Me and my travelmates have stayed in this beautiful loft apartment from 21 to 26 Feb 2014.
The overall experience is good , given that this is a place for us to rest and refresh after long day of shopping and sightseeing. Please be reminded that this is an apartment not a hotel so everything will be self-service. Nonetheless, communication with Wendy is very smooth, fast and effective. We communicated via emails and kakaotalk several times and Wendy always never failed to reply swiftly to clear my doubts within minutes.:)
To be more detailed, we were pleased to have Wendy's staff to fetch us from Chungmuro Station, exit 8 once we reached. Of course, please inform Wendy once you reached so she can arrange for her staff to fetch you to the apartment. A walk to the apartment will normally takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
The apartment really did look exactly as what you see in the photos (deco / beds / toilet / pantry etc) however of course you may have to manage your expectation as it is not very big as assumed in the photos.
Please also note that there is no room-service, even though this apartment is situated inside Chungmuro Apartments but not affiliated. Hence you are expected to wash your laundry if required and make your own bed.
For toiletries, I will still recommend others to bring along their toothbrushes (no toothbrush is provided) / preferred shampoo and conditioner / shower foam.
For those who are concerned about hair drying, no worries, hair dryer is provided.
The toilet is decent however it tend to have mild mouldy smell. It did not really bother us but just to take note.
Towels are provided however from the smell, you can deduce that it is reused after wash, not completely new. Hence for those who are very particular with towels, you may bring along your own just in case.
For beds, as there are 3 of us, 2 of us slept at the double bed upstairs while my other travelmate slept on the sofa bed (red). Please note that ladder steps are rather steep and slippery hence you may need to be extra careful climbing the ladder.
On the other hand, the view outside was stunning and spectacular as the apartment is located at the highest floor which is a plus point for staying :)
Also there is a convenience store downstairs if you need to buy any late night snacks. Do note that it is not 24 hours though. It closes at 1am.
To sum it up, Wendy's apartment is worth a try for travellers who does not want to stay in the hotel.
very good location when it comes to ddm/ndm/myeongdong. we got to meet wendy's husband instead and he was very kind in explaining to us the things in the hse and what to do nearby too.
This is the second time that I've stayed at one of Wendy's properties and on both occasions I had a wonderful stay. The apartment is clean and spacious and in an ideal location. Wendy and her husband are both very welcoming and helpful.
Wendy's place was conveniently located near the major shopping areas (dongdaemun) in Seoul. There were several shops and restaurants within walking distance which the host was glad to point out to us. We ended up having several nice local meals at these places. Really glad to have spent 2 nights here!
The stay at Wendy's loft apartment in Chungmuro exceeded my expectations. Check in was very easy; one of her staff met us at Chungmuro Station, which is an easy 5 minute walk from the apartment. The apartment itself is very clean and well-equipped. It also has a heated floor, which was so useful for us since the weather in Seoul was freezing when we arrived. The apartment houses four people comfortably. It is about 15 minutes walk from the Dongdaemun area (turn left) and 15 minutes from Myeongdong (turn right), so it is very convenient! The view from the apartment is also stunning. Check-out was such a simple process, which we appreciated. I would probably come back to stay in this apartment if I return to Seoul. Thank you, Wendy! :)
Beautiful and comfortable apartment that is located within 10min walk from Chungmuro station. Convenient transport to the airport. 6 of us could stay at the apartment without a problem and Wendy and her staff topped up the toiletries quite promptly when we requested for them during the stay. Thumbs up and I would stay here again if I visit Seoul! :)
This was my first experience with airbnb and Wendy made it a good one! I read her other reviews so I went in knowing what to expect -- i.e. the location being about a 5 minute walk from the station, the bed area ceiling being very low, not everything being the cleanest, etc.
Wendy's response rate was very quick! I booked it late night and the next morning, I received a call from her. She arranged for me to meet one of her staff members at the station who took me to the location and showed me how to use everything for the place. Wendy and her staff were very friendly and I would definitely stay here again!
Good location,5 mins walk from the Subway station.Just nice for 2 person,very basic necessity,easy check in and check out , or should I say is a self service type.The host can be contacted anytime with KakaoTalk when ever you need her.
Probably a total clean up on the place will be a good suggestion to the host,especially the toilet. A small little thinker for those who are tall in height , you might have to be caution not to knock you head while heading up to the deck for you bed , it's abit low in ceiling height . An extra effort on the Sun shade curtain might be needed as the direct sun from the surrounding glass might be a bit discomfort .
Conveniently located near the subway station, and easy communication with Wendy. While I booked another apartment in the same area, Wendy upgraded me the a larger apartment as the air-conditioning unit in the other apartment was not working, and this was greatly appreciated. Overall a pleasant stay.
