I just returned from a 5-day stay in this hotel yesterday and I found the hotel and the room were very dated compared to the last one I stayed in Osaka, which was incredible experience. I definitely don't prefer double handle faucets for sink in the bathroom under such a freezing cold weather in Seoul with only 5 to -7... More

This is a high end hotel, very much standard to other InterContinentals I have visited. It is conveniently attached to Coex. So you can use the indoor corridors to get to the mall or convention center, plus the casino and aquarium. There is a subway station close by, walking distance. Ideal for all business in Gangnam. But not recommended for... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback and comments following your recent stay. As you have highlighted, our hotels location is truly second to none when needing to be on the Gangnam side of Seoul.

The InterContinental Seoul COEX is a great hotel with professional staff and nice facilities. If you have business in the local area or are attending a convention at the attached facility, it is ideally located. If you are staying primarily to sightsee, the location is less than ideal, necessitating a long walk (10-15 min. through the COEX Mall) to the... More

A great business hotel. No concerns with the room, the facilities or the location. The hotel felt a little "cold". This is partly Korean culture, but I think being attached to the COEX has perhaps let the staff relax a little in terms of 'warmth' and consideration. I prefer the Grand Intercontiental around the corner, but the local Korean colleagues... More

The COEX Intercontinental in Seoul is on the river. It is large, but efficiently run. My Junior Suite was spacious and bright: my only reservation was that it had two bathrooms but very limited shelf space for clothes. It is well worth paying the extra for the Club facilities: good food, and charming and helpful service.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and feedback following your recent stay, much appreciated. Whilst not exactly on the river, we certainly do have some great views from the higher floors of the Han river and of Seoul itself. We shall take a look at the shelving in the bathrooms as you have highlighted and also thank you for... More

Location of the hotel was excellent! Walking distance from the subway, department store around the corner, and the hotel service was excellent. Very friendly staff that spoke English and the rooms were very clean. We stayed with InterContinental in March 2014 of this year and returned in October 2014. Planning to visit Korea in March 2015, and already booked the... More
