    WONDERFUL experiences! Highly RECOMMENDED”

    We really really enjoyed our stay at Raon. The manager sent me an email w/ all kinds of useful info as soon as I made the reservation, and he greeted us at Raon at the time I requested to check in, w/ all AC on(It was such a hot day.)The location is easy to find w/ maps they provided, about 10 min or less walk from airport bus stop, no stairs. It’s super close to Gyeongbuk Palace and easy to go to Bukchon Vallage, Insa Dong, and so on. It’s very nice to take a walk in the evening, and enjoy a cup of drink at any cafe in the area. Manager also gave us a list of nice restaurants in the area, which is sooooo helpful for foodies like us. (P.s.Most instructions/info there are in multiple languages. )The neighborhood is cozy but quiet, rooms are very clean, and bedding is very comfortable. My parents were worried about sleeping on the floor, but it turned out they love it so much! For group/family travelers, family rooms are definitely recommended, cuz you also get your private bathroom and easy access to kitchen area. I wish we could stay there for a longer time. Overall, I will recommend Raon to anyone who wants to experience traditional Hanok house with reasonable price, a perfect location, and a helpful manager.

    authentic!”

    We transferred here for our last day in our Seoul vacation and it did not fail us. We had a good night rest after a very tiring day of roaming around the city. We requested to have the floor heated and it was awesome. The owner was very accomodating and helpful.He made us feel comfortable during our stay.I would love to stay longer if given the chance. And yes! the place was close to many attractions and the metro as well. The hanok experience was so real and we felt like living as locals..Thank you Raon Hanok and Mr. Ryu and wife🥰 see you again.!

    Lovely little guesthouse with awesome owner”

    I stayed for quite a long time in this guesthouse (3 weeks) so it became quite a home away from home! The facilities are of course quite basic, as you can see from the listing - you get bedding on the heated floor in traditional style, and there are three shared bathrooms (so it is unlikely that you won't be able to use one at all). I was extremely well looked after while I stayed, with Changgon going above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and had a good time! The location is great; close to the subway and right on the edge of the traditional Hanok village so it's a really nice area to stay. It would be nice if there was a little rail or something to hang up clothes while there but I expect staying as long as I did is quite unusual. Would highly recommend :)

    I stayed about 3 nights in this guesthouse. It is perfectly located to explore Bukchon as well as all the tourism spots around in Jongno. The owner is a friendly young Korean who speaks perfect English. The guesthouse includes washing machine and enough space to dry the laundry. Breakfast includes juices, coffee, bread, eggs and jam. Furthermore, the house has a nice architecture as it includes a beautiful inner courtyard. Overall, this guesthouse can be totally recommended.

    一次很贊的韓屋體驗”

    來到韓國一定要試一次韓屋。 這韓屋的位置很好,離景福宮,北村等景點很近。地鐵站也有幾個可以選擇,全部走路都能到。 韓屋屋主非常親切友善,英文很好,也很健談。韓屋屋主也會貼心的發郵件提供屋屋位置地圖。也提供很多有用的旅行資訊,完全可以不用多想行程😂。當天我比預定時間晚了到,屋主一早就把地板預熱好。這點真的十分感謝。 韓屋內就如這網站的圖片一樣,整潔度很好。基本上要用的東西也有提供,如Wi-Fi,毛巾,鏡子,掛衣的位置,拖鞋等等。韓屋樓上還有一個公共空間,可以上去做做飯或是聊聊天。韓屋內也有三個共用廁所。 但是要注意的是韓屋內在晚上十一時後要把聲量降低,房間不是太隔音。在房間內不能喝食。還有要共用廁所。 整體來說是一個很好的體驗,能在冬天躺在暖暖的地板,地理位置也十分方便,有機會會再來一次。 Thanks Raon!
