Lovley spot, lovley staff.
Brilliant spoy in Seoul close to the best sites. Only word of advice check your emails often after the booking as you have to arrange a time to meet the owner to let you in. Don't just rock up expecting the door to be open. 10/10 would deffo return.

Great stay!
It was a great experience staying in a traditional hanok. The location of the guesthouse is easily accessible to gyeongbukgung station, exit 2. Outside the guesthouse also has plenty of food restaurants available. The owner is kind and nice and also speaks English and Japanese.

A warm traditional little house!
1)The interior design. 2)You have to sleep on the floor. 3)The owner let you enjoy her whole house!
Overall we love the house very much! Maybe because only us stay in the house with no other guess! Because we have to share the toilet with other guests on the first day, we feel rather uncomfortable, but on the second day only we stay inside there... And is fun! The only disappointment is the toilet... You cannot have a nice bath there. And is a very good experience to stay at the traditional house! Especially with younger children along.. You can see they are so disappointment when they step inside the house and when they get used to the house they smile! Is very warm inside! I will definitely go back again if I visiting Seoul again! And this time I will bring little gift for the owner because I never thought they are so warm and nice people. Thank you Kimchi Hanok Guesthouse made my Seoul Tour so complete!

Good stopover
Simple, straight forward, warm
I had a short stopover and found KHG a warm (literally) and easy place to be while being near Kyungbok Palace and a nice food centre.

Great location, hot Ondol room
You can experience real HanOk
Room was small but nice and cozy. Since we checked in with 2kids the owner(who was friendly) gave us extra room free of charge! There were all the bathroom products(like shampoo, body cleanser, make up cleanser, hair dryer, comb...) in the restroom. They weren't like hotel quality but consider the price, it was worth it. Rooms were very worm and sheets were clean. It might not easy to find if you can't read korean.

Feeling at home
I don't really expect it going inside KIA tunnel. However, it is really feeling like home finding this hanok makes me feel like I'm living in korea. Plus the necessities you all need you will find there. It's just too cold in the bathroom even though have heater inside. Makes me worry if I wet it with the shower.

A taste of the olden day Korea
Location, spacial and worth the price
If you are looking for a traditional stay in Korea, a good location with good price and a good service, this is where you are looking for. Come and try especially during the winter season. The wooden heater flooring is the most warming place to lay on.
