The most prevalent types of accommodations in Korea are motels and yeogwans. There are many motels and yeogwans near the bus terminals and train stations in large cities. They are not only easy to access, but they are also inexpensive. Reservations are not required unless it is peak season or a holiday. Because of the cheap price and easy accessibility, the conditions are not always pleasant.
These accommodations usually offer ondol rooms (heated floors with cushioned mats to sleep on) so if you want a western-style room (with a bed) it is a good idea to check beforehand.
The prices vary depending on location and facilities. Generally, the cost is about 25,000-50,000 won; however prices may be significantly higher during peak season or holidays.
* Korea`s Peak Seasons: April-May, July-August, October-November. During the winter, the motels and yeogwans around ski resorts are usually at full capacity.
Pensions are a new type of lodgings that have recently appeared in Korea. Pensions are usually located in tourist areas filled with natural scenery and landscapes. They are European-style villas or cottages and provide an excellent place for rest and recreation in a natural setting. There are many forms of pensions, from high-class villas to simple log cabins. They are becoming extremely popular with couples and families.
Another type of lodging for families and groups is a log cabin, which are plentiful at recreational forests and amusement parks. Log cabins are fully furnished with convenient amenities and services. The cost per night at a log cabin is about 40,000-50,000 won for a family of four.
Campfires on individual campsites are prohibited so many campgrounds have specific campfire sites and cooking facilities.
