Nami Island, with its paths lined by trees of gold and snowy spots worthy of the most romantic K-dramas, tops many visitors’ list of places to see. It’s an easy day trip from Seoul — whether you’re commuting, taking shared transpo, or joining a time-saving multi-stop day tour — but that means you’re also likely to have to share the island with hordes of other tourists. The solution: get there before the others do, or stay way after they leave. In practical terms, that means staying in Nami Island itself or in lodgings near Gapyeong Station, so you can take the first/last ferry to the island without any problem.
As of now, there’s only one hotel in Nami Island itself, the Hotel Jeonggwanru. Reservations are made directly with the hotel by following the instructions HERE. However, if you want the advantage of being near Nami Island but also staying near a railway station so you can easily get to and from other parts of Seoul, these accommodations are your best options.

First, a word of caution. This hotel has just recently been opened and has no reviews yet. The map in its Booking.com listing shows it to be a couple of hundred meters from the Gapyeong train station but booking this property, at this time, would be a bit of a risk, so please consider that before booking.
