Sharing my experience at Signiel Seoul Hotel, when driving to the hotel, it’s essential to find the right parking space to reach the hotel at once, and although check-in is at 3 pm, it’s recommended to arrive early.

Summary of the Blog Post

I went on a staycation at Signiel Seoul in Jamsil after six months. The location is Jamsil, and I had a fulfilling time, eating lunch at the stay and visiting the lounge. It was the best place among domestic hotels I’ve visited. It’s good to refer to the lunch review as well. Hotels like Signiel and Shilla Hotel have excellent conditions and top-notch service. After checking in, I was assigned to a lovely room and made good use of the hotel’s tips. The room was spacious and pleasant, and the bathroom was luxurious. In addition, the lounge and Han River view were absolutely stunning. I would like to visit on a clearer day next time.

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(When I included breakfast in the accommodation conditions, no search results came up at all).

5.1. “HotelsCombined” Price Comparison

Signiel Seoul: lowest prices on Hotelscombined

The lowest price search result on HotelsCombined is $358 for a 1-night stay. This price is based on booking through “priceline”.

5.2. “Sky ScannerPrice Comparison

Signiel Seoul: lowest prices on Sky Scanner

The lowest price on Sky Scanner is $493 for a 1-night stay when booked through “Hotels.com”.

5.3. “Trivago” Price Comparison

Signiel Seoul: lowest prices on Trivago
Signiel Seoul: lowest prices on Trivago

The lowest price on Trivago is $484 when booked through “Klook”.

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. The price offered by “Priceline” had quite a difference compared to other competitors, making me wonder how this was possible.

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.

When considering a hotel reservation, I recommend re-searching through price comparison websites at the time of your accommodation planning to utilize the lowest price available at that specific moment.
