(I'm 130lb & I could feel the hard floor) Neverthe less I had a good night's sleel as everything else was calm & peaceful through the night.

Super value for traditional experience ”
what I like most about this place is that he provided the floor with heat system and restroom is very clean where this place is located in the great location for you to explore Bukchon Hanok Village by day and go the other places via Anguk subway by night.
Hanok all to yourself”
I got delayed going to the place because of wrong train info from another app... i was worried not to find it in the dark as was mentioned in a previous review. i purposely booked this because i wanted to experience the Hanok Quite a Walk it was quite a walk from Anguk station exit 2 ... the street was lined with Gingko trees in full yellow... you need to check the house number because it’s sequential... you passby a GS convenience store and when you see a building with #40 the cute alley is just a few steps away. after turning right, at the end of the alley you see a large wooden gate on the left. i knocked because i couldn’t see a door bell. after the second knock someone came to the door and welcomed me. Cozy warmed floor (modernized Ondol system) i felt like i was given a much larger room. i enjoyed the warm floor, it’s warmth seeped into the futon... a curtain prevents cold air that seeped through the hanji-lined window and the glass door ... three layers in all. the room has an outlet where they graciously provided adapters. there was also a blow dryer!!! A big plus for me. You need to go out to the rest room... so i ignored the urge to void and slept soundly. The modern restroom the restroom/ shower room is just across it. it had a heater to warm up the place while showering. the warm water was consistent. Bath gel, shampoo and tooth paste can be found (bring your own toothbrush). Breakfast Alone Breakfast is from 8:30-10:30am... i felt like i was alone in the complex... i made my breakfast on my own... it was as if i rented the whole place (or maybe everyone was already out - there were 3 door bangs earlier that day, so maybe i woke up late - 7am)... Challenging check out when i was about to check out i had to knock at the door of the female neighbor since there was no one about. She accomodated me and made me talk with the owner (Noelle?) regarding check out details. Leave luggage for more sightseeing you can leave your luggage behind (leave it
My wish to stay in a Hanok house came true! The price was the cheapest among other hanok house accomodations, and it is a pretty decent guesthouse! The location is its strongest pluspoint.. it was only few minutes away from Bukchon Hanok Village, so we could reach the village very early in the morning before other tourist starts crowding the place. Changdeokgung palace is only ~10 minutes away from the guesthouse, and we also walked to Gyeongbokgung Palace.
Good location and Hanok experience ”
This is the fourth time we stayed here. Uni is very nice and helpful. Appreciate her friendship and hospitality. The rooms are very clean. Location very near palace, Insadong and Samcheongdong. Will definitely come back here.
Comfortable hanok stay”
It was awesome experience to stay in hanok. The owner was very friendly and command good english. Simple breakfast ingredients such as bread, egg and juice were provided for guest to cook. The location is good as it is within walking distance to subway. The room and bathroom are clean. Highly recommended.
Nice Experience In Hanok-Style Guest House”
The room is small but is expected. The owner waited for us at the entrance even though we arrived at night (9pm & cold in Winter!). She provided us Hot Tea and Sweet Potatoes upon our arrival. She speaks very good English by the way, and she's extremely helpful. The bathroom is located outside of the rooms. So it's quite challenging if you want to go to bathroom at night especially during Winter (super-cold!). Breakfast is kind of odd, as you have to cook it on your own. They just provide you with the tools and ingredients - eggs, breads, toaster, jam, peanut butter, etc. It's close to main attractions like Bukchon Hanok Village and about 20 mins walk to Samcheongdong-gil. Go to the Tourist Info Counter near the hotel, and you can get a map from them that shows you the best route to visit around Bukchon Area.
Traditional hanok experience!”
It's clean and tidy. The location is near the Anguk station, about 10 mins walk. Had a good hanok experience there!
Homy stay and good location”
We stayed our stay in the guesthouse. The location is good, close to subway and tourist sites. The owner, Uni, is friendly and helpful. The room is small, while everything you need is there. Bathroom is shared, but clean. Breakfast is self-served with bread, coffee and eggs. Uni have two friendly dogs in the house.
Very nice host, near Anguk Station, very traditional house, so we can try to live like Korean. Also if we spent for 2 nights or more, we can borrow hanok from the host for free, to take some pics inside the house. (The house is very photogenic). Love this place.
Feel like home”
I stayed at the middle room for 5D4N. The room is clean and cozy. The house is lovely and near the subway. If you wanna try to stay at a traditional Korean house, it’s a nice choice. The house owner, Uni is friendly and willing to help during my staying in these 5 days. She is just like a big sister, with warm smile and caring heart. I like guesthouse 201 very much and would like to come back again in my next visit to Seoul. :)
Guesthouse201 has 1. very good location(just 4~5mins from metro) 2. very warm atmosphere 3. very helpful owner. I stayed there just for one night, but actually it was too short to feel Hanok village. Strongly recommend to stay for 2 or 3 nights.
Very good location and friendly host”
Location is excellent, close to 2 palaces, Bukchon traditional Hanok village and Insadong. Hanok 201 is a simple and traditional guesthouse with no TV, rooms are not soundproof and hidden in a quiet alley. The room is cosy, mattress and blankets are comfortable, the family room for 4 people has a private bathroom but toilet is shared.
Excellent Location for Cultural & Historical sightseeing”
We stayed a night here. The room was clean & pleasant. However a point to note...the 2" thickquilt bedding (mattress ) may not be comfortable for anyone heavier than 150lb.(I'm 130lb & I could feel the hard floor) Neverthe less I had a good night's sleel as everything else was calm & peaceful through the night. Location is fantastic for those wanting to visit cultural & Historical spots. We spent the 1st evening walking down Insadong street (distance 10-15 min walk from Hanok Guesthouse 201) where there's lots of cultural craft, & korean food. Next morning, we started out early to the Gyeongbukgung Palace (20-25 min walk) and spent half a day there. Uni is friendly & helpful. Kitchen is clean & open all hours, no cooking allowed. Would recommend this place to young travellers who wish to experiencesleeping in a hanok-like place & have 1 day of sightseeing within the Insadong surrounds.
An authentic guesthouse in convenient location”
The host of the guesthouse speaks fluent English, which made us a very comfortable and we can check with her for different information. The location is quite close to subway and the community is very authentic. We enjoyed the stay there!
Great stays ever”
Uni is a great host ! She speaks fluent English. Easy to communicate and she provides useful information ! She keeps everything clean everyday. This is an very authentic Korean Building. We will definitely revisit this place.
good location, friendly host”
overall was good, however, breakfast is available but gotta cook your own. if you dont take eggs, there wasnt any other choices. There were only bread, eggs, coffee, tea, and milk. Options like ham, cheese or muesli will be good. heavy cooking is not allowed, only frying eggs.
good sleep at a homelike guesthouse”
Traditional house itself is small but everything is very well-maintained. Room, bathroom,kitchen and small yard, all of them are very clean. Beside the mainroad, but it is very quiet, so you can have deep sleep. I don't sleep well even in a very good hotel except for my own bed, but here, i had really good sleep. It can be because of the warm floor, peaceful music or homelike atmosphere. Strongly recommend who are not looking for 5 star hotels.
Nice hanok experience stay with friendly owner”
The C/in was very satisfy and is well served by the house owner, the room Is very traditional Hanok, super clean washroom even shared with others. It is just located near the police station and is in the middle of Bukchon village. Love it & strongly recommend!
Traditional Hanok experience”
I booked Guesthouse 201 for 3 nights but the host changed our room to Guesthouse 202 instead. Both 201 and 202 are traditional Hanok houses and it was a really great experience for my first trip to Korea. The house is located in a quiet pretty Hanok village and close to the subway station. The rooms are also in traditional Korean style, just like what their photos showed. But the rooms are not well soundproofed, we stayed during Christmas holiday and some other young guests were like having party overnight in other rooms so we didn't sleep well due to the noise. Other than that noisy night everything was good and it is highly recommended!!
Relaxing Korea House”
Love the music around the house and the cute puppy there. The house is not hung but totally adequate. The washrooms are clean and tidy. Wonderful experience for sleep on the floor like traditional korean.
