      Great traditional stay”
      It was great to show the kids a traditional Korean house. Sleeping on futons was such a different experience. We spent 3 nights here. The staff were amazing. She even drove us to the bus stop at 4.30am when she couldn’t get a taxi for us. The location was excellent. Room clean and nice shower. Would definitely recommend for a traditional stay.

      Cultural experience”
      Attentive and friendly staff, interesting ondol flooring system, pretty cafes/restaurants nearby
      Highly recommended for chinese-speaking, because the staff there speak Chinese very well and there was not an issue at all communicating. Minibuses were a saviour after tiring days of too much walking around. Transport was very convenient, Anguk station. Very near to Insadong as well, we dropped by almost everyday to do a little shopping. Wifi worked very well for us. We stayed in the biggest family room they had, one thing to note is that the bathroom isn't in your actual room, and halfway during our trip apparently the other guests used our bathroom as well (would've appreciated it if the guesthouse staff enforced stricter regulations regarding this). Also, the toilet was really narrow and the heating system isn't very good/consistent, hence more troublesome to wash-up during winter (especially since the 'private' toilet isn't actually in your room). Ondol & comforter was sufficiently warm enough to sleep, and even sleeping on the floor got rather comfortable after a couple days of stay. Would definitely recommend this place to others!!!

      The family was reallly friendly. Their niece working there could speak good chinese and english. Beakfast provided by the grandmother was halthy and delicious. She even prepared food according to yor preference. Grandfather there is so friendly, even though he cant speak good english. He will use actions to replace the words. Totally had fun there. Just that the room is a little too small.

The friendly and endearing owners prepared delicious Korean breakfasts on both days and that's really our highlight of the trip! Love the pictures we took with the hanboks provided too!

      Traditional Korean House Style. Nice Family Home Stay
      Quiet and Nice Place to stay. Family running and give a warm home atmosphere with home made breakfast served. Located in Bukchon. Thus it is nice to walk and sightseeing around. Yet, it is close to Inssadong and can reach the city by 10 minutes walk. As it needs to be quiet at night and there is no TV, it will be more suitable for adults and well behaved kids.

      Only 1 night stay in MARU gave us wonderful memories and taught us KOREAN traditional culture. Traditional Korean style house, ONDORU(warm floor), Korean breakfast and Hanbok(costume). We can never forget to wear HANBOK. Very beautiful and good quality costumes.We enjoyed taking a photo. And noteworthy fact is the owner "omoni" and staffs welcomed us warmly like a family. We recommend this guesthouse to all travelers to want to experience Korean traditional culture.

      Great homemade breakfast, friendly host & great experience of Hanok stay
      Our 3 days stay was wonderful with great homemade breakfast being served. Great place to experience hanok stay. Like the surrounding with nice landscape, good scenery and lots to explore in the Bukchon village.Even the restaurants & shops around the area are worth patronising. The host are friendly and warm. They treat us like friends and even send us to the airport bus stand. Probably the only complaints is on the small room size.

      This is our first time visit Seoul. I travel with 3 others girls, the staff is really Helful. The homemade korean breaksfast by the landlady Is very yummy. Her son is the one who help us to book a minibus with a local driver to go to Nami Island, La Petite France, etc.  Before we check out, they even let us to try a Hanbok (Korean Traditional Outfit) for Free.  P.s. There's a lot of Guesthouse there, so make sure tell the Taxi Driver it's "Bukchonmaru" not the "Bukchon Guest House". Because, at the first time we got there, the taxi driver drop us in the wrong place.  Althought we just stay 1 night in Bukchonmaru Hanok Guesthouse, we really hv a blast there.

      The layout of this house, the friendliness of the host, the environment it locates.
      The stay is truly unforgettable with good memories. The first look of the house makes you get ready for the authentic korean lifestyle. It satisfied you from the bedding, decorations, to breakfast. We were luckily enough to able to join and witness the making of soy sauce and say paste. You are guaranteed by knowing how healthy the food they make out from and you would feel very much refreshing during and after the stay.

      The hosts of the Bukchon Hanok Guesthouse were warm and welcoming. The rooms were cozy and like what would find in the country side of South Korea. The hosts cooked a traditional Korean breakfast with lots of veggies, rice and soups. For the western traveler, read up on Korean bathrooms; they are small and do not come with a bathtub shower. Great stay, warm people- hope to bring more friends in the future.
