My priority is to give maximum privacy to the guests unless they really want to meet me and have coffee, dinner, lunch, and so on. I provide "Eat Korean Authentic Breakfast with Host" service. If you are travelling alone and would like to have Korean authentic breakfast, I can join you and introduce some authentic Korean foods in this area.
I might have to enter the guest room to pick up things like sheets and pillows I store in the units. I will give you prior notice for this.
My guests so far mostly have had their own plans, but if you need some extra help, I will help you as long as I can.
While you can benefit from the safety, security, and cleanliness of this area thanks to the specialty of this area with the convention center called COEX where world summits come together for meetings, this location is also very close to some hot and hip Gangnam locations such as world class clubs, Octagon and Ellui, and hippy streets such as Garosugil and huge shopping and regular hangout areas such as Gangnam station and department stores. As a single female who once lived in AKA the best city to live, Vancouver, I wouldn't choose to live anywhere else than this area unless I had a car and I could afford to live in the uptown residential area in Gangnam with three bedrooms.
Samseong subway station line number 2 is located only 3~5 minutes walk away from this flat. Subway line number 2 connects most of the most visited spots in Seoul such as Dongdaemun, Myeongdong, Sinchon, Jamsil, Gangnam, Samseongdong, Seoul National University, and so on. Some Seoulites, when they are looking for their next home, they make sure it is near line number 2.
Located on one of the most expensive roads in Seoul, every cab driver knows this area. Located in an open area where taxis are lining up ALL THE TIME, the last thing you have to worry about is not being able to explain to the driver where to go. I will write a simple Korean for you to show drivers which will tell them where to go and they wouldn't have to ask any other question. This does not happen with every location.
My motto is friendly and helpful service, but I will leave you alone if I figure out that's what you want from your simple and straightforward reservation without asking for much communication.

This was a cozy, lovely place at a wonderful location in downtown Seoul. I won't hesitate to stay here again when I visit Seoul next time. The host (Hanna) was very attentive and there was nothing inconvenient at all. I very strongly recommend this place.
The place was good and we have spent 3 wonderful days in Seoul. It was easy to find the place as the manual provided by Hanna was very good including pictures of the buildings and roads. I would definately recomment to all my friends to use Hanna's place in the future in case they would travel to Seoul in the future.
Thanks a lot Hanna
Hanna's place is literally right across from COEX and intercontinental hotel, and literally 2 minutes walk from the airport shuttle (so you can simply take the airport shuttle to/from ICN). City Terminal is also a 5 minute walk from here, so you can check in your luggage before you head over to ICN.
The bed was pretty huge and place is super clean, very well maintained.
The location and room was exactly as described! Hanna was being very sincere throughout our stay although we were overwhelmed with our own schedule ahead of her whenever she thought we might need her help..Nevertheless, it has been a very wonderful and comfortable stay for us! I will return again and definitely staying the same place. The location itself is really convenient and her manual guide is really informative! Thank you Hanna!
Thanks very much for staying and leaving a great review. I was very sad on the day I thought you were leaving since I was staying right next to your room. You didn't know that! right? :) I tried to stay quiet because you might have gotten wrong impression otherwise. You have been very communicative and I appreciate that very much. I look forward to hosting you again in April. Sorry I have been very late in responding nowadays catching all the sleep I missed during the holiday. I haven't even been able to leave comments for my holiday guests' reviews.. which are down from here.. Anyways, I will see you again. Take very good care of yourself till then. Very best, Hanna
We had a nice stay at Hanna's. The place is very convenient and well-situated, right opposite the Hyundai Department Store. Plus, there are convenient stores and coffee shops downstairs. The room is clean, the bed is soooooo comfortable and the shower room is quite big. Hanna is a nice host as well. She replied every messages of mine quickly. Also, the house manual she gave us is very detailed and useful.
Hanna's apartment was great. Very clean. Very Central. It had everything you could need. A lot like a hotel except better since it had a kitchen. Hanna was a great host. attentive and helped me catch the bus to the airport. She speaks English well too.
I'd definitely recommend Hanna's place.
Staying at Hanna's one room in Seoul was great. This apartment is really well located for travelers looking for convenience (close to city airport), good eats (lots of great local food options), and fun (very close to malls & subway station, bus stops & taxi!!). We didn't get to meet Hanna due to our busy schedule but next time around I'll be sure to make time to meet her in person. She is VERY prompt in her emails as well as very helpful with ALL your inquiries. She's super nice to have taken care of the trash bill (that one has to pay when throwing out big items in Korea) for us. Overall, we would definitely come back to this apartment whenever we're traveling in Korea. Thank you Hanna!
This wasn't a long term stay, hence I wasn't able to take advantage of all the amenities. But I can honestly say that everything I could have possibly wanted was in this room. The bed was so comfy, laying there for a few minutes when I arrived I dozed off before even unpacking. The TV is HUGE and the amount of channels are overwhelming. Be careful, you might waste a day of your vacation just exploring all the channels. Aside from that, all the appliances,etc. were all LG so it's not cheap stuff.
Also it's pretty close to the city airport terminal where you can actually check in your luggage prior to the airport and avoid all the long lines!
Hanna is a sweet person and was able to take some time out of her day to show me around lots of the great places which I probably wouldn't have found on my own. If you ever get the chance, do yourself a favor and let her show you around :)
Hi Kevin, Thank you for leaving the review during your busy schedule. I really appreciate it. Hope you got over your jetlag by now. I had so much fun showing you around the places that are not easy for tourists to spot. Thank you for your generosity and paying for my expensive one night's fee for the unit. Next time hopefully you will not have enough of the points at Hyatt so that you will stay in my flat again. :) Absolutely enjoyed your company. Let me know if you come back to Seoul. Warm regards, Hanna
I recommend this place highly!!!
This was my first time trying out a place from Airbnb, so I was a little skeptical when I made a reservation from San Francisco. The posting is very accurate! Everything was true to what Hanna stated.
Several features I want to emphasize are:
1) great location! I haven't been to Korea for over thirteen years and didn't know my way around. Following her photo directions (very helpful to visualize), I had no problem finding her place from the terminal. Getting around from her place was very easy! The location is superb! You can't beat this location.
2) comfy bed! I've never slept so well away from home! This bed is seriously comfortable.
3) view!! The view is amazing! You can even see the sunrise in the morning from the room (but not in your eyes to wake you up in case you wanted to sleep in). I just loved it.
4) clean! Hanna keeps her place clean. I immediately felt comfortable the moment I walked in. It smelled clean and cozy.
5) wonderful hostess! Hanna was helpful but not overbearing. Just a perfect hostess! She also speaks fluent English.
Booking was a breeze. She was prompt in responses and communicated well.
These are only a few among many great things about this place. Also, the neighborhood and the building felt safe and secure. Since I stayed at Hanna's place, I recommended her place to everyone I talked to. I highly recommend Hanna's place!
Thank you, Hanna!
Hi Heejay! I can't believe how quick you are in everything! I also checked out your comment on my review!! OMG You must be 3 quad-cores put together! How do you do that with your job? It's not even an easy job I think.. You must be a genius.. I am too weak to catch up.. Also came down with flu.. Maybe I should learn the confidence from you!! It was all my pleasure to host you. Next time I will take you around. Maybe I should start swimming too! I feel so weak even more nowadays. Thank you so much for everything Heejay! Best wishes, Hanna
everything was as advertised, close to my meeting spot - close to great restaurants and shopping. smooth checkin and comfortable and safe. could not have been easier.
