When booking my trip to Gyeongju, I actually chose it because it was close to the theater we were seeing a play at night and I wasn't sure we would get public transportation that late.
Enroute from the play, we say a lot of things around the hotel that made us decide to explore around the hotel the next day.
A lot of attractions around it. The hotel itself is not bad. The mountain view was a little too lush for my liking but cant be a nature-hater. The hotel also has a pool, which is right in front of the hotel. A little awkward but its clean and perfect for relaxing after walking round Gyeongju.
