The room had everything we needed (wifi, washing machine, microwave, water boiler, fridge etc.) and was perfectly nice and clean. The location is excellent since you have shops, resturants and bars in walking distance as well as the public transfer stations. The communication with Mike was great. So both the room and the host can be highly recommended.

TOP 3 FAVORITE THINGS 1. CONNECTED Gangnam train station is literally in front of Mike’s apartment. And it only takes 1 hour by taking the 6020 bus from Incheon airport and you are dropped at the bus stop a few steps away from the apartment. To head to the airport, the bus stop is just across the road. You also get a pocket WiFi + international plugs, charging cords etc. 2. CONVENIENT The apartment comes with a complete kitchen, fridge, cooking and utensil set and washing machine. A 7-Eleven, hair salon, pharmacy is just around the corner with tons of F&B outlets that specializes on a variety of cuisine and more. 3. CURATED Mike’s apartment is right smack in Gangnam. The apartment is carefully curated for comfort and convenience. Tasteful homely décor. Am very appreciative of the fact that his bathroom is well stocked with toothpaste, shower cream, shampoo, facial wash, shaving cream, cotton pads et al. My luggage was delayed and I do not need to purchase amenities thanks to Mike’s complete bathroom amenities. Will definitely come to stay here again. Thank you Mike!

100% satisfaction in chronological order: Location, location, location - Just off Gang Nam subway station which is the hottest spot in Seoul in terms of business, entertainment, culture, etc. You can get the most out of what you came to do and see by staying here. Easy check-in: Upon payment, received easy-to-follow self check-in process. A couple of pass codes were all I needed to move into the studio at the time of my convenience. Room readiness & amenities: Mike sure knows what travelers need. From bathroom to kitchen to living space, I had everything that I needed and beyond for my stay - I booked for a month and extended for another week in different room. Quality toiletries in the bathroom, necessary cooking ware (even salt, pepper, cooking oil, etc.), detergent for washing machine, etc. etc. WiFi egg came very handy. I always charged and carried this even though I had enough data on my phone due to the WiFi egg Mike provides had much better coverage. Super service: Mike usually responds within a couple of minutes, if not always, for any requests or questions. He really takes care of you. So much more to say, but you get the idea. Basically, you get much better place in terms of room quality, service, and convenience at a half to one-third of the price of hotel or any other type of accommodation. I can’t think of any other place than Mike’s Place when I get to come back to Seoul.

Nothing but positive things to say about both the apartment and the host, Mike. The unit is located steps from the metro and airport bus drop off/pick up spot which makes getting around very convenient. There are multiple dining/drinking options, 24 hour convenience store and Starbucks right downstairs of the building. The interior of the apartment is modern, clean and exactly as pictured. It has all the furnishings you need and although a tad tight on space, very comfortable for one or two travelers max. Mike, the host, is courteous, prompt and professional and always available should the need arise. I highly recommend this unit and host for your future travel needs in Seoul. The whole experience was fantastic from start to finish.

This was the perfect place for my stay in Seoul. The apartment was clean, stylist, comfortable and quiet. Mike was super responsive in all our communications. The location was terrific. The subway is right out the front door, coffee shops and convenient store, and others, located at the base of the building. Despite being in such a busy city, the apartment was very quiet. The shower is excellent! And since onus to have a washer/dryer unit to use. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to this amazing city.
