Pros: Perfect! Nothing to add. Great location. Next to trainstation. Easily to walk to all the sights or acces to busstops. Guesthouse made me feel welcome and at home :) Defenitely best place to stay while in Gyeongju!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is in such a convenient location. Very close to the train station and the express bus station, really close to the tombs, the hanok village, the confucian school, the massive shopping streets etc (I walked it all). There's a million restaurants/food places nearby. The staff were also really helpful and the rooms were very clean.
Cons: There's no lift so if you have lots of luggage keep that in mind. Also the beds were a bit squeaky and the curtains were loud to pull down so when people wake up early/come home late you night wake up. Curtains also don't block out all light
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The lady was so incredibly nice! She helped out with public transport and had lots of great tips on where to go and eat. Even gave me a better itinerary to get to Seoul including some tips on where to eat both in Geongju as during my train 'layover' in Daegu. Thank you so much! I also met some other solo travelers I could hang out with, which was great :)

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are so lovely and clean.
Cons: Breakfast.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Clean guesthouse in a good position with a nice breakfast included.
Cons: The four beds rooms have bulk beds: the upper one was too close to the celing in my opinion. Sharing with strangers a space where sink and beds are in the same room can be tricky.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Close to intercity bus station. Can either walk or take bus to different attractions.
Cons: Need to make your own breakfast & wash your own the dishes!!
5.8 Okay
Pros: Comfy pillows
Cons: -Dirty. toothpaste all over the taps and bathroom area. We found dirty towels left by the previous guests in the bathroom... -no daily cleaning just towels change - we had no duvet covers and had to ask for them. When we got them delivered to our room during our absence they were just put on our beds so we still had to put them on ourselves - we booked a twin room as it had shower separate from the toilet which was good though we had a FRIDGE between our beds - not even covered with anything - no desk, no hangers - we had to put our clothes on the floor - freezing cold kitchen area and terrible breakfast
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, friendly host, good breakfast, nice room.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, comfy room, good internet, good location, fresh towels every day - would recommend! The breakfast is rather basic (juice, milk, toast, eggs, butter and jam) and spreads other than butter and jam would have made the stay truly amazing!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location - We selected this place because it was approximately 4 mins walk from the bus terminal based on Naver map. We end up driving and it feels really near to the bus terminal as we saw the terminal right after a few turns. Room - Quite spacious, and clean. Bed was decent. The room number are written on the floor. Bathroom - Spacious and clean. Breakfast - The spread was reasonable with free flow of bread, jam, butter, cereal, milk, and eggs. You cook your own eggs and clean up after yourself. The eating area was spacious just like a mini school canteen. Staff - All the staff was nice and friendly. Speak decent English. Parking - There's parking space in front of the place. The staff will help you to park the car nicely. Due to limited space, the cars are double/triple parked, so you need to give the staff your car keys.
Cons: Bathroom - No shower screen, so the whole bathroom floor was entirely wet. Wasn't a nice experience for the next user. Only 1 tower rail. No enough hooks to put your clothes during shower. Room - Not enough hooks/hanger to put up clothes for 2 person.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was really nice, big and always warm. We had one big and comfortable bed for each one of us. The bathroomis fully equipped and really nice. The location couldn't be great as it is next to the bus station and in the middle of Gyeongju. The breakfast is included and consists on bread, cereal, eggs and coffee. The staff is always avaialble for help.
Cons: We asked for a place to keep our luggage after the check out and, although we could leave it without any problems, it was in the middle of the reception so everyone could took it.

Bellus Rose Pension Hotel - Gyeongju - Pool

8.5 Excellent (119 reviews)
S$ 83+
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Bellus Rose Pension Hotel in Gyeongju, you'll be next to a golf course, a 2-minute drive from Bomun Lake and 8 minutes from Blue One Water Park. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, express check-in, and express check-out. A train station pick-up service is provided at no charge during limited hours, and free valet parking is available onsite.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The bedroom and bathroom were large, and clean. They had everything we needed for comfort without all the extra stuff that just gets in the way. The kichenette was small but had everything needed including utensils and an electric teapot. Pool and deck looked good but we were to busy to use. Mrs. Park and her husband were as nice as they could be. They also offered free rides to and from the bus or local train stations.
Cons: The Pension and restaurant complex was on the bus route so that was convenient however, the pensions were a ways up the hill. Mrs. Parks or her husband picked us up and delivered us down the hill every time we needed within minutes of our call but we hated having to disturb them all the time. They never acted like we were bothering them at all so I guess it shouldn't be a negative.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice owners. Big and comfortable rooms, with equipment for cooking. Swimming pool. We spent two days there and were very well treated. One of our sons hurt himself when playing and the owner brought him to the best hospitals for making a few stitches, spending several hours at night with me.
Cons: It is 10 min walk from a bus station that goes either to city center or to the other tourist site. The owners were extremely helpful to bring us to the bus station and even picked us up from the KTX station Singyeongju, which is outside of the city and 30 minutes away, for a smaller fee. The best option is to have a car. If you travel by bus, you have to wait for the buses sometimes 15-30min and bus drivers are not nice at all with tourists. The central city station tourist info helped us find a car.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was excellent. A very family friendly place. Mrs. Park treats you like family. Great place. We will visit again. She also speaks English so communication was no problem.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The host are super nice. They make us feel like home, helping as much as they can to make our stay confortable. They help us with bus, pick us up at the station as many times as we asked for (even when we didn’t ask). The room was lovely, with a big terrace and confortable equipment (bed, small kitchen, etc.). The breakfast was good as well.
Cons: Nothing :)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We travel from Busan to Gyeongju by bus and the day before we receive an email from Ms Park, the owner of the Pension, asking at what time we would arrive because the transfer from the bus/train station to the Bellus rose was included. Once we were in the Pension, Ms Park explain us what we could do in the city and asked us to call her in case we had any troubles. I have to say that Ms Park is a very lovely person and made our visit to Gyeongju very delightfull.
Cons: The Pension is not in the center of the city but there is a bus that takes only 10 minutes to arrive. From the bus stop to the pension, it takes around 10 minutes walking. It was not really a problem for us. Actually, the Bellus Rose is in a national park and if you like nature, you will love this place.
6.7 Good
Pros: Ondal flooring in Korean style room. The owner is kind to provide breakfast though we have prepared ours. We thanks the owner letting us know the attractions at night in Gyeongju, we may have missed if she didn’t prompt us as we stopped over in Gyeongju for one night only.

When checkout time, she also give a ride for us to terminal. And those services are free of charge.
Cons: The bathroom is so so, bring ur own tootbrush.

7.1 Good
Cons: Low water pressure, no hot water No working wifi
5.8 Okay
Pros: Nice Korean style interior
Cons: Since it's traditional house, bit weak to prevent bugs. Also, I was in the room 2, and we can hear people in room3 clearly becuase there was internal door btw room2and3. It's cheap, but bit noisy
7.9 Good
Pros: Well, it is a traditional Korean house, so the level of comfort of the room can not be expected as in a regular hotel, not even a motel, you are going to sleep in the floor, and have a little room, but that is what the experience of sleeping in a place like that is about.
Cons: There is not an actual reception there, so a very nice person, would show up eventually and open the room for you at check in time. It is not very convenient if you expect to leave your bags before the check in, start visiting places, and check in later.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: - love the garden and the kids spent a lot of time outside - we love the attached bathroom and self service kitchen. The owner got us eggs and we loved having breakfast at the garden - we loved the ondol system (heated floor) and experience in the traditional hanok - amazing location near bus terminal and walking distance to sights

Pros: The hotel makes a good first impression, it is just a few minutes away from the Hwabaek International Convention Center, and the hotel is good for large groups. It first annoyed me that I had to book the sauna to visit the fitness room, but a visit to the spa is absolutely worth 14000 won!
Cons: I have no idea how the hotel got the 5 stars on booking.com. As far comfort and attention to details are concerned, it's more like a 3-star hotel. Given the price I had to pay, it wasn't very surprising though. Do not book the traditional Korean room unless you know what you are doing! It's not about adding some local flair to your experience. Instead, it's just about not having elementary conveniences that an average european takes for granted: a chair, a desk, and some kind of a mattress.
7.1 Good
Pros: Room size is quite big and staff is very friendly at the front desk. But that’s actually all there is to say
Cons: Mirror was dirty and hasn’t been cleaned in 2 days. There was some other people’s hair in the bathroom and sorry to say, but the breakfast buffet was not worth the 20.000 KRW. Can’t say anything about the sauna and the gym, as we didn’t use it. Bottom line, I wouldn’t book it again.
7.9 Good
Pros: friendly staff, big room, clean.
Cons: complete lack of charm, for from everything you want to see in Gyeongju- but that is true for all of these major hotels in this area.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was excellent. The location of the hotel is okay.
Cons: Shower curtain is too short to protect the dry area in the bath from the wet area. And the shower curtain is easily flowing into the shower booth because the pressure of the inside of the shower booth is lower than that of outside.

Cons: People drunk outside late at night on a weekday

Pros: Clean
Cons: Price
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel just about few walks to Bomun Hanwoo- a great Korean barbeque - really worth to try!
Cons: The razor cost only 1,000 KW, but guest needs to buy at vending machine. I guess it’s too cheap within the hotel cost that it should be delivered for free. The wine bottle cost 44,000 KW but taste under medium.

Gyeongju Old Times Pension - Gyeongju - Bedroom

9.0 Excellent (324 reviews)
S$ 75+
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Aside from the issue with the check out (see what we did not like) a very nice and cozy appartment.
Cons: Landlords were overly strikt regarding check out. Check out was set for 11am and they came by at 10:45 and again 10:55 to remind us that check out is at 11am. That is ridiculous! :-)
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We loved the hosts and their hospitality. Yejeon Pension felt like a home and was an unforgettable experience for our adventure around Korea. The breakfasts were awesome, and the host would drive you to the bus station.
Cons: The location of Yejeon is outside the main part of the city. It is a pension, so it has more of an apartment feel rather than a hotel stay.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Our host was very friendly and helpful, he drove us to the bus stop as the pension is a bit far from everything. The pension itself is cosy, small and the room we got was big with a kitchen and terasse included.
Cons: It's far away from everything, so a car is really recommended. If like us you don't have one and came by train or bus, then it's a bit harder to visit the region.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The owner could speak English better than I expected and was very accomodating, he even offered us to take us to the bus stop since we didn't have a rented car.
Cons: Amount of dishes available in the kitchen (too little)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very friendly, flexible and accommodating. Room is complete with facilities. You can even have barbeque. Like a cabin/glamping experience.
Cons: Location was ok but inaccessible to public transport. But atleast it has good parking. But if you want a quiet, intimate and peaceful evening this is the best place
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner of the pension came to pick us up at the train station, which was really nice. The location of the pension is really nice, surrounded by mountains. We didn't have a car, so the owner dropped us of at the busstop and picked us up there when we needed it. It is easier if you have a car, but this way was fine too. We wanted to get out of the busy cities and for this purpose this location was great. The room was nice and the breakfast was good too.
Cons: It is quite far from the city, but we chose this specifically so for us it was ok.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a special cooked American breakfast. Location is a little ways out, but short drive away from some attractions and about 15 minutes away from historic area. Nice quiet, country location. The owner was so helpful. He drove to find us, when we got lost, only 5 minutes away.
Cons: We were happy with the apartment. No complaints.

Pros: The breakfast is reasonable for the amount you have paid for. The location is good but there are very limited restaurants around if you don't like taking McDonald's.

Cons: Bathroom was too slippery. No place to put items in shower. No hooks to hang towels. Nothing to hold onto in shower. One side of bed lacked nightstand. Confusing light switches. Just 2 small pillows on a huge king size bed which needed at least 4 if not more given the small size.

S$ 83+
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Bellus Rose Pension Hotel in Gyeongju, you'll be next to a golf course, a 2-minute drive from Bomun Lake and 8 minutes from Blue One Water Park. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, express check-in, and express check-out. A train station pick-up service is provided at no charge during limited hours, and free valet parking is available onsite.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The bedroom and bathroom were large, and clean. They had everything we needed for comfort without all the extra stuff that just gets in the way. The kichenette was small but had everything needed including utensils and an electric teapot. Pool and deck looked good but we were to busy to use. Mrs. Park and her husband were as nice as they could be. They also offered free rides to and from the bus or local train stations.
Cons: The Pension and restaurant complex was on the bus route so that was convenient however, the pensions were a ways up the hill. Mrs. Parks or her husband picked us up and delivered us down the hill every time we needed within minutes of our call but we hated having to disturb them all the time. They never acted like we were bothering them at all so I guess it shouldn't be a negative.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice owners. Big and comfortable rooms, with equipment for cooking. Swimming pool. We spent two days there and were very well treated. One of our sons hurt himself when playing and the owner brought him to the best hospitals for making a few stitches, spending several hours at night with me.
Cons: It is 10 min walk from a bus station that goes either to city center or to the other tourist site. The owners were extremely helpful to bring us to the bus station and even picked us up from the KTX station Singyeongju, which is outside of the city and 30 minutes away, for a smaller fee. The best option is to have a car. If you travel by bus, you have to wait for the buses sometimes 15-30min and bus drivers are not nice at all with tourists. The central city station tourist info helped us find a car.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was excellent. A very family friendly place. Mrs. Park treats you like family. Great place. We will visit again. She also speaks English so communication was no problem.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The host are super nice. They make us feel like home, helping as much as they can to make our stay confortable. They help us with bus, pick us up at the station as many times as we asked for (even when we didn’t ask). The room was lovely, with a big terrace and confortable equipment (bed, small kitchen, etc.). The breakfast was good as well.
Cons: Nothing :)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We travel from Busan to Gyeongju by bus and the day before we receive an email from Ms Park, the owner of the Pension, asking at what time we would arrive because the transfer from the bus/train station to the Bellus rose was included. Once we were in the Pension, Ms Park explain us what we could do in the city and asked us to call her in case we had any troubles. I have to say that Ms Park is a very lovely person and made our visit to Gyeongju very delightfull.
Cons: The Pension is not in the center of the city but there is a bus that takes only 10 minutes to arrive. From the bus stop to the pension, it takes around 10 minutes walking. It was not really a problem for us. Actually, the Bellus Rose is in a national park and if you like nature, you will love this place.
6.7 Good
Pros: Ondal flooring in Korean style room. The owner is kind to provide breakfast though we have prepared ours. We thanks the owner letting us know the attractions at night in Gyeongju, we may have missed if she didn’t prompt us as we stopped over in Gyeongju for one night only.
Cons: Nil

When checkout time, she also give a ride for us to terminal. And those services are free of charge.
Cons: The bathroom is so so, bring ur own tootbrush.
