After a refreshing sleep and shower at the transit hotel, I had about four hours before my flight and spent the majority of it in Asiana’s Business Class Lounge.
It’s spacious with plenty of comfortable seating areas and a piano graces the center of the lounge.
The dark wood fixtures with books, newspapers and magazines gave it a library-like feel.
Down a narrow hallway, four shower rooms were available on one side with massage chair rooms on the other. I am once again a bad blogger and didn’t check out a shower room given I had just taken one at the transit hotel.
Planespotters will be happy with this lounge as there are a couple of areas lined with windows facing the tarmac.
Lounge agents were abundant and always walked by with a smile. The buffet section was just okay… nothing particularly stellar about it. Soups, noodles, veggies, cheese, crackers, toast and other items were available along with a well-stocked beverage section.
I had chicken porridge soup with a Korean coke that in my opinion is flatter than what we’re used to here in the U.S.
Not pictured is a large and separate business center lined with computers and a printer. Converters were available at the front desk and I plugged in to catch up on emails. Very few outlets were found in the main part of the lounge, which is a major complaint. I saw numerous people hunting for those few that existed along the wall.
It’s a nice lounge, but nothing is special enough about it to rush to the airport to have ample time to experience. I have a feeling I’ll be flying Asiana again and hope next time I’ll be departing Seoul in First Class so I can check out Asiana’s better lounge offering at ICN.
