I have been to Seoul more than 5 times but had never had the chance to experience staying in a Hanok. After researching and speaking to friends who have stayed at a Hanok, I found Namhyundang Guesthouse. Located near Jongno-ro and Anguk, Namhyundang is between the new and the old district of Seoul. For those who wish to explore the...

The guesthouse is located centrally in Seoul, about 5 minutes walk from Jongno-ro metro station with food stalls along the way. You can get to places like Insa-dong, Gyeongbokgung and Bukchon on foot. Everywhere else is only a couple of metro stops away, very accessible. It was my first time staying in a hanok and I will definitely choose to...

We stayed in Namhyundang Guesthouse from 27-29 December, and I must stay its quite an amazing experience. We were initially quite worried that the Hanok would be spartan and without central heating, it being a traditional guesthouse after all. All our fears were allayed the minute we stepped foot into the rooms, and were immediately warmed by the hospitable welcome...

A first time to stay at a traditional Hanok guesthouse. Personally, I find it a nice experience to try. The owner Mr. Lee was very nice and friendly. The room was very tiny it says for four people even though we were three we barely could fit. the bathroom was large. the breakfast was simple. The place was not tidy....

We got an airport taxi from the airport because the map seemed complicated and we had a bit of luggage. Near Nakwon market, the taxi dropped us to the alley leading to the house. Just straight the alley and turn right we found the facade of the house. Our first time to stay in a hanok and while it is...

first stay here was in 2013, and been back here every time i visit Seoul. Namhyundang is located very conveniently near a lot of touristy places, a few palaces, and shopping areas such as Insa-dong, Bukchon, Samcheong-dong and even Myeongdong. These places are all within walking distance hence a lot of travelling time are saved. Having said that, the house...

This is the first time I have ever tried accomodations outside of a hotel so was initially a bit skeptical when my wife told me where we were staying. This changed immediately when I met the owner, Mr Lee, who personally went out of his way to ensure that we arrived safely at his Hanok. Each interaction and suggestion during...

The guesthouse is like a home and nothing reminds you of a hotel. Owners are super friendly and helpful. The facilities are simple and traditional. Simple room with clean bathroom, washing machine, no unnecessary items such as TV, phone or radio. Our kids loved playing in the courtyard. Breakfast is simple cereal and bread with coffee and juice. If you...

This place was a little tricky to find, but there are directions to follow. Once we met Mr. Lee, the host everything was ok. He needed us to move guesthouses (which he arranged) because of a family party, but then to make up for it he took us on a driving tour of Seoul and to the airport bus stop....

Neighbourhood Profile
Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts, fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in particular has become a local institution for its unique spiral layout and the many boutique shops inside that sell handmade crafts and goods. This is the perfect neighborhood to sample a range of Korean dishes, with vegetarian Korean temple cuisine restaurants being a popular draw, but street food carts are just as famous. As a top tourist destination, crowds can swell, particularly on weekends, but you can find some rest and respite in one of the private art galleries or grab a cup of Korean tea in a tea house – many of which are located in beautifully renovated traditional Korean homes.
