I would thoroughly recommend this great apartment. It was clean and very comfortable. We had great communication before arriving including a detailed manual with instructions on how to get in, use the washing machine, heating etc. The self check-in was really convenient.
Uni's Dad was available if we had any problems and he even recommended a Gamjatang restaurant a few doors down which was delicious. We were very central and it was easy to get home at night, just jump in a cab and ask for Seoul station.
The only small problem we found was the upstairs for small children, the balcony is very low and we were worried our 5 year old son might fall over it. However, this would be fine for older kids and adults.
We would definitely return next time we visit Seoul.
Kang (Uni's Father) and Uni respond quick to our queries. They are friendly and helpful! After check in, they made sure that we checked in safely and everything was in order. Unit is located in a good location, Seoul Station and within 5 minutes walk from Exit 4 of station. The apartment is exactly what you see in the pictures.
Highly recommended! Superb location, with direct airport express to Seoul Station + less than 5min walk to the apartment. Uni & her father Kang are extremely responsive & helpful before & throughout our entire trip, giving clear directions to apartment & usage of appliances...and they even bothered to check in on us during the stay to ensure everything's fine, offering to order supper for us :)) Toiletries & towels are provided, & the portable wifi egg made it very convenient for us to travel around Seoul. Would definitely come back here again! :)
Overall, i strongly recommend this apartment for those who are seeking for convenience and coziness at the same time.
1) Great location
- can arrive directly from Incheon airport which takes only around an hour by normal train and 45 mins for express train.
- Nearby attractions such as myeongdong and it is easy to go around by subway. The apartment is opposite the subway station.
- Below the building, there are 2 continent shops and just right across the road it is the lotte mart(a huge supermarket where you can get almost everything) and lotte mall where you can find lot of brands in terms of clothing, shoes, bags and even cosmetics (would recommend myeongdong for cosmetics instead because it is so much cheaper and lots of free gift).
- 2 restaurants(those I tried) below the building, can grab food easily and the food is good !
2) The Space
- Got almost everything you need for the stay. Stove, fridge, washing machine, shower gels and shampoo, fully stock toilet paper, washing powder, utensils, heat map(bed) for cold weather, hair dryer, universal adapters etc and most importantly, egg wifi.
- ps: bring your own tooth brush and tooth paste as it is not provided
Great place, great location. Walking distance to many sites and close to subway and bus to airport. Many locations to eat nearby...even in the building. Don't forget to check to basement floor B1 for the restaurants located there. Very comfortable for 4 people to stay. No problems with the WIFI, very convenient. Uni and her father was very responsive to our queries during our stay. Strongly recommend staying in Uni's apartment. I will stay again when I go back to Seoul.
It was a cozy place to stay in a good location. Uni's father was a awesome and very kind.
But apartment was bit old with very cold and drafty window that I got a bad cold right after leaving the place.
The host is very helpful and clear cut instructions was given for the check in procedures before arrival. Good service provided (eg. Late check out request was accepted as long as the room is available).
Listing description was accurate, picture shown was exactly the same as the room provided. Kitchen appliances (stove, mini microwave, electronic kettle), utensils and washing machine were provided for use. Hair dryer and mini towels were provided as well. The apartment was very clean and neat and heater mat was provided on the bed for the winter period.
Good location , diagonally opposite Lotte mart and nearby Seoul station (5 mins walking distance). Apartment located along the main road, quite safe to walk back at night times. There are mini shops and restaurants located directly below the apartment and along the main road, very convenient and accessible.
Firstly, Uni responded promptly to my messages and requests and was polite, to say the least. It was also thoughtful of her to give us her dad's number for us to contact in case she could not respond promptly due to work. For a foreigner visiting the city for the first time, it made us feel that we could have someone to turn to in case of emergency.
The location of the apartment is desirable, a short easy walk to and from Gyeongbokgung subway station and you could also walk to the Palace itself. We did not walk to the other nearby station i.e. Gwanghwamun as we find it very convenient to walk to Gyeongbokgung subway station.
Finding food was also not a problem as there are a few restaurants in the building itself.
The apartment itself is quite spacious for 2 and could fit 4-5 (there's a loft area), clean and comfortable. The bathroom is also clean and has a separate shower area.
As we were there during winter, it was such a joy to return to the well heated apartment after a long day outside. Not to mention that there's a collection of DVDs and CDs for you to enjoy if you're not minded to watch the local TV.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would opt for the same apartment when we return to Seoul.
It was a pleasant to stay in Uni apartment. The Location is excellent, transportation, shopping and restaurant all walking distance. The Apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures.
We had stay for 5 days with 5 adults, there had enough space and bed
The apartment was nearly the seuol station, and had a 24 hr Convenience Store
It was a good experience
