Accommodation (South Korea)


Group tour hotels are generally of a 3 to 4-star international standard. Hotels in South Korea offer similar facilities and standards as you would expect in the West. Rooms feature heating/air-conditioning, television and an ensuite bathroom. Bathrooms in all but the very top end hotels tend to be quite small, with a half size bath with a shower over it. There is often a step up to the bathroom, so please be observant of this. In-room safes, fridges and tea/coffee making facilities are reasonably common but you may not find them in all hotels. City hotels often have a bar, gym and swimming pool but please bear in mind that hotels in rural areas may be more basic.

Some hotels in South Korea have hot water restrictions, operating for a few hours at a time, usually in the morning and evenings. If you experience any difficulty, please speak to your National Escort.

Hotels throughout South Korea may collect your passport at check-in and make a copy of it, as required by law. In South Korea, check-in time is usually 2pm and check-out time is 10am. Remember that on the days when you are travelling between cities it may result in a delay of access to your room. Hotels cannot guarantee late check-out or early-check unless it is pre-paid. At many hotels, the reception staff speak little English. If you require help, please contact your tour guide.

Double beds are subject to hotel inventory and cannot be guaranteed.
