    Better than it's look !

    by

    At first sight you won't rate this hotel more than 1-2 stars; situated on Itaewon-Street, 732-32 Hannam Dong Yongsan-Ku,it is not in the best neighborhood.Even the lobby area looks somewhat run-down, as well as the rooms, the always busy elevators and the not too friendly front desk staff.
    But soon one finds out, that the rather oldfashioned rooms (there is even a non-smoking floor) are comfortable and well protected against the street-noise, that there is a free of charge internet-facility and a generous buffet-style breakfast.

    Unique Quality: Centrally located,oldfashioned but rather comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast buffet with korean and western specialities. Self-service coffee and tea. Although the hotel overviews heavy traffic, it is well protected againdĀ“st the street-noise

    Crap

    by

    I stayed at the Hotel Itaewon which is supposed to be close to all the international action in Seoul. In reality, it's about a 10 minute walk from ANYTHING. The hotel is priced in the 4 star range, though it is MAYBE a two star hotel. Rooms are small. NOBODY in the hotel speaks english so unless you know Korean, you're in for a challenge. There is no internet connections in the rooms. They have a business center where you can connect for 5000 won for 30 mins (not very good). I had NO water pressure in the shower and the room (a non-smoking room) smelled like stale cigarettes and the heat was unbearable. This was in April. They crank the heat and you can't turn on the A/C. No thanks!

Shopping

Hi,
Thinking of going to Seoul for a holiday. Can anyone recommend places where I can buy cute Miffy, monobukuro, hello kitty, accessories etc ?
Pls also recommend a few clean, budget 3-star hotels in Seoul that are within the shopping areas.
Thanks.

Itaewon has some great shopping, and the itaewon hotel and the hamilton (you can book them on expedia for cheap). That was where my son and I stayed. There is a dunkin donuts down the road...not far.
