    More about Chiwoonjung Hotel

    More about Chiwoonjung Hotel

    [HOTEL_NAME]is the only hanok residence where you can feel the atmosphere of a traditional hanok in the middle of Seoul.
    Unlike other hanok hotels that were built for accommodation purposes, [HOTEL_NAME] is a place where the traditional hanok, which has been built for 100 years, is partly remodeled by the craftsmen, providing modern conveniences and preserving the traditional atmosphere.

    The traditional foods you taste from Daecheong, the scenery of the courtyard that you see there, the antique furniture and traditional props that decorate every corner, and the traditional bedding that give you a feeling of warmth, give you a whole-body experience of Korea's traditional upstream culture.
    In particular, the breakfast and dinner of [HOTEL_NAME], which chefs from Insa-dong's traditional Korean restaurant Dure, will present the best seasonal ingredients for the season, makes you feel the healing power of traditional culture.
    In addition, various traditional life and culture programs such as traditional musical instruments, painting, embroidery and sewing provide an opportunity to take a deeper understanding of Korean traditional culture.

    Located in Bukchon Hanok Village between Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung Palace, [HOTEL_NAME] is known as a well-known place for feng shui, and is also famous for the house where the former president lived before it was remodeled into a hanok residence.

    A cypress bathtub in every room and a separately arranged red clay sauna are enough to relieve fatigue and relax.
    In addition, if you ask me about Hanbok rental and airport pick-up service, We’re doing our best to offer.

    Highly recommended - best hospitality ”

    Amazing service, location and hospitality. Mr Kim and his crew were very delightful, very warming and amazing breakfast! Location was stunning - views of the traditional houses contrasts amongst the modern. Very well kept and clean. Breakfast was mouth watering. We were there for 3 nights and was served a banquet of at least 10-16 little courses each! Let’s just say it was rude to not eat, we ate it all and a 3 hour nap after each breakfast! Simply amazing!!! We would highly recommend this place and no doubt Chiwoonjung will be the only place we will ever reside when we are in Seoul the next time!

    Amazing breakfast buffet spread”

    The room is very good: it was very modern, and very warm when we were in Seoul in March (which was freezing outdoors). The location is splendid, though it is a bit of a hike up the slope in Buchon. Despite being located on a "perfect Buchon street" (i.e. populated by a million Chinese tourists), the rooms were very quiet and lovely. No sleep disturbance! But the breakfast buffet is AMAZING. It is as though a gourmet chef had prepared a whole Michelin 3-star breakfast for you!

    Poor value”

    The property certainly offers a taste of history and the location is superb. However it is not professionally managed. When we arrived we were locked outside the gate and it appeared that we were not expected. Korean breakfasts are prepared in a nearby restaurant and the food is cold by the time it is served. Since all the furniture is traditional you have to sit crossed legged on the floor which is tiring. There are no chairs. All in all it offers poor value for money.

    Unique experience money can buy”

    Architecture & facilities, foods, experience & surroundings

    It was superb ! I realize that the price was quite expensive, especially compared to similar kind of traditional inn I stayed in Japan. But well, this is authentic experience money can buy. I stay in traditional house, warm and comfortable, no worries. Everything were provided. Meals are great too. They serve full set breakfast (and dinner if you like to), heated floor, provide traditional pajamas, warm and comfortable mattresses, bathroom with traditional design, and all equipment you need. They even provided me Hanbok because I was interested to try putting it on. Surroundings were absolutely interesting to, nearby two palaces and museum, this place definitely offer a glimpse to the past. Full services and friendly staff. I feel like home. The only problem was the staff cannot speak english, only the manager can. So its bit hard when I need a taxi call. Still, I feel like one night stay in Chiwoonjung is not enough.

    A haven of relaxation”

    The hanok style rooms, the food and the service

    This hotel isn't a cheap option but if you're looking for a place to relax, eat wonderful and experience traditional Korean culture it's absolutely perfect. It's located in the Hanok district of Seoul so you are in the midst of the historic part of town. The owner kindly explained the history of the hotel and of the Hanok to me on arrival. The hotel is small and beautiful. The staff are very attentive and the traditional rooms are gorgeous. There is also a beautiful garden. The sleeping arrangement is a traditional mattress on a heated floor and is very comfortable. There was a big wooden bath tub in my room which was perfect for a relaxing soak. Tasty dinner and breakfast banquets are served in the privacy of your room, which feature a range of small dishes exquisitely presented in a range of beautiful ceramic bowls. If you want to treat yourself to a indulgent Korean cultural experience, I would very highly recommend a stay at this hotel.

    한옥 호텔이라고 듣고 인터넷에서도 조식이 맛있다 깨끗하다고 얘기를 듣고 찾아갔습니다. 기대와 달리 방안에는 모기가 굉장히 많아 밤에 잠을 설쳤구요 (2마리나 잡고 잠들었는데 아침에 일어나니 다섯군데 넘게 물렸습니다) 따뜻한 물도 안나오는 상태라 아침에야 겨우 샤워를 했습니다. 조식도 기대와 다르게 고기도 많이 질기고 생선도 비렸습니다. 침구도 냄새나고 쾌적하다는 느낌이 전혀 없었어요. 이 돈이면 그냥 다른 호텔에서 숙박하면서 편하게 그리고 깨끗하게 지내는 것이 좋을 것 같습니다. 정말 많이 실망스러웠고 마음같아서는 환불받고 싶을정도에요...ㅎㅎㅎ

    非常值得体验的精品韩屋”

    位于北村韩屋村核心地带,一座百年院落,本身也是韩国前总统入主青瓦台之前的居所,被当地人称为风水宝地。非常美丽的韩屋,外观、结构严格保留了韩屋的传统,韩纸干花贴窗,麻布窗帘,手绘推拉门……每个细节都精致。房间自带专属卫生间,可淋浴可泡澡,非常方便。虽然是榻榻米式传统床,不硬,很舒服。韩丝手绣薄被。 附近有7-11和出租精品韩服的博物馆小店。逛累了,走进宅院喝杯韩国米酿,清爽。步行到景福宫大概20分钟,路过著名的刀切面店,尝尝料足的王饺子。 小院的夜景无敌。檐上清月,檐下铜铃。听叶,赏花,就这么和时光对坐,人间四月天。 会讲中文的服务阿姨特别热情,帮忙建议行程,走的时候还一路送到大马路边,看我上车才离开。会讲英文的大叔给介绍了各个房间的用途,历史沿革。绝不能错过的早餐,整桌,一个人,肚歪。原来店主人也开传统韩食馆,难怪美味得差点咬到舌头。 春花开,夏蝉鸣,秋色入画,冬雪围炉。每个季节,都有特别的惊艳。非常值得体验。
