3.1. Best Review 1: “An In-depth Review of My Stay at Darakhyu Incheon Airport T2, a Capsule Hotel in Incheon Airport”

Summary of the Blog Post

When you need a hotel at Incheon Airport, the capsule hotel Darakhyu located within the airport could be the closest hotel to the airport you can find.

Darakhyu, located inside Incheon Airport Terminal 2, is situated on the basement level, making it incredibly convenient. With the departure hall just three floors up, it’s hard to find a hotel closer than this.

In terms of cleanliness, I was extremely satisfied. Everything from the bedding to the hotel facilities was clean and well-maintained. The counter is right at the entrance, and during my visit, the hotel wasn’t too crowded, making it possible to use without a reservation.

The price for night usage wasn’t exactly cheap, but considering its location within Incheon Airport, it’s a significant advantage.

The interior of the hotel and its rooms were neat and tidy. Although the rooms were quite narrow, they were larger than typical capsule hotels in Japan.

The rooms were equipped with a wall-mounted Bluetooth speaker, which was convenient, and the bedding was comfortable. The rooms also had power outlets and USB ports, which were very handy. However, unless the sole purpose of the stay is to sleep, the narrowness of the space could feel a bit cramped.

The shower rooms were designed for individual use which was convenient, and there was a separate area equipped with a vanity and a hairdryer. Lockers were also provided for storage.

In conclusion, the main advantage of Darakhyu is its location within Incheon Airport, making it incredibly convenient for those catching early departure flights. Also, remember that there’s another Darakhyu located at Terminal 1!

5. Diving into Price Analysis

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

“Typically, I rely on three accommodation platforms – ‘Hotels Combined’, ‘Sky Scanner’, and ‘Trivago’ – to compare the lowest hotel prices. However, for ‘DarakHyu Incheon Airport T2’, reservations through these platforms were not available. It’s uncertain whether this is a temporary situation or will continue in the future. Regardless, it appeared that hotel reservations could only be made through the official website.”

“Reservations were not available through ‘Hotels Combined’, ‘Sky Scanner’, and ‘Trivago’.”

Through the ‘Darakhyu Incheon Airport T2’ official website, I took a look at the pricing. It was categorized into Day Use (08:00~20:00) and Overnight Use (20:00 ~ 08:00).

DarakHyu Incheon Airport T2

The pricing structure is as follows.

DarakHyu Incheon Airport T2: rates

For Day Use (08:00~20:00), you start with a base of 3 hours, and additional charges apply per extra hour. Based on the ‘Single’ type, it’s 27,000 KRW for 3 hours, with an additional 7,000 KRW charged per extra hour. Personally, I found it peculiar that there’s no ‘Single & Shower’ type in the Rates table (though it’s available at ‘DarakHyu Incheon Airport T1’). For this matter, it might be best to reach out directly to the hotel for clarification.

For the Overnight (20:00 ~ 08:00) Use, the ‘Single’ type is priced at 62,000 KRW for 12 hours. Please keep this in mind when planning your stay 😎”
