I recently stayed at this hotel for one night during a weekend trip. I am a Hilton Honors member, but have no status in the program. Lobby / Check-in.

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! It's a 30 minute taxi ride from the KTX station (about 30,000krw) and a 15-20 minute... More

Excellent room that was spacious and recently updated. Very busy place with families because of the nearby amusement park but the rooms were quiet so it did not affect our stay. Good breakfast buffet and located directly on the lake that offers a walking path of about 6 km, though it is quite commercial. Staff struggles with English and there... More

It seems that it is newly renovated. The room and facilities are clean and well organized. The Staff in the hotel are friendly. The location is good too as it is in the Bomoon tourist area. It's worthy to stay.
