A decent hotel for a short stay in Itaewon. Rooms were simple butt that is all you need if using as a base to see Seoul. Not too far a walk from the station and the action of Itaewon - bars and restaurants are all a few minutes walk away. For sure I would return.

Clean room, very confortable and quiet. The hotel is in one of the most english-friendly place in Korea with lots of bars and restaurants of all kind. Very easy to get to from the airport using the bus 6030. We were able to check in at 10am for no extra charge, which is always welcome after a night flight.

IP Boutique Hotel is a nice place to stay in Seoul.. located in Itaewon and easy access to bars and clubs. Airport bus is just a walk away. Rooms are clean and tidy. Coffee bean is just a throw stone away from the hotel. Food establishments are also easy to find around the hotel.

The hotel is along a busy shopping street. A lot of shops and restaurants nearby. unfortunately there was no bell boy service.

I knew I was going to have a let down after my experience in Wuxi at a great hotel and that's exactly what happened. This place is located in the heart of many bars and clubs and restaurants and if I had more time I would spend some time enjoying more of it. Good hotel spot. The gym is ok.

I was in Itaewon and had missed the last bus home, so needed a place to stay. IP Boutique hotel came to mind, and I dropped in to ask if they had a vacancy. With fast service from the staff, I was soon booked into a room. I knew that they charged a lot, but for my more than 100000... More

Walking distance from subway. Feels that the location similar to Chicago. Not the most high quality interior but good enough. All amenities are good for a business traveler. Just 2 subway stop away from harley shop. Feels a little too arty for me. Nice lobby. Probably could had been more decent if they could brighten the hotel.

We booked this hotel because it is near to our church in Itaewon area. This hotel was fine, interesting theme, and has clean and spacious room. There's a lot of restaurants and bars nearby that's why the place is crowded at night. If you are a party person, then this hotel is for you.

The hotel looks nice from the outside but when you get to your room it starts to smell like dirty socks. The hallways are dark and the doors are made of light gauge metal so you can hear every one who comes to their room. When you walk in the hallways you can hear everyone's conversations too.

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.
