I stayed at this hotel with my family for one night during a visit to Gyeongju, a well-known historic city in Korea. We were assigned to a 'triple' room with three beds. Overall, the stay was better than I expected. The hotel is a bit outdated: the carpet on the corridor was slightly smelly, but the room was quite okay.... More

We stayed here as part of a tour. Our room turned out to be somewhat large compared to what's standard in Korea, which was good as we had 3 adults in the room. However, like many tourist hotels this one is in need of some refurbishing, especially in the bath area. Otherwise, it is in a good location for seeing... More

You pick this hotel because it is walking distance from the central attraction "Bulguksa" temple and a local bus away from Sukgulam. From train station, you can grab a taxi to here...walk to see the temple and take bus to the top of the mountain to see the sights...then spend a night, take a bus from nearby street to the... More

We were quite shocked by the poor state of the room and especially the bathroom which was so tired and outdated. Also, the acoustic performance of the walls was poor and there was little separation from noise of the nocturnal activities of our neighbours. Otherwise, the hotel is better, being well positioned for local tourist attractions and having helpful staff.... More

An elegant, luxurious hotel, but which has seen better days. Reserving in advance via “booking.com”, we got an excellent price for a weekend rate, and were very satisfied with our room (having asked to change from the first two shown to us… but the reception staff were very helpful) … the photos show how big and comfortable it was, and...

One night in a twin room. For a place that has such huge grounds and facilities like a golf course, the interior really lets it down. Doesnt look like it has been updated since it was first built and its dark wood and dark interiors with duvets that I think my grandmother used to have, make it feel a bit... More

Built in 1978, it showed its age in our very large room. It's a long way from both train stations and we were not told about a courtesy bus. We saw one on our second day and asked about it and was told it leaves at 9am. The next day we were catching a train to Seoul at 9:57 and... More

The thing I liked best about the hotel was the spring baths 목욕탕 located on the wing. Nothing grand or big, but comfortable. The hotel has a nice lobby with restaurants, gift shops, and a karaoke room. Also within the grounds is a golf course. The room was plain but clean and comfortable. It has a TV and a small... More

We stayed at the Kolon Hotel and found it clean, comfortable and attractive. The grounds and the view from our hotel room were terrific. We also enjoyed the plentiful Sunday breakfast brunch. A convenient shuttle took us from the train station to and from the hotel. We were very happy with the Kolon for its good value, cleanliness and attractiveness,... More
