We stayed at Sono motel while visiting Gyeongju. It is located fairly central which we found important as we were interested in the National Museum, the dolmens and other historic sites. The rooms were clean and fine.

We stayed here for 3 nights with our two little sons. The staff was very friendly and helpful, even with no knowledge of the Korean language we were able to communicate (staff doesn't speak English) as they tried hard to satisfy their guest. The Motel itself is kind of a weird place. Everything was clean and in good shape, but...

This motel is just one of the many motels in Gyeongju. It was better than what I had expected. The service staff were friendly and showed us how to operate the equipment in the room. There was wifi as well as an Internet PC provided. It's located really near the Jungang Market and around 600-700 metres walk from the Inter-city...
