    CHARMING TRADITIONAL HANOK”
    We loved Sophia from the location to the room to the owners. It was so lovely to stay in a traditional Hanok that even had the old way of locking the panel doors. The onky downside is the bathroom is outside so it was struggle going out in the middle of the night in cold autumn when you had to use it. Breakfast was good, simple but hearty soup, egg and bread. Sophia and her Mom was so engaging. The only downside was that we arrived early for checkin and we were told to come back at 3PM. So we had our late lunch but when we got back at precisely 3PM the room was not yet readym But overall a charming hanon that I would stay at again :)

    A very nice Hanok experience”
    This is a very old Hanok house so definitely suitable for those who are looking for a Korean homestay experience. The place is very near to subway station Anguk (5m walk), Gyeongbok gung, Changdeok gung ang Bukchon Hanok Village can be reached within 20 min walk. Price wise, I found it pretty attractive compared to other Hanok guesthouses. Sophia and her mother are very friendly and helpful. Sophia'mom was very kind in preparing the breakfast and sharing with us about Korean weather. There is luggage storage facilities if you want to leave your luggages at the guesthouse before check-in/after check-out. The only limitation is that the bathroom is outside and shared thus if you are visiting Seoul in mid/late winter, it will be a little bit inconvenient, especially when your body is not used to cold weather. Overall, it was a very pleasant time staying here. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends who would like to try Hanok experience.

    Wish I could stay longer”
    The location is ideal, close to top sightseeing sites and very conviniently located for the bus to/from the airport (10 min walk). Sophia and her mother are adorable, warm and welcoming. The experience of staying in a hanok makes the trip to Seoul even more memorable and this one has a familiar sense added to it. The facilities are good and comfortable. I had a very enjoyable stay, I just wish I could have stayed longer. Highly recommended.

    Happy guest :)”
    I spent a month here and definitely recommend if you are looking for somewhere simplistic to stay for a good price. The second you step in you notice how peaceful the place feels . Sophia and her mother are very hospitable and will make your stay as comfortable as possible . Great location in Buckhon area, it is very close to Insadong , Geongbokgung Palace and Jogyesa temple. 5 minute walk , if that , to Anguk station which was handy too , since I had to commute quite a lot .
