In the room, you can watch CNN, BBC, and more, internet access is always available from both ethernet and WIFI.
Because it is apartment, not a detached house, not supposed to run and bang on the floor and most of area especially after 10 pm.
Me, my husband and my 3 kids really enjoyed our 69 days stay in Harry's place.
Harry was a great host who took great care of our needs and welfare throughout our stay.
He made sure that we got to his apartment safely by arranging help to receive us from the airport bus in the middle of the night.
He also called us to make sure we know where to find things he kept in the house and how to operate the electronic stuffs etc.
During the MERS outbreak, he constantly msg and call us, showing great concern about us and making sure we are fine.
And because of MERS, we had to shorten our stay in Korea.
Harry was very understanding and allowed us to update our changes in schedule and he promptly accepted the change as well.
What more would I say to be so grateful to have stayed in his apartment?
Harry played a reliable and trustable host, making our entire stay in Korea, a very memorable and enjoyable one.
Thank you Harry!
Harry was a good host. He made sure we got to the apartment & called before coming to korea. The apartment was described as on the website. The only thing is that the apartment could of had proper pillows. The pillows were very small. Besides from that everything else was good. Loved my stay there.
The best value for money stay in Seoul!
We are a family of 4 and stayed in Dec 2014 in the Harry's apart. It has all comfort you need, located on top floor of the building which makes it bright and quiet, the subway is just next, airport bus stops right front of the building...everything is so convenient. It is a residential area at the South end of Seoul. However by subway, you are within 30 min. in middle of Gangnam center. Harry will make sure that you enjoy your stay and despite living in Canada, Harry has been always available and answering very quickly to questions we had. Thank you very much Harry, we really hope to stay again in your apartment. Kind regards from Netherlands
주인인 해리씨는 마치 일급호텔 수준의 친절함을 베풀었고, 집의 위치나 가구, 설비 등은 광고내용보다 좋았다고 생각됩니다.
만약 친구등이 한국을 여행하는 경우, 이 집을 가장 우선적으로 추천할 정도로 집의 위치, 시설, 안전도, 편의성 등이 최상이었습니다.
Harry는 여행자의 마음을 이해하고 모든 면에서 도울 준비가 되어있는 perfect host였습니다. 처음 예약부터 어려움이 있었는데 거주지에 따른 시차에도 불구하고 신속하게 연락을 취하며, 그가 할 수 있는 가능한한 모든 도움을 아끼지 않았습니다. 그의 집은 전철역과 매우 가까워 무척 편리했습니다. 서울뿐만 아니라 전국 어디를 가든지 교통시설과 수분 내에 연결될 수 있는 것은 큰 장점이었습니다. 서울뿐만 아니라 지방에도 가야했던 저희는 서울역에서 ktx를 타러가는데도 교통체증과 상관없이 정확하게 전철로 여행할 수 있어서 편리했습니다. 외출 후에 숙소로 돌아올 때도 버스에 시달리지 않고, 쾌적하고 정확한 시간에 도착하는 전철로 돌아올 수 있어서 편리했습니다. 인천공항까지 가는 버스가 500미터 내에 있어서 많은 짐을 가지고 있었는데도 아주 편하게 공항에 도착했습니다. 공항버스의 기사분은 아주 친절하셔서 아무리 많은 짐이라도 친절하고, 안전하게 실어주셨습니다. 또한 종점이라 혼동될 일도 없고, 짐칸이 모자를까봐 염려되는 일도 없었습니다. 주변의 경관도 아주 좋았습니다. 숙소 안에서도 큰 산을 볼 수 있었고, 주변에도 녹지대가 다른 지역보다 많아 쾌적했습니다. 은행, 슈퍼마켓, 약국, 병원도 아주 가까이 있어 편리했습니다. 그의 집은 아주 따뜻했습니다. 각 방마다 난방을 할 수 있어서 각자의 취향대로 난방을 할 수 있는것도 좋았습니다. 각 방에 있는 침대들도 품질이 좋아서 쾌적한 수면을 취할 수 있었습니다. 집이 아주 넓고 깨끗해서 외출 후에 돌아와서도 쉽게 relex 할 수 있었습니다. 매뉴얼이 정확하고 자세해서 사용하는데 편리했습니다. 제공되어진 겨울용 이불은 깨끗하고 따뜻했습니다. 화장실이 두개여서 편리했습니다. 한국내에서 사용할 수 있는 무료 전화가 있어 편리했습니다. 무엇보다도 긴급상황시 Harry씨와 직접 연결될 수 있는 전화가 있어 손님의 마음이 편안했습니다. 그의 집은 넓고 깨끗하며, 필요한 도구들이 잘 완비되어 있고, 교통시설이 편리하고, 주변의 경관이 서울의 다른 지역보다 녹지대가 많아 쾌적하며, host는 어떤 일이던지 도와줄 준비가 되어있는 거의(99.9%) 완벽에 가까운 집이었습니다. 저의 동생과 어머님이 건너편 아파트에 사셔서 10년 만에 만나는 저희 자매와, 어머님과 추억의 여러 시간들을 만들 수 있었습니다. 비록 한번도 Harry씨를 직접 대면하고 대화를 해 보지는 않았지만, 구석구석, 빈틈없이 챙겨주시는 손길을 느끼게 하셨습니다.
My friend and i stayed here for 3 weeks from mid October to beginning of November. We had a wonderful time staying at Harry's place. He always kept in contact with us to make sure everything was going well and if we had any questions he was quick to reply. Location is a family orientated place if youre looking for more of a night scene just take the subway which is a few steps beside the apartment. The place was very spacious and clean and the neighbours friendly. Theres a local market right across the street and everything is pretty cheap. I recommend anyone to stay here especially a family. We will definately keep in mind to come back here when we visit korea again.
Thank you Harry for everything!!
The apartment was fantastic, even better than the pictures make it out to be. Harry was very accommodating and helpful, if we needed extra things (like keys) he sought out extra for us. Irwon is a very lovely (and quiet) location with good connections (train station is literally outside of the apartment) however if you want somewhere close to the central areas of Seoul consider the fact that the journey time to places like Myeongdong, Hongdae and Itaewon will be long.
All in all a great place with a wonderful host!
