Locations and connections to places and attractions in Seoul
The house is conveniently located at the center of the city. And it's well connected with subway. It takes less than 5 minutes to Sinsa station (subway line3) by walking
You can reach most of areas in Seoul in less than one hour and subway line 3 passes through all the must-see-sightseeing places such as Korean palaces (Kyoungbok palace, Changkyoung palace), traditional village town(North village-Bukchon) and Insadong(shopping area for traditional stuff). It takes 15--20 minutes from Sinsa station to get these areas.
The house is only about 10 minutes away from Itaewon, the biggest international town in Seoul. There are a lot of pubs, restaurants, shops in the area. And it's also close to Apgujung and Chungdam areas where are a lot of fancy places are.
And our area is one of the hippest areas in the city!
No shoes on floor! No smoking in the room!
We didn't enjoy our stay because of the mosquito problem in the flat, which unfortunately none of the other reviewers mentioned, but clearly encountered, as evidenced by the dead Mosquitos stuck to the ceilings and walls. They were never cleaned up. We made sure to close up all windows and doors, bought mosquito spray and a zapper, but they still kept coming. My 3 month old had more than 20 bug bites, including 8 on her face, so the last night we decided to give up and move to a hotel.
We also found a dead cockroach on the patio area. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, the shower area gets everything wet. While at first I thought this was a silly comment as most Korean bathrooms allow you to get the whole bathroom wet, however, this bathroom is so small, there is no good place to aim your showerhead without getting your towel or the toilet and toilet paper wet.
The only good thing about this place was the location. However, it wasn't worth the constant fear of getting attacked by Mosquitos or the bites themselves.
Kiwoong was great and met my travel partner upon arrival. Great communication. The flat was a bit smaller than I was expecting from the photos but still very comfortable and clean. Has everything you need - fridge, washer for laundry (no dryer), stove, etc… and the location is perfect. Lots to do right around the area and Garosu-gil (Coffee Smith and Vatos Tacos) and also very central to get to other areas of the city.
It was such a pleasure to stay in Kiwoong's house. It was very clean and accommodated comfortably our group of four. The host was helpful and provided everything we needed. The neighborhood is one of the best in Seoul. You can find a plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. The access is very easy by bus or metro.
Very nice flat, everything was as expected. There were some confusion and miscommunication when meeting up to check-in, but I feel that it was mostly on my part and Kiwoong went out to help me find my way, so no worries there.
Me and my friend were not in the apartment very much, so I can't tell if everything works, but as far as I know it's all good!
Though it's small flat but clean and located in good area with full if fashionable shop and good restaurant!
