Staying at Mina's house in Samcheongdong was a wonderful experience. The house is up a paved footpath (about 150 yards?) at the top end of a classic Seoul neighborhood that includes Bukchon Hanok Village. The part of the neighborhood the house is in slants up the steep incline of the wooded hill, so typical of Seoul, that bounds Samcheongdong on the north. There is a terrific view from the living room and from the rooftop deck.
From the house one has access to some of the most popular destinations in Seoul. We walked to four palaces and one major shrine. The neighborhood itself is chock full of cafes, restaurants and boutiques. We also walked out of the Samcheongdong neighborhood (south of the shrine) and into the "real" Seoul, as opposed to the tourist mecca Samcheongdong represents. There, there is a terrific variety of stores and other city experiences. Seoul Tower is not too far away, but probably too far to walk. Luckily, taxis are inexpensive and everywhere to be found.
All in all, Mina's house was a great deal. Everything was in working order, it is quite quiet, and the bed and furnishings are quite comfortable. We would certainly stay there again, and recommend it to anyone.
Can I give 6 stars? This place was great, from the welcome and cleanliness to the location. We stayed with our young daughter and it was a perfect place for us - we had plenty of space, it was a very close walk to the Samcheong park and to the charming local businesses. The neighborhood itself is tucked away in the mountains that protected Seoul from invasion, making it feel like you're staying in a small town, not a huge city. This is a huge plus in a city with 20 million people. Mina made us feel very welcome. She clearly takes good care of her property and wants guests to feel welcome. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Seoul,
Mina was the most gracious host of all. She was very accommodating. She helped us with our tours and she really went out of her way to help us. She made life easy for us in Korea. She was like a "mother" to us.
The place was very clean. It has all the amenities that we needed like refrigerator, stove, washing machine, hot and cold shower and kitchen wares and utensils and a lot more. It's a home away from home.
The place was near coffee shops, restaurants, stores and bus stop.
Mina was an excellent host. The house was warm and comfortable. I was concerned that the long uphill path would be too much for my 78 year old mother-in-law, but she ended up running circles around us during the whole trip. The house overlooks the presidential administrative offices and is heavily guarded. That offers some level of security for guests at Mina's house. Just be aware that they do not like pictures taken of the compound and you WILL receive a visit if they see you (and they will). The house is in the best part of Seoul, Samcheong, and is within walking distance of the Hanock village and Insadong. Great place, would recommend to others.
