        Gung Hanok is currently managed by Chinese, no longer Korean. If you booked a room with breakfast, must inform them (simple chinese breakfast), otherwise you get nothing. The only pro is they provide free hanbok for photo taking (within hanok area).

        Hanok, kind owner and local Korean atmosphere !!

        The best owners we ever had they were very hospitable and assisted us with planning where and how to go to the place we wanted to visit. The owners also make great tradisional Korea breakfast which were super nice. The owner also helped us to order Korea famous fried chicken for our supper when we request to. We are extremely grateful for all that he had done for us. Gung Hanok Guesthouse is located a few minutes walk from exit 5 at Jongno 3-ga Station which we can direct transit at the main station (Seoul Station) from the airport. The location is in a quiet location between Hanok Village, Jongmyo Shrine and Changdoekgung Palace, walking distance from these sights. We even walk to Insadong and only spend 10 to 15 mins from Gung Hanok Guesthouse. There was a small supermarket near the Guesthouse too. The room were clean, tidy and provided private bathroom. Gung Hanok Guesthouse is really nice place to stay. We would definitely stay here again.

        Nice breakfast, near to metro, central to place of interest

        I find it a little difficult to give an objective review as I lost my way while trying to find my way there with the minus degree temperature. I wasn't familiar with the metro system in seoul. I forgot to turn on my roaming, so the owner could not contact me though he tried. When I eventually found the place, I found the owner waiting for us outside. Knowing how cold it was, I was grateful for his waiting. As it was really late when I arrived, the owner did not intro the place to me. The guesthouse was really small anyway. The room was small but sufficient for 3 of us. I find the floor heating not hot enough. The hot water was not reliable too. The water became cold suddenly a few times. So, it was really a cold place for me. The wife's breakfast was nice and the owner was helpful too.
