Itaewon hotels are dispersed all throughout this area in Seoul that primarily caters to the needs of the some 30,000 U.S. military personnel located at the Yongsan Garrison. Because of the presence of the military personnel and regular influx of international travelers, you will find more international restaurants per capita than in most other parts of the city. It is not common to find an Italian or Mexican restaurant in many parts of Seoul, whereas this is altogether common in Itaewon. Besides a wide variety of restaurants, bars, and clubs, there is also a lot to choose from on the Itaewon lodging scene. Some of the best hotels in Itaewon Seoul are relatively inexpensive, especially considering the wide range of amenities they offer.
The Hamilton Hotel is without a doubt one of the finest Itaewon hotels, featuring a range of pleasing amenities including a bar/lounge, restaurant, and nightclub located within the hotel, a fitness center, swimming pool, and full-service spa. Although there is a lot of great shopping nearby at places such as the Dongdaemun Market, Lotte World, and the COEX Shopping Mall, you can also enjoy shopping onsite as well. The 24-hour concierge staff is equipped to help arrange tours, suggest a restaurant, or basically assist with whatever you may need during your stay. The Hamilton Hotel is an Itaewon accommodation that is centrally located, affordable, and very comfortable.
The Crown Hotel is another of the Itaewon hotels where you will find a full range of amenities as well as excellent location. This particular Itaewon accommodation is located just a few minutes from the War Memorial and the shopping and entertainment district, but is far enough off of the beaten path that you will be able to enjoy a tranquil and relaxing night’s sleep after an exciting day or night on the town. Some of the standard amenities at this hotel include onsite dining, swimming pool, spa, fitness center, and 24-hour concierge service. It is not one of the newest hotels in Seoul so, even though you will be able to enjoy a wide array of amenities, you are likely to secure relatively inexpensive rates.
