Rooms at a Glance
During my stay at Mondrian Seoul Itaewon, I stayed in their Standard King Room. Despite its cozy size of 22 m², the room offered a comfortable atmosphere with a view of the altitude pool.
Just like most rooms of this kind, it was equipped with air conditioning, a tea/coffee maker, and bathrobes.
Extra-long beds of over 2 meters are perfect for taller guests. The in-room Nespresso coffee maker and variety of capsules was a nice touch and got us energized after a swim in the pool.
Excellent room service options are available.
Epice offers local delicacies and gourmet Vietnamese cuisine. This is also the place where the extensive breakfast buffet is served every morning.
RESTAURANTS AND DINING
There are eight onsite restaurants and bars for guests to enjoy at Seoul Mondrian Itaewon. My favorites were the Mediterranean restaurant Cleo, the Blind Spot bar on the first floor, as well as the Privilege rooftop bar.

If you’re looking for Mediterranean flavors with a modern twist, reserve a table at Cleo! Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or an indulgent dinner, Cleo has got it all. Choose between classic Mediterranean dishes with a contemporary touch.
This isn’t just your typical lobby bar. Blind Spot serves seasonal beverages and afternoon tea during the day and signature cocktails at night. It’s the perfect place to grab a drink while you wait for the check-in or hang out with friends before hitting a club later in the evening.
Probably the hottest new rooftop bar in Seoul, Privilege Bar isn’t playing games. Sit inside and watch the professional bartenders work their magic in front of the tall liquor assortment or sit outside and enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Seoul; all while sipping on the finest cocktails in town. The choice is yours – you won’t be disappointed.
INDOOR SWIMMING POOL
What I also love about the Mondrian is that you have the choice between hitting the indoor pool and the outdoor pool.
The indoor swimming pool is has a maximum length of 25 meters and a depth of 1.3 to 1.5 meters – ideal for beginner and professional swimmers alike. There is also a jacuzzi if you just want to rest and relax. The vibrant music and large digital screen create a fun environment.
Right next to the indoor pool is a large fitness center equipped with Technogym’s state-of-the-art cardiovascular and free weight equipment. You can also take personal training lessons with a professional trainer.
The Altitude Pool & Lounge is already one of the hottest outdoor pools in Seoul. The eye-catching open water tank is the perfect place to take fun summer shots for Instagram. Guests can also hang out and relax on daybeds and comfortable sofas overlooking the pool.
Enjoyed a dedicated poolside service or grab some food and signature cocktails at the lounge.
