We spent 3 days at Bukchon Maru. The host were very nice and friendly. If you have chance, you can try many traditional korean robe. Worth to have experience with traditional korean style. Bukchon Maru is near the palaces, Samcheongdong quarter, etc.

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

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
