Best hotel in Korea so far! ”

Absolutely love this place. It’s super clean throughout- the lobby, our room and all the facilities were spotless. The staff is more than amazing. They’ll call a cab for you, help with directions and anything else you need. Everyone who worked there was friendly and helpful. The staff even spoke fluent English which I didn’t expect but greatly appreciated!!! It’s a great location as well, great for shopping and restaurants. We’ve been to many hotels during our trip here and this hotel is by far the BEST! Especially the front desk staff - they are beyond incredible and made our stay comfortable. I will look for IP hotels again when we travel abroad to try their other locations. Great hotel, even better staff. Love love love

Review of Imperial Palace Boutique Hotel in Hannam-dong”

Advantages: I was curious about the hotel where the three New Zealand brothers stayed in the TV show 'Welcome, First Time in Korea', so I searched and happened to stay in Itaewon for work. It is conveniently located between Itaewon Station on Line 6 and Hangangjin Station, making it easy to travel to Itaewon and Hannam-dong area. The front desk staff were friendly (quickly resolved requests), the rooms were spacious (including the bathroom), and the cleanliness and amenities were well provided. The rooms had large windows (each room was slightly different), so I could enjoy the view of Namsan. There are also many delicious restaurants and trendy cafes nearby, and it is not far from the Embassy District and Leum Art Museum and Namsan. - Disadvantages: Although it has been more than 10 years since it was built, the facilities such as electrical concepts give a slightly outdated feeling.

Japanese-speaking staff”

It's a hotel that I always use in Korea after a long time. Before Corona, there were no staff who could speak Japanese, and it was difficult to communicate in English, and I couldn't speak Korean that much, so I used a translation machine for detailed communication. After Corona, the probability of meeting Japanese staff is high, and I feel relieved that I can get answers to tourist information and other questions without using a translation machine. I also want to use it again.
