According to their website, the name of this hanok hotel has a deep meaning, translating into: “A place where one can enjoy the traditions of times past and rest one’s soul.” Human national treasure, master carpenter Chung Young-jin, renovated this building that once hosted the 130-year old Jindan Academic Society and three other hanoks in the vicinity. These four hanoks surround a square courtyard with a pavilion, a chimney, and a fireplace. They are sizeable structures, especially when you consider that they are located in the middle of the urban center. The guest rooms feature white wallpaper and silk blankets filled with cotton wool. The hanoks are even equipped with Japanese bathing tubs and yellow soil jjimjilbang saunas that will banish the fatigue of weary travelers. Guests can try making kimchi or wearing a hanbok. Laundry is free.
