As a Hilton Gold member we really appreciated the lovely complimentary breakfast every morning. Incredible assortment of foods for breakfast--a full buffet that surpassed any USA Hilton Gold Club breakfast! We stayed 3 nights using Hilton Honors points--a real value here at only 30,000 points per night. We found the hotel staff to be very thoughtful and helpful. Upon arrival they realized I was checking in with my two 20 year daughters so they moved us to a room with 3 twin beds. Didn't realize they had that type of room available. Was very nice. While it is difficult to get to all the historic sites in Gyeongju without a car, the staff told us how to use the public bus system. It was really quite easy to get to the main downtown area, Observatory, and Gyeongju museum on Bus 700 across the street. And easy to get outside of town, to the temple site using the Bus 11 next to the hotel. Easy to get to and from the High Speed KRT rail station using the city bus 700 too. While it seemed most guest hire taxis we like to explore areas like the locals do and Gyeongju bus system makes fairly simple loops that stop right in front of the Hilton. One of our favorite restaurants in all of Korea is the Beef Barbecue right across the street from the Hilton. Wonderful food and always busy with locals--a good sign of quality. Everyone takes off their shoes, sits on floor and grills the meat you select from the butcher counter--along with wonderful fresh vegetables. Gyeongju really is a city-wide museum with historical and cultural sites all around town. Hope to come back in a warmer season to explore the temples and sites that are further out of town and involve hiking.
