I stayed at Kiwoong's apartment for 4 days. The apartment is clean and looks just exactly in the pictures. Absolutely great location everything you need is here. To Subway station is just 5-10 mins walk. Highly recommend!
Kiwoong was a very responsive host, he solved a couple of our problems within a day. He met us on our way to the meeting (email hidden). and helped with our baggage. The apartment is very easy to be reached from the airport, it's a first stop of Airport bus # 6006, then you just walk 30 meter till you see a sign "Garosugil" and turn right. It's about 7 min walk to the apartment even with a baggage.
The apartment looks a bit nicer on the pictures than in real life, but it's clean and warm, so we lived there just fine. The location is nice, many shops, restaurants and coffee places around.
We were traveling with a toddler, and we needed to cook more than usual travelers, so we did feel a lack of kitchen appliances, we had to buy additional pot and some other staff to feel more comfortable.
The big plus was that laundry machine was also a drier too, that helped a lot.
Had a great experience at Kiwoong Ko's apartment. He met us shortly after we arrived in the area. The apartment was clean and exactly as described, and in an outstanding location just off of Garosugil Rd.
Close to the metro (10 mins walk)
Close to airport limousine bus stop (10mins walk, 10K KRW single ticket to the airport)
Clean, modern, smart, tidy apartment
Noisy area, even at night. Got woken up a number of times.
No English instructions for the washing machine
Had to buy toilet paper and tea towel to dry the dishes
I had a lovely time in Kiwoong's place. It's so close to Sinsa station and all the little cafes and shops. The apartment was nice and cozy, and had all the items to meet my travel needs. Thank you!
My girlfriend and I had a great experience staying at Kiwoong's place. The location of his place was so convenient - shopping and restaurants right at the doorstep. And checkin / checkout was seamless. Can't ask for much more. Would definitely stay here again next time we're back in Seoul.
Host: Kiwoong was very responsive by email. He helped us with a couple of requests during the stay as well! Apartment: The apartment was in-line with what was pictured. The only issue that we had was that we needed an exact address for taxis and other pickups we arranged, and the address provided by the host was a 2-minute walk form the flat. Location: Absolutely great in a charming part of the city with restaurants and cafes.
Kiwoong was really helpful as a host and allowed us to leave our luggages in his apartment till late. Location-wise, the apartment was what we were looking for because it is a 10 minute walk from the airport bus stop and we were really fond the the area.
We spent six days at Kiwoong's place in the beginning of our trip to South Korea. Kiwoong was very communicative from the beginning, sending a map and contact info well beforehand. He took us to the place personally and was well available, when we had questions.
The place itself has a brilliant location, right off the super-trendy Garosu-gil street which has plenty of cool stores, cafes and restaurants. Subway station is also a short(-ish) walk from there, and there are plenty of convenience stores and a larger grocery store nearby.
The apartment is in the basement floor, so the views are pretty nonexistent and there can be a few mosquitoes buzzing around from time to time. Beds are a bit on the stiff side, but it didn't disturb our sleep. Kitchen is clean and has everything you need - the laundry machine even doubles as a dryer! The utility area between the kitchen and the outer wall wasn't as pristine as the rest of the apartment, but most of the time we didn't have any business there anyway. The apartment also has an electric lock and Kiwoong let us choose our own combination, so there was no stress about keys. There are separate air conditioning units for both bedrooms, The walls are also thick enough, so small chatter or snoring shouldn't be disturbing the sleep in the other bedroom.
If living Gangnam style is up your alley and you don't mind staying in basement floor, this is a great choice.
