Very good 8.2 From 27 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
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!

Warmest welcomes and perfect location
If traveling to Korea, experience a traditional guest house. Sophia Guest House was amazing, the owners living right there attentive to every need. Walk out the door to microbreweries, restaurants, locals, tourists, the palace, everything! The kids are still asking to return, to sleep on the heated floors, and enjoy the attention of the family.
