    Perfect location, nice large modern rooms, great value”

    Hamilton Hotel is in a perfect location in Seoul in the heart of vibrant Itaewon. There is a subway station at the entrance. It's cheap and convenient to take the train from the airport to Itaewon station and the hotel is immediately in front of either exit 1 or 2. Check-in was fast, easy, and front desk staff speaks perfect English. My room and the entire floor looks freshly renovated. My room was large with comfortable beds and a modern bathroom. Even though it's very near the Itaewon clubs, my room was totally quiet. The last time I stayed at this hotel was 10 years ago. I mostly liked it then, but the rooms were not nearly as nice as the newly renovated rooms I just experienced on this trip. I love this hotel and will stay there again on future visits to Seoul.

    Great location”

    Hamilton hotel may look old on the outside but my room was decent and quite spacious. Swimming pool is chargeable and not included in the hotel package during summer period so it's something to take note of. (Hotel guests get a special price for entry compared to the Public charges). Location is right above Itaewon station with a direct bus to the Airport across just across the road. Despite being in the main party district, I didn't have issues sleeping and if needed, you can always ask Front Desk for free ear plugs. Will definitely stay here if i'm in Seoul next time.

    Second time at Hamilton Hotel from 26-29 January 2019 (first stay was November 2016). Convenient location as the Itaewon Station is 2-mins walk, and the express shuttle service from Airport stops just opposite the hotel. There is a direct bus service from bus stop opposite the hotel to N Seoul Tower. Great for Muslim travellers too as it walking distance to many Halal eateries. The Seoul Grand Mosque is about 5-8 minutes walk from the hotel. Hotel staff are friendly too.

    Convenient location, helpful staff, comfortable room

    My daughter and I stayed here for two nights while visiting Korea. We chose the location because it was close to the 'DMZ Tour' we had booked for one of the days, and also the Hamilton Hotel is located right above the Itaewon subway station. Our room was small but clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and polite, including arranging a well priced taxi for us to the airport when we left. We did not especially like Itaewon itself as a place to stay - in the evenings the clubs were very noisy and it was only because we were so tired that we slept anyway! We had to get up very early the next morning to get to our DMZ tour, and the streets were completely trashed - an army of street cleaners were out there cleaning up all the rubbish, drunk people still staggering around the place. It was kind of sad that this is the result of Itaewon being the 'International' area of Seoul - I have always felt quite safe walking around Korea even walking alone at night as a woman, but I would certainly not do that in Itaewon. Next time I would probably not stay in Itaewon as there are nicer places in Seoul to stay. However the Hamilton Hotel itself was lovely and we enjoyed our stay there.

    Perfect location. Great Hotel”

    This one one of the nicest hotels I've been to, with many nice, small touches and everything possible updated. Location couldn't be more perfect if you are a young person visiting Seoul for fun. I'm an engineer living in Korea, but I stayed here during a weekend away, visiting itaewon. I travel a lot for work and visit numerous overpriced hotels my company pays for. This one I paid for myself. It was half the price of the comparable hotels in the area and much nicer and newer. No complaints. Only thing to note is yes the other reviews are correct for noise all night. But why would you plan to stay at the heart of the party district and expect silence? It didn't bother me, but it would bother many people. It was loud and all night. It is Itaewon after all ;-P Anyway, great hotel. Plan to stay here again!

    I have been to Seoul more than 30 times and usually book this place because of its location. It is right in front of Itaewon station, very convenient in city center, good access from airport and easy to move around. The room is clean and has free and fast Wifi. They used to have Korean Sauna at B1F but now the size is smaller, I still enjoy it though. Their staff is there 24/7 and helpful, they speak English and Japanese too. Money exchange is also available at the reception. One comment I should make is the noise from the neighbors, since Itaewon is a "night town" in Seoul, there are many people at clubs, pubs, etc. around this hotel and it could be loud (even in the hotel room) especially Friday and Saturday night. Single travelers or young couple should be fine but it might be not suitable for the family with young children. Also in summer they have small swimming pool at 5F and many, many people from outside of the hotel visit, so the elevator could be crowded sometimes.

    Central location with clean and comfortable room. Esp great for Malay/Muslim visitors to Korea”

    I was travelling with some of my Malay/Muslim friends and they appreciated that they had easy access to Halal food very nearby, esp the NY famous Halal Guys. There are a number of Halal marts near the mosque which is 5 mins away. The hotel is right next to Itaewon (between Exit 1 and 2). There is a direct bus to bring you to Seoul station, or Myeongdong. Taxis are easy to hail down too. Wheelchair-friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bathrooms are very roomy with a bathtub and fully-functional bidet. Rooms were very very excellent! Hotel has an attached Gym and Sauna. The Hamilton Mall attached to the hotel isn't that great but there is a LOHB and Under Armor on the first floor. One down-side is the staff. The concierge barely speaks English and is not very friendly when we requested for a cab. Even the manager at the front desk when we were checking out, did not bother to look at us and just monotonously said "Mini bar? No? Ok bye". verbatim. Bell boy was helpful though.

    Better Than My Last Visit, BUT...”

    Renovations, Extra-Comfy Bed, Proximity to the Itaewon Attractionc

    In 2012, I stayed at the Hamilton and was quite disappointed, not only in the shabbiness of the room, but also in the rudeness of the staff (even allowing for Korean to English translation issues). I found myself unexpectedly at the Hamilton once again and was surprised to see the hotel has apparently been renovated (which was sorely needed). Although I made my reservation only about 20 minutes before checking in (I was actually in a nearby restaurant when I booked), I was able to get a room, and was surprised to receive one on the top floor...a plus if you are staying on the busy Itaewon strip during a weekend, due to the noise coming up from the street. I could also see everything was new. The bed was extra comfy, and the amenities had been upgraded. The price was about the same...a bit steep for the facility, but in this case, foreigners usually are willing to pay it to be in the foreigner district for shopping and entertainment. One thing the Hamilton still needs to work on, though, is service. They are not quite to the level of a 4-star there, maybe even only a low 3. But if you are just looking for comfy convenience during your weekend in Iatewon, it's great. You'll be happy.

    Best Hotel in Itaewon”

    Good room at 9th floor. Newly renovated room. Small room but okay to stay for 2 nights. 1 minute walk from hotel entrance to Itaewon Metro station. From this subway, travelers could go anywhere in Seoul and vicinity. Hamilton Shopping complex just besides the hotel and it is connected with the hotel at level 4, 3 and 2. Subway station just in front of the hotel. At night behind the hotel, there is an alley with many entertainment outlet and very busy at night. Many HALAL restaurant just across the street. Seoul Mosque just 500 meters away from the hotel. Many HALAL restaurant within 100 meter radius from the mosque such as Makan, EID etc. There you could eat authentic HALAL korean food. The best hotel in Itaewon and with AGODA, traveler could use discount coupon and redeem cash rebates. Will stay again at the hotel in future.

    Convenient and nice hotel for good value”

    The hotel is just at Itaewon Station exit, which is very convenient to go to other places using subway. There are many amazing restaurants, cafes and bars surrounding the areas so you can relax and enjoy without going too far. Reservation, check in and check out were smooth. The room is very clean, comfortable and simple but up to dated I suggest that you request for higher floor to reduce noise from traffics and the bars. They do provide ear plugs in case the noise became unbearable. They also provided sufficient personal items such as comb, toothbrush, shaver, hairdryer, shampoo and conditioner. Just 15 minutes walk, you can visit the Seoul Central Mosque (or also known as Itaewon Mosque) so if you are Muslim you can pray and then dine in halal foods nearby. Even if you are not, you will love the view from the mosque and you can try out arabic/turkish/lebanon/indian delicacies.

    Me and my family stayed in Hamilton hotel's triple room for 9 nights and we enjoyed our stay very much. The room was newly renovated with automated fercilities. As we were on the 9th floor, it gave us a good view of Itaewon. We will stay in Hamilton again when we revisit Seoul.

    Perfect for location. TERRIBLE for sleep.”

    I've stayed here twice with each visit lasting a little more than a week.. NOTE: Korea currently has a COVID curfew where everything closes at 9 PM. When the Itaewon bars close, a lot of people will afterparty at hotel rooms, like Hamilton. I was lucky my first visit. Only 1 night was loud, with the noise coming from the next room. The walls are not particularly noise-proof. But I had earplugs. The second visit was bad. 2 of the first 3 nights I had issues with the next room being loud. I asked to switch rooms, and they said I was the only occupant on the floor, so switching rooms was unnecessary. That night, they put a really loud group of partiers next to my room. Earplugs didn't work. This time I insisted they switch me to another room, so they finally put me on another floor. This floor (8th floor) was much quieter - I'm assuming my previous room was on the afterparty floor (9th floor). I had no noise issues the rest of my stay.

    Great hotel to stay in Itaewon”

    Location is super convenient, just right next to the subway. There were a lot of halal eateries nearby, which makes it super convenient for us, and also partly the reason why we stayed in Itaewon while in Seoul. The hotel room is spacious and clean. Staff were courteous and nice and even offered to help us to arrange a private bus to go to the airport when we check out. Will definitely stay here again next time.

    Very clean and modern rooms”

    This hotel is great. I lived in Seoul for years but was coming back for a visit, so I decided to stay here. The rooms are a decent size, and they are very clean and modern with good amenities. My trip was centred around Itaewon, so the location was also perfect, but if you are planning on spending most of your time outside of Itaewon, then public transportation to and from Itaewon isn't the best. My only complaint is that the hotel pool is very expensive. They offer a small discount, but if two people want to use the pool and actually sit on pool beds (and not just lay on the ground), you are paying around $50. This should be in the listing because it is a little shocking.

    Disappointing ”

    The Hamilton Is the only Hotel in Itaewon that I like to stay at ! I was very disappointed that after paying my bill online I was asked for my credit card as I needed a deposit. I was staying for one night as I came to Seoul to go to my Embassy . My booking was confirmed and I never had my credit card and I stayed there previously .The Booking stated that the hotel would be paid directly,So why ask for my credit card again ? All in all It was a pleasant stay !

    Excellent Location”

    This hotel is situated in a busy area of Itaewon. It was easy to get to the hotel from Icheon using the KAL bus. The journey took one and the half hour. We arrived at the hotel at 11AM and we were given the rooms immediately. The room was of average size and clean. The beds were very comfortable. There were many restaurants and fast food outlets nearby. Most of the restaurants served halal food. The only negative point about this hotel was the street noise. It can be unbearable late at night.

    My second time to this hotel after 8 years ago. The room is clean and cozy. Got a room on high floor with nice view of Itaewon street. Arrived early before 12 pm but room was ready for check-in. Didn't book room with breakfast but was given the discount coupons if choose to dine there. Street has lots of restaurants, especially halal ones. Travel by their train is also quite convenient. Airport limousine bus 6030 runs every 30 mins, stops just opposite the hotel.
