I've researched quite a lot of hanoks for my first visit to Seoul. This one, although on the pricey side, offered everything I was looking for: history (it is listed as a heritage site in Korea), en suite bathroom (essential), beautiful architecture and landscaping, and...More
Everything is positive for me. Its loction is abuslutely good, because the hotel is surrouded by old Bukchon Hanok village and close to palaces.
Korean traditional food such as Samgyetang, rice porridge with Abalone is very
tasty, because all cooking ingredients is from Andong or...More

After navigating our way through some private houses in Bukchon, I knew we were pretty near to Rak Ko Jae Seoul after walking passed the elementary school.

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.

The bathrooms are actually clean, well equipped with amenities, and don't smell (bathrooms state is something I always check when out traveling). They might not be as spacious as well-established hotels but they are very clean. Even the toilets are similar to those you'd find in Japan (fancy side remote panel)

At the Incheon International Airport, proceed to Exit #5 and take the No. 6011 limousine bus. The bus will pass through downtown Seoul and drop you off at Anguk subway station. It will take approximately 1 1/2 hours from the Incheon Airport to Anguk station.
The closest subway station is Anguk Station Line 3 (Orange line).
Once you arrive at Anguk station, proceed to the No. 2 exit of Anguk station where a Dunkin Donuts shop is on your right. Walking north for about 250m, you'll find the Bukchon Tourist Information Center near Jae-Dong elementary school. At the Information Center, please ask the staff for directions or call us at 02-742-3410. RakKoJae is just 150m away.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
From everyone over at Rakkojae.
