My room is #915 and it is in old style, but it is spacious and clean. King size bed is firm and comfortable. Bathroom is large and clean. No basic toiletry however, provides lotion, shower cap and comb, even a sewing pack. There are purchasable tooth brush and tooth paste in the room. There is a hair dryer, small fridge... More

Decors look like relics from the 80s. The primary purpose of this hotel seems to be for corporate team building retreats than a tourism. But can't beat the walking distance to Bulguksa.

The Good - The location is excellent and is within walking distance of Bulguksa Temple and the Grotto. Additionally, the area is very peaceful and calm and a nice area to go hiking and exploring. The Bad - The rooms are not up to par for a place that bills itself as an international resort. The rooms are dated, and... More

This hotel is the closest hotel to the major temple and that is its major attraction. You can walk to the hotel in 10 minutes. That said, it is near nothing else other than the Grotto. The lobby was pleasant and there was delicious coffee and sweets and friendly staff. But, the rooms were in dreadful need of maintenance -... More

My family & I were booked into this hotel as part of the Hallyu Dream Concert experience.We had been to Gyeongju 2 times previous, so only visited the Expo site and Anapji Ponds on this visit. We travelled there by bus from Seoul and arrived late, but discovered that the room offered less than a good Motel. Beds were OK,... More

I stayed at Gyeongju Kolon hotel for 3 days in September 2011, while visiting Gyeongju, Korea. It was a rather hard decision for me to choose a hotel in Gyeongju. I read the reviews and was going back and forth between the Hilton, the Hyundai and the Kolon. Though I was leaning towards the first two because of the reviews... More

This place seems to market itself as a premium hotel, and it keeps up appearances on the outside, but the room was really disappointing. It was very much in need of renovations and looked a bit shabby. It was the only hotel we stayed at in Korea that didn't have any free bottled water, and there were also no free... More

Considering that the hotels around cost more than double, we decided to stay in this 100USD option. It was fine for one night, the lobby is busy and there are restaurants etc, but the rooms are very old and almost no toiletries are provided, not even complimentary water or shower gel. I think this is poor. The buffet in the... More
