Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Thank you so much Mely for having us. The house was cozy and the hosts are friendly and helpful. The house is located uphill so it was pretty chilling for the summer. Room was very clean and tidy. Overall, it was a great experience staying over at Mely's. Also got to know two girls from HK who rented the another room.

  • Mely and Keegan were wonderful hosts, the house was clean and comfortable, and they have the most adorable and happy baby I have ever seen. They helped make my stay in Seoul one of the best weeks of my year.

  • Highly recommended!

    Comfortable place to (email hidden) (Mely & Keegan) will definitely make you feel like family. A strategic venue to move around for shopping, with walking distance to the subway station, and bus station!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Mely's! She was friendly and helpful. The location in Itaewon was a few minutes' walk from the subway and has a great rooftop view of the city. There's even a grocery mart nearby for quick snack runs.

  • Mely (email hidden)e 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.

  • Our stay at Mely's flat in the Itaewon-district was very pleasant. Mely (email hidden) and always eager to help us clueless tourists. The room we stayed in was clean and reasonably sized for three persons and their baggage. I can only recommend Mely's BnB.

  • Mely & Keegan made us feel comfortable right from the start of our stay. It was such a pleasant trip; having them as our host have made it an extra memorable one for us. It's such a nice and cosy apartment - bedroom was very comfy and bathroom was very clean. They were very helpful with the questions we had about going around the city, and even provided us with maps and guidelines on where/how/what to find in Seoul. The kitchen was very cozy - we drank hot coffee and tea almost every night before we went to bed (it was 0-3 degrees C on average when we were there).
    The bus stop is just a 2 minute walk away and the Itaewon station around 5-7 minute walk, depending on the pace. Very convenient.
    (email hidden) to stay and we would definitely stay with them again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.
    Thank you once again for having us & we hope to stay with you again in the future!

  • I really did feel like this was my home away from home for my five night stay in Itaewon. Mely and her husband are very laid-back and pleasant people to chat with. Even though they are busy raising a new baby, they found the time to give advice and ask about our days. There was always basic breakfast food available, though it was hard to choose toast over the delicious brunch places in the neighbourhood. This place is great for people who are looking for a place to stay in a convenient location near Itaewon station. Buses to Seoul Tower stop right outside and it is within walking distance to major museums and a huge variety of restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place to independent-spirited travellers who are looking for a place where they feel like a roommate in a shared flat.

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
