This is the second time I stayed at Kang's apartment. Am glad to recommend Kang's service to anyone interested to visit Seoul. His apartments are very centralized and convenient if you wish to visit the tourist attractions in Seoul. But more than the price and location, Kang provides excellent services. Without his help, I would definitely get lost in Seoul. He responds fast; almost instant, which helps me with finding the right bus stop, alighting and exiting the right metro and etc. Will definitely recommend Kang's apartment to anyone. Thumbs up!
I had a wonderful stay in Kang's apartment. The apartment was small but with plenty of room for two people. It was clean and had everything we needed for a short stay. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant, with nearby restaurants and supermarkets. Just north of the apartment building is Ansan mountain park, which makes for pleasant hiking and nice views of Seoul. Kang also was responsive before and during my stay. I highly recommend this apartment.
A great host! Kang could be reached at any time and always tried his best to accomodate us. His place is well equiped. It has got everthing you need. Public transit is near by. The location is very central in a quiet neigborhood. We had no problem while staying at his place!!
I had a good time staying at Kang's apartment it really is value for money. It had everything that you need and the place was clean. The apartment location was also good as it is accessible(near train station) and near local attractions. The local shops and cafes made us feel like we were living the local life in Seoul as it had a homey environment. I would definitely come back here again when I am in Seoul
Kang's appartment is well located, close to shops and restaurants. The room was clean and well equipped, Kang was very kind to pick me up and show me in.
What more can you ask? Dae Joon's house is right at the heart of Seoul, from every famous Korean palaces to vibrant neighborhoods like Hongdae and Myeongdong. But enough about location. The place has a comfortable bed to sleep, a clean bathroom to shower, a wide sofa to relax, a nice desk and chairs to read some and study some, not to mention a refrigerator and all the devices you can ask for cooking. What's more? Dae Joon is a very kind and accommodating host.
I really enjoyed my stay in Kang's apartment.
I am an American and had been staying in a more Americanized hotel in Korea prior to my arrival. I did not find it to my liking and my travel mates and I decided we wanted something more authentic during our vacation. Kang's was the perfect place!
When we made it to the apartment, Kang was waiting for us and helped us with our bags (4 American females traveling, so we had many, heavy bags!).
It was in a nice neighborhood, with many shops and restaurants to explore, walking distance to the subway, and not hard to get a cab in area.
Kang was a great host. He gave us a list of places in the neighborhood as well as maps which made walking on foot even easier! He provided enough towels, blankets, soaps, etc for my fellow travelers and I. He was quick to answer questions (I was a tourist, after all) and made my stay very pleasurable. He even arranged a car service for me to the airport upon my departure and helped me get my bags down the stairs.
If I am in Korea again, I would definitely stay with Kang again. :)
