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 located in central area of Seoul. Transportation is very convenient for sightseeing and shopping. Most of tourist spots and markets(Royal Palace, Insa-dong, Myeong-dong, Dongdaemun,..) are in 10minutes away by taxi, and 25minutes by subway. Itaewon itself is one of the coolest areas in Seoul and most multi-cultural place full of bars, authentic restraurants, clubs. It's newly recognized area for young people as a popular dinner place. Many restraurants and stores are open 24 hours. The area itself is old so you won't be seeing most modern buildings but you will get a good mix of a typical neighborhood feel and cool restaurant district with character.
The house is 2~3 minutes away from Itaewon Subway Station (line 6) and from the Airport limousine bus stop.
The host does not live in the house.
The Mosque is nearby in Itaewon.
The following is a guest's review:
"While the house is part of a delightfully older street with gorgeous original homes in traditional alleys, it's just a few steps away from the modern streetscape of Itaewon. This is a tourist area with western style restaurants and many American/English speakers on the streets which did make it easy for us to feel comfortable"
"This site might be useful for more local details".
Thank you! Look forward to seeing you!
I was in Seoul with friends and we booked the whole unit. Im and Shin have been very kind since we made inquiries before booking, all our questions were answered promptly. The location of the house is perfect! It is near to the amenities we need; subway, convenient stores, eateries are all within walking distance. We also went to Itaewonland sauna (jjimjilbang), two blocks away. The house has everything we need, made us felt comfortable and just like our second home. Like other reviews, the house is clean and the small kitchen gave us convenience to prepare simple ramen meal. The Wifi-egg was handy as we can search for locations while we're on the road. We had a wonderful stay and appreciate their warm hospitality.
Shin 與 Im 的這間民宿是六人家庭旅行的理想選擇。今年（2014）過年年假我帶家人入住，我們都覺得蠻不錯的！民宿不只離車站很近，走沒幾步路就是超市，非常方便，同時又因為不是位於主要喧囂區，周遭環境氣氛是相當安靜的！晚上睡覺超安靜、超好睡。我們全家對這間民宿的評價是很滿意的，推一個！謝謝 Shin 和 Im：）
Shin and Im's place is an ideal choice for 6 people family travel. I took my family to the house celebrating the Chinese New Year of 2014 and we had a wonderful vacation. Not only the location is convenient for accessing to Itaewon station and the supermarket, but also the atmosphere remain calm due to the place is not on the main hustle and bustle area. My family and I are very satisfied and we definitely recommend the place:) Thank you Shin and Im!
everything is great about this house. the heater works well, it really helps us from the very cold weather outside. my winter seoul experience here is wonderful. the facilities are very good. the house is near to some halal restaurants so if u're muslim u need no worries. train station and bus stop are close too. it's in the quiet and safe area. Mrs. Im and Mr. Shin are great hosts. they really help us. thanks again. overall, this is wonderful.
Im's apartment was good for big families. It was clean & adequately stocked with essentials like towels, bath necessities & well equipped with laundry needs. It feels like home away from home. Room A's bathroom was separated with a door, n I felt it was too cold to take a shower there as the heating did not cover that area. Location-wise, it was 2-3 mins walk from Itaewon station but there is some slopes around. Many eateries are nearby. Im & Shim are very polite & not only they let us put our luggages in the apartment upon checkout, they also helped to arrange jumbo taxis at reasonable rates for us to go airport.
The place is located close to Itaewon station and suitable for Muslims. Lots of halal eateries and supermarkets and close to the Seoul Central mosque.
However the rooms are rather small and a bit cramp. Ideal for small families. The road leading to the house is a bit slopey. In fact most of roads around the area are slopey so it can a be a bit of challenge for some.
The owner Im and Shin communicated with us well throughout via email. Since there were 6 of us, they arrange a Jumbo taxi to pick us up from the airport at a reasonable rate. Even arrange another Jumbo taxi also at a good rate when we check out to go to Samcheongdong.
Overall the place is clean and well kept.
Dear Readers, the 3 bedrooms house hosted by Miss Im and Mr Sim was superb and highly recommended for guest travelling with family esp with kids. The location is especially great as it is located within 5-10 mins walk near metro station , itaewon stat and for muslim travellers , restaurant serving Halal food is within walking distant. The house is well equipped with internet access , washing machine and kitchenette , great for traveller who plan to stay for more than 2 days or longer period with families. The host was kind enough to welcome us during our stay and are present to wish us farewell before we depart.
Absolutely perfect! Host picked us up from the bus station and took us to the apartment. Apartment is very clean, has everything you need and the location is superb! Subway and bus are literally around the corner and so is the main street in Itaewon, endless restaurants, coffee shops, etc located around the corner. Although the apartment is right next to the main street it's completely quiet. Would recommend this apartment to anyone who is visiting Seoul!
After the first stay at Room B+C last Jan, my family and I decided to book the whole house as there was additional member added to the trip for the last Nov. As expected, booking the whole house is more convenient and comfortable. The environment of the house is still the same as last time. Same goes to the Host.
We are very thankful to the Host for greeting us warmly in the cold weather. I strongly recommend this house for other tourist as it is convenient in all aspect, i.e. foods, transportation, amenities.
We have no doubt that we'll definitely going to stay here again for our future visit :) We are really satisfied and happy staying here :)
It's the 1st time I use airbnb. I had a wonderful trip with my family in Seoul. Thanks for Im and Shin. They answered every questions quickly. We took off from the airport bus at the Metro exit no. 3 and there was a police station right there. And then I asked the police to lend me phone, the policemen are friendly. Shin came to pick me up at 5 minutes. We rent all 3 rooms. Rooms are spacious and clean, with wifi egg (free! save $) and a lot of maps and tour readings, a lot of towels, shower stuff etc etc...
We went to Sokcho for 2N3D, Im helps us not only keeping our luggage, but keep the 3 rooms for us free so that actually we paid 5 nights but use the house for 7 nights :D
I'd recommend it to all friends coming to Seoul! It's cozy, spacious, clean and convenient.
Picked the right guesthouse! Im was a great communicator. Her husband Shin and Im were very hospitable. Every question were attended to, any issues were rectified straight away. Perfect location, less than 5 minutes to Itaewon station. I would definitely recommend this place to others. Thanks Im and Shin for the stay.
