The room looks exactly like the picture. Cozy and nicely warm during cold months. Road leading in is a little narrow so taxis may not want to enter, a note for those with lots of luggage. Conveniently close to Itaewon main Street through the bank alleys. The air freshener in the room may not be comfortable for those with sensitive noise.
It was wonderful to stay in this resisdent. The room is clean, mordern and big! The location is amazing, just 5 ' to the shopping area and very central bus&subway connection! Definitely best service ever!!! So, I would recommend every one, who visit Seoul to stay here!!
Book Soon Kim, along with her attentive, and polite staff, was the most gracious of Hosts! They all meet you with lovely smiles!
I lived in Seoul for a year back in 2011, and know how difficult it can be finding good accommodations in the city at a reasonable price.The place was exactly as described. The Shinsa area is a perfect location in which to navigate your adventures through out the city, with only a 5 minute walk to the Shinsa subway station, and a 2 minute walk to meet any bus that you might need. There is a Kinkos a block away, coffee shops and restaurants that are all with in a short distance walk. The next time I am in Seoul I will be staying here. Thanks again Bock Soon!
Communication and directions were good. Access was convenient to the subway and the taxi driver knew how to get there late at night. The room was small, but very clean and just as advertised. Good value for the price. There are a few restaurants nearby, which was nice. Definitely would return if needed.
Our experience in Seoul was great! The apartment was really close to a subway station and the shuttle bus for the airport, so it was very convenient. It was also great to ask for recommendations for places to eat - delicious food each time!
The host was very accomodating, arranging the taxi from the airport and wait for us at 6:00 am to guide us to the house. The location was perfect, accessing to the heart of Gangnam and 5 min walking distance to subway station. Lots of restaurants around the house. The room is a bit smaller than the picture. The room is located in third floor and there is no elevator.
This is my 2nd stay and the experience is just as good as the 1st one. It's like home away from home! Thanks for the great hospitality. Location is just awesome ;)
What a wonderful place and bargain/ the family is super sweet!
Mrs. Kim and her family were so kind to me. When I arrived, Mrs. Kim and her husband waited for me at the front entrance. I settled into the new living space very quickly. I booked a single bedroom for my two weeks stay and I’m more than satisfied with my visit. The room is small but perfect for one single person. There are toilet, shower, and refrigerator in the room so you don’t have to leave the comfort of your room. The room is clean and comfy. There is a kitchen on the second floor for community use. Plus, Ephphatha Residence located in a safe environment of Sinsa and everything you needs is right in front of you. Citi Bank is right in front of the residence and it’s simple to withdraw money out from the ATM. There are many restaurants around the neighbors with affordable price. Plus, there is a small grocery store in the neighborhood when you need to purchase simple items. The subway station is three minutes walk from the apartment. If you can read and understand Seoul Subway system, you will save a lot of money and travel to a lot of destination. Note, go to App Store or Playstore and type in Seoul Subway or Jihachul map and download the APP. But if you don’t want to deal with subway headache then simply take a taxi. I recommend using orange or gray taxi as they are cheaper than the black taxi. Don’t worry, taxi here are very cheap. Thank you, Mrs. Kim for my wonderful stay. I’ll be back in the future!
A wonderful stay! The owners are really really friendly and helpful, making me feel very welcome and comfortable staying with them. The location of the apartment is perfect, right in-between Sinsa and Nonhyeon station, making everywhere very accessible and it also has the airport bus stop right in front at the main road. Highly recommended for those who wish to explore Gangnam.
