This is a private apartment located in the very center of Seoul. The district (Yongsan gu) is the hottest spot in Seoul boasting international cuisine, great connections to all area of the city and a foreigner friendly environment with a uniquely Korean feel.
the apartment is in a newly renovated building with all modern comforts. We are sure you will feel at home in Korea here!
Itaewon is famous for being exciting, somewhat risky and never sleeping. What is locally called Itaewon freedom! The space is in juxtaposition to its location in that it is a tranquil place above all the hustle and bustle. Relax in the modern living room bursting with natural light, take a long rainfall shower in the sleek bathroom, be creative in the full equipped new kitchen or take the time to watch a sun set on our furnished roof terrace. But don't get too cozy! There is so much to see, eat and do just outside your door!
So.. "Itaewon Freedom".. what does this mean? I think it means Itaewon has a liberal and accepting atmosphere and the diversity and accessibility of choice. Iteawon is the relaxed side of Korea!
The location is also ideal to explore other districts with the ancient old city (Myeondong, Gyungbok palace, Dondaemun) under 10~20min to the North, Gangnam, Sinsa under 10~20 min to the South and University party spot Hongdae, Ehwa and Kondae 20~30min to the east and west. A perfect base to explore the city!

What about your host?
Hi! I will be your host, Vincent! I know Korea well and speak Korean and English. I am on available 24hrs a day. I would be happy to make suggestions/ give advice on where to go, local events, venues, food. I am only a call away should you get lost of need language assistance. Be it to order chicken or to translate specific directions to taxi drivers, I think all thus far appreciate the peace of mind in knowing there is always reliable assistance at hand.
Thank you for considering visiting my apartment, I hope to meet you soon in Seoul!
