Few people keep asking about my accommodation in Seoul during the vacation there.
So I think I'll write about the guesthouse's review first.
During the 5 days 4 nights in seoul, we stayed in Namsan Guesthouse.
Got to know about this guesthouse through 'googling'. heheh.
The hunting for a guesthouse in seoul had started since last year, which is few months after we booked the flight tickets. *we booked the tickets approx 1 year before departure date -.-"*
semangat gila eh? serious gigih google sana google sini, and lastly we agreed to stay here.
the location is the main plus points for this guesthouse.
it's located near to myeongdong subway station and just few minutes walk to myeongdong shopping street woot!~~
and yes, we actually went to this shopping street whenever we wanted to.
Namsan Guesthouse is separated into 3 locations but they are still in the same area.
- The original namsan guesthouse (namsan 1) is located a bit further up the hill.
- Then namsan 2 which is the one that we stayed in
- and namsan 3 which is the newest building of namsan guesthouse.
Personally, I love the design and the decoration of namsan 2.
simple & chilling.
-soft-board inside the guesthouse which decorated with pictures and notes left by the guests-
We booked 2 rooms, Namsan 2 twin A & Namsan 2 VIP 3.
me and zet took twin A room so the other 2 guys took the vip3 room.
And all the VIP rooms is located in separate buildings from the other rooms in Namsan 2.
However both rooms that we booked got a same price, 55,000 won per night (around RM 154)
Basically the room size is just nice for 2 person.
clean, simple, and it's attached with flat tv.
The toilet is clean too, and all the basics toiletries (shower foam, shampoo, toothpaste) & towels are provided.
-Namsan 2 Twin A room view from the door
-we choose double decker bed-
breakfast is also provided everyday.
I'm not sure what they served because most of the times we're having breakfast outside or if not,we just ate from the packages that we brought from malaysia. but coffee is available all the time in the pantry. love it! hehee.
oh and not forgotten, free wifi is also available for the guests.
so overall, it was a nice stay in Namsan Guesthouse
for me, i dont really need a high class accomodation for a vacation like this, where we're not spending most of our daytimes in the room.
but the room must be comfortable so that i can rest to the fullest at nights.
tapi kalau budget besar ke, honeymoon ke, memang stay hotel besar la kann.
How to get here from Incheon airport by Subway
Take AREX (airport railway line) from incheon airport straight to Seoul station.
From seoul station, take subway line 4 straight to myeongdong station and get out from exit 3.
look for pacific hotel and walk towards the hotel.
then take the right side of the road from the hotel. namsan guesthouse will be at your left. you will see namsan 3 first before u arrive at namsan 2.
yes, this is the cheapest way, look simple yet the journey took like 1 hr and 15 minutes. hahahaha but who cares? =p
For further information, u can go to their official website.
