[tour] The Hanok Spa & Guesthouse


The Hanok Spa & Guesthouse

If you have family or friends visiting from out of town who need a place to stay, why not recommend one of Daegu’s finest Hanok guesthouses. The Hanok Spa & Guesthouse gives you a unique opportunity to experience sleeping in a traditional Korean house. It is located in Dongseongro, right in the heart of Daegu, an area which still retains some its original architectural elements from the past.




The restoration of the guesthouse was completed earlier this year. It was once a traditional house. It was first constructed back in the early 1950’s. Many of the buildings structures have been preserved. There are also remnants of old Japanese style architecture.




What is special about the Hanok Spa & Guesthouse is that it has an outdoor swimming pool and a sun deck great for cooling off in the scorching heat. The rest of the building has a very industrial and urban feel. It’s a perfect common place atmosphere for groups of friends, guests, and staff to hang out and relax.




Henry Kim is the director of this particular restoration. He is a real estate entrepreneur who is trying to make an impact by investing in building restoration. He wants to enhance the urban cityscape while still retaining its cultural integrity and preserving its historical significance. The building located next to the guesthouse is undergoing similar restoration and modification.





Normally, you would have to sleep on the floor in a traditional Hanok house but this guesthouse has a room with a bed for more comfort.



Sometimes the owners host events and pool parties in an effort to bring travelers and the local community together.

They have a unique café and a basement that functions as a gallery, studio, and occasional venue for local bands.
