First time traveller in Korea and it was a tremendous experience. 126 Mansion has the following advantages: 1) It's like home away from home - Hyunjeong and her family are very helpful, assisting with suggestions of where to go and helping with bookings on Korean-language websites 2) It's conveniently located near palaces like Gyeonbokgung and Changdeokgung, and walking distance to...

I´ve stayed already for the second time at 126 Mansion - and it was definetely not the last time. The house, managed by three sisters and their mother (responsible for the delicious korean breakfast) is not only very well located at the edge of the beautiful and quiet Samcheong-dong area. Staying with the Lee-Ladies means also be in good hands... More

126 Mansion is such an amazing place to stay while you are in Seoul. I agree with a previous poster who said they are scared to leave a good review because when I want to stay again, maybe there will be no room! Ha! But truly everything about 126 mansion is perfect. My husband and I teach English in South... More

My husband and I recently stayed at 126 Mansion for four nights. Everything about our stay was lovely. It was our first visit to Korea and even though we cannot speak Korean, we felt very comfortable communicating with Hyunchung and her "sisters" and mom. Being greeted by their little Shih Tzu on his little pillow by the front door every... More

Actually it was so good that I am a little unwilling to write a review because I am afraid that next time when I visit (which I will definitely do) it might be overbooked. However, the place is really wonderfull - location is great, owners feel like friends, place itself is beautiful and cozy and meals delicious. I will not... More

I stayed the second time with Hyunchung and her family and it was as great as the first time. I've felt very welcomed since the moment I first entered their café/guesthouse. The room is clean as well as the little bathroom and the bed (mattress) very comfortable. The best part (in winter) is probably the enjoyable floor heating! The morning... More

The host family of 126 Mansion are very lovely people. Home-cooked breakfast provided every morning is so sumptuous! Rooms are very clean & well-maintained. Samcheongdong, the famous street with pretty cafes & interesting shops are located within a 5-min walk too. Next to this mansion is the Blue House, thus there are many police officers on duty, making the neighbourhood... More

I love staying at 126 Mansion! The location is excellent--right downtown but in a quiet and scenic old neighbourhood. There are good coffee shops and restaurants nearby, historic sights and boutiques. Plus, you can walk to many of Seoul's best museums and galleries. The guest house is very clean, quiet and convenient whether you're on a short or long trip.... More

My friend in Seoul steered me to 126 Mansion because she thought it would be an authentic experience and non-touristy. It was! It was a short walk from the subway and it was a good location to get around. Breakfast is included and was great. You choose between Korean or western-style breakfast. Coffee was great. It is 5-minute walk to... More
