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

Near famous iteawon, good clubbing area, 5-min walk to the railway, just takes you 20-30 mins to famous myeongdong and dongtaemon.  Room rate is cheap - but if you don't mind their poor front desk service, it is definitely a good choice.

We stayed a few nights because The Crown Itaewon was close to our son's apartment and close to the location of his wedding (wedding hall at the War Memorial Museum). The room was a little cramped and too warm, but clean with very good housekeeping service. Being on the front, the road was too noisy to keep the window open... More
