    There is really nothing to fault with Rakkojae. The rooms and their surrounds are quite beautiful - a pocket of timeless serenity in this busy city. The service is perfectly judged - always helpful, never intrusive. Both the Korean and Western breakfasts were good and...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
