Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I love this guesthouse very very much!
    The location of the house is not really far away from Itaewon station. It's about 7-min distance from Itaewon station exit 1. It's still convenient although it's a bit difficult for us to pull our heavy suitcases while walking along the ramp XD Thank you for Mely's help as well!
    The house is big and comfortable! There's a house cat called Fluffy and it's cute! (Although it is not really friendly XD) We booked room A with a double-sized bed. The room is clean and large enough for us (two girls)
    Mely and Keegan have a baby girl. We could always see her when we were at home. We played with her and she is really pretty and cute!
    Thank you for Mely! She looked after us like our mother >< She even treated us a kimchi soup on the day we left! She and Keegan are really nice hosts! We love this guesthouse very much and we don't wanna leave T_T
    Now we have already back to Hong Kong and we miss Mely very much T_T
    We will absolutely live in the guesthouse again when we come to Seoul!
    Thank you for looking after us, Mely ><

  • We had a great stay in Mely's apartment ! It is very close to Itaewon station so its very convenient for moving in Seoul. We only spent two nights there but everything was fine. Mely, Keegan and their adorable baby are very nice and friendly. I really wish I could have spent more time with them but we were quite busy. :( I hope to see them again !!

  • Mely is a VERY passionate host. Although she went on vacation while my staying, but her help was more than anyone can do. The reply is as fast as if she's with the computer all the time.

    The place is awesome. The room is light , you can enjoy the nature light without any artificial lighting. The place is clean,too. There's a kitchen and a living room where you might be able to use all the facilities.

    Overall. it's a place you can choose to stay while visiting Seoul!

  • We did not have the opportunity to meet with Mely in person. Instead, we were hosted by Rama and her sister in Mely’s home. They were wonderful hosts and it felt like we had roommates while we stayed there. Our third “roommate”, the cat, was quite sweet once you gave it a chance to get used to you being around.

    The kitchen is spacious and we cooked quite a bit. The bedroom was clean and comfortable for two. In the shower we were provided with shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Overall, we had a lovely stay!

  • Mely's appartment is very cozy and the room is very comfortable. The apartment is very close to Itaewon's main area, so very convenient. I recommend it.

  • Mely's house is nice and cozy. My friend and I felt like home. It isn't far from Itaewon station. It is actually pretty easy to travel about the city from the location. The cat stays in her place, could barely see her. They've got everything for us, breakfast provided. We love the baby. Mely and Aria (the baby) are very nice and friendly. We feel like friends and sisters. Thank you Mely. Hope to see you again!! :)

  • Mely is very Nice~we arrived seoul but our mobile phone could not dial since the sim card not suitable for korea, but mely arrived on time so we met happily. And the life stayed in mely's home is happy and relax.

  • Mely was an amazing hostess!!! I did not do lots of trip studying before I went to Seoul, and also taking care of my mom for the entire trip made everything even harder. However, Mely helped us a lot. I could not imagine what the visit would be like if Mely did not help us that much. And this sweet couple has the world's cutest and most adorable baby!!! Next time in Seoul, I will definitely stay in Mely's home again!!!

  • Mely is a great host. She waited for us a help us with our luggage when we arrive ..10 mins walk to Itaewon subway. Plenty of eateries and pubs. The rooms are a little small for my family but the price is just right. Nice house and able to cook simple food using their kitchen . They is a grocery shop just about 150meter away. Will recommend to others

We are a married couple in our 30's with a baby and a cat, living in a comfortable and clean apartment in Itaewon, Seoul. We look forward to meeting new people from all over the world, and we aim to help make your Seoul vacation wonderful. Ed wrote, I stayed with Mely and Keegan at their lovely apartment for 4 weeks...Oct-Nov 2012 and I recommend this listing very highly. This couple is genuinely nice, friendly and fun to be around. Meli also keeps a clean and neat apartment. I also note that it is very private if you prefer and most of the time you have the apartment by yourself as they work afternoon shifts. Of particular note, the larger bedroom has a very nice mattress and Meli made me "chicken soup" when I was not feeling well. They also met me at the Seoul ICN airport and arranged transportation to there apartment. I wish them well and now consider them friends. Ed from Switzerland
