아펠바움 게스트하우스 완전 강추합니다
처음에 게스트하우스 인지 모르고 예약을 하였는데 막상 가서 직접 이용해보니 사장님도 너무 친절하시고 이용하는 고객이 불편함이 없도록 세심하게 챙겨주시는 모습이 정말 좋았습니다! 방 마다 잠금장치가 되어있어 안전하게 믿고 이용할 수 있었습니다. 방도 굉장히 깔끔했고 침대가 너무 푹신하고 좋아서 잠도 잘 잤구요 수건까지 넉넉하게 챙겨 주셔서 좋았습니다. 위치도 아주 적당한 곳에 있어 찾아가기 어렵지 않았습니다 그래도 네이버지도에 같은 곳에 상호명 등록해주시면 더 빠르게 찾아갈 수 있을꺼 같아요!! 방마다 방음이 잘 되는지 너무 조용하게 이용할 수 있었어요 되려 저희가 시끄러워 민폐가 될까 걱정이 될정도로요 시설들도 전부 깨끗하고 깔끔하기 때문에 저렴한 가격에 너무 잘 이용하고 돌아왔습니다 앞으로도 게스트하우스에 많은 손님들이 찾아오셨으면 좋겠어요 :-)
