Renting this apartment allowed me to set my own schedule. It is great value for money as well as being situated in a great place for all local transport connections.
The owner, Kelly, was amazingly helpful as I arrived very late on a Saturday evening (around 11pm) and had to leave to catch a plane the following Saturday at 6.30am! Nothing was too much trouble for her and she offered to meet up if I got bored anytime. One evening there was a change to my busy schedule and she lived up to her promises.
It's not in the middle of downtown Seoul and Korean apartments are not enormous but it beat staying in a hotel and offered more independence than a B&B or homestay. mehr
