Good Location and Nice Place”
The guesthouse is near to MyeongDong shopping street. But need to climb a bit as the guesthouse is located on a hill. Also near to N Seoul Tower, walking distance to the cable car station. Also easily can get through to their public transport eg. subway and bus. Nearest Subway Station is MyeongDong Staion Exit 3. Clean room and quite big for 3 of us. The staff also very friendly and helpfull. TQ IU Guesthouse
우리 오빠 매우 친절하다”
Oppas are friendly and very very very kind! Thank you for helping us carry our luggages. Sorry for making you feel burdened that you even entered the train station to help us. Thank you so so much! They always clean the rooms everyday. And since East Asians use small towels, you can ask for big towels for free if you're not used to small towels. They are like friends to us. We will come and stay again there the next time we come back :) 감사합니다!
Guesthouse near to metro myeong-dong1 (EXIT 3), you have to walk around 10minute but the guesthouse up hill. Staff very friendly. Room clean and big. Infront the guesthouse have very small shop, 85 year old lady own that shop please buy something from the shop. She alone dont have any children.
Staff Good ，Room clean ，location great ！
Very comfortable. 2 thumbs up for the service. ”
We were very satisfied. We were upgraded at a larger room with no charge when the owner see that we were bringing huge luggages. He even offer free car service to lotte mall and accompany us down the street to show us the places to eat. Thank you very much mr sun ho. This is the best guest house we ever been.
I think the best part is having fantastic owners who you know care about you. From waiting for us to arrive even if it means sleeping late for them, to checking our rides to and from the airport, to suggesting how we best schedule our itinerary, to recommending the must-eats and must-do's in the place, to providing the house tools we need, and to being open to talk about anything made us feel we've got good friends away from home. Big thumbs up. Highly recommended.
A cozy lovely hotel in Center Seoul”
The owners are very kind and lovely, they always smile and treat us like family. They even gave me some gifts and introduced to us cheap and nice locals restaurant. Thank you very much! We will come back Seoul for shopping and see you again soon. Kamsahamida! Sarangheyo ~ đẹp trai oppa ❤️
Super friendly and helpful staff. Location is superb! ”
The guesthouse is clean and is at a superb location. Super near to Myeong-Dong for all your eating and shopping essentials. The best part about the guesthouse is the owner. He was very Fantastic. Walked my friends and I to a restaurant after a late check in, helped bought us tickets for the Nanta show and walked us there to collect it and best of all, surprised a friend with a birthday cake after finding out that it was his birthday. Highly recommended! :)
Worst and Fraudulent Guesthouse. Terrible Experience!!!!!”
1. Inspite we arrived early morning,we left our baggages with them because the room is not yet ready.They informed us later that evening that they overbooked and couldnt accomodate us. We are already fully paid prior the arrival 2.Inconveniently transferred us to a cheaper guesthouse and did not refund our money. 3.They only paid for the 2 nights.And did not even bother to check nor paid for the remaining days.They promised to settle but they deceived us. It is shameful and felt very humiliated. 4.Deliberately they did not inform Agoda that they made a mistake on our booking as if our accomodation was fully consumated. 5.Consequently our iterinary was not followed because we have to deal with the problem. We even paid additional for our accomodation, food and flight ticket to extend our stay in order to settle the problem. 6.Despite all our efforts they disregarded our claims. 7.Due to said incident all our transaction and dealings were cancelled if not delayed.
the location is quite convenient. if you are going to go shopping in myeongdong, stay here. and if you are going to visit namsan tower, stay here. the cable car from and to N-seoul tower located just 200 m from the hostel, and cost only 9000 won for round trip. you can ask the staff to show you the way to the cable car.
very nice place and good location. plus the staff are great! Mr. Fantastic is the most awesome, he showed us around his area and tell us the best food and shop around! We are lucky to get this hotel. two thumbs up here. rock on ;)
Friendly staff, near to train station and shopping”
It was a good stay minus the family room is kinda small for 5 adults and the steep road heading to the hotel. Location was good, near to restaurants, shopping area, 5 minutes walk to train station. Staff were very friendly, provide us with information and prepare breakfast for us. They even help to carry our luggage to the train station.
Clean and comfortable”
We stayed for 4 nights and we found the room was comfortable.it was 4 of us and the guesthouse happens to have a quadruple room and it is right on the first floor.Location was excellent bcs it is close to namsan tower,myeongdong,the cathedral and the subway station (though the road going to giesthouse was pretty steep).My friends and I love the rooftoop and the staffs are very helpful and friendly.Definitely recommended for budget travellers.
next to Namdaemun maket, execellent staff”
It was a pleasant stay for my families. The host is very helpful, especially for bus and ferry booking, because all these websites are only in Korean. The location is good, next to Namdaemun market and close to subway even though the hotel is a bit challenge to find. Highly recommend.
Best Guesthouse Host Ever”
It was a great stay. Sunho the manager offered the best service we've ever received from any hotel/hostel/guesthouses! We arrived at Seoul past midnight and Sunho actually came to pick us up at Seoul Station at 1am!! He and his staff offers good valuable tips for food and trips, and they saw us off halfway downhill when we left in the cold winter night! The location of the guesthouse is very good - 5mins uphill walk from Myeong Dong station away from all the buzz, so if you don't mind the walk, it's perfect. Rooms were quite big for a guesthouse, and the bed was big and comfy with necessary amenities (fridge, hairdryer, water, sofa, towels, shampoo and shower gel). The hardware of the bathroom can be improved though. E.g. The shower head shoots the water at the bathroom door so water leaks out of the door quite easily; There are no clothes hangers in the bathroom and the only towel rail is located right under the shower head so can't really be used; there is no shelf for toiletries above the wash basin. We see that some tiny tweaks such as putting some hooks/hangers behind the bathroom door, installing a small shelf above the water tap, etc can improve the user experience significantly!
Friendly and cosy feeling homestay”
The guesthouse owner is very friendy and approachable. He is able to speak good command of english and able to help and assist for any problems. The location is great in myeongdong but need to go uphill for a short distance. closed to many nearby attraction and metro station. This is newly renovated guesthouse so that the room is BIG and CLEAN. Great speed WIFI and TV compared to other guesthouse in seoul! I will highly recommend family or group of friends to stay this hostel when in seoul! Highly recommended!!! Thank you house owner for giving us the good and memorable experience in seoul!
Very clean room, comfortable bed, fast wifi, nice ”
Very clean room, comfortable bed, fast wifi, nice staff, and convenient location Good hospitality, staff are friendly and very helpful. - The location is convenience nearby shopping area and resturants.
Such a nice guesthouse, i do recommend staying...”
It was so joyful to stay in this place.. although you need to get a little bit uphill every time, but the guesthouse is just right underneath the Namsan tower ( it's quite close to the public uphill elevator) and you can enjoy a great view in the evening on both top of the mountain and guesthouse.. There are two tube stations within 5 to 10 mins walk...and 3min away from Myelng-dong. There is also airport express (bus station).. English, Japanese, Chinese and of course Korean are all available so no worries with communications! The stuff are also being really helpful in suggesting you where to go and where you can buy the thing you want in a relatively cheap price, so do not feel shy to ask :)) oh well.. i really had a great time with them and hopefully this would help with choosing!! Will definitely get back some time in the future :))
First,the location is strategic. The most popular place of myeongdong only opposite the guesthouse and less than 5 minutes reach the N Seoul tower. Second is the cleanliness. The guesthouse is quite clean and comfortable. Third is staff performance. We are very satisfied with the staff performance.they are friendly and nice.
Very good ”
Really have a good and friendly staff, bigger room form others guesthouse. Clean and will book this guesthouse in future !
