From the moment I booked Jeremy's apartment, I knew it was going to be a great stay. He was always fast to communicate and provided that best instruction on how to find his place. Jeremy eagerly showed me all the details of the apartment where he had laminated cards translating all the electronic items like the washer/dryer, toilet, and heater. He even had some complimentary water, juice, and food in the fridge for me. Jeremy even gave me a T-money card with a couple thousand won on it to get me started in the subway system.
As for my stay, the apartment was perfect! Everything worked perfectly and I had no problems with anything. It was beyond clean and you could tell he was proud of that fact. The location couldn't be better. If you are coming to vista Seoul and want to see the palaces and historical side of the city. You are literally within walking distance of it all. Situated in the heart of Insadong, it's in a great place to stroll, eat, shop, and discover.
Safety was never an issue for me. I felt completely safe both inside the apartment and outside in the city. Seoul is a remarkably safe city for it's size. I must say, you will not regret renting this, or any of Jeremy's properties in this building. I fully recommend Jeremy as a top Airbnb host.
Jeremy's apartment is in a fantastic location, situated near Insadong, Bukchon and Changdoekgung Palace. With the subway station accessible by the basement of the apartment building and with the airport bus stop right outside, it was just so convenient to arrive/leave and explore the city as well. The apartment is cosy and well taken care of. Jeremy is thoughtful in leaving English translations of Korean instructions (such as for the washing machine and bidet-toilet) and has provided all that's needed for a great stay! We're very happy and wished we could have stayed longer...we really felt at home.
My sister and I stayed in Jeremy's studio in Mar, 2014 and we highly recommend this place for people. The studio was clean and well organized. It was a bit small but very well organized. Jeremy provided us with an extra mattress, that came in really handy. It was close to many shops, cafe, and restaurants and you can really experience traditional and modern Korean culture by walking around the neighborhood. In addition, it was super convenient for us to get an access to public transportation and we had no trouble in getting around the city by taking bus and subway.
Staying at the Charm studio was the best decision I made for my trip to Korea! I stayed there for four nights with my aunt, and we loved how cozy, modern and neat the room was (exactly as shown in the pictures), as well as the incredibly convenient location - close to the major sightseeing spots/Insadong shopping area & right above the subway station.
Jeremy was an amazing host - he responds extremely quickly, and one morning around 6:30AM when I was having a bit of trouble, he still answered my call and was willing to come over right away. (Thankfully I resolved it before he had to come out - sorry again about that!!) He also accommodated my request to check in early and kept my luggage for me, and lent my aunt a T-money card to use for the subway. The stocked fridge was a pleasant surprise, and overall we felt so at home and welcome in the studio even though we were in a foreign country! Everything from communication to every little corner in the room - kitchenware, wifi, extra power outlets, power adapter, laptop, detailed English signs, tourist maps, bus timetables, etc. - just spoke volumes about his attentiveness and care.
I hope I will have the chance to stay there again in the future. I truly can't recommend Jeremy's studios more! :)
Me and my husband stayed at Charm#1 for 8 days and Jeremy was really helpful throughout the process. He waited in front of the apartment to welcome us and explained everything how to use facilities in the room. Just want to say thank you to Jeremy for organising delivery on my left-behind item back to Australia. He responded really quick when I sent an email telling him that I left my mobile phone back at the apartment and needed him to post it back to me. Highly recommended for everyone who wants to stay in the heart of Seoul. I will definitely come back one day and stay at your place Jeremy =)))
This is definitely the best choice for a 1st time visitor to Seoul. The location is perfect, close to palaces, temples and shopping/restaurants areas, and with very easy access to the airport limousine bus and the subway.
The apartment is in perfect condition and has everything you will need during your stay.
Jeremy is a great host, he was waiting for us even if it was quite late, and explained everything very carefully.
I would totally recommend this place.
Excellent studio in Insa-dong. I was quite pleased. Easy to find, easy to access. Jeremy is immediate at responding to messages. Thanks for a great stay.
My partner and I stayed at Jeremy's apartment for 6 nights and had a wonderful time, one of the best Airbnb experiences of our world trip. Jeremy is a great host - super friendly, helpful and responsive which made communication and checking in and out process a breeze. The apartment itself is perfect, in an unbeatable location close walking distance to the palaces, shopping, restaurants and extremely well connected for public transport from the airport, other districts, Bukhansan National Park and more. The apartment is very well equipped, bright, spacious, clean and cosy - we were there in winter and were very warm and comfortable at night. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough for a stay in Seoul!
항상 호텔을 이용하다 처음 이용해 보았는데요
호텔보다 저렴한 비용으로 훨씬 편안하게 지내다 왔습니다
시설도 깨끗했으며 주인장님의 세심한 배려에 여러번 감동했습니다
위치도 아주 좋아서 산책하기도 좋은곳과 맛있는 음식점도 많이 있었습니다
다음에 기회가 된다면 꼭 다시 이용하고 싶습니다
Stayed at Vharmed apartment 28 Dec 2013 - 3 Jan 2014. The experience is good. It should be the best guesthouse i have ever stayed in. Airport bus is just infront of the apartment, Jeremy also volunter to help us (my freind and I are both ladies) with our luggages to the airport busstop which is across the road when we are leaving~
Jeremy provided alot of useful information in his apartment, example airport bus timing and korea map, not forgetting those guides on the washing machine, switches, television and bidet!
He also provide us with bread, oranges, apples, jams and water when we check in(did i mention all free?!).
I noticed he listen and will improve on previous guest's feedback, this makes what he is now :)
On top of above, his attitude, replies and services is the most positive. He always tried his best to help and not let you disappointed.
My friend and I had a great stay during this trip. For me, I will still stay in Charm apartment for my next trip!
Thanks Jeremy for all the helps. Hope I'm not too troublesome :P
