If you are travelling with 3 young kids and 3 luggage plus a baby stroller like we do, get MINA to arrange the meet and greet from the airport ( especially in wintry conditions ) it will cost you KWR$100,000 in cash. The slopes and steps to the house did not deter us. Walk down Samcheong-dong is nice. Restaurants, cafés, convenience stores, retail shops aplenty and great bonus is the the Bukchon Hanok Village that is within the area as well. Bus 11 brings you to City Hall, Seoul Station, Dongdaemun easily. Cost KWR$500 for adults. The apartment is actually withinthe city centre limits. Nearest metro is Anguk on Line 3 ( about 20 mins walk away if you are not distracted by the shops along the way ) Mina's place is a home away from home. Under-floor heating is adequate for the 3 bedroom apartment ( we only have access to 2 ) there's a queen bed in one room and ondol with futon sleeping in the other 2 rooms. Plenty of space for the kids to move around. Washing machine is available. Everything is provided in the house. Mina sent a hair dryer when I requested. She is very helpful pre trip providing info requested and upon arrival suggested several useful tips. She also prep address cards with phone numbers in case you need to tell cab drivers when heading back home after a tiring day. Wonderful stay ...thanks Mina.
My family and I booked Mina's apartment for a whole week. It was nice, clean and cosy. My parents especially, were happy with the place as it was spacious with good facilities provided. Seoul was quite cold in November, especially for us who are from Malaysian, a hot climate country. So we really appreciate the heater, piping hot shower and lots of thick blankets!
Finding the apartment is not easy initially, so we got the taxi driver to call Mina and it was easy once that was settled. There's a bus 5 minutes from the apartment that goes directly to subway station. But we also enjoyed a nice walk to the station, that takes about 15-20 minutes. We walked to Gyeongbukgung, Cheongdukgung and Bukchon Hanok Village. There's also a 24-hour mart 10 minutes from the apartment. It's very safe to walk around proven by the fact that we always returned past 11pm with the streets deserted.
Mina is very easy to contact. We can ask her anything and she'll reply the same day. And she'll also supply things that we need very fast. I was extra appreciative that she took the trouble to help us print our boarding passes and book a van to the airport.
Everyone of my family is happy with the apartment and if you are traveling in a group, with no walking/hiking problem, you should really consider Mina's apartment.
My two friends and I enjoyed very much staying at Mina's appartment that made us feel like if we were in a house in Seoul. The area is right at the bottom of the mountain with a nice breeze in comparison to center Seoul. So many good restaurants, cafés and cute stores are in that neighborhood and at walking distance. Plus you get very easily to center city, the train station or a subway with the bus 11 that is right at the bottom of the street, only 2mn walk from the house. Mina is extremely helpful for whatever question you may have. We highly recommend that place to enjoy a stay in Seoul.
Located in a nice, traditional area (with a lot of Hanokhouses) we stayed for a short week in Mina's place. The house is located close to the woods (only 5 minutes walk), restaurants and coffeebars, shops, palaces and public traffic (bus 11 is only a few minutes from the house).
It's a trendy area, great to walk around, in which it is more difficult to find more authentic Korean food. And most of the restaurants close early here (09.00 p.m.). But the house is located close to Insadong and other nice areas where restaurants are openend until late in the evening.
To get to the house will take some climbing stairs and small steep streets, but when you're there it's great. Mina helps you with your luggage, which was very friendly. The house is nicely decorated and clean, the rooms are spacious, the view is great (especially from the roof garden) and all the things you need are there. It's a relaxing place after a day in busy Seoul.
We would recommend this place to other airbnb travellers.
There were 7 of us who rented the entire apartment for 1 month. The apartment is very clean, and is located conveniently in Samcheong-dong, where all the nice little cafes are located at. The bus just outside the apartment goes to major subway stations like Seoul, City Hall and Gwanghwamun, and the frequency is pretty high. Throughout our stay in the apartment, Mina was very spontaneous in providing us with our daily necessities whenever they ran out. As others have mentioned, it may get a little inconvenient if you had many luggages, but Mina was very helpful when we had to lug our huge luggages to the apartment. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
Mina has a wonderful little house in a quaint part of town. It's tastefully designed and cutely decorated. Literally a few minute walk to the best coffee shop-laden area of Seoul, full of great small shops. I enjoyed staying there, loved the huge window and large living room, and found the bed quite comfortable.
As others have mentioned its not an easy walk if you are infirmed in any way, but if you are healthy it's a short 3-minute walk to the main street. It's only really an issue with luggage - other than that I thoroughly enjoyed the fresher air and quietude, an oasis from the crazy hustle and bustle that is Seoul.
We had a group of 7 people and stayed at the house for 5 nights. The house was very clean, comfortable and warm. It was in a great location. There were many things to do and eat within walking distance. You will need to walk up a hilly path to get to the house, so it might be difficult if you are travelling with older folks or with lots of luggage.
Mina was very helpful and nice, she let us see the place before we booked and picked us up when we arrived at the airport bus stop near the house. I would definitely consider staying there again and recommend it to others.
We loved our stay here! The house was warm, clean, and worked well for our family of five. The kitchen was very nice and had everything we needed to cook with. The location was convenient - close to the bus stop, ATM, dining, and shopping - mostly women's though. Lots of cafes to get baked goods and coffee at.
This house may not work for you if you cannot carry your luggage up a cement path on a hill. There is no access by car. But the path and houses in the this area are very fun to walk around and look at.
I was also glad that there was a washer. That was super helpful.
Mina was VERY helpful and kind. She met us late at night to take us to the house and came early one morning to shovel several inches of snow away. And, she helped us out when we had some difficultly ordering food to be delivered from a restaurant.
We want to thank Mina for being such a wonderful and caring host.
The house is located on a scenic hill and easily accessable by a short walk up the stairs.
Access to the nearby subway is easy, just take a 10-15 min walk down a beautiful road with many restaurants and coffee-shops -or take a 5 min ride by bus or taxi.
Living room, bedroom and kittchen are decorated very tasteful and are equipped with everything guests need.
We stayed in Mina's house during very cold winter days and the heating system turned all rooms into a very comfortable temperature -I loved the heated floors!
We are planning on staying with Mina again after our return to Seoul, which is scheduled for beginning of April.
Once again thank you very much for providing us with such a fantastic place.

It was a little heart shocking when we read an almost negative reviews submitted by one of her previous guest just right before we check in. I admit that i was a little anxious as we were on a family holiday. My parents is the skeptical type.
The very first reason we chose this unit, we find that it is practically near to most the places we wanted to go and it is said that we need to walk approx 20mins to the nearest subway minus off the short walk from the house. Minah has provided us with various road plans and directions to the places we wanted to go. If you could read map, i am sure you can pretty much estimate the distance and journey. this was what i did before deciding to secure my bookings with Minah. Around the neighbourhood, lovely!!!! if you are a coffee lover, this is a small paradise for you.
Overall, my family love the place, is clean, neat and well -equipped. Very cozy indeed. If you are looking for a place to experience a local culture, this is a place. We loved the experience of the 5 - 10mins walk to the house, as seen on Korean dramas. It was lovely that Minah offers her help to help my mother to look for genuine korean ginseng. And indeed, her recommendation was great. the price we gotten is far cheaper than in flight duty free. Credits to Minah's daughter, April!!!
For sure, i am back i will certainly stay at the very same place again. As, i did not completely explore the neighbourhood well. It was just a 4nights stay and is never enough. Cheers and thank you for your hospitality Minah!!!! Kamsahamidah!
