Ultra-modern, unique boutique in Itaewon

Transformed after a major renovation, the IP Boutique Hotel Itaewon is now a visually stunning modern enclave located in the global village of Itaewon. Vibrant colors, pop-inspired art and sleek furnishings surround visitors at each turn, establishing the property as a Seoul hot spot. The hotel sits under the slope of the NanSam Mountain and on the banks of the Han River, providing wonderful natural views to go along with its proximity to the Itaewon area often referred to as "Little America."

Highlights
  • Distinct ultra-modern design and decor throughout property
  • Easy access to shopping, nightlife, museums
Rooms

The 133 rooms at the IP Boutique Hotel Itaewon are anything but ordinary. Bright white walls are accented with vibrant, graphic murals and sleek furnishings with silver accents. All rooms contain 32-inch flat-panel TVs with more than 30 digital channels, iPod stations, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access and designer toiletries from Bvlgari. Suites offer an excellent view of the city and a separate sitting area.

Features

Even from the exterior, the design of the IP Boutique Hotel Itaewon reveals itself as one-of-a-kind. Swings are located in the lobby, in addition to a knight in shining armor. Each room reveals a different artistic theme, from zebras to giant bubbles. Windows and mirrors are everywhere, creating an open, bright feeling atypical of most hotels.

 

The eye-catching Café Amiga offers guests buffet lunch and dinner in an open, airy setting befitting the striking style of the property. Deli Amador provides lighter fare such as sandwiches and snacks. Nearby nightclubs help add to the trendy vibe of the hotel.

Centrally located, quirky environs but friendly staff

Cannot beat the centrality of the location, esp. on a weekend where the neighborhood gets packed. Overstated re the hipness of the hotel but it's also not your Mom & Pop's play space. Just wish the hallways weren't so dark and the towels are a little damp, don't know why. But the sheets were soft and clean, the fancy bathroom gadgets were fun, and the staff speak English and were particularly helpful. The hotel was a few short blocks from the subway and was easy to find as the hotel cannot be missed. All in all, I'm very glad I stayed at the IP as they made Seoul easy and enjoyable for me!

I walked, took the taxi rarely, and rode the subway. Got me to all the attractions as Seoul makes it easy. Look for Info Desk at the airport and they have maps to help!

Decent

Good hotel. Good location. Decent rooms. Room was somewhat small, but that's the norm these days. Had problems with wi-fi during this stay. It was working on my previous stay.

Favorite hotel in Seoul

I couldn't ask for more out of a hotel experience. The IP Boutique Hotel is the kind of place that reminds me of how much I used to look forward to staying in new hotels as a child. Of all the places I've stayed at in Seoul, this one is tops by far.

At any given moment, Itaewon has the most diverse population in all of Korea. That by default makes it an interesting spot.

Great hotel find, especially for a last minute trip

Over all, great hotel. Would have received five stars, however AC was set a medium temp, that couldn't be changed (slightly warm for my liking).

Good location and comfortable stay, but lousy breakfast!

Best hotel in Itaewon, clean room and good location. Corridor too dark, poor amenities in room. Breakfast is poor and very little choices, even coffee was bad!

Great Value in Itaewon

Front desk service was courteous and professional. The location is on the better side of Itaewon. The facility was well layed out and finely decorated with several interesting design points. Very quiet and greatly appreciated considering it is in Itaewon. Great value! The only negative : When I read previous reviews about the dark hallways, Iblew it off...but they were spot on. A little more light in the hallways would go along way in matching the feel of the rest of the hotel; bright, cool and inviting. Overall, very nice stay.

The Maple Tree (just behind the Hamilton hotel, which you don't want to stay at...) restaurant offers an exceptional Korean BBQ experience in the" heart'' of Itaewon's "Restaurant Row!" Check it out!

Fantastic First Visit to Korea

Friendly Employees and very welcoming. The hotel is exactly as described and shown as the pictures provided. The room is very clean and very fun to stay in. A very convenient location, with restaurants and stores right outside the hotel street. Lots of coffee shops and clubs to go to. Definitely would come back again!

Great service, costly amenities, basic bathroom

Decent hotel in Itaewon, funky space. Terribly overpriced but genteel restaurant. Rooms are smallish and bathrooms have glass partitions. Staff is great, quick to respond to - and even anticipate - all requests. The rooms are clean but the carpet is light coloured which means, unfortunately, that it is visibly stained. Noisy heating ducts, self-flushing toilets. High floors are better because Itaewon is noisy. Better view on the East side.
