Very homely place with friendly and welcoming owners. Owners were helpful and very accomodating, they gave us an extra heater for the room as we were stoll cold. The room is a little small but it gives it a cosy feeling and all the necessities are provided. Give the food in their cafe a try, breakfast was simple but delicious... More

126 Mansion is a lovely guest house located next to the palace in an art district just a short walk away from Insadong. The house itself is beautifully decorated and the hosts make you feel right at home from the moment you step through the door. It really feels like a cosy home rather than another bland hotel. The rooms... More

Many other reviewers have commented on the excellent location, the great atmosphere and the comfortable rooms and it is all true! What sets 126 Mansion apart is the care and enthusiasm of the owners, who will make you feel like one of the family in no time. Hyunjeong, Su and their sister gave us many tips on local sights and...

Been to the place twice, and will go back for more! Hosts are super friendly and helpful. The place is located in a nice art district with walking distance to Gyeongbokgung, MMCA, and full of cosy cafes and small shops. You'll enjoy the location, like you can spend the whole day cafe hopping in the area. It's a safe location... More

I've been to Seoul on several occasions but this is my first time staying at 126 Mansion. I really loved how this guesthouse was set up. A quaint cafe and store with carefully curated items, sit side by side on street level. Guestrooms were located on the second level followed by the rooftop garden right above. The road that leads...
