Staying In a traditional Korean Honok Hotel and discovering Seoul’s Charm – Seoul, South Korea

Staying in a traditional Korean Hanok hotel in the popular tourist destination of Bukchon Hanok Village is a memorable experience.

Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called Hanok. Until today, many residents still stay there and tourists are advised to keep their volume minimal while in this area.

From the moment you cross the threshold of Bukchon Binkwan, you are enveloped in the warmth of traditional Korean hospitality. The staff extends a genuine welcome introducing the hotel and its surroundings and creating an atmosphere that transcends the typical hotel experience.

The personalized service and genuine care for individual needs make guests feel more like cherished friends than mere visitors.

Welcomed by warm Korean hospitality, Bukchon Binkwan by Rakkojae unfolds as a portal to the past, allowing guests to immerse themselves in Korea’s cultural richness. Rooms are on the rooftop level with view of Namsan Tower. The bedroom is spacious and we slept on futons and sat on the heated floor to enjoy the welcome tea and snack in winter.

Breakfast is made to order with either daily traditional Korean breakfast or continental breakfast catering to your desired time at “The Living Room”.

Hanok Hotel promises an experience that captures the very essence of Seoul. Rediscover the beauty of tradition and find serenity amidst the city’s hustle.
