Superb 9.0 From 50 reviews

Good 6.0
There are much better options in Insadong
We're used to staying in Ryokans in Japan, so the minimalness of the room was not a problem. The mattress, however, was one of the thinnest and hardest we've ever slept on. Not acceptable at all. The description stated free bottled water, but it was only available for sale. In all, this was not a good value for money.

The host was very generous and accommodating! Very clean In a traditional Korean-style dwelling (hanok) Located a short walk from the Gyeongbokgung Palace.

What a great place. Very cozy and so, so welcoming. I’m working over in China and know that I’ll definitely be returning to Raon in the not too distant future. I loved the neighborhood, it was super easy to get to and from the airport, and the building itself was beautiful. It is not a traditional hotel setting, so if you need perfect silence or a Western mattress, then it may not be the right fit. For anyone else, though, I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Perfect place
I have been there for a 6 nights and after that came for my last night in Korea. The location is perfect: very close to public transport and airport limusine, Insadong street, palace, restourants, vilage and other tourist attractions. On the other hand, the place is very silent and cozy. Rooms are clean. Stuff speak very good English and very friendly. You can book with them a trip to DMZ (do it in advance if you want to go to JSA) and you will pay significately low promotional price. So I can summarize my experience as very good. Thank you
