N37°34.675' E126°58.848' We were looking for a room in a traditional Korean Guesthouse (Han-Ok) sleeping on the floor Korean-style with a private/en-suite bathroom (not shared). This was a problem, because most Han-Oks do not have rooms with private bathrooms. Most of the time a single room in the house is converted into a shared bathroom. Soriwool solved this problem by...

Thru the Hanok Home Stay Information Centre I got to know this place. I planned to stay for only 3 nights, but in the end extended for another night. Besides the perfect location, what make this place so charming are the ambience and the hospitality. It is located in the center of actions and yet away from the hustle and... More

This place has seen better days, but surely not today. I had chosen this place because of the reviews. But it did not live up to the expectation of a warm friendly environment. I was prepared for a simple accommodation but expected either to see other fellow backpackers, family living in the premise or attentive host - i.e. some "soul"... More

Out of six taxis, five of them could not locate the place. The place very run down: the sliding doors seems like falling off each time we opened & closed the doors. The wooden chair collapes when we sit on it. The flooring caves in when my friend was walking to the table & he was injured. We inform the... More

What a lovely traditional experience! Location was very central - within walking distance of the Bukchon Hanok Village, Insadong, and the Gyeongbokgung Palace. Yet, it was in a very quiet neighborhood. You almost felt that you are in a little oasis when you step through the doors. The owners were very friendly and personal. They spent a lot of time...

For my 4th trip to Korea, I decided to experience something new and booked at Soriwool. And I have not been disappointed. If you are a tourist or visiting some friends, the location is A-MA-ZING. You are right in the middle of these UNESCO sites, right in the action. You will experience things as if you were living in Seoul,... More

Staying here at Soriwool was after many comparisons on photos and reviews of several high ranked guesthouses around Bukchon that we made this choice, which turns out to be a wonderful Hanok experience! Flowers and plants make the Hanok color even brighter and enlighten your mood. Tender instrumental music calms the tiredness of traveling. Even in the morning, the hostess... More

I first went to Soriwool during my first trip to Seoul about a year ago. Soriwool is tucked in between two major palaces, Changdeokgung and Changgyeonggung, at the bottom of Bukchon Hanok village and close to nearby Samcheongdong. Although pretty much in the centre of Seoul it feels a world apart from Seoul's usual hustle and bustle. The area houses... More
