5. 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).

5.1. Price Comparison via ‘HotelsCombined’

Nine Tree Hotel Dongdaemun: lowest price on HotelsCombined

After searching through ‘HotelsCombined’, the best deal I found was $69 when booking through Agoda.

5.2. Price Comparison via ‘Sky Scanner’

Nine Tree Hotel Dongdaemun: lowest price on Sky Scanner

The lowest price on ‘Sky Scanner’ is $83 for a 1-night stay when booking through ‘Vio.com’.

5.3. Price Comparison via ‘Trivago’

The lowest price on ‘Trivago’ is $67 when booked through ‘Agoda’.

5.4. Official Website of ‘Nine Tree Hotel Dongdaemun

Nine Tree Hotel Dongdaemun: lowest price on the official website

I also explored prices directly from the ‘Nine Tree Hotel Dongdaemun’ official website. And I found that the lowest price was KRW 126,700. If we convert this using the exchange rate on the day of inquiry, which was 1 dollar to 1345 won, it comes out to USD 94.2.

Our analysis reveals that out of all four sites considered, the ‘Trivago’ offers the best deal at USD 67 for a stay at the ‘Nine Tree Hotel Dongdaemun’ when booking through ‘Agoda’. You might want to keep this information handy while booking.

★ Do bear in mind, these rock-bottom prices are subject to change based on your stay dates and when you’re conducting your search.

★ Also crucial to remember – today’s best deal doesn’t necessarily promise future savings.

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

★ For savvy hotel booking, I’d recommend revisiting these comparison sites during your accommodation planning phase – you never know when you might stumble upon an even better deal!”
