We went to their outdoor pool on a Monday afternoon. The first locker I got had a female toiletry with blood on it, so I had to ask for another locker. There were people smoking in the change room and restroom. There was no place to lie down around the pool. It was over crowded, unhygienic and noisy. We decided... More

I got lucky because I won a two-night stay at Hamilton Hotel and two tickets to Ultra Korea Music Festival. Thanks, Asia Music Fest for the prizes! Anyway, on to the review. It's easy to get to the hotel from Incheon International Airport. I rode an airport limousine bus (# 6030) and it stopped right in front of the hotel.... More

The hotel has been refurbished. Room is excellent. There was some noise but we closed the window had the airconditioner on high, and slept through the night. The hotel is close to the subway and for my handicap having an elevator close to the hotel to get to the subway is a great plus point. There are a lot of... More

You will love this Hotel. Big room with comfortable bed. The best thing about this Hotel is that it is located at the Itaewon street. The whole street is like a shopping paradise. And the hotel itself is linked next to a mall. Easy food hunt, even for muslim travellers. You can find a few Halal restaurant just a few... More

Where all the foreigners go. Nice rooms with ensuite bathrooms; dining room and breakfast buffet. Easy to find, close to Itaewon subway station, many restaurants and shops. There is an adjacent shopping mall very familiar with selling Korean souvenirs to foreign travelers. Staff speaks good English.

This hotel is literally in the center of a clubbing district. It's quiet in the day, but at night, it's like a sea of people. Unfortunately i was there on oct31, and the crowd didn't die town till the morning. The hotel itself feels rather old and not too spacious. They have double windows so it helps with the noise....

Hamilton is perfectly situated right above the Itaewon metro station. So getting around town is super easy! Getting there from the airport is easy too because the Airport Limousine No. 6030 (which is essentially a luxury coach) takes you right there. Itaewon is the more "Westernized" part of Seoul. It's a great place for shopping with tons of shops, restaurants... More

I have stayed 2 night in this hotel in mid of October 2014. The hotel location is good as near to find any cafes, cosmetic shops and 24 hours convenience store. There was also a bank ATM in hotel lobby with foreign languages option. I was so excited as the bank ATM has Indonesian language as well. The room facility... 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.
