“Very good outside, horrible inside”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2006

I would not giveit a 1 point rating if this hotel were not marked as "luxury" hotel. This hotel looks pretty good outside, and the lobby is also bright enough, HOWEVER (a big however), the guest rooms of this hotel are horrible! It's not better than most motels I've lived.

Tiny room, decorations are VERY old, filty carpet, old beddings, nothing good worth mentioning.

The restaurants and lobby inside the hotels are pretty good though.

We spent one night at the Kolon Hotel and had a wonderful time. The hot spring/ tub area of the hotel was nice as was the staff. The rooms were okay but kind of worn, especially the bathroom.
It is convenient to the temple and buddah area but far from the other attractions of Kyongju- good views from the hotel windows!

By the way- bring your own shampoo/ conditioner- as it is not provided.
