Very nice Hanok guesthouse close to all touristic places of Gyeongju. This guesthouse is perfect for a stay to visit the region (bulguksa temple/gyeongju/namsan mount)
Rooms are perfectly tidy and clean, and with all comfort. The hosts are very kind, and give you indications for restaurants and tourist areas.

Breakfast is shared with all the guests and it is very tasty and nice.

Thank you again for your warm welcome

We stayed here as a family of four travelling around South Korea. We only stayed here 1 night but was an experience in itself. It was the first place we went that was more traditional. The building of the guesthouse was a beautiful Hanok. The owners could speak enough English and helped us greatly with arranging our bus journeys. They even emailed us to check we got to our next guesthouse safely. Our room had two wooden bunk beds. The beds were quite firm and quite like a traditional bed however, both the room and bathroom were clean. The breakfast was very good with and variety of extras such as broccoli, apple, fruit and Korean dishes. But if you weren't into that, then there was toast available with jam and Nutella. Overall, the guesthouse was lovely and the kids loved to stroke the owners cats.

Easily one of my best stays in a guesthouse. The hosts were kind and helpful. They even gave suggestions on our ways to the tourist spots illustrated in a beautiful map drawn by them.They were artists and you get that feeling just by looking around especially on the breakfast area. The room was clean and cozy. Breakfast was wonderful as there were eggs, soup, toast, jam, peanut butter, juice, coffee, fruits! Location is pretty near tourist attractions. Loved my stay in there. :)

The Doran Doran Guest House is a gem. It is extremely well located, with a comfortable room and friendly hosts. Our taxi driver had a little trouble finding them, but once we were oriented, it was easy.

We knew what we were getting into, given the photos and reviews on Booking.com. Know that the rooms are small and there is limited space for luggage. We got a bed on a platform, so we would have a little more room by sliding things under the bed.

The only issue was the cats. Beyond having them all over the path and steps to the breakfast room, one scratched me and our guesthouse smelled like cat urine. If you are allergic and cat-phobic or sensitive to smells, be really aware of this reality.

Room tip: While the traditional Korean rooms are more authentic, I liked having room under the platform bed.

Dorandoran was within a long (but quite manageable) walk from Gyeongju Station. I hoofed it all the way without much difficulty, but those with large luggage or not particularly keen on a longish stroll might consider taking a bus or taxi. From the guesthouse itself, Cheomseongdae is a short skip away (practically just across the street), and I was able to walk to/from many of the key attractions in central Gyeongju.

The guesthouse itself was a delight to stay in. Hanok-inspired with all the modern conveniences, and equipped with ondol (underfloor) heating that was an absolute treat for my frozen feet in the cold winter weather of February. My only real complaint is that the unheated ensuite bathroom felt like a walk-in freezer, but this shouldn’t be a problem outside of the cold winter months.

A simple but satisfying complimentary breakfast of bread, ham, cheese, and sliced fruit is served in the common area.

The husband-and-wife hosts were gracious and accommodating in every way possible, and spoke excellent English. The mum (not sure if the husband’s or the wife’s) who helped around the guesthouse couldn’t speak much English, but she was as sweet and helpful as could be, even ringing someone up on her mobile for me when I posed a rather challenging question about museum schedules.

All things considered, I was absolutely delighted with my stay and would be glad to return.
