  • When I visit Seoul next, I am definitely going back to Skye's apartment. 진짜 편리한 아파트입니다.

    You get exactly what is stated - a comfortable, cosy place, minutes from two subway stations yet quiet and safe, with every consideration taken care of. There was a local mobile phone provided (very helpful!), wifi in the room, cable tv, good heating, tiny kitchen, washing machine, detergent - in short, everything needed for a very easy, comfortable stay. We didn't really use the loft sleeping area, which has a low ceiling, so I can't comment on that, but for two people it was perfect.

    Skye is an extremely helpful host, the instructions are spot on, and he's easy to reach on the phone for random questions. He provides maps and information in the apartment, so if it's your first time in Seoul, it'll be a relatively soft landing.

    To keep things simple - would I go back?

    YES.

  • This place is very sophisticated. We were a group of 6 people and we were very pleased with what Skye & Imshill had provided. The place was clean and neatly organized with some useful housing utensils and information for our stay in Seoul. Moreover, this place is very strategic to subway stations and the cultural sightseeing arena. Therefore, I strongly recommend this place for a group holiday in Seoul. Thanks again Skye & Imshill.

  • We had an awesome time at Skye's apartment. It's at a fantastic location, walking distance to gyeongbukgong, a short train or taxi ride away from namdaemun, myeongdong, insadong etc. The unit itself was large enough to accommodate 4 adults and 2 young kids (2 & 4). The only thing if u have young kids like us is that u need to beware of the steep stairs up to the loft. And the loft is really low, so watch ur head! Skye was very kind to loan us a local hand phone, and the free wifi egg that was very very useful. He patiently and promptly answered all our questions from where to buy diapers to how to get to the airport. We had a small issue with the toilet but that was resolved quickly and Skye's wife even came down to check it out. Overall we had a great time in Skye's place, and would stay here again if we are back in Seoul.

    Response from Skye:

    Thank you Rebecca. It was my pleasure to host you and also my wife really enjoyed to talk with you. I hope to see you in future again.

  • We have a wonderful time in Seoul and Skye apartment is very near to most of visiting spot. Unfortunately most of us fall sick during the trip. Skye even recommended a doctor which is indeed very helpful. The place is very convenient, clean and easy access. We have elderly and 2 childrens and we have wonderful time stayed at Skye's place.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Skye's place. It was an excellent location for us as we completed the Seoul Marathon and we were a 5 minute walk from the start line. Skye was very accommodating and sent a lot of information to us about Seoul and how to get around.
    Definitely would recommend staying here.

  • My friends and I enjoyed our stay in Skye's place. The place is clean and spacious which can accommodate 6 to 7 persons. We feel at home in staying at Skye'apt. coz everything we needed are there. The refrigerator is big and we were able to cook also. There's washing machine also so you dont need to bring lots of clothes and you can iron your clothes also. Skye also probided us portable wifi and cell phone and its very helpful to us. I will definitely stay in skye's place again if i'll go back to korea for another vacation. I will refer his place also to my friends planning to go to korea.

  • If you want to save time and money traveling and you want to see the more traditional (yet modern) side of Korea, this is a great place to start. You can go to Gwanghwamun plaza, Bukchon village, Samchungdong, and Insadong all on foot. It's extremely close to the subway station and the building is hard to miss.
    The only thing me and my friends had a problem with was the smell that came from the bathroom and kitchen sink. I understand that this isn't a unique problem to this place and many officetels suffer from this issue, but there should be much more effort to minimize the stench. Another minor thing was the paintings on the floor. All my friends agreed that they kind of created a weird vibe in all the sleeping areas. But overall the level of convenience was superb. Multiple bathroom amenities, plenty of extra towels, and even free portable wifi and a working phone?! Not many places offer that.
