I've stayed at Cheong Yeon Jae Hanok in May 2019 with my boyfriend and it was our best stay experience! The hanok is lovely, we've been upgraded since the premium room was available. The two ladies welcomed us with a Korean tea and snacks and were the kindest people we've met! They took pictures of us in traditional Korean hanbok and we kept good memories! The breakfast is one of the best we've had in our 2-weeks trip. The location is great to visit Bukchon Village, the cultural parts of Seoul, for example the famous temples around. I definitely recommend the experience :)
Dear Andrea Thank you very much for your time for review. It was also our pleasure to having you as our guest and hope you had a safe trip back to your country. We really hope this visit could be another chance to look into genuine Korean culture this time. We look forward to seeing you in the near future. Thank you once again. Best regards, Cheong Yeon Jae
Perfect location, wonderfully helpful , friendly and efficient staff, delicious breakfast. Rooms are small but has everything one needs for comfort - and a whole lot of atmosphere. If you think the Hanok area is only for tourists, think again: what makes this area so attractive to stay in is not only the traditional houses, great museums and palaces, but also because it is a true hang-out place for the local Seoul crowd. Most of its restaurants and cafes are filled with locals! Thank you, Cheong Yeon Jae Guesthouse, for a wonderful stay!
Dear Linawati We are grateful for your valuable review and compliments about your stay. It was also such a pleasure getting to know you. We were inspired by you attempting the Korean culture and traveling. You really know how to get into the new world. We really look forward to having you in the near future. Thank you once again. Best regards, Cheong Yeon Jae
Clean And beautiful hanok with great customer service”
We loved the hanok room and setting. The main reason for choosing this hanok was that the shower had a curtain or screen that separated it from the rest of the bathroom (photos of many other hanoks showed the shower almost on top of the loo). The staff goes beyond expectations to make you welcome and help with anything you may need. The price of the hanok was more expensive than most hotels, but we wanted to have the experience of staying at one of them. The rooms are also much smaller than most hotels, so make sure you know what to expect before booking it.
Dear Vanessa Thank you very much for your kind and detail review!. We think this will be very helpful to other guests who are going to stay in our hotel. As Hanok was a real house for one family a very long time ago, you may feel room a little bit narrow. We totally understand your feeling but we hope that you had a cozy and Korean traditional experience with us. Thanks again and have a wonderful day :) Best regards, Cheong Yeon Jae
A perfect hanok ”
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night and we had a really great time here. The house was very traditional yet neat and clean, each room has its own bathroom. The staff, Julie, was really friendly and helpful. She even offered us free hanbok for photo-taking in the house. The breakfast was simple yet delicious. The house is located in hanok village, where you can visit lots of historical sites nearby. You can take a 5-10 minutes walk from the metro station and there is a convenience store near the house. I would definitely recommend it to travellers who would like to experience living in a hanok, just like the characters in Korean drama!
Dear Pui Happy new year :) We hope you and your boyfriend have started a wonderful new year. Thank you very much for the detailed review. It was such a pleasure getting to know you and we were also so happy to see your smiley face during your stay. I would like you to remember Cheong Yeon Jae for a long time when it comes to travel to Korea or experiencing Korean traditional culture. We will look forward to your next visit in the near future. Thank you once again and have a great weekend! Best regards, Cheong Yeon Jae
A good place to stay”
It's a wonderful experience to stay in this Hanok. The staff here are sweet, nice and helpful. They provided additional service which I didn't expect, like greeted us and provided hot tea whenever I came back to the Hanok. The breakfast was good. The place was clean. And you don't have to worry about the cold weather because the room is well-equipped with modern heating system. The location of the Hanok is good; it's just a few minutes walk from Anguk Metro Station, a few minutes walk to restaurants and 10 minutes to tourist spots. To conclude, you won't be disappointed to choose this Hanok.
Nice and warm in winter”
This place is close to the main road, so rolling your luggages in was not a problem. Some hanoks could have cobbled-stoned paths so it is not as easy to bring your luggage in. The room is clean and simple. A real cultural immersion as you get to enjoy a authentic breakfast made by the ladies in the kitchen and try on hanbok for you own photoshoot experience. It is slightly pricey but if you consider the tips you get from the girls for travelling around and getting help ordering food (best fried chicken ever) in the middle of the night, it's all worth while. We all had fun rolling on the hot floor. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay comfortable.
Charming and good location”
The staff that works here is wonderful. So helpful with directions and recommendations. The facilities are clean and charming. The inner courtyard is beautiful and relaxing. There were two of us and the room that we stayed in was quite cramped with our luggage after we laid out the bedding but was fine during the day when the bedding was stowed away. For some reason, when I read that breakfast was included, I expected it to be a Korean breakfast since we were staying in a Hanok. But we were served a Western breakfast. It was plentiful and tasty, just not what I expected. Since we only stayed one night, I cannot say that the breakfast rotation does not include a Korean breakfast, that's just now what we were served.
Dear Alicia Thank you for your detailed review and we are sorry that you missed the Korean breakfast you wanted to have. We wish you could stay longer so that we can fulfill your needs. If you have another chance to visit Korea, please come and try a diversity of Cheong Yeon Jae. We are grateful for your stay once again and look forward to having you as our guest. Best regards, Cheong Yeon Jae
Great & wonderful experience”
All the service staff exceptional customer service made up for all the shortcomings for this Hanok Hotel. This Hanok Hotel did not have a television, neither do they have a radio, but all these made the stay/experience more like a time travel back to the past/olden days. Most importantly, all the service staff were such wonderful hosts, friendly & extremely helpful, it is worth a 2nd stay when I'm back in Seoul again.
Dear Geraldine Thank you very much for your detailed review. We were also grateful to have you in 청연재 and gave you a memorable experience. :) Please kindly be informed that some of our facilities are renovating soon. So, we hope that you get another chance to feel renewed Hanok style again. We will look forward to welcoming you on your next visit. Thank you ^^
Is a must try experience ”
We spent 2d1n in the guesthouse, and the rest of our trip in the other hotel nearby. Overall CYJ is a lovely guesthouse. We chose this for our first night stay because it's so beautiful. Don't worry about comfortableness in the 80-year-old building. The ondol room is attached with modern toilet. They have powerful floor heater, comfy mattress, and best shampoo ever as compared to my other traveling experience. We had complimentary hanbok session after breakfast too! The only downside is that the room is too small.
Dear Sook We appreciate your detailed review of your recent stay. As you have experienced, our hotel preserves the beauty, comfort and coziness of Hanok well. Hopefully, you get another chance to experience other rooms sometime soon. Thank you once again and look forward to having you soon. Best regards, Cheong Yeon Jae
Very easy to locate, close to Bukchon Village and Insadong. The ladies were very helpful and made us amazing breakfast. Got to try hanbok and took nice photos around the guesthouse. Love the room and it was a good experience. Highly recommended.
Excellent stay in Cheong Yeon Jae Hanok”
Rooms were pretty comfortable, clean and good. Staff are very engaging and awesome! Food was very delicious. We had checked in at 2am KST and they were still helping us sort our stay out. Definitely recommended if you want peace and quiet and if you want to feel what it is like staying at traditional guesthouses!
Dear Michi Thank you very much for your time on review. We are glad that you are so satisfied with the recent stay in our hotel. If you want to get away from your busy life and take a quiet and comfortable trip to Seoul, please come back again anytime. Thanks again and have a great day : ) Best regards, Cheong Yeon Jae
Lovely hanok experience, wonderful staff”
Really liked the ambiance, very serene. Guesthouse provides free hanbok for us to wear and take pictures. Nice traditional breakfast with rice, soup, beef patties, kimchi and fruits. The two ladies that work there are very friendly. When we were checking out they asked us for our next destination. Then they wrote down the address in Korean for us to show to the taxi driver.. It was very much appreciated.

We are very pleased with our stay for three nights at this guesthouse. A good experience of Korean traditional house, lovely and friendly staffs. Highly recommended.
very nice hanok with free hanbok experience. price at the higher side and recommended one to 2 nights stay will be good enough.
Super cute ”
We only stayed one night on a long layover, but it was super cute and we would have liked to stayed longer. The trim was cute, basic but we didn’t need much. The bathroom was nice with a good showe and heated floors throughout. We would have appreciated a mini fridge had we stayed longer. The staff was super awesome and on the whole it had a ton of character.
Dear Sarah Warmest greetings from Cheong Yeon Jae :) Hope you had a safe trip back home! We are so grateful for your detailed review and time even though that was a short stay here. Also, we are so glad that we could give you such a good impression of Hanok. We wish you could stay longer as well and will be looking forward to your next visit sometime soon! Thank you very much for visiting 청연재 once again. Best regards, Cheong Yeon Jae
Wonderful Hanok experience”
We are very pleased with our stay, it is warm and welcoming. It's a beautiful little house with modern twist in each room. Staffs are helpful and friendly. Close to train station or bus stop and famous attraction, quiet spot at night in a beautiful suburb. Feel safe and secure even when coming home late.
