As I am a Global Supporter for Hyundai Hotels in 2017, I had the chance to stay at Hyundai Hotel Ulsan, the first of the 5-star chain. In recent years, the city of Ulsan has experienced a major tourism development and is slowly transforming into a major destination for local and foreign visitors in South Korea.If you are looking for a comfortable, unique and central place to stay while in Ulsan, this hotel will surely make your dreams come true.
HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE TO STAY AT
HYUNDAI HOTEL ULSAN:
TIMELESS DESIGN WITH LOCAL CHARM
Hyundai Hotel Ulsan makes it easy to fall in love with. The entire hotel features timeless designs and high-quality furnishings. Due to its location near Hyundai Department store, most rooms face the beautiful park building a bridge between accommodation and shopping. What you might not know is that Ulsan is where Hyundai Heavy Industries, leading shipbuilding company, is headquartered. This is the reason why Hyundai Hotel was established here back in 1983.
THE ROOMS IN DETAIL
We were accommodated in a Super Double room with views of the lovely park. You can definitely tell that Hotel Hyundai Ulsan primarily caters to business people coming to Ulsan for Hyundai Heavy Industries – but in a good way. All rooms have a polished yet homey interior design. I especially liked the countless lighting options that we could easily navigate with a smart pad. All Superior Double rooms are located on floors 9 and 10 and come with a queen size bed. Each room offers complimentary vanity sets, tea, and water.
You also find a hairdryer, personal safe, slippers and lots of towels in the room. I loved the large bathtub and couldn’t resist to try it out the first night. The 47-inch Smart TV comes with over 50 channels and high-speed internet is available throughout the hotel. What I also find very practical is the double 220V and 110V plug you can easily switch back and forth. That means you don’t need to bring an adapter!

SUPERB LOCATION NEAR ILSAN BEACH
I especially loved the convenient location of Hyundai Hotel Ulsan. Even though there is no subway in Ulsan, the hotel is connected to all major bus lines, even the express bus limousine to the KTX station. Like mentioned above, the hotel is just across from Hyundai Department store which is great if you love shopping as much as I do – and don’t forget they have massive food courts too! Only a short bus/taxi ride away is Ilsan Beach, the most popular beach in the city, as well as the beautiful coastal park of Daewangam.
In the evening, Hotel Hyundai Ulsan also provides a free shuttle bus services to the Ulsan Observatory and back for a splendid night view of the entire city.

TOPAZ BUFFET RESTAURANT
Topaz is the best restaurant at the hotel and offers delicious buffet options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Not only hotel guests love Topaz, but also locals come here for a delicious meal. We had the dinner buffet and breakfast the next day and were always satisfied. We enjoyed the mix of Western and Asian options. The salad bar is very extensive and the chefs prepare fresh steak and raw fish/sushi for the guests.
– Breakfast : 06:30 ~ 09:30 (Weekdays)
– Lunch : 12:00 ~ 14:30

THE SHOP BAKERY
This lovely bakery/souvenir shop is great to pick up a bite before your sightseeing tour or a delicious cake before you check out. While it is part of the Hyundai Hotel Ulsan, it is one of the best bakeries in town as the locals appreciate the authentic European flavors.
BAR & BISTRO HAVANA
We decided to check out this lovely bar before heading to bed on our first day in Ulsan. We were pleasantly surprised by the vast selection of cocktails. I had a delicious Mojito and Jeongsu had a Tequila Sunrise. Both drinks were delicious and had just the right amount of alcohol in them (I hate when bars try to save the booze). The ambiance is sophisticated and upscale. A couple of minutes after we arrived, a pianist gave it her all to her versions of Sam Smith’s ‘Stay with Me’ and other modern songs.

While you might have never heard of Ulsan, it’s definitely worth checking out. When you do, Hyundai Hotel Ulsan is a great choice. The friendly staff did an amazing job guiding us to the best areas and attractions and made our stay stress-free and memorable! I will be back!
