The Space

Great Location! Nice price! Cozy and quiet place! 5 minute from the Subway station and Bus stop.

Do you want to stay at most cozy place in the middle of Itaewon and Seoul?
Super near nice international restaurant, bar and club.
Even though very quite and safe at night time.
Easy to access Subway station and Bus stop.
Can get any place in Seoul in 30 min.

If you looking like that place, my Guest House will satisfy you.
You can use
- comfortable bedroom include a bathroom
(shower, hotwater 24/hours)
- A brand new air-conditioning
- Nice Heating floor system
- A kitchen with cooking facilities
- A fridge, TV, Hair Dryer
- Free High speed Wi-fi.
- Free Washing Machine
- Sheets and towels.

Our neighborhood is quiet and absolutely safe. so you can rest in peace.

※ You need to share kitchen and bathroom with 203 / Room 2. But just 2 rooms share that. so not big problem, in my think.

Addition) This room has good heating system. so You don't need worry about the cold weather.

ITAEWON : The Global Community in Seoul: Global Fashions and Foods
----------------------------------------------
Itaewon is a unique place in Seoul where one can meet people of diverse nationalities and cultures. There is a popular joke saying that international residents may not know Seoul, but they know Itaewon. Seoul even designated Itaewon as its first ‘Special Tourism District,’ to highlight it as a destination for internationals to enjoy a diversity of culture, shopping, and entertainment experiences.

Itaewon is in the middle of Yongsan-gu, which borders the northern part of the Hangang River. It is also close to Seoul Station, Myeong-dong, and Namsan Mountain. The formation of this exotic and global tourism site is closely associated with modern Korean history.

In the aftermath of the Korean War, American soldiers began to stay in the Yongsan Garrison and, consequently, numerous businesses and housing complexes were formed in Yongsan. In preparation for international meetings, the Seoul Asian and Olympic Games, the government strengthened tourism infrastructures and revitalized commerce, prompting international tourists from other parts of the world (such as Japan, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, etc.) to visit Itaewon.

Itaewon typically refers to the street full of stores, restaurants, and stalls over 1.4 kilometers between Itaewon 1-dong and Hannam 2-dong in the east. Fashion shops specialize in various imported clothes, leather goods, fur goods, handbags, shoes, and antique furniture. Big and tall sizes unavailable in other areas are well-stocked, and experienced tailors offer customized clothes.

Another one of Itaewon’s many draws is its diverse food culture, which features cuisine from around world. Restaurants right behind Hamilton Hotel form a type of exhibition hall for international foods from Korea, New York, London, India, Thailand, China, Greece, Pakistan, Italy, France, Mexico, Australia, and more. Unique flavors, exotic interiors, and diverse nationalities help to make Itaewon befittingly ‘the global village in Seoul.’

  • A very nice place to stay, especially with a very reasonable price.

    Getting there
    We took a taxi from Incheon airport. For those considering to take a taxi, it would be better to ask the driver to drop you off at Hamilton hotel and make your way to the apartment on foot. Unless the driver is sure of the location. Also, the guide showing us the directions to the apartment through pictures had some parts that were not up to date.

    Going back
    We took the airport limousine bus to Incheon Airport that was only a 7-10 minutes walk from the apartment, located at the bus stop at Exit 4 of Itaewon station. It was very convenient and we would definitely take the bus next time instead of a taxi.

    Laundry Service
    There is a washing machine for use in the bathroom which can be used from 9am to 9pm. The family will provide laundry racks to hang the clothes. Generally, we took about 1-2 days to dry our clothes in winter indoors.

    Accessibility
    It is only a 5-7 minutes walk from Itaewon Station. Very convenient and there is a convenience store very near to the apartment. However, the route leading to the apartment has quite a steep slope of about 15-20m. It can get a little tiring at times but it should be fine in general.

    Heating System
    The heating system of the house is excellent. However, air-conditioning was not allowed during winter and thus the room was a little stuffy.

    Bathroom
    It is very spacious and there is hot water on 24/7.

    Kitchen
    Generally has all the necessary equipment and utensils. Refrigerator is big enough for 2 rooms to share.

    Very nice experience staying at the apartment. The grandparents of the host were very warm and friendly. We forgot to hang our clothes once and when we were back at night, we realized that they helped us. They were also very helpful and patient with us as we could only communicate with them in our limited and poor korean. The apartment and the area around it also felt quite safe even at night.

    Do note that even though there is a computer shown in the picture, the computer was disconnected and we could not use it. For any return flight check-in, it would be advisable to bring your own laptops.

  • Nice room throughout the stay. Must follow the instructions to walk up from itaewon station cos we took a taxi from Seoul station but taxi driver drop us nearby the apartment but it took some effort to find the apartment.
    Good wifi connection, well equipped kitchen n laundry service.

  • Extremely warm and inviting family yet knows to be discreet. I couldn't recommend Youngjin more for his hospitality and genuine kindness.

    Location is unbeatable, barely 5mins walk to itaewon station and 2mins to some of the best nightlife in Seoul. Highly highly recommended stay.
