Hotel Hyundai Ulsan4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Stayed here recently on a business trip. The hotel is very well appointed with all the amentities you'd expect from a "5 Star Hotel." I would not necessarily call it a 5 star hotel though, closer to good 4 star. The room was very clean and with nice linens. The bathroom had everything you could ask for during a business stay. The hotel also has a nice fitness center with pool and sauna downstairs. They also have a gift shop and a couple restaurants in the lobby but all are very pricey. The breakfast was included in my stay and was excellent. If you have a handicap, be aware of the bathroom. The shower is in the tub which is quite high with granite outside. It is a big step up and gets slippery. The location is decent with the Hyundai Department Store right across a nice park that is across the street. There aren't many other restaurants around though.
Having heard about Ulsan City, spending a night at this hotel was a jewel in the crown for me. I visited with my friend at the time when Cherry Blossoms were blooming. The park in front of the hotel had the cherries and the view overlooking the hotel was just aesthetic. Right adjacent the hotel is the Hyundai Department store to help you with shopping needs. I enjoyed varieties of sumptuous meals at the Topaz restaurant for the dinner buffet and breakfasts. The staff was helpful and friendly. The red velvet cake I got from 'The Shop' was so delicious. The rooms were clean, cozy and soothing for my weekend getaway. I couldn't have wished for more than that. The service quality won my admiration. It was indeed an enthralling experience for me and I strongly recommend this hotel for any traveler visiting Ulsan. Do not forget to take a tour of the nearby attractions like the Ilsan Beach and the Hyundai Heavy Industries yard.
Somehow this hotel decor reminded me of a cruise ship cabin. I don't mean that it was small, but very clean, tidy and purposeful design. Not an architectural masterpiece, but solidly built. Obviously a great location for business at the adjacent shipyard.
My experience staying here for several nights was generally very good--somewhere between a 3 and a 4 on TA's scale, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. The location is away from the center of town, so if you need to be centrally located you might want to consider other hotels. On the other hand, if you want to be away from the congestion of the center or you need to be close to Hyundai Heavy Industries, the location is very good. It's nice that there is a park right across the street. My room was fine--big enough though not spacious. The bathroom was plenty big. I had a view over the park, so that was pleasant, although a couple of mornings there was some speech-making coming over a VERY loud speaker system somewhere outside. If I had been trying to sleep in it would have been impossible. It may have had something to do with the recent impeachment of the president. I don't know, and it certainly wasn't the hotel's fault. Breakfast was fine. They also have a ground-floor restaurant where I had a nice bibimbap lunch. It was served quickly and was quite good. The hotel staff were generally quite friendly and wanted to be helpful--especially the concierge, who gave me some very good information about things to do and see in Ulsan when I had a free day. My only complaint, though, involves the staff. While they were generally friendly and attentive, a couple of times this was not the case. My first morning, I went down to breakfast about 15 minutes before the breakfast closing time. It was very clear when I entered the restaurant that the hostess was unhappy that I was there. She pointed out the time, gave me a sour look, and really acted as if I was a great burden. Hey, it's possible to eat breakfast in 15 minutes, no? All the other staff in the restaurant were great, and no one else complained (they even asked shortly after 9 if it would be OK to clean up the buffet), but it wasn't a nice start. On another occasion, I alerted the front desk staff to two issues. The room temperature was too high, and the in-room safe was not working. They promised to see to both. They did indeed lower the temperature (the control in the room had no effect), though it took the better part of a day to do it. But no one ever came to take care of the safe. I suspect it simply needed a fresh battery. These gaps in service were not enough to undermine what was a pleasant stay in every other way, but they do perhaps point to the need for a bit of additional staff training on sensitivity and service. Bottom line: Depending on what you are in Ulsan for, the Hotel Hyundai could be a very good choice. I enjoyed it, and wouldn't mind staying there again if I don't need to be right in the heart of things. But I'll make sure I show up early for breakfast. :-)
I found this hotel to be a lot better than expected. The room was very clean and quiet. I also found the staff to be very professional especially at the Topaz restaurant. The buffet dinner and breakfast both had excellent food with a lot of variety. On top of that, it's next to a nice park (Hyundai Art Park) that had beautiful cherry blossoms while we were there. I would definitely come back!
It is great hotel to travel. It's location is not near downtown so it is quiet to stay. There're a lake and a park within 5 minutes on foot, east coast beach is only 5 minutes away by car which is I like the most about this Hyundai hotel. Warm service, neat and delicious food as well. I've heard even locals like this place to have a good time with family and friends.
I loved the atmosphere of the hotel and inside is really cool. Rooms and beds are really comfortable. Also they have buffet and bar with cocktails, massaging shop, sauna and swimming pool. if you are traveling near the ulsan this is the best hotel to stay i guess. At the evening, there is a hyundai shuttle bus for travelling around ulsan city.
I stayed at the hotel only one night, but I tried out many of the facilities. The buffet restaurant has very tasty high quality food. The drinks and snacks at the hotel bar were also very nice, although a bit pricey. The room was also very comfortable and modern and the staff speaks english very well.
Located at the east side of Ulsan, Hyundai Hotel provides you lodging that's not too near from the city, giving you a chance to get in touch with nature. It's located really near to Ilsan Beach and the famous Daewangam. It's an exceptional hotel that has massage, pool, bar, buffet facilities and a great view. Enjoyed the dinner and breakfast buffet which had a wide variety of dishes. On top of that, the bar in the basement has an exquisite atmosphere and a live piano performance too.
The staff is absolutely excellent. They provided me with maps, tips for sightseeing and free shuttle service to the Ulsan Observatory. The room was big and the bed super comfortable. I also loved the view of the garden from the room. The hotel is located next to Hyundai Department store, making it easy to go shopping. The buffet restaurant TOPAZ is first-class and we also enjoyed the cocktails at Havana Bar. I can't wait to return to Hyundai Hotel Ulsan.
