      Perfect location, Korean breakfast, Nice staff ”

      easy to go to touristic places, little bit small but cozy and warm rooms, good transportations, delicious Korean breakfast, restaurants and cafes around the house, peaceful and safe area,

      1. Perfect location (Central Seoul) The Vine Hanok guesthouse proved to be the perfect accommodation for the first part of my stay in Korea. Nearly 150-year-old traditional architecture is very charming and while it is close to a busy main road the guesthouse felt peaceful and quiet. Of course the house is located near the subway station. The area is close to the west wall of Gyeongbokgung, and has numerous very smart coffee shops and art galleries, and is well served for affordable Korean, Japanese and Western-style restaurants. You can easily walk to Gwanghwamun Square and adjacent areas and transport links are good. It is really easy to go to Myengdong, Dongdaemun, Ehwa Women's univ, Gyeongbokgung, Bukchon, Insa-dong and all other touristic places. 2. Korean traditional breakfast While staying in this house, they provided me with real Korean traditional dish called ‘Rick cake soup’, which Korean used to eat to celebrate their New Year’s day and Korean Royal cousine called ‘Steamed rice wrapped with lotus leaf’. This was the first time that I ate Korean foods, and I felt it is warming. 3. Really Nice and helpful host Minha and her mother were gracious hosts and helped us whenever we wanted to go places and were unsure of how to get there. Even she wrote name of restaurants and interesting places in Korean which she was worried about that we could not find them They are really She is a great host and she welcomed us the guest house with a lovely letter left by the door as we arrived late in the evening. She promptly replied to my messages when I enquired about anything from places to eat in the area and coach timings. She is extrimely friendly and we loved staying in there for 2 days. 4. Underfloor heating called ‘Ondol’ - so warm and cozy Our stay was during winter and the underfloor heating made it very cosy - especially with the traditional bedding on the floor.

      3 Nights Stay at Vine Guesthouse Hanok”

      Convenient location, safety and cleanliness

      The location is convenient less than 10 mins’ walk to the nearest subway stn -  “Gyeongbokgung”. Cafes, Restaurants, Shops and 24-hr Convenience stores dot the streets leading to the Hanok. I was assigned a Small Bedroom but it was warm and cozy.  The bedding /mattress was soft and comfortable.  I had a “Private” Bathroom so, it was convenient . The Hanok is well conserved. I was very well taken care of by Ms Minha  and her Mother. Overall, it was indeed a great experience for me.  The advantage I had was the personal touch (which many hotels and guests houses lack these days) by the Owners which made my entire stay even more comfortable.  I will not hesitate to recommend this Hanok stay to anyone who visits Seoul and I will certainly return to Vine Hanok on my next visits to Seoul.

      Very kind hosts, clean; very cute hanok!

      The host, Minha, was very kind and enthusiastic about helping us have a good stay in Seoul. She sent us directions to the hanok beforehand, gave us good meal recommendations for dinner, gave us maps, and even let us use her transit cards. The room was very clean; we had our own bathroom in our room, and it didn't smell at all (I say this because I've stayed at a different hanok before, and it did smell). Breakfast was very fun; they served us traditional Korean meals and explained what everything was. I will stay here again when my other relatives come, and recommend it to anyone who wants to have a good hanok stay.

      We came as a group of 4 to Seoul for the first time and had a wonderful experience at the hanok. We had no problems finding the hanok as it was conveniently located, very close to the aiport bus stops. The owners were very nice and helpful and even lent us tmoney cards as we didnt buy them yet. We all enjoyed the breakfast that was prepared everyday. Overall it was a worthwhile experience and would love to come back in the future.

      This guest house is located less than 10 minutes walk from Gyeonbok goong station so very convenient. The owner's mother cooks different delicious breakfast every day, and always asks if you need any sight seeing advice. Room was on the small side but very clean. The neighbourhood is very quiet after 10pm. It's nice to experience staying in a hanok but if you are not used to sleeping on hard floor. They have traditional Korean costume that you can borrow and take photos or go for sight seeing as it's popular in this area.

      Guesthouse is quite far from subway station. Rooms & Bathrooms are very small, however it was clean. The garden also very small compared to photos. When we arrived, there are nobody there to open the door for us. We have to call and they provided password for the alarm door in order for us to go in. And no place for us to store our luggages due to small rooms, we have to keep our luggages in the shared living room. We booked room with private bathroom, but the bathroom are outside the room, it's at living room. Another room was 4persons, but actually i dont think the space can't fit in 4persons, as we were not sleep really well. Overall, the owner is very friendly and always keep the guesthouse clean.

      The traditional flair, breakfast and especially the hosts

      I stayed for 3 nights. Booked a single room but got the Double room because it was also not occupied. Of course because it is a traditional House with thin wooden walls you hear the neighbours if they Talk loudly but i expected that(if you know traditional asian houses you know what i mean).Located right at the biggest Palace grounds it is the right choice if you plan to do a lot of cultural sightseeing. The Metro 3 is a 5 min walk away. The traditional korean breakfast was amazing. Made by the owner herself you are really plunged into the korean culture. Her daughter also was the nicest Person. She Helps you out of you need sth and sat down with me every Morning to Talk about my plans for the Day and made helpful suggestions to improve my plan. I even recommended my parents to stay here.
