Staying here is wonderful and peaceful - the best place I have stayed at in Korea. Located in the wonderful Gyeongju national park and the only sounds I can hear when walking in the forest are the birds and the sounds of silence. I am staying here for two nights in the Orange apartment. My accommodation is a lovely bright... More

Sorry it took me so long to write this review. My family and I stayed at Gyeongju JY Pension for 3 nights in April 2014. We dropped them an email (in English) and received prompt replies (in English). When we arrived in Gyeongju by bus (we came from Busan), Mr Moon was kind enough to pick us up at the... More

This place is lovely though a bit hard to find if you don't read Korean although if you follow the signs with a flower, you will get there. Beautiful setting in the mountains, breakfast and cappuccino available. The rooms all have a kitchen and picnic table, lots of bbqs available. Would be a great place for a group retreat.

Our host was very nice, and he made sure we were taken care of the whole way (including before we even arrived). The free breakfast and espresso made coffee was nice, which I enjoyed while sitting on my balcony looking out into nature. One thing that was bad was that there was a leak in the kitchen that caused a... More

The place is located in a very quiet and pretty little valley 30 minutes’ drive from Gyeongju, you need a GPS to find the place without losing too much time… we were really wondering where we were going… but once we got there we had a great time. The room was big, we could fit the whole family and there... More

A nice place in the country surrounded by forest. We drove and it is a good location from which to tour different locations. Make sure you know how to get there as it is off the main road and will require driving down a single lane. We enjoyed that it was in the country and very relaxed. Mr. Moon and... More

Loved our stay here even though finding the place with the car (even with GPS) was hard. Amazing owner and area! The bad thing was that the wifi reception in the separate building was very bad. Also the room was quite cold when we got there. If you have a car this is the place for you in Gyeoungju!

I stayed in this pension for 3 nights. I went with the intention to relax from my long term travels (so no sightseeing) and it was perfect for that. The hilly and natural scenery being outside of the city was beautiful. The place was clean and well decorated. Since it is well outside of the city, Mr. Moon will probably... More

6 of us stayed at JY Pension for 1 night (p/s: that's not enough) in 2 rooms. The rooms are so cozy and comfortable. When we arrived on the first day, Mr. Moon purposely picked our luggage at the bus station (the pension is about 40-50 minutes from the pension to town area). After we have sightseeing, he came and... More
