Location is excellent, close to subway, excellent restaurants and shopping all around hotel. Room furnishing are dated, but very clean and comfortable. Staff was excellent and very helpful. Internet worked well. It isn't a resort, but is just fine for business.

Located in the middle of Itaewon next to many Western restaurants and tourist shops. Great amenities and close to the subway station to travel to the rest of Seoul.

Location, location, location

You couldn't ask to be closer to the center of Itaewon. If you want to be near the restaurants and bars that Itaewon has to offer, then you're already there. The person I spoke to on the phone at the hotel was a bit rushed and therefore came off quite rude, but once I was there, everyone was very nice and helpful. Most of the hotel, like many of the businesses now in that area are smoke free, but I was able to get a top floor room that allowed me to smoke. The room and hotel were adequately clean.

Vatos Mexican Restaurant has awesome food, but is usually crowded. Showing up early, around 11:30 to 12:00 for lunch, is the best way to experience this place.

Time for an update

For the price of a Four Point by Sheraton or Double Tree by Hilton, you get basically a Motel 6 experience. The hotel is stuck in the 70s or 80s and the room is in poor condition. The staffs at front desk feel cold. Only highlight is its location, right next to the subway station. But again, it's an entertainment district so you will hear noises late into the night.

International area convenience

The Hamilton Hotel in Seoul is a convenient location for a stay in the international area away from downtown Seoul. The active nightlife there results in a lot of street noise, but the convenience to shopping, restaurants and other activities makes it worth the distraction. The Hamilton swimming pool opened during my stay, and the music during the afternoon is a bit much when the pool is right outside your window.

The best restaurants in the Itaewon area are generally on the second or third floors above the street.

Fantastic Family Get a way/ Reunion

We had a great time in Seoul and the place and people were kind. We were centrally located which made it all the better in terms of sightseeing and shopping! We loved the food and the cost was reasonable. The Hamilton Hotel met our expectations and we were impressed how clean and their services from front desk to house keeping was the best. I would love to come back and stay with them. Thanks for having our 5 short day seem like a week's stay only because they cared for us. CD California, USA

I noticed that the places to dine are all the same in terms of quality and cost. They all serve very healthy choices and you do acquire the taste for kimchee at a very short time, it's their appetizer! Try it!
