Blacklink real review
Highly recommended for both convenience, reliability and customer service communications considering none of us in our group spoken any Korean. With at least 6 cases between the four of us excluding hand luggage, a really early check-in for at least one of us and the airport at least an hour away, we decided to share a cab as we weren't sure if the airport bus/trains ran as early as 5:30am. Making the reservation online was easy and all email communications were clear. I was worried that they would not be able to find the building as we were not staying in a hotel and building works outside meant the driver wasn't able to stop directly outside. However, after sending them a couple of photos, from my phone and telling them where we would be waiting for them, were acknowledged and passed on to Mr Lee, our driver, who arrived promptly and was very helpful in getting our cases into his clean and comfy vehicle. I was impressed that we were also informed of who our driver was, along with his picture, and the vehicle and registration details.
We had a party of 5 people + luggage. The car was clean and spacious. The driver even came 30 min earlier than the time initially requested. We were very pleased with this service. Awesome service and very professional.
This is the best offer right now when it comes to taxi services for foreigners in Seoul. I managed to make reservation on Saturday 4PM for Sunday 9AM, which is less than 24h and without knowing Korean. I must mentioned that all similar services were not operating due to weekend or need some Korean in order to make a reservation. Moreover, the price was not very high comparing the service I have receive. I would like to add that I had a bit unusual reservation because I was travelling with 4 big boxes. The driver was very polite, few minutes before time and had communicative English.
I thought that the service was excellent! Well done! Thanks!
This actually was very easy to use. My friend and I are both 18 and arrived in Incheon at 11 pm so we wanted a driver to pick us up as opposed to taking a late bus/train. As soon as we exited the main terminal our driver was standing with my name on a sign. The drive was quick and there was hardly any traffic probably because of the time it was. Our driver made sure that we arrived at the right place before leaving us there.
Returning to the airport after our trip we used the AREX since it was during the day. I would definitely use black link again if we arrived at night or had a lot of luggage with us.
itaewon (station) information
There are many restaurants in Itaewon serving cuisine that are not widely available in Korea, such as those from India, Pakistan, Turkey, Southeast Asia, Britain, Germany, Italy, France, Portugal, Spain and Mexico. Essentially, it's known as "Western Town," reminiscent of many Chinatowns in Western nations.
Itaewon, along with Insadong and Seoul Tower, is one of the most popular places in Seoul for tourists. Major hotels such as the Grand Hyatt and local landmark Hamilton Hotel are here as well as dozens of shops and services aimed at tourists. High-quality leather products are sold at reasonable prices (though haggling is expected) as well as traditional Korean souvenirs.
Counterfeit goods and clothing items are ubiquitous and of varying qualities. Some authentic goods that are only produced in Korea for the international market, as well as some authentic imports are also available. Itaewon is known for its clothesmakers who produce custom-made suits.
Aside from the local businesses, there is a rich community of business owners, including a pie shop owner from the U.S.A. (Tartine), authentic American burgers, a wine bar, an Austrian delicatessen (with an array of cheeses and meats), a veterinarian/pet groomer with an excellent reputation, a chiropractor from Oregon, doctors and nurses, pharmacists and grocery shop owners.
Many foreigners in Korea reside within or near Itaewon, as well as some of the richest Korean businesspeople, including Lee Kun-Hee, the chairman of Samsung group.
