I was very impressed with my stay at the IP Boutique Hotel in Itaewon. I needed to be in Seoul for an event and wanted a place cost by with a better price point. The hotel has a great location for shopping, dining, sightseeing and nightlife.

My first visit to Seoul and on business. Wasn't expecting much except for the cold. IP (Imperial Palace) Boutique Hotel is located in the Itaewon area. Due to its proximity to embassies and the American compound, the area has a somewhat international flavor. Restaurants and shops with cuisines from all over the world. The hotel itself looks classy. The lobby... More

Pros: Amazing staff. Jordan and Sally went out of their way to make sure our stay was pleasant. We had organised a JSA day tour which started a 9am from a different hotel. We slept through our alarm/wake up call. We got a second call saying we had missed the tour; at that point we were devastated that we were... More

A very comfortable hotel right near the metro which makes it very easy to get around a wonderful city. Situated on a busy street the Saturday night noise was abit distracting but made it entertaining. Walking distance to restaurants-highly recommend TWO BROZ for non-greasy hamburger and chips. The staff were excellent. Very friendly, very helpful (booked us a tour the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on a long weekend break to explore Seoul. Excellent location - airport bus drop-off and pick-up just across the road, 5 minute walk to Itaewon metro station, lots of bars and restaurants for night life. Hotel reception is very funky, they've tried really hard with the 'design' concept. Room was nice with comfortable bed and... More

Hotel is normally expensive, but if able to grab a last minute deal that brings the price closer to the 100 USD mark, do it. Far end of Itaewon's entertainment district. Lobby is swanky and has plush swings. Showers offer marginal privacy with a mix of frosted and clear glass. Best for couples.

This hotel is ever been the most unique hotel I've ever been.

I've stayed here a night with my friend. The windows were filed with dust. Every time I touched the curtain to open the window, I wanted to cry because of its dirt. The worst thing is a bathroom. There was some hair on a towel and the floor. It was really disgusting.
