I stay in Seoul frequently in different parts of the city and thought I'd try this, as a classic anchor building of Itaewon. It's right by the subway entrance. I asked the concierge to write an address in Korean for the taxi driver, and he said "I can write this but it is quicker to take the subway"... and for...

The hotel is right at Itaewon station which means that it is easy to get any where. If you are looking for Halal food, fret not. Plenty of small cafes and shops too. However, the room is pretty warm during the cold season. A/C starts only in May, so we had to ask for a fan (we're from a hot...

Good: (1) Room is new. (2) Very spacious room. (3) Housekeeping crew does a fast and good job daily. (4) Hotel is surrounded by 24h cafes like Holly's, Nescafe Cafe and Paris Baguette is just a few steps from the main entrance. These are places you can get your breakfast every day. (5) Lifts are responsive and you do not...

Having visited Seoul for the last 25 years this was the first time to stay in this hotel and I was pleasantly surprised. Whilst the lobby area does not inspire the rooms appear to have been recently refurbished and were clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated in the middle of Itaewon so very much in the centre of the...

Hotel rooms seem like they have recently been refurbished and and modern and clean. Location is perfect for subway and other transport connections. The hotel itself is located in the middle of all the nightlife with lots of restaurants in the streets behind and close by. Only fault was with the room heating which set itself to 26 degrees every...

Every taxi driver knows the Hamilton hotel, which stands in the Centre of Itaewon. Its a landmark but most people use as a meeting place to go onto the night spots in the laneways behind the hotel and main street. The Hotel itself has been renovated in the last few years and the rooms are quite clean and comfortable. Its...

Nice hotel. Clean. Close to shopping. Also too close to night clubs. We stayed on the 4th floor and the night club behind the hotel was too loud. It was hard to sleep. The staff were pleasant and helpful.

This hotel is pretty basic. For me, the only draw is how conveniently it is located in Itaewon. It is in the heart of Itaewon with plenty of restaurants, bars, shops all around. Itaewon is full of global cuisines from all over, but the area does not have the best authentic Korean food. The metro is right outside the hotel....

Staying in Itaewon

Neighbourhood Profile
Itaewon
Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison, Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here, trendy international restaurants dot the area alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest club venues. After dark, Itaewon comes into its own as one of Seoul’s top party scenes. The crowd is a fascinating patchwork of all backgrounds and identities, including a small but thriving Muslim community (centered on Korea’s sole mosque), the LGBT community (with a string of popular bars and clubs), and a wide range of ethnicities and cultures scattered around. Those seeking a quiet respite should head towards the eastern end, in Hannam-dong, which not only has one of Korea’s best art museums, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, but plenty of mid-range to upscale restaurants and cafes.
