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.

역과 편의시설이 숙소 가까운 곳에 위치하고 있다는 점이 정말 큰 메리트였습니다. 제가 질문도 많이 했는데 호스트님이 친절하게 답해주셔서 너무 감사했구요:) 게다가 깨끗하고 깔끔한 방과 한강이 보이는 전망까지~! 도심에서의 휴식이 정말 꿀같았어요^^ 좋은 방에서 잘 쉬었습니다! 다음에 또 이용하고 싶어요~
This was my first time with airbnb and Layla made it so much easier for me. She was prompt and very helpful. Room was exactly as shown, clean and secure. I had an amazing time thanks to her. Not only I know where to stay in Seoul from now on but I also I know I have a friend for life time!
Layla was extremely friendly and responded to any queries swiftly. The apartment is very safe as they require an access card to enter the building and there is always a security guard at the lobby. It is also extremely clean, modern and welcoming and all necessities were already provided. If we needed anything, the convenience store was right downstairs. The nearest train station (just a two minute walk away) lies on two subway lines which makes it really convenient to get around Seoul, and the view of the Hangang is really pretty! There are also many food and cafe options available around even late at night. We really enjoyed our stay at Layla's apartment and it was a very comfortable and lovely experience.
Мы с женой остановились в этой квартире после возвращения с острова Чеджу. К сожалению, квартира не соответствовала нашим ожиданиям. Иностранцу здесь можно остановиться на один день, чтобы сделать селфи с видом на речку.
Если вы планируете готовить себе еду, даже самую обычную, или завтрак, то лучше искать другую квартиру.
Район станции метро Dangsan так же нам не понравился. Это близко к метро и это единственный плюс.
Мы сожалели, что сделали этот выбор.
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.
2호선 당산역 근처에 위치한 집이여서 교통이 너무너무 편했어요 밤에는 한강다리가 보여 야경이 너무 이뻤어요! 다음번에 서울에 오래 머무르게됬을때 또 이용하고싶네요!!

In December 2014, I opened my own experimental kitchen in Hongdae, and now I am working on my experimental recipes for my restaurant, to make healthy and experimental food for residents of this area. 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.
Before, I used to be a North Korean special reporter in Voice of America, the national radio press in the states. Now I am running a news curation business with my 14 writers since Jan 2013. We deliver curated articles to my 25,000 subscribers every morning.

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.
