3.1. Best Review 1: “An In-Depth Review: My Experience Staying at ‘Darakhyu Incheon Airport T1’, The Capsule Hotel in Terminal 1 of Incheon Airport”

Summary of the Blog Post

I’d like to share my review of the capsule hotel ‘Darakhyu Incheon Airport T1’ located at Incheon Airport Terminal 1. As my flight was scheduled for early morning, I thought about staying near the airport, and I tried a capsule hotel for the first time. One of the advantages of this place was the ability to choose check-in and check-out times freely.

I chose the ‘overnight’ plan as my flight was at dawn, and I chose a room with a double bed and a shower booth. The room was larger than I thought and was neatly arranged. Basic amenities were provided in the shower booth, but I had to use a shared toilet.

One advantage of this place was that it was right next to the airport, so there was no burden to catch an early morning flight. Also, in the room, there were free Wi-Fi, USB charging ports, and 220-volt outlets, which were convenient. There was a Bluetooth speaker, so I could relax and listen to atmospheric music.

However, if you have long hair, I recommend bringing your own hair dryer as the dryer is weak, and you need to bring a towel from the room as there is no towel in the shared shower room. There are restaurants around where you can have a simple meal, but the nearest convenience store only operates until 9 or 10, so it’s best to purchase necessary items in advance.
