Amazing View, Cozy 1BD Studio

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Seoul, 152-050, South Korea

My cozy and comfortable one bed apartment with panoramic city view has a true city feeling. Just 5-6 minutes walk from Sindorim station where you can take subway line 1 and 2. It connects major tour spots within 10-30 minutes, only 1.5 USD fare.

The Space

People do love my apartments because,

1. Clean and Cozy as this is newly built
2. Many delicious restaurants just in front of this building. Recommend a roast pork belly and a broiled beef intestine
3. Panoramic view through the large windows
4. People can go almost everywhere in Seoul by taking subway 1 and 2 from Sindorim station. The fare is only 3 USD for round trip.
5. Very quite.

People don't like my apartment because,

1. Bit far from center of Seoul, like Gangnam. Takes about 30-40 minutes by subway. But, takes only 15 minutes to Hongdae by subway. And, you can go almost everywhere by subway line 1 and 2

Location and local attractions

5 minutes from Sindorim subway station by foot.
Situated in the south-west zone of Seoul, where the subway lines 1, 2 and 7 are crossing. D-cube city department store, E-mart, Homeplus(giant supermarkets in Korea), Technomart(shopping mall complex, especially for IT and digital products) and Times-square are all within walking distance.

  • My visit to Korea was wonderful and staying at Jaemu´s apartment contributed to it. I enjoyed coming back every evening from my meetings and contemplate the city lights with my lights turned off, I felt like I had the city at my feet. Certainly, an amazing view.

    It was also great to have all the amenities such as soap, shampoo, dishwasing soap, detergent, washing machine, TV, computer, hair dryer, etc. ah: salt, sugar, tea, little things that previous tenants had left. I left my TMoney card for the next visitor to use.

    I fell in love with the people of Korea. Jaemu, thank you very much for all your assistance.

  • We loved the apartment, we had four, enough place for everyone. Area is also very good, near the metro in 5 minutes, restaurants, cafes very much, the most important thing there is a large grocery store, Technomart, shopping mall. The apartment has all the amenities. on the ground floor also has a small shop. We absolutely enjoyed it. Thank Jaemu.
    P.S. For Russian customers have near-КВbank ATM with Russian menu is very convenient.

  • Great apartment. Everything was provide, Very close to the train station and local shops, movie theater, mall and local restaurants and pubs. We had such a great experience with Jaemu that before we arrived to the Apartment we didn't have to contact her again, because she provide everything that was asked for.

    You get a lot more for what the price says!!!

  • It's an awesome apartment! Me and my two friends had a great 9 days vacation at Mr Yu's place! It's a one-room studio with really nice view (although it's winter and snowless..) and the apartment has everything we needed! :)
    That wifi-egg thing is really a big recommendation to travellers like me as Seoul's streets can be a little confusing and internet access is always a helpful thing to have!
    Location wise; we got a bit lost when we tried to locate the apartment on the first day of arrival, but here's a tip, make sure to screenshot the area map into your phone beforehand (at the airport where there's wifi), so that it's easier for the locals to help you with the navigation! :)

    역하고 조금 멀었던것이 아쉬웠습니다.
    Es un lugar muy lindo limpio es recomendable.
    Pero un poco lejo desde estacion shindorim.

    January 2014
  • The house is located in near Shindorim station - it's close to the centre but quite for staying. You will find everything around there!

    I had to book the place urgently for my parents and Mr. Yu was very kind and quickly answered my queries. The house was spacious and clean enough to make my parents feel comfortable.
    My parents were very happy with the house :)
    If I have a chance, I would love to stay there again.

    Thank you very much for help Mr Yu!

As we love travelling and travel a lot. if you need an advise about travel in Korea, we are glad to help you. Hope you can make a good memory in Korea. 您好! 我叫柳在茂。我是在首尔生活的韩国人。我听很多新闻说来韩国的中国旅客很难找到舒适的宾馆。如果有好的就是价格很贵,如果有便宜的就离首尔很远。这会给访问韩国的中国旅客对韩国留下一种不怎么样的印象。爱中国的我本人就觉得太可惜了。 。因此我和我的妻子把我家里的房间租给外国旅客住.这被称韩国民宿(Koreastay),是被韩国政府批准的.而且还把几件公寓租给访问首尔的外国旅客. 如果你们想找间又便宜又方便的宾馆,来我家体验一下韩国的文化怎么样? 如果你们要便宜而且离首儿中心的公寓也跟我联系. 因为我非常喜欢旅行而游览了很多韩国的名胜古迹,自然风景区, 如果你们需要我的导游服务,司机服务随时询问我.费用也比一般旅行社会便宜得多. 我妻子正在教韩国流行歌的舞蹈,想要练K-pop dance的旅客尽量问我. 谢谢。 ようこそWonderSeoulへ。 私はュジャムと申します。今韓国のソウルに住んでいる会社員です。 僕は外国の文化や外国人との交流に関心があります。 そして、ソウルを訪れる日本人のためホームステイもやっていますので、関心がある方はいつでも連絡してください。 よろしくお願いします。
