Very nice hotel. Awesome decoration. Very close to food and bars. The LINE store is also across the street. If you are leaving back to incheon airport I do not recommend taking the shuttle across the street takes a very long time. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in korea.

The hotel had improved and looked much better than during my last visit. The room was cleaner and in good condition. The Front Office staff spoke good English and were helpful. I accidentally left valuable in the lobby, and the staff took immediate effort to locate me and returned the item. I sincerely appreciated their services.

This hotel was very unique! The front desk staff was very helpful and spoke English very well. I was a solo female traveler on this trip visiting friends and felt very safe. The hotel is very close to the metro (just a short walk) so it is very easy to get anywhere in the the city. You are in walking...

Nice located hotel! But rooms need renovation and the carpets should be replaced everywhere in room. Terrible noisy from night club in basement on week-end. The concierge refused to call for taxi twice: 1. On Sunday (saying they can not call for taxi on week-end) 2. On Monday 4am (saying it's too early for taxi) Luckily there are always many...

I thought the rooms would be modern and sophisticated based on the photos on their website, however the decor is dated and the carpet is verging on shabby. It's convenient having English speaking staff, however most of the hotel guests are tourists and very few locals would stay here. Itaewon is quite centrally located and a short subway ride from...

After a week of sleeping in a bunkhouse with other people, I was in desperate need of a quiet, dark room. The IP Hotel was perfect. The staff were very helpful at check in, assisted me with directions to the metro as well as local restaurants. When I had trouble calling a cab they were also ready to assist. My...

Very central, easy to find and close to subway. Friendly staff, clean and modern rooms. Despite it is in the heart of the city, rooms are very silent and soundproof; no disturbance from outside or from other rooms. Room service is neat too.

Cannot beat the area since it's in the heart of Itaewon. Compact, polite, clean and overtly styled with a combination of Luis Viton and Manga graphic novels. Good restaurant in hotel for breakfast and millions of restaurants and bars just outside. Cool shopping trips of the area. Have fun.

Situated right in the middle of Itaewon close to restaurants and shops. The hotel is modern with interesting artwork in the lobby. The room was just ok. It might be too modern for my taste, with mirror walls and funky decor. Not the cleanest hotel I have been to, but good for the price. I would recommend it if you...

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.
