rying to find CV residence initially especially after a long flight was pretty tiring and frustrating especially if there are no signs around . Luckily after several attempts, we just look up , - lo and behold the BIG sign on GV residence . The walk up the hill initially was not for those with weak knees or legs especially if you're carrying 2 big luggages .
But once there , met up with the concierge , Juinn ( hopefully , I got the name spelt correctly ) , was fantastic , her warmth and hospitality makes you feel at home. No to mention another staff by the name of Seon , as well as the cleaner ahjummas, GV residence , made us feel we're home .
The apartment comes with a washer and a kitchen , thoroughly clean.. For muslims , ideal place, as it is close to most of the halal restaurants in Itaewon .

At first, I was a little bit disappointed with GV Residence, but as the week progressed, I found it a great place from which to visit Seoul. The location in the Itaewon area is perfect for visiting this city, close to different city transportation options, close to tourist sites, abundance of food options close to very close by. We were pleased with the residence. The staff were helpful and friendly, The rooms were adequate for us. There was the issue of shower, but that was easily overcome. We would stay at the GV Residence again.

Room tip: If you don't like to climb too many floors, request first or second floor.

Stayed at GV Residence from 1st to 6th Oct 2016.

:
1.friendly, courteous staffs. Well verse in English.
2. Clean place.
3. Washing washer.
4. Induction cooker.
5. Toiletries.
6. (for Muslims) About 3 mins walking distance to Usadan-ro where there's plenty of halal foods, restaurants and central mosque there.
7. 3 mins walk to Itaewon subway station.

:
1. steep uphill slopes to get there. not for old people or people with difficulty in walking.
2. No elevator in the building. Probably can request for first floor. If not, you'll have to carry your own luggages.
3. Room is fairly small and compact. Ok with the price.
4. No iron and ironing board in the room as stated. Got them on our 4th day as they only have 5 sets as it were with other guests.

Very clean hotel, rooms are not as big as in the USA but still enough room. The staff was friendly and the front desk clerks all spoke english well. Nice down filled pillows and blankets plus plush, soft beds make this a very comfortable place to stay. Located close enough to the metro and on the bus line. The price was the cheapest on the strip in Itaewon and not sorry I stayed there.
