I have been staying at 126 Mansion for 2 nights during the preliminary stages of a longer stay in Seoul for an exchange semester. Coming from abroad with this little sense of uncertainty what to expect regarding my upcoming time, I really felt welcomed and familiar in Seoul and Korea right away thanks to this place. My room was cosy... More

Nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are very nice and if you can, book 201, large room with window overlooking the folk museum. Very safe and secure... More

126 Mansion is located next to the Blue House. The area is quiet and safe (how can it not be safe when it is next to the President's home). It is within the Samcheong-dong area where there are lots of cafes, bakery, eatery, and boutiques. Each shop has its own uniqueness and you will simply love the atmosphere there and... More

Staying at this guest house was a fantastic experience. I was in Seoul for the first time and travelling on my own. The owners were so welcoming and friendly, for example, sharing dinner with me and providing me with a lot of interesting information on Seoul and Korea. The location is great, right by Gyeongbuk Palace and about a 15... More

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

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.
