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.

Great location

In the centre of Itaewon, the IP is in the perfect location to access trendy bars and restaurants. The room itself was very clean and tidy and the staff at the hotel helpful. They helped me book a tour, get taxis' and gave me useful information about the area and the sites to see in Seoul. I was also happy with the gym room.

Seoul searching

Great location near to many eateries, subway, nite clubs and shopping. I like the modern, cool and chic interior design. But I don't get the dark hallway, its kind of annoying.

Friendly staff

Staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms are tidy in general. Location is OK, 5 min walk from Metro. Free wifi offered . The toilet is only surrounded by glass wall so there could be a lack of privacy and switching on light will light up the whole room.

Good, but not private

Good hotel. I just didn't like the lighting or restroom privacy. The bathrooms have glass walls and a bright LED that carries the light for the entire hotel room. There is good lighting control, but the application was quite irritating for a shared hotel room. Also, the restroom was glass, allowing you to see through far too easily. A love motel, that I stayed at while in Korea, was more private. It had the same glass walls. Great location, close to food, bars, nightlife, transportation. Perfect for a close couple and single traveler only.

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!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

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!
