  • Location is the best thing about this apartment! it's right at the best shopping lane in hongdae! really convenient location. you can find many cafes, pubs and restaurants easily. my friends and i didn't have to walk much further when we wanted to look for a midnight snack.
    Toilet is really quiet small and cramp. The carpet on the floor also feels sticky and seems dirty. The mattress on the double bed is too springy. you can literally feel the springs when you lie on bed! other than that, the apartment has all necessary amenities.

  • Robert met us at Hongik University subway station even though we arrived very late. He brought us back to the room which was exactly as it was portrayed in the advertisement. The door had a keypad entry which made us feel extremely safe. There were travel guides and converters in a drawer for our use along with a book in English on how to use the ammenities in the apt. The room is conveniently located by subway line 2. The BEST exit of Hongik Station is exit #7. We found #7 to be the closest and most convenient. There are several restaurants and a convenience store literally 200 steps outside the door of this room. Whenever we had a question, we texted Robert and he responded...always very helpful and informative. He gave us our privacy and was never intrusive. When we travel, we prefer to use our money on shopping and tourist attractions...so saving money on lodging was important to us. This apt. was perfect since we only slept there. The ease of using airbnb, Robert's availability to answer questions, and the basic accommodations made this apt. a great deal for the price. I would stay here again. The wash machine only washes in cold water..fyi. Only 1 bath towel is provided per person. The air conditioning was a GREAT feature for the price! The beds were slightly uncomfortable, but for the price, I would still stay here again. There are 3 other rooms on the first floor with this room and we never saw anyone coming or going...so it was very quiet and clean. For anyone wanting to get to the Coffee Prince cafe, when you walk out of this apt., turn left at the street and go down to the eye glass business on the corner. Turn right onto that street and walk to the end of the road. Coffee Prince is on your right at the end of the street. Est. walk time: 7 minutes. Thank you, Robert, for providing an affordable room so we had money to spend on other things---like the N. Grill at the top of Namsan Tower! (Robert called and made the reservation after I emailed him for assistance).

  • Robert,nosso anfitrião,é uma pessoa muito gentil e nos deu todas as orientações e atenção. Um grande anfitrião.
    As acomodações estavam bem de acordo com o esperado,superando até um pouco as expectativas pela localização,fantástico.
    O bairro é uma graça,um lugar onde se acha de tudo a qualquer hora e com pessoas muito amigáveis. Pode-se fazer muitas coisas a pé e tem facilidade de condução para qualquer lugar que se queira ir.
    Foi realmente uma experiência espetacular.

  • The room was what i expected. Excellent location in Hongdae. Easily accessible to subway, nightlife and good food! Everything you need is 5 minutes away. Room was clean and had all the necessities. Robert was very helpful and replied quick whenever we needed help with anything. Will definitely stay here again the next time i'm back in Korea. Thank you Robert!

  • Been in Robert place for a week. It was a pleasant stay. Its location is very convenient. It is very near convenient store and honggik university station. Also there are many restaurants near it. Robert is also very helpful and will help you when you have any questions. Will definitely go back to his place when I go back korea for a visit! :)

  • Robert is a very helpful and nice host. We loved the simple and comfortable room that he provided us. I am sure to keep in contact with him if i need to come back to Korea in the near future.

    Thanks Robert for the pleasant stay in Korea! We will see you soon, hopefully!

  • Robert is very nice, he picked my friends(which stayed at his other listing) and I up at Hongik station and drove us to our place and showed some things to look out for to remember where we live. He also was very prompt in replying when something was needed. My boyfriend and I stayed at Robert's place for 8 days and this place is the perfect size for what I wanted. Everything was in detailed of how to go here and there, so it was easy. Even though it's in Hongdae, it's in a more peaceful nice area which is close by to everything needed.
    Some minor things about the place for me is the washing machine is outside so I would have to wait for it to bring back before going out, there was no tissue paper in the tissue box(not a big deal since I used toilet paper) and the space around the toilet is kind of small to sit comfortably. Other than that everything else is fine.

    The one and only thing I was very disappointed in was I asked ahead of time if there was a parking spot for my boyfriend to park his car and Robert said yes, but things didn't go that way. One of the main reasons why I booked this place was because there was supposedly parking. The place my boyfriend parked(where my friends stayed, Robert's other listing), the owner of that building called my boyfriend to move his car and that he can't park there(weird since there is enough space to park there too). I'm not sure if it's because my boyfriend is a Korean who lives in Korea that Robert said some things to him that didn't make sense, such as it was his fault in parking there and he should understand the situation. My boyfriend told me he understood the situation but Robert didn't have to say those other things, and in the beginning it was just blaming and there was no apology for it until later. I didn't understand how it's my boyfriend's fault when I already asked ahead of time before I went to Korea/booked the place. My boyfriend had to go all the way back home to move his car while we were out, and for the rest of the days, he had to find parking somewhere else. Don't get me wrong, we think Robert is very nice and kind, but when it came to this situation, it was dealt badly.

    Overall I would stay here again.

    Thanks so much Robert.

  • Robert's guesthouse is located at the most convenient of places, just a mere 5 minutes walk to the subway station, food stalls and if you are a party-goer, clubs too!! Robert has been a really really, and I mean really nice host to us staying there and I really appreciate it a lot.

    The place itself is just nice for us as it wasn't excessively huge or small but rather just nice and as we seldom stay indoors, it didn't really matter. The most important thing was the location, located near convenience stalls such as 7-11 or G25 and also various Korean restaurants, roadside stalls (that are so good), bars, cafes and clubs.

    Overall the trip itself was wonderful! I have been to Seoul for 4 times including this and stayed at the best hotels but Robert's hospitality and his guesthouse's location is one of a kind and for that it was my best trip to Seoul yet! Definitely going to stay at his place when I return 3 months later! Thanks so much Robert! See you soon!! 너무 고마워요! ^^

About
Hi, Im Robert, a host of this cozy, comfortable and awsome house. I'm really happy to be the host for you. I love to meet new people and get to know them. Also I enjoy hiking and climbing. I'm really looking forward to meet you, valuable guests through airbnb.com! Cuz I've travelled many countries, I understand what travelers need in new place and could be your kind travel advisor for any place in Korea. Most travellers stay in hotels for business staying out of Korea but I thought a guesthouse has its own charm so I made up my own guesthouse in Korea for foreign travellers like me. I would like to introduce attractions and nice restaurants in Seoul, help you out to make the itinerary. Hope you will have a wonderful and unforgetable memory of Seoul trip when you stay in my apartment! I'm just ready to see you. Warm welcome to Hongdae. Reserve now!
