A thorough remodeling of the building and most of its furnishings has improved this once staid property. Hamilton Hotel Itaewon is close to the heart of Itaewon, Korea’s mecca of international shopping. Seoul Tower at Nam Mountain is very close to the hotel, and from there, guests can enjoy the beautiful view of Seoul. Be sure to ask the staff information on the famous Namdaemun and Dongdaemun markets which are about 20 minutes away by bus. Renowned for its cuisine, the hotel houses four on-site restaurants including Ashoka, the most popular Indian restaurant in the city. The other restaurants serve Chinese, Western, and Korean fare. Hamilton Hotel Itaewon is easy to book. Just enter your travel dates on our secure online booking form.

Hamilton Hotel Itaewon
Show reviews that mention
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.
Great location and service”
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.
Comfortable and convenient”
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.
Better Than My Last Visit, BUT...”
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.
Good location, clean room and friendly staff”
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.
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.
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.
Location, Location, Location”
If you want a hotel in an amazing location surrounded by all of what Itaewon has to offer, look no forward than Hamilton Hotel.
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.
HAPPY STAY AT HAMILTON FOR SURROUNDING”
Location of Hamilton is the focal point of Itaewon area. The convenience of transportation by Metro, Bus, Taxi are very encouraging. This is very effective stay for short duration busy traveler but the room rate seems expensive. The area is very congenial and easy for walk in evening, club, bar, restaurant access mixing with mass people, shopping etc.
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 !
Good location and clean room”
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.
The hotel room was very clean and spacious. Wide spread of food for breakfast buffet style. Very good hotel location as its convenient for muslim since Itaewon area full of Halal Foods. Easy to travel with nearest subway Itaewon and Airport Limousine bus just near by. Overall perfect.
First visit to Seoul.”
Staying at Hamilton Hotel has been a memorable experience for my family and I. We liked the location, the friendly and efficient staff, the services and the clean rooms. Best of all we love the high speed internet access & wifi.
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.
We were very happy with the newly renovated Hamilton Hotel ,it was clean and comfortable The location is excellent with shops and international restaurants and lots of coffee shops nearby.A subway stop is in front of the hotel as well as taxis, and just down the street a Hop on Hop off tour bus.
My GoTo Hotel in Seoul”
I've stayed at the Hamilton Hotel many many times since 1978. The service is great, It's extremely clean, and directly in the center of hundreds of restaurants and bars. It's always my first choice when I travel to that area on business.
