This is a really beautiful place for a traditional hanok stay. Most of the buildings are brand new and the location is excellent, very close to the famous grave sites of Gyeongju. The room itself was rather small with no frills. Same goes for the bathroom, were you have no separate shower, so everything is wet (even the toilet) after taking a shower. The boiler in the bathroom was rather noisy and woke us up several times during the night. You have to make your own bed in this hanok: duvets are provided. We were disappointed that we couldn't try the breakfast, since the (also brand new) breakfast building was still under construction. Staff doesn't speak English.
I visited the hotel when I was in Gyeongju for inspection. I was so impressed and did not want to leave it. It is very beautiful Korean traditional house. It is quaint, boutique, local, historic and filled with the warmth of the host. Rooms are clean and spacious, the service personal and very caring. I totally fell in love with this because of its almostphere and coziness. A perfect place to relax and rest. Thanks for the warm welcome and great hospitality of Mr. Lim - the owner.
This was a great find. It was new and yet had a very traditional feel about it. The room was small however had sufficient space for 3 of us. The toilet was designed in the routine method and had no separate shower facility however was sufficient for a good shower with good water pressure and temperature. There was a cafe attached to the back of the hotel and we got a 1000 Won discount voucher on checking in. The most interesting part was that there was a small room with hanbok for you to try for free and you can take pictures on the grounds. You can also ask the staff to take one picture for you and they will print it out for you. The staff was very pleasant and helpful too.
The rooms are spacious. This was a traditional-style hanok, but we had the western-style beds (did not sleep on floor). The hotel manager went out of his way to help us (call cabs, recommend restaurants, etc.). It was very easy to walk downtown for restaurants. The tombs and museum were also very close. The KTX station is a 15 minutes cab ride away, and were able to take the train into Busan for a day.
Our family of four stayed at the HwangNamGuan hanok guesthouse in April 2016. It was a wonderful stay. A delicious traditional Korean breakfast was included. Taxis were plentiful but with this location, we walked everywhere, to the Cheonmachong Tomb, the Donggung Palace and Wolji Pond (stunning) , the Cheomseongdae gardens, etc. It was spring so cherry blossoms lined both sides of the streets. The hanok itself was beautiful in its traditional style and amazing architecture. You can choose to sleep on the floor or request a room with beds. We were in a very spacious 3-room suite with sliding partitions, complete with a modern bathroom. Our kids enjoyed the free wifi. The hanok also has traditional korean clothing you can wear and pose for pictures at no charge. Staff was helpful and attentive while limited English was spoken. If we find ourselves back in Gyeongju, we will stay here again!…
I arrived around 10pm. The night view was so beautiful and people from hotel were so kind and they wore modern style Korea traditional clothes 'Hanbok'. I stayed one night in the room which has Korean floor heating system. It was small but good. There are several historical place around hotel about 5-10 minutes by walk.
It is very beautiful Korean traditional house and can experience Korean traditional costume and games.. But their check in and out time is not flexible. 3pm Check in 11am check out.. I reached at this place at 1pm and asked for keeping my luggage.. But they didn't keep for you. You have to pay and keep your belongings in locker.
We had two nights there. That is clean and recommended for novice of guest house of Korean-style. There are a church nearby and also a lot of Korean restaurants and the famous coffee chain store and a convenience store. You can cache the local currency with a credit card from the ATM of the convenience store. Since a full-fledged restaurant in the guest house is not, please go out to eat dinner with friends. We enjoyed Jjigae soup and Don Don wine at the restaurant and then walked from around 8:00 pm to the old observatory to join the illuminated events. It became late after walking around the park but we did not get lost because the Cross of the Church lighted green until morning. Basic communication in English by the staffs is no problem. You can reserve Korean-style breakfast at the reception. Since the breakfast is not expensive as compared to the shop in front of the station, the reservation of breakfast is recommended in order to save time for sightseeing.…
Hwangnamkwan Hanok Guesthouse is well located in the old town, not far from the main attractions. Also quite a short taxi ride from the express bus terminal. Having seen some of the main part of the city I think a tourist would be crazy to take a hotel in the bigger new area. There is no need to go there. The old town area is much more pleasant. They have a very nice breakfast/coffee area by reception and the courtyard is a real highlight. We enjoyed a few glasses of wine on an evening sitting there. They also have some traditional Korean clothes you can try. The rooms are in traditional style but clearly the buildings have been built very recently. They are basic but clean and the shower was fine. On the small side and you have to make your bed but this seems standard in Hanoks. The bed was comfortable enough. Korean traditional towels are very small. If you want a larger towel for a shower you need to get one from reception each morning. The staff spoke limited English but were very friendly. I would recommend trying their breakfast once. They have wifi. All in all an enjoyable stay.…
