The Ramada Songdo is a good hotel if you need to spend a day or two near the Seoul airport -- without it being an airport hotel per se -- or visiting the Incheon University campus nearby. It is near the Macarthur war memorial. The hotel's name is somewhat misleading because there is no beach anywhere nearby. There used to be, but it has long since fallen victim to landfill and is now a ways from the sea. It's a quick taxi ride from the airport and Incheon University in one of the new zones of Incheon. It's NOT close to Seoul. I stayed there two nights. The large, clean rooms have good views (I was on the 9th floor) of the sea or hillside full of restaurants, cafes and a very picturesque Buddhist temple facing the sea. The hill is also a good place to go hiking or jogging, as there is an exercise path and even an outdoor gym. The hotel gym is quite well equipped and clean. The breakfast was good but I thought it was overpriced at 27,000 won and went for the cheaper continental breakfast (11,000 won) the next day. It's hard to complain, though, about a luxury hotel that only cost about $60 a night. A similar room anywhere in Europe would have cost at least four times as much. If you need to go towards Seoul, there is a bus (#8) and metro connection that will take around 90 minutes (Incheon is bigger than it looks on Google Earth). The hotel is surrounded by Korean and international restaurants and bars and there's a convenience story just outside the door. Best views would be from a restaurant (Nostalgia or La Vista) up the hill.
