          Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison,
          Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red

          quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here,

          The price depends on the timing, but around $100 per night, maybe a little more at busy times, sounds like a good estimate. The front desk people do speak English.
