveniently located. In this post, I will give you my honest opinion of the Arban Hotel in Busan. I hope this offers you an idea of where to stay on your next visit!
About Arban Hotel in Busan
Arban Hotel is located in Seomyeon which is the heart of dynamic Busan! Its location is convenient to access all tourist attractions in Busan. Although it seems like a regular hotel from the outside, the lobby and rooms are fancier than it looks like from the outside. It is also convenient because it is close to the metro station, making it easy to transport your luggage. These are the reasons why it also has excellent reviews on booking sites.
If you are not familiar with the neighborhood, Seomyeon is a hot place where all young people are hanging out around. Each side of it has different vibes, from cafes, clubs, and bars to clothing stores, shopping malls, and underground fashion areas. It is also close to Jeonpo, a calmer neighborhood with many beautiful hidden cafes.

My review of Arban Hotel in Busan
We will do our best to make your stay enjoyable and memorableArban Hotel
Indeed, the reception is open 24/7 and the staff is always considerate with us. They were also quick to answer all our inquiries before our stay. I loved the fact that the hotel’s elevator requires a card for you to access the Rooms floor, that’s a plus for me as it made me feel safer especially when coming back late at night. Of course, you can access the lobby desk without a card so don’t worry. They also have a parking lot!
The room I took was the Deluxe Twin room which had a single bed and a double bed. It was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfy, it featured a lot of storage space for your belongings. I loved the view at sunset, I took almost a thousand pictures with this view!
The place offers a water kettle with a selection of coffee and tea that I enjoyed every morning. You can also grab a snack in the lobby. The staff told me that you need to pay by cash as it is a donation that goes to UNICEF:
My favorite part: the bathroom. The bathtub made it look fancy. If you live in Korea, you know that a bathtub is a luxury! This room also had a shower and toiletries supplied everyday.
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. At some point, I liked staying inside more than going out. You can watch TV, play music or videos on Youtube, and just chill.
The place made it convenient to access all my favorite spots in Busan. The neighborhood has also everything you need which makes it convenient.
Finally, as you may know from Covid19, many Fancy hotels, such as Arban, that were previously unreachable to some of us are now bookable for a reasonable price. So why not indulge in a little luxury?
