My family had visited the Rio House Hongdae in late August. This was our first trip to travel in Seoul by ourselves. It was a great time to stay in the Rio House. The location was good and easy to find which only takes 3 minutes walking from the Subway Station. The shopping area and restaurants were just nearby. We... More

I stayed in Rio House with my family in late July/early August for 4 nights. We have visited Seoul many times but it was our first time not to stay in Myeongdong area. We really made a good decision. We love staying in Hongdae than Myeongdong for less crowded but more nice restaurants and shops nearby. Rio House is situated... More

It is in a great location... stone's throw away from the subway and walking distance from the night life/restaurants/cafes that are in the awesome Hongdae area... The room is spacious... with...

My family chose Rio House after reading all the favourable reviews. Its positives are unbeatable location, spacious room, helpful travel tips and booking assistance. Insung and Rachel are very nice and helpful and offer prompt service even when being asked in late night. All these I termed good hardware. It would be even more appealing if the software can be...

We stayed at Riohouse Hongdae for 7 nights in deluxe room at 10/F in Aug. The location is so convenient which only takes 2 mins walk from Hongdae station exit 2. Insung is super nice, friendly and helpful. He fulfilled all our special requests such as he helped us to order fried chicken after 11pm, let us use his laptop,... More

This was our first experience staying at a guesthouse. Our 11 day stay at Rio House Hongdae was very delightful. Starting with the easy reservation process via email with Insung, he answered many of our questions. Arriving at ICN, we took the ALL Stops train directly to Hongik University Station, Exit 2. Upon exiting, we walked straight out and cross... More

Its location offers easy access to subway stations, shops, dining as well. Guests will appreciate the convenience of this enviable location. The hosts Insung & Rachel are very friendly & accommodating (beyond our expectation), no request is out of the question and commendable speed of response. Though, we keep missing Insung in person during our stay haha….nonetheless, he was readily... More

We were a group of 6 and chose to stay at Rio house because of its attractive location! It was conveniently located near the subway as well as the exciting Hongdae area. Insung and Kaoru were very nice, it was the very first time that we were being invited for a chat during check in :) The apartment was fully... More
