★ LOCATION, LOCATION & LOCATION ★
￭ THE SURROUNDINGS
Our flat is located in the core of uptown (Gang-buk) where all the festivals and/or events (your must-go spots) takes place every day. There are a hundred of reasons to love JONGRO. To illustrate just a few, there are a bunch of places like royal palaces, national museums, art galleries, cafes, all kinds of restaurants & bars, and very interesting shops, etc (as shown in the pictures) that you can visit just by simply walking around. You can just name it, you will have it within an arm’s reach. JONGRO is basically a long avenue that stretches all the way from the City Hall to Dongdaemun (the Mecca of shopping 24hours), the avenue is divided into 6 main sections, which are called Jongro 1ga to 6ga. From any of these JONGRO's sections, you can easily walk to
- Cheonggye Stream which will lead you to Dongdaemun & further
- Insadong within around 15minutes and even walk to Daehak-ro within another 15 minutes if you're in jongro3ga,
- Samcheongdong, Gyeongbok palace, Gwanghwamun as well, all within walking distance around 10 minutes or so.

Reviews of this property
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.

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!
