Accor's Mondrian Seoul Itaewon

Accor is set to open its first Mondrian hotel in Seoul, South Korea.

Mondrian Seoul Itaewon will be the hospitality group’s first Mondrian-branded hotel in the Asia Pacific region, and fifth Mondrian property in its portfolio.

Located in Itaewon, Accor says guests can expect “bold design, colourful art, and seductive restaurant and nightlife offerings”.

“The Mondrian brand captivates the energy of Seoul with its creativity, revolutionary design and exciting bars and restaurants,” said Michael Issenberg, chairman and CEO of Accor Asia Pacific.

“Seoul is one of Asia’s most dynamic cities and is renowned for its colourful K-pop scene and fashion-forward vision, while remaining deeply rooted in culture and tradition,” he added.

The new hotel will have 296 guest rooms and will feature a range of dining and leisure options.

The outdoor pool features a “spacious” viewing deck overlooking the city, while the Altitude pool bar offers a range of cocktails, mocktails and fine wines with casual bites. The hotel’s Cleo restaurant in the lobby blends “Miami vibes” with Mediterranean cuisine.

Accor says the Privilege rooftop bar will curate a wide selection of whiskeys and wines, alongside live performances, while the Rumpus Room and Blind Spot provide an “intimate setting” for guests looking to relax to the the sounds of an in-house DJ.

The new property will also have a  867 sq m ballroom with an LED screen and five meeting rooms.

With new hotels slated for Bordeaux and Cannes next year, Accor says the Mondrian brand expects to grow its lifestyle hotel portfolio to approximately 15 properties by 2022.
