My sister and I stayed for 4 days. Keeping this simple and short. -Room is okay, I wasn't expecting a big room or bathroom since its a b&b and it isnt much of a problem since we only stay there to sleep. And the bathroom didn't reek of anything and it was clean. Good wifi and AC. -Staff is nice... More

If you are looking for cheap accommodation and a place at a central location for shopping, this is it. We booked a room for 4 nights at Namsan Guest House 3. The staff has passable basic English and they do speak Chinese so there's no problems in communication. Don't expect a huge room though, rooms are purely functional for sleeping.... More

Was initially looking forward to my first stay at Namsan, after hearing some good reviews on this property sometime back... but was disappointed. The recent reviews have also been less positive and I share their sentiment after my last stay. Stayed at Namsan 2 for 6 nights recently with my family during our Seoul trip. The positives are that the... More

If you're looking for a budget friendly accomodation, then Namsan guesthouse 3 is the perfect place for you. Room rates are really cheap considering that it already includes breakfast (unlimited noodles and bread). Although may I suggest that you only get this accommodation if you plan to tour Korea the whole day. There are no amenities in this hotel, just... More

I stayed in a private room in May 2014 and paid about $65 USD a night. This ended up being the worst value for what I got during my three weeks South Korea and Japan. The room was none too big and worn, but clean. The comforter covering the bed on the floor: less clean. My room did have my... More

My boyfriend and I checked into Namsan guesthouse 4 on the 1st of June 2014. As the Guesthouse is located uphill, it is quite laborious to drag heavy luggages uphill. The place is not too difficult to locate, just right behind pacific hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted by an English-speaking non-korean lady and paid 70,000 won per night and... More

This guesthouse provides good amenities for the VIP room (for 4 persons). Apart from the standard offerings, our room came with a kitchen sink, fridge, washing machine and stove which was useful for us. Moreover, the area that we stayed at was quiet and peaceful at night so we were able to sleep well. I also like the location of... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. It was very clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. You sleep on a mattress on the floor (for cultural reasons) and because of this I enjoyed myself even more. If you want to experience a little more Korean culture stay at this hostel - if sleeping on the floor isn't your thing,... More

Realised i did not reviewed this. Stayed at Namsam2 (Room VIP1) for 7 nights in September 2012. We had 6 ladies and shared a big room. It was very clean, and we loved that our room on the 3rd floor. Beds were mattresses laid out on the floor, Ondol style. The room is equipped with private bathroom, air-conditioner, cable TV,... More

Room is small but sufficent and clean.... More
