Nice experience
Location
We like the experience of living in a Hanok. It is interesting. The western breakfast is simple & nice. Never meet Mr Lee & the lady staff is friendly. Love that it is near Isadong.

Great experience, however no air-cond
different experience
Air conditioner disconnected due to travel beginning of November. Floor heating was at full blast. Room was too hot to sleep in, only window had mosquito netting which was not enough to cool the room down, doors to room cannot be locked. Other guest returning to hanok at late and different hours will not be easy for light sleepers, in fact any single movement in the compound can be heard.

Simple, clean, conveniently located
Location, access to clean bathroom, friendly owners
The room was clean and we had easy access to the bathroom. However, it would have been nice to have a more pleasant shared seating area in the courtyard, eg. more comfortable seating. Also, we did think breakfast was very basic and had expected something more traditional. The owners were very nice and super helpful, though, even with booking outings and sorting out transport to the airport.

Terrific Hanok Near Insa-dong!
Amazing owners, perfect central location, authentic hanok experience.
This was my second time staying at Namhyundang Hanok and I can't imagine staying anywhere else on my next visit to Seoul. The owners truly make you feel like friends visiting their home rather than guests staying at a hotel. They will do anything to make both your stay with them and your visit to Seoul more enjoyable, including helping out with transportation and planning. They speak very good English, and I believe the gentleman speaks German as well. The Hanok can be tricky to find the first time, but the location is perfect. It's only a few minutes walk from Insa-dong, palaces and temples, and multiple Metro stations. This is the place to stay if you want an authentic hanok experience!

a delightful and unique experience
located in the area of cultural sites; accessible to public transport and shops; and staying there gave us a first hand experience of korean culture.
My children and I enjoyed our stay in the family room which was warm and comfortable in its own unique Korean way. We appreciated the gentle hospitality of the owners and staff. This hanok homestay is a must for those who want to experience Korean culture. It added beautiful memories to our trip and we will definitely recommend this hanok to other travelers to Seoul.

Perfect location with perfect hosts
Location, warmth, tourist information available
Our stay was excellent. The location is closer to the Insadong shopping street than most Hanoks, that are up near the palace in a hipster trendy area. Instead, we were near local restaurant and bars, between 2 metro stations providing access to four lines (including the one to Gimpo airport), and still close enough to walk to the hipster trendy area ;)
