This ageing resort hotel was pleasant enough for a one-night stay while exploring Gyeongju with a car and driver, but I would not like to have stayed longer. Once our driver had left for the night, we were "marooned" with no place to go other than a few nearby restaurants reached via uneven surfaces that would be dodgy to negotiate... More

Good: Renovated rooms on 6th & 7th floors were quite nice. Free WIFI. Old fashioned spa in good quality. Golf course next by. Green walking area near hotel. Bad: No water filled in the outdoor pool even it's August. Far from central area of the city. Unclean water pot.

Stayed here on the way back from Ulsun to Seoul. The grounds/views of the hotel are really nice -- these are the highlights, especially if you get a room on an upper floor. As for the rooms, the good news is they are pretty big and roomy. The bad news is that they are VERY OUTDATED in that pretty much... More

Our group went to visit Gyeongju during the hot day in the ancient capital of Korea. Room is okay and the breakfast is nice for Korean standard. The staffs are caring but their English language skills are relatively low. The only downside was the air conditioning in my room. As it is unable to tolerate the heat and unable to... More

Hotel is located near Bulguksa and Seokgulam. We were there to go see Seokgulam sunrise, so location-wise, it was perfect for us. The hotel was last renovated in 2004, so it needs update desperately. Electrical outlets are outdated, and refrigerator was running with an electric transformer. They charge fee for shaver, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, and drinking water.

I stayed at this hotel with my family for one night during a visit to Gyeongju, a well-known historic city in Korea. We were assigned to a 'triple' room with three beds. Overall, the stay was better than I expected. The hotel is a bit outdated: the carpet on the corridor was slightly smelly, but the room was quite okay.... More

We stayed here as part of a tour. Our room turned out to be somewhat large compared to what's standard in Korea, which was good as we had 3 adults in the room. However, like many tourist hotels this one is in need of some refurbishing, especially in the bath area. Otherwise, it is in a good location for seeing... More

We were quite shocked by the poor state of the room and especially the bathroom which was so tired and outdated. Also, the acoustic performance of the walls was poor and there was little separation from noise of the nocturnal activities of our neighbours. Otherwise, the hotel is better, being well positioned for local tourist attractions and having helpful staff.... More
