Cheong Yeong Jae Hanok Hotel

Experience the Korean Beauty and Scent of Hanok

Cheong Yeon Jae means ‘a place to create pure and honest bonds that will lead the most precious relationships in life’. Cheong Yeon Jae is an over 80-year old traditional Hanok (Korean traditional house) hotel located right between Seoul’s two most iconic tourist attractions: GyeongbokGung Palace and ChangDeokGung Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

It preserved the traditional beauty of Korean traditional house but added a few contemporary aspects, which is what makes the ‘Hanok’ truly unique.

Although its location is right in the middle of the metropolitan city of Seoul, Cheong Yeon Jae provides the highest comfort and serene atmosphere to make you feel at home.

Cheong Yeon Jae was built in 1936 based on the traditional Korean house style and it was built with natural materials such as wood, stone, and red clay. The frames of doors and windows are delicately covered with a unique type of paper, “Hanji”, made from tree pulp, and the roof is topped by matte tiles called “Kiwa” which are made from processed soil.

Another interesting feature is the Korean traditional heating system: “Ondol”. When the solid stone platform under the soft flooring is heated up, the heat spreads up into every room of the house, keeping both the floor and the air warm and cozy during the winter.

The hotel’s structure is exactly based on the traditional structure, made up of the main building, a detached side building, the “servant’s” quarters, an open courtyard and also a beautifully aged brick wall which surrounds the whole vicinity. This place is truly the right place for a rest and an escape from the busy outside world.
