We had a wonderful time in Gyeongbokgung Palace, after renting Hanbok from this one outlet outside the palace. I think it was owned by a family, a couple and theiir son. Very good service. I didnt expect the rental to be very cheap. It includes a handbag to carry our personal belongings, safekeeping of our bags, make up, hairdo and other accessories.

I was looking for a place to rent some korean traditional hanbok near Jongro and I found hanboknam online. They were really friendly and spoke a bit of english.They got so many beautiful Hanboks and it was quite hard to choose one! It’s really convenient cuz people renting hanboks here didn’t have to do the ticketing for Gyeongbokgung palace which is very competitive ;) Also, there’s an app called DealightMe that showed me how to get more discounts so it would be helpful. This time I’m getting a partial cash back using my Mastercard. I would visit again with some friends next time to get more photos. Loved it and will come again.

My husband and I had such a fun time selecting and wearing our costumes throughout our visit of Gyeongbokgung Palace. It was tricky for us to find the location. I called the number and the receptionist was so kind to come out and find us as I told her where we were (we were not that far away). They were helpful in helping us get situated. Our ticket said to come between 9:30-10:30, and we appreciated beating the crowds that gathered more throughout the day. They were all friendly and helpful. You can choose between traditional and royal (I think those are the categories), which are different in price. We just paid the difference of 10,000 won because we wanted to rent the royal costumes and my husband wanted to add the traditional hat. By the time we returned our hanboks, the rental place was really busy.

Our pictures from our trip were wonderful! I highly recommend this experience. The location of our rental place gave us time to eat a delicious lunch in the area. We went back to watch the changing of the guard after we returned our hanboks, and then we just walked to Bukchon Hanok Village afterwards, which was a great experience.

I like the experience. The lady that helped me dress were so sweet and nice same as the lady that did my hair. The only reason why I don’t give the 5 starts it’s becase the check in lady was kind of rude and we didn’t have too much choices of Hanbok. But I still recommend you to do the hanbok experience.

This is one the most seen attraction at Seoul! There are rent services for wearing the traditional Hanbok which gives a free entry to the palace areas. The structure is very beautiful and the Fall Season gives ample photo ops!Overall, a super memory for life!

There was a good range to choose from and the staff were very helpful. The location is easy to find (a yellow building on the left in a side street off the main road)
Only 5 minutes walk to the palace entering by a side gate near the palace museum
Advance booking avoids the queue

I wanted to wear some traditional clothes while in Seoul and this was a great way to do that and see the palaces at the same time. I went for the 2.5 hr option so that I would have to look at the palaces. When in the shop I was told what I needed to get and was left to look at and choose at my leisure. There were size guides on the wall to help you choose. After choosing you get changed and there are lockers for you to put your possessions. Even though the weather was terrible for the first part of my rental, I enjoyed looking around the palaces in traditional gear. The shop was easy to find and very close to the palaces.

It was very fulfilling to be able to try wearing traditional Korean attire. Two and a half hours is enough to go around the Gyeongbokgung Palace grounds and the surrounding areas. We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that entrance into the Gyeongbokgung Palace is free if you're wearing Hanbok. Some of the Hanbok at the store we went to have some defects though (missing buttons, small tears, little stains, etc.) so make sure to pick yours carefully. Overall, it was a very good experience. Wearing the Hanbok is a must while in Seoul.

Can understand why others suggest going earlier, cos it can get abit crowded for photo taking. We reached around 11 to choose the hanbok, quite fun, but hard to get long enough hanbok for a tall person like me, end up my photos reveal a shorter hanbok with my slippers. :p can try up to two different hanboks to suit yout preference. Simple hairdo with simple accessories for ladies. Staff are very polite and helpful. You are required to leave an ID at the counter, seen quite alot of passport there, would suggest you leave your driving license instead for safety reasons.

Short walk to the palace. Change of guards parade at 10, 11 and 1 according to some friends. Palace is super big, has alot of nice photo taking backgrounds. Was quite an interesting and fun experience walking around in the hanbok.
