Home away from home at Tavo House

Tavo House was a perfect place for us to stay. The bus stop is just down the road and the buses that go by there take you everywhere you want to go. It was in walking distance to the train station and main tourist sites. Only a quick taxi ride if you prefer not to walk. The hosts are the most accommodating family. They took such great care of us! I would highly recommend Tavo House!

Korean Mum

My sister and I only stayed here for 1 night but we absolutely loved the experience. "Korean mum", as we dubbed her, is absolutely bonkers but we wouldn't have changed a thing. The breakfast was excellent and she helped organise everything, plus let us leave our bags there all day the next day while we went out. The only small downsides were the shared bathroom (downstairs so not great if you need to get up in the night), and the location wasn't as good as where to stayed the following 2 nights

4/5 Good

a little bit far away from the downtown, but just 100m from the bus stop.

A home away from home

Really warm welcome into a family home! Living area and room were homely, comfortable and spacious. Wifi works. A Union flag appeared on the coffee table soon after checking in :) Great information sheets provided to the main places you'd want to visit - much more useful than the info I got from the tourist info office and a Gyeongju hotel I stayed in the night before. I asked where I could get dinner locally. A prompt phonecall was made then was walked to a restaurant just around the corner to have real, non-tourist Korean food, and ended up having dinner with Mrs Lee. Lovely! The night before, Mr Lee asked if I wanted to go visit some places in the morning... at 6am (as I had an early train to catch). It was a great, fun experience in the still of darkness. Returned for breakfast; was so tasty (loads of gyoza and fruit) and made especially early for me... missing breakfast was not an option! Mrs Lee then literally threw me out the house and told me to walk fast so I wouldn't miss my train! (It's a 10-15 min walk from the station so convenient location.) It's these details that make this place so special! There is genuine care and such a personal, helpful service so that can try to see everything Gyeongju has to offer (a lot! I underestimated spending just 1.5 days here) and have a great, easy experience with a snapshot of Korean home culture. It's a shame my plans didn't allow me to stay longer than 1 night. I would definitely stay again!
