Really happy with our stay here. The small additional charge for breakfast is fabulous value. Coffee, juice, toast, egg, yogourt, fruit for less than a brewed coffee on the street!

Rooms were clean and big enough. There is also an onsite "sauna" included in the price, which is essentially like a Japanese onsen, with various hot baths, etc... I didn't see an actual "sauna" though! They allow locals to use it for a small fee, so I was the only non local in there, although it was quite busy. Bring your own shampoo, soap, etc... as that is expected. A small towel and locker key is provided at reception.

Location is good. Walk to the tombs, buses, and very close to the train station. Lots of eateries nearby, yet the location is quite quiet. However, the two biggest issues with the rooms themselves is that they aren't terribly soundproof. So bring earplugs if your next door neighbour snores! Not so much traffic noise though. The other issue is that the rooms have very tiny windows, which are opaque. So the room feels a bit dungeon like. Not a big deal, as the lighting is good, and if you don't spend much time in your room it isn't a big deal. I still gave the property five stars, considering what great value it is.

The location is 5min walking distance to Gyeongju Station (not KTX). There is carpark just beside hotel building. If you want to visit the Silla, there is a bicycle rental beside the carpark. You can ask the reception to bring you there. Reception speaks enough English to understand your needs.

Sauna is just beside reception, and it is free for guests. Go to reception and tell them "sauna" and they will give you a key. I think there are 3 pools, 1 sauna and shower areas. Opens only 5am-7pm.

After the main door, there is a shoe area before the room door. Room size is good. Bathroom size is huge too. A pack of toiletries is provided, which includes toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream/etc, facial wash/cream - quite comprehensive. However, their bed and pillows are too soft to my liking. Breakfast is not included. You have to request by evening, and pay 2,000W.

Great hotel and location.
I found the staff very helpful. The front desk manager took the extra effort ( without being asked) in calling the Samsung company to enquire re fixing my phone which was not working.
24 hrs coffee is available in the cafe downstairs. It has fuss ball table to play with your family in the cafe.
It is a mini hotel but the rooms are decent size.
Be prepared to have a semi transparent bathroom door.
If you are travelling by KTX then you have to catch a local bus which is near the hotel. If you traveling by the interstate bus then be prepared to take a shorter local bus ride or walk for 20 min (which we did).

Room Tip: higher rooms

- Short walk from the Gyeongju train station
- Easy walk to bus stop to travel to Bulguksa Temple
- Can walk (about 30 minutes) to other Gyeongju tourist destinations including Daereungwon Tomb Complex, Anapji pond and Cheomseongdae Observatory
- Clean and modern
- the cheapest breakfast going around at 2000 won - it was nothing fancy but included cereal, fruit, yoghurt and toast
- helpful staff
- on a new-looking shopping and food district

- the shower curtain does absolutely nothing to keep the water in the shower area - the entire bathroom floor is wet
- Korean sized towels only

We arrived Busan airport and took intercity bus (60min) to Gyeongju
The hotel is about 2 km from Gyeongju intercity bus station , we took taxi to the hotel. The taxi fare(3000won) is cheap. Hotel is 5min walk from Gyeongju train station (not the KTX station). The hotel was right at the city centre and surrounded by small streets and local stalls. The hotel check in was efficient and the reception spoke reasonable English, very helpful. Our room was in 5th floor with a small window, there was no wardrobe. This is quite typical of a Korean Motel. The room was quiet, spotless, bed and pillow were comfortable. The room light control was sophisticated and it took time to familiar. Wifi strong .The toilet was clean .There were bath tub and shower. Unfortunately, there is not partition between the shower and WC, toilet floor got wet after shower. The breakfast was not included but it costed only 2000won( 2USD). I recommended to book the breakfast upon arrival. The hotel was also near to the major tourist spots( Royal tombs )and bus stop to Bugalsa/ tradition Korean village .The hotel was a nice place for you to explore Gyeongju and gave you a sound sleep after a day trip.
