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!

The house is exactly as pictured. It is very clean and comfortable. Everything is very thoughtful, from the kitchen utensils, the towels & hair dryer, the house slippers to umbrellas.. etc. The wifi egg and T-money cards are especially useful throughout our journey.
The house is just a 3 mins walk to Itaewon station (though there is a slight climb). The area is surrounded with good eateries.
The hosts are helpful and friendly couple who made our stay a most pleasant one. I would recommend this place to my friends.
Im and her husband very kindly welcomed us all at the station, which made it much easier for us not speaking korean.
Their apartment is well equipped and very clean, giving a very authentic traditional experience in a lively quarter of Seoul.
Super easy to find a place to eat and small supermarket nearby.
Definitely a nice place to stay for a short while in Seoul.
Thank you Im!
We were warmly welcomed by Mr & Mrs Shin upon our arrival and they were ever so helpful in getting our many luggages into the house from the taxi. The house is exactly as shown and Mr Shin patiently showed us where everything we needed was. Warm floors and good heating system was very much appreciated while we braved through the cold Spring weather. Nonetheless, though the house is situated in a quiet alley, I must say it is very convenient to get to the subway station or just hailing a cab from the street. However, the small road up to the main street was probably a little too steep for my mum but she made it! Thank you very much for the wonderful stay Mr & Mrs Shin. I will not stop sharing your lovely place with my friends & family :)
Im and Shim welcomed us warmly when we arrived. They recommended a really reliable airport pick up service by Funko. We greatly appreciate the free water bottles, toiletries and even some food! The house was well equiped with everything you need, even umbrella, wifi egg, and transportation cards! The house is exactly as you see it in the picture.
We had a wonderful time staying at Im’s home, and recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Seoul! Since there were 5 of us, we used all 3 bedrooms offered and it was a luxury to have 2 separate full bathrooms for us to split (rather than just one, as other places we stayed). The floors were heated, and the rooms stayed warm and cozy at all times. The beds were also very comfortable! Everything was exactly as described in the host’s bio & the pictures. Most importantly for us though, was how convenient the location was – very short walk to the metro, and right in the center of a multitude of amazing restaurants and bars! Check in was easy, as Im’s husband met us at the subway stop and walked with us over to the house to show us around. The hosts had 2 large water bottles waiting for us on arrival, which was glorious as we were parched from our long travel, as well as a wifi egg that we could bring with us as we traveled around Seoul during our stay there. Checking out was also very convenient, and we were able to check out late to make it easier for us to continue our travels. We would definitely stay here again!
The location is very good as it reach subway within walking distance. The stay is fantastic as the house got everything i needed. The only thing is the toilet is a bit cold and cause uncomfortable during the uses of the wash room.
Overall, is worth for the price. Near all the main shops, restaurant and subway and yet it is quiet during night time (no disturb on sleeping).
The hosts were helpful and friendly. The location, down a quiet alley close to Itaewon Station, is excellent. The 3 bedroom property was clean and well equipped. Having 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchenettes it is a comfortable size and convenient for 6 persons, either in one group or in two self contained groups (Each group can be private with a separate entrance). The mattresses and pillows are not as hard as one might expect, which is very welcome for those used to soft mattresses and pillows. We would recommend this property as an excellent place to stay.
