    My stay at the Polaris Pension was awesome! Extremely welcoming and helpful owner and his family! Upon arrival the owner provided me with a tourist map and suggested a doable itinerary considering the length of my stay. Besides free pick-up and drop-off from/to bus stations they gave me a ride to beautiful Anapji pond in the evening. The room was large, clean and quiet, with lots of nice little touches. I especially liked the cute vanity table and floor heating. In the morning you can admire the picturesque scenery while sipping a cup of tea on the terrace. At night you can see the stars through the skylight! All in all there was everything needed for a comfortable & relaxing stay, really good value for money. Convenient location: mere minutes (3 stops) from Bulguksa Temple by bus #10 or 700, get off at Hadong-Kun-Ma-ul bus stop. A short walk from the bus stop uphill.

    The host (Mr Noh) treat is as a friend rather than just a guest, everything we needed were well prepared, and one thing that really impressed us was the pick up service that they offered given the fact that we didnt make any request in advance. Our transportation problems were all sorted and he even offered us free rides to bulguksa station to purchace tickets and to bulguksa temple for sightseeing. He also assisted us on arranging taxi rides for our early journey to our next destination. Much appreciated about their service.

    Nope, overall it was an awesome experience to stay in that place.

    Very friendly attentive host makes you feel like home. He gives from the heart. I arrived many hours late and he was looking for me at the bus stop 3 times and caught me as soon as I got off the bus. When I asked about a place to buy persimmons and apples, he immediate brought me one of each as I was tired from a long journey. He even helped call the next host and arranged for my pickup. The room is beautifully decorated just like a little fairy cottage, very cozy. The pension is in a relaxed natural surrounding. The heated floors in the bedroom and bathroom are very nice and warm. Very convenient location to Bulguksa and Golgulsa Temple. Close to bus stop. I love the Korean restaurant close by, inexpensive, delicious, with friendly service. The pension special discount (73,000 won for double) makes it a reasonable value.

    No bathtub, only showers. Water is not hot enough and flows slowly. After long walks, it would nice to soak in a hot tub. There is not much view from the room itself although the pension is in a nice countryside surrounding. Also the room is quite small, not 42 meters as described.

    Stayed in Polaris for 2 days.Fancy rooms with caring service! The owner was very nice and helpful! It was a great expreience to have breackfast at room's balcony with great view and fresh countryside air. I had my best sleep during my trip in Korean. Although the location is a bit far from the town center, the environment is even much more better, and you can easily get buses to the down town and may sightseeing places. I recommend everyone who love quite and lovely environment to come and stay in Polaris.

    The owner is friendly, helpful and speaks English! Rooms are clean and well furnished. The location of Polaris Pension is very near to Bulguksa Temple and the Grotto, there are direct buses. There are also direct buses to the town attractions (Daereungwon, Geyrim, Anapji Pond, etc).

    Very colourful and comfy place, that has been designed with a lot of attention to detail. Nice view from the room over the rice fielsds with them mountains in the background. The owner is a great host, speaks excellent english and helps with everything. The restaurant around the corner is very recommendable.

    The Pension is rather remotely situated, maybe 10 mins by car from the city center. Thats something to be aware of, but its rather easy to get back an forth.

    Country side location, cozy, very quiet, unique interior design, family atmosphere, very clean, balcony overlooking rice fields, owner is exceptionally friendly and helpful and anxious to please, near by a nice restaurant with tasty traditional Korean food,

    The most comfortable bed that I had during travelling South Korea. Owner is hospitable and provided me with lots of useful information about tourist spots. Also he upgraded my room to deluxe. Design of the rooms is so cute. Location is great, bus stop is within 3 min walk and you need 30 min to get to the city downtown. Because Gyeongju attractions are located on a big territory and not only in downtown, you don't need to choose hotel in downtown, so Polaris Pension is a great choice. Good breakfast is served every morning in your room.

    Polaris Pension is as crazy and quirky a hotel as you might come across .. a Swiss chalet in country South Korea. Each room is painted in a different bright colour. Ours was the bright orange Octagonal one. Whatever you think of the hotel itself, you'll never come across a nicer or more helpful hotelier than Mr Noh. He contacted us immediately after booking, arranged to pick us up from the bus stop in his own car, arranged our itinerary, then took us down to dinner at the local restaurant 50m from the hotel where he joined us for a glass of the local wild berry wine.

    Despite the outside, this is traditional Korean living: the units are spartanly furnished and you'll be sleeping on futon mattresses on the floor. For westerners, this would take some getting used to. Mr Noh happily provided us will additional futons to make it more comfortable but it was still pretty hard. For me though, this was one of the most fun things about the hotel.

    The owner is sooooooo kind !!! Also took us to the supermarket by his car !!! His English is great, and he's very helpful.

    The room is small and we didn't have room cleaning (not a big deal anyway, for a two nights stay). Location is close to the Temples, but far from anywhere else (just a few restaurants) and buses are not frequent at all - and hard to understand. Quite pricey - other inns close to there and not advertised on English sites come for a fifth!

    We really enjoyed our three night stay in Polaris Pension. Our room was very comfy and the decoration very cute. The manager did eveything he could to help us (driving us from Gyeongju station or helping plan our days).

    The manager is a kind, thoughtful person with a good command of English. The rooms are very comfortable and the bathroom is quite big by Korean standards. The settings are wonderful, the landscape is both beautiful and restful. Best of all is the manager's friendliness and willingness to help. Every morning, you get served a very nice breakfast in your own room and when the weather is nice, you can take it on the verandah while watching the scenery. N'hesitez pas a y aller, le site est calme et magnifique et le proprietaire est fantastique. De plus, il parle tres bien l'anglais ce qui est assez rare en Coree.
