Hilton Gyeongju

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

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.
