After navigating our way through some private houses in Bukchon, I knew we were pretty near to Rak Ko Jae Seoul after walking passed the elementary school.
This boutique hotel felt like a beautiful private home as Whoopi welcome us at the doorstep after pressing...More
After the fourth day in a row taking a cold shower and not having heating despite the 10 degrees outside, I am struggling to talk about the positives of this hanok. It is true that the place is beautiful, and that the cooking is really,...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
streets attract locals and tourists alike for their quaint and charming scenery, while the Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae) serves as the residence for South Korea’s president. Art fans will love exploring the many independent and private art galleries in the area.

The bathrooms are actually clean, well equipped with amenities, and don't smell (bathrooms state is something I always check when out traveling). They might not be as spacious as well-established hotels but they are very clean. Even the toilets are similar to those you'd find in Japan (fancy side remote panel)

At the Incheon International Airport, proceed to Exit #5 and take the No. 6011 limousine bus. The bus will pass through downtown Seoul and drop you off at Anguk subway station. It will take approximately 1 1/2 hours from the Incheon Airport to Anguk station.
The closest subway station is Anguk Station Line 3 (Orange line).
Once you arrive at Anguk station, proceed to the No. 2 exit of Anguk station where a Dunkin Donuts shop is on your right. Walking north for about 250m, you'll find the Bukchon Tourist Information Center near Jae-Dong elementary school. At the Information Center, please ask the staff for directions or call us at 02-742-3410. RakKoJae is just 150m away.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
From everyone over at Rakkojae.
