ITAEWON : The Global Community in Seoul: Global Fashions and Foods (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 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.’

  • This apartment was exactly what I needed for my long weekend in Seoul! Great location, close to all the action of Itaewon but set back far enough in quiet side streets to escape the noise and activity when you want. The apartment is larger than it looks online, and everything was as expected inside. Youngjin was a great host, he even met me at the subway as I insisted on finding my own way there on public transport. I would definitely stay there again without hesitation.

  • Youngjin is a great host. He answers very quickly to all our requests and is always willing to help. The apartment looks exactly as on the pictures of the website. It's small but very convenient and clean. The free laundry and the wifi are good points.
    Location is perfect : 5mn from subway station, shops/restaurants/bars and supermarket are within a short walk distance.
    I recommand !

  • My husband and I had a wonderful stay. The location is prefect for eating, shopping, or just exploring. Our host was very kind and accommodating. We will stay with him again!

  • the apartment was clean and cozy and in a perfect location, just up from the main drag of itaewon. if i make it back to seoul again soon, i would definitely stay there again. youngjin was not in town that week, but his father and grandfather were around and provided just the right amount of help and attention. highly recommended.

  • This place was perfect for my stay in Itaewon.

    I ended up with an immediate need to switch accommodations after my work meetings abruptly ended and I didn't want to switch my flight, and the host Youngjin was extremely response on very short notice late at night, and I was able to book the place starting with the very next day.

    The directions made it easy to find, with the pictures being a huge help.

    I wanted to stay near the nightlife there, and this place is a 1 minute walk to that while still being far enough away to be dead quiet at night, so there is no noise to keep you awake. Even on Halloween weekend when the streets were jammed just blocks away, there still was enough distance to keep that away.

    The place was extremely clean and the bed was comfortable for sleeping. I didn't use the kitchen but it was nice to know it was there if I wanted to.

    Overall it was a great place to stay and if I'm back in Seoul, I will definitely look to stay here again. You can't beat the value plus location of this spot.

  • As far as location and price go, you can't better than this place for privacy and a place to relax after a day in Seoul! The friendly and welcoming hosts put the cherry on top. I'll be staying in December again.

  • It was such a lovely stay... My and my friend finally got a chance to stay in a cosy Korean house-style-like in Seoul. Youngjin's father greeted and helped us carry our luggage when we arrived. The room is clean and the area is safe (although Itaewon area is very downtown-ish) Big thank you to Youngjin's horumuni who was so kind and warm too :) Wished we could have met Youngjin to thank him in person. Kumapsimida! We'll come back for sure!

  • The apartment was great, true to pictures and you'll have everything you need. The location is good and most importantly, we feel safe even when we got back home late. It's near the subway, groceries store and restaurants. Youngjin's dad and grandparents were such great hosts and they've made our 8days stay such a pleasant one!! Thank you very much Youngjin and family!!
