The neighbourhood was great as it was close to the shopping street, Insa-dong and the palaces which are always a must-see. Felt very welcome and enjoyed my stay at Lavinia!
너무 친절하셔서 좋았어요!! 방도 따뜻하고 깔끔했고요!!! 다음에도 들리고 싶은 방이었어요~~
A little difficult to find, but with some help we found the hotel. IT is very compact, but enough for somewhere to sleep while exploring the city of Seoul. Very good location, high speed internet, hot showers and extremely clean. The breakfast is very simple but for the price I did not expect much more. The girls behind reception are all very helpful providing clean towels on demands and they will book taxis / sort out any trips you want to go on.
The room is very cozy and comfortable. The room seen in the photos provided are also very accurate. However, it will be good to have a kettle in every room. The location is also very convenient as it is place at the heart of Seoul as it is near to many places of interests. Vicky was a very friendly and helpful host. She bought a new iron board and iron for us to get our clothes iron neatly. Overall, the stay at Lavinia was very fruitful.
Lavinia provided us with comfortable accommodation with sufficient privacy. The bedding (without sheets though with only bed linings), aircon, tv, fridge, washing machines are pretty decent. But what really set the place apart from the rest was Vicky's services.
She was professional and able empathise with the needs of travellers, recommending places to go and the most convenient ways around. She is also based in the venue and that means you will have little problem seeking help should you require it! Pleasant place to be in :)
The room is clean and neat with free wifi. Good location that near the station, palace and Insadong. The price is unbeatable and worth to stay. :)
Lavinia is in a very good location, especially for those travelers who wish to visit Seoul's historic attractions. It is close to both, the Anguk and the Jongro-3-ga subway stations. Insadong and Jong-ro are just a short walk away, where many restaurants and shops can be found.
The room was very nice. Clean and modern. The photos posted here in Airbnb are accurate. It was spacious for the two of us. It even had a private bathroom (not all guest houses have such a nice feature). The free breakfast (cereal, milk, juice, bananas) was good and just appropriate to start the day.
Vicky is a very nice and kind host. She really tries to help in any way she can. She is cheerful and attentive. Definitely someone who makes everyone comfortable.
Overall, our experience at Lavinia was extremely positive. We really liked it and will definitely return in the future. We strongly recommend it.
I stayed at Lavinia with my husband for 7 nights and had a pleasant experience. Lavinia is kept very clean, free soap/shampoo, free wifi, and two very small 'towels'. (If you're expecting typical bath towels, you may want to bring your own.) Vicky was extremely responsive and even stayed up an extra hour to let us into our room (due to our flight being delayed, as we arrived 1+ hr after check-in time). The bathroom was very clean and has a shower head that sprays water into the entire bathroom area where you would normally stand to brush your teeth/use toilet. It took a bit getting used to, but overall, was very clean (the entire bathroom is waterproof and has a single drain). The bed was a bit firm, but was comfortable. The most attractive thing about Lavinia is it's location. It is well situated near the Jongno railyway station and has access to plenty of restaurant/bar options. Yet, it was tucked in a quiet street so getting rest was easy. One thing that could be improved was the window in the room didn't have any curtains, so the street-lighting shined through the windows all night long. Though, for the price we paid (~$55/night) we weren't complaining. Free wifi, free (toast/cereal/banana) breakfast and excellent service by Vicky and her mother with every question we had. If you're looking for a bargain place to stay that's clean, quiet and comfortable, this is it. It doesn't have typical hotel amenities, but all the essentials are there. Definitely recommend this place and give it a shot if you're in Seoul for less than a week.
The room was very pretty and comfortable. The location of the bnb was very accessible to subway and airport bus busstop. It was a bit inconvenient that no drinking water was provided by the bnb although a kettle was provided in the common room. in contrast to other places we stayed in korea. Overall, we had a great stay as the staff was very helpful.
I can only confirm what others have already written, it's a hassle free place, well located, the rooms are small but clean and comfy, and the owner, Vicky, is very helpful. To make it short, I will be back and yes, I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to friends.
