Reviewed 16 November 2016

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.

Perfectly located in the heart of Itaewon this hotel is close to most restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Rooms are OK, clean as well as the bathroom. Staff is OK, not exceptional. The rooms hallway has an unpleasant smell

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.

As per the title its convenient for a short walk to all the action (restaurants, coffee shops, bars, clubs and the subway). The foyer is narrow and cramped sharing a fenced off area for buffet breakfast . There is a small 4 person sofa near reception for waiting/seating. We had a two-bed room that i found cramped.

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.

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.
