Every time I travel, the most important thing for me is to be able to understand and experience how local people live. Adding this dimension to the travel experience enriches your impression on the place and makes every trip way more exciting. This is one of the main reasons I really enjoyed my stay in Laotearoa Seoul. The rooms look authentic but with modern touches so you don't miss any comfort. Its prime location and close vicinity to main attractions make the stay easy and enjoyable.

I stayed here for Seoul tour with friends and was really impressed on the locatuon and all the amenties they have. It's near Gyeongbokgung Palace, so it was easy for me to get there without hassle. Also, I am very picky on restroom where I stay and this place has very modernized and convenient ones and host keeps the restrooms very nice and clean (4 restrooms). I strongly recommend this place for everyone~

Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed the night! Yes, the quality and the number of bathrooms are also my top consideration when I travel too. So I designed it in a way people like it and also allocated 4 separate ones so there is no rush for any case! ;-) It was great having a deep talk and grab beers together. You are always welcome back to us! I mean, please come back! Love, KJ

This is my second time here. Because the reception isn't 24/7 you really get the feel that you are at your own home. Everything is laid out perfectly so whatever your basic needs is there. This is how Korean families used to live before. Amazing experience. Want a traditional Korean trip? This will be the best place to complete your experience! Will I go back? Always. Because where I stay should always be something that completes my travelling experience.

Our stay at the Sopoong hanok was a wonderful experience for our family of four. We have two small children and this first visit to Korea made a lasting impression on them. KJ's accommodation, while small compared to a hotel, provided a very traditional experience with all the modern amenities that you would need. Each morning we woke up to the natural sunlight shining into the courtyard and the kids enjoyed KJ's complimentary cereal for breakfast. When we checked in, KJ made some traditional Korean tea for us which was delightful after a 7 hour flight. This is also in a fantastic location as it's just 5 minutes walk to the Gyeongbokgung palace and 10 mins walk to a food street filled with diverse restaurants. I would highly recommend this place if you want a unique experience in Seoul.
