We stayed in the room 211 and 212. These rooms are "deluxe" room with king size bed and upscale bathroom (Bathroom even has a jet bubble tub - I did not expect to see such a nice bathroom in a hotel of this price range). Very nice accommodation, nice firm bed, clean sheets and linen, TV with good number of...

Nice hotel, friendly staff. Super comfortable and clean. People at front desk provided me a lot of information about the best places to visit, and the best way to do it, since Gyeongju has many places to visit and they are scattered around the city and surroiundings.

We stayed here as it was centrally located, we also had a rental car. We didn't book breakfast, but it's next door to Paris Baguette, McCafe and a 7/11. Reception staff spoke v good English and provided maps in English for sites and restaurants. I would recommend the hotel for its location. Although the room felt clean, it could have...

This hotel was the best decision we could have made. The twin room was very big, the shower excellent, and the internet wifi worked the whole time. Just 1-2 minutes walking there were nice cafeterias to have breakfast and the bus to Busan Airport. But the best was the receptionist. He is very friendly, with lot of information of tourists...

The room interior reminded me of Lotte Hotel! The room was big, but we could hear everything people on the floor above us were talking about. Also, the massage chairs didn't work, and the sink was leaking, moreover, there were a lot of hairs on the carpet.. But overall it was a nice stand there.

Great hotel. Reception staff speaks English and is very helpful and smiling. Rooms are large and well appointed. However, bring your own shampoo and shower gel as they only provide a small hand soap bar (and body lotion). Towels are also on the small side, as usual in Korea. Free wifi. Very conveniently located close to the historic sites downtown....

The DY hotel is conveniently located right by the bus terminal, at walking distance from the Gyeongju Historic Area and the Tumuli park. The hotel was recently renovated, which is quite visible in the lobby. The rooms are clean, comfortable, with new furniture, kettle and excellent wifi connection. We found some holes and unfinished works in the bathrooms, and we...

Close to express bus and local bus terminals. About 15-20 minutes taxi ride from KTX Shingyeonju station. Checkin: Smooth. Full payment of booked stays up front....

The hotel itself is nice. Though but for bus travellers, most valuable is its location right next to the Express bus terminal, and very close (walking distance) to historic sites of the city. The choice of breakfast dishes is rather broad, yet a little unusual for European taste.
