Reviewed May 6, 2014

Clean and good, however, still have a way to go for the "BEST" As you may know by the brand, Hilton, it fits well. However, I felt some lacks in delicate services like baby bed setting and finding the direection, etc.

We stayed four nights at the Hilton. The hotel itself was lovely, nice big rooms free wi-fi really comfy bed. Staff was very helpful and friendly. There are plenty of coffee shops near by and an amazing Korean restaurant opposite the hotel. It's easy enough to get taxis to where you want to go and the buses run regularly. But you do need to rely on buses and taxis to get around.

No need to comment. Just check and stay in. The best service and Hotel in Gyeong-ju, Strongly recommend. When you prepare a travel in this prefacture, Hilton in Gyeoung-ju makes your trip be wonderful memories. Also, services(including, room and parking lot) and staffs' attitude are enough to make you feel comfortable. When you decide to stay in Korea, I recommend below : Seoul : Grand - Hayatt Busan : Westin Chosun Gyeoung-ju : Hilton

Because Gyeongju is a smaller city, we did not expect luxury accommodations and we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel which is quite large and offers a wide range is services and restaurants. It is located right on the lake and we had a room with a lake view during cherry blossom season so it was quite spectacular. The service was excellent but be fore warned that nothing in this hotel is inexpensive. There are multiple restaurants and the food is adequate but pricey. We ate at the Mediterranean restaurant and my fish was not fresh and my husbands meal was barely edible. We shared an appetizer, each had A main course and one alcoholic drink and our bill was the equivalent of $150 US. We would not have minded the cost if the food was good. The next night we ate at the Chinese restaurant and it was equally poor. The breakfast was good but I would recommend eating outside of the hotel for dinner.
The grounds of the hotel were lovely and a nice place to stroll during the day or evening.
This is probably the most luxurious hotel in the area.

I stayed at Gyeongju Hilton during early April, 2014. The whole city was in full bloom of sakura, and there are lots of people in the hotel. The faciliities and services are good enough, but it was so noisey for the children yelling and crying everywhere. Some kids even dashed thru the lobby with their kick-board and no one tried to stop or say anything to deter them. I had trouble to have a talk with my client in the lounge for the noises all around the place. It seems that hotel management team should take care of that kind of disturbance in the public area of the hhotel.

very comfortable and very clean.... Close to many traditional areas. My family really enjoyed the stay of kyoung-ju. However, breakfast menu is not recommended at hotel. There are many restrautants around hotel, which si more better than hotel restraunt.

This is quite a nice hotel, and has some really well-appointed and spacious rooms for the price, with nice big windows overlooking lovely park and lake below. The breakfast buffet has a nice mix of Asian and Western foods, so there's plenty of options for everyone.

One thing to note is that as of our stay last week (March 2014) there is still construction closing the fitness center, pool and spa. There is a fitness center and spa available at a nearby hotel for a fee.

Another thing to note is that this hotel is a decent distance away from the main part of Gyeongju and many of the historic sites, so if you don't have a car you'll need to plan on some 12-15K won taxi rides (each way) to town -- not a big deal, but good to know. If you are into biking, it would be a nice alternative, as there are lots of nice cycling paths all around the area.
