Expensive but for a good reason
This place was beautiful! The area surrounding was great including the traditional style of architecture. And not to mention the hosts were the nicest people I have ever met! It is quite pricey, but the breakfast alone is worth it.

Beautiful setting with traditional and charming character. The interior however was slightly bland. The food and service was excellent.

3/5 Okay

Wonderful experience but poor value
Had to upgrade room at substantial cost because initial room booked " was really designed as a single room" per owner

4/5 Good

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Nothing like experiencing a stay there.
This is a luxury Hanok in the Bukchon village. Visiting d area is nothing like staying and experiencing a stay there. The caretaker doubles up as the chef. The breakfast was lovely; typical Korean food. She is also very attentive and thoughtful of our needs. I would highly recommend a stay there.
