      Good enough, but no charm as expected in a hanok ”

      Location, quiet

      We traveled with 2 small children. This is a traditional hanok accomodation and it only has a few rooms. None of them have a bathroom, which is shared. Don´t expect a beautiful old fashioned hanok, it has been restored quite basically. Good location in a very lively area with plenty of local basic restaurants

      Conveniently Located, Comfortable, and Inexpensive”

      Location near restaurants, close proximity to attractions, and so close to all public transportation

      If you ever wanted to stay in a traditional Korean house---a Hanok, this is a great place to do it. Although a hanok is similar to a Ryokan Inn, it is different in that the wooden floors are heated, although now it's done with electric heat rather than wood. It's really quite comfortable. There is a plethora of things to do close by, including innumerable Korean restaurants within a 2 block area. Across the street is also a Dunkin' Donuts and a Starbucks for those needing a US coffee fix. The easiest way to get here from the airport is the No 6011 bus which costs only $10 USD. It makes much more sense than to take the train because it is quicker and almost door-to-door while the airport express train only goes to Seoul Station. You can buy a ticket at the airport and get directions and pay the bus driver 10,000 won in cash to go back to the airport. If you elect to take the subway to arrive or even while you are staying at Sejong Hanok Guesthouse, take Exit 1 or 2 from Gyeongbokgung subway station. So very convenient. Located nearby are several palaces and attractions including the "blue house" where the South Korean president lives. The US Embassy is also within several blocks. Sleeping on the floor is a novelty for some, but it grows quite comfortable. Breakfast is provided and Sunny does a good job preparing it. There's free wireless and Sunny will give you maps and tips for what to do in Seoul. The Hanok is not your place if you require a lot of space. The common living area/kitchen is where to sit and relax, but you're not in Seoul to hang out in your room. For an average $50, it's a bargain. I would definitely go back here. E-mail Sunny or find Sejong Guest House on Facebook for specific directions. Room Tip: I would recommend one of the two rooms attached to the living area/kitchen.

      The staff is helpful and kind. But the traditional way to sleep in Korea is so hard. There is only a thin Futon on the floor (which is warm) Worth to try it.

      ハノック式の建物に宿泊したいと思いこちらのゲストハウスに宿泊しました。宿泊前に北村周辺を観光したので、ハノック式の住居に宿泊できることはとても期待していました。なので、そういった建築の部屋に宿泊できたことは満足です。ただ、それ以外のサービスは普通のバックパッカーむけのゲストハウスなので、期待が大だったけにちょっと残念でした。スタッフの方は親切に対応してくれましたが、必要最低限の対応でした。ホテルに泊まりにいったというよりは、友人の家に遊びに行ったという感じでした。

      完全沒辦法洗澡,因為水完全是冷的, 零下2度,只能去汗蒸幕洗澡, 遇到過年期間,完全沒遇到民宿服務人員, 第一天入住時還不知道我們有預訂, 幸運遇到韓國人借手機給我們打電話聯絡, 不然一家子還不知該如何是好, 而且還好早到,不然差點被其他訂房的人搶了房間, 隔天其他房的人告訴我們, 本來民宿主人答應他們給他們大房間, 後來才知道有我們入住,沒給他們換房, 一家4口住小房間,我們大概會氣炸吧! 因為小房間真的超級小我們只能會疊的吧!
