The Space

Newly built cozy private apartment, No Sharing !

Conveniently located in the heart of Seoul !
A 5 minute walk from Gongdeok station (Line #5, Line #6 and AREX)
and 50 minutes by bus from Incheon international airport.
Near to major cultural properties and tourism spots like MYUNGDONG, HONGDAE, GWANGHWAMUN square and DONGDAEMUN. Short distance to the YEOUIDO Financial District.

So I would especially recommend my place to....

▶ Women Travelers
Worried about safety? No worries here as there are bright lights around the building all night.

▶ People visiting on Business
Close Proximity to the Yeouido financial district ( National assembly building, the Korea stock exchange, The Federation of Korean Industries, Broadcasting centers such as KBS, MBC, SBS, etc.)
Just 3 stops by subway #5

▶ Small Families with 1-3 members
People who want a quiet night's sleep
Near all sorts of transportation, important if you have kids ! (taxis are always passing by)
General Conveniences close by.

There are many restaurants and coffee shops and big supermarkets(E-mart, Lotte mart) right outside the building,
so you don’t need to worry about what to eat.
And for early birds or people who are on a tight budget, you can cook of course.

Especially, you can taste origins all sorts of KOREAN FOOD here. Tenpura road(Nokdojeon / Koji / Dongtaejeon / Gochujeon / Haemuljeon / Guljeon and etc..) is right next door
and the Mapo KOREAN BBQ district is just across the street.
Both places are famous tourist spots.
HONGDAE, the "it place" with all the great clubs and cafes is close by. After enjoying Friday club night, come home by taxi. (only $3-4 to get home, and a safe location to get off at !)

This is a nice size apartment with one-bedroom and one bathroom. It is a fully-furnished apartment.
FREE WIFI internet connection !!
Appliances are brand-new; super single-sized bed, korean-style bedding sets as well, new kitchen, new bathroom, new closets. There is a washing machine in the house.
With a 32-inch LCD FLAT TV, you can enjoy 123 various channels lying in bed.

We have ELEVATOR in the building and the security office on 2nd floor. You would lock the door with an electronic lock system by entering the password number. so you don’t need worry about carrying around.(We change passwords every time we have new guests)
There is an intercom inside the appartment so you can check the visitor from inside your house. SECURITY staff will be at the station ready to help with 24/7 as well.

After booking , I will send the manual how to get in, neighbor maps which I made, password code for door.

At a very reasonable price, you can have your own apartment with the quality and comfort of home.
Enjoy the city atmosphere in the heart one of the busiest commercial downtown areas in Seoul.

  • A clean and cosy apartment fitted with everything one would need on a trip. Apartment is easily accessible from the airports via the AREX and is nothing more than a 5 mins walk or 7mins with luggage in toll from exit 5 of the station. Lina is also a great host who responds promptly to all questions and give good suggestions of what to do and where to go when in doubt. One can rest comfortably and in peace at her place anytime. Hope you will enjoy your stay there as much as I did!

  • I had a really great experience staying at Lina's apartment for 7 nights, Lina is very great host, kind and considerate ♡ (((^____^))) The apartment is very clean + comfortable + convenient location, and provides almost everything that you need. Highly recommended!

  • I had an absolutely amazing experience at Lina's studio! Lina is a perfectionist when it comes to being a host. She has made sure that I had all the answers to any questions I could possibly have. The space is quite smaller then the picture had me presume...but from my experience in staying in Seoul...this is the norm. Quite comfortable for one...a tight squeeze for two. It seems like the space is in the suburb, but a short walk there's tons of food, drink, stores, and transportation. I did not use it, but a cool factor is that the subway station has the rapid train going straight to the Incheon airport for less than $4! Pretty awesome!
    Thank you Lina for being a great host~and the extra blanket you brought over! Totally used it!

  • Lina provides and amazing Apartment^^. All my friends who walked in were amazed and felt comfortable with the atmosphere, including me. It's so easy to find it, and to go back to the Airport since the Airport line is at the Gongdeok Station (which is also a very central station and a good location). And I really loved how snacks and drinks were provided when I walked in the apartment. I haven't met Lina in Person but we kept writing on the phone to each other and whenever I had any questions or something to clarify, she answered pretty fast and gave me all the informations I needed. I recommend this Apartment to everyone who wants to have a comfortable stay in Seoul, the price is definitely worth for what you get... Just make sure you close the curtains in Summer days before you go out or sleep at night, and maybe leave the window open a little bit, since the sun is shining in during the day, it can get very warm in the apartment on hot days ^^

  • I'd a nice stay at Lina's place for more than a month. It is fully equipped, and even if there is a lack of resources (which is quite impossible as the apartment almost provided everything), there is a mart which is 3 mins away from the apartment, thus it is very convenient.

    There is a problem which is a lack of telecommunication device, as some people would not want to call for delivery due to the high charge by our own country's telecommunication companies, thus if there is a telephone or prepaid telephone, it will be more convenient.

    In addition, the apartment somehow produces dust very often even though I had never open the windows before. So, there is a need to clean the place everyday or once in two days.

    However, all in all, whatever that is needed are provided, so I'd a nice vacation. Thank you once again, Lina. :)

  • Lina's place reminded me of the lovely place I used to live in a few years ago not far away from hers. I stayed for 11 days and it was a pleasure...everything you need is there. There is no need for bringing too much stuff yourself, like shampoo or towels etc. Her little NEST is a bit small, but since I stayed there alone it was all I needed. I have lived in Seoul so I knew my way around, but Lina would have been a phone call away and she would be happily try to help if I wouldn't known something. She prepared everything well and definitely recommend her place highly!

  • I had a wonderful stay at Lina's place. The environment was exactly the live version of what you'll see on the pictures ;).
    This room will offer you everything you'll need, going from a washing machine, extra dishes and pillows to toilet utensils, nothing has been overlooked.
    I also really appreciated was the personal touch Lina gave to my stay;
    I could reach her easily and she handwrote a very detailed manual (I loved that!) and other instructional information. It gave the room the feeling I was coming home and I seriously already want to go back!

    The location is about 3 minutes away from a main subway station (Gongdak), which means vibrant neighbourhoods such as Hongdae, Ewhae & Itaewon are easy to reach, with few transfers if you'd prefer going for example to Dongdaemun, Namdaemun.

    I highly recommend this place!

  • My stay at Lina's was amazing. Its the perfect size for a solo traveller like myself. It was very warm, cozy and welcoming-- exactly like the photos. The space was extremely clean. The location is perfect-- only a few minute walk from Gongdeok station which connects to several metro lines that can take you all over seoul! Definitely a place I'd come back to when I revisit seoul. Thanks for an amazing time !

  • the accomodation was exactly the same as the photo and was perfect for one person maybe...two and everything a traveller need was there to use. Eespecially I loved where the place was located as it was right behind the local market and was easily assescible to everywhere. Thank you Lina
