Fantastic and well worth it
Staff assistance, room facilities, location
When we arrived at the Daelim Residence we were pleasantly surprised. As we walked in the front door there was a welcoming sign printed out with my name on it. The girl on the counter showed us to our room and explained how to use everything, including the washing machine in the room. We even had hotel cards with money attached for phone calls to the hotel in the event of being lost. The room had a desktop computer, microwave, pull out washing line and a bathroom bidet, the classiest one we have seen. In addition to the warm seat, the warm bidet wash and dryer, it has a night light in it. The refrigerator and freezer are full size and the TV is large with several English channels. The manager went out of his way to assist us, first with emails advising how to get there but while there he even drove us to a shopping centre where my wife had her nails and hair done. There is free coffee and hot chocolate machine at the entrance and water machines are on the different floors of the hotel When we left we were given a parting gift. While they rate this a 2 star, it really has so much more going for it. A great spot in Seoul with the Guro subway and a large store (AK PLaza) only a few minutes walk away.

Fantastic!
Location, staff and cleanliness
This was my 4th stay in Daelim Residence since June 2013 and I am certainly looking forward to my 5th. Daelim offers everything a guest would need ie. comfortable and clean rooms, cooking facilities and utensils, washing machine, iron and ironing board, heated floor and shower (for winter), TV, high speed wifi (which is important to business travellers like me), etc. The owner, Mr. Jang, and his staff pay attention to every detail to make the stay as comfortable as possible. For someone who arrives early Seoul in the morning, I really appreciate the fact that I am able to check-in early without any additional cost if there is a room available. I was also pleasantly surprised that they offer limited units of "mobile wifi egg" at no cost to those who stayed longer than 5 days. For a business traveller, this sure helps a lot. Moving around is a breeze as Daelim is located a mere 5 minutes walk from the Guro subway station. AK Plaza is connected to Guro Station and there's a Lotte Mart in the basement, where I got my snacks, food and drinks. There are roadside hawkers selling fruits and food near AK Plaza and quite a few restaurants and drinking places too. And if you want to try Chinese food, Mr. Jang also operates a Chinese restaurant which serves delicious "chajangmeun". My advise is to try this small residence out. You will never regret it and who knows, you may even make it your preferred hotel in Seoul.

great stay
nice and helpful staff, nice boss and great room
I stayed here for a total of 8 days. Right from the start when you do the booking via agoda, Mr Jung will personally email you some direction and even short video clip to guide you to the hotel. This place is well-maintained and it was either fully sold-out or 99% sold out most of the time. Will advised people to try to book early to avoid disappointment. Upon departure, Mr Jung will also present a small gift to the guest, which I appreciated alot. in winter, the heater system works well, if you do feel warm, just open the window for some ventilation and it is as cooling as having air-conditioned. Will definitely come back if I visit Seoul again. Thank you Mr Jung, his staff for providing such a wonderful accommodation experience for me and my family.

Surprised to see the thoughtful gesture of welcoming guests with names posted on the wall. So we kinda know names of other guests which is unusual and other guests may not feel too comfortable about (but it's ok to us). We were offered welcome drinks, orientation of the room, photo souvenir and parting gifts. Also had free flowing coffee and hot chocolate at the corridor. Hotel is located about 5 mins walk from Guro subway station.Also located close to limousine bus to and from the airport so it's quite convenient.
