Meaning "a place where one can enjoy the traditions of times past and rest one's soul," Rakkojae Seoul is a Korean traditional culture space with a history of 130 years. It was renovated by Human National Treasure-Master Carpenter Young Jin Chung in 2003 and has since received international acclaim. Here, the harmony created between traditional Korean architecture and nature has created on opportunity for the true beauty of Hanok to shine. Upon passing the graceful main gate, one can see neat cozy Hanok. The bamboo and pine trees scattered in the garden add to its natural beauty and the rubber shoes placed on each terrace stone bring back the scent of old memories. Standing in a square formation around the yard, the elegance of ancient noblemen can be felt in each crevice of Rakkojae. The pavilion, lotus pond and patio that past scholars enjoyed were carefully revived to draw out the beautiful elegance of traditional Korean architecture. The Patio, in particular, adds to the beauty of the Hanok's refreshing empty spaces. When sitting on the patio like scholars of the past, time itself seems to slow down and the smallest sounds coupled with the cool breeze become special. In slowly looking up, one can only see the blue sky and white clouds-while the complications of life in today's modern society seem to become insignificant. As the place to enjoy the true elegance of Korean traditional culture, Rakkojae also offers the opportunity to experience the traditional beauty of Korea. One can encounter such beauty through savoring a traditional Korean course meal, experiencing a tea ceremony, relaxing in the yellow-mud sauna, trying on a Hanbok, or making your own Kimchi. Reminiscent of an aristocratic house of the Chosun Dynasty, Rakkojae's accommodations are as tidy and as comfortable as those found at top class hotels. Going above and beyond, we offer our guests a healthy voyage by sleeping on a natural jade ondol floor or relaxing in a yellow-mud sauna that is heated with firewood. Create unforgettable memories by experiencing Korea's beauty through the simplest of scenes, such as the faint moonlight sinking into your room through a door left ajar. We are confident that a night at Rakkojae will deliver special inspiration.

Beautiful traditional property and great location at the center of bukchon village. Love the feel of being in a local neighborhood. This is walking distance to a lot of restaurants, hanok houses, palaces, little shops and coffee houses, and small museums. We absolutely enjoyed our experience here but I also realize that this kind of housing is not for everyone. They also provide hanbok for you to wear within the property grounds. Every inch of the property is picturesque and goes perfect with the hanbok. The staff is great and took a lot of amazing photos for us. We had a small trouble using the gate key on our way back to dinner on our first time. It was pouring rain and the emergency contact spoke little English. As it turned out, you have to touch the keypad first. It might benefit the guests if there's an instruction for this near the gate. Food is just ok for us but it's not an issue as there are plenty of options very close to it.

Dear Nenita2014, First and foremost, thank you very much for choosing to stay with us at Rakkojae Seoul Main Hanok. We are delighted that you loved the experience and our property. I apologize that you had a challenge with the electronic lock on our front gate. We inform all guests how to use it upon check-in but do understand that the check-in process can be quite hectic. We pride ourselves of having the highest standards within our class and as such, will review replacing the lock to one that is more user-friendly. We hope that we can welcome you back to any of the Rakkojae Hanok Collection properties on a future visit to Korea. Best regards, Michael Ahn Executive Vice President Rakkojae Hanok Collection

Undoubtedly, one of the most unique, interesting, meaningful, and memorable hotel experiences my family and I have ever had was our one week stay at the Rakkojae Seoul Hanok situated in the historic district and close to several palaces and temples. The beautiful traditional Korean architecture as well as the overall design of the compound was striking. It was easy to see and appreciate the love and care that went into restoring and creating this extraordinary place to stay in Seoul. I cannot imagine that there is anything else in the city quite like it. For travelers who are looking for an authentic "old Korean style" experience, this is the hotel you are seeking.
Rakkojae's location is fantastic with so many sights, subways, restaurants, and shops within easy walking distance. Like any first time visitors to Seoul, considerable time was devoted to seeing the many wonderful sights to behold in this remarkable city. Each day, however, our desire to return to the Rakkojae compound - perhaps my favorite sight of all - grew stronger and we found ourselves eager to "come home" at the end of each day. Reading and relaxing in the courtyard and enjoying the peace, tranquility, and soft Korean music in this beautiful environment was a daily highlight of our stay.
It is important to mention the exceptional staff who were so helpful and happily offered their assistance in so many ways. The manager, Mr. Kim, was always ready to assist with recommendations, directions, and helping to secure local transportation when needed. He and his staff made daily breakfast and dinner an exciting event. One can chose either a traditional Western or a traditional Korean breakfast. I strongly recommend the latter for a memorable dining experience. Meals were eaten sitting on comfortable pillows. Floor seating with backrests were available on request.
Since we were a guest family of twelve, we essentially occupied every one of the five (yes, only five!) rooms. This gave me an opportunity to see each one which I so appreciated. They are all 19th century rooms with 21st century bathrooms and excellent air-conditioning. All are uniquely different and equally attractive. My room was the Patio Room which was lovely and included a beautiful enclosed area overlooking the courtyard where we had our meals.
It might seem as though I am describing the perfect hotel. What I am intending to do is to describe what felt like a perfect experience. I found no deficits or had any disappointments during the entire week. As you can see, Rakkojae Seoul is quite heartily recommended for a Korean hotel experience that I believe you will cherish and never forget.

First time staying in korean traditional house(hanok) and we found rakkojae..My friend and I had stayed in Rakkojae for one night~both of us staying in a far room and we paid 275,000 won for one night~yea~most of the people gave me the first expression was "wow! so expensive!!"even korean..At first,I thought it was acceptable because it's included breakfast,dinner and sauna.however,when I got into rakkojae,I felt a bit disappointed because I was expected too much~I can't deny that the atmosphere in this hanok was nice..one thing my friend and I dislike was the meal they provided.It's not worth for the price.their service was good..Also,they keep luggage ~so don't worry if you leave your luggage there and go out for a walk after you checked out~overall is okay~but if you ask me,I would say it is not worth for that~staying one night is enough if you really want to stay in this hanok~if you are traveler who on tight budget and really want to try staying in hanok,do consider others:)

Dear guest, Thank you very much for staying at RakKoJae! I am happy you enjoyed our beautiful atmosphere and good service. We are very proud of it and will ensure that this continues into the future. However, I do apologize that you did not enjoy our dinner. We have since upgraded our dinner offering to include more items, such as beef bulgogi.

We love our 2 nights experience here.

The people were great and welcoming. Chen received us and took good care of us (he is great with my kids too). We thoroughly enjoyed all our meals in our room (which was of much convenience). Our breakfast varied from Korean to Continental for the 2 days (appreciated the variations). We had one dinner in the Hanok and another in their restaurant (in Mydedong). Both were equally great.

We stayed in the separate house. It comes with 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms, and it was comfortable for our family of 4. We were excited to find out that the room was the same room where SHINEE filmed Hello Baby. Understood from Woody that quite a few Korean stars stayed in the hanok before.

Wifi in the room was great and we had no issue at all. The room did not come with a lock. It was not an issue for us though. We were given the key to the front door and was not given a curfew as mentioned in the past review. The complimentary steam room was great for us especially on the cold winter day. It was a good prelude for us before we try the public bath houses.

As it snowed the night before, the next day we woke up to a beautiful scene in the hanok. This was such a great experience and we totally loved it.

The location actually allowed us to venture around Bukchon Hanok Village easily. We met some tourist guide on the 1st night and gotten the map from them. The map was helpful with suggested routes which we tried the next day.

Staying here is by no means cheap and we were glad that we were not disappointed. Woody and Chen made us felt at home and well taken care of. We would love to stay longer ... if only it is cheaper ... :)))

This is not the place if you want all the modern conveniences of a Western-styled hotel. However if you wish to be pampered in a different way, and seek a more traditional setting while experiencing Korean food, this is the place. Compared to other hanks you will be very comfortable: floors are heated, rooms have air-conditioning, and you have your private bathroom, complete with tub, hand shower, and a smart toilet. There is Wifi in the room as well, and it works. No, there is no television, and you will not want one, an you have to derive pleasure from dining and sleeping on a floor pads. The location is exquisite, in walking distance of both palaces galleries and certain museums, in a very quaint "beat" small commercial and residential neighborhood, not far from many interesting small boutiques, a contrast to the stores and bustle you will find downtown. The "day staff" is dedicated but limited in capacity, however if Whoopi Mun is there she is bright, quite fluent in English, and will take care of your every need. If you need maps and tourist assistance, you are only two blocks away from the nearest government "tourist information Center." Because the hanok is a small place, it is best to plan your stay well ahead of time. If there is one complaint I have, it's that there is no real common place where you can mix with other guests, except perhaps the sauna. Every room has its own place where you have your meals, and sleep. Most rooms face onto a covered porch with a table which is open to the surroundings, but in the winter at least those porches are cold and you will want to head indoors into your room.

Set in the historic Bukchon neighborhood you will not only have an incredible comfortable stay but get a taste of Korean history and culture there's no way you'd get at a standard hotel. Speaking of taste, the breakfast and dinners (included with your stay) were delicious and an education in themselves. We arrived after a 24 hour journey from the States exhausted and were welcomed by Whoopi (our English speaking host) with a filling meal of traditional Korean style chicken soup and an abundance of sides. It was just what the doctor ordered. We were surprised though to find that we also enjoyed the traditional breakfast the next morning, the mackerel and rice porridge were really quite tasty. But when we were ready for the more familiar continental breakfast it was also fantastic; eggs, bacon the whole bit. Beyond the food the house is beautiful and soothing peaceful a piece of history with a lovely garden. Seoul can be a hectic bustling city but coming back to the house it felt like an oasis of calm.

The location is also ideal for sight seeing. People come from all over to check out the Bukchon neighborhood on our way in and out the outer door we'd see people coming by with maps in hand (you'd never know it once you're in the quiet house). Bukchon was historically an imperial neighborhood and so sits between two not-to-be-missed palaces. Not only are the palaces in walking distance so are a ton of the major sights of Seoul: the Blue House, Insadong market, and the Jongseya (sp?) temple. If all of that wasn't enough and you're up for a subway ride to, for instance, the quirky artsy Hungdae neighborhood, Whoopi was extremely helpful in providing directions. You're paying more than you might in other places (though remember dinner and breakfast are included) but given all this it was totally totally worth it to us. We are obviously pretty enthusiastic about Rak Jo Jae and Whoopi. We wanted to tip her when we left but she wouldn't hear of it. She told us that if we wanted to tip her we should write a review on Tripadviser. We've never written one before ever but here we are. Thanks Whoopi!

It worth to come to Seoul just to spend a couple of night at Rak Ko Jae. People are extremenly friendly. Service is much more than nice. Just know that traditional korean beds and food might be a little be difficult for some western people. It's a perfect place to taste korean food which is the best I had in Korea.

Beautiful hanok Well located in Buckchon area. Friendly staff but hardly no english. Word of caution : if you travel like us with a young child and some luggage, dont use the recommended limousine coach  for your transfer from/to airport (10,000 w per adult - 1 hour 1/2 trip) but rather get a taxi (95,000 w per trip) as there is some walking and no assistance from the guest house. On the commercial side, we were asked to pay a higher rate than the one agreed in the reservation email. During our stay we were supposed to move to a smaller cheaper room which was our choice, but the manager called us to ask us if we were happy to stay in the bigger room; he was a bit pushy and insisting than the other room would be too small - which we really didnt care. I was dismayed to see the other room was sold that night - hence the reason why he was pushy... For that reason, and the lack of assistance in helping us going to the bus station with our luggage, I was not happy to pay the full price and I consider it a slack commercial approach. For that sort of prices (275,000 w per night) you might expect better service and aid to/from airport

Dear guest, Thank you very much for choosing to staying with us at RakKoJae during your recent trip to Seoul. First and foremost, we must apologize that our services were not to your liking. We always try to provide warm, family-like service to all of our guests and we usually are successful in exceeding our guests' expectations. Indeed, taxi transfer from the airport is much more convenient than the airport limousine as there are no bus stops established within the Bukchon area. However, we recommend the limousine coach as the cost of the taxi transfer can be quite prohibitive to many travelers. There is a short walk involved to and from Anguk station and although it is not included within our services, we try our best to help our guests with luggage from the limousine stop whenever we have staff available. With regards to your guestroom, the Patio room (the smaller room that you had initially reserved) is a single room that normally can only accommodate one occupant. We had made an exception to be able to host you and your family as this was the only room available on the final night of your reservation. However, during your stay, our manager felt that it would be highly uncomfortable as there was a large amount of luggage involved and your child was much older than we had expected. As such, we had asked the guests checking into the larger room that night to switch rooms as their travel party was much smaller. We apologize for the miscommunication in the room change that made you feel that we are very commercial. We hope that you will return to us in the future and give us the chance to show you again what true Korean warm-hearted hospitality is like, without the aforementioned mishaps. Kind regards, Michael J. Ahn

I wanted to stay in (i) a traditional hanok in Seoul that (ii) offered a Korean breakfast. Rakkojae definitely filled the bill, and the breakfasts, different each day, were either excellent or even better.

I was a little surprised at how unprepared the staff was to help non-Korean speaking travelers with things like an in-advance train ticket or a ticket to a baseball game. (They helped me get the train ticket online when I pushed the issue, but they seemed as clueless about how to do it as I was.) They didn't do some of the little things that hotels usually remember to do, like giving me a card that I could use for taxis to find the place. (Of course I should have thought to ask because I did know there would be a language issue with taxis.)

I experienced some flaws that cause me to remove a point but these may not affect anyone else. I was originally going to stay in April in a room still to be built. I was assured it would be completed. I changed my booking to May and kept in touch and was told there were some delays but it would be ready. When I arrived, it was not ready. I was put in a larger room but required to unpack and repack to change to the reserved room after 2 days, and I really do everything to avoid this inconvenience. On the day I was to move, they were still getting the room ready and they didn't put in the air conditioning (part of promised amenities). The room is small with one small window and gets baking hot during the day. Aside from not liking to change rooms, the thing I hate even more is a too-hot room. I had to ask for a fan kind of insistently and eventually got one. No adjustment was made in the room charges, and I didn't ask for one.

Overall, this is a very good place. You should know that a traditional hanok involves some sacrifice of creature comforts compared to a comparatively priced regular hotel room, but for me the genuine character is worth it. This is one of the more expensive ones, but also one of the very best, located in the heart of the area of traditional hanoks. But I was not pleased with the way they handled getting the newly built room ready. (Once the a/c is installed it will be a great--though small--room.) They also should have offered a rate reduction for all the inconveniences.

Dear biophiliac, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are delighted to hear that you found the character of our hotel genuine and verify that we are one of the very best in the country. We do try our best to assist with all guest requests but at times our staff does experience challenges when they are above and beyond the standard requests that travelers make. We will work to expand the breadth of our knowledge to continuously satisfy our most exacting guests! Also, we apologize again that the renovation on your room experienced significant delays. We are operating in a protected and highly regulated area and sometimes, obtaining the necessary approvals is extremely tricky. Please do rest assured that this room has now been completed and the air conditioner has been installed. To be honest, we mistakenly did not expect one to be necessary on the first week of May! We hope you will give us another opportunity to welcome you - without repeating these flaws. If you reach out to me directly, I will ensure that you are properly compensated for the now non-existant inconveniences you had experienced. Best regards, Michael Ahn Executive Vice President Rakkojae Hanok Hotels

Dear guest, By bus: At the Incheon International Airport, proceed to Exit #5 and take the No. 6011 limousine bus. The bus will pass through downtown Seoul and drop you off at Anguk subway station. It will take approximately 1 1/2 hours from the Incheon Airport to Anguk station. By subway: The closest subway station is Anguk Station Line 3 (Orange line). Once you arrive at Anguk station, proceed to the No. 2 exit of Anguk station where a Dunkin Donuts shop is on your right.
