ITAEWON : The Global Community in Seoul: Global Fashions and Foods
Itaewon is a unique place in Seoul where one can meet people of diverse nationalities and cultures. There is a popular joke saying that international residents may not know Seoul, but they know Itaewon. Seoul even designated Itaewon as its first ‘Special Tourism District,’ to highlight it as a destination for internationals to enjoy a diversity of culture, shopping, and entertainment experiences.
Itaewon is in the middle of Yongsan-gu, which borders the northern part of the Hangang River. It is also close to Seoul Station, Myeong-dong, and Namsan Mountain. The formation of this exotic and global tourism site is closely associated with modern Korean history.
In the aftermath of the Korean War, American soldiers began to stay in the Yongsan Garrison and, consequently, numerous businesses and housing complexes were formed in Yongsan. In preparation for international meetings, the Seoul Asian and Olympic Games, the government strengthened tourism infrastructures and revitalized commerce, prompting international tourists from other parts of the world (such as Japan, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, etc.) to visit Itaewon.
Itaewon typically refers to the street full of stores, restaurants, and stalls over 1.4 kilometers between Itaewon 1-dong and Hannam 2-dong in the east. Fashion shops specialize in various imported clothes, leather goods, fur goods, handbags, shoes, and antique furniture. Big and tall sizes unavailable in other areas are well-stocked, and experienced tailors offer customized clothes.
Another one of Itaewon’s many draws is its diverse food culture, which features cuisine from around world. Restaurants right behind Hamilton Hotel form a type of exhibition hall for international foods from Korea, New York, London, India, Thailand, China, Greece, Pakistan, Italy, France, Mexico, Australia, and more. Unique flavors, exotic interiors, and diverse nationalities help to make Itaewon befittingly ‘the global village in Seoul.’

Mark's apartment is in an excellent location! I had an issue with the bathroom and he took care of it immediately. I would definitely stay here again!
great place especially for the value and location- i would stay again in a heartbeat. one of my favorite korean restaurants, 중심 is down the street. washing machine is a bit quirky, but ultimately works fine. Mark was a very communicative host and graciously let me have a very late checkout, so my trip was very smooth.
The apartment is very convenience near to eatery area n cafe. Near to subway bout 5min walk n conveniece to do shopping n enjoy the night life
Great place, great location!
The flat was great. Very conveniently located, but still quiet at night. The only slight problem is plan on living out of your suitcase as there is very little place to store clothing. Mark was great to work with. We would stay there again if the opportunity comes up.
Mark's place is at a very good location. The room is very comfortable and clean. It's also very close to subway station so very convenient to get to places.
We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to others.
The location in Itaewon was (email hidden)ose to restaurants, grocery stores, train stations and bus stops.
The apartment had everything we needed to cook meals and do laundry, with a comfortable bed and was spotlessly clean.
Mark was not only helpful, but also a really interesting businessman. We really enjoyed learning about his entrepreneurship.
I ended up extending my stay here by re-booking on AirBNB. The experience continued to be a good one, but for reference, here was my previous review:
"Very neat place for the price. Mark is very responsive and helpful. The directions he gives to the place are like a fun little treasure hunt, but very thorough :) When I arrived, I had lost my wallet, and Mark tried to help contact Korean-speaking places for it. It didn't end up working, but that's not Mark's fault. Overall, very satisfied. Ended up extending my stay."

Clean and homely place to stay. Near to shopping district in Itaewon. Walking distance to the mosque and muslim restaurant..
