We were a little lost on our first night in Korea, and the owner, Mr. Jang, helped translate and speak to taxi drivers on our behalf on where the hotel was situated (we missed our stop on the 6003 bus). Even though it was 11PM at night, the owner welcomed us warmly and taught us how to use the kitchenette,... More

Probably would have given 4.5 out of 5, taking a half star as the room is a little worn. The location was fine. I little out of the centre but on the main metro line. The metro is very cheap and we used it everyday... what's a couple more stops. Liked having a grocery store nearby and the restaurant on... More

We had to come into town at 1am because of a flight delay, but someone was still there to greet us at this hotel with a hot boricha tea and keys to the room. He did not speak much English but was very nice and showed us everything we needed to know through example. The rooms have heated floors, a... More

My family and I (hubby and 2 kids) stayed in one of their Double Queen bedded rooms as there were 4 of us. The room was clean and quite spacious. We were also very pleased that all the electrical appliances were clean and in good working condition, unlike some other apartments/hotels that we had stayed in previously. When checked-in on...

My family and I travelled to Seoul in December 2014. Since Seoul's hotels were quite pricey for what they were, we opted for an "appart-hotel", which is popular for tourists in Korea. We choose Daelim Residence for its fantastic reviews. LOCATION The location is unfortunately not in the city-downtown, BUT a 5 minute walk down a small hill brings you... More

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this cosy and warm residence hotel. Mr. Jang (owner) came to greet and took picture for us even though we just stayed for a night. His staffs were very helpful with our needs and was able to converse in mandarin language which was a plus for us. The weather was below... More

The room is spacious and comfortable. A small kitchen is great for us to prepare breakfast and to do our own cooking. Two supermarkets nearby and it is very convenient to buy food and other necessities. It takes 10 minutes walk to the MTR and you can go to city centre for around half hour. The airport bus station is... More

This condotel is extraordinary. The owner/the president met us personally when we checked in, and walked us to our room, showed us where everything is and how everything works. The room is very clean, very modern, and it has a kitchenette which was great. There is a supermarket nearby which was handy. To go to the city centre, we can... More

I booked 2 rooms in view of the good comments on forums. With detailed direction map sent by the owner after placing the reservation, we got to Daelim without difficulties except dragging our bulky suitcases up to the 50m slope. We were greeted by the owner and the Chinese staff. They treated us nicely with cool canned corn tea, which... More
