We stayed here for 2 nights in the beginning of December. Though it was kinda far from the station we managed to find it eventually! Little did we realise that there was actually a mini bus that we could take that would take us right at the door step of Bukchonmaru. The breakfast was great and the hosts managed to... More

Thank you for nice review, Clement! We could not forget your couple. It was awesome to meet you at BukchonMaru. Sorry for the traditional pillow even though it is good to have a good sleep. We also prepare to offer regular pillow as well so please let us know if you want it. Hope you have great time in Seoul.... More

Love this place and as much as I can describe, the Perzik tea homemade by grandma is the best! and the restaurants around the village are just providing a wide choice of home made Korean food that we can't get enough of..

We arrived earlier than the check in time and lucky enough, the room was ready for us. The lady gave us a brief introduction to Hanoks. Told her that we would have to leave early the next morning and would not be able to join them for breakfast. The host bought us bread, milk and cultured milk at night for... More

I stayed here with two friends for one week in mid-November. It was only after we arrived when we discovered what a gem of a hanok/guesthouse this is! First of all, the hanok is located in a very safe neighborhood. Not once did we feel unsafe--even when returning late in the evening or leaving early in the morning. The host... More

Thanks to the assistance of the host, a van picked up us (my friends and I) at the airport @ a very late hour. And a friendly welcome from the host upon our arrival (1am). I haven't had rice for breakfast for the longest time but surprisingly it's very tasty along with my favorite food - Kimchi. :) Eating breakfast... More

They cooked very nice and warn breakfast which is in traditional Korean style. We found this place because of the breakfast and the special experience of wearing Korean suit with free of charge. Outside the house, there are many good places and restaurant. I found very comfortable living in the surroundings.

Thank you for the review! We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed breakfast and Bukchon village. It takes 15 minutes by walk from Anguk Station but it may take more time because many fun shops are on the street like Higashi said. It will be very nice to take a look around.

Delicious breakfast, nice ppl of guesthouse. Had free trial of wearing of traditional korean clothes and took photos at nice environment. For room: it is clean and tidy. However, there were mosquitoes at night during our sleep. Hope can provide mosquito repellents next time.

Sorry for the mosquito! We barely have mosquito and also prepare for the mosquitocide all the time. Everyday, we clean up every spots, every floors, every blankets and so every thing. Thank you for letting us know. Hope you have good memories in our guesthouse. Next time we can enjoy more delicious food and prettier Hanbok(Korean traditional costume)! :) More
