I booked this house for my mom and when they checked in, we found that this house doesn't have a exact window(except a really smaller one in the bathroom) so you know it's a little bit dark and the air is not so good. And my mom told me one of the beds is really dirty with lots of hairs on the sheets. And the shower has some problem with the hot water, so when you are taking a shower, you need to turn on and turn off for many times in order to keep the water becomes warm. So during the 5 days they stay here, they didn't take one comfortable shower.
Though the room is quiet and the host is nice to give us a shock as an Christmas gift
Yes. Ateliere Studio 102 has 2 big double windows and a blind curtain outside.
Your mom and dad didn't open the outside blind curtain. This studio is the
brightest studio among our studioes. It has the fresh air. That why I had been used it for my Aterliere.
We never used a old bed sheets but sometimes we found the hair sticked
the bed sheet even if we had carefully washed. Sorry for that if so.
There are a heater control box. They didn't push on the Bath button before
shower. your mom and dad suppose to call us by interphone whenever they
had the problems. I understand your parents generation did't have a chance to study English in China. I think This is communication problems.
Minerva House is conveniently located near to some of Seoul's prestigious schools, Hankuk University and Kyunghee University. Since it is located literally inside a university belt, student-friendly establishments are abundant, as well as stores that are open 24 hours which was perfect especially when we needed to grab something at wee hours of the night. Paris Baguette is just a few steps away from Minerva House which is a plus point too! The area is not too crowded though. It's kind of far from the center of the city but it didn't bothered us at all. The subway station is located a few blocks away from the house. Cabs are also abundant around the area. We didn't get the chance to meet Liza, but Sean was there to teach and show us the makings of the whole vicinity, his food recommendations etc. It was really thoughtful of him to fetch us at the station the first day we came even though it was already late in the evening. He also took time to gave us a small tour of the place as we walked our way to his place. Sean is very accommodating and he will promptly answer to your queries. When we checked out, it was raining quite hard and Sean offered to send us to the bus station. Very caring and thoughtful host indeed! We will definitely book Minerva House the next time we visit Seoul again:)
Sean is very friendly. Before we reached there, we were told by the tourist info counter that this place was really far from the city.
But it's okay. The subway is really convenient and it was about 20mins from the city only. The vicinity are closed to a few Uni and Their UNIs were really nice. Personally, i like this place better than the common tourist area.
There are lots of food around to eat and really safe even at late night.
Things there are cheaper compare to Myeongdong area.
He came to pick us up from them subway station.
He shown us what's nice to eat around the vicinity while we were on his car.
The studio room was quite comfy with private bathroom. Only things that the wall was a bit thin so we can hear ppl talking or walking at the corridor. Other than that, everything is fine.
During the stay, whenever we need some direction guide or have problem, we would text him and his response were promptly.
On the last day, he even got up really early wanted to send us to the subway station. It was 5 in the morning!
But we leave earlier than planned so we texted him to say good bye.
Great host and great place! I love korea a lot!
The room is very nice and comfortable,it is near the (website hidden) there are many food to eat near here.Sean is very nice and kind.We love the room and the people here.Thank you for your hospitality.
Staying at Minerva House was very nice and you have everything you need in the room. Sean is friendly and understanding. It was great to stay there. The house is located next to a university with a lot of shops and restaurants around but it is quiet. The subway station is close and in about 15-20 mins you are in the city centre.
The house is cosy and comfortable, very close to subway station. Sean and Liza are very kindly persons, the last day Sean helped us to transport on the metro station. It's pity that we stayed here only 3 days.
