    Acceptable”

    Room obviously wasn’t cleaned properly (old towel on the bathroom door, chips on the ground behind the bed); location is out of the ways and while the word “resort” is in the name of the hotel, it’s a two-star hotel at best

    Not what we had hoped”

    We were traveling to Gyeongju as a family with two young children, and booked a standard room for 4 people. This gave us 1 double bed. The children (5 & 8) were expected to sleep on the floor. Then, the bedding wasn't clean (had hair on it), the walls were so thin that I could hear everyone walking past the room all night and the air conditioner didn't work, the bedroom window didn't open and no screen on the patio door so we were eaten alive by mosquitos. The resort has restaurants in it (which we didn't try), but if you are looking for authentic Korean food, this isn't the place. It was a 10,000KW cab ride to the center of the city where there were restaurants. Also, the location is not within walking distance of any of the sightseeing in town. We didn't have a lot of choices in Gyeongju that weekend because of a marathon in town, but compared to the other hotels we have stayed in in Korea, this one was poor.

    has been very friendly and he even showed me my room. Because there are alot of kids on school tours, assigned me a room that was away from the "noise". I enjoyed his company and he made me feel very welcomed to a resort I stayed a year ago. It may be basic but great employees such as makes it worth coming back. He works non stop and despite a 16 hr shift, he smiles and does his best.

    Lovely location and a comfortable hotel”

    Location is good, very near some of the major attractions in Gyeongju. It is really a condominium, so there is a living room with cooking factilities and a bedroom. The verandah was very useful.

    everything about this hotel was excellent. cooking facility was particularly good for us vegetarians, as korean cuisine does not usually cater for vegetarians. the only problem with this hotel was the sleeping arrangement. there was a very bright security lighting just outside the bedroom window which had only a thin curtain. we had to resort to moving the mattress to the living area. bedding needs renewing. the mattress was sagging in the middle and the duvet had rather unpleasant stale odour. if we go to gyeongju again, we will give it another try, though. maybe we will take our sleeping bag!

    Nice hotel with very minimal furnishings”

    Good hotel for the price

    Overall, the Kensington is a nice hotel for the price. It is a bit far from most of the major tourist spots, but is in a pretty, scenic area. There were several restaurants, a cafe, and a Family Mart at the hotel which was very convenient. The hotel staff is great! They are very courteous and helpful. The rooms are large and clean. Our one big complaint was that the heater turned on automatically at night and we could not turn it off in our rooms. Additionally, we had issues with an outside hall light staying on all night and shining directly into our room.

    Good & Helpful Staff

    We were not happy when we were told that the hand towels are used as bath towels. There were many student groups and they were noisy. Room was more of a chalet and 3 star hotel. Air con was not working because the hotel claims that it is normal for the spring time of the year. Every amenity was "old" and needs upgrading.

    The room is very big and clean. If you like to cook, it's a perfect room!

    If you like shopping, there's nothing around, but a good place to take a rest.And if you want to cook, it's better to buy things from downtown, because there's only 2 small "family mart".
