Great location and nice hotel”

very clean and bright rooms and good service from reception to housekeeping

we were very happy to have selected ip boutique hotel. it was a lovely hotel with very clean and bright rooms with free wifi in the room (except for the fact that it was very dim from the lift to your room.) the toilet is very big with all the necessary amenities. the staffs are very courteous and warm, always serving guests with a smile. they are fluent in english which makes communications or queries very easy and comfortable. the airport limousine bus no. 6060 stops opposite the hotel and picks up guests just outside the hotel to the airport. the whole journey takes about an hour and it is very reliable and smooth. the itaewon subway is just 5-10 mins walk from the hotel and it makes travelling to all parts of seoul very easy with their smooth and efficient subways. there are buses (at bus stop opposite hamilton hotel near itaewon subway) which we took to many attractions like namsam park, seoul tower, palaces, myeoungdong market, etc... there are many designer shops, local food outlets, restaurants, fast food outlets, bakeries, supermarkets along the stretch of road from the hotel to subway. there are also many bars/lounges too. overall, we enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely go back in the near future.

An Out of This World Experience”

stylish design, excellent staffs, fluent in english, sparkling clean, nice buffet breakfast, convenient location,
dim lighted corridor

we stayed in ip boutique for the most of our trip to seoul and it was the perfect place for our holidays. it was a place my girlfriend and i could look forward to going back to every night after a tired day of sightseeing and shopping. the staffs here are nothing short of excellent as they provide a 6-star service. they are ever ready to provide assistance and are very accommodating in every way. they met all our needs and it was truly an unforgettable experience. the rooms were comfortable for us to get a good rest to be recharged for the next day. the design of the room was truly modern and it was something new and different from your typical hotel. food is easy to find around here and the subway is only a 5 minute walk.if you ever have trouble communicating the location of the hotel to the taxi driver, just tell him that the hotel is beside the hamilton hotel. by subway, take the train to itaewon station which is on line 6. getting to shopping sites like myeongdong is also convenient as its only a 20 min train ride from itaewon. all in all, ip boutique is an excellent hotel. bravo to the staffs and i will be back when i return to seoul. thank you ip boutique hotel. you made my first trip to seoul a really unforgettable one.

Short vacation trip”

We stayed in this hotel for three days. The main goal of our trip was fun i.e. bars, nightclubs, Korean food and so on. Location of the hotel is perfect, very close to all clubs and bars. Hotel is very clean with very interesting design. We were really please to our rooms all white and mirrors. That's why it looked cleaner and fresh. Staff of the hotel was very good because we never saw anyone, except the guys on reception desk. But our room was always cleaned up. If you want to enjoy Seoul night life - Imperial Palace Boutique Hotel is the best choice.

Stylish boutique hotel with a warm welcome”

Friendly & helpful staff, good location

itaewon is an area where all different nationalities stay, which i reckon is the main reason why english is widely spoken and non koreans will not have language barrier here. also, there are many different restaurants which served different type of food, makes it easier for tourists who wish to eat other cuisine, other than koreans. ip boutique hotel is a stylish and modern hotel. as it is a boutique hotel, i guess it's a fact everyone has to acknowledge that this will not be a big hotel. nevertheless, though it is small, it is well equipped with the necessary things u expect a standard hotel to provide. the front desk staffs are very helpful and the fact of them able to converse in english was makes it a lot of easier for us to ask on directions, place of interests and recommended local tours to explore. the room was small, but good enough for a couple. very nicely decorated (like the fact of white sheets and mirrors everywhere, give the impression of clean and "bigger" room)and very clean bathroom bathroom. overall, it is a very pleasant and will definitely return should i visit seoul the next time.

Stylish living in a fantastic location”

Free wifi, decor, transport from the airport

at first, i was a little confused getting to the hotel from the airport too, like some of the previous reviewers. #6030 or #6060? in the end, since i only managed to find the bus bay for #6030, i hopped onto the bus which brought me opposite the hotel. there was a sign on the bus that says that there will be a change to its service to #6060 which will drop passengers directly outside the hotel. so maybe some time later, it will be #6060 after all. i have stayed in many boutique hotels before and the ip boutique hotel comes close to being the most stylish one of all. the decor of the lobby and the room was bright and cheery. it's true that the corridors are very dark - it's a wonder how housekeeping does its job - but it gives you a sensory rush once you enter your room since it is such a contrast with all the colours and the many mirrors around. there is free wifi in the room (which doesn't require multiple log ins) and a ipod dock to play music from your ipod or iphone. i love the rainshower in the bathroom and the sweet smelling crabtree & evelyn toiletries. there is a decent-sized gym on the 3rd floor with a stationary bike, a treadmill, a smith machine, a compound machine and a rack of free weights. a pity that they don't have complimentary breakfast though. the hotel is just 8 minutes walk to itaewon station and to the bars and restaurants on the main strip. there is no shortage of coffee joints around. zoo coffee is just opposite the hotel. flanked to the left and right, you can find cafe bene (with free wifi). there are also convenience shops like 7-11 near the hotel in case you need them.

Really cool and comfy hotel, with great service!”

good location, great service, comfy sized rooms

We were a trio of friends in Seoul for a holiday, as the deluxe double wasn't offered online, we had to book a superior room. But made a call to the hotel to upgrade it to the deluxe double. (i believe emailing them would work as well, but we decided to call as it was rather last minute) The hotel is really modern and different in terms of design from other traditional chain hotels, which is really interesting. The rooms are white, and the toilet is of an open-concept. The front desk is really helpful, we stayed for 10 nights and had to bother them 8 out of 10 (for travelling/directions/buying tix to gigs & musicals/weighing scale) to the point that the remembered our room no. They are really helpful and fluent in English, so that helped a lot. We stayed at the 9th floor, rather high up, and there was nothing wrong with the water flow from the shower, as commented in other reviews, nor were we low enough to hear the thumping of the bass from the club next door. The subway station is simply a 5 minute walk down the same street, which was really convenient. The airport limo service bus stop to the airport is just in front of the hotel, I'm not too sure about from the airport, cause we took a cab as we arrived at midnight, and the last bus departs around 10plus from the airport. We took one of those limo cab vans, taking that into consideration as well as the distance of Incheon Airport from Seoul, the taxi fare was around. I believe the normal white taxis will cost less than that. Oh yeah, the free wi-fi is a great extra feature as well! It's fast and connects well. All round a great great stay at IP Boutique hotel and my friends and I will definitely be back here the next time we're in Seoul.

this was my third visit to seoul and my second stay in this hotel. the first time i stayed in ibis myeongdong. i like ip boutique hotel because this hotel is close to many restaurants, which is convenient to me as my children is always hungry. the airport limo bus stop is just the opposite of the hotel. the itaewon subway station is also about less than 5 mins walk. this place is alo close to namdaemun market,myeongdong, dongdaemun and namsan seoul tower. the staff is very helpful, friendly and can speak english very well. one of the reception staff even come out to catch the cab for us. i will definitely stay here again.

We were so surprised!!”

The hotel lobby is so inviting and full of very interesting art it makes you want to hang out in the lobby... But the real test is the room! It's not a very big room but the design creates space by using mirrors and transparent glass everywhere opening up the space. We had white walls with a huge mural of a red lip print that was very artdeco! The coolest feature was the cell phone that was provided free of charge to take around the city. All in all we were extremely pleased with the IP Boutique hotel! The location is right at the end of the popular Itaewon shopping district, just far enough that you get away from the hustle and bustle of the night life noise, yet close enough to walk right into it! I will definitely book here again next time I visit Seoul!

The best choice in Itaewon area”

location for halal food

my wife & i would like to thank the hotel management for providing us with wheelchair during our stay in seoul. my wife was 5 months pregnant and it's difficult to move without it. the hotel even fixed it when we broke the tire. thank you very much. although this hotel is famous with 'the dark corridor', i didn't find it as a big issue...and yes the room was rather small for us 2 adults, 1 teenager & 1 young kid, yes the toilet wall was made of tempered glass & you can peep above 6 feet if you like, yes the hotel provide free wifi & iphone charging/speaker! the best thing is the hotel location very close to halal food area & that's the most important part for us. if you decided to stay at itaewon area, ip boutique hotel is your best choice. thanks again to all the friendly english speaking staffs of the hotel. you're the best & i have no doubt why your hotel was selected 2012 award.

Boutique hotel”

beautiful, tasteful, trendy (if you like trendy), attentive staff
If trendy is a weakness for you...

Recent trip to Korea (from USA), Fourth Seoul hotel. I give the IP Boutique highest scores for clean&fresh, modern conveniences, including newest robo-toilet design, but the best thing about the IP Boutique is the staff. I enjoyed having my questions and requests energetically attended to. At first I was apprehensive. The place is almost too stylish. A lot of money was spent in making the hotel look trendy. That's not my style, but the combination of clean&fresh with the excellent staff made my stay as good as anywhere, better than anyplace else I've stayed in East Asia (about ten other hotels in Seoul, Tokyo, Okinawa). Very many types of restaurants within walking distance - hotel staff can help you find what you want to eat. I did not eat in the hotel restaurant, so gave it a score of 3 - there was no option for n/a. Next time I need to be in that part of Seoul (Itaewan / Yongsan area) I will find a way to stay in this hotel again.

great location, friendly staff, cozy beds”

Trendy decor, close to Bars/Entertainment, Comfortable Beds and Pillows, Bathtubs

i really enjoyed my stay at the ip boutique hotel and will be a repeat customer whenever i plan to stay in itaewon again. the staff is really friendly and the rooms are so nicely decorated! i have to say that my favorite part of the room is the bed - with the softest pillows in seoul. it was hard to wake up and get out of it the next morning! if i had to say one con, it would be the dark, poorly-lit hallways, but that's such a minor thing when compared to this hotel's strengths. it's certainly worth the value and i'd recommend it to a friend.

A contemperary & modern design hotel”

Few features provided inside room such as free WIFI, electronic bidet, rain forest shower tap, ipod chager base, digital clock

It is very convenient & economy to reach this hotel from Incheon Airport as the Airport Shuttle Bus Stand is near from hotel. The return way of Airport Shuttle Bus Stand is exactly in front of the hotel main door. The bus fare cost Won which consider as the cheapest fare among the transport. 10mins walk to nearest Itaewon Subway Station. The staffs are so polite & good in English speaking. they even allowed us to have early check-in at 9++am. Lots of restaurant at surrounding with many kind of cuisine. Room is not big but fit Asian size. Cons - The corridor is so dark. Hope that they can improve it. If your itinerary is mainly at Myeong Dong, Dondaemun Market, Namdaemun Market, Namsan Park, Seoul Tower, Grand Palace, Insa-dong, Hongik Univeristy, Ehwa Women's Univeristy, then probably this hotel is not suitable to stay as Itaewon is not near from these hot spot. Of course you can always take subway to go to these hot spot but you have to subway line transfer each time. This may wasting your time & your energy. We will look for hotel at Myeong Dong or Dondaemun Market when we re-visit Korea unless you want to explore Itaewon district. Anyway, IP Boutique Hotel is a good hotel to stay.

Fantastic Hotel!”

Location, room size, cleanliness, atmosphere

I adore this hotel. My only peeve with it is they state bathtub when they mean shower stall... However everything else was superb. The staff were extradorinarily friendly and helpful. They joked and helped with our excessive baggage without complaint. The Hotel is located in itaewon but far enough from the bars as to be quiet and we even had a view of Seoul Tower. ^^ The room was beautiful. As small as you expect from a boutique but the bathroom was spacious. It had a large TV and beautiful furniture. Would stay again in a flash.

very good location”

Good value for money because of the location. International cuisine surround the area, bargain shopping everywhere for international fashion, all modes of transport very accessible, English speaking front desk staff
Hotel cleaning staff need to be taught English and better housekeeping skills.

The hotel is better known as Imperial Palace Hotel. The decor is very modern. Excellent location. Transportation is not at all a problem. All kinds of cuisine may be availed within the area. Itaewon is lively but not loud nor suffocating. The oxymoron is that the area is both vibrant and relaxing

Great Hotel with Great Room with Great Location”

Very nice style hotel room and hotel lobby with WiFi everywhere

This is very nice decorate hotel with both very trendy outlook and inside. I can say this is an Art Museum, everything has well designed! I was very impressed that they can allow us have early check-in at 8:30am! I was also impressed that they help us to translate the address I want to go and carry my luggage to catch the taxi outside (opposite road) when the day I left. This is very clean and quiet hotel and we enjoy the 2 days stay in IP Boutique Hotel even we did not use their facilities, dining, or room service. But I can sure it must be great as well as their good service! The hotel room has iphone dock with speaker so I can listen to my favorite song in Korea!! They provide Crabtree & Evelyn Shower gel, Shampoo and Conditioner that I was very impress! It just 5 mins walk to the Seoul Subway Station. And there are 2 convenient store nearby IP Boutique Hotel.

Second stay at IP hotel”

Location, Attentive staff, clean hotel

This was my second stay at IP Boutique hotel. If you're looking for a hotel in Itaewon, then this is a great choice. To be honest, there are not many hotels in Itaewon to choose from. IP hotel is clean and artsy, with lots of eclectic artwork on display. The staff was friendly and spoke English well enough. The hotel is also a few blocks away from the heart of Itaewon, so the crowd noise at night is not too bad. The only complaint is that the hallways are too dark! Everyone complains about this, so I do not know why the management haven't installed better lighting. It's so dark that I had to use my cellphone light to see where the door lock was for the key. Management, PLEASE ADD MORE LIGHTS TO THE HALLWAY! (I have a feeling that this used to be a love motel). Oh also the bathroom is see-thru glass, so if you're staying with people, they can see into the bathroom.

Imperial Palace Boutique Hotel”

We stayed here last 26 December 2019-1 January 2020. The quadruple deluxe family room is spacious enough for 4 adults. They gave us a room with a view of Itaewon main street and it was so beautiful to look at especially during sunrise and sunset. There is a bar on the ground floor, but we barely heard their noises, even during Saturdays and New Years Eve. Beds are huge enough to give you a comfortable sleep. Room is warm enough during winter to make you comfortable. The cleaner assigned on the 8th floor is very helpful and accommodating. Location wise, it is near to various tourists attractions. If you are a family traveler, you may take a cab instead for convenience. Travel from IP to Myeongdong, Gongbogkung, Seoul City Hall, etc. usually does not exceed 8000 Won or around $6.84 only. Just don't pick the black deluxe taxi as the price is a little higher. Itaewon itself has a mini shopping district, and has a lot of Coffee Shops and Restaurants. Food will not be a problem.

Exceptionally beautiful”

-Creative and modern design -Great location in the middle of Itaewon -Customer service
-No gym -Pay for toothbrush and toothpaste

IP Boutique hotel is located in the heart of Itaewon. It is walking distance from restaurants, bars, and the subway station. This place is worth the price that AGODA offers. They allow late check in and late check out. Without a doubt, I will book this hotel next time I decide to hang around Seoul.
