The Grand Hyatt Seoul certainly lived up to the "Grand" part of its name! I stayed here for 3 nights in early May after a 22 year absence from visiting Korea on business -- always staying at this hotel--the former Hyatt Regency on Namsan Mountain. For this "reunion tour" which was a mini weekend vacation, I took a room on...

Sitting atop Itaewon - a pretty steep 10~15min walk-up from the main drag - this old (has been around awhile but in good shape) stand-by is, especially for the business traveler, a solid option and perhaps the best choice in the area. The property is relatively large with couple of outdoor tennis courts, a fairly large outdoor pool. Exec lounge...

I arrived on an early night and although the room was not ready, I was provided access to the humongous spa to freshen up. The lobby was impressive which added to my expectation of a large room, though I was disappointed when I finally got the room. It was clean and functional but much smaller than other Grand Hyatts that...

This hotel is typical Grand Hyatt but it is starting to show its age. Good location with great views from the terrace. Rooms are spacious and have everything you need. Plenty of dining options available and the bar downstairs had a great band playing the nights we were there making for a fun finish to the day.

My partner and i didn't fell like we were welcomed here. I don't want to say too much because we already made our voice heard with management, but i think others might want to know that the staff might give you funny looks and thats rich since we paid more then 300usd a night.

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.
