Raphael was a great host. He was helpful, friendly and discrete. When I had time, we sat together for tea and laughs. Besides that he was careful to give me my own space. Perfect host.
Great host and great apartment. Location was perfect for public transit, sightseeing, and plenty of food options. Raphael was quick to respond to all of our questions. Thanks for everything!
I strongly recommend Raphael's place to everyone. I had my friend visiting from the States, and was looking for an affordable place to stay for a night so I can give a tour of Seoul to my friend. The place is clean and conviniently located. Most popular tourist spots in Seoul are close to Raphael's studio. I was able to walk to Samcheong Dong and Changdeok Palace from the studio. I did not get to meet Raphael in person, but he left a note with all the information I needed. He was easy to reach via text and was ready to help whenever. If you are two or three people looking for an affordable place close to tourist attractions, then this place is it!
Raphael is a nice host, easy communicated and very helpful. His apartment is very clean, it's well equipped and supper convenient neighborhood. We're highly recommend his apartment and I would definitely stay here again if I were to come to Korea!
Raphael was a great host! Very fast to respond to email and text. Also, very accommodating to our needs. We even met up for lunch and dinner with his wife. The neighborhood is walking distance to everything we needed, the subway (2 min walk), Isadong (10min), Hanok Village (15min) and the two shopping districts (10-15min). Neighborhood was safe and my sister and I felt very comfortable walking around at night and coming back late. The apartment was small and very efficient. Some mornings we didn't want to wake up and made breakfast in the loft.
Raphael and Lauren are great hosts! Always made us comfortable. Apt in good location, close to orange line to get to apgujeong, sinsa. Walkable to insadong, myeong dong, samcheong, tongin dong.
Description was accurate, cozy but comes with amenities listed. Well stocked kitchen with bowls, pans, forks and whatnot.
Raphael was very welcoming and left very detailed instructions. Very convenient location, close to station!
Very good eateries located just under the apartment building. Comfortable, spacious closet and bathroom.
The location is really good.. Myeong dong is only walking distance which I almost go there everyday. The stream downstairs is really nice and there's lot of resturant around the area and a 24hrs Holly's Coffee just beside the apartment. In any case that you feel hungry u can just walk to the next building for food and there's a convenience store downstairs.
Apartment is small but cosy. Raphael is really nice to help us in ordering chicken even though its really late at that time. He answer our enquiry real fast. Thanks for the nice apartment and we got to make new friends when we stay at his apartment. Till the next time!
This was my first airbnb experience, and I loved it. They welcomed us with warm heart, and we loved their place. The atmosphere was so cozy and nice, it later felt like my own place. The location is great too, near to almost all the places we wanted to visit. I wanted to cook once while my stay here, and they let me do that and also let me use some of their spices as well. I would strongly recommend this place to those who want to travel around Seoul. If you are looking for a place with great location, warm atmosphere, and friendly host, this is the place you are looking for. You would not regret staying here!
This time, was really hard to leave. Raphael & Lauren's home is more than a simple accomodation. We felt at home every minute, because of their kindness, friendship and care. We loved every moment: chatting, sharing, learning.
Anyway, the apartment is perfectly located: really close to Gyeongbokgung, Bukchon and a lot of places to see. You have everything within 2 minutes walk, and Raphael will show you anything you'll need. Seoul is worth a longer-than-a-week stop, so we'll be back asap!
Of course, thank you guys, and thank Aurore too!
BTW, where are you now? JApan?
SAFE trip and stay in touch ^^
Thank you again mate ^^
Jang/Raphael was a great guest! He was on time, hardly needed anything, and even went out of his way to always make sure that electricity was never wasted. He has a very positive character which just made him a total joy to host!
Raphael's apartment was my first time using Airbnb, and It was a great experience. Both Jang and Raphael are a very organized host. Prior to my arrival they provided very detailed instructions including how to find their locations from the airport. He thoughtfully sent them early enough in advance that I was able to access them prior to leaving home, rather than having to rely on sometimes intermittent wifi service.
As other reviewers have said, the apartment is very centrally located and overlooks Gyeongbokgung Palace.
The apartment is as is pictured in the photos “Neat and Tidy with a view of Gyeongbokgung Palace, large enough to be comfortable for two adults.
Raphael and Jang had been a great host now good friends :)
