Stylish, quiet, and relaxing. The rooftop garden is ideal for having breakfast outdoors, and the room itself is beautiful, clean, and with many amenities. Our host was wonderful, my best Air B&B experience so far!!

What a perfect beginning to our Korean vacation. Ssem took good care of us. The rooftop apartment is what kdrama fans wish for. It's walking distance to everything you would want to visit in Suwon. Restaurants and convenience stores are a plenty. The apartment was clean and new. …

[Ann 여사의 후기 한역] 한국에서 우리 휴가의 출발은 정말 완벽했다. 쌤은 우리를 잘 챙겨줬다. 숙소인 옥탑방은 흡사 K드라마 팬을 위한 곳이었다. 그 곳에서 당신은 수원(화성행궁유적)을 여행하며 탐방하고자 하는 모든 곳들을 걸어서 갈 수 있을 것이다. 음식점과 편의점은 충분히 많다. 옥탑방은 깨끗했으며 새로 인테리어를 한 상태였다. 쌤은 매일 우리를 보살폈고 우리에게 먹거리에 대한 훌륭한 추천을 해 주었다. 그는 참으로 Airbnb가 무엇인지 모두 알고 있습니다. 훌륭하고 아는 것이 많은 그는 당신이 필요할지도 모를 모든 것(세탁기 사용법과 건조방법 등)을 제공할 것이다. 심지어 냉장고는 당신의 숙박을 위해 배려깊은 아이템들로 채워져 있을 것이다. 노트북과 아이패드 및 휴대폰 충전기와 usb케이블, 심지어 젠더까지도 구비되어 있었다. 그는 이른 아침에 기차역까지 우리를 배웅해 주었다. 수원에 머무르는데 더 좋은 곳은 없다. '옥탑방'이야말로 대박이다! 옥탑방 체험. 쌤 당신의 배려 깊은 관대함에 감사드립니다. 당신이 하는 모든 일에 행운이 있길 바랍니다. 모든 것은 완벽했습니다! [나의 답글} Ms. Ann has some charm to entertain the other. The meticulous planning and preparation for the itinerary made me prepare something to meet Ann's couple. Ann delighted and continued the conversation with my questions carefully approaching in the border of kindness and interference. Ann and her husband thoroughly checked the traffic from Seoul to my place and took KTX (from Seoul to Suwon) and then by taxi (from Suwon Station to Hwaseong Palace Guest House) exactly on time and surprised me. Because it was a pretty long distance. At the rooftop of my guest house, I finally greeted them with pleasure, and Ann said their lunch plan was to taste Suwon ribs. Although Ann's former planned place was not so far from my place, she had to take a taxi to get there and return to my guest house. Then I realized that if they spent so much time for lunch, their Hwaseong Fortress Tour schedule would not smooth. (But now that I think of it, she may have planned to start a tour of the Hwaseong Palace Fortress near Suwon Ribs Restaurant, which she had studied.) Since Ann's couple didn't have to taste the Suwon Ribs there, she readily accepted my suggestion to have lunch at a rib restaurant near my place, and then she started their tour. I could see that they had prepared a lot for this Suwon Hwaseong Tour, when I heard that they would walk along the Palace Fortress, watch the sunset, eat dumplings, and tour this area by Palace Sightseeing Train. Also, since this place is famous for 'Chicken Street', ln the evening she and her husband tried 'garlic chicken' that I suggested, and the next day she visited traditional markets such as Paldal Market, Jidong and Yeongdong Market, It really amazed me. They look so beautiful as the way they arrange and plan everything on their own. On the last day Ann asked me if there's any way to get a taxi ready, because their departure time was pretty early in the morning. Even though I said yes, they didn't want to bother me by doing that. Instead they decided to walk to the taxi stand near guest house. Fortunately, they didn't have much luggage. So I could help them with my small car.(So my little car just helped solve it.) They really enjoy travelling by train and told me that they will visit some cities in Korea by train such as Seoul, Suwon Hwaseong Palace, Jeonju Hanok Village, Namhae, Busan, etc. The way they plan, experience, and explore everything together was a big emotion for me. Ann 여사에게는 상대를 즐겁게 하는 어떤 매력이 있다. 여행 일정에 대한 꼼꼼한 계획과 준비성은 앤 커플을 마중하는 내게 무엇인가를 준비하게 만들었다. 친절과 간섭의 경계 속에서 조심스레 다가가는 나의 질문들을 앤여사는 즐겁게 받아 주며 대화를 이끌어갔다. 스스로 서울에서 수원 옥탑방 숙소까지의 교통을 꼼꼼히 살펴서, KTX 열차(서울~수원)와 택시(수원역~화성행궁 숙소)로 약속 시간에 정확히 찾아와 나를 놀라게 하였다. 옥탑방 옥상에서 마주한 우리는 옥상 정원을 둘러 보며 반갑게 인사를 나누었고, 앤부부는 점심 계획이 수원갈비를 맛보는 것이라고 하였다. 미리 조사를 해 온 갈비집이 비록 숙소에서 아주 멀지는 않지만 적어도 택시를 타야 하며, 다시 숙소 근처로 돌아와 행궁 투어를 하기에는 일정이 촉박해 보였다.(하지만 지금 생각해 보면 조사해 온 갈비집 근처에서 행궁성벽 투어를 시작하려고 계획을 세웠었는지도 모르겠다.) 반드시 그곳에서 수원갈비 맛을 보아야 하는 것이 아니라면, 숙소 옆 행궁 근처에도 갈비 맛집이 있다는 나의 제안을 내외는 흔쾌히 받아들이며 일정을 시작하였다. 행궁 성벽을 코스별로 걸으며 일몰을 감상하고, 만두를 먹을 것이며, 행궁열차를 타고 관광할 거라는 말을 듣고, 나는 앤부부가 수원 화성에 대해서 많은 공부를 하고 왔음을 알 수 있었다. 또한 이곳이 그 유명한 '통닭거리'인 만큼, 저녁에는 내가 제안한 '마늘통닭'을 먹을 것이며, 다음날은 팔달시장과 지동, 영동시장 등 재래시장을 방문해서 구경하고 먹거리를 찾아 즐길 것이라고 하여 나를 깜짝 놀라게 하였다. 모든 것을 스스로 찾아가는 적극적인 부부의 모습이 나는 너무 아름다워 보였다. 떠나는 날 열차시간에 대한 염려 때문인지 이른 아침 택시를 불러 주길 바랬으나, 심지어는 그것조차도 스스로 근처 택시 승강장을 발견하고 해결하려 하였다. 다행히 부부의 짐이 많지 않아 나의 작은 차가 이것을 해결하게 되었을 뿐이다. 열차를 좋아해서 열차로 한국을 여행하는(서울, 수원 화성행궁, 전주 한옥마을, 남해, 부산 등을 여행할 것이라고 했다.) 부부의 모습은 그 자체로 내게는 커다란 감동이었다.
