We stayed one night in the family room. It was an intimate space with very nice inlaid wall unit and dresser. Ondol floor heating kept us cozy. Best experience was next morning with our hostess serving wonderful Korean breakfast and dining with us to talk about the food and Korea. We then dressed in traditional Hanbok clothes and took many pictures. She was very nice and made us feel welcome in her home. Highly recommend staying at Bukchon Maru.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bukchon Maru Hanok Guesthouse is located in the heart of the Bukchon Hanok residential area in Seoul. Bukchon (meaning North Village in Korean) has the highest concentration of Hanoks, the traditional tiled-roof Korean buildings. We are a family run guest house, having owned this property for over 30 years. Due to its proximity to the local palaces, Bukchon has been home to high government officials and prestigious families of the late Chosen Dynasty, who needed to commute to the local palaces often. The name "Bukchon" was synonymous with status and class in the era no more than 100 years ago. Along with the tumultuous modern Korean history, the quiet neighborhood of Bukchon also underwent significant changes. Modern buildings began to appear, and with the elimination of traditional class system, more and more people swarmed in to the village. ... more less
