Staff is rude, no WiFi in rooms (you have to use the wifi in the lobby, which is crowded with everyone else conned into staying here), rooms are seriously outdated, poor sound insulation, and far from convenience stores or any food/drink. The cafe's prices are OUTRAGEOUS and totally not worth it. For what you're paying, you'd expect more.

First time in Korea and this hotel make me feel like hell. Hotel outside looks ok, even it was built in the 80's and updated in the early 2000. But the room is like hell. It is extremely small, with stupid big furniture. Wifi only in the lobby, no electric adaptor, they can sell you one for 1000 won =$1,... More

It's not extremely expensive by Korean standards but.. No WiFi in the room, no kettle, no cups, no coffee/tea, no shower gel/shampoo, no water in the room (there is a dispenser in the corridor however), aircon is poor and the TV has so much interference you can't watch it. Also it needs someone to clean out the bathroom drains -... More

As other reviewers have mentioned, the furniture in the room is rather dated. The room was clean, as were the bedsheets and towels. No problem with the shower (hot water available throughout the day). A hairdryer was available in the drawer. No complimentary tea/coffee sachets or jug-kettle. However, a hot/cold water dispenser is available on every floor, so you can... More

The hotel interior design is old fashioned, especially the room which look like you are in the middle of mid 19th century. However, the room was clean and the shower was pretty good with hot water. Cabs were accessible at the main road. Staffs were just average standard, however, there were a few of them could speak good Japanese language.... More

As reviewed by others, the hotel is old. The lobby looks fine though. The room key card is not the latest kind, with punch holes on it. The door felt like a bomb blast door. The room is really dated, with furniture designs dated more than ten years ago. The CRT TV (not LCD/LED) has limited channels, mostly Korean channels.... More

Arrived very late and spent a night here to catch a return flight the next day. There was no service to speak of - no porter, no greetings and a not too bright lobby to welcome us. The room smelled stale and the furnitures looked dull. It wasn't a huge room to dance to my Chemical Brothers too! Fortunately, the... More

I stayed for 2 nights. The decoration of the room needs a serious update and the bed was really uncomfortable. The walls were very thin, It did not help that I was sandwiched between 2 occupied rooms, so I could hear the bathroom tabs and toilet flashes from one room, and other guests talking in the other room. There is... More

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.
