I spent here for three nights and every experience that I had was awesome. Actuallt I didn`t expect too much cause I heard a lot about Korean traditional house. For example, It is cold, unconvenient, something like that. But the room was modified a lot like a modern hotel. There`s toilet inside the room. It`s not like other traditional houses....

Buried in the Bukchon Hanok Village, this cosy little place is great to stay. About 10 mins walk from Anguk subway, its not so difficult to go or locate. Walking along the way also allows you to see all the restaurants and cafes and convenient stores and guesthouse that line this nice little street. We arrived early but the room...

At our arrival, we got really confused as the guesthouse is at a different location than indicated in the Internet, in Lonely Planet etc. so we thought we had been conned. However they probably have only moved. This means however that some of the picture are not showing the actual place but probably the previous location. All in all, the...

We booked a room in the annex (bambu) - not the main guesthouse. First, it was really hard to find. Fortunately, a nice old man in the neighborhood helped us. We got to see a lot of the area and the location is great. After reading reviews about windowless rooms, I booked a specific room with a window, and confirmed...

Location very easy to locate, great that is right in the Bukchon district! Guesthouse was small and simple, clean with al basic amenities I needed. Wifi, tv and toilet in room. The staff were friendly and helpful. Simple western-Korean mix breakfast served every morning to your room! It was a bit pricey, comparable to a motel but definitely more comfortable...

I stayed at the Tea Guesthouse for 6 nights and really enjoyed my experience there. It is basic but it's what made the experience even more fun. The staff were very helpful and courteous. I did worry about not being able to stay there based on previous reviews with arriving late at night but had no issue whatsoever. The home...

Neighbourhood Profile
Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean homes (called hanok), many of which are found in Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses, and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side streets attract locals and tourists alike for their quaint and charming scenery, while the Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae) serves as the residence for South Korea’s president. Art fans will love exploring the many independent and private art galleries in the area.
