                First Experience Hanok Stay”

                Friendly, Good For First time Experience

                We went there during winter, and i must say, the location was really hard to get there. It is located near Bukchon Tourist area. The subway station is about 15 min walk. And when it is in the night, that area is quite deserted. We took cab to the guesthouse. but even the taxi driver couldnt find where is the location. There is a few steep slope near the guesthouse. and its really painful to drag the lugguage all the way up there. When we reach there, the owner of the house was out. Luckily there is a passerby, who helped us called the owner and we manage to get in. We were asked to choose any rooms when we get there. so for the first night we stayed in the mega big room for 6 people instead for 2. After a few hours, the owner then only came back. The room was warm, with warmer on the floor. and the owner prepared breakfast for us every morning. On the last stay of our stay, he even offered to bring out lugguage down the slope and help us get a taxi.

                Location in Old city / traditionnal family athmosphere / Helpful owner

                The room is very small, Korean Hanok style and you sleep on the floor with no particular storage space for luggage etc ... but traditional Korean B&B style with good local breakfast and very helpful owner. Note the directions on the map site are wrong (located on the left side of main road and not right), difficult to find first time and steep climb on road if you have big luggage. I arrived around 23h, got lost and had to be helped by local Korean who called the house owner (doesn't speak english) who picked me up with my luggage. Was very helpful as I couldn't find it, even with GPS and google map if not :)

                very clean, friendly owner, lovely traditional area

                I took my one-year-old twins with some family and friends all 6 of us staying at this guesthouse for 3 nights. It was very clean and the owner was kind enough to switch us to a bigger room with shower/toilet. The breakfast was very healthy and all home-made with fresh fruits. The owner was very helpful with our luggage and the gigantic baby stroller. We had a wonderful time there. The only disadvantages would the steep slopes and that it was difficult find. But I guess that`s what makes Bukchong/North village so special.

                Great experience – but not for everyone”

                A chance to get to know Korean family life; a beautiful building with wonderful courtyard; super-wifi

                We thought we would love the experience of staying in a hanok, and we did – but for us, it didn’t work out to stay more than two nights. There was simply too little privacy. (The owner is a wonderful guy, but in the end we couldn’t stand having him right behind us looking, whenever we would sit in the beautiful courtyard with a book or computer. We also thought we disturbed the family, when we went to bed later then them.) Also, we just realized we are too unfit sleeping on the floor, and having to walk steep uphill to get home; also we needed more privacy – so in the end we changed to a hotel. Staying in a hanok really is a fabulous experience, and for many visitors to Seoul it is the most perfect thing you can opt for. But visitors should realize this is much more like ”a family-stay” or ”a home-stay” then living in a guest-house or a simple hotel – you really must enjoy and have time for the interaction with your hosts (and with other guests) in order for it all to work! If you want to stay in a hanok, this is a good option – even though we would have preferred staying in a larger hanok setting with more privacy.

                Host was very welcoming but with very limited English. Place was very hard to find. Tea and coffee freely available with fresh fruit and toast for breakfast. Stayed for several days and mixed with an interesting variety of people from different countries. We had to change rooms after the first day, there was some pressure on rooms which were traditional Korean style (hanok = sleep on the floor which had underfloor heating). Meals taken together in communal area. Host served us with breakfast at 6am and drove us to a nearby metro station to make sure that we were on a direct line to the airport which was very kind. No refund for leaving a day early (for family reasons).

                Amazing experience of a traditional Korean Hanok”

                The room was spotlessly clean, the proprietor was extremely friendly, and the location was great, being in the historic Bukchon village, close to Insadong, sightseeing and metro.

                We stayed here for three nights in April, myself and my 13 year old son. This was a really interesting place to stay, being a traditional Korean House, built in the old style around a little courtyard, with sliding wooden paper lined doors and shutters Our room for two of us was very small, I would estimate about 6ft by 8ft, so not a great deal of space. We slept on the floor, on traditional mat bedding, which I was a bit apprehensive about, but infact it was much more comfortable than I had thought it would be, probably helped by the very warm heated floor. The room had a small attached bathroom and both were spotlessly clean. The proprietor spoke no English at all but we manage fine, finding a way to communicate despite the lack of language and he was very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was taken in the family room, sitting on the floor around a low table with other guests. We were offered eggs, bread and jam (no butter) coffee and tea and juice and fruit including delicious strawberries. There was a toaster and a kettle on the table so you could help yourself. The location was great, and I am really pleased that we stayed here rather than in a more anonymous western style hotel.

                The host was extremely friendly and hospitable, though, he did not speak any english. Fortunately I was traveling with a Korean friend, which made communicating very easy. The host even drank beers and taught me how to play traditional Korean card games! The rooms are fairly small, but very clean and standard as far as a traditional guesthouses go. This one has been newly renovated, so while it has the old world charm and appearance, it feels very fresh and clean. The Wifi is very fast. I believe that I could have stayed here even without have a korean translator, as the host was very friendly and patient. Highly recommend!

                Stayed 1 night in April 2014

                乾淨、整潔、簡單、有特色的民宿”

                地方整潔、近韓國傳統特色景點(包括景福宮、三清洞)、老板好熱心,好好人

                酒店距離安國地鐵站15分鐘路程,但民宿老板好人,熱心細心打點,又肯借私人韓服(女裝)予我們拍照留念,很親切。房間和洗手整潔乾淨,地板底有暖管,氣溫只有兩度的首爾夜晚都感覺溫暖,民宿包簡單早餐,兩款生果、麵包、杯面、咖啡等,感覺親切。建築亦有傳統特色,完全體驗到傳統韓屋之住宿。這裡亦近景福宮,走15分亦可以到達。總括而言,推介一試。

                아고다로 예매했는데, 방이 없다고 별채라며 옆에 다른 한옥 마루를 내어줬습니다. 넓은데,, 에어컨은 옆에 작은 방에 있어서 잘 시원해 지지 않더라구요.. 많이 더웠고, 아. 그 집은 마당에 불도 밤새 켜놓아야 된데서 아주 밝은 밤잠을 잤습니다.

                韩屋位于北村景点,如果坐地铁到安国站从2号出口出来 一直往前走。看见右手边有家cy便利店往它对面巷子里走就可以找到!老板人很热心,第二天还开车送我们到达目的地!如果想感受传统韩屋来这会是个很好的体验哦!

                非常不错的韩屋,主人大叔很好,就是位置不太好找,可以免费穿韩服照相,早上大叔还帮忙开车去做飞机,语言什么的都不是问题的感觉,值得推荐。

                酒店老板娘人服务非常好 房间整洁干净 食物也不错

                非常好的一家酒店,就是有点不太好找,当时绕来绕去,后来问了向导走错路了。 老板会说一点简单的英文,老板娘人非常好,但是我们不会说韩语,沟通起来有一点点困难,但是不影响住宿~
