Gatgaji Bookstay (itaewon)
The Airbnb I stayed at in April was called "Gatgaji Bookstay," and I'd like to tell you about it now.
Gatgaji Bookstay is located on a hill in Itaewon with a view of Namsan Tower.
This picture shows the steepness of the road on the way back from a meal in Haebangchon.
Even though the incline is steeper than anticipated, the view of Namsan is unobstructed.
The orange-roofed home can be found at the address provided by the host.
Upon entering, you will find a tiny front yard.
A Bookstay appears to be identified by the presence of a charming pencil displayed prominently on the entrance door.
You'll find a display cabinet just inside the entrance.
A pleasant first impression is created by the incense and music coming from the Yamaha speakers. Indoor shoes are required.
Only with a connected iPod can I listen, however, I must say, the selections are excellent.
For the duration of my stay, I relied solely on the saved playlists.
There were several cooking appliances, including a microwave and a tiny sink, hidden behind the glass case.
The beans for the coffee and the leaves for the tea were provided.
Glasses of all shapes and sizes, from water goblets to wine chalices, lined the shelf.
A cutting board, wine opener, and cutlery set for two are also provided.
Unless it required much cooking, the kitchen had everything needed to make simple meals.
A cozy living area awaits you behind the sink. This area was furnished with a single sofa, a chair for rest, a bookshelf, and a beam projector.
Considering that it was a bookstay, there were books everywhere.
I appreciated finding Seul-ah Lee's "Body and Mind Training" on the bookshelf.
The fashionable plants and bookcases, which looked as if they had been designed and built by the owner, created a harmonious.
Plants may be found just about anywhere.
With the help of the humidifier's mood lights, of course. All of the conditions, including the lighting, temperature, and humidity, were ideal.
I was craving Maddux Pizza so much that I ordered three big pieces.
The restrooms are also rather beautiful. It had plenty of spare toilet paper and soap.
During my stay, I spent most of my time in my bedroom. When you're on your alone, a queen-size bed might feel like a king-size.
Keeping a record of your life, no matter how small, would be a great thing to do.

Before checking out on the final day, I lay in bed and wished the clock would stop.
A folding door on the side of the small aisle led out to the yard; it was a shame I couldn't have left it open while I lounged with a cup of coffee and a good book.
Probably just read a bunch of books if I go back there. Being a small establishment, it's recommended that you visit alone. People who need some time to themselves should definitely check this out.
