Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the areas we visited. He took time to give the history of all the places we visited.

I was looking for a place to rent some korean traditional hanbok near Jongro and I found hanboknam online. They were really friendly and spoke a bit of english.They got so many beautiful Hanboks and it was quite hard to choose one! It’s really convenient cuz people renting hanboks here didn’t have to do the ticketing for Gyeongbokgung palace which is very competitive ;) Also, there’s an app called DealightMe that showed me how to get more discounts so it would be helpful. This time I’m getting a partial cash back using my Mastercard. I would visit again with some friends next time to get more photos. Loved it and will come again.

I like the experience. The lady that helped me dress were so sweet and nice same as the lady that did my hair. The only reason why I don’t give the 5 starts it’s becase the check in lady was kind of rude and we didn’t have too much choices of Hanbok. But I still recommend you to do the hanbok experience.

We had a wonderful time in Gyeongbokgung Palace, after renting Hanbok from this one outlet outside the palace. I think it was owned by a family, a couple and theiir son. Very good service. I didnt expect the rental to be very cheap. It includes a handbag to carry our personal belongings, safekeeping of our bags, make up, hairdo and other accessories.

There was no clear instructions of what we needed to do. We selected our own hanbok and no one to help us to help for the kids hanbok. We took the boy’s outfit for my girl unknowingly. After some time, someone informed I took the wrong hanbok. After we returned, there was no clear instruction where to return the hanbok. There was a signage return at the at the counter, so we proceeded there as we didn’t know. When I asked the counter staff, she gave me and annoyed look and snapped at me rudely said I should return all the hanbok back to where they were and return the lockers keys. Is like if I knew when there are no clear instructions indicated. Hanbok is old and not in a good condition. Also, it is not the cheapest. The whole place was chaotic, people queuing for hair and paying as well as returning all at the same time. Will not recommend or be back.

This is one the most seen attraction at Seoul! There are rent services for wearing the traditional Hanbok which gives a free entry to the palace areas. The structure is very beautiful and the Fall Season gives ample photo ops!Overall, a super memory for life!

There was a good range to choose from and the staff were very helpful. The location is easy to find (a yellow building on the left in a side street off the main road)
Only 5 minutes walk to the palace entering by a side gate near the palace museum
Advance booking avoids the queue

I went along with this because my girlfriend's Korean, and it seemed a cool way of looking around the palace together, although men don't get too much of a choice of costumes: we opted for the "king&queen look" (it's free entry into the palace for hanbok-wearers too).

Seemingly the only Westerner onsite that day wearing traditional costume, I can't deny I felt a bit self-conscious. But after a while, you get used to it, and eventually I can even say that making the effort added to the occasion. Go for it!
