Stopover in Seoul on Sydney Toronto flight

We are planning to travel from Sydney to Toronto by Korea Air in September. There is a long stopover in Seoul (17.25 to 10.15) I would be grateful for any advice about transit hotels etc or any tips about the best hassle free way to fill in the time. At this stage we aren't intending to do any sightseeing or shopping. Thank you

I thought some airlines(Korean, Asiana,) provide a transit hotel at Incheon, as part of your ticket. I would ring them and check.

The Incheon Airport Transit Hotel is obviously a good option for you and is airside. Make sure you make a reservation if you don't get one provided by your airline, as it can be difficult just turning up without one.

I agree, you should be able to get the free hotel with KE - call their AU phone ASAP (you need to request it, not automatic). ICN is one of the world's great airports by the way. Most of the hotels are in the immediate airport area (you will need to pass Korean immigration - no big deal, no visa req.)

I regularly fly either KE or OZ into that airport, and use the free hotel service (comes with lunch and transportation).

I also hada "free" hotel due to the long transfer time when traveling to Europe. This also included dinner and breakfast and transportation. It was very comfortable and a great break between flights.
