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

Stopped overnight here on business. The room was nice, fairly basic but comfortable and functional. Our room was situated over the pool and the night activities and the doof doof music made it rather noisy until late at night. Free wifi throughout. What makes this hotel really good is it's proximity to the Itaewon shopping district and the nightlife. Not... More

Rooms smell of damp and mould, carpets stained, curtains frayed, dirty glasses left in room. Tv broken. Noisy. Nothing in mini bar. Outdated and sub standard fixtures and fittings. Would not recommend this hotel at all. Only pleasant aspect are the staff who are friendly.

4/2004 Stayed at the Hamilton for about 10 days visiting my Nephew who was stationed there. had a great time, the room was very spacious, clean and the staff was very good. However, the bathroom was a bit dated and some rusty spots where visible. There were always fresh coffee bags on the counter and the beds were turned daily.... More

Location is great - just beside Metro station. Lots of English speaking shops around. A few Indian restaurants are there nearby and also other varieties of foods are available. So you have many choices which is very important being a foreigner. I have a major complaint about the Breakfast menu - it was same for all four days !!!! Pl.... More

Would not stay here again. Kettle in room but no coffee or Milk. It's black tea or nothing. The rooms are so old and smelly. Could not sleep due to noise from the street and their swimming pool. Pool parties are a common thing. These people are not staying at the hotel. They must rent out to locals for parties.... More

Stayed there for a day then switched to another hotel. The area is lively and fun but you can't get any sleep until after 2am because of all the noise. We were on the 6th floor but it felt like we were in the middle of the street. Needs renovation big time!
