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

Hello, Angela. Thank you very much for the review. We miss you and sometimes I miss London as well. Here it is getting hotter, surely in the very middle of Summer. Hope there, the weather would be good just like last Summer. And hope you are well. Big hug!! More

I had such a great weekend at this place. It was in a perfect location. So many great shops and cafes nearby. It's a very safe neighborhood, probably my favorite area of Seoul. When I arrived at the house, I had a great conversation with the sisters who ran it. I felt like family, and that was really special. The... More

The place is ideally located, atmosphere is warm and charming, but the single room doesn't worth the price paid. It's very small with no window, it was very stuffy to sleep in there. I would only recommend the place for double rooms.

I've stayed at the Mansion some days and I can only say that everything was wonderful: the room, the delicious food, the traditional breakfast, the exhibitions, the area, full of galeries and beautiful cafés... Hyunchung and her sisters made me feel like at home, I just was happy at the 126 Mansion.

126 Mansion is a wonderful place to stay, located in the charming Samcheongdong area. It's one of the more peaceful pockets of Seoul and it was so relaxing to return to 126 Mansion after a busy day of sightseeing. Su, Hyunchung and their family are both warm and laid-back, and treated me like an old friend. The food (choice of... More

I stayed here during my first trip to Seoul. It's not as near as I would like it to be to the Anguk Metro Station but the walk past ginko trees, awesome cafes, art galleries, hanoks etc. made my stay very memorable. Su and her family welcomes you into their house. They have an adorable dog who is pretty much... More

This is my first time in South Korea and I never felt so at ease being here. The hosts made me feel comfortable and welcomed. They helped me right from day 1 when I got on a cab from Seoul Station and having difficulty communicating with the driver, just asked the cab driver to call them and I was at... More

If you are looking for a nice and cozy guesthouse to stay at in Seoul, this is the place for you. 126 Mansion is situated at a very convenient and accessible location.
