It is important to stress from the outset, I was not staying for a few days, I was ensconced in the Commodore for 4 weeks, whilst in Busan on business.
While I may agree with some of the reviews on this site, I would strongly suggest that the scores would drop in line with the length of stay.
Rooms are adequate, in-room entertainment sadly lacking. For a hotel targetting business travellers, the lack of non-Korean channels was disappointing. I have never gone so long without viewing the TV!!!
Restaurants are where the Commodore REALLY slips up. The Amiral Yi and the Buffet restaurant sit side by side. The Admiral Yi's menu mirrors almost precisley the Room Service menu, with the resultant lack of variety. The Viking Buffet Restaurant is in a time warp. I have never attended a buffet style sitting where the food on offer does not change as the days pass. I could still tell you each dish on offer from memory (Pumpkin Soup was the starter staple, a number of (Insert Meat Here) Dish etc etc).. I actually lifted the gauntlet and accepted the challenge to see just how long I could contnue to visit the restaurant before succumbing... Finally, I had to exit my Groundhog Day and eat out, or order in from outside..
I have only just realised after checking the website that there is a 3rd restaurant in the Commodore, hidden away in the basement.. So my apologies for not being able to review that one...
A couple of days wouldn't be to bad. Any longer and the Commodore really starts to show its deficiencies..
