About This Listing
Welcome to Daehan Artvillage.
Our building is comprised of five houses and are whole big family.
We took a taxi to Haedong's house. Unfortunately the driver did not know how to get there (either that or there is communication breakdown). We called Haedong and he helped us direct the the taxi driver to his house. He is very responsive when we called and we felt bad for disturbing him at 1 am in the night. Uncle came to greet us and helped us with our luggage. He even made us instant noodles! Korean noodles are delicious. Uncle is a very friendly guy but it's pity we don't know simple korean because it will be nice to be able to chat with him. There are lots of towels available for use. Location wise, Achasan is far from the city area (30 mins away). But his house is near the Achasan Station. There are some eateries near his house so you wont go hungry. Stay is comfortable. Note that there is only one toilet.I try to take quick showers if Uncle or his son is around in case they need to use the toilet.
I realy enyoyed my stay in Haedong's place. The host was very friendly, the room and the whole apartment were good standard and fully equipment and most importantly5 minutes from metro station. I would recommend the room for everybody, especially for this price.
It was a really good experience to stay in HaeDong's house cause the area around Achasan is quiet and chilly. Its really comfortable and cozy for me. Thanks to Haedong's uncle who take care of me during the two night stay in his house. He is really caring and I feel home when I was staying there. If anyone of you who is reading the review and you wish to find a place that is quiet and cozy, this is one of the good choices. The room looks exactly the same as in the picture and I really love it ! Unfortunately i didnt get a chance to meet up Haedong because he was busying with his company, hope we get chance to meet again when I come back to Korea again! Take care !
The place, the room, the everything is honestly very wonderful. Our ten days there was very comfortable as Haedong's uncle (who we stayed with) welcomed us warmly and it was like we lived there for years.
The room, was like how it was describe in the advertisement. It was roomy and very comfortable. The internet connection was indeed fast and the TV had lots of channels so you won't get bored. The refrigerator was enough to store food for a month (if you're gonna stay that long). The neighbourhood was quiet, even if there was an elementary across the street. Even if you can here the children shouting, it wouldn't be loud enough to ruin someone's day.
On the night of our arrival, Haedong's uncle was already waiting for us at the (Achasan) station and walked us to the house so we wouldn't be lost. (Though I'm still very sorry that we took too long and we weren't able to tell them ahead of time that our flight got delayed, his uncle waited for almost 2 hours ): ) And when we arrived at the house, his uncle fed us ramyeon and kimchi (which was very fresh and very much different from the Kimchi that I've tasted here in the Philippines).
Uncle was very nice and always made sure to remind us of the weather during the day, lend us umbrellas and he was just very warm and welcoming.
Haedong, from the inquiries, reservation, arrival and stay, was very accommodating. He answered all our questions, and very quick at that, even if it was just to ask if the internet was fast or whatever. Although we met Haedong on our last day, just before we left to the airport. He asked us how our trip was and what were the places we went to...even had a tiny KPOP conversation :D He was nice and very much like how you talk to him on Airbnb (messages).
It's a very nice place to stay at and I definitely recommend this place to everyone who are going to Seoul.
This was such a lovely place to stay. It's Haedong's uncle's apartment, and he's a great host. Very jolly and accommodating. He doesn't speak a ton of English, but Haedong does and is easily reachable all the time. The neighbourhood is really pleasant, and easily reached from anywhere in Seoul on the subway. Very much recommended.
