Apartment is at a great location; it's located on the green line (the main subway line), so it was very easy to get around. The apartment was pristine at the time I arrived. The apartment building has an excellent gym.
The apartment is only 30 seconds to the metro station. It is really cozy and clean. The view outside the window is really beautiful！I like it very much！
The listing was exactly as described! It's easy to get to and once you're there you won't want to leave because the view is AMAZING. You're one stop away by metro from Hapjeong which is an chill, artsy area of Seoul with great cafe's and food places. Layla actually has a super sweet little restaurant in Hapjeong which I highly recommend checking out because the food is great and the atmosphere is perfect. I'd say getting to meet and hang out with Layla was definitely a highlight of this airbnb experience as well, she's a great host and an awesome person. She responds very quickly to any questions and will give good recommendations on places to check out. Hongdae is only 2 stops away and is filled with shops, restaurants, bars, night clubs, and live outdoor performances if that's something you're interested in (which you should be.) All in all, this is an A+ listing, for the right price, in a solid area of Seoul. I would definitely book again.
I had such an amazing experience in Seoul thanks to Layla! Firstly the apartment was perfect. Exactly as shown - so clean, well prepared and well stocked - everything I needed. The view of the city was stunning and the location was excellent - so close to Metro stop, easily accessible from the airport and just a short hop to some of the most vibrant, creative and exciting parts of the city. After my arrival Layla wrote to see if I was settling in well and I ended up visiting her new culinary venture - Bakc to Basikc for some delicious lunch. Layla gave me so many local tips and was an absolutely outstanding host. Could not recommend highly enough and will definitely stay there again.
A very cozy apartment in good condition. The view from the french windows is unbeatable, especially at night. Very near to the metro line 2 & 9, the location is good and convenient. I always can't fall asleep at night when I was on trip, however, the cozy environment in this apartment made me feel so comfortable to fall in sleep. Highly recommended and will surely back to this apartment again next time in Seoul!
I have chosen the apartment generally because of a view from the window. And the view was really great especially at night time. The apartment was very cozy. I enjoyed my stay there. It was easy to communicate with Layla. I texted to Layla when arrived to airport and she advised me a convenient way to get to the apartment from the airport by bus. I arrived to Seoul at night and Layla left the key in a post box. It was easy to get to the apartment according Layla's instructions. I have never seen Layla because of difference in our schedules but it was great to communicate with her through the messenger and she was ready to help all the time.

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.
