Where to Stay in Jeju, South Korea When on an Island Road Trip

Pin this post for later!

This tiny island off the coast of South Korea has a bundle of things to do and places to see.

We squeezed it all in in just four days, which ended up being just enough time!

We rented a car and took off, wandering the island spontaneously. Since we were there for four days, we had to figure out where to stay in Jeju. And now that we have done the legwork for you, you can simply choose from the list!

There are four main attractions/areas to Jeju, and while my article on our road trip around Jeju Island lays out an itinerary for what you will see in each of these four areas, this article will help you book a sweet sleep spot.

You can visit four areas in four days and rest easy that you have a place to stay at the end of your own sightseeing road trip. Take note: the best places to stay in Jeju are mapped according to the things to do so you can wake up and be at the spot you need to be!

Where To Stay In Jeju: Jeju City

If you only have time for Jeju City, you’ll still find plenty to enjoy. You can sightsee and walk around a mini-metropolitan area on a volcanic island!

Harbor is a step up from Daedong, but still pretty minimal. But again, you can walk to the arboretum, hop over to a museum, and enjoy a drink with friends within feet of your room.
