아이들과 힐링한 여행*

"엄마 둘이서 아이 셋을 데리고 하룻 밤을 재미있고, 편안하게 보내고 왔습니다. 한옥이지만 아주 깔끔하게 관리가 되어 있었고, 화장실이 방 안에 있고, 식수와 아침식사가 제공되어 편리했습니다. 또 침구와 낮은 온돌침대가 하루의 피로를 풀어주었습니다. 마당이 좀 좁긴 했지만, 사랑채 안의 거실 같은 공간에서 아이들이 상을 펴고 놀이도 하고, 그림도 그리며 놀기 좋았고 이 공간이 자는 공간과 분리되어 있어 쾌적했습니다. 주변의 현대미술관, 경복궁과 민속박물관을 둘러보며 아이들과 지내기에 위치도 좋았습니다. 다시 가고 싶은 ..."…"

However, there is only one 88 Guest House with an attached cafe/coffe house. 88 Guest House is located near Gyeongbok-gung Palace.
