Apsan Business Hotel
Ranked #15 of 51 Hotels in Daegu
Reviewed 6 May 2017

Stayed in Daegu to visit the Haeinsa Temple and fly to Jeju Island. The subway was about ten minutes away which was fine. The hotel itself has a decent lobby. The most bizarre thing was a suggested 1700 check in. Access to the room was available by at least 1545 so something better. Staff English was limited but able to arrange the taxi ride to the Haeinsa Temple. The rooms are fine. Wifi was reliable. The number of toiletries was very good, including a collection of hair brushes [if needed] and after shave. The most disappointing feature was breakfast, bad enough in the lobby but just toast, cake and coffee. When I stayed there, few businessmen were in sight. A different practice was leaving the hotel key on departure in a box in the elevator.

Why they call this a business hotel is beyond me. I actually thought it was a joke when I walked into my hotel room for the first time. My room was laid out very awkwardly with no doors on the bathroom. There was only one light switch/control panel for all lights in the room which was near the corner of the bed and unreachable unless you were on the bed or sticking your arm through the wall from the bathroom. A hard plastic/vinyl couch with a small table in front of it was really the only place to sit and work unless you could sit on a small stool with no back on it on the desk attached to the wall. The bed was hard as a rock. There was no actual shower with a fixed shower head and area to take a shower. I had to use a wand in the awkwardly large round tub. The hotel provided one towel and a few hand towels, but stored them in the main living area instead of the bathroom. The soap was reused by who knows how many people. There were dirty combs and brushes available as well as a tube of used toothpaste. They advertise free breakfast, but bread and jam for toast is not breakfast. No good options nearby either for food other than a market next door to buy something to eat in your room. Only good thing was that you could turn off the heater as a lot of hotels don't let you in Korea and the television was large. I just felt dirty and uncomfortable for the entire time I was in the hotel.

Friendly staff, clean and inexpensive hotel.
Coffee shops and food nearby.
Not too far from a train station.
Most people in Daegu don't speak or understand English, however i have had a wonderful time.

Reasonable price. Smooth check-in. Quiet area close to downtown Daegu. Room was ok, some space and the bathroom was good. Staff speaks very little english. Easy to get a taxi outside. Would come back.

Carpet in room was tatty and unclean and had not even been vacuumed. Despite a 'free translation' sign in the reception area the staff only spoke a few words of English and as a result kept providing us with incorrect information. On two occassions they tried to charge us money for things we had not used/ asked for. It wasn't possible for us to have laundry done at all despite repeated enquires to different staff members, as they couldnt tell us how much it would cost, or how long it would take to do the laundry (and we were only staying there for a few days). The reception area smelled unclean. The carpets in the hallways were unclean and tatty. One evening we bumped into an incredibly drunk man right outside the hotel who, disturbingly, had a very young child with him. Doesnt seem like a very nice area. Had to hold my breath in the hotel lift because of the smoky/unclean smell. Our room was badly lit and quite dingy. There were a few unexplained dirty marks on the walls and flooring. The bed was okay, the sheets were clean and the staff were able to arrange a taxi for us to the airport when we left. Not sure why this is marketed as a business hotel. There was no desk space in the hotel room and nowhere really to do any work in the hotel. Wifi access was free but sporadic.There is also some kind of nightclub in the basement.

Can't understand why there are good reviews of this hotel on this site. The people who wrote these must have had very different experiences than we had. Price was okay but there must be better budget hotels available than this.

Just spent 2 nights here while visiting family. Not a 5-star hotel but 5-star value. Great location, very clean, friendly staff (no English but understand). Yes, bed was VERY hard but got a good night's sleep. Caution for non-smokers: some rooms smell of smoke but not overly. Will definitely stay here next trip.

We fell for their scheme to upgrade our room. The room was spacious and kept clean. We were grateful for fridge. Downside was the trick to upgrade, the poor lighting in the washroom which made shaving and makeup application sketchy and as mentioned in other reviews - the rock hard bed. This hotel was a good location - within walking distance to the green line subway. As in most areas, convenience stores and a myriad of local mom and pop restaurants. For the money, this was a cost effective lodging. While we had a complimentary breakfast, we did not try it. The coffees in the lobby was too weak

Room Tip: A good neighbourhood hotel. Economy classy
