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.’

  • Quick response on all requests. cozy room with adequate utensils. A bit queit surroundings, need to go home earlier.
    After all, i recommended this house to ppl who fancy quiet living area and more appealing to westerners.

  • Jang-Soon's apartment was perfect for our Seoul trip! It was located close to Itaewon station, which made getting around easy, however it was far enough from the main strip that noise from the bars and clubs was not at all a problem. The room itself was very clean and comfortable, and Jang-Soon was extremely communicative and welcoming!

  • Itaewon is a nice place for club goers and its alive at night. It is rather near subway station with a 10min walk and passing thru some stairways and winding alleys. I like the room to be cosy and Jang Soon ssi is kind and let us use the house supplies like washing detergent and bath supplies, he provided some snacks and noodles for us. The apartment is well-maintained and clean. Just like the photos seen , true to pictures. A small shortcoming is probably because Itaewon has a mix of foreigners of all different nationalities. And they come out often at night to pubs, itaewon also sells stuff at expensive prices as Its tourists attractions. But its very near to Namsan Tower and ewha university with accessible buses. The host is friendly, helpful and contactable too.

  • It was a great flat in a perfect surrounding with many bars, clubs & restaurants. The hosts were very welcoming and offered a perfect room manual for good support in arrival. Very nice to meet them!!!

  • Mr. Hwang and his lovely wife was super friendly and helpful upon our arrival (no doubt our flight was delay and late check-in) and Mr. Hwang response very fast to our queries. Rooms features are just as per photos, clean, spacious and comfortable. Neighborhood was rather quiet in the night. But overall experience, it feels like home. Approximately 10 mins walk to Itaewon Subway (Exit 4). Lots of eatery, clubs, pubs and shopping around the area. Not to mention, nearby Itaewon Subway (Exit 3) there's a sauna and spa which opens 24hrs. Totally awesome location.

    Great thanks and appreciation to Mr. Hwang and his wife for their great hospitality.

  • Very kind apartment owner and clean room and convenience location. We got clear guide before arriving. Will choose to stay here for the next trip.

  • cozy apartment in the heart of Itaewon. Apartment is clean and equipped with everything you might need. The only thing that took some getting used to was the bathroom. There is no separate shower area, so the toilet is right next to you while showering. Other than that apartment was great and Jang-Soon and his wife were excellent hosts.

  • Jang-Soon Hwang is extremely helpful!! This was my best stay ever on Airbnb. Very clean apartment, they put food for you, lots of other stuff that you might need during your stay. And more than that he came early in the morning at the apartment to let us in and show what is where!! My only minor qualm was that there was no sink in the bathroom. Other than that, this place is highly recommended! Great hosts!!

  • The location is very convenient and the area is pretty quiet/safe. It was a bit difficult to navigate on our first and last days with the luggage as the hill is quite steep. However Jang Soon's wife met us on the first day. She was very nice and showed us around the place. There is a washer which worked well but no dryer. The bathroom was a bit smelly on the first day but we were able to open the window to air it out. Also there were lots of snacks and drinks for us to enjoy. Overall a well situated and comfortable place to stay in Seoul!
