I flew into Incheon and stayed here with my daughter while awaiting an early connecting flight out of Gimpo. The hotel was clean and comfortable and quiet, despite airplanes landing nearby. Bathroom was fine, and had both tub and shower. The desk staff proved pleasant and helpful. I did not stay for breakfast, so cannot comment on that. I felt it was a bit pricey for an airport hotel, as its best feature is its location. The hotel is atop a mall with many restaurants, Lotte Supermarket, and even a good bakery. Gimpo's international terminal is just across the road, and the hotel has a shuttle that will take you there from 05:30. Seoul's excellent subway is also accessible below the hotel, as is the train directly to/from Incheon airport.
However, I'd offer a word of advice to those arriving by that train or by subway. To get to the hotel, the hotel's Web site says one should leave the train station via exit number 2. Be advised that exit 2 has only steps, no escalator. Once at ground level, there is an elevator up to a walkway that goes across the roadway to the hotel itself, but on my recent visit, that elevator was not operating. This discovery caused me to utter much sailor talk, having just hauled much luggage up many steps. If you have luggage, children or both, I recommend that you proceed past exit 2, just into the mall. Keep to your left, just a bit beyond Aunt Annie's pretzels, and you will find the hotel lobby elevator on the left, in a short hallway that is marked with an overhead sign. The elevator itself is labeled 'Hotel Guests Only', but one can access the lobby without a key card. According to a placard in the elevator, this option may not be available between 22:30 and 06:30.
