Loved it!
My stay was really nice! I was sent a confirmation text right after booking with directions from the subway station to the guesthouse and it was pretty easy to find. The area it's surrounded by is really nice and right next to a bunch of museums and palaces! It's also surrounded by tons of shops, cafes, and restaurants. I chose to travel around, but I could have easily stayed in that area with zero problems. The staff were incredibly friendly and knew a bit of English. The single room is smaller than it appears in the pictures, but it was still really nice, clean, and has plenty of room for me and my things. You also get a private bathroom. It's small, but average for most Korean style bathrooms and had everything I needed. There's an AC unit inside the room, too, and the floor is heated, so I was super comfortable. If I had to guess the size laying down, I would say it's about roughly 185-190 cm, so, if you're taller than that, it might be a bit of a squeeze. Breakfast was served in the morning (homemade bibimbap) and was really lovely. The garden area is just as pictured. I would absolutely book again!

Super quartier mais gare au confort !
Guesthouse très photogénique mais tellement typique pour le folklore touristique ( confort sommaire , chambre et salle de bain exiguës) qu'une seule nuit ( au lieu de 4) nous aurait été suffisante pour apprécier le pittoresque de l'endroit. Par contre,quartier idéal avec accès à pied à tous les sites touristiques environnants , nombreux restaurants et boutiques.

Un logement charmant, au coeur du Séoul historique
Le logement, de type traditionnel, est très confortable et très pratique. Sophia Guesthouse est un endroit charmant, situé dans un quartier idéalement situé dans Séoul, entre Gyongbokgung, Changdeokgung et Insadong. Beaucoup de centres d'intérêt peuvent être rejoints à pieds et pour le reste la station de métro Anguk est très proche. Dans les environs immédiats, on trouve des restaurants, des cafés (il y a un glacier adorable juste au coin de l'impasse où se trouve le logement) et un musée d'art moderne et contemporains tout neuf ! Le petit déjeuner est copieux et délicieux, idéal pour attaquer une journée de découverte de Séoul. Nous recommandons chalheureusement !

Location is perfect! Outside the guesthouse, there are cafe and Bar. Turn around to be the shopping street. Only 8 mins walk you can arrival Insadong and Samcheongdong. If you want to go shopping or enjoy Tea House or Tradition Korea food, this place is very convince. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. We love the room and it was very clean. The Breakfast was very yummy. I took my family there two days ago, we have super great time there. If we come to Seoul again, for sure we will stay here.
