                  Best place to stay in Korea...PERIOD.”

                  Service - WAY over and beyond, Cleanliness - could not find anything unclean if you tried, Personal Attention - they did things specifically for us that they normally wouldn't do

                  It is simply the best place to stay in Seoul, period. Not the best value, the best place. I have stayed in places that were easily twice as expensive and not as half as nice. Let's just say I would much rather stay there then even 4 or 5 star hotels - even if they were the same price. Of course you are going to think that I'm exaggerating. Let me give you just few of the examples that I experienced. First of all, I've never been anywhere where I've felt more welcomed, my own family included - and that's no knock on my family. Eugene, the manager, was a fantastic cook in the morning, making us full service breakfast sandwiches that were absolutely delicious that in Seoul would have easily cost $8-10 each. Mind you, we didn't pay all that much for the room so that's saying a lot. Second of all, the owner was there quite often (very nice man) and offered us ride the first morning we checked in to the subway station near by. Totally didn't need to do that but he did. Third of all, we were there to adopt our daughter to being her home. They could not have been more friendly and accommodating to our special situation, asking us non stop if we needed anything. If you don't read anything else about this review, READ THIS - the owner bought us a fancy cake from a very expensive bakery (Paris Baguette - for those of you who are familiar) the day after we took custody of our daughter to help us celebrate with the adoption. The cake literally cost them about 60% of the cost of the room for one night that we were staying at. Who does that? Do 5 star hotels do that for you? I don't think so. I can literally go on and on with examples similar to those above. This is one of those reviews I hate to write because I fear that it will become so popular and we won't be able to get a room the next time we are in Seoul at Lee Kang Ga. Next time we are in Seoul, there's only one place for me. In closing, my wife and I bought the guest house a small gift because they did that much for us.

                  Great New Guesthouse in Seoul ”

                  The 3 best things about this guesthouse were the staff,the standard of the accommodation and the value for money

                  Lee Kang Ga Guesthouse was Brilliant. We booked last minute as we needed somewhere to stay at short notice and within an hour we were called back by the manager to say that they were going to upgrade us for no extra charge so we could experience the traditional Korean room. This was a really nice room,very clean and a good size with great facilities. The staff were great,Eugene the manager was very friendly, helpful and gave us useful advice. This guesthouse is new so everything is really clean and they have a great area for breakfast and relaxing if you don't want to stay in your room. I can't recommend this guesthouse enough and our visit was even topped off by the owner dropping us at the train station in his car!

                  Staff, Cleanliness, Service

                  Not exactly on the “hip” area but close enough if peace and quiet are what you’re after. It’s a 15-minute walk to the Hongdae district or the Hongik Station and taxis are easy to find once you walk out to the main street. Located on the top floor of a beautiful brick residential building, Lee Kang Ga was easy to find. We just followed the thorough instruction complete with photos and costs that were emailed to us upon booking. The rooftop, where the kitchen and dining area is, is a cozy place to hang around and meet up with other guests and staff after a day of travelling. Simple and tasty breakfasts are served here from 8-10am. Unlimited tea, juice, coffee, milk and cereal is available all day. The room, although lacks side tables and lamps for reading, is comfortable and sufficient in other ways. The one thing I especially love is its heated floor. The bathroom is snug but efficient. It has everything from shampoo to toothpaste and enough shelves to put other toiletries. The friendly staff and owner are the key value to this guesthouse. Andy and Roomy are like family and very accommodating. If available, the owner would offer to drive us to the subway station. It was raining on the day of our departure and we requested for a ride, the owner was busy but made sure someone brought us to the station. Highly recommended and one of the few that I will consider booking again.

                  Very complete and tastefully renovated room and most importantly it's super clean!

                  One of the place that I've missed most after I left Korea. Very complete and tastefully renovated room and most importantly it's super clean! The kitchen at roof top serves hot and delicious breakfast every morning. I have met few friends and happily shared the experiences we had over the breakfast table which facing an awesome garden. Eugene, the manager of Lee Kang Ga is super helpful and speaks very good English! She helped us to find out nearest hospital and checked appointment status for a friend of ours whom suspected pneumonia. I even overheard she she helped to check for the best salon nearby. I will be back! Eugene as well as Mr. Owner @ Lee Kang Ga, please stay happy and healthy~

                  10 minutes walk to the guesthouse or convenient transport from metro exit. I love the traditional Korean style interior design of the room, and the staffs were really nice to us. They helped me to prepare a birthday surprise to my boyfriend. Really thanks to them. Lee Kang Ga is a good choice for re-stay when I come to Seoul next time.

                  This Place is Awesome!!!”

                  Friendly staff, warm homely feel and nice interior design

                  When getting to Lee Kang Ga, we had some problems and lost our way due to its secluded spot. However once we stepped into the place the interior have already won our hearts. The service from the staff is impeccable. They were very friendly and made us feel at home and helped us in any way they can. Despite some minor improvements, which any place would need, the stay in this guesthouse was the best so far.

                  I wish I can post photos cuz the rooftop view is amazing! The decorations of the rooftop r super cute and sweet. And the staff r so welcoming and friendly! Besides the location is bit far from the station, I would give a 10/10 score to Lee Kang Ga guest house. Hope to stay there again during summer

                  Friendly staffs, beautiful rooftop view with breakfast, traditional korean room”

                  Overall we enjoyed our stay in this guesthouse. Room was clean and staffs were friendly. I was allowed to check in early at 12pm. Mr Lee served us decent breakfast every morning, and we enjoyed the view at the rooftop. I booked Korean Traditional Ondol Room B during my stay as it has a balcony. However, I got the different room from what it displayed from Agoda website, which is much smaller and no balcony. After checking with the staff, I understand that they actually have 2 types of Korean Traditional Ondol Room B, one with balcony (bigger room) and one without balcony (smaller room). Appreciate if both guesthouse and Agoda can update the photos so it will not create misunderstanding to the guest. Another point is this guesthouse is not very near to metro station, it requires 10-15mins walking distance. It might be a hassle if you drag big and heavy luggage.

                  Best accommodation ever!”

                  beautiful breakfast; nice and caring staff; clean and tidy room

                  It is a little but beautiful guesthouse near Hongik. All staff are with bright smiles and take good care of us. It is quiet convenient to take No.6 bus from exit 2 to the guesthouse, though if we do walking it is quiet far away The staff tried to fulfil every request. We can enjoy free laundry and currency exchange (USD to Won) On the last day, the boss heard us afraid of luggage overweight and generously lend us the electronic scale and drove us to the subway station They give us free banana milk celebrating the children's day Breakfast -we can have our breakfast surrounded by music and plants -in either Korean or Western style, all beautifully made -My friend as a vegetarian can enjoy her meal cause the meat will always replaced by salad or fruit Room-double studio I'll describe it by a Chinese saying--麻雀雖小,五臟俱全 (small but complete in details) Advantages -a brilliant point: password lock i.e. we don't have to worry about how to keep the key -The room is decorated in traditional Korean style. The bed is large enough for us, the mattress is thick and comfortable -the refrigerator is so useful to keep the food bought from lotte mart -layers of window to keep us warm at night, and not disturbed by insects -provide both room slippers and bathroom slippers, so the room will not become wet -provide hair dryer so you don't need to bring it as extra weight, thought it's not so powerful for girl's long hair Disadvantages -the room is small, quite hard to open a relatively large luggage inside. -provide power stripes(6 places for charge) but 2 were used as wifi router and sometimes not so stable while charging with the stripe -After bathing, since there are no shower curtain, the whole bathroom will become so wet On one night which we used the kitchen to cook our dinner, we encountered a Bulgaria family and we became friends. This is largest surprise during the journey. If I can have another chance to visit Seoul again, I'll definitely choose this guesthouse again:)

                  Staff's attitude, Environment, Facilities

                  My family and I had truly enjoyed the stay over here. Prior to this trip all the queries raised were responded quickly with substantial information by their staff and this had kept me looking forward to the stay. The check in procedure was smooth and we were given thorough introduction to the facility and surrounding by the staff. Every morning we would be greeted by the staffs who would prepare Korean style breakfast to start our day with a satisfied stomach. The guesthouse had also gave us the opportunity to interact with other travelers. On our departure day Mr Lee also offered us a ride to Hongdae Station as he saw us carrying bulky luggages. Overall, my family and I were able to feel the sincerity of the people there and we would definitely want to go back again in the future.

                  The guesthouse is really beautiful. The rooftop, where breakfast is served, is really pretty and quirky. The staffs were all nice and accommodating. Although the location is not near the subway, it is still very accessible via buses. They clean your room everyday and replaces your toiletries. We had a really nice stay in this guesthouse, wish we had more time in Seoul this time.

                  Our stay was very pleasant. The guesthouse was kind to give us an upgrade in room as it was available. The furnishings were very nice and comfortable. We enjoyed the roof garden and delicious hot breakfast taken there. One afternoon, when we were relaxing on the roof, the guesthouse staff also shared their roasted sweet potatoes with us. The instructions to get their from Hongdae subway station were also clear.

                  the design of guesthouse is fashionable, with nice and helpful staff

                  The whole guesthouse is very new, with fusion of modern and traditional korean style. The common room, room, toilet are all clean, tidy and well equipped. There is dryer, washing machine, shampoo...All guesthouse staff, manager and boss are nice and helpful. They are concerned about your stay at the guesthouse and travel plan. Every morning, there is freshly prepared breakfast which is good looking and very delicious. The menu also changes every day. Although it may be a bit far from the metro, takes about 15 to 20 minutes walk, the boss is helpful and drove us to the metro when we were in a hurry. I will miss this guesthouse and will visit during my next stay in korean😁
