Guesthouse Mon Oncle a Seoul is a 'hanok' guesthouse located in Bukchon Hanok Village in Gye-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, in the alley on the hill right across from Seoul Choong Ang High School, which was often used as filming location for popular Korean TV dramas. Because it’s situated on a hill, guests can enjoy a charming view of the traditional Korean houses under the hill from the living room, a beautiful sunset view, and a view of Inwangsan Mountain in the distance. The guesthouse and the neighborhood are very quiet, which is very unusual considering the fact that it's right at the center of downtown Seoul. Built in 2015, the guesthouse is very clean and comfortable. Despite being a new building, it has all the characteristics of a traditional Korean house called 'hanok,' such as roof tiles, front yard, and 'ㅁ'-shaped buildings. Except for the kitchen and bathroom, which are modern, everything about the guesthouse is traditional. The living room is furnished with table and chairs for the guests to use. The kitchen is located in a corner of the living room, complete with kitchen sink, refrigerator, and washing machine open to all the guests.
The guesthouse has four rooms, two of which are barely big enough to accommodate up to two people. The two other rooms are big enough to accommodate up to five people. The rooms are mostly bare without any decor just like most of the rooms in traditional Korean houses, where the ceiling rafters are visible. Each room has traditional bedclothes, furniture, and lighting. A special discount rate will be applied to those who book the entire house or stay there for a long period of time.
Because the buildings in all four directions face each other, all the guests must pass through the front yard in order to go to or come out of their room. The front yard is not very big, but big enough for the guests to have a chat or enjoy barbecue. The living room serves as a cafe, where guests can share their experiences or have breakfast together. The guesthouse is designed this way because the owner of the guesthouse likes to mingle with people. He built the guesthouse not only for business but also to meet people who love to travel like him. He even named the place 'Uncle' because he wants to be close to his guests. He actually goes hiking with his guests and gives them a tour of the town. He’s also an excellent cook, so be sure to try the breakfast before starting your tour for the day.
