“A good hotel for short stopovers or transfers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This hotel could be classified as a typical transit hotel, but is just about brand new, very well appointed and very comfortable. It is in an ideal location if you happen to have to transfer between Gimpo and Incheon Airports and don't want to have the hassle of going all the way into Seoul city. It is also well set up as a business hotel and a good spot if you have business meetings in the vicinity.

The hotel is located within easy walking distance (pulling baggage too) of the Gimpo International terminal and if you need to travel through Gimpo Domestic, shuttle busses run between the terminal every 5 minutes. There are buses to Incheon and a taxi ride costs a fixed amount of WON 55,000.

There is only one restaurant in the hotel and no bar. The restaurant seems to offer buffet meals only, which appear to be very popular with the locals. However, the hotel is part of a modern Lotte Mall, so there are many restaurants including American chains to choose from. However, the mall is only open from 10.30am to 10pm, so you really only have one choice for breakfast. I have a taste for good coffee and was not disappoined with the choice in the Lotte Mall.

The hotel rooms are very well appointed and offer everything a traveller needs. Free WI FI is included. I always feel quite safe in Korean hotels, and this hotel is no exception with all sorts of safety devices (such as descent devices) available in the room. Do not worry about being located right next to an airport as I generally never heard the aircraft taking off or landing.

The staff are quite proficient in english and very helpful. Overall, I had a short but delightful stay.

Room Tip: There is no need to be selective as all rooms are similar

I chose this hotel due to its proximity to the offices that I need to visit (as I was on a business trip). The location is just across the Gimpo Airport which you can access either by crossing the street or via the underpass connecting the mall and the airport. The hotel has access to the mall with a wide selection of retail stores and restaurants. Everything you need is available inside the mall including groceries for snacks and toiletries, and money changers.

The room that I got has a direct view of Gimpo's runway and I can actually see the aircrafts landing and taking off. One thing I liked with the rooms is that I was not disturbed by the airplanes' loud roars. Excellent soundproofing of the rooms. The size of the room is adequate and sleep quality is great. Since this is a new hotel, I cannot see any faults on the bathrooms.

Service is good and the reception staff can speak and understand English and readily offers help in directions and transportation options. There is free shuttle that goes around Gimpo (international terminal - domestic- cargo - offices) but does not pass in front of the hotel. You need to cross to the airport to catch this shuttle.

The only downside of this hotel is when business is done and you need to go to the city (Seoul) to see the sights. You need to take the subway/train and it takes around 45 minutes to reach downtown Seoul by taking the normal train. The airport express is much faster but also more expensive.

If you want don't have any business in Gimpo and you are primarily a tourist, don't choose this hotel. There are other good hotels downtown but if you don't mind the travel time then go ahead and book this hotel.

New, modern, well equipped. Good location with excellent staff. A little too much "new" smell. The hotel is very new so there can be a little chemical odour from the bathroom from the new materials. Otherwise a great place to stay!

Stayed only one night in this hotel , i'm with a tour group, and since we arrived around 10pm , wasn't able to check out the new shopping mall below it. My single room was spacious enough, airconditioning and lighting was good, the toilet has some nice touches to it. The buffet breakfast served western and of course korean cuisine.. Not bad for a very brief stay . Hope to spend more time in my next visit .. By the way , wireless internet is free , which is also one thing i like in this lotte hotel property ..

Located within walking distance of Gimpo airport international terminal. Under the hotel is the brand new Lotte shopping Mall with lots of shops and restaurants.
Room was clean and well furbished. Free Wifi available and a nice view at the airport.
Staff was friendly and helpful.

Great value for an airport hotel. Very easy access via a direct tunnel from Gimpo's international terminal and only a slightly longer walk from the domestic terminal.

It's located right on top of a big new shopping centre with tons of food options and plenty of shopping. But beware it's packed in the evenings.

If you've got more time on your hands you can be in the heart of downtown Seoul in 30 minutes on the AREX express train and a little bit longer on the metro.

The whole complex only opened a few months ago and is still shiny and new. Staff are good and have great English skills.
