Estelle's accommodations were great, and she was extremely clear and easy to deal with. I stayed for a full week and always felt safe and welcome. Ian was equally helpful. I hope many others will stay and enjoy frequently!
Estelle is very nice host, she helps me a lots, and give me warm welcome, so nice!!! The house is very clean and comfortable, and all the home stuff can be freely used, just like stay at home. She made a details instruction to arrive this house, it was easily found. That is fantastic memory of me , if I will come to Korea again, I will stay at her house again!!!!
Estelle is such a nice, friendly lady! she is very helpful! she even help us to book ski shuttle via korean internet!
very flexible, let us chk in at 9 am! gave us lot of sightseeing suggestions, what a wonderful lady!
she free upgrade me and my fd to a double room! the room is very clean, comfortable, and tidy! i love the guesthouse very much , make me feel like home!
u can use the microwave, washing maschine, toaster, hot watermaker. hair dryer....bascially she has everything we need!
ummm,loaction is awesome !! 3 mins walk away from itaewon metro station! so many korean resturant near by! there are also jp, turkish, italian resturant!
i am a frequent traveler, i have been to many places! this place is wooo..."wonderful"! and i strongly recomend this place to you all! a safe, comfortable place with a resonable price !
Estelle was a lovely host. She was available for anything I needed. The guesthouse is very cute and a quick walk away from Itaewon station. The bed was comfy and the place was warm dispiriting the fact that it was cold outside. She checked me in immediately when I arrived and helped me with the portable internet device which I wanted and highly recommend. If you're looking for something comfortable and reasonably priced this us the place for you.
I checked in and found that the apartment has only three rooms and there were only two other male guests staying in the other two rooms ( The owners, Estelle and Ian actually stay in a separate apartment). I was not comfortable with the arrangement, especially since I was a solo female traveler. I felt the owners could have told me earlier so I could make an informed decision before booking. In the end I chose to find alternative accommodation instead. If you are concerned about who you might be sharing the apartment with, you should check with the owners before booking.
I stopped by the Nest for a night. I was supposed to stay longer but due to an unfortunate family situation I had to leave early. Estelle was super quick to respond with whatever needs I had.
The room that I stayed in was nice and clean. Kitchen was a big plus and Estelle gave me some good recommendations on where to check out in Itaewon. It's also very close to the subway station. Overall it was a great experience.
Les plus : très bonne situation géographique, à une centaine de mètres de la bouche de métro Ittaewon ; la machine à laver et le séchoirs ; le lit confortable ; le wifi ; le chauffage au sol.
Les moins : la propriétaire brille par son absence (ni chek-in, ni check-out) ; le niveau de propreté est très sommaire (y.c. nourriture périmée, poubelles pas vidées) ; le petit déjeuner est en self-service, assez sommaire (pain de mie, une seule sorte de céréales, idem pour la confiture, pas de beurre quand j'y étais, café filtre, pas de thé noir, pas d'option "petit déjeuner coréen").
Mon conseil : allez chez Estelle si vous souhaitez une grande indépendance, que n'êtes pas regardant sur la saleté et que vous ne vous formalisez pas à l'idée de partager douche et wc avec 5 potentiels colocataires. Par ailleurs, si Estelle vous indique qu'il faut payer un supplément à l'arrivée, je vous conseille de refuser car vous trouverez un rapport qualité/prix équivalent dans le quartier. Bon séjour à tous et à toutes !
Estelle is a wonderful lady! The place is perfect to feel as home and very safe. The kitchen is a great plus. I'm a Los Angeles male traveling alone and desperately using the free wifi at the seoul station trying to find a place to stay for the night. Out of several places she was the only one to response so quickly. And Itaewon is right in the middle of everything so it was very nice to sightsee everything in Seoul. Highly recommend it. The only bad thing is the stairs to her place but still worth it. ^_^
I had a really great time at Robin's nest!!
Estelle and her husband are so welcoming and really care about their host!
The house is really cute and it's nice living here!
You have all you need, laundry, good food and a nice room with all the necessary stuff!
Estelle will make you feel like home and I slept like a baby at her house which is rare when I'm traveling^^
The area is Itaewon so it's tourist zone, good for hanging out or shopping the day, the metro is near so it's really ok to me
You won't find a lot of korean restaurant so if you want one ask Estelle like I did, she will give you the best adress!
I warmly reccomand Robin's nest and will definitely come back again =)
I had a pleasant and perfect stay at Estelle's place. I absolutely loved my time in Seoul and that was mostly due to the privilege of staying at her place. The place is accessible to a nearby subway station. Itaewon is awesome place to stay for foreigners and from the Incheon airport I had no problem to get there. The guest house is up a few stairs. It's something to consider especially when moving heavy bags, like me. You can go around to everywhere in Seoul easily from this place.
Definitely I really recommend this place.
