Great Location, the flat is clean and comfortable. Ella is very helpful and respond very quickly on wechat.
Ella is really nice and wonderful. She dropped by to pass us extra towels as we are staying for 11 days. Also helping us to call for food to be delivered to the apt. Really appreciate that she helps to make our stay in a foreign country smooth and hassle free. Thank you so much(:
Ella is very kind host, she informed me about exit changes in AREX Seoul St few days before I reached Seoul and also make sure I can check-in smoothly. Her apartment is located near Seoul St - 10 minutes walking, very convenient. There's elevator inside the building, so no problem for traveling with big luggage like us. The apartment is nice and clean, and so is the bathroom. There's kitchen, microwave and refrigerator, all thing that u need for cooking. The Wifi router that provided was very big helpful for us :) One thing that didn't work out so well was TV and electricity. On our 3rd day the TV had no signal, contacted Ella and she gave me instructions to reset it, but still no working. The electricity was unstable too, sometimes some electric devices didn't work. Other than that, I really love staying at Ella's apartment. Hopefully, we can meet one day when I go back to Seoul , kamsahamnida Ella :))
This is my first booking with airbnb and couldn't be happier!
Great thanks to Ella for renting out her space. The location is superb, just 5 minutes walk to Seoul station, Lotte mart and Seoul subway.
Prior check-in, there was a brief information of the apartment sent via email. Very helpful. The room is very neat and clean. Inside the apartment is pretty new and well-maintained. With parquet floor, it's very easy to clean. The bedroom is comfortable, the bathroom is fully equipped with standard amenities. Wi-fi was also provided and we carried the modem all the way in Seoul. The 24-hour mini market next to the apartment was very much helpful in a quite location.
When we went there, we asked Ella's suggestion on how to go there by taxi. She's very helpful and informed us the estimated cost. Too bad that I couldn't meet Ella because of limited time.
It was very easy for us to carry our luggage when checking out and went to the airport by AREX.
Great place and location!
My partner and I had a pleasant time staying at Ella's studio! As a first Airbnb experience, it was fantastic.
Ella gave us clear instructions as to where we could store our luggage before checkin time and directions to get to her place easily.
Ella's studio is only a 20min walk from myeongdong and namdaemun, which made it very convenient. Of course you can take the subway but we enjoyed the walk.
Ella was also a very helpful host, quick to help us resolve the wifi issue we encountered. The restaurants she recommends are a must-try!
Thanks for everything Ella!
My mother and I loved our stay in ella's apartment. The place is well maintained and very close to seoul station. The wifi egg was a big help. Ella as a host is very considerate and helpful. She even allowed us to check in early. We regret not having the chance to meet her though ( maybe next time :)). All in all we had a great time in seoul partly because of our stay in ella's apartment. Thanks again ella and all the best!
Very good location right besides the Seoul station and Ella's apartment is equipped with almost everything you need. And her additional offer of the portable wifi helped me a lot. I had a wonderful experience of airbnb at her cozy room.

About the Host, Ella
Hello, friends and neighbors all around the world!
I have traveled a lot of countries and worked at a hospital helping expats for years. I have loved to get acquainted with foreign friends since I was young, so studied English by myself and these-days I am learning Chinese.
I usually traveled alone and made friends there. And here I always keen to be your friend, chat about the sort of experiences you would like to have while staying in Seoul and help to plan itineraries.
Being an Airbnb host is a great joy to get along with many good people all over the world, esp. who are interested in my own country. If you need any help or information during your stay in Seoul, I would be more than happy to help you.
I have prepared my room with the best of my care as I would stay here in a foreign country.
Visit my studio and enjoy staying in the cozy home-like apartment near peaceful neighborhood but center located and hanging around with me!
