Hilton Gyeongju

Reviewed 7 October 2013

We wanted to explore Gyeongju's many historic sites and chose the Hilton as our base. It's a fine hotel, as you would expect from Hilton, with spacious, well-appointed rooms, several restaurant options - all of them expensive - and nice fitness facilities - also pricey.
Its location, however, for our purpose of discovering Gyeongju's Shilla heritage, was too far from town, requiring a US$ 30 taxi ride each way, each time. And early October, the Bomul resort area is dead, many of its shops and facilities closed. So, if it's peace and quiet you're looking for, great place to be. And the hotel staff - especially the Concierges - are outstandingly helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: If you are paying for a lake view, try to make sure your room actually overlooks the lake rather tha...

This hotel is located in the Bomun resort area where the environment is quite and the air is fresh with many pine trees and Cherry trees. My room with lake view has beautiful view and is clean and spacious. Early April month would be a good month to visit when the Cherry trees blossom ! October would be a good month too when the weather is cooler. I find Bulguksa Temple, the Seokguram Grotto and Gyeongju National Museum being the three best places to visit.

Stayed here for one night with my two teenagers. The hotel is what you would expect from a large Hilton. Grand entrance, stylish, spacious room, excellent services, helpful, friendly staff. There was a good range of TV stations in English for the kids and good wi-fi. The restaurants looked very good but they were upscale and expensive which might have been great for a couple but made them less of a good choice for a family in terms of value and teenage tastes. However, there is a Starbucks behind the hotel which was good for breakfast and a fabulous Korean barbeque place in the mall across the street which were better suited to our needs and more affordable. As others have commented, the pool facilities are extra and are quite expensive, but the pool was lovely and it was worth it for the kids to get some pool time after sightseeing. We did get an excellent deal on the room rate so even with the extra costs for the pool it was a pretty good deal overall. Personally, I find these large, international hotels a bit impersonal and the area is also a bit lacking in character, but that is just personal preference and the hotel itself was very high standard.

I have stayed at this hotel several times. The newly renovated rooms are very nice, with comfortable beds and contemporary furnishings. The breakfast buffet is fantastic. The location on Bomun Lake is very convenient to the walking path around the lake and other attractions. Best hotel in Gyeongju!

Lovely accommodations with very spacious room & good family dining. Excellent for a family with a variety of ages. We did not use the water facilities, but it would have been wonderful for children of any age. Food was very good, although a bit expensive for a family. Service in the dining room was very good, with great care for the children.

They've renovated rooms recently. It was a good sleep buried in comfortable bed after pleasant bath. In the morning we had a fresh walk around the Bomun lake. The art gallery was also good to look around. There are indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a jaccuzzi. The outdoor swimming pool is 1.6 meters deep enough to enjoy floating.
The bakery served good breads like rye bread. And my son liked beef-fry-rice at chinese restaurant.
We could have a good time at Gyeungju World amusement park nearby.
