Seoul airport layover

On our way back to LA from Bangkok we have a 6.5+ hour layover in Seoul. We are leaving late at night (actually early in the AM) so I'm sure we will be tired. Are there any day rooms or a hotel at the airport available or any other suggestions on how to pass the time?

If you're arriving late at night, you just need a hotel room. Not "day room". Definitely spend the money unless you want sleep on the floor of the airport.

I saw your other thread. If you're arriving 9am, then, yes you need a day room.

I believe there is a transit hotel at Inchon Airport. Though I'm not sure if they have day use rates. You should contact the hotel directly. It's a very nice airport--big and airy, lots of shops.

Shame the airport is 2hrs away from Seoul so going into Seoul probably won't be practical...

scroll all the way down, click Hotels next to Services.

There really is no need to sleep on the floor or get a room at the hotel.

There is a great transit lounge upstairs with nice couches that you can sleep on. It is very quiet and quite comfortable. There is also free internet access up there.

I had a 9 hour layover in November and I layed down here for several hours (although I didn't sleep I did rest up a bit). There were many others sleeping in this area as well, including many business travellers.

Since you only have 6.5 hours with part of that time being shaved off during the arrival time and check in time you will only have a few hours.

There are also showers available for about $9 USD right near the transit lounge. A spa is also available.

It is a very nice airport!

Cheers!

I saw signs that said 'transit hotel' pointing some way or another, when I was madly dashing through the airport to catch my flight. I'd suggest getting it there and scouting it out. In my blur through, it seemed like a fine airport.
