New and nicely located hotel, not far from the bus station and the center of Gyeongju. The rooms are spacious and equipped with every comfort. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is large and has a jacuzzi. The night porter is simply adorable, he gave us excellent directions for dinner and he was very helpful. We were also offered...

Five Breakfast choices and each including fruits and yogurt. Friendly and helpful staff speak English well, no problem with communication. Bus Stop No.10 and 11 and Bus 203...

This is a great option for Gyeongju - rooms are modern and very comfortable (huge Jacuzzi bath in superior rooms which was vey welcome in -9 degrees!) and owners are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is simple but good (a couple each of Western and Korean options) and the coffee, available all day, is superb. The owners have though about...

What an experience. This hotel was a gem. I stayed there for 6 nights and had the luxury double room. Great staff. Very clean room. Cleaned every day. 5 min walk to bus station to the airport in Busan, and 6 min walk to the bus that goes to Bulguksa temple

Very good value for money - decent location although it is in a slightly seedy area with lots of love hotels (but this doesn't appear to be one of them). They have obviously tried very hard to make this a nice place - it maybe falls a little short as the furnishings aren't super high quality but the service is...

Stayed here for two nights in early November. We got a complimentary shuttle ride from the KTX train station to the hotel. This was extremely convenient as the information for taking buses or taxis to the hotel/Gyeongju area is somewhat limited and confusing. I believe you get a choice of one free ride from/to the KTX train station if you...

The area is crowded with love motels, but this is NOT one of them. The rooms are the best we found in our Korean trip: wide and spacious, all amenities, squeaky clean, 55 inches TV, kitchen corner, Jacuzzi, free ride from the KTX train station, all for a (very) reasonable price.

This is a very good hotel. The price are cheap and the room are comfortable. The reception can speak very well in English. The one problem is it's location. This place location is in the motel road. This place is on the motel road but it's ok if you don't come with kids.
