It was our 2nd stay in IB Ville (our previous stay was in Dec 2011), and we were a little saddened that the rooms had not been well maintained over the years. Our room 207 looked dated, and the quilt was not very clean. It triggered a bad episode of eczema for me, and it was distressing to say the...

I had stayed here for 3 different trips. I like it so much as it very close to myeongdong station and within a walking distance to namsan cable car and namdaemun market. A lot of convenient store, restaurant and cafe along the way. The room is clean cozy and provided with all the basic needs.

We scrambled to look for accomodation 4 days before arriving in Seoul as we ran into some issues with our Airbnb apartment. Read the mixed reviews on tripadvisor but decided choosers can't be pickers so booked this place and hoped for the best. No regrets staying here as you are at the footstep of lots of food and subway station...

The Guesthouse is 10 minutes away from the subway (Myeongdong Station Exit 3). 15 minutes walking to Mt. Namsan. You can find restaurants, convinient store and money exchange (with good exchange rate compare to the one in the airport) in the same area. The room is clean and cozy not to mention the excellent WiFi connection. Basic needs were provided...

Spent 4 nights over there, nothing special to highlight of the accommodation as I was mainly outdoors during my trip. Loved the fast wifi and location. Requires some uphill climbing if you are alighting from MD subway, good thing is if you wanna visit Namsan then it's just nearby

Dear Guest, We have started responding to the reviews on TripAdvisor and I just wanted to give you an update although it's been a year since your review. We are sorry if you felt that the pictures were misleading and that they looked different in real. We have recently taken new pictures(no re-touching at all) and updated to our website...

Stayed at this guesthouse for about a week.The room is simple and nice, equipped with most of the usual amenities. The services are good. They provide breakfast of bread, butter, and jam. Hot/Cold water dispenser, toast and microwave ovens are available in the lobby 24/7. The price is considerably cheap. Although you might not want to expect it to be...

Given the price that I've paid, I think that they have provided services which are FAR better than I've expected. This was my second stay there! It's a cozy guest house. Although they don't have a big or decent lobby which I don't mind since we don't really spend time there as well. The breakfast area is a bit squeezy,...

Learned about this place from a colleague. Did some research and made a reservation via email. Staff could communicate well in English and responds fast. Booking and payment process was no feat. We spent 5 nights at this little guest house in early october. For 5 pax, we only spent SGD$800. That works out to about SGD$160 per person for...

Location is good, near Myeongdong. Easy access to Incheon Airport. And it's also good for people which like shopping. It's very close to N tower. Room is small but comfortable. Free wifi. Staff are nice although no one answered the door when we arrived until waiting for a few minutes.
