We stayed here for 1 night and the room had a very modern design. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was really nice. But the room was a bit dirty and the towels had stains. Overall the hotel is located quite near the subway station and the "party street" of Itaewon. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you don't...

Stayed here twice, very trendy chic hotel. Clean facility and the staff is always friendly. It's in a great location with coffee shops along the side to include Starbucks. I would definitely stay again. Books up rather quickly.

Easy check in. I asked for a quiet room and I did get a quiet floor/room. The room was beautiful all in white with a mural on the wall albeit a tad small. The bidet was nice and flushed automatically. The bed was big and comfortable. The chair in the room was comfy. Wifi worked excellent. Checking out was easy...

While this comment is on one of the receptionists only (a lady), she made me write this review. Her attitude was so bad that I was surprised she was being assigned a client-facing position. I was asking the ways to go to the airport, she showed me a paper slip which shows the bus schedule with the price. However, I...

Hotel was perfectly located on the main road through Itaewon so all of the nightlife and things to do in that area were walkable. The hotel itself is just as great as the pictures make it out to be. The bathroom was my favorite part of the hotel, the lights and all the glass made it feel very contemporary. I...

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.

Staying in Itaewon

Neighbourhood 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.
