We are a couple living in Korea. I (Roc) am Korean and work as a simultaneous English/Korean interpreter mainly in the film industry and my husband Mel is a former singer from the Philippines who manages MELROC Suites and organizes tours.
We travel several times a year and have stayed at many types of hotels and aparments, so we know what WE would like to have in an apartment that we would be staying in. We plan to open more MELROC Suites over the next few years and want to provide spacious accomodations that are located strategically in Seoul with all the amenities you would need.
When we travel, we find easy access to public transportation and a wide range of choices in where to eat are at the top of our priority list. We also like to cook simple meals sometimes so we want to furnish our units to make that possible and be able to do laundry.
We've been showing people around Korea and the Philippines for the past few years already and loved it, so we decided to make what we enjoy a job. We know exactly how it feels when you don't know which restaurant is the best place for what dish and where to go to shop for what. We want our guests to get the best out of their visits.
We also have many bilingual friends who will take care of our guests when we are traveling somewhere else. Every visitor will be welcomed personally by one or both of us or a friend who is equally welcoming and helpful!
