Plane Spotting Seoul

 

HOTEL ORA INCHEON
Is a new hotel which has the potential to become a firm favorite with enthusiats. The hotel sits on the perimeter of the airport and has views which have been described as similar to the famous Grand Come Inn in Bangkok.
Location: ** On the perimeter of the airport. A bonus is that this hotel is only a reported 10 minute walk from the famous Sky Deck photography point.
Spotting: ***

Just returned from a recent visit to Seoul and stayed at the Hotel Ora at Seoul Incheon Airport – Requested a High Floor Room facing the airport and the was not disappointed – Courtesy bus collected from the airport before 9am and allowed an instant check-in at no extra charge. I was allocated Room 808 and the view is very similar to that of the Grand Come Inn at Bangkok International ( If anybody has stayed at that property ) – View is of the entire airport and nothing can be missed – The Wi-Fi was excellent and when the weather is clear all departures from Seoul Gimpo can be seen from the room as they initially turn and continue towards Incheon before turning away. Staff were very friendly and helpful and a restaurant is available on the ground floor.

Photos: ** No actual reports but with a good zoom photos should be ok. The famous Skydeck is only a short walk away.
Value: ** Prices for a twin room vary depending on when you stay. A typical price for a twin room is between £80-90 which is a great price for the view that you get from here.
Book:  

 

The hotel can be booked on the website of AGODA who usually offer very good deals for hotels in the Far East.

Best Western Premier Airport Hotel Incheon
is located within the airport perimeter, but 1/2 mile away from the terminal building. On arrival at the hotel ask for a room on a high floor facing the airport. If you get one of these rooms you will have views of runway 33 threshold, although you will need a telescope to read the movements off due to the distance from the hotel. The rooms come equipped with large TV screens with various channels. One of the channels lists all the arrival and departure information for the airport,  with the added bonus that cargo and general aviation flights are also included (registrations are not given). For those people who do not fancy tasting the local cuisine there is a restaurant in the hotel serving western food!
Location: *** Close to the airport. The hotel shuttle can operate very sporadically, at times only once a hour. It is often easier to use the monorail from the airport to the long stay car park. This is a free service, jump off at the second stop and you will see the hotel across the road.
Spotting: **

A room on a high numbered floor is required for reasonable views of the action. Room 1019 has confirmed views of Runways 33L and Runways 33R and a landing view of Runway 34 when traffic is on short finals. Odd numbered rooms in the range 801-811 give similar views.

Flight tracking programs are needed for the majority of aircraft although some aircraft on 33L/R can be read off from the room.

Photos: * No reports available, although it seems that the action could be too far away for good photos.
Value: ** Prices for a twin room vary depending on when you stay. A typical price for a twin room is between £70 to £80.

Hyatt Regency Cologne Incheon Hotel
is found almost next door to the above best Western Hotel, and is connected with the airport by a complimentary shuttle bus that operates every 15 minutes. Again you need a room on a high floor for the best results. Reports suggest that if you ask for an odd numbered room in the range 909 to 921 you will get the best results. In the description provided by the hotel it says that you can visit the “Regency Club bar to get great views of departing Jumbo’s”.  
Location: *** Convenient for the airport and connected by a free shuttle bus.
Spotting: ** Ask for one of the room numbers mentioned above to avoid disappointment. Flight Tracking software may be required to tie up movements as the angles involved in reading off traffic can be difficult at times.
Photos: * No reports available
Value: *  This hotel is quite expensive. Twin rooms are in the range of £100 to £110 depending on when you stay.
Book:   Prices can be found through Hotelopia or click here to be taken to the Agoda site which may offer better deals at times.

    staying at the Grand hyatt hotel Incheon airport at the moment in room 1022 on the 10th floor which is an airport view room, fantastic views of the airport and all departures and arrivals can be seen but you will need sbs or FR24, this is a really nice hotel but you do pay for it, breakfast is buffet around £23 and evening meal is also buffet at around £44 but its really nice food, there aren’t really any alternatives to eat unless you go back to the terminal as the hotel is in the middle of a business park. the rooms are really nice with a massive window to view, this is a proper spotters hotel but comes with a price to match, wifi is free
