Chiam Gotaek is a decent, clean, and reasonably well-run lodge. We just finished a two-night stay in the room with the adjoining tea terrace. We speak Korean, so we didn't experience the communication difficulties that others have mentioned, but we can easily imagine how that could be a problem for some visitors. In order to keep this detailed and brief,... More

We had an ondol style room with an en suite shower room. Towels were provided. The room was clean. There was a tv in the room. The wifi didn't work while we were there. All the taxis knew the place when we asked, journey cost approx 4,000won from the centre (train station). The house is nice but we had problems... More

I can not vouch for the price or the location, as my Korean friend booked our stay and drove us there as a sort of gift. (We were spoiled for a change). But I can vouch for the experience of the place. It was charming. The rooms were small and cozy. Yes you will be sleeping on the floor, but... More

The location is pretty good. It's only less than 10 min taxi riding from the train station, the city centre. This place is very clean and well maintained. Some of Hanok guest houses are not comfortable to stay but most rooms have attached bathrooms, TV and air-con. If you are lucky, well English speaking daughter of the owner will be... More

Even it's quite expensive, we wanted to experience to stay at one of those traditional house. We thought it will be worth, but unfortunately it wasn't :( First of all, after a long trip, taking a cab to this location ( really bad location, half hour from Bus terminal), there was nobody at the location! After waiting for more than... More

Chiam House is a traditional Korean house stay located a couple of kilometres from Andong station. It is possible to walk to downtown but given the low cost of taxis, a taxi is most convenient. The room we stayed in was clean and had a pleasant view of the grounds. Bathroom facilities are shared. Booking was somewhat difficult as the... More
