You can find it everywhere old and somewhat shabby facilities and furnitures rather than hotels managed from big franchise, but they renovated bathroom(bathroom only, I guess several years before) and I can feel that they try to manage the rooms clean. Its location is besides the Lake Bomun, and you can have a walk lake-side or rent a bicycle.

We checked in on June 19, 2024. At that time one of the room's air conditioner was out of order. We ask them to fix it, but no one fix it so they couldn't sleep. We are so sorry.

The rooms are really old and not well lid. The light bulb are very dim and the mattress is so cheap one. The room is small. The location is Ok since it is located near the lake so You can go for a walk .

Gyeongju is a must see place in South Korea where the history of this beautiful land surfaces and materializes in many cultural heritage sites. The lake next to town is one of the country's most popular water sport destinations, it even has a amusement park at its shores. A place to stay can be the Commodore hotel, it is just... More

This is a nice hotel with a friendly staff. Rooms were clean and we had a nice view of the lake. I dislike having to put the door key in the slot to turn on the lights but that seems to be common in korea. it's very annoying since if you have to get up at night you turn on... More

We checked into this hotel on our first night in Busan. Looking for switches to brighten the room ended up in vain. We have to open our big luggage on the desk with the table lamp so that we could find the things we needed. There were three single beds provided for the two of us. The room looked old... More

The rooms are OLD and absolutely need renovation. The restaurant is Ordinary, and staff COLD. The Only Good thing about the hotel is the View of the Bomun lake, which is very nice. But the windows cannot be opened to enjoy the beautiful autumn breeze.

The first half of July is clearly a low season for this hotel and probably this whole resort area. The outdoor swimming pool was empty (they started to fill it for the season while we were there), the bar had nobody in it whenever we passed (except for 2 entertainers valiently battling through a set to an empty room), and...

We stayed in this hotel for one night for a brief stay in Gyeongju. The hotel is situated by a lake where a number of the hotels seem to be rather than in the actually town itself. This isn't too much trouble as frequent buses depart from just outside. The hotel is quite dated although it was fine for our... More
