Stayed a night in Haemil guesthouse in Seoul. Nearest subway is jongno-3-ga. Lots of busy streets, eateries and street food. Just 1 min walk to changyeong-gung and beautiful secret garden. Owner Lucy(Shinsil) hospitality made us feel very at home, her traditional rice cake soup breakfast was fantastic! Will definitely come again!!!

We can have a great experience in traditional Korean lifestyle. Service is very good and always care our needs. This guesthouse is quiet, clean and good for relaxing. The location is close to Changdeokgung (Aunguk station) and easy in travel.

We stayed our first 2 nights at Haemil Guesthouse. It was challenging to find as it is down a small alley - but that is the beauty and fun. Set in a mixed residential neighborhood across of the palace - we felt like we were residents of Seoul for those 48 hours because we slept in a traditional home that... More

A very authentic hanok experience. Yes, a little hard to first locate, but actually very close to the palace & in fascinating old Hanok section of Seoul. The hostess is truly delightful & sees to every need. Breakfast was a good Korean one & she has you try on authentic Korean clothing. We'd stay there again.

Haemil Guesthouse is one of the very few hanoks with private bathroom in its room. That's the main reason I chose it and was overjoyed the moment we stepped into this splendid little hanok! The host, Lucy, is an attractive lady who speaks fantastic English. You will be fascinated how well this young and beautiful lady has managed this place.... More
