This was a cheap, clean place. It's a little old/run down, but it's a great place to stay with friends or as a solo traveler.

It’s a marvelous place. The host lives in the house and maintains his place extremely well. The family is very polite and helping. The room we stayed had all sorts of sprays and protection from mosquitoes and also had filtered water for free.

        after getting off airport bus on arrival the taxi spent a long time finding it
        the proprietor was excellent-sooo friendly & helpful-wherever we wanted to visit he had excellent instructions on using the subway and bus system combined. He provided many suggestions of places to visit we hadn't even thought of. Small loby & small room but more than adequate-heated floors! very firm comfortable bed!no restaurant on site but plenty nearby!

        The train is the Aokoku station on line 3, and the line 1, 3 and 5 at Jongno 3 streets is the nearest station.Bus stops and limousine bus stops from Incheon are also nearby.Taxi is also easy to catch because the main street is nearby. So transportation is very nice. There are some convenience stores near the hotel, and the closest convenience store is next to several buildings of the hotel. the hotel is an old building so you may feel a little dark atmosphere. However, they do cleaning every day, and they change towels as well. Towels are washed but quite old. In various ways, it is not suitable for people with cleanliness. Everyone's staff is very kind and they will listen carefully. A young staff can speak both "English and Japanese". i recommend to you=)

        I would definitely recommend Yims House to anyone I know would be visiting Seoul. The location is great, as it is nearby the Anguk MRT and the Airport Shuttle is just walking distance. All their staff are very friendly and are most helpful in providing instructions and recommendations as to where you would want to go. Our room is clean and tidy, has TV and a mini ref. Over-all, I am very satisfied with Yims House and would stay again there, in my next Seoul visit.

        The hotel is located within easy walking distance of Insadong, the city centre and the Dongdaemun market area. There are temples to visit. It is practically next to a major royal palace. The area still has traditional narrow streets and bukhchon houses. The staff speak good English and go out of their way to be helpful. The express coach to Incheon Airport stops nearby.

        Staff was friendly & worked hard to please us. Nice view of Changdeokgung Palace from our window.
        Hard to find hotel, the listed address is not the same as street names. No taxi drivers could find it. Take Exit 3 of Angok Station, walk past the palace (about 5 minutes), it is across the street on the left, up an alley. Staff was very friendly & helpful. Standard Asian hotel room, good A/C. Wifi in lobby only.

        The room was small but clean and came with 3 small towels. Conveniently located. Equipped with an elevator. Drinking water & 2 desk top for internet. No breakfast, no curfew, and no self-service laundry. The check in time was late . I was told to come back at 3pm but luckily they had a room available by 2:30pm. Different from guesthouses near by for its quiet ambience, more suitable for people on a business trip.

        Nothing
        Accessibility - Hard to locate, most taxi driver don't know the place. Need to walk 7 mins to Subway which i think is quite far especially walking during the cold weather. Airport bus is near. Very near to Changdeukgung too. Wifi - No wifi available in the room, you need to go to Ground Floor (business centre). There are 2 computer at the business centre but during night time, it's closed Room - Clean and tidy. But small. Water pressure is low. Friendliness - During the first few days Yes... but on the last day when you are about to leave, the owner is not as friendly as before... we wanted to borrow a vacuum they don't have a vacuum. I wonder how can a guesthouse operate without a vacuum? Later realised that vaccum place next to business centre but owner doesn't want to borrow it. We want to extend our room for 4 hours but owner request to pay half of the room rate which i think is not reasonable. End up we are force to check out and waited in the airport. Food - Restaurant and food store open very late morning around 11.30am. Hard to find a place for breakfast. Convenient store is available - you can buy instant noodle or sandwich for breakfast. Food store close at 9.30pm - 10pm. Make sure you eat before go back to the guesthouse or else you can't find any food nearby.

        Our room looked exactly like what the website showed. Rooms were larger than expected with hard beds, hand towels for bath towels and no shower curtin or room amenities. However, there was shampoo, body wash and tooth paste in bathroom. There was heated floors, A/C and window that open. Location is about 10 mintues walk from Agnuk station and there are a few palaces within walking distance. Airport shuttle 6011 gets you to Gyeongbok station, its 15-20 mintues walk in the same direction the bus is travelling, right turn into lane way when you see Nescafe and service station. Staff friendly and helpful on where to go and how to get there.

        Yim's is conveniently located within walking distance of many tourist sights. Staff were very pleasant, spoke good English, and were very helpful. Room was nice size, very clean, but spartan- no frills. Bathroom clean but no separate shower- just a spray shower that goes right onto Bathroom floor. But it gets the job done. Great value.

        Close to Insadong while removed from the hustle and bustle.
        Nothing glaring comes to mind when recalling the visit. I had a really good experience here.
        I found Yim's Guesthouse to be in a convenient location near all the places I wanted to visit. It's really close to Insadong, not far from Dongdaemun and Cheongyyecheon. It's not difficult to find and the map on the website is perfectly accurate and led me straight there. From my judgements, the hotel is about equidistant to the Anguk and Jongro-ga 3 subway stations. Beyond the location, what really made this a great place for me was the staff. I stayed for several days and within the first day, all staff members remembered which room I was in and where I'd come from. I arrived at the hotel before they'd finished cleaning my room (just before noon), so they offered to hold my bags for me so I could explore the neighborhood and grab some lunch. I don't know if it was because of the wait or not, but Mr. Yim upgraded me to a nicer room than what I'd paid for at no cost. I've stayed at several other hotels in Seoul that were more expensive and borderline disgusting, but I was comfortable and happy staying at Yim's. I plan on staying at Yim's when I visit Seoul from here on out. Thanks, Yim!

        Very very clean and tidy. The owner of this hotel Mr Yim is very friendly and accommodating. Perfect location - walking distance to Insadong and Myeongdong, Gwanghwa Mun. Plus, very good price. Value for money. Super recommend! Will definitely stay again.
        I can't think of any weakness given the price at that location and the friendliness of Mr Yim.
        I stayed there for 8 nights. It was a very safe place to stay. Cozy and clean. The bed, sheet and pillow were all very very comfortable. The toilet was very clean (incredibly clean). Far more beyond my expectation. I have never imagined a budget hotel could be maintained so perfect. As for food, I haven't experienced so can't give comments.

        Firm, comfortable bed, air conditioning, cable TV, filtered water dispenser, close proximity to Insadong and two subway stations.
        I really enjoyed my three nights' stay at this small hotel, which is located near two subway stations as well as tourist attraction Insadong. The staff was courteous and helpful, and seemed fluent in (at the very least) English and Japanese. The room was clean and comfortable, and featured a double set of windows that blocked out any potential street noise. The hot/cold water dispenser at the end of the hall was a nice touch. Westerners may have to get used to the reality of "bathroom as shower," but I had no problem with it. I'd definitely stay here again.
