Hilton Gyeongju

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A four day conference is usually a tiring time so to have this wonderfrul hotel staff look after you so well is so very welcome. The room cleaning was the most efficient that I have seen in a Hilton hotel anywhere. The work space was comfortable and a little walk out area was useful for taking breaks in the pleasant autumn air. Amenities were provided and replaced promptly as necessary without reminders. When i had an IT problem the housekeeping staff was quick to respond. The breakfast had both Western and Korean with plenty of healthy food.choices. Plenty of fruit and salad. The mushrooms were absolutely fantastic and so was my Korean favourite Beef and turnip soup. Their bakery provided some very delicious products I would recommend- red bean buns, almond crokant and pumpkin bread. For those without downtown shopping time- the shopkeeper in the lobby has a good choice and is open to bargaining!! A final act of kindness-at the check out , the concierge noted my bag had a squeaky wheel and glued it up.There's real service for you!

I just spent three days at this wonderful hotel to attend a conference in the hotel. The property is extremely well-managed by Yongwoon Kim and his skilled, friendly, and hard working staff. My king room was spacious, clean, and quiet, with a very comfortable bed. The work area had a nice sized desk with several outlets and an excellent wi-fi connection. The breakfast, managed by Yoon Il Yong was incredible with a huge selection of both western and Korean options. I especially appreciated the tasty egg white omelettes that the friendly chefs prepared for me each morning. I stay at Hilton often and this was the best I have visited around the world. I look forward to returning in the future.

From the check-in, I felt a very high level professional service from the staffs of Hilton. You will be fully satisfied with all kinds of service and facilities to be povided by the well-trained and educated staffs.

I have a good memory of first visit to Hilton's in Gyeongju in Korea The room was clean and the staff was friendly overall. Although the restrictions on the use of microwave ovens and the paid policies of the sauna were disappointing, we plan to do re-visit of Gyeongju Hilton's in the near future.

This is a huge characterless resort hotel. The rooms are nicely furnished and kept well but do take care when booking as everything is an extra charge. Unbelievably staying in the hotel does not include pool access. To swim in the pool is 30k won (€22). We misheard the price and thought the price was a factor of ten less. 8k won seemed reasonable as surely there was no way the charge of 80k won for 2 adults and a child could be right!!! It is a rate than can only be called gouging!! The pool area is large but even so it was standing room only as it was packed so that even walking, never mind swimming, was difficult. I would not go back and would think very carefully about staying at another Hilton hotel if the overpricing is typical

Gyeongju is welcoming and offers numerous UNESCO heritage sites for visits as well as places to stroll arou8nd the lake, where the hotel is located. On every visit to the area I stay in this hotel. Hilton Gyeongju features numerous valuable services, very well equipped fitness centre and spa. Recommended to business, family and other tourists at large travellers.

The overall hotel stay and dining experience was wonderful. The service was excellent and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Even when you consider the fact that this was during the peak summer vacation season, however, I strongly advise you to not go to the swimming pool First of all, the service in this area of the hotel was awful. The employees treated the customers quite rudely. Second, no instructions were provided at the pool check-in site regarding the need for "certain young children" (again, no explicit definition of who these children are) to wear life vests. They allowed everyone to enter if you pay the price. Once inside the pool, we were told that our youngest who is quite a good swimmer was not able to enter the outdoor pool without a vest. When we explained to the lifeguard, one lifeguard in particular was quite rude. The employees, in my opinion, did not want to be responsible. Third, too many children and adults were in the outdoor and indoor pool, making it virtually impossible for anyone who wanted to swim to actually swim. This is not a water park.

It's a 29-gal family trip to Aiwa. Swimming pool, kids club is very good. Clean. It's wide. I like the lawn where children can play. The noise of the hallway was transmitted to the room and it was uncomfortable. Yogurt Yogurt was a handmade yogurt last year. This time, it is a commercial yogurt ... I stayed at the resort the day before and moved to the hotel. The room condition does not match the resort. The child will sleep all the way. ^^

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.
