Great desk staff, but otherwise poor. Paper- thin walls, stained carpets (though otherwise clean), no breakfast buffet. Housekeeping never replenished drinking water, mini bar, laundry bag etc. Porn set decor.. Really hideous_see photo .

Situated right in the middle of Itaewon close to restaurants and shops. The hotel is modern with interesting artwork in the lobby. The room was just ok. It might be too modern for my taste, with mirror walls and funky decor. Not the cleanest hotel I have been to, but good for the price. I would recommend it if you...

Despite this hotel is well located in the city and modern, it is not very clean and above all there is a club discotheque just below, which makes that it is impossible to sleep due to the noise and even the smells in your room.

Located in Itaewon, surrounded by a large verity of restaurants and clubs. Near the Itaewon market. Easy access from the Inchon airport with the Airport shuttle bus and near the fast and modern tube system. The hotel was recently renovated, it is modern and well maintained. They in-house restaurant is still in a temporary location and currently serves only breakfast.

We loved visiting Seoul, but were not welcomed the best at this hotel. We took the train and got stuck in a down pour from the stop to the hotel. We walked into the hotel drenched and the ladies working the counter were not very friendly or accommodating to us. It was our first time in Korea and they could...

Great location. Friendly staff. Cute rooms with comfy beds. Airport bus stops right by it. Lots to do around the hotel. Club located inside the hotel so choose high rooms. City view is nice from the corner units. Didn't get a chance to eat at the cafe in the hotel but menu looked good.

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.
