This guest house's location is brilliant for seeing the sites of the historic district. Tumuli Park can be seen from the front door and Anapji Pond and Cheomseongdae Observatory Tower are a 10 minute walk at most. You can catch a bus to many other attractions that are further out of the city from the main road that's within a... More

Run by a friendly couple, this is a basic guesthouse without much amenities. But it is an old traditional home with a lot of character and charm. It is very conveniently located: about 10 min walk from the bus terminals or train stations. What I like is that it is just 5 minute walk to the Cheomsangdae park where I... More

The Sa Rang Chae is a lovely guesthouse in a traditional Korean courtyard building. My room was spotless & the courtyard is charming - so pleasant that it's tempting to spend the day there! The owners are very friendly & helpful (more helpful on how to get around than the tourist info office.). Travellers who can sleep on anything, or... More

This is a traditional guesthouse run by a family, so don't expect hotel-style amenities. Do expect warm, friendly people, simple, clean rooms with sleeping mats, plentiful bedding and toasty underfloor heating, a welcoming common area and beautiful surroundings. Our shoes were even put under cover for us when it rained...very personal touches. The restaurant just down the street from the... More

I had a wonderful stay here, but as many reviewers have pointed it out, this place is not for comfort and it actaully was the most "backpacky" place I've ever stayed. Rooms are quite small and not very clean. BUT!!! There's something inexplicably charming about this place. And I will never be able to forget my early morning walk to... More

I just spent 4 nights at Saranchae - and loved it. The room was small, but you don't need much space with the beautiful courtyard, where most guests relaxed and chatted with each other, or just sat to read or eat. We had a room with the traditional bedding, which was fun and I slept surprisingly well on it. The... More

If you NEED 5* comforts then this may not be the place for you! But for everyone else, you have to go here. It is beautiful. After weeks in Seoul, Tokyo, Busan and many other big cities Gyeongju was a delight, and the tranquility of waking up in Sa Rang Chae, having a coffee in the early morning sunlight, chatting... More

We have been here just for 3 nights, but this guesthout is the best lodging option for travelling in Gyeongju with a company of friends. It's not far from express bus terminal and close to Tumuli park and Anapchi pound. The owners were very friendly, also the price is really cheap. If you want to experience living in a traditional...
