A good place to enjoy Korea”
Booked the largest room for 4 including a living room. I have to say something about the owner couple first. The gentlemen doesn't talk a lot but always very helpful. The nice lady is such a warm-hearted lady. She told us they used to live in Qingdao for 5 years. She prepared us very nice breakfast with homemade bread and soup, she invited us to see the sunrise in the early morning with her, even if we didn't join due to our laziness... She help us take a lot of picutres and had them print out nicely. The hanok is located in the centural, easy to get to the metro station and other attractive spots. Seperate bath room was a bit inconvinient but not a big problem if you want to experience the local accomadation. Will choose to stay here again if chance is given.
Far location from the attraction”
it is far away from the subway hwehwa station, not convenient for back packer
Friendly owner but distant location”
Hanok Eugene's House is great if you want to experience a night or two of authentic hanok accommodation. But I wouldn't recommend staying for longer than two nights. The location of the hanok was about 10-15 minutes walk from Hyehwa station - it's quiet at night so be aware if you're traveling alone or if female in pairs. The downside about Eugene's House is the room might be smaller than you expected. I had a double bedroom with a private bathroom - it was so small that my friend and I literally either sat on the beds or have us standing in the tiny bathroom. There was barely any space in between for our suitcases. But with the cost of our stay, I think it's acceptable. Another thing is the hygiene, the private bathroom is clean. But the authentic Korean-styled decorations might be left with some dusts and the corners of the room might not be entirely swept clean. However, the owners of the House are very helpful. The lady (I guess she's Eugene?) speaks fluent Mandarin and partial English. She took lots of photos for us when we arrived at the Hanok and even printed a nice one for us as souvenir. She helped us to call a taxi and made sure we arrived at wherever we wanted to. We really appreciated her help. Overall, Eugene's House is worth of a try!
Great experience, recommended to all”
Hanok Eugene's house is a great choice for people who want to experience traditional cultural stay instead of other normal and typical hotels. The owners are friendly and gave us a lot of useful information. We stayed in the triple room with a bath room attached, so it's really convenient for us. We are not sure about rooms with shared toilet though. It's really comfortable to stay there and traditional breakfasts were serve every morning with breads as well. Besides that, the owner printed out 3 photos of us in the hanok and gave us as gift/ souvenir, which made us felt really warm and sweet. Overall, it's a nice place to stay but people with back problems are not recommended to stay here.
walk about 10 minit out , many shopping and many food to eat,many cosmetic to buy and more cheap and more gift they free.
Outstanding considerate personal service”
I had a very early morning flight and still was able to obtain some breakfast. The service from this family run hotel was wonderful The hanok is in a side street so take care to follow directions if you are walking there from the subway.
Nice and helpful owner. Cozy and cultural house”
It is a nice experience of Korean Traditional Culture.
reasonable price, friendly staffs, nice building.”
First of all, this is a home stay, just like a B& B, so don't expect anything, just feel the local culture and warm welcome of staffs. The building is really good, the garden is beautiful, although the room is really small, and i guessed last guest smoking inside the room , therefor i can smell it, I smoking too, but i hate ppl smoking inside the room. when I first arrive i can't find the building, a restaurant owner nearby saw me and asked me if i am stay in the eugene's house, he was very friendly to bring me to the eugene's house. And it was a sunday noon, so the "eugene mama" was actually in church. If you are plan to visit eugene's house in sunday, go there after church time. Wifi is good, breakfast is also good. nice place to experience Korean culture. (If you take metro then transfer by bus, DO show the map of Eugene's house from their website, otherwise you will have a hard time to find it. near by landmark is a school building with olympic sign.
Comfortable, cosy and great experience ”
Located near Insadong, the palaces and not too far from Myeong Dong and Dongdaemun. However, as the hanok is not located along the main road, some cab drivers have problem locating, will be helpful to have the address on hand for them to locate using the GPS. Lady owner is very friendly, makes nice breakfast and, can speaks other languages such as, English, Mandarin and Japanese. Also helpful in recommending places to visit and restaurants. Great experience of Korean style house, family room is nice with 2 bedrooms and a living room. However, the washroom for family room is located outside (beside) the rooms, so a little inconvenient especially with elderly, but there are other rooms with washrooms located within though. The hanok is nicely decorated with traditional stuffs, rooms are well maintained and clean.
handy location, comfortable place”
I liked this place and was happy to stay there for a few days when I arrived in Seoul - I also booked to stay again on my way out. It's very convenient for the main palaces and is about ten minutes walk from a busy area with lots of coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. I found the owner very helpful - he helped my book my flight to Jeju and did my laundry for me. The only problem was finding the place, which I did with the help of various people on my way from the airport and finally a taxi driver, who actually rang him, so he could come and get me. This happened at around 1.40am and we had to get him out of bed!
location is not that good, though not far from the subway station, it's very difficult to find out, even by taxi driver. room is very very small, just as a guest house, even smaller, but the price is much more higher than guest house, not valuable. no air condition, so if stay there in winter, it's really freezing. the breakfast is pretty good, korean style, taste good, made by madame.
Lovely place, authentic Korean House”
I love my stay here at Eugene's House. The place is near the palaces.
Worth to try 1-2 nights”
The owners of the guest house are so nice. They can speak English, Korean, Chinese and Japanese. They also provide helpful travel information to us. The environment is quiet and beautiful. But it is so far away from subway station
Unique experience when you're in Seoul”
i stayed her 2 days during my first trip to seoul. it was a very pleasant experience to see and experience the korean way of living in a tradional hanok! the room was very clean and i like the wooden floors. since the big family-room was available during our stay, we got an 'upgrade'! the host was very friendly and the environment is very quiet.
Adorable salle de bain minimaliste et le tout le nécessaire pour un voyageur !”
Le personnel très serviable m’a attendu malgré mon changement de vol, et m’a même indiqué un excellent restaurant. Il y avait des adaptateurs pour les prises japonaises ! J’aurais vraiment aimé pouvoir rester plus longtemps ! À refaire donc pour une prochaine fois !! Possibilité de se rendre à pied au Changgyeong Palace depuis l’établissement ! PS : la petite salle de bain coréenne était vraiment adorable !
C'est beau c'est bien”
C'était le dernier hôtel du voyage. On avait déjà fait une hanok au début du séjour. Celle là est plus typique, un vrai effort a été fait au niveau de la déco. Comme pour les autres Hanok, faut pas être claustrophobe. La chambre sert juste à s'allonger pour dormir. Je pense pas que c'est le meilleur des emplacements, mais c'est un bon emplacement pour visiter Séoul. D'une manière ou d'une autre, il faut se mettre à l'intérieur de la vieille ville. Et cette Hanok s'y trouve. Donc bien.
Hanok traditionnel magnifiquement decore”
Une nuit passée dans ce coin de Corée ancienne ne plein cœur de Seoul. Les chambres sont conformes a ce que l'on trouve dans un hanok (typique, petite, avec un matelas fin, mais confortable), le décor est traditionnel avec plein d'objet ancien. Je recommande ce hanok pour les jeunes touristes voulant un point de chute dans un quartier calme, avec une station de métro a proximité et cherchant la typicite!
仁川からリムジンバスで一本だし、市内循環バスもあるので恵化や大学路に出やすく、4号線でミョンドンもソウルも行けるから、意外と交通の便はいい。しかし坂が多いので大荷物の人にはお勧めできない。虫がダメな人も。ハエがすごい多い。 オーナー夫妻は優しくてとてもよくしてくれたが、お母様が熱心なプロテスタントの方で、日曜は教会に連れていかれ滔々と説法？を聞かされる(→耳馴染みない故の感想)。出掛ける予定がある場合は特にモタモタしないほうがいい。 せっかくいい気分で泊まれていたのにこういうところが残念。まあ、アクティビティと思えばいいのだろう…… 朝食には家庭料理が出るので、よくも悪くもホテルではなかなか味わえないいい経験になる。周りもとても静かでクラクションも聞こえてこないので落ち着ける場所。しかし前述の事があるのでもうリピートしない。
