            we enjoyed our stay so much. We arrived at the mid night on the first day. Pascal greeted us and showed us the room. We love the floor heating in the room. The room is big enough to fit two of us. The breakfast was nice and we enjoyed the chat during the breakfast. We would definitely come back if we visit seoul again.

            I would like to express my sincere thanks to Pascal. We left my notebook computer in the guesthouse after we left Korea, and Pascal was so helpful to send back to us through his friend! We were so touched by this. Thank you! By the way, Pascal speaks both English and Chinese well and we could communicate ver well. The guesthouse is just a few steps from 昌德宮 and is of walking distance to 北村韓屋村,清溪川etc. Highly recommended.

Even though I mixed up the dates, the owner kindly emailed me back and changed the dates since I could not cancel via Agoda. Thank you for letting me stay!! Great breakfast with the other travellers!

            Overall the Guesthouse was good, we got the room with the bathroom inside and it was a smart choice because it's really cold in winter. The room was warm enough however the bathroom was a little cold and the hot water needs improvement. The best thing we liked was the breakfast that the owner cooked, food were all homemade and it tasted good, and we could have little chat with other guests.

            Great experience staying in traditional korean house, we booked a room with toilet but when we arrived we were told that it was not available anymore, the host did compensate us a little and let us stay in a much smaller room, we accepted it as it was difficult to find another place during their festive holiday in Oct. Overall it is okay.

            Location was abit difficult to find. We got lost and wondering around that area in early morning with very cold weather outside. Just one hanok surrounded by modern building and hidden in small alley. Room was small but just enough for 2 person to sleep. I love the heating system on the floor. Very comfortable esp in cold weather. I dun like the toilet. Is super duper small and outside the room. We hv to come out in cold weather in order to go toilet. The owner Pascal very responsive and friendly. He could speak very well chinese. He prepare nice breakfast for us in the morning. The kitchen is oso very small. If Space and privacy is what you want this hanok does not provide you much.

            Not ideal for winter periods and a little overrated”
            1 night stay: ok - 2 night stay: overstayed - 3 night stay: no no winter: no no - rest of the seasons: ok We stayed there for 3 nights in January, so it wasn't a good experience due to several factors. The good: location (jongno-3ga was a convenient place to stay if you plan to visit surrounding attractions), and it is 5 mins walk away from the subway and airport limousine bus (2 different stations) The bad: the toilet/bathroom is located outdoor and we weren't able to lock it, there will not be room cleaning service like hotels, facilities were minimal as the place is just warm enough to sleep and maps available for visitors we missed all but 1 breakfast as we couldn't wake up in time for it (8am). and on the only breakfast we had, it was porridge, omelette and some sides. we were afraid of making too much noise as the opening and closing of room doors can be quite noisy to others living in the same house. Overall, to me it is similar to couchsurfing but a paid-couchsurfing.
