        We stayed here for one night and was very impressed with the pension. Mr Matthew Noh, owner takes a personal interest in taking care of the customers. He helped us with places to visit in Gyeongju-si. The rooms are neat and clean but slightly small. My kids were super excited with the nicely painted houses.

        Dropped by Gyeongju because of Polaris”

        Read bout the reviews and decided to give Gyeongju a day simply because the colourful huts attracted me. Owner Matthew brings pride to the Koreans due to his professionalism and hospitality. We missed the house’s bus stop and he voluntarily picked us from the next stop. Also, we’re grateful he updated us with the accurate timing of the bus arrival. Had an enjoyable stay and had recommended this cosy place to my friends and family. Oh, he gave his stunning postcards and delivered them for free! God bless you, Matthew :)

        Polaris is a fabulous place to stay.”

        We had a great time at Polaris. As a group of 8, we loved the houses which are cute, quirky and very comfortable. Matthew, the owner, is just wonderful. He picked us up from and retuned us to the bus station, drove us to local restaurants and even acted as our guide for our day tour of Gyeongju. Although Polaris feels very private and away from the noise and traffic, many things are within walking distance including convenience stores, restaurants and the traditional craft village. Thank you so much, Matthew, for the great hospitality you showed us. We will definitely be back and will surely recommend Polaris to our families and friends when they come to Gyeongju!

        Accessible, comfortable, scenic (return visitor)”

        Matthew's pension is so scenic that I came back for a second stay! Getting there is simple - simply take bus #700 from the Singyeongju Station (~45minutes ride), the pension owner, Matthew, will pick you up from the bus stop near his home and drive you to a nicely decorated pension fully equipped with a kitchen, large-screened LCD TV, 2 coffee tables, a vanity table, and a luxurious bed and toilet. He is also an avid photographer that gives great tips on composition, so don't forget to get some good photography tips while you're there!

        Location is close to the main street, easy to reach, and the host will drive the guests from bus stop to the hostel. The road can be recognized easily even back in night time. The environment nearby is peaceful and quiet. The guests may have a nice walk in the morning time after breakfast. The room is clean, comfortable and have enough facilities. Even it is cold the heater is warm enough. The whole garden outside the room is very beautiful and nice for photo talking. The spoken english of the host is very good and he is very nice and helpful to introduce the sightseeing site nearby, He is a photographer as well. He will always go out to take some gorgeous pictures and share with us. Overall, we have a very nice experience in Gyeongju.

        Peaceful surrounding, warm host! ”

        Nestled in the midst of mountains, the Polaris Pension is a great place for travellers who wish to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Completely equipped with a kitchenette, dining table, balcony, amongst pther facilities, this place is a great place for one to rest and recharge! The place is located very close to attractions such as the bulgaksa temple, seokguram and the bomun resort. However, as the buses are highly infrequent (approx 20-30mins interval), travellers may wish to rent a car or book a tour package with the owner. Upon arrival, the kind host, Matthew will help plan your travel itinerary for you. He is also an avid photographer and very interested in meeting new friends from around the world! If ypu like nature, and a homey setting, Polaris is a great choice for the tranquil traveller.

        I will definitely be back here the next time I'm in Gyeongju area. There is nothing to dislike. Everything is pleasant, clean, and welcoming. The surrounding is green and peaceful. There is even a really cool coffee place nearby. Matthew, the owner, is really friendly and helpful. He helped us plan out our short but fruitful exploration of the Gyeongju attractions, including Mt Namsan. Once you figure it out, it is actually quite easy to travel to all the attraction sites by bus, which come regularly. One night is too short.

        Owner/Tour Guide, Fun Decor, Location near Sights

        I came here to show my parents around the sights. We didn't have a car, so the owner of the hotel, Matthew was so kind to help us. He drove us to Bulguksa and explained in detail how to get home via bus and taxi. He also gave us a brochure and was an excellent tour guide. Then, when we had to leave, he drove us to the train station. We came by slow train, but the best station to come to this hostel from is the Buguksa Station, not Gyeongju Station. The room was also excellent. I stayed there with a group and the beds were comfortable and the bathroom had a nice shower. I would definitely stay here again!

        This was the second time I took a group to the Pension. Matthew was and is the best host! One of my participants was ill and he took us to the pharmacy. Matthew also made reservations for us and when we had to cancel one reservation he was so nice to do so. This is the best place to stay in Gyeongju (I've stayed a few other places), it's a beautiful getaway from Seoul to enjoy the culture of Gyeongju and friendly host. I will never stay anywhere else--the Polaris Pension will always be home away from home.

        Home away from home ”

        We stayed here for one night and was very impressed with the pension. Mr Matthew Noh, owner takes a personal interest in taking care of the customers. He helped us with places to visit in Gyeongju-si. The rooms are neat and clean but slightly small. My kids were super excited with the nicely painted houses.

        Dropped by Gyeongju because of Polaris”

        Read bout the reviews and decided to give Gyeongju a day simply because the colourful huts attracted me. Owner Matthew brings pride to the Koreans due to his professionalism and hospitality. We missed the house’s bus stop and he voluntarily picked us from the next stop. Also, we’re grateful he updated us with the accurate timing of the bus arrival. Had an enjoyable stay and had recommended this cosy place to my friends and family. Oh, he gave his stunning postcards and delivered them for free! God bless you, Matthew :)

        Polaris is a fabulous place to stay.”

        We had a great time at Polaris. As a group of 8, we loved the houses which are cute, quirky and very comfortable. Matthew, the owner, is just wonderful. He picked us up from and retuned us to the bus station, drove us to local restaurants and even acted as our guide for our day tour of Gyeongju. Although Polaris feels very private and away from the noise and traffic, many things are within walking distance including convenience stores, restaurants and the traditional craft village. Thank you so much, Matthew, for the great hospitality you showed us. We will definitely be back and will surely recommend Polaris to our families and friends when they come to Gyeongju!

        Accessible, comfortable, scenic (return visitor)”

        Matthew's pension is so scenic that I came back for a second stay! Getting there is simple - simply take bus #700 from the Singyeongju Station (~45minutes ride), the pension owner, Matthew, will pick you up from the bus stop near his home and drive you to a nicely decorated pension fully equipped with a kitchen, large-screened LCD TV, 2 coffee tables, a vanity table, and a luxurious bed and toilet. He is also an avid photographer that gives great tips on composition, so don't forget to get some good photography tips while you're there!

        Location is close to the main street, easy to reach, and the host will drive the guests from bus stop to the hostel. The road can be recognized easily even back in night time. The environment nearby is peaceful and quiet. The guests may have a nice walk in the morning time after breakfast. The room is clean, comfortable and have enough facilities. Even it is cold the heater is warm enough. The whole garden outside the room is very beautiful and nice for photo talking. The spoken english of the host is very good and he is very nice and helpful to introduce the sightseeing site nearby, He is a photographer as well. He will always go out to take some gorgeous pictures and share with us. Overall, we have a very nice experience in Gyeongju.

        Peaceful surrounding, warm host! ”

        Nestled in the midst of mountains, the Polaris Pension is a great place for travellers who wish to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Completely equipped with a kitchenette, dining table, balcony, amongst pther facilities, this place is a great place for one to rest and recharge! The place is located very close to attractions such as the bulgaksa temple, seokguram and the bomun resort. However, as the buses are highly infrequent (approx 20-30mins interval), travellers may wish to rent a car or book a tour package with the owner. Upon arrival, the kind host, Matthew will help plan your travel itinerary for you. He is also an avid photographer and very interested in meeting new friends from around the world! If ypu like nature, and a homey setting, Polaris is a great choice for the tranquil traveller.

        I will definitely be back here the next time I'm in Gyeongju area. There is nothing to dislike. Everything is pleasant, clean, and welcoming. The surrounding is green and peaceful. There is even a really cool coffee place nearby. Matthew, the owner, is really friendly and helpful. He helped us plan out our short but fruitful exploration of the Gyeongju attractions, including Mt Namsan. Once you figure it out, it is actually quite easy to travel to all the attraction sites by bus, which come regularly. One night is too short.

I got a room with the best view, I can see the mountain directly from here. the location is also strategic, bus station is located only 5mins. the best thing from this hotel is the owner. the owner is such a nice person. he gave us a detail about Gyeongju city, and how to get to every tourism site in this city. you will never get lost because he always there to help you. But too bad we only stay here one night, so we couldn't visit all those place. I strongly recommended you to stay here, and consult your itinerary with the owner, he can gave you a lot of advice. I just wish I could come here agaiiinn~~~

        Best Tourism Pension in Gyeongju!”

        Owner/Tour Guide, Fun Decor, Location near Sights

        I came here to show my parents around the sights. We didn't have a car, so the owner of the hotel, Matthew was so kind to help us. He drove us to Bulguksa and explained in detail how to get home via bus and taxi. He also gave us a brochure and was an excellent tour guide. Then, when we had to leave, he drove us to the train station. We came by slow train, but the best station to come to this hostel from is the Buguksa Station, not Gyeongju Station. The room was also excellent. I stayed there with a group and the beds were comfortable and the bathroom had a nice shower. I would definitely stay here again!

        Friendly owner, easy transportation, close to restaurants

        This was the second time I took a group to the Pension. Matthew was and is the best host! One of my participants was ill and he took us to the pharmacy. Matthew also made reservations for us and when we had to cancel one reservation he was so nice to do so. This is the best place to stay in Gyeongju (I've stayed a few other places), it's a beautiful getaway from Seoul to enjoy the culture of Gyeongju and friendly host. I will never stay anywhere else--the Polaris Pension will always be home away from home.
