Our house is located conveniently in the heart of Itaewon, Seoul which borders the northern part of the Hangang River. It is beside Seoul Station, Myeong-dong, and Namsan Mountain. The formation of this exotic and global tourism site is closely associated with modern Korean history.

There are two bunk beds available in each room fitting up to four people (you may rent a room with less than four if you wish). There is shared a living room, two bathrooms with showers, and a beautiful rooftop.

The space

This house is located in 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. Seoul designated Itaewon as its first ‘Special Tourism District,’ to highlight it as a destination for internationals to enjoy a diversity of culture, shopping, entertainment experiences, and partying.

In the aftermath of the Korean War, American soldiers began to stay in this area and, consequently, numerous businesses and housing complexes were formed here. 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 to visit Itaewon.

Itaewon typically refers to the street full of stores, restaurants, cafes, bars, and clubs over 1.4 kilometers.

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.’

Great place for the value, very neat and homey. Has a small uphill walk from itaewon station exit 3 but good location nonetheless. :) great host allowed me to checkin early and late checkout due to my arrival and departure times from airport (fortunately the room was available during those times) Til next time!

James was awesome. His English is really good and he was always quick to answer any questions I had. He also gave really good suggestions for food, shopping, and clubbing. 10/10 would stay again. James really goes out of his way to make sure you have a good experience in Itaewon

He was so nice and do help us a lot during our journey. His house is within walking distance from the subway station and reachable to itaewon easily. His house is well equipped and the night view from the rooftop is very beautiful.

Unfortunatly we didn't meet James personally, but he was reachable by phone at all times and gave us all the informations we needed. The appartment corresponds to all details, although we needed to get used to the bathroom because you have to be careful not to make everything (toilet, toiletpaper) wet. Iteawon is a nice, multicultural place and the subway is within walking distance.

My siblings and I couldn't have stayed at a better place to start off our trip to Seoul. Location was just close enough, but a good stroll to the subway station and we really enjoyed the vibes of the Itaewon streets. James and Harry were great- making sure we got to & settled at the place alright. Rooftop view is definitely the cherry on top and my brother especially spent good chunk of time up there. Overall, I highly recommend :)

The room was maintained in a very good condition. Budget, yet unforgettable memory with the extremely kind host. I spent a night with 3 of my friends in a separate room and we would definitely visit again later. The view from the rooftop was spectacular. You can see pretty much everything near the Han river. Чистая, тихая комната и прекрасный вид. Рекомендую.

James and his cousin Harry went above and beyond what you would expect for an AirBNB experience. I came to Seoul for my 40th birthday, climbed Mount Bukhansan and James cooked me dinner for my birthday. He even walked me home in the pouring rain. A black belt in taekwondo, he helped fulfill a lifelong dream of training in Korea and found instruction under a 9th degree black belt. Harry was so kind to walk me to the school and set up a class for me. The place was amazing and I spent every morning and evening up on their rooftop overlooking the city. James even texted me one day to make sure I was okay and upon departure, walked and waited with me for the bus to the airport. I loved calling Itaewon home and making new friends. I wish him and his family nothing but good fortune and happiness!
