The host is very eager to help you, although her english is not very good. We arrive late at night and found the other guest are sleeping. It is a bit embarrassing. It is not suitable if you come from far places or you enjoy nightlife. The room is clean and stylish. You can have interaction with other guest as... More

We only stayed for 2 nights in the cold winter, low season for the city. Pak was caring and always helpful! She tried her very best to call up restaurants, jimjiabang and taxi for us all the time and write down important information on paper for us to get around. Even though we went unprepared, she gave us very good... More

Just like staying at a relatives house! Really warm welcome into a family home! Living area and room were homely, comfortable and spacious. A Union flag appeared to join the South Korean flag on the coffee table soon after checking in :) Great information sheets provided to the main places you'd want to visit - much more useful than the...

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
