  • Bukchonmaru Hanok Guesthouse is a beautiful hanok that sits on the hills of Wonseo Pass. Guests can experience a comfortable, homely atmosphere and a Korean breakfast prepared by the mother host. There are three special features of the Bukchonmaru Hanok Guesthouse. First, the guesthouse offers a fine view. In spite of its hollow structure, the hanok is a two-story building for a unique experience of hanok. Guests can enjoy a glass of beer in the evening at the yard while appreciating the night view of Seoul City Hall and Jongno. Second, the guesthouse offers a healthy breakfast. The jangdokdae (platform of earthenware pots stored with sauces) outside in the yard is a display of gochujang (Korean chili paste), soybean paste, and soy sauces that are personally made by the mother host. You’re mistaken if you’re wondering how breakfast can be so heavy! There are no heavy portions of meat or expensive dishes, but guests can enjoy meals cooked with the mother host’s spirit during a time when even Koreans don’t make their own gochujang, soybean paste, soy sauce, or kimchi at home. However, at Bukchonmaru, guests are served homemade food made with natural ingredients. Living up the traditional elders’ idea of how guests should be treated, all foreigners who visit Korean can experience the spirit of the Korean people. Third, the guesthouse offers convenient transportation. The guesthouse is located between Bukchon Sight #2 and #3, offering convenient transportation to Myeong-dong, Jongno-gu, and the airport. The traditional wooden floors built by artisans without the use of a single nail sits in the middle of the hanok. The hanbok experience and traditional tea tasting can all be enjoyed at the wooden floors. The number of guestrooms available could be increased if the aim of the guesthouse was to make profit, but we decided to provide just three rooms (Anbang, Geonneonbang, and Sarangbang) to accommodate each guest in a homely atmosphere where they can make good memories. We believe that the most important part of making memories is to make them in a family-like, comfortable environment. We help guests from all over the country and the world make memories as they would with their families. If you have any questions, please contact us at +82-10-3253-8751 or
