The apartment is very cozy and clean!Ahram is very friendly and helpful!! The location of the apartment is also quite strategic. It is very close to the Gwanghwamun and Gyeongbokgung subway station. There are lots of restaurants in that area as well.

Had a wonderful 6 nights' stay with my friends at BBungalow. The flat is a merging of design and functionality - really spacious and also well-decorated. There's a cafe downstairs with a patio, where my friends and I had cocktails on our last night, courtesy of our awesome host, Ahram. The staff were friendly and very reliable, and Ahram was... More

The location was very convenient as well (two subway lines nearby, few convenient store and cafe around). I was lost during the day of arrival, Ahram was very friendly and helpful, she helped us and ensure... More

Located close to two subway lines (Orange Line 3 & Purple Line 5) and several bus routes, BBungalow was very comfortable and convenient, The neighborhood is a mix of business and residential areas, so it didn't feel like a tourist zone. But still, it is close to the palaces, Insadong, Bukchon, City Hall, and other tourist destinations. Threre are many... More

If you're visiting Seoul, I highly recommend staying at BBungalow! The place is within easy walking distance to the City Hall area as well as several other major attractions. The apartment itself is very clean, comfortable and cozy, with plenty of room to spread out and relax. Also, located right down stairs is a cafe/pub where you can easily grab... More

I have stayed with Bbungalow 3 times now. It feels like my second home. I docked one point because it has been a bit dusty when checking in, but if you call the owner she will do her best to rectify the problem.

this is my 3rd stay in BBungalow and it will still remain the top choice whenever I go to Seoul. Located right in Jungno-gu area, it's closed to all the tourism attractions, eateries, metro stations and cabs aplenty. I love the eateries nearby the place, they serve locals (goodbye, tourist trap!) and deliver yummy food in Korean, western and fusion... More

Checked around many places in Seoul and most of the places were far more expensive as they are categorised as "Hotels". Saw Bbungalow and loved it immediately. Host - Ahram was very helpful and sent us guide on how to go to the apartment. She also turned up at the house and check if everything was okay. ++ She placed... More

Staying in Seodaemun

Neighborhood Profile
Seodaemun
Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and historic buildings that are scattered throughout. Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or touring more historically somber sites such as Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong in particular is a beautiful place for a stroll in spring and autumn.
