Was really fun staying in a traditional Korean guesthouse. Room was spacious and well decorated. Bathroom was functional. Location was great. Breakfast was cup of noodle, juice box, bread, basic cereal. The Yoo's were very friendly and accommodating. The only minor downside was no parking.
We wanted to stay in a traditional, Korean guesthouse (Han-Ok) and a friend told us about www.yoosfamily.com. It turned out that she had never stayed at the place but only heard about it. The location is great, about 50 meters from Chang-Duk-Gung and fairly easy...More
It was a pleasantly unique experience. The room was smaller than I imagined (even with a complimentary upgrade which was greatly appreciated). The bathroom amenities wasn't really what I was comfortable with but I managed to cope through it. The location, however, was excellent and...More
I stayed here for couple of days. The reason why I chose here, was to experience something new, something I can only enjoy in Korea. And I got what I exactly wanted. It is very Korean traditional inside and outside of the house. Also, this...More

If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighbourhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue
behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
