The owner was really friendly and nice. The location of the guesthouse is perfect, it is close to Namsan hill and the shopping area Myeongdong. To get to the guesthouse, you need to go on a tiring uphill walk. There is also a halal restaurant nearby, which is convenient for Muslim travellers. There is also a kitchen at the guesthouse,...

4 reasons why I love my stay here and will definitely be back when I visit Seoul again: 1) Location – It’s near Myeongdong Station so it is easier for you to go around Seoul. The stop for airport bus is also near so you can opt to take the bus to/from Incheon Airport. It is also near Myeongdong area...

Stayed here for 4 nights and the room was clean, comfortable and fit for purpose. The only downside of the room was the bathroom which was a but small. Breakfast was alright if you were up early but if you were up later it got a bit crowded. Location was good and quiet. Good place to stay for a few...

It is a great place to stay in Myeongdong area but more for people with minimal luggages as you have to carry your own luggages down from your room (1st, 2nd & 3rd floors) to ground floor when you check out. Also there is a bit of walk uphill needed to this guesthouse from Myeongdong station. Kitchen area is crowded...

Conveniently located to explore Namsan-Dong area including N-Tower and the Namdeamun Market area. Closest Metro-Station is Meyong-dong which is very convenient to get around. The room I was in had very thin doors/walls, not soundproof at all. You literally hear everything in the other rooms and hallway which I find a quite uncomfortable. Room itself had a "very firm" mattress,...

Stayed here for one night with 3 of my students before I had to fly back home. Location was perfect- got to love the short walk to the metro station despite it being a little steep up the hill but good exercise nonetheless. Room was small but decent and the owner is very friendly and helpful. Gave good advice on...

This was my second trip to Seoul and my re-chose the this place as previous experiance convinced me that this place offers the comfort I needed. True indeed. Kidae (the owner) did not disappoint me. The place is still cozy and clean. The bed is sufficient and the bathroom (though small) is prim and proper. all needed for a good...

We stayed here for 6 nights and had a brilliant time. It is in a great location in Myongdong which has everything you need especially shopping. It is up a slight hill but at the bottom is a subway station. The owner is very nice and helpful and you can use all the amenities there. It is self service and...

We stayed here for a week and we didn't have any issues. The room is clean and tidy plus the wifi is very strong. It is very accessible to the subway, shopping market and restaurants. We'll definitely book here again this year.

The owner, Mr Kidae was very friendly and helpful. Nice free breakfast we had, loved the biscoff spread! Some quite steep walking distance (about 3 minutes walk from Myeong-Dong station) but the weather was so nice I didn't mind at all.
