    1. Hello Crystal Chua,
      Since you arrive at Gimpo Airport, you should take bus 6021 (not 6015 which departs from Incheon Airport). For Skypark 1 hotel, alight at Myeongdong Station. Walk into the alley and turn left at the first junction, continue walking until you see Skypark 1 hotel. Enjoy your stay at Myeongdong!

      If prince hotel and nine tree, which will be nearer to shopping & metro.?

      How about airport shuttle from Gimpo airport? Is it the same stop?

    10. Yes, I would recommend Nine Tree hotel. Lots of shopping and just steps away from metro bus station and 6021 bus stop to/from Gimpo Airport and bus 6015 to/from Incheon Airport.
      If you cannot get a room at nine tree hotel, prince is fine as well but you have to cross the main road using traffic light zebra cross after getting off the bus.
