My husband has had more experience staying in traditional places, but this was my first. And it was a great experience! I loved staying here. The owners, who live on the premises, were very welcoming and friendly. They have 2 dogs and my husband, who is not keen about dogs, was a little nervous but after introducing ourselves to them, the dogs accepted us. It is a traditional Koren house with traditional sleeping arrangements - you sleep on the floor on thin mattresses. We are middle-aged and so are getting a little stiff, but it was easy to get used to and ended up being comfortable. Basic bathroom facilities at the back of the room with no towels provided - but available on request. There is a common room with free breakfast and WiFi. The location is wonderful - easy walking distance to many archaeological sites of the Silla kingdom. Opposite a tumuli park and easy walking distance to the town. We had a wonderful 2 meals at a traditional Korean BBQ - opposite to the historic sites, just turn left at the end of the street. Stay here if you are visiting Gyeongju - quiet and relaxed - highly recommended!
