ABOUT ITAEWON : The Global Community in Seoul (Center of Seoul)
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 Han 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.’

Mr. Lee was a great host. He greated us down the alley and helped carry our luggage. His English was clear and he showed us the living space which was as we expected. A small tidy room with AC and WiFi, community bathroom (although no one else was there so it was ours), and fresh towels with shampoo. The washer was a huge plus after traveling for long, just bring some soap or purchase some.
The hill was a bit of a hike with bags after traveling, but the location was central and neighborhood excellent to explore.
Mr. Lee suggested the airport bus from the local hotel instead of a taxi or subway line which was a nice easy, direct ride for $15 per person.
The DMZ tour also picked us up from the local hotel which was nice.
Lastly Mr. Lee let us arrive early and stay at there until 5 since we had a late flight, both were very helpful.
Overall a great stay at the Cozy Place.
The listing was accurate and the place looks like the way it was presented. Very nicely prepared. Simple and easy. Convenient and a 8-minute walk to the train station.
This place is in great location, in the middle of Itaewon!!! However, it is not comfort for people with large baggages because you have to carry all your baggages up to the hill with some stairs. This place is superb for clubbing in Itaewon area. You don't have to bother with overcharged taxi at night because you can walk home easily. Room is great. Host is very nice, he helps me carry all baggages to my room with very fast check in process LOL. I will surely come back to stay here again next time.
Youngjin was AWESOME in so many ways! He literally saved my holiday! We missed our shuttle to the ski resort and he helped us find another alternative. And he helped us with a lot with all the information he gave us.
The room was clean and comfortable even in super cold temperatures (0 degrees) at night. The location is right at Itaewon Station where the nightlife is abundant. Lots of foreigners and locals seem to love partying around this area. We went hm late every night and it was safe.
Youngjin gave us very clear instructions on how to find his place and and excellent map of all the nearby grocery store/restaurants that were available. He even had instructions on how to get to seoul's main tourist attractions!
Thank you for making us feel very comfortable! See you again next time!
I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to stay at Itaewon!
Great experience overall. Here are the things that were important to me when I stayed: location, cleanliness, security, and host language. This spot was in a great location - very close to the main street in Itaewon. Was in a bar getting drinks, and thirty seconds later was back in the apartment. The room was also very clean, and had a good locking door so I was comfortable leaving my computer and camera in the room while I was out. Younjin also spoke good english, so I had no issues getting directions and restaurant recs from him.
The listing was accurate. During the time of my stay, nobody stayed in the other room so I had the place to myself. It was quiet and very close to everything there in Itaewon. Unbeatable for the price and would stay again.
Youngjin was an absolutely fantastic host that made us instantly feel welcome on the day of our arrival. He came out to help us pull in our luggage into the apartment and even let us check in earlier because our flight landed in the wee hours of the morning. He has assisted us in any reservations that we need to make and even prepared for us a small parting gift!
The location of the apartment is easy to find because the directions are clear and concise. Would recommend it to anyone who would like to go cafe hopping in Seoul as it is merely a stone's throw away from many of the famous cafes in Seoul. Overall a great experience and I definitely enjoyed myself!
