Lovely tranditional Korean style house”
Super helpful house owner,u an get any information u want.Lovely place to stay to explore the tranditional Korean style living.In the morning can also rent the tranditional Korean uniform for pic.Highly recommend to stay at this place.
Lucy makes sure you're comfortable”
Lucy is a very good host, taking all your needs and requests seriously. The rooms are quite comfortable. The location and price are quite good for a Hanok. You'll have to walk 8 minutes to Anguk metro station, but for staying in a Hanok, that's something you'll have to put up with. All the important attractions are nearby, including Changdeokgung, Gyeongbukgung, Bukchon Hanok Village and Insadong. The downsides - flies in the courtyard and the toilet has an unpleasant smell (but it doesn't affect the room). I would recommend staying here.
Such friendly service, you'll feel just at home!”
Love our stay at Haemil Hanok! True, location-wise, it is not the easiest to locate but it's just next door to the grand Cheongdeokgong palace so the location is great! All the rooms in the cosy hanok are filled with beautiful handicrafts and paintings. And did I mention the awesome breakfasts? The lovely host Shinsil will prepare a piping hot authentic Korean breakfast each morning - we had a comforting porridge one day and delicious bibimbap (mixed veggie rice) the next day. This is a great location if you want an authentic and charming traditional hanok stay experience.
Great Experience at Traditional Korean House”
A great culture experience staying at Haemil Hanok Guesthouse. Traditional Korean breakfast that was made by the host, Lucy, is very good. Location wise, it's very near to tourist attraction, Changdeokgung and Bukchon Hanok Village, a walking distance in fact. One good thing about Haemil is that the room comes with private bathroom, as I know that many traditional Korean houses have shared bathroom.
Wonderful experience in a traditional Korean house”
It was a memorable stay (although we only stayed for 1 night). Our host really made us feel at home. Unlike most of the hanoks which only have shared bathrooms, our family room in Haemil Hanok has an attached bathroom. It is very well located, which makes our sight-seeing and shopping very convenient.
We will consider to stay again next time”
The landlords are nice, helpful and able to communication in English. We are moved by Mrs Kim's dessert at night time! The location is a bit to find at the first time but it is very convenient for sightseeing afterwards.
Pleasant hanok experience”
Very friendly hosts. Eventhough far from the Buchon hanok area but its just within 10-15minutes walk and also to Insadong area. Hosts were very warm and friendly, even made snacks for us after a tiring shopping spree.
amazing traditional house with friendly host”
it's our first time in South Korea and our first time as well to experienced the Korean traditional house. it's a lovely accommodation with superb breakfast. the hosts are very accommodating and they speak good English as well which made our stay in their place very enjoyable. they are very helpful as well in teaching us the vicinity map. we do hope to stay again in their place on our next visit in Seoul. Thanks so much. Keep up the good work!!!
There were many many mosquitoes in our room.”
There were many many mosquitoes in our room, we got eaten real bad.
Good things: the owner of the guesthouse (ajumma) is very nice and accommodating even though she doesn't speak English. Location is really hard to find at first but it is ok when you get around. It is 7min. walk to the bus stop and the palace. Bad things: the sheets are dirty. the septic tank is reeking from the bathroom into the whole room. The room is not what we expect from the pictures. It is very expensive.
Nice quiet break from the city”
Loved the homecooked breakfasts we received both days. Floors were heated and there was an infrared heater so we were actually very warm despite the cold nights. There was no hot water in the bathroom and the water from the sink drained onto the floor. WiFi was quite fast. Only ten minute walk to two different metro stations, and easy to walk to two palaces. Nice place to stay if you just want some peace and silence for a couple days, and you don't mind sleeping on the floor/roughing it a little.
Great hanok experience”
Staying in a hanok is such a wonderful experience. Although the location is tucked in small alley, but still accessible by walking 10 minutes from Anguk Station. The room and the bathroom are quite small, but very clean. We can try to wear hanbok and also eat korean traditional breakfast which was delicious. Thank you for the warmest smile and help from our host Lucy and Penny to make our stay comfortable.
A warm host”
We stayed here one night and in the next morning we planed to go to Nami island which we need to go out early in the morning. So I sent message to ask whether I can have breakfast arround 6.30, which normally would start at 8.00. Penny, the host, is very kind to provide us breakfast at the time we requested. really appreciate that. Here is a good location considered if you wouldn't want to stay in busy tourist area. it's quiet, old town section of the city, and very close to Changdeokgung palace (which we think much more interesting than Gyeongbokgung), a short walk to Bukchon, and in walking distance to Chonggyeochon steam. I hope to have more time staying at Haemil Hanok to experience more on the Korean living style since we went out all day and come back at night.
Very friendly and great location!”
The young couple that run this Hanok are super friendly and speak great English! It is within walking distance to one of the palaces, subway, airport bus station and good shopping in Insadong. It might be a little hard to find according to the street address. Just call for directions. It is across the street from the palace and go down the street between the Hanok Village looking theater and the car repair shop. The you will see a sign for the guest house.
I feel still in the Sunny garden with smailing Lucy.”
As everone has writtem, her conversation ,cuisine ,hospitality are great. She washed and keep the socks which my daughter has been forgotten. Of course towel with cute embroidery, fabric of mattress also I like. Seoul memories is more deeply in her kindness.
Good introduction to traditional Korean home ”
Stayed for one night in the family room with my family of four. Space was a little tight, but it was a good experience sleeping on heated floor with mattresses and comfortable duvets. We appreciate the private bathroom although it is very small. The bibimbap breakfast prepared by Lucy, the young and pretty host, was delicious. We had fun dressing up in the hanboks loaned to us by Lucy, and taking pictures in the room and courtyard. :)
Not very worth of money”
We've ordered a three person's bedroom, but the space of the room is not spacious as mentioned in Agoda ( if i don't remember wrong, it is said 90 sq meters which is definitely a wrong info.; in fact the 3 single bedroom is just like 15 sq. meters). and I paid 170SGD per night for the room ( much expensive than hotels) and i don't think it is worthy. And the place is not closed to any train station, a bit troublesome to find the way. No restaurants nearby except only a small convenient store. Though the room is small for 3 persons and we can hear the voices from other rooms easily, it is clean and the landlord provides good service.
Great Hanok Experience”
We only stayed one night for the experience but it was fun! Lucy's English is good and there was no problem with communication. The breakfast she made us was really yummy too! We did not really sleep well because we were all not used to the heated floor but we really appreciated the heated floor since it was really cold outside!
nice stay @seoul”
Lucy is a nice and sweet girl, she prepared the korean style breakfast and suggested a great place for the sakura sightseeing. The room is lovely and clean. Very good experience from this modern korean house and we would love to come back again :)
Lucy was the best host ever!”
Lucy went way beyond any host my family has encountered! She had traditional Korean costumes of her own for my sis to try and take photos with. She woke up at 4am just to ensure that we got the taxi successfully. Can't ask for more. Highly recommended!
