Stayed 1 night in November 2016
Unhelpful ”
We had a very bad timing as the night of our reservation was the night of the Seoul demonstration. Since xiwoo was right beside the blue house, we were basically stranded at the train station and were not able to head to the accommodation. The owners were also not around the house, or able to provide much other assistance. There was some communication with them, but they recommended us to wait until late into the night until the situation was better. Which did not happen until past twelve midnight. We tried to go to the station but the demonstration and police were everywhere. We then tried to ask if there was an alternative accommodation they recommended us or even if we can cancel the booking but they were not helpful at all with that. Did not give us any options and also did not find out if we stayed at xiwoo or not. We didn't end up staying there at all as we could not get there. What a waste, and also unsatisfactory experience.

Perfect Korean Traditonal House 'Hanoak'”
Quite environment and nice architecture, Attitude and performance of lady owner, Korean style breakfest
'Xiwoo' is very pretty Korean style house. With a lovely Pine tree center of the courtyard, the house is so attractive. Maybe the best small 'Hanoak' in Seochon of Seoul in terms of architectural quality. House was clean and well prepared in all aspects. Lady owner was polite and intellectual. Speaks nice English. She served me Korean soup and rice as breakfest, which was tasty and visually balanced. She gave me every informations about nearby area and Seoul. I have no hesitation in recommending this house to future travelers who will visit Seoul.

Hanok,down your expectation will have surprise”
Food (Good, Fair and Poor in 3 different days), living condition good if expectation as Hanok, location is good if climbing up 10 mins with luggage is not a problem.
Guest owner is nice but need to follow her own living style. Price does not worth as room facility is not as claimed. Only one room (the one we booked) claimed to have the facilities of small kitchen and TV. However, these are shared facilities and stove of the Kitchen is not allowed to use. Other rooms that do not claimed they have these facilities can enjoy these facilities. Unlike all other smaller rooms (totally 4 rooms in this Hanok, 1 no toilet), toilet of this room is not connected. Passing through the common area is required when need to use the toilet. The owner did not tell other guests the toilet is private for our room. Therefore, other guest may use our toilet accidentally. Hence, we cannot place our personal belongings like personal towel, toothbrush, changing clothes, etc in the toilet. Hanok location is difficult to find for the taxi driver. (we spent double the cost even though we have correct direction indication.) Walking from Metro station is a lot easier if one can read map easily without luggage. Simple Breakfast varies in different days from continental bread to Mussels. The owner's style showing that the concerns is on the property itself more than the enjoyment of the guests.

Beautiful house”
Ambience, cleanliness, service
A very beautiful guesthouse. I had a single room with a small bathroom. The place is absolutely adorable. I arrived just as the previous guest was checking out (at 11am) but Teresia took my bags and gave me the keys. Its a bit of a walk from the station but great for visiting the palaces and its surrounding, which is what I did. When I got back for a short break in the afternoon my bags had been thoughtfully placed in the room for me. The only issue I had was that the adaptor I had didn't fit in the wall socket properly but it was easily fixed with some tape. The location did not seem that convenient originally but once I worked out the bus system it was actually great. My flight out of Seoul was really early the next day and I did not want to bother Teresia with breakfast but she very kindly came early and had breakfast ready for me by 7.30am. From the guesthouse it was only a few minutes walk to bus stop which took me straight to Seoul station. I really enjoyed my stay here and it was great living in a traditional Korean house.

A second home in Seoul”
Hanok stlyle, clean and cozy, friendly owner
It was the most extraordinary experience throughout our stays in Seoul. The owners were so friendly and helpful. Learned much about Korean's culture and even the poem in Korean from Sean! Teresia ensures the breakfast was prepared in time and those were yummy! The location is good, 10 mins walk from metro station and easily accessible to places of attractions. A very happy experience after all.

Séjour à Xiwoo”
Bel hanok bien entretenu, chambre spacieuse, petit déjeuner très bon
Le séjour s'est bien déroulé : chambre confortable, futons épais. Bon petit déjeuner, sain et savoureux. Le hanok est très beau. Teresa est très serviable et nous la remercions d'avoir pu stocker nos bagages pendant notre excursion à la DMZ. Le seul bémol est l'insonorisation, ce qui est normal vu l'architecture traditionnelle des portes faites avec du papier. Nous avons donc subi le retour tardif des voisines de chambres qui se croient seules au monde et mettent une demie-heure à ranger, à se laver en pleine nuit en jacassant.

実家にいるような居心地の良さ”
まず、この地域が安心して過ごせる地域。観光客はほとんどいないので、「韓国」らしい滞在をしたい方にはオススメ! ご主人のテレサさんもすごく親切で、わからないことも教えてくださるし滞在に不自由なしです。 目の前の大通りからソウル駅や、仁寺洞行きのバスも通っており、宿舎が街中でなくても便利な立地。世宗大王の生誕の地も近く、朝鮮王朝の歴史を偲ぶにはもってこいの場所です。
