When you have to use Gimpo International Airport for your trip, it is crucial to know the closest accommodation to it. After all, the airport isn’t open 24 hours. In between 23.59 PM and 5 AM, the airport closes. Travellers aren’t allowed to spend a night at the airport, causing them to choose a hotel that isn’t far from the airport.
Knowing the nearby hotels can be handy if you are on a layover. Or if you have to fly very early in the morning or arrive very late at night, knowing the closest hotel as well as the access will save you tons of efforts and energy. So, what are your options?
1. Lotte City Airport Hotel
A lot of travellers love this 4-star hotel because of its location – which is only 1 kilometre away from the hotel. The hotel is at Lotte Gimpo Shopping Mall and it is just 5 minutes from the airport. You can use Line 5 and Line 9 and go with Exit 9 to reach the hotel.
The hotel has a modern and stylish ambience. It has all the amenities and facilities that will make your stay comfortable and memorable. It has free WiFi, free parking, a fitness centre, and AC. Although you can always enjoy the meals at the restaurant (they serve Western menus), finding a meal is pretty close since the hotel is close to a shopping mall. Or if you want to, there are also many restaurants outside the hotel. You only need to walk and find your favourite dish.
If you want to explore the area around, you can go to Seoul Worldcup Stadium which is only 30 minutes drive from the hotel. The mall is 4 minutes drive, housing a cinema, supermarket, food court, and department store.
