As reviewed by others, the hotel is old. The lobby looks fine though. The room key card is not the latest kind, with punch holes on it. The door felt like a bomb blast door. The room is really dated, with furniture designs dated more than ten years ago. The CRT TV (not LCD/LED) has limited channels, mostly Korean channels....

Arrived very late and spent a night here to catch a return flight the next day. There was no service to speak of - no porter, no greetings and a not too bright lobby to welcome us. The room smelled stale and the furnitures looked dull. It wasn't a huge room to dance to my Chemical Brothers too! Fortunately, the...

I stayed for 2 nights. The decoration of the room needs a serious update and the bed was really uncomfortable. The walls were very thin, It did not help that I was sandwiched between 2 occupied rooms, so I could hear the bathroom tabs and toilet flashes from one room, and other guests talking in the other room. There is...

Near famous iteawon, good clubbing area, 5-min walk to the railway, just takes you 20-30 mins to famous myeongdong and dongtaemon.  Room rate is cheap - but if you don't mind their poor front desk service, it is definitely a good choice.

We stayed a few nights because The Crown Itaewon was close to our son's apartment and close to the location of his wedding (wedding hall at the War Memorial Museum). The room was a little cramped and too warm, but clean with very good housekeeping service. Being on the front, the road was too noisy to keep the window open...

Having studied reviews of this hotel on the internet and looked at pictures I have to say I was not looking forward to staying here really. However, as my son was living less than 200 metres away from this place we decided it was good to be close to his flat so booked 4 nights there. I do have to...

The Crown is anything but, It is easily 10 years past it's prime and provided absolutely no value for the money. Perhaps they reserve the best rooms for their asian customers because mine could only be described as a pitiful. I had to go down to the lobby to have access to wi-fi which is ridiculous with how easy it...

This place could do with a serious upgrade but it is cheap compared to other hotels in Seoul. The rooms were clean but very warm (April) which made getting a restful night difficult and also the walls are paper thin so you can hear everything (and I mean everything) that is going on in the rooms next to and above...

I just came back from the Crown Itaewon and I have to say that the location is fabulous. It's in Itaewon but it's enough off the beaten track that noise isn't a problem. It's close enough to the shopping/dining area, and about 5 minutes from the War Memorial which was one of the sights we wanted to visit. Plus, it's...

Staying in Itaewon

Neighbourhood Profile
Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison, Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here, trendy international restaurants dot the area alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest club venues. After dark, Itaewon comes into its own as one of Seoul’s top party scenes. The crowd is a fascinating patchwork of all backgrounds and identities, including a small but thriving Muslim community (centered on Korea’s sole mosque), the LGBT community (with a string of popular bars and clubs), and a wide range of ethnicities and cultures scattered around. Those seeking a quiet respite should head towards the eastern end, in Hannam-dong, which not only has one of Korea’s best art museums, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, but plenty of mid-range to upscale restaurants and cafes.
