About this listing

Hanam, geographically at the center of Seoul, is known for its convenient transportation reaching anywhere in Gangnam(southern part below Han river) and Gangbuk(northern part above Han river) area within 30 minutes. So if your're planning to look around Seoul efficiently, this is the perfect place for you :) especially if you want advice from local who's been actually lived there for quite some time!

My place in Hanam is literally 30 seconds walk to Hanganjin station(line#6), 2 min to Bus stop(including Limousine stop directly to Incheon airport!). Though the neighborhood is full of hip spots my place is at the edge of residential area which guarantees cozy and quiet environment when you want to rest in the room.

Cultural attractions/Sight seeings:
- BlueSqaure (30 sec walk)
- Hyundai Music library (5 min walk)
- Leeum museum (10 min walk)
- Itaewon (12 min walk)
- Namsan tower (10 minutes bus ride)


What the neighborhood offers:
- literally surrounded by hip places like unique cafes, designers' shops, famous restaurants and bars (I can let you know all the cool places that are not yet introduced in the tour guide! :D)
- 8 min walk to Itaewon nightlife
- 3 min walk to Namsan park
- 20 min walk to Han river; the weather is perfect for chicken&beer at Han river side these days! ;)

The space

My place in Hanam is known as very hip place full of unique attractions including unique cafes, designer shops, hip bars, famous restaurants, museums, musical theater, and night life :)

Guest access

You'll be using a spacious room- big enough for couple- and sharing kitchen, living room and bathroom.
Everything you'd need- washing machine, cookers, microwave, new clean towels, etc. will be ready at right spots but don't hesitate to let me know when you can't find them! :)

Interaction with guests

I've been living in this area for quite long and know all the cool places around here! ;)
You tell me what you're into: unique cafes, designer shops, hip bars, famous restaurants or night life- then I'll tell you all the names that are not yet on tour books! ;)
I will be out working weekdays between 9:30am and 7pm(or later sometimes)
but totally down for hanging out together either at night or over weekend. Let me know! :)

Other things to note

You can use the fridge as much as you want- kitchen is all yours! :)
(Only aside from the single malt whisky I've got as my birthday present LOL.)

Ah Yeon Elysia was a great host. The apartment was clean and it was accurately described. It was easy to communicate with her. She always responded promptly when I asked for help. Check-in was swift. Location is fantastic! I had a lot of fun eating and dancing in Itaewon. The neighborhood is so much looser and diverse than the rest of Seoul. The value was also exceptional. My stay at Elysia's place was fantastic! I highly recommend staying at Elysia's.

Elysia's place was so clean, safe, and cute! The room is fantastic and huge. Even though we didn't get to see Elysia much during our stay, she was readily available through (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)/(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)/Line. Her directions also made it extremely easy to find the place. When we finally met Elysia, she was nothing short of an amazing host, with a lot of knowledge and wisdom. One small thing to consider is that her place is a few floors up and there's no elevator access so if you have a ton/large luggage, it may be a struggle dragging it up but still doable! I would highly recommend staying at her place. Thank you for accommodating us!

The house is amazing, it's beautiful and the room is huge! The wifi is fast which helped us a lot, and the aircon was great to be able to come back home to. The area is PERFECT. There's a subway right outside, and a huge park behind us that has some beautiful trails to hike. It's right by Itaewon which is a massive street with trendy cafes, shops, restaurants and bars. We found it to be the best spot to stay and were so happy. Ely is full of knowledge on Seoul, where to go, what to see and where to eat. She showed us lots of quirky things to do that travelers wouldn't necessarily discover for themselves, which I'm grateful for. If you're coming to Seoul, stay here, you won't regret it.

第一次去首尔,担心会找不到路,就去问房东姐姐,姐姐就把详细路线发给我了。机场过去很方便,家离地铁站出口非常近,也非常好找。房东姐姐漂亮又温柔。到了后问了很多问题,都一一耐心解答。房间和照片上一样,干净又整洁,重点是很温馨,每天玩得很累回去,都有回自己家的感觉。因为每天都玩到很晚回去,姐姐都睡了,但姐姐很贴心的都有给我们留着灯。很愉快的一次入住,如果有机会再到首尔,还是会选择这里。
