Kok K. Families with older children Australia, August 30, 2015
like part of family

nostalgia, warm host, great breakfast
we felt very welcomed by the host, Mr Kim, and his wife. His grandchildren visited on a Sunday and they were super friendly too. Mr Kim spent time chatting with us and other guests, his Mandarin and Japanese were good. Breakfast was more than amazing! This hanok has been featured in some Korean movies, like "Miss Granny". The only downside was the bathroom with a musty smell due to lack of ventilation.
