We booked the hotel based on the reviews on tripadvisor and I must say that I was not disappointed. It is more like a homestay rather than a hotel. Located right at the end of the Pension Village (a cluster of Pension Hotels), it is quiet and comfortable.
We were picked up and greeted by Mrs Park upon our arrival at Gyeongju Train Station (call her prior to arrival). She is friendly and helpful in making us comfortable, introducing us to the main attractions in Gyeongju and the directions to those locations. She even prepared breakfast for us. Although the breakfast was simple, it was fulfilling.
The room is spacious and clean and comfortable. The bed (or mattress in our case) was also very nice and comfortable to sleep in. We stay in a family room so there is a kitchen for us to do some basic cooking.
Although Mrs Park mentioned that the walk to the main street (where the convenience stores and eateries are) is approximately 10mins, we took longer than that, approx, 15 - 20mins. I guess, Korean walk faster than us!! But once you are out, there are buses taking you to town as well as the main tourist attractions.
For sure, this is one 'hotel' which I would highly recommend for those who want to try something different from the usual hotel. With Mrs Park's hospitality, you will not regret it!!
