Located near Hongik Subway Station Exit 3, Orbit (올빛) is a cafe and guesthouse combined into one place. The guesthouse itself have 9 rooms designed with pink and marble aesthetics and the cafe area is on the ground floor of the building. I didn’t stay at the guesthouse. I was exploring this area and suddenly attracted by the delicious smell coming out from the kitchen of a nearby Chinese restaurant. When I was checking the restaurant out, I spotted this white building at the end of an alley next to it.
I think Orbit has a really nice design for a guesthouse. It feels, young, modern, and definitely instagrammable. And even if you’re not staying there, the cafe is a nice place to hang out at. I was there on a nice spring afternoon. The weather was just perfect to sit outside, at that’s exactly what I did. Ordered my croissant and ice early grey milk tea and took an afternoon break while waiting for my friend to come. And oh, by the way, they have this swing that they installed in front of the cafe that makes a good photo op ;)
