      G Stay Residence

      by rakmedeiros Online Now Jan 10, 2015 at 10:05 PM

      Does anyone know the website for the G Stay Residence hotel, near Camp Kim? I find the hotel on maps, trip advisor & hotels.com but cannot find the actual hotel website, despite searching on google etc. On the Korea tourist sites, several hotel finding websites are listed but I can only pull the hotel up on 1 of the sites but that says the hotel is not available for my dates (April 12-17, 2015). The Korea tourist site lists Agoda.com, Koreahotel.com, hotelpass.com, hotelscombined.com, worldhotel.co.kr, & pacakagekorea.com.

      My friends and I are planning to visit Seoul next year. We are 4 mommies and 3 children (7, 8 & 9).

      Does any of you know service apartments with price range between USD 2700-3200 for 8 nights?

      I prefer the apartment near subway station and not far away from shopping area such myeong dong, namdaemun, dongdaemun market. Gangnam is also an option (I stayed in this area last year).

      Thank you in advance.

      Thanks for reading.

      On my upcoming Asia trip, I'll be landing at Incheon and will have 16 hours before my next flight to Hong Kong. 5:30pm to 10:00am. Not ideal, but I'm excited about spending a fruitful evening there, as I've heard good things and that it's a 24-hour town.

      My question: what do I do? Traditional tourist sites are probably mostly out because of the hours, but I'm certain I can find a few things to do. Any ideas?
