We rented a car in Seoul and drove up to Gyeongju to visit Polaris and to finally meet Matthew in person. (I do suggest using Naver Map and getting the Korean address from Matthew before driving over) We parked at Polaris - yes, there's limited parking lots, hurray And Matthew came out to greet us! Matthew, our host, was extremely...

I spent four nights in Polaris Pension in October 2016. Even before I got there, owner Matthew was very helpful, answering any questions I had and arranging my pick up from the train station. The pension is very colourful and welcoming and cosy. I had one of the upper rooms, so I had a nice view of the surroundings. The...

Based on reviews from trip advisor, we booked the Polaris Pension for two nights in September 2014, and were not disappointed! We ended up getting a taxi from the Gyeongju train station to the Pension (too tired to carry our bags on public transport) and were surprised at how far away the pension is from the centre of Gyeongju. But,...

We are a family of four who just spent three nights at Polaris. I agree with all the positive reviews of this place. Two things stand out - the peacefulness and beauty of the location and Matthew's amazing hospitality. Our room had everything we needed, including good air conditioning and in terms of decor it felt a bit like staying...

Matthew is a great host : he takes the time to advise you on the best places to go as well as all the details you need in terms of transportation. He also picked us up at the bus station with all our luggage. The pension is very peaceful and quiet, with a great garden, a swimming pool and cute...

We knew this would be good from the first email we got from the owner, Matthew, a few weeks after we booked the pension. Gyeongju is quite spread out and so it was difficult to choose somewhere to stay. We definitely picked the right place! Matthew picked us up from the local (Bulguksa) rail station which is past Gyeongju station...

Live up to its name of being a pension: peace, great scenery, and what you see is what you need! Even though it may be a distance away from town, all traveling information including the most important bus arrival schedule will be provided upon your arrival. The owner and his family is also friendly and speaks good English so fret...
