This hotel has been certified by Korea Quality, which is a certified designation system to help tourists select high-quality facilities and services. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The reception staff was so efficient and friendly; we had a quick and easy check-in. The facilities were clean and very well designed. It had everything we needed for our stay: spacious room, comfortable queen size beds with clean linens, bathroom with basic toiletries, a big display TV, and free Wi-Fi in the room. The breakfast offers a great variety of food for all tastes. The best thing about this hotel is that every room has the LG Styler, which is very convenient, especially for business travelers. I strongly recommend staying at this hotel when you plan your trip to Gyeongju.

The room is very new and clean, in addition to the essential items for use at the hotel such as a dryer, a refrigerator, a television, etc. they also had a drying closet which kind of convenient to travelers. The surrounding streets are also clean, around there are convenience stores and supermarkets open 24/24 so it is also quite good.

Breakfast is buffet with many delicious dishes, although the restaurant space is a bit small, if there are many customers, you have to wait. If I go to Gyeongju again, I will definitely choose this hotel.

Are you curious about how good this hotel is? Well, this hotel got a qualified (Korea Quality) by KTO (Korea Tourism Organization) to be one of the best hotel in Korea. We got a twin room, and omg the bed was soooo big (probably SS or Q size) and the pillow was super comfy. There's a really wide TV, wide desk, and even a styler!!!! ofcourse teapot, fridge, hairdryer, and toilet supplies provided. Oh! talking about toilets, it's separate into 3 parts, the main one has a wide mirror and sink, then a room for toilet 🚽, and another for a stand bath. I highly recommend you guys to have a night there if u get to visit Gyeongju. Also, there's variety of menus for breakfast, my favorite was the anchovy soup with seaweeds!!

A more sophisticated establishment than its location alongside the bus terminals in the 'love motel' part of town: all looks smart and new still, and a good breakfast in the lobby area. Pretty spacious room, made special by the LG Styler - a clever wardrobe-sized devise which steams, cleans and presses your clothes. Gyeongju definitely worth a stopover en route from Seoul to Busan; the 45 minute express bus to Busan starts just 3 minutes walk away (we discovered that the Express Bus Terminal has the faster buses than the separate Intercity Bus Terminal!)

I stayed 1 night at Rivertain. The hotel got a Korea Quality by Korea Tourism Organization so no need to doubts about the quality. The hotel is nice and cozy. Staffs were all friendly.
The room was clean, modern and well equipped. I especially like the LG styler team. The bath robe was comfortable. The bed was good so that I could sleep well and felt so good at the following day.
Rivertain hotel also has a good location. It's easy to take bus and taxi because the bus terminal and taxi are near by, it only takes 1 min walking.

I stayed here for a night. I was surprised that it was exactly just beside the Gyeongju Bus terminal so its location is pretty convenient. The bed was really soft and comfortable and the bathroom is great. I really loved their breakfast, so delicious and diverse.

Correct hotel 20 minutes walking distance from main attractions of the city. Room was quite big and this was good but staff is not really friendly, communication was quite difficult as they didn't speak english fluently, we asked couple of things about city and general information and they didnt seem very interested to help us. I am sure you can find better options and closer to the city centre.

The hotel is ok located, but pretty basic. No frills. Staff did not talk good English, so were not very helpful. Breakfast was nog continental, but mostly Korean (and as much as I like Korean food, I cannot eat Kimchi or fish to start the day). The bed was very good. Gyeongju is really very nice with a good vibe.

If you arrive by train (Gyeongju is served by Singyeongju station) you have to take a bus between the station and the city: 10/15 minutes. Most lines coming from the station serve a stop near the Intercités bus terminal, this is where you have to get off, it is 200 m from the hotel. The area around the hotel is ordinary.
The hotel has around fifty rooms, large and well designed. The bathroom area in particular with separate areas for sink/shower/WC. In addition, sliding doors allow you to separate the bedroom itself from the entrance hall and the bathroom.

The employees at the reception spoke decent English.

In the bedroom there is a wardrobe for drying clothes.
The only part to review the electricity: if the lighting is of good quality, the control of the lamps is curious for the bedroom part (RAS for the bathroom): everything is centralized on a wall panel, located on the wall opposite the bed. And when I say everything, that’s everything, including the bedside lamp! So if you read in your bed at night, you have to get up to turn it off, and then grope back to bed. Same thing if you get up during the night: figure out who can (there are buttons on the television remote control marked “Lamp 1”, Lamp 2”, etc., but they didn't work.) And the reception doesn't work. was able to tell us more.

Likewise, there are few sockets (3 including the one for the kettle) which also do not ensure good electrical contact.
I had read excellent reviews about the breakfast buffet, which was included in the room rate, and they are not overrated: there are croissants, bread, cakes, coffee machine, yogurt, cornflakes ( and some fruits, a rare commodity in Korea). In short, something to keep you going even if you're not a fan of Korean food for breakfast...
