★ LOCATION, LOCATION & LOCATION ★
￭ THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS
Our flat is located in the core of uptown (Gangnam) where all the events (your must-go spots) takes place every day. There are a hundred of reasons to love GANGNAM. To illustrate just a few, there are millions of places like cafes, all kinds of restaurants & bars, and very interesting shops, clubs and etc (*please refer to the pictures) that you can visit just by simply walking around.
You can just name it, you will have all within just an arm’s reach. Not to mention that many convenience stores in front of studio building also (*refer to pictures shown), within a five to ten minutes walking distance from the apartment, there are gazillion of restaurants that range from fast food take-out to exquisite fine dining of all variety.
World Trade Center & COEX Mall ; The World Trade Center holds all variety of exhibition, conventions, forums and etc almost every day and the COEX Mall is the largest underground shopping center in Asia, located only three stops away from GangNam metro station Line #2 (takes only 10~15 minutes to reach). The colossal shopping center stretches from SamSeong Station (Line #2) in the south all the way to BongEunSa temple in the north, and is considered to be the best shopping and entertainment complex in the area.
Garosu-Gil ; used to be where aspiring Korean artists used to set up their studios, away from the more expensive districts. Now it has become lined with Asian and European fusion restaurants and cafes, latest fashion and designer clothing and accessory boutiques, art galleries and nightclubs. This 700 meter-long boulevard lined with gingko trees can be especially pleasant (or romantic) for pedestrians (or for couples) out for a stroo in autumn, as the golden gingko leaves imbue the visitors with an indelible sense of warmth and nostalgia. Contrary to some of the crowded hustle-and-bustle shopping districts like Myeongdong, Garosu-gil offers a welcome change of pace, and is particularly suited for trend-spotting while latte-sipping. Ambling along, visitors may browse the designer boutiques the settle down at quaint restaurants that give the street a classy, privileged atmosphere. Art galleries further color these roads, as do the fashionable people that you are bound to see.
Apgujeong Rodeo Street ;
Apgujeong is Seoul's luxury fashion mecca. And in the center of Apgujeong's fashion world is Rodeo Street. The name and concept of Apgujeong's Rodeo Street takes after the Beverly Hill fashion street, Rodeo Drive. It's where fashion can be met first and on a daily basis, and where new trends and culture can be experienced. Rodeo Street is also filled with cafes, restaurants, and bars, making it fun to visit during the day and at night.
Itaewon: 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.

Reviews of this property
We spent and incredible weekend in Seoul! The apartment was like in the pictures, new and really comfortable. The location is only 5 minutes walking for one of the best places in the city for restaurants and clubs, but don't worry, it isn't noisy :)
And Tony was amazing, he helped us since the first moment we arrived to South Korea.
So we only can say thank you again for everything and we hope to see you soon!
Reviews for this host's other properties
Hi there! We had wonderful time during on our visiting in Seoul . the place we had near by kyungbokgung was exceptional in many ways . We feel thankful for the efforts from Chris and Tony. We are looking for to visit Seoul in some days again.meanwhile we have to say for now God bless both of you .
I've so many positive things to say, I hardly know where to begin.
I've never been to Seoul before, so I thought it might be tricky to get from airport to the apartment. Nope, Tony and Christine guided me in perfectly.
Tony waited for me and picked me up at the station. Tony is a bubbly, friendly soul and speaks English better than a Texan (probably a bad example).
Foolishly, I discovered that I didn't have an electrical adaptor for South Korean plugs (the two round pins). Tony instantly volunteered to take me shopping or bring one around for me as soon as he'd found one for me. Wow.
Do you want to see Seoul by night? Yes, yes I do. Tony showed me all the best places, full of interesting stories that only a local can share.
The apartment was luxurious. The architecture and the details gorgeous. Right in downtown Seoul. Christine clearly has a talent for design.
It is nice to stay somewhere luxurious, but it is the personal attention of the host which makes my experience so much more valuable.
Do the calculations. You'll never stay in an hotel again. The Wimdu idea just works so much better.
If you are going to Seoul, (if you aren't go anyway, it's a fantastic place) don't bother with the hand-wringing and the painful cost-quality-location-service analysis of hotels. Just click "Spacious apartment in Seoul" and chat with Christine and Tony. Christine and Tony, cheers!
My experience was perfect. Yours will be too.
