Hotel Description

From the first glimpse of its vibrant exterior of color swatches and glass, it’s clear that Imperial Palace Boutique Hotel Seoul isn’t the most traditional of hotels. The lobby rather unsubtly reinforces this perception with a riot of color and playful décor, from the oversized yellow chair to the cushy red playground swings. And with 142 rooms spread across 17 floors, this hotel supplies off-kilter boutique quirkiness on a relatively grand scale. Top that off with a prime location in the multicultural Itaewon district and stunning views of the Han River, and you’ve got a surefire remedy for business-travel doldrums.

After the bright maximalism of the lobby, the guest rooms are color-splashed in a more relaxed way. Each one features a mural all its own, from zebras to bright red lips to big, colorful fruits. Beyond these accents, rooms fit snugly into urban boutique familiarity, delivering the standard comforts — flatscreen TV, free Wi-Fi, iPod docks — in a crisp white-on-white environment. And perhaps unexpectedly luxe are the bathrooms, mirror-lined sanctuaries in frosted glass, stocked with Bulgari products.

The abundance of character spreads to the Café Amiga, a sunny buffet-style restaurant. Keep in mind that the location is Itaewon, where a staggering variety of international cuisine is always available, the boutique shopping is justly famous, and the nightlife is assuredly devoid of dull moments.
