Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, express check-in, and express check-out. A train station pick-up service is provided at no charge during limited hours, and free valet parking is available onsite.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The bedroom and bathroom were large, and clean. They had everything we needed for comfort without all the extra stuff that just gets in the way. The kichenette was small but had everything needed including utensils and an electric teapot. Pool and deck looked good but we were to busy to use. Mrs. Park and her husband were as nice as they could be. They also offered free rides to and from the bus or local train stations.
Cons: The Pension and restaurant complex was on the bus route so that was convenient however, the pensions were a ways up the hill. Mrs. Parks or her husband picked us up and delivered us down the hill every time we needed within minutes of our call but we hated having to disturb them all the time. They never acted like we were bothering them at all so I guess it shouldn't be a negative.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice owners. Big and comfortable rooms, with equipment for cooking. Swimming pool. We spent two days there and were very well treated. One of our sons hurt himself when playing and the owner brought him to the best hospitals for making a few stitches, spending several hours at night with me.
Cons: It is 10 min walk from a bus station that goes either to city center or to the other tourist site. The owners were extremely helpful to bring us to the bus station and even picked us up from the KTX station Singyeongju, which is outside of the city and 30 minutes away, for a smaller fee. The best option is to have a car. If you travel by bus, you have to wait for the buses sometimes 15-30min and bus drivers are not nice at all with tourists. The central city station tourist info helped us find a car.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was excellent. A very family friendly place. Mrs. Park treats you like family. Great place. We will visit again. She also speaks English so communication was no problem.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The host are super nice. They make us feel like home, helping as much as they can to make our stay confortable. They help us with bus, pick us up at the station as many times as we asked for (even when we didn’t ask). The room was lovely, with a big terrace and confortable equipment (bed, small kitchen, etc.). The breakfast was good as well.
Cons: Nothing :)
9,6 Excellent
Pros: We travel from Busan to Gyeongju by bus and the day before we receive an email from Ms Park, the owner of the Pension, asking at what time we would arrive because the transfer from the bus/train station to the Bellus rose was included. Once we were in the Pension, Ms Park explain us what we could do in the city and asked us to call her in case we had any troubles. I have to say that Ms Park is a very lovely person and made our visit to Gyeongju very delightfull.
Cons: The Pension is not in the center of the city but there is a bus that takes only 10 minutes to arrive. From the bus stop to the pension, it takes around 10 minutes walking. It was not really a problem for us. Actually, the Bellus Rose is in a national park and if you like nature, you will love this place.
6,7 Good
Pros: Ondal flooring in Korean style room. The owner is kind to provide breakfast though we have prepared ours. We thanks the owner letting us know the attractions at night in Gyeongju, we may have missed if she didn’t prompt us as we stopped over in Gyeongju for one night only.

7,1 Good
Cons: Low water pressure, no hot water No working wifi
5,8 Okay
Pros: Nice Korean style interior
Cons: Since it's traditional house, bit weak to prevent bugs. Also, I was in the room 2, and we can hear people in room3 clearly becuase there was internal door btw room2and3. It's cheap, but bit noisy
7,9 Good
Pros: Well, it is a traditional Korean house, so the level of comfort of the room can not be expected as in a regular hotel, not even a motel, you are going to sleep in the floor, and have a little room, but that is what the experience of sleeping in a place like that is about.
Cons: There is not an actual reception there, so a very nice person, would show up eventually and open the room for you at check in time. It is not very convenient if you expect to leave your bags before the check in, start visiting places, and check in later.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: - love the garden and the kids spent a lot of time outside - we love the attached bathroom and self service kitchen. The owner got us eggs and we loved having breakfast at the garden - we loved the ondol system (heated floor) and experience in the traditional hanok - amazing location near bus terminal and walking distance to sights

8,0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was excellent. The location of the hotel is okay.

9,6 Excellent
Pros: Clean
Cons: Price
8,0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel just about few walks to Bomun Hanwoo- a great Korean barbeque - really worth to try!
Cons: The razor cost only 1,000 KW, but guest needs to buy at vending machine. I guess it’s too cheap within the hotel cost that it should be delivered for free. The wine bottle cost 44,000 KW but taste under medium.

6,7 Good
Pros: I stayed here as it was close to the conference centre, HICO. Room and toilet was clean and decent size but hotel is run down - carpets in corridors were old with large stains
Cons: No bath towels. Only hand towels were provided. WiFi was not the best. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room or in the hotel. No breakfast provided in the hotel. No wardrobe to put clothes, no safe. Just a few hangers and pegs for clothes. I wouldn’t stay here or recommend this hotel.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Price, staff
Cons: Good value, nice stay
4,6 Okay
Pros: We liked the location. A lot of buses that connected you to different attractions was brilliant. The hotel staff let us drop off our luggage at the hotel after check out so we could sightsee.
Cons: When we arrived the first lady at the front desk was trying to argue with my friend regarding the price. She was asking why was it so cheap? We had the booking.com to prove I would be paying the Korean won equivalent of £25. She was not happy. This was really awkward as we never set the price. The air conditioner not powerful. I couldn’t sleep with the heat. We only had small towels that would only fit a baby. When we called for actual human size bath towels the guy at the front desk was arguing with my friend. They kind sent up 4 bath towels but only because my friend wouldn’t give up.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Short walking distance to a bunch of attractions. Need a car to visit the shrine and grotto.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Position close to the center. Staff nice and available.

3,0 Mediocre
Pros: Location
Cons: Cigaret smell was so bad. It made us cough so bad. Especially one of us could not breath sometimes. Finally we had to ask the hotel to chage our room on different floor.
3,3 Mediocre
Pros: Near the central market (Gyeongju Joong Ang market) . Plenty of local food and restraunts open very early. Only 4000 won taxi ride to the museum.
Cons: Very run down motel in a run down part of town. Sound proofing is non existent. Can hear pedestrian on the road outside talking as they walk past the property. Woke up at 2am by people arguing outside on the road. Room had stale odor. Can feel the springs in the mattress. Very uncomfortable.
7,9 Good
Pros: I had a traditional floor bed instead of a giant bed and it was waaaay more comfortable. Its podunt, but the staff are really kind and helpful. On your map, look up Cafe Ohai (카페 오하이). I don't know the street names, but this area had a lot of nice restaurants and little stores.
Cons: We didn't hang around the hotel--not much night life in Gyeonju compared to bigger cities. So we did a lot of walking to get anywhere.
7,1 Good
Pros: Good bed, good location in downtown Gyeongju, staff persons with a solving-the-problem mindset, very reasonably priced, good wi-fi, TV with a wide range of channels
Cons: Room not that clean (mosquitoes), very light breakfast served in front of the reception
6,3 Good
Pros: Good location, wifi, television (easy to use with a lot of sports channels)
Cons: Breakfast, comfort of the bed, quite expensive for this standard
7,9 Good
Pros: Relatively large room and well set bathroom. Good bed. Convenient position to bus station
Cons: It is a love motel, that means nearly no reception and no usual services for tourist. Nothing wrong with that, but perhaps worth mentioning in the hotel presentation in the website.
7,4 Good
Pros: +++ Free portable WiFi hotspot (this is an amazing perk) + Free coffee + Free self-service laundry + Free bottled water and Korean juices + Friendly staff + Good location - several minutes walking from Express Bus Terminal
Cons: --- Sono Hotel is not a hotel - it is a motel - Beds were very thin - Staff spoke little to no English
5,4 Okay
Pros: The staff at the front desk were very helpful with all questions about Gyeongju and the transportation methods around the city. The hotel is fairly close to the intercity bus station and there were plenty of good restaurants within distance and an excellent food market that thrives at nighttime just a minute or so walk away.
Cons: The initial appearance of the hotel was shocking, as in the hallways always smelled overwhelming with smoke, the carpeting was heavily stained, and the elevator was very small and old. The room was quaint and had everything needed and the staff provided a complimentary toiletry bag upon check-in and are overall very helpful. However, if you take a taxi to return back to the hotel from any of the popular tourist destinations, be careful to state that the accomodation is 'Sono Motel,' NOT hotel. The 'show address in local language' feature provided by Booking was confusing to all of the taxi drivers we encountered and they assuredly corrected us by saying it is a motel and could not find a 'Sono Hotel' in their systems or to their recollection.

Yj Pension - Gyeongju - Bedroom
1
9,0 Excellent (324 reviews)
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Aside from the issue with the check out (see what we did not like) a very nice and cozy appartment.
Cons: Landlords were overly strikt regarding check out. Check out was set for 11am and they came by at 10:45 and again 10:55 to remind us that check out is at 11am. That is ridiculous! :-)
8,8 Excellent
Pros: We loved the hosts and their hospitality. Yejeon Pension felt like a home and was an unforgettable experience for our adventure around Korea. The breakfasts were awesome, and the host would drive you to the bus station.
Cons: The location of Yejeon is outside the main part of the city. It is a pension, so it has more of an apartment feel rather than a hotel stay.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Our host was very friendly and helpful, he drove us to the bus stop as the pension is a bit far from everything. The pension itself is cosy, small and the room we got was big with a kitchen and terasse included.
Cons: It's far away from everything, so a car is really recommended. If like us you don't have one and came by train or bus, then it's a bit harder to visit the region.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The owner could speak English better than I expected and was very accomodating, he even offered us to take us to the bus stop since we didn't have a rented car.
Cons: Amount of dishes available in the kitchen (too little)
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very friendly, flexible and accommodating. Room is complete with facilities. You can even have barbeque. Like a cabin/glamping experience.
Cons: Location was ok but inaccessible to public transport. But atleast it has good parking. But if you want a quiet, intimate and peaceful evening this is the best place
9,0 Excellent
Pros: The owner of the pension came to pick us up at the train station, which was really nice. The location of the pension is really nice, surrounded by mountains. We didn't have a car, so the owner dropped us of at the busstop and picked us up there when we needed it. It is easier if you have a car, but this way was fine too. We wanted to get out of the busy cities and for this purpose this location was great. The room was nice and the breakfast was good too.

Pros: The breakfast is reasonable for the amount you have paid for. The location is good but there are very limited restaurants around if you don't like taking McDonald's.
Cons: I have encountered three receptionists and overall speaking, their English is just OK. They understood your questions but could only responded in a limited way while you have to figure out the answers yourself!

Pros: Location next to express bus terminal. While only 1 elevator it was very fast. Nicely renovated hotel. Good size room. Good wifi with in room router. Decent tv selection for English speakers. Good breakfast for 3 star hotel in Korea where breakfast is not so good. Large king size bed.
Cons: Bathroom was too slippery. No place to put items in shower. No hooks to hang towels. Nothing to hold onto in shower. One side of bed lacked nightstand. Confusing light switches. Just 2 small pillows on a huge king size bed which needed at least 4 if not more given the small size.

Bellus Rose Pension Hotel - Gyeongju - Pool

8,5 Excellent (119 reviews)
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Bellus Rose Pension Hotel in Gyeongju, you'll be next to a golf course, a 2-minute drive from Bomun Lake and 8 minutes from Blue One Water Park. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, express check-in, and express check-out. A train station pick-up service is provided at no charge during limited hours, and free valet parking is available onsite.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The bedroom and bathroom were large, and clean. They had everything we needed for comfort without all the extra stuff that just gets in the way. The kichenette was small but had everything needed including utensils and an electric teapot. Pool and deck looked good but we were to busy to use. Mrs. Park and her husband were as nice as they could be. They also offered free rides to and from the bus or local train stations.
Cons: The Pension and restaurant complex was on the bus route so that was convenient however, the pensions were a ways up the hill. Mrs. Parks or her husband picked us up and delivered us down the hill every time we needed within minutes of our call but we hated having to disturb them all the time. They never acted like we were bothering them at all so I guess it shouldn't be a negative.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice owners. Big and comfortable rooms, with equipment for cooking. Swimming pool. We spent two days there and were very well treated. One of our sons hurt himself when playing and the owner brought him to the best hospitals for making a few stitches, spending several hours at night with me.
Cons: It is 10 min walk from a bus station that goes either to city center or to the other tourist site. The owners were extremely helpful to bring us to the bus station and even picked us up from the KTX station Singyeongju, which is outside of the city and 30 minutes away, for a smaller fee. The best option is to have a car. If you travel by bus, you have to wait for the buses sometimes 15-30min and bus drivers are not nice at all with tourists. The central city station tourist info helped us find a car.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was excellent. A very family friendly place. Mrs. Park treats you like family. Great place. We will visit again. She also speaks English so communication was no problem.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The host are super nice. They make us feel like home, helping as much as they can to make our stay confortable. They help us with bus, pick us up at the station as many times as we asked for (even when we didn’t ask). The room was lovely, with a big terrace and confortable equipment (bed, small kitchen, etc.). The breakfast was good as well.
Cons: Nothing :)
9,6 Excellent
Pros: We travel from Busan to Gyeongju by bus and the day before we receive an email from Ms Park, the owner of the Pension, asking at what time we would arrive because the transfer from the bus/train station to the Bellus rose was included. Once we were in the Pension, Ms Park explain us what we could do in the city and asked us to call her in case we had any troubles. I have to say that Ms Park is a very lovely person and made our visit to Gyeongju very delightfull.
Cons: The Pension is not in the center of the city but there is a bus that takes only 10 minutes to arrive. From the bus stop to the pension, it takes around 10 minutes walking. It was not really a problem for us. Actually, the Bellus Rose is in a national park and if you like nature, you will love this place.
6,7 Good
Pros: Ondal flooring in Korean style room. The owner is kind to provide breakfast though we have prepared ours. We thanks the owner letting us know the attractions at night in Gyeongju, we may have missed if she didn’t prompt us as we stopped over in Gyeongju for one night only.
Cons: Nil
