Welcome to KoRoot!


A guesthouse for

Korean adoptees

and their loved ones

We opened in July 2003 and we welcome more than 300 adoptees annually. Now we are closing by end of June 2023.

KoRoot Guest House was founded in July 2003 to help returning Korean adoptees to resolve the challenges faced in Korea by providing them with accommodation and assistance for family search orientations, interpreting, and providing information to ease them while they are staying in Korea.

KoRoot is a large residential home with a beautiful garden located between Bukhansan Mountain toward the north and the historical Gwanghwamoon district of Seoul toward the south. It is on several bus routes and about a 15 minute walk from Gyeongbukgung subway station.​

KoRoot Guesthouse has the capacity to host 14 guests daily and is providing around 3000 nights on a yearly basis. ​

KoRoot’s Guesthouse operation will come to an end. KoRoot Guesthouse will operate until the 30th of June 2023. For future and current guests who are planning to stay in KoRoot, please be aware that KoRoot will only accept reservations until June 30 and reservations after the said date will not be accepted.


We would like to thank all of those who supported KoRoot. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 


Even though our guest house will be closing, our other operations will still continue. (Such as advocating for the rights of adoptees, family seach assistance, publishing and research, and policy improvement)


We will notify you when a new location is decided for KoRoot’s new space.
