  • This is the perfect location to stay at if you want to explore Insadong, Myeongdong, and Bukchon Hanok Village (along with other sightseeing spots around that area). It is only a few minutes walk to Insadong, and about a 15-20 minute wlak to Myeongdong (although you could walk a few minutes to the subway, but by the time you're at the Myeongdong subway, you could have probably just walked there during that time).

    It was really easy to communicate with Mira. I never actually saw her, but she responded to all my queries over (website hidden) really quickly. In addition, her English is really good! When you place a reservation, she will E-mail you a welcome package that includes a variety of recommendations, including restaurants and sightseeing locations. The apartment itself is spacious and divided into three sections: when you walk in, the bathroom and shower are to your right, the next section is a generous kitchen/dining area, and the last section is the bedroom. The room has everything you need, from body wash and toothpaste to kitchen utensils and a laundry machine.

    This is a solid place to stay at, especially if you're planning to stay for a week or longer, or are planning to cook for yourself (but why would you when there's so much good food around!?). I would come back here again to visit Insadong and Myeongdong in the future. By the way, I believe this location is around central Seoul, so it's convenient to travel to all directions of Seoul from here.

  • The apartment is located in a really great area, it's safe and convenient. There are a couple of 24-hour convenient stores nearby and a lot of food places that open till late. The apartment's also very clean and with all the amenities you'd need for a comfortable stay. We stayed there for almost 2 weeks and had no problems at all. It's also very well located in that it's minutes from the train station and areas like hongdae and myeongdong are just a few stops away, it's also walking distance from insadong.

    Mira is a great host as well, she's quick to respond to queries and incredibly helpful and giving. I'd definitely recommend this airbnb listing. Thanks so much for everything, Mira!

  • Mira is an excellent host who responds quick to concerns and request, her place is well kept and clean. It has all the amenities that you need.

    My experience with regards to her suggestions on places to visit was superb, i have tried most of the restaurants and places to visits and it was all excellent. Me and my family enjoyed our trip to korea.

    I would recommend her place to my friends and family as it is centrally located, walking distance to shopping areas, tour bus points, and train station.

  • Mira's apartment is arguably all that you need for a comfortable and clean place to stay while in Seoul. Having stayed here for 12 nights with my family, we can safely say that it was a great place to stay. Perhaps the best part of the apartment is its location; it really is close by to so many things!

    1) it really is minutes away the train station (Jonggak, Exit 1 and 2), bus stops and even the Airport Limousine stop (no. 6002), which takes you straight to Incheon Airport for only 10,000won per person
    2) again minutes away to the vibrant Insadong, or if shopping is your thing, then Myeongdong is only a 10-15 minute walk away.
    3) A 7-11 convenience store is located right at the lobby and is open 24 hours.
    4) Food - the apartment building is an officetel, which means that there are lots of restaurants within the building itself that you can try. Many other cafes are just around the corner, so you can be sure to get your morning coffee fix!

    Lastly, Mira herself is a wonderful host, and has been a fantastic help throughout the whole time. During the stay, we had experienced a temporary blackout (which lasted no longer than 5-7mins), but upon contacting Mira, she helped out so excellently and kept calling the security guards to check on the problem. Rest assured that you're always in good hands during the stay at Mira's apartment.

  • Mira's apartment was indeed in a fabulous location. Her service was very prompt and she answered queries almost immediately. The apartment was well equipped for our stay and very comfortable.

    April 2014
  • My family and I (total of 5) stayed at Mira's apartment for 17 days. Mira was not there to greet us and we had a mishap the minute we arrived- the door would not open. The six digit code we provided was not working and luckily I was able to go back to our old emails that had the original password.

    As advertised, Mira's apartment is situated in an ultimate location. Walking distance to many places- we've walked as far as Dongdaemun and as close to Gwanghwamun (we're from NYC, so we are used to walking). Myeongdong, Insadong, Namsan Tower are all close by as well. Using the train system was easy to navigate- just make sure you know which exit to get out! And so many eating options in the neighborhood. Check out the lower lobby in the building for dining options too!

    There were a couple of things that Mira could have made our stay a little more comfortable such as supplying extra bedsheets, blankets, pillows for the cot, offering free cleaning service for the second week since we were there for a lengthy period (especially the bathroom!) and better instructions on how to operate some things in the apartment (where the garbage needed to be dumped, how to use the hot plate, make the refrigerator colder, how to turn on the ondol- floor heating system).

    The washing machine was a total blessing to have (read the white binder for instructions). Because my typical Korean mother needed her TV time, I asked Mira if we can have a TV installed in the living room. Mira was very accommodating and offered her own personal TV during our stay.

    If you are looking to stay in a central located place in Seoul for a short period of time, I recommend staying at Mira's place.

    April 2014
  • Mira is a really friendly and responsive host. We didn't meet her personally but she answered all our questions. She also provides an helpful guide with restaurants recommandations.
    The flat is nice, clean and comfortable. It is ideally located to explore Seoul, close to the public transports. Perfect experience overall.

  • Staying at Mira's place made my experience in Seoul so great. The apartment is so centrally located that I was able to explore every area I wanted so easily most of the time without even changing subway lines as there are 3 different lines within walking distance. Also there are many interesting places, like Insa dong and Samcheong dong within walking distance. The place around the apartment is very lively very night of the week and all great places and museums are very close by.

    The apartment itself was so clean, tidy and organised. It is so spacious and light filled. There is a folder full of useful information and everything you need for a comfortable stay is provided.

    I cannot recommend this place highly enough. If you are after a clean, comfortable and convenient stay in Seoul, stay at Mira's.

    March 2014
  • Mira's place is absolutely amazing, close to everything especially Insadong and the metro, Jonggak station is 2min walk away. Also close to Myeongdong, Gyeongbokgung place and Changdeokung place as well. There is convenient stores right downstairs with a coffee shop and a few restaurant, safe building and neighborhood but then it's overall very safe in Seoul! Property is clean, pretty big space and equipped with all the amenities you will need and the bed is so comfortable! We had a wonderful time in Seoul and the location of the place really made everything better! :)

    Highly recommend staying here if you want to be in the center of Seoul, thanks Mira for everything, she was an excellent host despite she didn't have time to meet up. But all responses are being answered and communication with her was not at all a problem, very attentive and responsive. Will certainly want to stay here when I'll be back in Seoul!!!

  • Mira's place really is in the Ultimate location! It was really easy to find from Jongno-il ga, just a short walk (less than 5mins). The many other attractions such as the palaces, myeong-dong, insa-dong are all within walking distance as well.

    The apartment itself is very clean and comfortable, equipped with all the necessities.

    Although I did not get to meet Mira in person, she was always just a phone call away. She answered all my queries promptly and provided so much valuable information and recommendations.

    I highly recommended her place to anyone visiting Seoul. I had the best time, thanks heaps Mira!!

About
I love to travel, meet new people and explore new things/places. , I have worked at business consulting firm for more than 4 years and now I am working in non-profit organization. I have traveled to various destinations such as Cuba, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Columbia Thailand, New Zealand, Spain, Morocco, etc. Additionally, I am addicted to visit Jeju island and I often visit Jeju 3~4 times a year. (So, I can definitely recommend hidden place including hostel, restaurants and diverse types of experience ;) However, Seoul is definitely my favorite city (I have been living here for about 30 years) and I hope to share my love for this vibrant city with others through air BnB. As homeowner, I want guests to see, feel and get a taste of authentic Seoul. As a proud Seoulite, I invite you to come and enjoy the cherry blossoms of spring, the summer heat, streets decorated with autumn leaves and snow-laden trees of winter. Hopefully, here will be part of your cherished memories of Seoul when you return home.
