Follow Me To Korea: A Hanok Stay at a 130-Year-Old Property

Rakkojae Hanok Stay Bukchon

I have always wanted a staycation in a real Hanok. While many aesthetically pleasing Hanoks in the country are equally attractive, I wanted to experience staying in a living monument that pays tribute to the history, a traditional Korean home that wasn’t built just because it became trendy. And during my recent Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) Trip to Korea, I had the opportunity to stay at Rakkojae 락고재 樂古齋, a boutique hanok hotel built in the 19th century.

We stayed in the Patio room which features natural jade ondol flooring, a modern bathroom and an exclusive, traditional-style patio. The temperature went down to -18°C at night but the ondol kept the room warm and mattresses were thick and comfortable enough to sleep in. I like that the hotel strived to merge modern day comfort while retaining the authentic hanok experiences for their guests.

Breakfast at our very own patio was a highlight too! We were also very lucky to enjoy the Jjimjilbang all to ourselves during our stay. Read about my entire experience in detail here: Rakkojae Seoul Hanok Stay
