Dream stays for every budget.

Staying in the real houses of local citizens is one of the best ways to get a taste of the local culture, and
these guest stays in Seoul, South Korea’s capital city, run the gamut—from ultra-modern micro-lofts to
14th Century Hanok homes—here are a few of our favourites.

Modern Tree Sky Cloud Condo

Everywhere you look this place shouts modern urban Seoul! Concrete walls, minimalist wood furniture, a rain shower and picture windows to a tree-framed city view. A fully equipped kitchen makes home cooking a fun option, plus there’s dining space for eating in—all this at $60 per night.  Find out more here.

Your Authentic Korean Dream House

It’s another traditional Hanok but this one is where the celebrities would stay. Vintage tapestry art, a large tea room with views of the garden, a luxurious bedroom decorated with whimsical sheer curtains and more—it’s your own private Korean dream house. It doesn’t get better than this. Sleeps up to three, and is located in central Seoul for $289 per night. Find out more here.

Twentieth-Floor Greenhouse

You’re on top of the world, and you can eat up there, too! Not only does this stay in Seocho-gu sleep five, but there’s a special glass dining room on the roof, as well as a lounge area and a ready-to-go Korean barbecue. Find out more.

Spa Hanok House

This recently renovated Hanok is a traditional Korean house made entirely of pine and is one of the best you’ll find in Gangwon-do. The family-style room can fit up to three people and there’s an open-air bath and steam sauna (zen vibes, here we come!). And did we mention breakfast is included? From $211 a night. Find out more here.

Designer Penthouse

In the face of all the tiny urban condos is this sprawling, roomy gem: the designer penthouse has everything, multiple reading nooks with Gangnam views, fluffy white hotel-style beds, a full chef’s kitchen, an eight-person dinner table for entertaining and a jacuzzi-style hot tub right up against the window where you can soak in bubbles, sip bubbles and marvel at the city. Sleeps eight, with two bedrooms, 2.5 baths and runs at $421 per night. Find out more here.

Little Forest Loft in Gangnam

One look at the bent wood wishbone chairs against a backdrop of bamboo jungle and you’ll be sold. This well-appointed, bright and sunny loft opens up onto its own urban garden terrace, perfect for morning coffees with your SO—plus there’s room for kiddos or another couple with enough beds for four. From $127 per night.  Find out more here.

Urban Glamping and Korean Barbecue

With a rooftop glamping tent hangout and barbecue set up for large groups (not to mention a stellar city view), this is the perfect spot for a family or bachelor/ette getaway. The host has prepped the home so it’s party-ready, but this ain’t no hostel. Its chic and clean styling inside the rooms means it’s also suitable for adults who are used to fine boutique hotels. Moody Place, as it’s called, can fit eight guests, and only runs $184 a night.  Find out more.

Private Rooftop Barbecue

Another wicked spot for groups, this Airbnb shines with a private rooftop courtyard with sofas and palm decor for rooftop cocktails and dinners. Plenty of space inside, beds for five and the stocked kitchen are just icing on the cake.  Find out more here.

Cozy Lake View House

They tend to use the term “house” very liberally in Korean Airbnb listings, but this is a loft-style apartment so perfectly decorated and inviting it looks like it’s straight out of a Korean Ikea catalogue. Curl up with a book after a day of exploring and enjoy your sweet lake and Lotte World Tower view, from $103 per night.  Find out more here.

Han River View Condo

The styling is modest, but so is the price. And at $89 a night it’s hard to believe you can get THAT view. For when a queen-sized bed, panoramic view of the Han River and a central Seoul spot close to markets, restaurants and cafes are all you need.  Find out more here.
