The area was great, its close to a free children's park and zoo, many shops, food outlets and restaurants. The convenience store below was great for drinks and food and we found the people who...

A very quiet and safe place with everything necessary for a good rest. There is a private kitchennet in some rooms with the gas stove, a large fridge and a lot of cupboards. The utensiles for cooking can be taken on the first floor in the public kitchen where a plain breakfast served in the morning. There are small terraces... More

The rooms are of average cleanliness but cleaned most days (not all) Free internet on computers and wifi, staff quite helpful, kitchen area clean and free breakfast is good. Free international calls is also a bonus. There are... More

Overall the place was very clean. First of all, the fact that it is next to the subway station made it extremely convenient for me to travel around. Also, there is a kitchen in the first floor so that you can cook if you want to. Furthermore, the staff are very kind and nice. I really enjoyed my stay at... More

We booked a single and double and on arrival, were given a triple which could not be changed due to them being full. A bit uncomfortable when you have only just met your daughters' boyfriend! - but I am guessing worse for him! The room was very clean and had a full kitchen but no cups, plates or glasses, though...

we stayed at the Philhouse hotel in Seoul Korea for 2 weeks. It was a great location with a fabulous park and zoo located behind it. There was plenty of restaurants and shopping, subway, bus stop, and taxi stands close by as well. The room and a kitchenette and was very clean and comfortable.

The best thing is the location of this guest house is super near with the subway. Anyone who would want to avoid walking at hilly road would love to stay at this place. The facilities are superb with clean environment especially the kitchen. All basic kitchen necessities are ready. As overall, it is a good stay. :)

Very nice place to stay. Close to everything. Staff are also very nice. They have been helpful many times when we needed help with getting directions. The place is very clean. The cleaner cleans corridors every day. I would come here next time again with my family.

This is our second stay at Phil House. Met by Roshan who could not have made us more welcome. Lovely room, balcony, comfortable bed and lots of wardrobe space. We will be staying for three weeks whilst visiting our son, as we did last time. Felt like coming home, met Leo this Morning who again remembered and welcomed us. Excellent... More
