Airport Scale Distance to Koreana Hotel Transportation to Koreana Hotel
Incheon Airport Larger and newer 60km Both taxi and limousine bus are available.
  • Taxi: costs around 70,000 Won (430 Yuan / 7,000 Yen)
  • Limousine bus: costs 16,000 Won (100 Yuan / 1,600 Yen)
Gimpo Airport Smaller and older 20km Only taxi is available, costing around 30,000 Won (190 Yuan / 3,000 Yen).

DO NOT get a black taxi, which is twice as expensive as taxis of all other colors.
(2) Bring the printout of this to show to the taxi driver

Taking a limousine bus: Koreana Hotel -> Incheon Airport

On your way back home, you can also use the limousine bus from Koreana Hotel back to Incheon Airport. You can buy the bus ticket right at Koreana Hotel reception desk. Purchasing in advance is recommended to secure seats.

Bus stop is right in front of the hotel. There is a bus in every 20-30 minutes. After Koreana Hotel, there are three stops in downtown Seoul, the fourth (and the last) stop being Incheon Airport.
