If you want to be close to Itaewon - and who doesn't? - this is the hotel to chose. Much nicer than the Hamilton Hotel, much better location that the Capital, this hotel has its own airport lim bus stop, is well-staffed, nicely decorated, and it's walking distance to the great restaurants that make Itaewon the destination it is.
The only drawbacks? Traffic noise was very noticeable from my 8th floor rooms. Also, as other reviewers have noted, this hotel probably has the darkest hallways of any hotel anywhere in the galaxy. I've seen sci fi movies where the alien spaceships are more brightly lit.
Back on the plus side of things, the hotel is quite delightfully quirky. The bathrooms are very nice. The TV channel selection is much better than other Seoul hotels I've tried. Wifi worked great. The breakfast buffet was nice, as were the swings in the lobby (not making that up.)
Definitely worth a visit. Bring earplugs and a flashlight, and you'll have nothing bad to say.More
