it located on hooker hill and homo hill area so very convenient; hotel has a good free wifi; it's a great option for a weekend break but my room was small; friendly staff and great streetfood places nearby.

ITW hotel is a brand new hotel that opened in 2013. The rooms are new and clean, but quite small.

The strange thing is that you need to pay everything in advance when you check in, even breakfast (cash only). You cannot charge anything on your room.

I was very disappointed when I saw the poor food choice for breakfast. The waiter told us that we were not a lot to take breakfast, that is why he did not brought more things... So be sure that there are enough people taking breakfast before buying your breakfast voucher...

The neighborhood is very animated. You will find any kind of restaurants and bars. It is a nice place to spend your evening. The only problem is that the hotel entrance is in a small street that might be a part of the red light district...

Room Tip: The superior room with terrasse is very nice. This room seams to be bigger than the others (comparin...

I had a 30 hour layover on a Friday night in Seoul so I was looking for a cheaper hotel near the subway where I could walk to get some food and drinks. This place fit the bill perfectly and then some. The hotel appears to be brand new and is very clean and very modern. Its a short walk from the Itaewon subway. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful and provided recommendations for the evening. The room was great and supplied comb, toothbrush and toothpaste, razor, shoe horn, robe, sandals, hair dryer and more. The single bed was comfy and a little on the harder side.
2 important things to know if staying at this hotel. 1)There was a small touch screen panel on the wall that controls all the lights, bathroom fan, AC & Heat etc. There are pictures on the panel but everything is written in Korean. For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to turn the heat down. The room felt like a Sauna! It was snowing outside and I had to open the window in order to sleep. 2) The entrance of the hotel happens to be on a street known as 'hooker hill'. Thats right.....this hotel is located in the heart of everything you want to see and do in the Itaewon area, but its entrance is situated between and across from one of the many local brothels. I was propositioned by the ladies when walking to and from the hotel, but never once felt pressured on unsafe. Its not nearly as bad as the name 'hooker hill' makes it sound, but I would never stay there with my family.
