Checked into Hamilton Hotel for 4 days.
Location is very convenient - just directly above the Itaewon train station.
Many eateries along and opposite of the hotel.
Rooms - Stepped into the room and it smells of cigarette most likely by the previous guest though it was suppose to be non-smoking rooms... Requested for a double bed but got 2 singles instead... Out of 4 electric socket only one was working and the one that was working was also 'limping' though I used an adapter.
The room has an LCD TV, an electric kettle, high-tech switch system where you can switch off the lights from your bedside. Air con control was not that good as one of the night I was feeling so warm despite setting the temperature to 20degrees!
Design of the room was quite old fashion compared to many other hotels that I have stayed.
Room cleaning service was good, at least the room was clean.
Bathroom - No toothbrush/toothpaste provided. All that was provided was a pair of comb, 2 bars of soap, 1 shower cap and some body lotion which I did not use. The lucky thing was... towels still provided! Therefore if you decided to stay here, please bring your own toiletries!!!
The streets were quite noisy even at almost 2am, worst when it was weekend! Many foreigners and locals hung around the vicinity of the hotel as I heard it was some clubbing area where people party. Not much of a problem sleeping as by the time I reach the hotel, I was dead tired from all the shopping and walking.
There is a water dispenser near the lift area which dispenses hot and cold water.
Lobby area - There are maps for tourist which is quite useful and it introduces some of the restaurants in myeodong area which are quite nice. Show the advertisements and you can get discount off your dining!
Hotel reception - On the first day when I checked-in, the receptionist was not so friendly (did not smile).... On the day of check-out the receptionist (another lady) was better. We extended the room another half day until 6pm as we were taking a night flight. Reasonable price of 50,000won.
Overall I would say that the location is good but if you prefer somewhere less noisy, you might not want to be here.
