Interaction with Guests
I do love to hang out with my guests, especially if they are interested in my personal career, what am I doing now, and our city, our culture, our country.
Any topic related to China, Cooking, Restaurants, Coffees, Travels, Entrepreneurs, Artists make me excited to talk about.
My place is prime for a visit to Myeongdong, Dondaemoon, Gangnam, Hongdae, Sinchon, Ewha, Jamsil, COEX, anywhere on metro line 2 & 9. It has easy access to public transit, I can tell it takes literally 1 minute the building entrance to the metro station. With airport bus #6008, you can easily come from both ICN and GMP airport to my place.
Even though you haven't heard about this area, I have hosted 200+ guests in this area and there were lots of guests satisfied with both location and neighborhood. Restaurants are plentiful and beautiful Seonyudo Park is in walking distance, Yeouido Park for bike riding & having chicken and canned beer picnic is 10 minutes away with metro. There are 2 starbucks in our neighborhood. But I hope you to choose stay at Zoo coffee to work at midnight, Cafe bene to try Korean ice flake, have a brunch at Hollys coffee looking through people working at Samsung.
You may run into vendors selling fresh fruits on the street, and students wearing uniforms and crossing the streets, it will make you feel you are in Seoul, not in a touristic place full of foreigners.
Other Things to Note
I rent a mobile wifi device : 5,000KRW per day
I am looking forward to having you here! There are only a few things to know before you come-
- Our building is a no smoking, no pets building and no roof access.
- As I do care a lot about the earth, I try to make it easy to recycle & compost when possible, and appreciate conserving by turning off lights, water & heater when you are not using them.
After a slight mix up at the start, the apartment on the 20th floor was provided.
Wow, what a beautiful apartment & stunning view of the Han River.
I had a very enjoyable time here & the apartment is within 30 minutes of all main attractions & restaurant areas.
Very good subway system is within 5 minutes walk and local convenience stores are aplenty.
Layla responded in a timely manner to all my enquiries & I would definitely recommend Layla as a host.
The apartment is terrific! I'm fascinating at the view outside the window! Layla prepared everything a travel may need, including shampoo, body wash, hair drier, and so on. The tiny kitchen is also very convenient. In one word, I just felt like at home during my staying there.
The listing and descriptions of Layla's place is accurate and the view of the water and mountains in the distance made waking up a pleasure. It was still cold when we stayed there so the heating was adequate.
The location is fantastic for getting around Seoul and the neighbourhood felt very safe and had dining places, cafes and convenience stores all around.
It was a pleasant and satisfactory stay!
3/23일부터 3박4일로 너무 잘 이용했습니다~제가 이런저런 일을 처리하고 캐나다로 바로돌아오는 바람에 이제서야 후기를 올리게 됬네요~
체크인하던날 문제가 있어서 연락드렸더니 바로 시정해주셔서 덕분에 편안하게 이용할수있었습니다 지리적으로도 지하철과 가까워 편리하고 건물에 약국과 편의점이있어 다음 기회가 된다면 다시 이용하고 싶네요!! 감사했습니다 ^^
The only thing disappointed was layla sent me the wrong room number in the email, so i spent a long time to find the key, and layla was not responding when i sent her msg through airbnb at the time, i had to borrow phone to call her (the guard man in the building was not that helpful to borrow me the phone). I requested an extra bed but layla put in the wrong room again. Finally all were fixed. Other things in the apartment were fine, and its a good location with good view.

If you would stay in my apartment, I will be happy to invite you to my kitchen and offer my hearty food and have some conversation about Seoul, your trips, my trips, and food, extra.

I love talking to new people and sharing ideas of philosophy, arts, economy, and experiences. It couldn't be better that I could have more people and learn more things I don't have from them. And of course, I am taking it as my affair to let my guests have remarkable memories in Seoul.
