Together, Mondrian Seoul Itaewon, Mondrian Bordeaux, and Mondrian Cannes represent the continued strong expansion of the brand’s international footprint and award-winning restaurants and lounges in collaboration with sbe partner Accor, including soon-to-be announced Mondrian properties in Australia, the Dominican Republic, Germany, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and Vietnam.
Located in the internationally diverse district of Itaewon, the Mondrian will present an immersive lifestyle destination with bold design, colorful art, and seductive restaurant and nightlife offerings.
“We are proud to introduce the first Mondrian in Asia Pacific together with our partner sbe,” said Michael Issenberg, Chairman & CEO of Accor Asia Pacific. “The Mondrian brand captivates the energy of Seoul with its creativity, revolutionary design and exciting bars and restaurants.
“Seoul is one of Asia’s most dynamic cities and is renowned for its colorful K-pop scene and fashion-forward vision, while remaining deeply rooted in culture and tradition. The opening of Mondrian Seoul Itaewon will provide a complete lifestyle hotel experience in the heart of Seoul’s most vibrant district.”
Mondrian is a world-leading lifestyle brand, offering innovative design and creative concepts tailored to the local destination, with progressive dining and drinking experiences. Mondrian hotels provide a playful framework so guests and locals alike can immerse themselves in the culture of the city.
