Bellus Rose Pension is located outside Gyeongju and towards Bulguksa and Seoguram. It is in a pension village about 20 mins outside. So you have to get down at the bus stop and make a call. Either Mrs Park or Mr Kang will come to pick you up very soon. It is just 5 mins on car and 10 mins plus walk away from the bus stop. They provide free drop and pick up service. All you have to do is call when u reach the bus stop after your trips. If you don't have a phone, ask the Seven Eleven people to help you. Bus to town and Bulguksa both costs KRW1000. Add another KRW1000 to go to Seoguram.
The rooms are nice and cozy. We were in the pink room. The place, in snow and greenery, will look beautiful. Summer means use of the swimming pool in the backyard. The kitchenette allows you to cook a simple meal. Both the toilet and room are spacious. Extra bed, Breakfast and laundry service are all available for KRW 10000. If you arrive in winter, ask Mrs Park to set the Ondol heating a bit higher. First night we were cold, second a bit more comfortable. Only the third night, it was just right.
Mrs Park was helpful and drove us to the nearby Teddy Bear Museum. She also gave us discount coupons. She also helped us book a room in Sokcho when the hotel receptionist we called could not speak English!
If you want to stay in a quiet place and away from town, this pension is a good find. If you plan to stay here all day, then you may need to stock your kitchenette. Simple meal ingredients can be bought from the Seven Eleven at the bus stop. More ambitious menu means a trip to the town. A walk down to the bus stop will take you some very nice and affordable local food joints!
There is a horticultural park and and bird park near the bus stop. Buying a 2in1 ticket will save you some money. The Teddy Bear museum is nice. Bulguksa and the Tumulis are beautiful. Seoguram Grotto is under conservation so cannot see much. However the walk to the grotto is scenic.
