Hyosundang Guesthouse
Ranked #432 of 959 Seoul B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Last summer, I went to Korea with my family. I stayed at “Hyosundang Hanok Guesthouse” which was a Korean traditional style. This guesthouse was a family business. The owner changed his house to a guesthouse. He ran this business with his mother and wife. From Incheon airport, you can come to this guesthouse by Limousine bus number 6011. It took about 50-60 minutes.
To begin with the style of this guesthouse, it was a real Korean traditional house which was very beautiful and cozy. All things around me like in the Korean series. You can take the pictures everywhere in the guesthouse. For the staff, the owner and his family were friendly and kind. The owner can speak English with me but not fluently. Sometime, he had to use body language instead. Although his mother and wife cannot speak English, I saw that they tried to help me in other ways. For the facilities, this guesthouse had free Wi-Fi and free drinking water. You can get them all the time you want. However, there were few shared bathrooms. I had to wait other customers used them or caught them before others came. Next, the rooms were very neat and clean; however, they were small and no cleaning room service. I had to use the vacuum cleaner to clean the room by myself. And because this is a real house, there are some rules you have to follow. For example, you have to open and close the wooden door slowly because it can make loud noise. For these require, the owner will tell you all rules after you check in. Actually, the great thing of this guesthouse is near the subway and tourist attractions. For the subway, you just walk around 2 minutes from the guesthouse and you will find the Auguk subway station. For tourist attractions, there are many royal palaces and traditional villages near the guesthouse. You can walk to visit them all.
My most impression of this guesthouse is the owner and his family. They are hard-working and friendly people. They helped my sister to get the direction from Insadong to Anguk. When we needed anything, they helped us with their smile face. In the last day, they gave my family and me some gifts before we went back to Thailand. To conclude, I think this guesthouse is appropriate for people who like a traditional style and cozy air. Although there are some conditions, it is good to try!
