If you are in international transit, both Terminals 1 and 2 feature Transit Hotels with rooms available in 6-hour blocks. For a shorter stay, the Darakhyu Capsule Hotel Incheon Airport offers 3-hour rates for a capsule and is conveniently near the train station. Just 3min away from the airport, you will find several hotels that offer shuttle services, including Hotel Hu Incheon Airport, Best Western Premier Incheon Airport and the Grand Hyatt Incheon.
As it is close to the city centre, Gimpo Intl Airport is conveniently linked to the metro. Take line 5 or 9 to be downtown in just a few minutes after disembarking from your flight to Seoul. Numerous bus services are also available or you could take a taxi, available 24/7 from the designated ranks outside the terminal. A fare to central Seoul should cost approx. 24,000원 (£16) but the journey will take around 1h.
Incheon Intl Airport is well served by public transport, including bus and train. A free maglev train connects passengers with Yongyu and Water Park, while the Airport Railroad’s stopping service takes 66min to reach Seoul Station. A single ticket costs 9,000원 (£6) for an express or 4,750원 (£3.10) for an all-stop train. Buses are also available from the Transportation Center – as are taxis – but given that traffic can be bad it is usually quicker to take the train.
There is plenty at Seoul Incheon Intl Airport to keep you entertained, from transit city tours to a golf course and all-season ice rink. In the Transportation Center, you will find a cinema playing feature films, and there are several free exhibitions of artwork and artefacts located around the terminals. Children may enjoy watching planes take off from the Observation Decks, or you can enjoy some tranquillity in one of the seven gardens located inside Terminal 1.
Pros: Crew was nice and friendly
Cons: Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight.
Pros: One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline
Cons: If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times
Cons: Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child.
Pros: Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly.
Cons: Seats not great for such a long flight.
Pros: Reasonably comfortable seat
Cons: The flights was considerably delayed, due to Lufthansa's operation issues. Information provided at the terminal was nearly non existent and the posted information on the extent of the delay was inaccurate and not updated. All in all, not effective and non communicative handling.
Cons: All things were beyond airline control. Screaming children, weather delay, and moderate to heavy turbulence. Wind shear off the deck required pilot to punch through and stick the landing, but recovers well.
Cons: Nothing to add?
Cons: Same as previous
Pros: The flight was on time
Cons: Seats, entertainment, crew attitude
Pros: The crew was very friendly, the plane was clean, the food was ok. The portions were great but the food selection was very ethnic and not neutral. The set was not y’all friendly. Couldn’t sleep all 14 hrs.

Pros: Very impressive aircraft. Efficient crew.
Cons: Flight was delayed.
Pros: Return trip meal was significantly better than on the outbound leg.

Cons: it could be better if my connecting flight waited for me
Pros: Crew was friendly
Cons: Please catch up with the rest of the world and offer vegetarian options for your food. The entertainment did not work at all during the flight so not being able to watch a movie or listen to music during the 4 1/2 hours in flight was very annoying.
Pros: The food was good.
Cons: Could have usb outlets for devices. Connecting flight could have arrived on time. Airline don’t lose your luggage.

Pros: Crews were polite and helpful
Pros: I was stranded by not being aloud to board the plane there was a visa problem at my destination the air China staff required me to have a visa to enter the country of India. There is a tourist visa for under 180 days stay. That’s what I get when I enter on a land route just a 60 day visa upon arrival so the agents would not let me board. Air China sent me a note that I could cancel the flight and should be able to get a refund. I have called 6 times already and have yet to speak with anyone I stayed in the station all night and at 9 am today they will give be a number that will work

Pros: The food selection and drinks, given our coach class, were excellent. Nice attention to the passengers.
Pros: The crew was friendly and always came around with water.

Pros: I liked that the ladies look fit and nice ( I mean the flight attendant ladies).
Cons: We need the crew to walk in the isles more often. I wanted to drink water a lot but couldn't even contact the crew as they were never around.
Pros: the crew was very helpful and friendly
Pros: The crew was professional.
Cons: The seats are too close together. Aisles are too close together. Medical professional recommend getting up to walk and help with circulation. It is very difficult on these flights.
Cons: They didn't give the yellow cards that every traveller need to fill out. So when everyone got off in Shanghai we had all the booths busy with people trying to fill in the papers. All other airlines just give those papers while people are still in the airplane.

Pros: Everything was great
Pros: Cabin facilities
Cons: They didn’t bring one of my bags
Pros: Like the overall KLM experience
Cons: Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses.
Pros: The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars...
Cons: So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!
