We enjoyed very much our 2 nights stay in the guesthouse. It is such a wonderful experience for us and especially for the kids. It is a quiet place and the host is very helpful. We book the family room with private washroom, it is very tidy and clean. =)

If you want to stay in a quiet, nice and warm hearted place, it's a good choice. This family will take a great care of you. Very good traditional breakfast and we like so much the area around. We spent 3 nights and hope we can come back with our children in a near future. We highly recommend this Hanok.

Chanced on the Bukchon Maru guesthouse on Tripadvisor, saw the good reviews, and just booked. It was a lovely experience. A place with heart. The welcome from the Kim family was warm and genuine....

Staying in Samcheongdong / Bukchon

Neighborhood Profile
Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighborhood was traditionally home to Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean homes (called hanok), many of which are found in Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses, and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side streets attract locals and tourists alike for their quaint and charming scenery, while the Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae) serves as the residence for South Korea’s president. Art fans will love exploring the many independent and private art galleries in the area.
