This is a Hanok Korean Traditional Guest house.
We welcome you to a traditional Korean Hanok styled house as our family has been living here for the last three quarter of century. The house is located in the old part of Korea where all the touristic locations (Dongdaemun, Myungdong, City Hall, Namsan and Itaewon) are all within 15 minutes by subway line 1 & 2 (Shinseoldong Station).
If you are a traveller who wants to experience traditional Korean Hanok house as well as normal Korean lifestyle, this is a perfect place to stay. We also have large open air courtyard where you can enjoy after a long day of travel. We call this place Dal Byul (Moon & Star) because you could actually enjoy quiet rest on a large yard under the Moon and Star.

We can't recommend this home or these hosts enough!
The room was great, even better than it looks in the photos. It was very well equipped, very secure, and cosy and warm (even though it was freezing outside!). The neighbourhood felt very safe, and Ji Yeong's directions for getting to the building were very clear. It was easy to reach from the airport, and less than 10 minutes walk from the subway. There were lots of cafes and convenience stores in the area too.
Ji Yeong and Paul were both very welcoming and helpful, and Paul even got up early to help us get to the airport on time.
We would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay in Seoul, and we'll definitely be back!
Second sejour chez cette famille adorable et tellement accueillante. 1000 Mercis pour nous recevoir si gentiment, repondre à toutes nos questions sur Seoul, les endroits à visiter, ou manger... Nous gardons un merveilleux souvenir de notre accueil!
Me and my wife spent 5 days at their lovely abode. Very nice warm and cosy home. Ms.Ji Yeong and family were awesome and accomodating. We highly recommend this place to anyone and would love to come back too!
Staying at a traditional hanok in korea is one of the best place to be. Ji Yeong's place is the perfect place. The house is clean and spacious. The neighbors are quiet and friendly. Ji Yeong is really a good host. Initially, we got lost on our way to her place but she helped by all means to make sure we arrived safely to her place. Her daughter also shown us her hospitality while we were there.
Will definitely introduce my friends to stay at her place.
We had a nice heated house in cold Seoul. The location is superb, just 6 minutes of subway, we enjoyed a lot our stay and can recommend this place. Xxxxx Donald en kenn
Très bon accueil de Ji Yeong à 10h du matin, notre vol étant de nuit. De nombreux conseils nous ont été donné par ses amis et elle-même concernant les restaurants du quartier et les principales attractions touristiques.
Le logement est bien indépendant de la maison pincipale, il se trouve dans une petite aile ce celle-ci et et est magnifique avec en prime vue et accès au petit jardin familial, typiquement coréen. Logement parfait pour deux, dans un quartier central et typique de Séoul. Le futon est de plus très confortable. Je n'hésiterai pas à conseil cet hôte!
Very good welcome of Ji Yeong at 10 am in the morning, our flight was a night one. Several tips was given to us by her friends and herself about restaurants around house and main tourisitic attractions.
The accommodation is independent from the main house, it is in a small wing it and is magnificent with viewand access to the small family, typically Korean garden. Housing is prefect for two people, in a central and typical district of Seoul. Moreover, the futon is very comfortable.
I shall not hesitate to advice this host!
It is a very nice place that we enjoy staying there. And Paul is a nice gentleman. Although we leave in the very early morning, he wakes up and send us off. OMG!!!!! And he is very helpful. He lead us to come back home when we got lost.
