Luxury by the beach, but pricey Sep 09, 2011
I stayed here because it was the conference hotel for a conference I was attending.

The staff and the accommodations were excellent and the location was fabulous (right on the beach, close to the aquarium, shopping, and many restaurants).

The only drawbacks were: Price (nearly US$200/night at the discounted conference rate for a city-view room with a $20/day surcharge for not-very-functional internet) and the typical asian brick/plywood mattress (I like a soft mattress).

The bathroom was spacious and the toilet was equipped with a very nice Toto Washlet series heated seat with bidet. The shower did have a strange tendency to vary quite a bit in temperature (from where I set it to cold, then to scalding, then back to where I set it without any intervention on my part) on a frequent, but irregular interval.

The view of the city was actually nice, though admittedly I didn't spend a great deal of time in my room not asleep, so this wasn't really a factor. The room did have a nice balcony.

Though I requested a non-smoking room, I'm not sure the hotel actually had such a thing, but, the room had been cleaned thoroughly enough that I couldn't tell it had been smoked in other than by the presence of ash trays for my convenience should I decide to adopt the habit.

One very nice feature was a couple of american-style outlets near the work desk which made plugging in my chargers and laptop convenient.

The Paradise Hotel is located in the Haeundae Beach area of Busan. Depending on how you travel to Busan, it can be a bit tricky to get to the hotel. There are several options including buses and taxis (We took the bus from the Busan train station). The hotel itself is very nice, modern and well appointed. There was a beautiful lounge area with a bar, several restaurants, a well-equipped fitness center and a fun pool area. At night it was pleasant to walk along the beach in front of the hotel. The hotel even had a casino for foreigners (Korean citizens aren't allowed to enter casinos). The rooms had plenty of amenities, but no free wi-fi. It had a comfortable bed, a nice LCD TV with several international channels and everything was super clean. Another interesting component of the hotel was that it had its own duty-free shop. It was fun to walk around and see some designer items, but there was no point for foreigners to shop there. One thing of note, the staff at the hotel don't speak English very well. I can't say if this is always the case, but I noticed that the overall competency in English was much lower in Busan, when compared to Seoul. Overall the hotel was not as classy as a Shangri-La, but it was very nice, reasonably priced and I would definitely stay here again if I returned to Busan.
