No idea where to start with Mario and his Wife. Mario is probably honestly the best guy in all of Korea. He went way beyond the call of just being a host. On my business trip there, he connected me with some extremely valuable contacts that will be established for a long time to come. Highly Highly Recommend his place! Including how active the location is. Full of great activities and a cool young environment. Good luck to their upcoming baby!!
We stayed for 10 days at Mario's. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the apartment is in a fantastic location just a short stroll away from not only the subway station but also an endless array of boutiques, cafes, restaurants, bars and quirky little shops. Mario and Alice were both really nice and helpful during our stay, and it was a shame we didn't get to spend more time chatting or hanging out. The apartment itself is bright, sunny, tidy and the room is equipped with everything a traveller may need. We really enjoyed our stay!
I really enjoyed my stay at Mario's place! The place is in Hongdae, which is a hip place where a lot of young people hang out. The apartment itself is on a quiet and residential street, it's very clean and spacious. Its also only a 5-8 minute walk from the metro station, and mario gave me very detailed directions so it was very easy for me to find and enter the apartment. I had many good conversations with Mario and Alice and they are very cordial and respectful. Definitely recommend this place!
I've stayed at Mario and Alice's apartment for about a week. The location was just perfect, only a few steps away from the coffee shops, restaurants, bars etc...very convienient for shopping and very close to the subway station, for me it was at the best part of Hongdae, The room was big and overall they have a really lovely and clean house and they are really chill people! I enjoyed my stay very much...! and the most important part for me is that I felt really safe as a solo female, both in the apartment & in the neighbourhood ~
So, Highly recommended!!
Mario and Alice were great hosts! Very welcoming and relaxed. They have a very nice home in central Hongdae close to some very cool cafes, shops and restaurants. I spent about 75% of my time in Hongdae so it was very convenient staying there. The private room was comfortable and they had everything you need. Kitchen, bathroom, laundry, etc. I was pretty busy doing my own thing but I would totally recommend Mario and Alice if you are looking for a quiet place to stay in Hongdae with some down to earth people. Thanks guys!
Mario has a really spacious and adorable apartment in the BEST place to stay in Seoul.
Mario and his beautiful wife Alice are super great hosts who make you feel comfortable and relaxed and are always ready to point you in the right direction. Mario even walked us right to a great noodle place on his way to work. We wish we had more opportunities to chat and hang out with them but we were pretty busy during our stay so its our own fault we missed out on their company!
The location is seriously perfect. Literally seconds away from a huge amount of clubs, bars, restaurants and adorable cafes in Hongdae. There is so much variety in places to eat, drink and hang out that you will definitely have trouble picking a favourite! The room is big, clean, quiet and comfortable - just right after a long day trekking around. The shower is really nice too! The train station is super convenient as well, all up making Marios place absolutely the best place to stay!! Highly recommended!!
I really enjoyed staying at Mario's apartment. He is in a dynamite location with lots of coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. For such a hip neighborhood there are surprisingly few foreigners, so if you are looking to understand what it is like to live in Seoul as a local this is the place to be. You will have access to the subway lines and it is very easy to go from ICN or GMP to his apartment. I would definitely recommend my friends to stay there any time.
The reservation was canceled 12 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Mario, Alice and Nate were very friendly, and even shared some champagne with us to celebrate the new year. The place is not that near the station, though, and you'd have to drag your luggage up a few flights of stairs. But overall, this was a great place to stay.
He stayed in my flat for 5 days about a conference.We couldn't spend too much time each other but he is a nice person .
Mario and his wife Alice are the sweetest couple ever.
They are very respectful, polite, educated and I had great conversations with them. I would have them over anytime. :)
He is an excellent host. He keeps the living arrangements very clean & tidy. He takes time out of his busy schedule to have dinner with you. He also recommended some great local attractions to visit. I highly recommend this person!
