Stay at this guesthouse for 2 night and a few nights at different accommodation. To be honest its nice and clean. Some suggestion from what i can observe during my stay in Seoul from its competitors are daily room cleaning, better towels that absorb water n moisture. To sum up all rates is quite on a high side for the... More

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.

Hosts were excellent and plenty of good advise and help. It is a basic budget travelers location with everything one would need... More

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...

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

It's a very central guesthouse, not far from the metro station Myeongdond, the Namdaemun market, the haert of shopping in Seoul and the cable car to Namsan Park. 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
