My trip last December 2014 was my second time staying in this wonderful guesthouse. With it being newly renovated and lovely Sun welcoming you with open arms, you're bound to have a wonderful stay in Seoul. StayKorea will always be my home whenever I go to Seoul.

At the end it felt like I became one of the family. Just one small detail dont go there during the french holiday period.... More
