Tavo House offers you a good example of Korean stay. The host is excellent (and a good cook!). They can provide you useful information for visits and hikes in the area. The house is in a nice location, conveniently positioned 10 minutes from the central Post Office where most bus lines stops. The house includes several double rooms with shared... More

I planned just one night in Gyeongju but almost wished I could stay longer b/c Mr. Gun Hee Lee and his wife were so kind. Of all the Korean hotels I booked that I emailed to ask for hotel directions, Mr. Lee was the only one to respond. It was actually quite simple. If you're taking the KTX into Singyeongju... More

The owner had been very helpful and I have to give him two thumbs up for his service. He had brought us with his car around the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in Feb 2013 with my boyfriend. The host, Gun Hee and his family, were extremely nice and friendly to us. Plus, Grandma was very cute and offered us little yoghurt drinks she had just bought from outside. Breakfast was different everyday, and showed us traditional Korean breakfasts. They were tasty too :) The house... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during our trip to Gyeongju in February 2012. While the weather was bitter cold, our stay at Tavo House was full of warm surroundings and friendly company. Kanye showed us around the city, took us to a traditional Korean "pub" and helped us learn our first words and phrases in Korean.... More

I have a little mixed experience with this place. From one point of view, Gun Hee family was extremely friendly, they helped with local places and many suggestions, we were served a fairly eloborate traditional breakfast which the landlady cooked for at least a couple of hours, etc. This was all really great. However, I was misled by the booking.com... More

We cycled around the city and saw the Gyeongju attractions as well. Kanye is a great host and ever willing to help - provide information, help you order pizza in korean and lend you... More
