We spent 4 nights in IP Boutique while visiting Seoul in July 2015. Our room was very nice, modern and quiet. Service was also good and very friendly. It's very easy to go around different areas of the city because the Itaewon metro station is nearby. There's also a lot of different bars and restaurants just a few steps from... More

Good room with all mod cons, helpful and informative staff. The location would be tough to beat, it is right in the heart of the action without being noisy. The team were very good at helping people navigate their way around the city.

This is an amazing boutique hotel in Itaewon. Stayed here a couple of times and it always makes me smile. From reception with its big adult swing seats to the darkened corridors, to the rooms which are all unique. The rooms are super comfortable and modern and I love staying here!

Great Hotel, the staff were very helpful and lots of restaurants nearby. Subway is only about 300metres from the hotel. If you travel from Incheon Airport by subway, you only need to transfer line once at Gongdeok and take line 6 to Itaewon.

The room was comfortable with modern eclectic décor (maybe Philippe Starck-ish), although seemed a bit worn. The bathroom was brightly lit with lighting integrated into the walls. Located in the heart of Itaewon, currently a hot neighborhood to hang out in, with lots of cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs. It was packed on a Friday night. In the winding streets... More

Quirky and interesting, in the heart of bustling Itaewon. The service is good and there are lots of nice features throughout the hotel. People stay here for its cool design and location and if you Instagram your hotel you'll love this place!

Staying in Itaewon

Neighborhood 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.
