Local from Seoul, South Korea Sep 17, There are luxury hotels which imitate lavishness and then there are luxury hotels which exudes grandeur and elegance and the Imperial Palace is definitely of the latter. The marbled floors, wooden walls, chandeliers, and such adds the charm of one of Vegas' 4-star hotels and there's a pleasant feeling walking around the first floor shops and facilities alone. Almost everything a guest could possibly need is seemingly offered within the hotel including tailor shop, flower shop, jewelry shop, bakery, and more. The various art pieces around adds an artsy, museum-like feel to the hotel.
Local from Seoul, South Korea Sep 16, The Hamilton Hotel has long enjoyed both notoriety and a seedy reputation and looms large smack in the middle of Itaewon. The neighborhood itself, which has for decades been ostracized by locals as a dodgy hood, has undergone a renaissance in the last few years and cleaned up considerably, especially in the street behind the Hamilton Hotel, and Itaewon itself is now frequented on any day by a fascinating mix of locals and foreigners.
The hotel itself, however, continues to remain in the past with its marbled lobby floors, fluorescent lighting, and little signs of having undergone any sort of renovation- despite it surrounding neighborhood continuing to rise in popularity and reputation.
I wasn't allowed to see a room but the hotel lobby and facilities seemed exactly the same as when I went in for a bathroom break as a kid making it seem the Hamilton Hotel had no interest in keeping up with the times.
The greatest draw the Hamilton Hotel has is its location in Itaewon which has become one of Seoul's hottest neighborhoods for its dining scene especially the foreign restaurantship lounges, and extremely popular clubs.
It's surrounded by some of Itaewon's hottest clubs at the moment Mute, B One, etc and the nightlife in the vicinity, especially on weekends, is a major rush. Those in the nightlife scene looking for the convenience of staying right in the heart of it will find it a perfect fit.
And yes, as previous reviewers have mentioned, both the sauna in the basement and rooftop swimming pool only open in the summer is known to be a popular cruising spot with the local gays although even the local gay population says both facilities have a rather seedy and unrefined reputation.For business and family travelers though, especially those without financial limits looking for splendor in their hotel, will love the Imperial Palace Hotel.
The close proximity to Hakdong subway Station should also make exploring Seoul easier for guests here.

It is a short drive away from the Royal Palace, Itaewon and the nearest station is Namyoung Staion. The hotel is situated on Gal Wol Dong area of the city.
Business travelers love to stay in this hotel, not only because of its close proximity to the airport but also because accessing this hotel from different corners of the city is also.
