Hard to find the guest house for the first time

clean, tradtional
The guest house was hard to find, as it is tucked away amid other Hanoks in small alley ways. I was fortunate enough to find a very kind local person to walk me to the guesthouse, even for him whom is a local, he needs to ask around to find it at the end. I really wouldn't know how else I would of get there if it wasn't for him as I had trouble calling the guest house and getting direction from them. The lady at the guesthouse was very kind and nice and made lovely breakfast for everyone in the morning. I stayed in the single room and room door can be locked from outside. I guessed one of the other guests staying there find this very amusing and did "accidentally" locked me in the room. So I ended up calling the owner at 7am to let me out of the room. Well... at least I had a good travel story to tell after that. But overall the owners of the guest house are very nice and tried to make their guests feel welcome.

Lian H. Groups Malaysia, September 10, 2014
Wonderful Stay

Overall it's convenient
Wonderful, a very nice experience of a Korean traditional house. Host , Mr Kim and his wife is a very lovely couple. They even helped us to book tickets for a cruise which have to be bank in at a bank. We realized that Mr Kim always wait for us to return home and that always made us feel very guilty for staying out late. He is like a father ? Will definitely recommend to friends to let them experience this. Thumbs up!!!!!
