The owners are a really lovely couple.....regarding the place.....probably the only problem might be those steps....that is if u are not a light traveller like us....but if u have only a light rucksack......its a really good and safe place....and its 3 bedrooms and 2 (email hidden) u wont have any problem at all as u wont have to wait. Pluz if u are coming from or going to incheon airport...the airport limousine bus stop is just a few mins away..
Thank you very much estelle.....and sorry for all those confusion on the first day.....
We had a wonderful stay at Robins Nest. It's situated in a central area to Itaewon with many local eateries and underground rail in close proximity. Highlights of Robins BnB was the classic decor and HEATED FLOORING (welcomed after a day outside in the cold). We enjoyed adventuring up a set of stairs but if you have lots of heavy bags coming around the rear side street might be better.
Estelle was a great host and before arrival had emailed us excellent directions. We flew in late and she met us that night with some great tips.
All in all we would definitely stay here again.
We had a great stay at Estelle's guesthouse. Both Estelle and her husband Ian welcomed us with open arms and even helped us with the luggages.
The floor is heated and it really does help during the cold weather. We absolutely love the washing machine and dryer. Those will definitely come in handy for those who are considering a long stay.
Even though we did not manage to stay in the room that we booked, we got an alternative that is equally good. The stairs to the guesthouse is a challenge by itself. If you are fit and game for a daily workout, you would not mind climbing up the stairs. Their guesthouse is ideal for backpackers and those who do not bring huge luggages.
Estelle was also very kind in drawing us a map on how to get to Itaewon subway station from their place. She also helped us in booking a jumbo cab for us to drive us to the airport as we had more than six luggages!
All in all, we had a great time and we would love to come back again soon :)
Estelle was very kind to accommodate our early arrival after landing in Seoul. Robin's Nest is in Itaewon, which is very lively with many restaurants, shops, and pubs. It is also a short walk away from the Itaewon subway station, which can take you to places like Myeongdong, and Gangnam. The kitchen has a stove, cookery, and utensils. There are also bread, a toaster, and a coffee maker. Even if you don't understand Korean, the TV has programming in English. The place is very well maintained and stocked for guests.
Ian and Estelle were there to welcome me when I checked in. The location is a little hard to find by cab if you (website hidden) map, but Estelle's directions are wonderful. Yes, there are steep stairs to get to the place so be ready if you have heavy luggage. Other option is have the cap drop you off at the upper street and go down the steps instead.
The room was clean and tidy, while the rest of the flat was well stocked with breakfast items/utensils and travel guides. The available washer/dryer was a godsend! There are two bathroom/showers so there was definitely no wait (there are 4 other rooms).
The location was extremely convenient in the main strip in Itaewon and a couple blocks from the station. Very easy to go check out nearby bars (District) and tons of restaurants nearby.
Was a welcome surprise that shampoo, wash, toothpaste were also provided, so really didn't need to bring much else.
The only drawback was that the alley access to the house is rather narrow for someone as big and tall as me.

I'm a researcher and a semi-professional actress. I also enjoy music, travel, cooking and meeting people! =)
I've travelled to many countries working on diverse international projects. Those frequent travels made me a professional backpacker ;-) During my stays outside Korea, I usually stayed in hotels for business but I also enjoyed staying in B&Bs and guesthouses where I can feel at home in a cozy and warm atmosphere. So oneday I made up my mind to open up my own guesthouse in my house in Korea for foreign travellers like me.
I'm looking forward to meeting you!! :-)
