We stayed at Sarangchae Home Stay. We stayed in a tradiditional ondol-style room – basically this means the small room had a thin mattress on the floor, a fan, and nothing else. Just a 30 foot walk from our room, the shared shower facility was clean, but very very small with nowhere to leave dry clothes – the setup just didn’t make too much sense.
Finding the hotel is a little difficult – we managed to hug the walls of the park, and there was a little sign pointing us there. Our GPS helped us find it in the evening, when we came at it from a totally different direction in the dark.
The owners were very helpful with planning our day – especially given how little time we had there. There was free fast internet in the common room. Again, eggs, toast and jam were provided, and there were lots of travellers to swap stories with.
There is a convenience store just down the street. The location is very quiet, and extremely convenient to the park and buses to get out to the sights around Gyeongju.
