Hilton Gyeongju

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was spacious and comfortable, but the bathroom was very small and it was awkward getting out of the bath tub. The breakfast was good with plenty of variety of local and international dishes. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Most of the restaurants in the hotel as well as the Stars bar were closed during our stay. Every morning a new notice appeared informing that the venues were closed and apologising for the inconvenience. This made it look like as if it was a one off occurrence which we thought was insincere and misleading. We didn’t have buffet dinner as it was the same every day, focusing only on European dishes. We weren’t sure about this marketing strategy and its appeal. However, there are plenty of restaurant options near the hotel. The outside pool was closed even though it was 30 plus °C and sunny. The indoor pool was perfectly adequate, however the staff refused to open the doors so it was very hot in the already hot weather. Every time we used the pool we were told that the sauna was not included in the price, even though we repeatedly said that we didn’t want to use it. It felt like we weren’t trusted. There was no outside seating in the downstairs bar which would have been perfect on a warm night. The lake by the hotel looks like an unattractive marsh so you need to walk up the lake for the better scenery. There are two bus stops close to the hotel and we didn’t have any problems getting buses to the main attractions. We didn’t think Hilton in Gyeongju reflected the quality of the brand, however, would recommend the hotel for its quality of accommodation and breakfast.

The suites at the Hilton in Gyeongju were lovely, and are considerably better than the images shown on their website (presumably taken before remodeling). The grounds are very pleasant, although the view is somewhat marred by the less developed parts of the lake. The breakfast was good and varied, although the tea and coffee facilities weren't great. Stayed using points, so cannot speak to value, but definitely a nice place to stay. If you do not plan to have your own transport this hotel is not for you - its slightly out of town and not in a position where most of the sights are accessible.

Lovely hotel in a beautiful spot. Rooms spacious and well appointed. However, it was raining, we were tired and none of the restaurants within walking distance looked inspiring so we decided to treat ourselves and eat in the hotel. I know this is Korea, but I did expect a big international hotel to cater for vegetarians. The extensive buffet could only offer a salad, the Italian was closed and the Chinese used chicken stock in their only tofu dish that did not contain meat. Fortunately they offered to make the dish without chicken stock. Not what I expected from a Hilton.

The hotel is in a very good location with a lake nearby. The walk on the lake is very good with couple of anaxing coffee places. The hotel staff were excellent and took care of our dietary requirements. Being vegetarian is difficult but the manager in the restuarant made sure we get different variations of vegetarian food for the 3 days we stayed there.

This hotel is big. There is nothing much to say about it. Nothing great, decently clean, nothing particularly bad either other than the bathroom amenities are very sparse. There is a nice lake behind the hotel with a path going around it. Best thing about the lake is the Aden CoffeeHouse, a hipster cafe and diner, which is just a short walk. Otherwise, this hotel is totally forgettable.

I stayed at the Gyeongju Hilton while siteseeing in the area. A very nice spacious room and modern bathroom. The hotel has 4 different restaurants - Italian, Chinese, etc. Excellent food and service. Terrific breakfast. Fitness center and pools. Nice garden and views.

This hotel is good for family with young kids because of inside & ouside pools. Outside pool is not open yet, but inside pool is good enough for young kids. And this hotel is located near by big lake 'Bomun'. It is very good place for a early morning walk.

We arrived with the cherry blossoms in full bloom. It was spectacular to see. Nice luxury hotel but for the money wasn't happy with the breakfast buffet. Wouldn't spend the extra money on it again. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very nice. Walk around the lake was beautiful.

This was a four star experience. Staff service delivery at Gyeongju rivals most luxury brands in the market. When one staff member provides superior service, it is a reflection on their individual capability. When an entire staff including front desk, concierge, restaurant, valet, and housekeeping all exceed four star expectations, it is a reflection of superior leadership and training of the management team. There are many hotels to choose from in Gyeongju, but only one choice for superior service. Excellent stay, would absolutely come back for business or leisure. Well appointed room with all the western creature comforts, modern technology. Complementary internet offered passable speed for basic functions, made several wifi calls with no problems. Did not try the high speed paid service, but its available. Fantastic view of the lake and cherry blossoms at peak bloom first week of April. Multitude of dining options within shopping distance, local cuisine and plenty of western options. I do not speak Korean and was able to get by everywhere I went. Short cab ride to the KTX station. Extremely busy streets during the weekends of the Cherry Blossom season.

The cheer blossoms were in full bloom while visiting. Nice, luxury hotel. Staff was very efficient and helpful. We had the 3 rooms as we were traveling with our parents and children. Our room didn't have a working air conditioner so they moved us to a similar room with a gorgeous lake view and offered us a free breakfast buffet for 4. Buffet was pricey so it was nice to get it for free!
