Fun, down-to-earth and unexpected is what you’d describe Hotel Cappuccino. Located in the dynamic Gangnam precinct, the rooms may be small in size but amazes with king size ACE beds, bunk beds, dog-friendly rooms and studio rooms with private terraces.

Other standouts include a lifestyle shop at their front desk, a self-laundry service and their partnership with various NGOs.

What to Pack


Nest Hotel

19-5 Yeongjonghaeannam-ro (Wunseo-dong), Jung-gu, Incheon Metropolitan City, 400-340

Situated in Yeongjongdo, just 20 minutes away from Incheon International Airport, Nest hotel is where you’d reside if you were looking for tranquillity away from the boisterous city. Built and designed by creative group JOH, the architecture of the building was strategically designed to preserve the many reed beds surrounding the hotel. The result is a spectacular view of mountains, pine trees, reed fields and the Yellow Sea in all 370 rooms.

With an industrial meets postmodern architecture stance and special attention to unique design elements – right from the hotel exterior’s “pile-up” design to floor-to-ceiling glass walls, it is no wonder that Nest hotel has acquired South Korea’s first Design Hotels membership.

Perfect for:

A stylish refuge away the flurry

Noteworthy Spot:

Kunst Lounge that includes a library, mini-theatre and mini bar
