Jane & Arnaud’s rooftop apartment in Hongdae is perfect for gatherings both large and small
Every month, we introduce guesthouses that have a specific trait: a history, a peculiar design concept or simply an outstanding mood. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that many are located in Hongdae, a neighborhood of great creative energy. This cultural cauldron is again our destination as we visit a place you will surely want to book the moment you see it.
If you are a family looking for a larger place to relax, or a group of friends in search of both a great place to rest or in which to host an open-air gathering, you’ll want to stay at Jane & Arnaud’s.
Situated in a small alley, it’s quiet. Located in the middle of trendy Hongdae, it’s convenient. And blessed with a large rooftop, it’s perfect for large gathering such as parties.
Whether you’d just like to lounge around with a book on the soft sofa in the warm light of the last afternoon or share a conversation and drinks with friends at night, the roof offers an ideal venue.
The space gives you a sense of complete isolation, a feeling of privacy that is rare in Seoul. What more, since you occupy the entire top floor and roof of the new building, the space is fully yours. With an excellent ramen restaurant downstairs and a plethora of cafés and restaurants within walking distance, Jane & Arnaud’s ensures that good food is the last thing you’ll need to worry about.
The owners, Jane and Arnaud, are a Belgian-Korean couple who have traveled around the globe. This means they know what the traveler needs. And after about a decade living in Hongdae, they also have the low down on the fascinating neighborhood. Their impeccable service will make you feel as if you’re at a five-star hotel. Your comfort is their number-one priority.
Every detail of the apartment has been meticulously chosen, producing a space you can enjoy as well as in which to relax. It’s a five-star hotel, only with a lot more personality.
Book this place early as it is very much in demand.
