Staying in MAMA was the most unforgettable thing in Seoul. Rooms were warm and the host was nice and helpful. MaMa will be my first choice if I travel Seoul again.

Staying in a Korean traditional house as a part of our holiday was a best decision we made. Especially, when we chose an old beautiful traditional Korean house which is very good like Mama Hanok. We really recommend for a stay. The house is full of art items and sculptures. The warm Korean room (called ondol) are our family rooms... More

We stayed two nights at MaMa Hanok guesthouse and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were lucky because the first night it was only us and our friends and the second night we had the place to ourselves so didn't experience some of the noise other have talked about. The rooms are small (enough space for the bed and that's about... More

The location of Mr. & Mrs. Ju's home could not be better, and they are gracious and incredibly kind hosts. The guesthouse is full of tranquility, and the interior courtyard is a magical spot for breakfast. Mr. Ju is a heartwarming and inspiring man who went out of his way to make my stay in Seoul memorable, accompanying me to... More

The place is very different then regular guesthouses. You can feel like you join a Korean family so it is very good cultural experience. The owner advised me a lot about how and where to go and invited me for a dinner first to a market and later to his restaurant. I have experienced much more thanks to the fact... More

We spent two nights at MaMa Hanok Guesthouse as a side trip to Seoul on our way to Japan, and are so glad we did. Mr and Mrs Ju are very welcoming hosts, and were so kind and helpful. We were travelling with two young children, and all stayed in a cosy room together (with a bathroom), and slept on... More

Staying at MaMa Hanok was one of the highlights of our trip! One of my goals was to stay at a traditional Korean house with heated floors. Well, the heated floors did not disappoint! Although you don't sleep on a Western type of mattress, the Korean bedding was plump and plush and comfortable. Add the heated floor to that and... More

Stayed at Mama Hanok for a week. The owner is a very friendly man who is always willing and ready to introduce places to us. He replies emails very quickly before the trip and answers all my questions! He treats us like friends! He even prepared breakfast for us on the day we had to depart for our DMZ tour.... More

The owner is a very friendly man, nevertheless the place is a bit old, messy, smelly and extremely small. We stayed at one of the "better" room with our own private bathroom/toilet (instead of shared toilet). The size of room/bathroom is small, room is just enough to put 2single mattresses on the floor, that's it! andsee barely have space to... More
