Grand Hyatt Seoul
The Grand Hyatt Seoul is located a few minutes away from Itaewon, and runs a free shuttle bus to the area until 9pm. It has everything you’d expect from a five-star hotel of this calibre – impeccable service, swanky restaurants and state-of-the-art fitness facilities, including a tennis rink and an outdoor swimming pool that transforms into an ice rink in winter. Itaewon and the Han River are on one side, Namsan Mountain on the other, and the hotel’s hilltop location makes the most of these. Big windows sweep up from floor to ceiling, with particularly good views from the higher floors as well as from the restaurants and bars.
