The Place Seoul opened its doors in May 2016 as a multi-purpose Korean traditional space.
Beyond serving teas or providing rooms for guests, we hope that diverse people come to our place and fill it up with meaningful thoughts and interactions. In this line of thought, we chose our motto as “the place to fill”.
The Place Seoul is a traditional Korean house, or hanik, with a small garden in downtown Seoul.
It is located right around the corner from the Changgyeonggung Palace, Insadong and Gyeongbokgung Palace in the vicinity. The building is a nice blend of traditional and modern elements.
During the daytime it is often used as a venue for meetings and photo shoots, but it won’t disturb your stay. If you are looking for a quiet place to rest in the city, ‘The Place Seoul’ is the right place for you.
The Place Seoul funds and supports NGOs supporting eco-friendly agriculture and healthy eating campaigns such as WWOOF Korea and the Korean Slow Food Association.
We provide simple, healthy homemade breakfast to all guests: homemade organic bread (vegan), homemade organic yogurts, organic jams, seasonal fruits, organic soy milk, organic teas, fair-trade coffee.
All sanitary products used at ‘The Place Seoul’ are eco-friendly.
