It was my first time travelling Solo and it turnout their place was just walking distance to some of the nice places in Seoul like Jongmyo shrine, Bukchon Hanok Villages, insadong, Unhyeongung Palace, Gyeongbokgung Palace, and many more.... It was the idea that the guesthouse is just walking... More

A colleague referred this hotel to me prior to our travel. She was raving about its very reasonable price and the hotel's excellent customer service. True enough, I experienced the same excellent customer service during our stay without spending too much money. The double room was clean and it has all the basic amenities-no frills that any traveler could ever... More

Yim's House became our new home upon arriving South Korea. It was our first time to visit this country and it we are not used to the very cold weather. Yim’s House made us feel better with their controlled temperature and very friendly staff named Mr. Li, John and Mr. Yim himself. They taught us how to get to places... More

Stayed at Yim's House for 5 days. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is convenient for access to Seoul's major attractions and access to/from the airport. Would recommend if you are traveling to Seoul on a budget.

It's really close with Changdeokgung only 2 minutes walk, 5 minutes walk to the subway station~ The owner is soooo kind and they always told me how to get into the location/nearest... More

Yim's House made our Seoul visit a very comfortable one. It is 2-5 minutes walk from the bus stop to and fro the airport. Walking depends on how fast you walk!. :) Near Anguk and Jong no 3 ga station. Yim's son, taught us a short cut to Insadong which was very helpful. And gave us an idea of how... More

Who would have thought you would get all this for $40? A palace at the end of the street, a subway five minutes walk away and a great shopping street for cool souvenirs a bit further on. There is even a second-hand shop, the Beautiful Store, where I got a silicon belt for $1.50. But back to Yim's. The owner... More

We stayed at Yim's house from Sept 23-28 and we're lucky to have chosen this hotel. We made our booking thru email exchange with Manager Yim, he replied promptly and answered all our queries, During our arrival, Mr. Lee fetched us at 7/11 because we got lost. We also met Mr. John (Manager Yim's brother) who prepared our cup noodles... More
