Thank you Ms. Lee!
Me and my sister had an amazing stay here during our first few days in Seoul! Ms. Lee and her daughter were such amazing hosts. They went above and beyond the call of duty and treated us more like family than guests. It was honestly heartbreaking when we had to leave. They were just that awesome! The guesthouse is ideally located. Close to the main road but tucked away in a quiet street. It is only a two minute walk from Sinchon station with lots of restaurants and shopping. The guesthouse itself is a traditional Hanok home with all your necessary amenities. We stayed at seperate room and it was enough space for the two of us. Since it’s a traditional home the place doesn’t have central heating for the winter but the room is well equipped with floor heating and bed warmers so you won’t get cold. Also, the bathrooms are outside so you will have to brave the cold when you need to take a shower. But, it wasn’t really an issue as the bathrooms are heated and the steam will warm up the space in no time. Lastly, the walls are paper thin but hey, if your in Korea you’ll mostly be exploring anyways and it’s all part of the experience of living in a traditional home. And more than anything, the hospitality was just perfect! Ms. Lee with her daughter helped us out so much, since it was our first time in Korea. They even checked up on us even after we checked out and exploring other parts of Korea. I highly recommend especially for newbie travelers

6/10 Good

Very basic, friendly staff.
I had the only private room and stayed 3 nights. The room is smaller than the size of a double bed. It has no ventilation once you close the door. The window does not open and is covered with insulation, so no outside light. It has ondol heating. The room itself is in an independant building of its own, standing in an inner courtyard, where are situated other small constructions: dorm rooms, a basic kitchen and 2 complete bathrooms. Mosquitoes would enter the room as I went in and out. Other patrons were not so respectful of the quiet hours after 22::00 and the noise carries. The street is pretty quiet but the neighborhood lively with the University crowd, restaurants, cafés, shopping, Sinchon subway station. Overall, it felt a bit like camping, and I was quite at ease in my little nest.

8/10 Very good

I had a very short trip 2 nights trip to Seoul and I was looking for a place to stay that was more on the budgeted side. ICOS guesthouse was very welcoming and convenient, not to mention kept me warm during the cold winter nights. I liked how it was specifically for women so it gave me a ressurance because I was by myself. I would stay again during my next visit to Seoul.

4/10 Fair

I had a single bedroom with the traditional futon mattress. The weather was madly cold (sub-zero degree), but the heated floor made it all nice and toasty in the room. However, it is one thing to have heated floor, but another to try sleeping on one. The thin futon mattress diffused the heat so poorly, you have to have keep turning and tossing or risk getting toasted! I could hardly sleep. The walls and door were so thin, I could hear everything that was going on around me. And there was this constant beeping from the security system, it irritated the hell out of me when I was already having a hard time trying to get to sleep on the extremely hot mattress.. The toilet and bath come together, and it is really spacious, a little too spacious for good because the heater will take forever to warm up the space and the water from the tap also took a while to heat up.
