              I have stayed one night at Sodam Hanok Guesthouse. The host is very kind, and provide warm hospitality. The room is cosy old Korean one room. He also provides a typical Korean breakfast. The place is next to changgyeonggung and jongmyo shrine, so it's convenient for sightseeing. All in all, this place is highly recommended, and I would like to come back again.

              Breakfast, ambience, owner

              We stayed there for 2 nights. Pascal - the owner was very nice to us. He recommended some places for us to visit. We only managed to have breakfast one morning as we had to leave very early on the second morning. The breakfast was good and delicious. The second night, there was a gathering at the Hanok. It was very lively and although we spoke barely any Korean, it still felt warm and homely. It's not that near any train station though there are two stations in walkable distance. I would say that it is a bit expensive for what it is. The only reason why we picked it out of the many places available is because the room came with a private bathroom. The price is a little high for a guesthouse. Overall, it was lovely and we had a nice time there.

              Lovely place to stay!”

              Initially a little underwhelmed but was quickly charmed by this guest house. Pascal is an excellent host, the room is comfortable and we looked forward to coming home to the guest house after each long day exploring Seoul. Fabulous breakfast!

              Nice owner”

              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.

              Small and cozy hanok experience ”

              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.

              Just to experience Hanokstay ”

              Good location, Very close to Jongno 3 ga station, exit 7, Insa dong area which have many night activities, such as: club, bbq restaurant,...and Bukchon Hanok village, Changgyeonggung, Jongmyo Shrine. The hoster is nice, Korea breakfast is simple yet good but the room is very basic and small (7sqm), thus, quite expensive (70usd) vs. other modern hotel
