Convenient and reasonable price

Location, Staff Performance, Clean
I had a good experience throughout my stay. There is one improvement Kimchee Guesthouse can help to improve the customer experience was to change the bed frame. The wooden is almost broken and the bed is supported by 3 metal rods only.
