Rakkojae was within walking distance to The Blue House, the Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, Buckchon Village, Jogyesa Temple, Insadong, and lots of Michelin rated restaurants. The staff and Mr. Kim, our host/concierge was very helpful with recommendations of...More

    Very beautiful traditional Hanok guesthouse. Staying here really is an unforgettable experience. Especially at night when the place is beautifully lit, it almost seems like a fairy tail. Sleeping on the 'ondol' heated floor with Korean-style bedding may not be for everyone (I personally had...More

    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
