Stayed at Rio House from Dec 10-15 (triple room). We were greeted by Insung, his lovely Japanese wife and Minnie. Room on the 15th floor was private in a way. No noisy tenants with young kids making noise. Room was pretty big and we had a single & a queen size bed. Having the kitchenette was great. We cooked several... More

Though my trip to Seoul was in Jun, Rio House deserves me to write a good review. Rio House is located almost next to the metro station, so traveling to/from the airport and around Seoul is very convenient as Seoul train network is good and covering a lot of area. As it was in Hongdae a shopping area, you can... More

It's a nice place to stay in Seoul. Excellent service and convenient location which is just 1 to mins from Subway. The owner and staffs are very kind and they provided any information efficiently when we needed.

This is really late. My friend and I stayed at Rio House Hongdae in April this year but I was too busy to write a review. Anyway, we really enjoyed our stay here. The guesthouse is really convenient: you can just take the airport express train (AREX) directly from Incheon airport to Hongik University Subway Station which takes about 45mins,... More

I traveled with family and stayed at Rio Guesthouse for 10 days during end of September. I highly recommended this guesthouse, it has spacious rooms and majority of facilities were provided (shampoo, body wash, laundry, wifi). The only thing it didn't provide was towels but you can purchase that in the nearby supermarket. The location is absolutely awesome here. Just... More

Easy access to subway (subway is located in front of the building), clean room (Only closet that has some dust. Maid may forget to clean it and we clean it by ourselves). It's closed to many bars & restaurants (but not noise because we stayed on the 11th floor). There are some convenient stores, a small supermarket and nice coffee... More

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
