Staying in a Traditional Jeonju Hanok
If you are visiting Korea, sleeping in a hanok at least once is a must. We stayed in one of these traditional Korean homes in the quaint village of Jeonju. This charming and cozy home was perfect for a weekend getaway. The room was simple, but I must say it was probably one of the most unique places we have stayed at.There is a lot to do in Jeonju besides just stay in a Traditional Jeonju Hanok. For ideas of what this awesome town has to offer, check out some of our favorites here.

We stayed at Dukmanjae Hanok Hotel.
The owner was a very warm and nice woman who spoke English very well. She did an amazing job making us feel at home. They had full amenities such as wifi, private bathrooms, communal kitchen for tea and coffee, tv and mini fridge in every room, and remarkably comfortable ondol beds, traditional floor beds in Korea. There was even a little garden outside with a bench and a dream pot. What is a dream pot you might ask? It’s literally a pot you write down a dream and place inside. How cute is that?

We were visiting during the Lunar New Year, so it was winter weather. Our heated floors were incredibly warm and made it hard to want to leave the room! The bathrooms were also very clean and better than what we have in our own apartment.
The ceilings were vaulted and had rustic wooden beams with a paper lantern hanging from it. We had sliding doors leading to the front entrance to keep the drafty cold air out of our room.
We ended up spending the better part of the evening drinking some makgeoilli and watching Korean television, even though we had no idea what was going on. It felt like a cozy home for the night and it couldn’t have been better.
