The room was exactly like the photos. It was clean and quite spacious for two people. Don't make the mistake like me and not press the heater button located outside to get hot water for shower. I actually showered in cold water for two days (which was fine since it was hot) before I had to ask Vicky (Sharon's sister). Pressing a button for hot water is something I'm not familiar with in the states. Location was great as it was in walking distance from many alley way eateries and bars. My favorite area to eat and drink was Gwancheol-dong. Overall, I would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again. Vicky was very nice.
Can only say only positive things about Lavina. The rooms are on the small side so if you plan on staying with your significant other, it may get a little crowded with luggage. Besides that staff are very friendly and will go out of your way to help you out.
The main reason for my trip was to visit family and friends who lived near-by so my main reason for choosing Lavina wasn't around attractions. However, Lavina is a prime location for many attractions. Within walking distance (5 min) you are near Insa-dong, Samchung-dong (10 mins), Gwanghwamun (5 min walk to Subway Line 5, and 1 stop away from Gwanghwamun Station), Gyeongbokgung Palace (5 min walk to Subway Line 3, and 1 stop to palace).
Will stay again when I visit Korea.
Great experience. booked it last minute yet received instant confirmation from Sharon and she even provided detail info for us to get there. My sister and I were satisfied. the flat was clean, modern and comfortable. It is situated in a great location just a street away from Insadong, within 5 minutes to Anguk train station too. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Seoul.
If you are taking the subway in, make sure to take the "Airport Railroad" line, as it is much faster. Everyone is nice, the room is very clean and basically has everything you need. The breakfast in the morning is very nice and very appreciated. There are some amenities, like floor heating, which is very nice, but you need to be able to read basic Korean to use it.
All in all, a lovely stay, and pretty close to the subway as well as Insa-dong, which is a fun little area.
