Chiwoonjung, located in Bukchon Gahwa-dong, is also between Gyenbok Palace and Changgyeong Palace. The name Chiwoonjung is the name of pavilion which Kings stopped by during their road to palace.
High ranking officers and noble families also found this place to flourish politics, culture and art. It was the epicenter of Joseon Dynasty’s 500-year-old history.
As we entered to modern era, the place fainted from our memory. Lee Sook Hee, current owner who also runs prestigious Korean restaurant Durae for 25 years, carried on extensive renovation.
The renovation aimed for not only having modern taste comfortableness, but also bridging the 500-year-old Joseon Dynasty with modern times. Since modern appliances are mostly hidden, visitors can feel better Korean traditional beauty and taste than regular hanok, as well as same convenience of top class hotels.
Chiwoonjung is where 600 year-old-history lives. We are ready to add your precious time on that history with sincerity and pleasure.
