This is a nicely appointed hotel staffed with friendly staff. Gyeongju is a major attraction for Korean families (sort of like the Orlando of Korea in my estimation) but less so for English speaking folks and as such you won't necessarily find as many English speakers as you would at the Hilton in Seoul. We still managed just fine. We... More

Stayed here just for one night. It was priced right and the location is in the middle of the two tourist areas you want to visit. It's about 15 minutes from either spot and buses (#11 and #700) stop right outside the hotel so you can travel there. I am a Hilton Diamond member so I was upgraded to a... More

It was all in all a nice stay. However, there are a few minor details that might be a focal point for the manager of this hotel. I admit that it is smaller details. I stayed at the hotel 7 and 8 September 2016. The first day I was received a call from the front desk who kindly told me... More

Double Thumbs down! Unclear communication from your concierge manager, caused more frustration than settling matters. Forget this place if you're seeking hospitality services on group booking, they obviously can't manage

We had a nice enjoyable stay at this fine hotel during our recent visit to S. Korea this summer. It seemed obvious to us that the hotel is not new, but kept well with nice collection of contemporary paintings in the lobby. Check in was efficient. The gentleman who checked us in was very friendly and extremely considerate about us... More

Disappointing to find there is a per entry charge (approximately US$30 for entry to the pool area). Not advised on booking, check-in or in the in room information. Concierge not well educated on local activities

Located with the other higher end resort hotels around the lake the Hilton Gyeongju can only be described as a fantastic resort hotel. Rooms are fairly standard high end Hilton, but with useable balconies which is an added bonus, and beds which were perfect!
