Jungmin's apartment was a really great space in an amazing location. It was very easy for us to travel around Seoul since the apartment is right where the metro station is. There were clean towels and a well-equipped kitchen. We also enjoyed the brightly-lit room when the sun was out. Transportation to the airport was super easy as the stop for the shuttle bus was just in front of the apartment. Jungmin was a great host - always there to help us out. :) There were 6 of us in 2 of her apartments in the same building, so that worked really well for us. Thank you for the wonderful stay!
The apartment was nice and spacious. We had 4 people only one towel was provided, was extra costs for more towels. Location wise it was ideal as the train station was at the door step.
The apartment is very well located in Gangnam near tons of bars, restaurants, etc. It is kind of a long subway ride to the older part of town across the river but the Seoul metro system is very efficient. The apartment is nice and modern but unfortunately the outside of the windows are so dirty that it affects the view (they are unreachable without a window cleaning crew). Otherwise, the view of Seoul is great. The place was clean and comfortable and the wifi is fast-- we spent a few long mornings just lounging in the apartment. The only downside is that there is a strange smell from the laundry machine when you walk in but you don't notice it after a few minutes. If you have several days to spend in Seoul and want a good, modern place to call home on a budget this is a great choice.
Comfortable apartment, very good location. We are very pleased!
This place was awesome. Its location was perfect; 20 to 30 minutes to Hongdae, Shinchon, Jongno, Insadong, Itaewon and so many other spots. It was right in front of the subway station, you can literally see the entrance of the building as you walk out from the station. Perfectly safe for me and three other girls. There was EVERYTHING that we needed in the house, we even had to return some stuff that we bought. Definitely will stay again next time. Thanks Jungmin, you had been so nice and kind. You are amazing!!
P.S. Try spicy rice cake on the street, in front of the building. YUMMY!
I think I'll do this in parts.
Fabulous for those who want to be near the touristy areas (e.g. Hongdae, Myeongdong, Gwanghamun, Namdaemun, etc) without being TOO in the city. Train lines #5, #6 and A'rex are pretty useful.
Small, as quite a few Korean apts tend to be. For my husband and I, it was sufficient. A little area to rest, a bedroom, cupboard with ample storage space, kitchenette, etc... and best of all, a nice clean toilet! For someone really particular about toilets, this matters a lot to me!!
Jungmin is fantastic. I really appreciated her prompt replies, and she's beyond helpful. Absolutely fabulous.
THINGS TO NOTE
1. If you've got a lot of luggage, you may not want to take A'rex from Incheon/Gimpo because there are plenty of stairs ... and nope, no elevators that bring you straight up! Taxi might be a better option.
2. Pillows are Korean-sized (smaller than the usual) ... so if you have a big head, you might want to use more than one :P
3. Do your washing by all means, but make sure you have enough space on the rack to dry them..! I did my laundry over two days so it'd have enough time to dry :)
4. For those who like to sleep in, the apartment gets morning sun ... it was my automatic "alarm clock" so you might wanna bring eye pads or something to cover yr eyes.
It was really nice to meet Jungmin in Seoul. And I just love her place so much!!! It's a great location, very easy to access to many lovely places in Seoul. It's clean, simple but have everything i needed. Wish I can have a place like that. I'm planning for my next trip soon, will stay at this place again!
Meanwhile, Jung Min was really helpful. She gave me a lot suggestion. Hope next time i can spend sometime with JungMin.
Good location (near Airport line) and easily assessible to downtown. Jung Min has been a good host and her apartment is clean and spacious enough for 4 pax. Internet access is also fast.
Advise: It would be better to use exit 2 (with lift) and then cross the road to the building if you are carrying heavy luggages.
Staying at this apartment was wonderful. The location was in the middle of everything and by either bus or subway it took about 15-20 minutes to get to most places you'd want to get to (Hongdae, City Hall, palaces, Itaewon). You can even walk to Hongdae or Sinchon in less than an hour if you like to walk. Taking a taxi was the best way to get to Sinchon and cost less than 3,000 won.
The apartment was perfect for two people and being right next to the subway was great. The building was nice and it was very quiet as I never heard the neighbors.
It was a very safe neighborhood (although, in my opinion all of Seoul feels safe) and when we explored the local area we found some AMAZING places to eat. Check out 원조마포할머니빈대떡 which is just northeast of exit 5 or 마포부자갈매기 which is about a 5-7 minute walk to the southeast of the apartment. I found (website hidden) to be really helpful in finding places and using public transportation (you have to know how to read Korean though).
The owner, Jungmin, is wonderful. She was very quick in getting back to me when I e-mailed her. She made us feel very welcome when we stayed at the apartment.
I highly highly recommend staying at this apartment, especially if you are someone who wants the nightlife of Hongdae/Sinchon/Itaewon but also want to get out and see the sights like the palaces or the markets. If you are not interested in going out at night it is still a great location because you can quickly get to any part of Seoul being on 2 subway lines and 2 train lines while surrounded by buses going to all parts of the city.
While there were only two of us, I can see three people staying here comfortably because there was lots of closet space for clothes, the extra bed was firm yet comfortable and with the separate rooms (bedroom and kitchen area with sliding doors in the middle) it will feel like you have your own space.
the apartment was realy nice.
it was very clean and has floor heating.
i staied winter time, so the floor heating was very comfortable.
nothing noisy sound there, just from window we could enjoy LOTTE CITY HOTEL christmas illumination.
and the location is nice too. just under ground is subway station, a convenience store. very close big supermarket, best bread shop, korean food restrant. and easy accces for around seoul area. i thing there is nothig ploblem stay seoul ;)
