“Geyongju Hilton Hotel”

Excellent Hotel - Great Location - Excellent People and Service. Would recommend 100% - Great value for the money. Great experience with all staff from bell hops to front desk to concierge. They are all willing to help and go way out of their way to assist with any things that you may require. Location is great near the KTX station and downtown a short distance away. Excellent landscape in the area with the Bomun lake and related activities walking distance away.

I stayed in 경주 with my father during Autumn. The area was quiet and many shops weren't open. Our room faced the mountains and had great views of the vibrant red, orange and yellow trees covering the mountains. We were lucky to stay on a newly renovated floor, which had nicely furnished rooms.

Personally, staying at this hotel restricted how much of the local culture we could have been involved in. One night we planned to have dinner at a restaurant in the hotel. The meals were ridiculously overpriced considering South Korea's exchange rate, so we decided to eat elsewhere. We eventually found a family owned restaurant nearby, and received one of the best traditional meals I had eaten on the trip for less than 5000 Won ($5). Starbucks was another food outlet nearby and sold great coffees for a quarter the price of the Hilton.

This hotel was good quality, but over priced considering other places available in the town.

We had reservations about the cost of the Hilton at Gyeongju but it was one of the few hotels that didn't have any bad reviews. On arrival we realised we'd made a good choice - you certainly get value for your money at this beautiful hotel with extremely polite and courteous service. Restaurants provide wonderful service and excellent food - world class choice.

The hotel has spacious public rooms all with beautiful views of well-kept gardens and sculptures. The staff aimed to please. We enjoyed two wonderful dinners at the hotel's De Vinci Restaurant, and loved our lake view room. For sightseeing, since the UNESCO heritage sites are far apart and not close to the hotel, it's best to book a tour or hire a car.

I was there for a four days conference. Located very close to an amusement park and a lake with many Korean resturants around, I think the location was ok. However, it was about 30 minutes away from down town and part of the lake close to the hotel was dry and bushy. The hotel and room interior was luxirious but a little less than other Hilton hotels I have stayed. On cleaniness, they got it all right. The bathroom was very clean. The bath tub was big enough for a 6 feet tall guy and looked very new. The breakfast was delicious but the menu was the same for the three mornings I was there. There was strong wireless internet network anywhere within the hotel. Generally, it was an enjoyable stay.

- Newly renovated rooms are clean and adequate to the qualities we expect from Hilton hotels.

- You can walk to Starbucks for morning coffee and I'm sure that you'll be delighted. Localized with Korean style.

- They charge for indoor swimming pool. What a shame!

Thank you for staying at the Hilton Gyeongju

It is our sincere goal to ensure that our guests receive the highest standard of hospitality and service. We are constantly looking for ways in which we can improve this.

There is no fixed Hilton policy for the use of pool. Complimentary use of the pool will be subject to the each hotel's policy. For oue hotel, we set the very competitive room rate excluding additional facilities charges as our competitors are doing in this area. So guests who want to use the pool should pay to extra charges. But Hilton Hhonors Gold member or above could use the pool free of charge.

We once agagin thank you for bringing the above points to our attention. And we look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you to the Hilton Gyeongju.

Sincerly,

SunHee Jeon
Marketing Coordinator

I'm a gold member and I booked a lakeside view room with points at hhonors.com. Arrived around 6pm and the frontdesk clerk informed me my room was upgraded to the lakeside view which I already booked for. Too tired from driving so didn't bother to complain at the time. Not getting an upgrade is fine with a proper explanation since they are not required to upgrade me, but hearing that my room was upgraded to the room that I booked for was quite disappoointing experience.
