I have stayed in many Airbnbs while traveling in Korea – I stayed at this unit for 1 month. I especially liked this unit for its size and style. While is it small, I found it perfect. The design of the cabinets allowed for lots of storage space but also made the unit very minimal. It was cozy in a Korean city/Seoul kind of way.
The unit provided almost everything I needed for my stay. While the unit had cooking utensils, pots and pans, I would have liked some basic cooking ingredients like oil and salt, but I was able to manage without it. The unit has a washing machine, drying racks, detergent, and softener for laundry.
The host was very accommodating. His prompt reply makes him an excellent host. He is always quick to reply to any of my questions and was able to fix my light bulb and provide a new microwave within the next day following my request.
The location is close to the subway station- no hill, just an easy walk even with luggage. It is also very close to the airport shuttle – which is a MUST when traveling with large luggage. I was able to lug two 50lb suitcases to the airport shuttle bus stop in less than 10minutes. I also like this area for the restaurants – I don’t know of any other neighborhood with so many all-you-can-eat restaurants (all-you-can-eat Korean pork belly, all-you-can-eat salmon sashimi, all-you-can-eat Chinese lamb skewers and more). The restaurants around this area are also open late. Often times, I found myself eating here than eating out around the city.
For these reasons and more, I miss living there.
