I have only good things to say about this hanok.We enjoyed every single moment there.The location is great, the family room where we stayed is pretty cool and we enjoyed the warm beds so much ( when we got to Seoul temperatures were really low).Also the landlord left us water and snacks, we had Internet and the connection was really...

We stayed in the Family Room for a week with our 3 and 5 yo children, and we loved the place. If you follow the instructions on the website, it's pretty easy to find. It's located in the Bukchon Hanok Village, which is a quiet neighborhood, but at the same time it's very near Anguk subway station and close to... More

It's comfortable lodging but hard to find. It has traditional setting but no interaction with the owner. You need to call the owner to ask for directions. The room has heater which was beneficial for us.

I stayed with my son in the Family Room for three nights. This one ends up to be really pretty spacious I thought. The kitchen had all various pans, utensils, cups and glass and the refrigerator even had some eggs, milk etc. This was great as my son and I were able to enjoy cooking ourselves breakfast there which is...

Chosen by my son who lives in Korea. We arrived early and was unable to get into the guest house. It was not until a couple of hours later that we were let in by the cleaners. Jason who is the owner arrived shortly afterwards and was very helpful. He explained that he does not live on site, but can... More

Just around the corner from the Anguk metro stop. A little hard to find the first time (although it is so close) you are advised to write down the directions from the metro stop word for word. Rooms are comfy with internet in each room. Withing (short) walking distance from Insadong. Highly recommended.

Close to transit, and a beautiful place. I loved the traditional Korean style and the neighborhood is filled with cafes and art and restaurants. The shower is a handheld sprayer and we had separate single beds, but I was fine with both of those. Plus, and this was a huge bonus to us - you have computer and internet in... More

The place was quite hard to find, but upon calling them, the owner kindly offered to meet us at the metro exit. The rooms were a positive surprise, although sleep quality will depend very much on your neighbors as the walls are literally paper-thin! (We were lucky!) The area is nice with galleries and coffee shops. As a whole, the... More

Contrary to some people's experiences here, my stay at this guest-house was just fine. I booked it over the phone a day before going there and the owner Jason let me check in 2 hours before the usual check in time. Somewhat shy, but helpful and laid back - he was ready to offer a welcome coffee and snack. During... More

I'm afraid I cannot recommend this guesthouse because I never actually got to stay in it. I booked three nights on the internet and received two confirmations. We arrived at 5pm (we hadn't arranged an arrival time with the owner) to find the front door locked. We went and left our backpacks in a cafe and wandered around Insadong. Returned... More
