Summary of the Blog Post

I visited the Lotte Hotel Jeju located in the Jeju Jungmun Tourist Complex. At first, I entered without much expectation, but I liked the clean and spacious space from the entrance. The hotel staff also kindly came out to meet and took the luggage to the room. After checking in at the reception, I even found a Louis Vuitton store while moving to the annex.

The room was really spacious and pleasant. The bathroom was clean, and although the bathtub felt a bit old, it was well maintained and satisfactory. The most anticipated garden view was really gorgeous like the symbol of Lotte Jeju. The well-arranged garden felt like a luxurious resort in Southeast Asia. The refrigerator was a bit small, so I had to arrange a bit to store food, but everything fit in somehow.

There was no convenience store in Lotte Hotel Jeju building, so I used a nearby 7-Eleven. It was there following the fitness club. Also, except for Wednesday, I could enjoy live performances at the outdoor swimming pool. It was so nice to have a leisurely drink while watching the show on the terrace. It was also good to pack and eat sashimi for dinner on the terrace. Watching the performance and having a drink with sashimi for two hours at the same time as the sunset was like a dream.

The convenience store was still operating after 10 o’clock, and it seemed to be unmanned in the early morning. Lotte Jeju was really the best. However, it would be good to choose a garden view and know that there is no performance on Wednesday.

The hotel operates shuttles from the airport to Jungmun, and the variety of menu items at the breakfast buffet was impressive.

The outdoor swimming pool, Haon, was offered for free to guests along with breakfast, and the DeliKahans voucher we received for food at the pool was worth KRW 25,000.

5. Lowest Price Analysis

I will finally analyze the most important category in hotel reviews, which is the price.

I will compare the lowest price results provided by the most famous hotel price comparison websites, “HotelsCombined,” “Sky Scanner,” and “Trivago,” in order to identify the place that offers the best price.

Lowest price search criteria: 1-night stay from Wednesday to Thursday, 1 room (for 2 guests), excluding breakfast.

5.1. “HotelsCombined” Price Comparison

The lowest price on Trivago is $213 when booked through “ZenHotels.com”.

Based on the analysis, it can be concluded that HotelsCombined” provided the lowest price among the three price comparison websites. And booking through “priceline” for a weekday 1-night stay yielded the most affordable result. It is recommended to consider this information when making a reservation.

Please keep in mind that the lowest prices can vary depending on the dates of stay and the timing of the search.

It is important to note that the current lowest price does not guarantee the lowest price in the future.

“The Lowest Price Analysis” I shared should be used for reference purposes only.
