Nice to meet you.
I live in Seoul, Korea.
There are five members in my family.
Welcome to Seoul and Enjoy your experience here.
The reservation was canceled 37 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I stayed in Sarah's apartment for 1 month and it was fantastic. I never write reviews but this place was so wonderful that I feel I need to. These are some of the reasons why I would totally recommend this place to you:
- Cleanliness: I have never seen a place to clean before, it looked brand new. You can tell they take good care of the place.
- Bathroom: The bathroom is the best you will find in any accommodation in Korea bar a 5-star hotel. It is was new, big and very clean.
- Provisions: Sarah provides everything for your stay. This includes shampoo, conditioner, soap, dishwashing liquid, washing powder, eating utensils, cooking instruments, tea, coffee - everything !
- Internet: The internet was fast and it never cut out once in the whole month I was living there
- Location: It is very accessible by both bus and subway. The subway is about a 5~10min walk away and it's just 1 straight line the whole way.
- Building: The building was very new, modern, safe and quiet. Especially because there were a lot of christian organisations working in that building it was a very nice and quiet place.
- Instructions: Sarah left instructions for everything! It was very helpful. She was also very easily contactable and replied quickly to all questions.
- Price: Seriously, compared to other places the value you get for this place is FANTASTIC. It will be hard to find something as good as this.
So if you are wondering whether you should stay here or not, I really recommend you to, you won't regret it!
Response from Sarah:
I've read your positive review.
Please a good life.
Sorry for the late review. I and my husband stayed at Sarah's apartment for 4 nights. It is actually a great location, but on the 1st day we passed the building and got lost. Overall, the apartment is very clean, it is exactly what the pictures shown. It is about 10 minutes walk from the subway. Sarah provided everything in the room so you don't need to worry about it. The wifi speed is fast. We can easily find good restaurant around the area. There is only one which is not good enough which the water pressure of the shower was very weak. If Sarah can fix it, it will be prefect. This is a good place to stay, I would recommend to everyone.
It was a great experience living in seoul with an accessible location like this apartment. The area has lots of restaurant and coffee shops. The apartment has provided everything from stove to spoon, cooking equipments. It is very convenient when you feel like Korean noodle in the middle of the night.
사장님 부부께 감사드립니다. 지내는 동안 세심하게 잘챙겨주시고 먹을것도 많이 주시고 너무 편하게 지내다 갑니다~ 모든게 질 갖추어져 있어 정말 몸만들어가도 불편할게 없어 참 좋네요- 모텔이나 일반 게스트하우스가시는것 보다 백배 낫습니다~ 제 중국인여자친구가 한국올때마다 여기로 오겠데요 ㅎ 다음에 또 찾아뵙겠습니다.
Hi Sarah....Sorry for late review....was busy working n stuff.....well I have a good experiences staying at Sarah's place..everything is nice and tidy really makes me feel very home and cozy....only alittle difficult to find the place (as too many small lane not sure which one) but direction which Sarah given was very clear hubby manage to find it. And the most delight things is that I have a problem with the heater on e first night I have msg Sarah but unfortunately my phone spoil and couldn't reply Sarah msg next day morning Sarah's hubby came to our doorsteps to check is everything is alright (I really feel they are very responsible)....but alittle not comfortable is the toilet as is winter time inside the shower room is very cold (not sure can any heater be install inside it will add an additional point to the stayer on winter time). If you are staying there walking to Jongno-5ga will be nearer but also depend which direction you are heading to..... Overall I'm a very satisfy w my stay at Sarah's aptment....If I have a chance to go back Korea definitely I will go back to Sarah's aptment to stay.
Thank you Sarah for your review for me too....Thanks I'm back well and yes I'm back to my daily working life and HOT Singapore LOL...
Once again thank you so much.
My partner and I had stayed at Sarah's apartment for 5 nights and we loved it! Although we did not meet Sarah in person, we were aided by her husband, who was extremely kind and nice. He even offered to drive us to the airport when we were leaving. He speaks English well so we were able to communicate with not much problem.
The room was cosy for winter, self-sufficient and beautiful. Made us feel at home. It's well equipped with washing machine, stoves with pots and pans so we were able to cook some instant noodles at night for supper when we were hungry. There are a few 24 hrs minimarts around the place within a minute walk, and also great cafés near the place. Lotte world theme park is also within walking distance if you wish to visit it. Although Jamsil is a little far from the other popular tourist places, the subway is about 8 minutes walk from the guesthouse, and can be easily transferred to other subway lines.
We were thankful that they were willing to wait for us to pass us the key as we only reached there 12.30am in the middle of the night, and grateful that they did not reprimand us when we lost the key to the apartment but instead, generously gave us the spare key.
Overall I would recommend this guesthouse if you wish to have a comfortable and safe place to stay in Korea! Thank you so much to Sarah and husband and sorry for the trouble caused. If we have the chance, we will definitely visit them again.
Sarah and her husband were very friendly and helpful. They were easy to liaise with and accommodated to our requests readily. Their place was clean and very well equipped. It had everything we needed. Thanks for making our stay a comfortable one! :)
My comment is a little bit late, but I stayed at Sarah's place in december 2013, for 9 days.
I had the pleasure to meet Sarah and her family, and everybody was very kind. I really had a warm welcome.
We met at Jamsil Station, and I made a mistake and wasn't waiting at the good place but they waited and looked for me.
They also gave me choco pie, fruits and noodles.
The place is really lovely !!! I loved it and felt really at ease.
The room is like the photo, and you have everything you need. Very near all commodities and I really enjoyed the walk to the station with the two lakes, very beautiful and refreshing.
I could use Internet in the room for my work, very convenient.
It was a short stay, but I had a wonderful time and recommand this room to everyone.
If I have the chance to go back to Seoul, I'll go back to Sarah's place without any hesitation.
Loved Sarah's apartment! The location is good as there were many eateries and attractions nearby. The metro line is just down the corner, very convenient. She provided us with a bottle of drinking water, sufficient cutleries, instant coffee and choco pie! Both Sarah and her husband were very helpful and prompt in replying to our queries. Had a great time there. Will definitely retun next time :)
