  • Ken was a very thoughtful host. He greeted our family at the bus stop, showed us how everything works in the apartment & gave us an overview of places we were interested in visiting in Seoul. He even set up our DMZ tour and gave us terrific restaurant recommendations! The place itself was as described: clean and in a good location. The apartment along with Ken's personal touch makes this airbnb listing an excellent choice!

  • Our host ken was very delightful person, he took care alot of things for us, from finding money exchange stalls to tickets for theme parks and lots more. He made our trip very helpful with his knowledge in korea. Guided us well. His apartment was pleasant and very neat. The place was very good and the area we stayed in was awesome as all the things we needed were very near. I recommend ken's place anytime. I would stay there once again if im visiting korea next time.

  • Ken is a really nice person and perfect host. He guided us to walk around times square and introduced some delicious food for us. He also shared Korean culture with us.For the apartment,it is located opposite of the times square and connected with Yeungdeungpo underground market. It's very convenient and great place for shopping and dinning. The interiors of the apartment is modern and cozy feeling, it provides everything you need.I will definitely stay here again next time. Strongly recommend!!!

  • Ken is a perfect host with a perfect place! Clean, well designed and very efficient use of space. Very fast WiFi and also many TV channels with a couple in English and Mandarin so you will be entertained even back in your room. The apartment is close to many local eateries and shopping malls. 10mins walk to the subway station through an underground shopping mall so you can walk and shop at the same time! I will definitely stay here again when i visit Seoul next time!

  • Thumbs up for Ken and his neat apartment which is located in a really convenient neighborhood, where access to the Yeungdeungpo metro (line 1) is just a 5 minutes' walk away and Times Square is directly across the street! Also, transfers to the other lines such as 2, 4 and 5 are really easy.

    On his last business trip to Singapore in Feb 2014, Ken took the trouble to meet my friends and I (despite his hectic schedule) and provided us his views on places of interest and restaurants. We found his tips to be very helpful. When we were in Seoul, Ken helped with logistics such as getting a jumbo taxi from the airport, getting our T-money cards, booking tickets to the trick-eye museum and the Han river cruise and also in lugging our luggage and boxes to the airport limo bus stop. We appreciate Ken's service orientation and his really prompt response at all times!

    I would definitely recommend Ken's apartment to anyone who will be visiting Seoul! His is an awesome host!

  • Great location, right in front of Times Square. Also, it was very convenient that they have CU( 24hours-open convenience store) in the same building. Room was cozy and clean. I've stayed in Seoul so many times but while I was staying their room, I wished so many times I could have lived there. haha

    Thank you so much Ken, for letting us stay in such a nice room ^^ Hope to see you again. And sorry for taking such a long time to leave this comment. Wish you all the best. 감사합니다.

    日本のユーザーさんへ。
    ゲストハウスの主人は英語が堪能で返信も早いのですぐに手続きが進みました。永登浦エリアは初めての韓国旅行にはややディープに感じるかもしれませんが、空港鉄道が通っている弘大まで10-15分圏内なうえ、Times Squareには明洞の通りにあるようなコスメショップ、カフェ、書店、SPAブランド、さらにスーパーまで入っているので便利です。さらに、駅からは永登浦から永登浦地下商店街にも直結。ここはソウルの地下商店街の中でもプチプラなアイテムが多く、革製品などはありませんが衣類や靴は東大門級にお得です。ウィークリーマンションのような感じなのでホストとはそこまで交流は生まれない可能性もありますが、気楽に旅したい人にはとっても便利なはず。私たちは3人で泊まりましたが、大きなスーツケースを広げるスペースはないので、長期滞在の方などはその点をご注意ください。

  • Ken met us at the airport bus stop despite waiting for some time for us. Ken immediately started to tell us about the neighborhood, and gave us first-timers, tips on where to go, the transportation system etc. He even escorted my daughter to the subway station for her day trip to Daejeon! The apartment was small but cozy, location is PERFECT across the mall, accessible to many food places, the transport system. Modern apartment with an old world neighborhood! Thank you Ken and Jen for a wonderful experience! See you again soon!

    March 2014
  • Ken met us at the metro station. A short walk later we were at a clean, comfortable, and modern apartment. It was warm, bright, and sunny, just across the road from local attractions.

    Ken was an extremely hospitable host, providing us with rail cards to top up, extra towels, and friendly local knowledge on food and amenities. When we arrived Ken sat us down and have us lots of info on sights an attractions and answered all our questions about Korea.

    I had a flu when I got to the apartment. Ken very kindly bought cold and flu medication from a local chemist for me and refused to take extra money for the expense he incurred.

    Recommended modern apartment living in Seoul with a fantastic host!

  • We have enjoyed our stay at Ken and Jen's listing. Since it's peak season,we booked it last minute and stayed a few days because other days of the listing are fully booked. It was my family's first Airbnb experience and we were blessed to have Ken as our host.
    Amazing listing
    - Times Square mall is across the street
    - many shops were open till late night
    - listing has all the basics:ref,vacuum cleaner,heater,TV,washing machine,microwave and electric pot
    - you have a wonderful view of the street yet the neighborhood is quiet at night even if it's in a prime location
    - place is safe and secure and unit is very clean
    - unit is just enough for our family and a good place to rest
    - comfy bed and super fast internet

    Awesome Host
    - very prompt in communications even before booking
    - they were very caring and welcoming hosts
    - Ken greeted us at the doorstep of building
    - he helped us so much in arranging transportation and gave us a briefing of the place when we checked in.
    - translations and knowing the city and facts about Korea are essential and Ken went over and beyond to help us
    - he knew we had a baby and he was very kind to prepare baby biscuits,milk and extra bed for baby

    He has exceeded our expectation of staying in Korea and went over and beyond in hosting us in their private unit. Such an amazing hospitality and personality!! Thanks a lot Ken and Jen for our wonderful first time in Korea. Both listing and Host are 7 stars rating!!

  • I just get back from my two weeks trip to Seoul and Tokyo, and this is my first time for both the cities, and using airbnb. I am in love with Seoul, it is the cleanest country i've ever been in my entire life, and believe me, i've been to quite some places. As for Ken and Jen, they are very very helpful. They always reply my message, latest within a day or two, and most of the times, immediately!

    On our first day of arrival, we used the Airport bus that are bound between Incheon, Gimpo and Times Square. Times Square is exactly across the building apartment. Once we got to the bus stop, Ken has already waited for us. He helped with our luggage, and carefully explains everything we need to know about the apartment and the surrounding areas.

    The apartment was very clean, and warm (winter in seoul is feisty). However, coming from Jakarta, Indonesia, we are not used to the size of apartments in cities like Seoul, Tokyo, or Hongkong, so we were a bit surprise, but completely understand. Forgot to mention that we consists of 5 adults. And we fit just nice :) My dad is claustrophobic but he feels completely fine so this means a lot!

    Ken would come everyday to help us with our trash, and one time he drops a simple yet very nice gift for us - a starbucks mug of Seoul. (Thank you very much ^^)

    There was one time when we thought the heater was not working, we text ken late at night hoping he'll drop by the next day. He did! very early the next day! but thank God, the there was nothing wrong with the heater, we just didnt know how to use it well since everything is in Korean.

    The day we left for Tokyo, our flight was really early. We had to leave latest by 6AM. Ken promised to meet us at 5:30. He did!!! He helped checking the bus timetable for the airport, helped with the luggage, and run with us as we are almost late for the bus.

    To summarize it all, it was a great great great experience ^^ Thank you Ken and Jen :)
