The most prevalent type of accommodation in Korea are motels and yeogwans. Many motels and yeogwans populate the vicinity nearby 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 necessarily 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 raised during peak season or holidays.
* Korea`s Peak Seasons: April-May, July-August, October-November. During winter, motels and yeogwans around ski resorts are usually filled.
