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

Yim´s House is really in the centre of Seoul which is very convenient. The staff was so gentle and nice. They helped us in any way they could with a very kind manner. Everything including bathroom was very clean and tidy. The room was small but beds and bathroom were in very good condition. Very pleasant place to feel comfortable... More

My friend and I loved the place. It was walking distance to everywhere we want to go and so we saved a lot on subway fare. The people running the place are extremely friendly! They anticipate most of our needs. Left us notes and reminders all throughout our stay. The rooms are clean although small (which we don't mind). The... More

I stayed here for 11 nights and I find the reviews and comments written by the recent travellers are correct and informative. This guesthouse is wonderful and I will recommend my friends to stay here when they visit Seoul city.
