A secret oasis in the middle of a bustling city – a gem

“An exquisite traditional house (hanok) set on a side street off Bukchonro road in the center of the Bukchon neighborhood. Set around a quiet courtyard, there are four beautiful rooms – each different. We had the smallest room, but with it came a dark wood porch jutting out into the courtyard and it was here […]

This hanok is very beautiful. I had a peaceful moment when staying there. The food is delicious and the host are very helpful and nice. He is a good English speaker, it is easy to communicate with him and he is always in quick respond. Definitely, I will stay here again and highly recommended!

Keeping it a Secret

“Rak Ko Jae is absolutely beautiful, it breathes serenity, it’s something that comes with time. It is also well situated in Bukchon Village, literally walking distance or a short subway ride to many attractions. We were there for 4 nights and were able to stay in all 3 suites. Each one of them is special […]

Rakkojae first 3 nights, Ritz Carlton last 2 nights. Cried the last 2 nights

“Out of selfishness, I wish I could keep the Rakkojae a secret and post the stay as poorly managed, noisy, and uncomfortable. Or maybe that the Rakkojae reminded me of a fake Hollywood set for a Korean drama. Or better yet, that Rakkojae is located in a completely inconvenient location with zero access to historic […]

Amazingly beautiful place

Stayed in Rakkojae and found it a very serene and beautiful place.. breakfast was perfect (the traditional breakfast is esp good)… room was clean and spacious though there were a lack of hooks to hang our clothes.. the only problem is walls are paper thin (typical of a traditional lodging) so we could hear almost […]

Serene

Stayed for 3 nights and could not have enjoyed it more. Very authentic, traditional, historical, without being tacky or touristy, maintained and run to a T. Very central, yet, once you are on the premises, it feels like you are in a literati’s cabin somewhere remote. Special thanks and credit to Sung Won Kim, who […]

Amazing Hanok

It was our first time to Seoul and my friend and I decided to spend the first 2 nights in a Hanok. We chose this place based on the pictures and reviews people posted here. It turned out to be the best experience ever. We had lots of fun and al Mr.Kim was a lot […]

Traditional Exotic Hotel Perfect Location

“My son (16) and I stayed in this traditionally styled hotel. We were seeking a ‘real Korean experience’ and that is what we received during our stay and didn’t want to be stuck in a western hotel. We chose traditional style bedding but could have selected western style and they would have switched beds. We […]
