Good location at Myeong-dong. Futon tatami style of sleeping. Rooms are clean. The slope to the guesthouse is steep at certain location. Try the famous Namsan Pork Cutlet, very near about 3 mins walk.

Due to tyhoon Usagi, my connecting flight was cancelled so I had to arrive a day late. They assured me my room will be available and did not charge me for that night I missed. The rooms were... More

Great location About 5 mins walk to the cable car station leading up to N Seoul Tower. Within 15 mins walk to the Myeong Dong metro station, Myeong Dong and Namdaemun.... More

Although the day we arrived in Seoul it wasn't easy to find and we had to search for a while for the guesthouse, but when we arrived we liked it immedialely. It's... More

Very good location, next to the metro station, and Myongdong and Namdaemun markets and tourist bus stop. A little uncomfortable if you plan to go from the metro station to the guesthouse (5 blocks + or-) walking with heavy bags because of the hill. The room were quite spacious although the futons were a bit short for our height. The... More
