A guesthouse for international

Korean adoptees and loved ones

Welcome to KoRoot! 

We opened in July 2003 and we welcome more than 300 adoptees annually. 

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. 

Adoptees who stay at KoRoot Guesthouse come from a wide variety of backgrounds and nationalities, with diverse individual stories.


KoRoot strives to build global solidarity among overseas adoptees, working with and for the adoptee community, promoting sharing and exchange knowledge and friendship.


The staff and volunteers are warm and dedicated, and a valuable resource for many adoptees.

We hope to see you soon!
