ITAEWON : The Global Community in Seoul: Global Fashions and Foods

Itaewon is a unique place in Seoul where one can meet people of diverse nationalities and cultures. There is a popular joke saying that international residents may not know Seoul, but they know Itaewon. Seoul even designated Itaewon as its first ‘Special Tourism District,’ to highlight it as a destination for internationals to enjoy a diversity of culture, shopping, and entertainment experiences.

Itaewon is in the middle of Yongsan-gu, which borders the northern part of the Hangang River. It is also close to Seoul Station, Myeong-dong, and Namsan Mountain. The formation of this exotic and global tourism site is closely associated with modern Korean history.

In the aftermath of the Korean War, American soldiers began to stay in the Yongsan Garrison and, consequently, numerous businesses and housing complexes were formed in Yongsan. In preparation for international meetings, the Seoul Asian and Olympic Games, the government strengthened tourism infrastructures and revitalized commerce, prompting international tourists from other parts of the world (such as Japan, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, etc.) to visit Itaewon.

Itaewon typically refers to the street full of stores, restaurants, and stalls over 1.4 kilometers between Itaewon 1-dong and Hannam 2-dong in the east. Fashion shops specialize in various imported clothes, leather goods, fur goods, handbags, shoes, and antique furniture. Big and tall sizes unavailable in other areas are well-stocked, and experienced tailors offer customized clothes.

Another one of Itaewon’s many draws is its diverse food culture, which features cuisine from around world. Restaurants right behind Hamilton Hotel form a type of exhibition hall for international foods from Korea, New York, London, India, Thailand, China, Greece, Pakistan, Italy, France, Mexico, Australia, and more. Unique flavors, exotic interiors, and diverse nationalities help to make Itaewon befittingly ‘the global village in Seoul.’

Wir haben die Wohnung sauber vorgefunden, alles hat funktioniert. Die Lage der Wohnung ist sehr zentral und trotzdem sehr ruhig. Super! Der Vermieter hat eine sehr gute Beschreibung für alles geschickt, sodass wir Wohnung und Verkehrsmittel gut gefunden haben, obwohl wir das erste Mal in seoul waren.
Leider war die Ausstattung nicht wie auf den Bildern im Netz beschrieben. In der Küche gab es nur unbequeme Hocker als Sitzgelegenheit. In den beiden Schlafräumen standen nur jeweils ein Bett mit Nachtisch. Kein Tisch, kein Stuhl, keine Nachttischlampe, bis auf einen Garderobenständer auch keine Möglichkeit (z.b. Haken) Handtücher zum Trocknen aufzuhängen. Das war schon sehr spartanisch, weil sämtliche Sachen nur auf dem Boden liegen konnten. Für unser empfinden waren die Matratzen zwar neu, aber sehr hart.

The contact with the host went smoothly. The host gives us a very user friendly instructions about the accommodation. Supermarket, shops and restaurants are nearby the accommodation approx. 150m. Within 5 mins walk you are at the nearest subway. The apartment is fine and clean. We didn't use the kitchen, because we went outside to eat, but the very basic things are available in the small kitchen. The small kitchen is, in my opinion, more suitable for preparing breakfast then diner. The two rooms are spacious then I've expected. The two-person bed is smaller then I used to. I think it was 140 or 150 cm width. The mattress is a little bit hard for me, but for people who is much heavier will enjoy it. There is fast wifi so we don't feel like we miss a living room with a TV. The bathroom is small (little bit smaller then 2 by 2m) and if you are taller then 180cm you will bump your head to the ceiling. Overall a good impression about the accommodation.

Great communication with Yoonche even prior to our stay. He replied to our questions promptly and thoroughly and even sent us a house manual and arranged our pickup and drop off at the airport. Yoonche was out of town during our stay at the apartment but we had no problems at all with the apartment as everything was as described on Wimdu and his manual.

The apartment is very well decorated and clean. I was worried that it'd be cold in the apartment but there was built in heated floorboards and so the whole place was lovely and toasty, :)

Very convenient location. Highly recommend and we'll definitely stay again if we visit Seoul.

The place itself is safe, clean, and conveniently near the Itaewon subway station. Restaurants, fastfood chains, and convenience stores are easily accessible as well, though somewhat pricey. However, if you prefer to cook, the place comes with some cooking implements. A cozy place to stay for a small family who wants to stay together.

had a great stay here at itaewon, thanks to Yoonche and the house manager. We were warmly received on the day of arrival, the house manager was already at the apartment waiting for us. The place is in excellent condition, newly furbished and clean. Yoonche was also very helpful in terms of sending us the house location, detailed map on how to get there. It was an excellent experience and would definitely go back there again when we visit korea next.
