I loved my stay - my only complaint was even though my room had a private bathroom, you had to go through the communal living room to get there, which was not convenient. The place is beautiful and the owner is great.

Wonderful Stay
While a little difficult to find, Xiwoo Hanok really gives an authentic feel to staying in Seoul. The 3 room Hanok had enough space for two people and while traditional, still had many comforts of home.

Traditional korean charm
Stayed for two nights and was very happy with the accomodation. Traditional guesthouse with all the charm that one would hope for. The rooms are small and you sleep on a futon which I was expecting and ws very happy with. On suite bathroom addition was nice and unexpected from a local guesthouse. Need to do some streatching before you go as neeling on cushions at the traditional table for breakfast can be a bit unconfortable for the non flexible like myself. The guesthouse is located near many major attractions and there are a lot of local food lanes offering some great variety, albeit a bit challenging as there are no translations or pictures.
