    Comfortable hanok guesthouse close to the palaces”

    I stayed at Ohbok Hanok Guesthouse for 2 nights and it was a great experience staying at a traditional house...the ondol heated floor is interesting. The place is along a small street and you might miss it the first time. However, massive plus points as the guesthouse is minutes away from Gyeongbukgung and walking distance to the Bukchon village and 10 mins to Cheongdukgung. I enjoyed my stay.

    Excellent Korean Staycation! ”

    Location, Clean, Safe & Secured

    Since we were really looking for a Hanok/Korean Traditional homestay, we based our judgment on the reviews and we made the right choice! Walking distance to the top tourist attractions like National Museums & Parks, Palaces, Bukchon Hanok Village. Quite near downtown proper Myeongdong. Super accommodating Manager and Oma. Very clean and organized rooms. Unlimited drinking water hot/cold. They cook/serve breakfast too & w/ unlimited fast WIFI. They help you on where to go and give you maps. If you're traveling from the airport via Bus or Train, go down to Anguk Station, walking distance to the area of Gyeongbokgung Palace about 5-10mins, before reaching the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Seoul you must see the street of this homestay. It should be easy to find. They arrange also transportation if you wish so. Also, the manager makes a very nice personalized special printed shirt that you could order for use/souvenirs. I definitely recommend this place and would go back again with my family & friends. We had a fantastic staycation here! (Stay & Vacation) Thank you so much too Agoda.

    If you want to try Korean style old house, this one is very easy to go to 三清洞 ,景福宮 and 仁寺洞. And can get a lot information and help from the guesthouse owner. Never tried to use subway, but it is very convenient to use taxi to other places. If you have at least three people, the prices are acceptable.

    Great host, Great location, Great value for money!”

    If you would like to experience living in a traditional hanok house and sleep on a heated ondol, then this is the place to stay! The host is extremely nice and friendly and I don't think I would have enjoyed Seoul as much if it weren't for his great advices on places to go to. I went to great local restaurants as well as the touristy must-go places. The location is also close to the Gyeongbukgung palace and the national folk museum which are nice places to look at. It is also close to the bukchon hanok village and ihwa-dong mural village. Breakfast was provided in the morning as well and so is laundry service. If you would like, you can also borrow the host's bicycle to get around. Highly recommended! Thanks Jung Su for the great Seoul experience!

The rooms are always clean and the guesthouse is walking distance from major points of interest (e.g. the palaces, Insadong. I also recommend checking out the contemporary art museum nearby).

    Great host, fantastic location, close to subway

    We intended on staying 3 days but have elected to stay for the entire trip instead. Host is kind and has shown us good places to go, suggested itineraries that have worked out really well, and assisted us in his own time to help arrange a ski trip and other tours. We took the room with private bathroom which was really good being winter and all. The wifi is great and there is a tv with English channels available. It is really close to Hanok village, Anguk Station with many places to eat, little markets everywhere and also near the palaces. I would definitely recommend this place for both short or longer stays in Korea.

A walking distance from insadong, etc. and we even walked to Changgyeong Palace anyway. very easy accessible. Guys, make sure you walk up the Lovely owner Mr. Lee was very very very very kind. He kindly sat with us almost half an hour to explain recommended places to visit, he made us breakfast, he helped us with airport shuttle reservation (we kept changing our plans and he had to made like 5 calls I feel really bad for him) and the best of all he upgraded our room for free.

    If you are looking to stay in a hanok while in Seoul, I would highly recommend Ohbok Guesthouse. The host is extremely kind and helpful. He even let us keep our luggage there for an extra night while we stayed at a jimjilbang, and he cooks breakfast for you each morning. The hanok is conveniently located near several of the palaces and is pretty close to Anguk station. Overall, I would certainly stay here again and recommend the hanok experience to anyone looking to travel in Seoul.

    the best homestay to experience in seoul”

    clean, cosy, friendly

    6 of us stayed in Ohbok Hanok for 6 nights and we had a wonderful and pleasant experience, thanks to the friendly host and his mother. The host speaks English and recommends a lot places for us to visit with maps on hand. The place is clean and cosy with breakfast and towels provided. You will be given a lock and keys to your room and host is always around, so you know your stuff are safe inside your room. Attractions such as palace, museum, and amenities such as shopping, dining, and the subway was within walking distance. Other popular spots are also within a few subway stations away which was really convenient. The host also helped us book a good and comfortable taxi to drive us to the airport. Overall we had a fun and homely stay at the hanok. We would highly recommend anyone to come and stay to have a unique experience of homestay in seoul.

    It is an excellent experience to live in traditional Korea style guesthouse. It is very close to Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Village, and near the subway station, line 3, Anguk Station with about 5~8 min. walking distance. The guesthouse staff is very nice, every morning, he will prepare the detailed map of recommend route, it is very helpful for us, he can speak good English. The grandma will prepare the breakfast every morning, though it is simply, but has the family feeling. In a word, if I will be back to Seoul, will live it again.
