My family and I stayed at Tea Guesthouse for 5 nights late Septemebr 2009 and were very pleased with our choice of accommodation.

Stayed at the Tea Guest House for two nights and I definitely enjoyed it. The area is very quiet and it is walled in for privacy. The room is traditional Korean except that it has a computer with internet access and tv. The bathroom/showers are shared but never too far from a room. Breakfast is self-serve and is located outside...

Close to Anguk Station, a few hanoks (hanok = a traditional Korean house) can be found. This spanking clean hanok, however, was the best of all of them. The owner/operator speaks English and is fairly accommodating.

Neighbourhood Profile
Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean homes (called hanok), many of which are found in Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses, and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side streets attract locals and tourists alike for their quaint and charming scenery, while the Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae) serves as the residence for South Korea’s president. Art fans will love exploring the many independent and private art galleries in the area.
