stayed a night in march 2015 at this 218 year old traditional house (#84 national treasure). No regrets it was splendid! Located quite far from town area, We did have some trouble finding the place initially, if you drive make sure to map everything down, we took a cab from town the driver had to call the house owner twice...

There's no better way to experience the real traditional Korean culture than staying a night or two at this lovely, historical house. The owner, Mr. Ryu, personally welcomed us, and gave us a tour of his house. The stay was definitely the highlight of our trip. Mr Ryu even went out of his way to help us resolved an unfortunate...

Serenity is the key word for a stay in Bukchondaek. My wife and I stayed in this piece of well preserved history for 2 nights from the 26th to the 28th of December 2014. As pictures and comments have been, this sprawling house is straight out of a postcard even in the bitter cold December winter. We were put up... More

We had a great time at Bukchondaek. Perfect atmosphere, we especially appreciated the tour of the stunning complex by the owner Mr. Ryu, who is proud of the house beeing in his family for the 9th generation now. The food was delicious too. The original rooms of this UNESCO-Gem are heated by a traditional system with burning wood from underneath.... More

We stayed for one night in Bukchondaek wanting to experience Hahoe village without any tourists and it was a very good choice… The village is beautiful and we enjoyed walking around with the children. Bukchondaek is a 200 year old house built by the great-(x7) grandfather of the present owner… his ancestors were wealthy and well known family with one... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend. We paid 200,000W total for one night (100,000W each). It is right in the middle of the folk village and a very nice house, if not the nicest. It is very true that the owner does not speak any English. Luckily, my boyfriend and I can speak the basics, so we were... More

My husband and I had a very memorable and enjoyable stay at the Bukchondek in May (2013). This is a large, traditional courtyard house/complex located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the HaHoe Folk Village (pronounced Hah Heh Mah-Er - in Korean) about 20 minutes outside the city of Andong. It can be reached by taxi from downtown Andong... More

We booked a room here via email which was easy. We were the only guests for the one night we stayed. Our room was a traditional style Korean ondol room with underfloor heating and had a separate living room with a small fridge, kettle, bottled water. Towels were also provided. There are separate men's and women's bathrooms outside of the... More

Hahoe Village in Andong, hometown to famous clans that gave birth to respected Korean leaders and writers, is a truly beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site that I have always found pleasant to stroll in, but difficult to appreciate and to be moved by. While the village preserves the look and feel of an affluent and respectable traditional village, there are... More
