Reviewed March 18, 2014

Went to Seoul between 8th-14th Mar. 2014, felt so glad that we found such a nice place to stay.
Very traditional korean house (Hanok) located in Very central of the city.(Only 1stops to Gwanghwamun and 2stops to Dongdaemun if you love shopping)
Lucy, the owner she speaks Very good English and has been so helpful for us which we really appreciate. Would definitely go back and stay next time if we go bk there and I would be more than happy to recommend to all my friends to stay there.

We had our great time and good experience at this hanok guesthouse. Very clean and tidy. Warmer provided. Super nice and helpful owner who help us a lot during our trip. She prepared different type of breakfast for us everyday. Sometime we back from outside, she prepared us some snack and drink. Can speak english. She help us book ticket, taxi and order food delivery. This make us more convenient during our trip.

Great traditional hanok stay. Mr & Mrs Kim was an awesome host. Lovely Korean breakfast served and even prepared snack at night. I stayed for 2 nights. Very cozy, comfortable and clean room. Walking distance to subway and main attraction places (Changdeokgung Palace, Insadong, Bukchon Hanok Village). I'm definitley will stay here again.

My daughter wanted to try 'Dae Jang Geum" style house. And this one is excellent. The area is safe. The bus stop to/from airport is only 3 mins away. It is also within walking distance to Gyeongbokgung, Changdokgung, hanok village and insadong. The owners are friendly. Love the Korean breakfast and snacks. Plenty of restaurants nearby and subway station is also about 8-10 minutes away.
