I stayed at this guest house for two nights with a friend who is a Korean speaker. She did all the talking with the owner as she had very limited English. We were shown a very simple and clean room.

Staying in Sinsa / Garosugil

Neighborhood Profile
Sinsa / Garosugil
Trendy, chic, fashionable – these are just some of the words that sum up Sinsa and the neighborhood of Garosugil within it. In particular, Garosugil has emerged recently to be one of Seoul’s most popular neighborhoods; from the latest haute cuisine to what’s next in haute fashion, the restaurants, boutiques, and shops here tend to spark trends quickly spreading nationwide. It’s a magnet for celebrities, fashion industry titans, and Seoul’s elite and elite-aspiring, although some claim soaring real estate prices have led to a decrease in Garosugil’s independent charm. Still, it continues to remain one of the hottest and hippest areas in Seoul, so it’s best when visiting to make sure you’re dressed and looking the part.
