3. Showcasing Top-tier Reviews from Korean Guests

Being situated in South Korea, it’s no surprise that Blue Ocean Residence Hotelplays host to a significant number of Korean guests. In my quest for understanding guest experiences, I’ve come across a plethora of reviews penned by Koreans. Allow me to share some of these standout reviews with you.

3.1. Best Review 1: “Blue Ocean Residence Hotel: A Pet-Friendly Accommodation in Yeongjongdo, Incheon”

Summary of the Blog Post

Last summer, I visited a pet-friendly hotel located in Yeongjongdo with my husband and our dog. The pet-friendly hotel is in the form of a residence, allowing cooking, and its accommodation fee is relatively low on weekdays, making it a cost-effective hotel. All rooms are duplex, close to Incheon Airport, and located at the center of Yeongjongdo, providing excellent accessibility. It also operates about 2,400 rooms and officetels, accommodating a variety of customers.

We made a reservation through the Petel accommodation app, and one dog under 10kg per room can be admitted. However, pet supplies are not provided, so you need to prepare them yourself. We booked an Ocean Deluxe Double room, and parking was available in the basement of the hotel.

The room condition of the accommodation is a one-room type duplex, and before check-in, we could enjoy a walk with our dog in the nearby park. There was also a pet-friendly cafe near the accommodation where we could drink coffee. The outdoor cafe with a view of the sea from the accommodation was perfect for our travel course with our dog.

In the accommodation, 2 bottles of water, shampoo, body wash, hairdryer, coffee pot, microwave, and hand soap were provided as standard, and toothbrushes and toothpaste had to be prepared separately. The good surroundings made it easy to solve meals.

7. Diving into Price Analysis

Finally, let’s delve into arguably one of the most critical categories in hotel reviews – pricing.

To pinpoint where you can get your money’s worth, I’ll be comparing rates from renowned hotel comparison platforms like ‘HotelsCombined,’ ‘SkyScanner,’ and ‘Trivago.’

Our criteria for this low-price hunt? A one-night stay from Wednesday to Thursday for two guests in a single room—breakfast excluded (as it often significantly bumps up costs).

7.1. Price Comparison via ‘HotelsCombined’

After searching through ‘HotelsCombined’, the best deal I found was $36 when booking through ‘Trip.com’.

7.2. Price Comparison via ‘Sky Scanner’

The lowest price I found onBlue Ocean Residence Hotels official website was 60,000 KRW. Applying the exchange rate at the time of inquiry, which was 1,303 KRW per dollar, this amounted to approximately $46.

Our analysis reveals that out of all four sites considered, ‘Hotels Combined’ and ‘Trivago’ offer the best deal at USD 36 for a stay at the Blue Ocean Residence Hotel when booking through ‘agoda’. You might want to keep this information handy while booking.

★ Consider this ‘Lowest Price Analysis’ as a guiding light rather than an absolute rule.
