Stayed at the Intercontinental Seoul COEX for a business meeting and conference. Staff were supremely trained, yet remained caring and warmhearted. Large, expansive gym and lap pool. Excellent buffet breakfast. Attentive meeting room staff.

This hotel meet and exceeded my expectations. Rooms where great, locations, board meeting room was excellent - however, there was a little confusion regarding signage, AV equipment, and some services regarding my meeting. It was all resolved however. This hotel is in a wonderful location, central to the subway, and was very welcoming.

An excellent hotel if attending a conference at CEOX. We stayed 5 nights using the club rooms which is worth paying a little extra. Light Lunch snacks and light meal and alcoholic drinks served at night until 8.00pm. With wine prices so high in Korea having a drink or two in the comfortable lounge and talking to other people from... More

Stayed in this hotel for two days - frankly speaking, main reason why I've chosen this property was to use ambassador certificate - still, hotel exceeded my expectations. Service is really exceptional, starting from bell and reception staff, ending with concierge. Although hotel is not new, rooms are in great condition. In addition to standard appliances, there's hotel-provided mobile phone... More

I had a very short stay in Sepul but the Intervontinental was a good pick. The room was one of the best I've been in and the attentiveness of the staff made this a great hotel. Fitness centre is one of the best you will find in any hotel anywhere in the world. It was let down by a bad... More

Nice hotel, I stayed for 5 nights. Rooms are good sized, comfortable and functional. Although located next to the Coex mall and 7 Casino, it takes a good 10-15 mins to get to the subway entrance. Wanted to get some Korean food and asked Concierge. One recommendation was going to one across the street which was a bit disappointing. However,... More

The hotel is all you would expect from a 5 star place. The rooms are comfy and the staff are great. However, the prices are ridiculous. A beer in the bar upstairs cost over 20,000 won (about 12 quid). A pizza was almost double that. To put that into context, you can get a beer in one of the local... More

I now have stayed two times at the InterContinental Coex and two times at the Grand InterContinental Seoul which are only diagonally opposite each other. Hence any review should compared the two. In the past Grand InterContinental Seoul is much better but with the new construction essentially cut off the hotel lobby a lot and make the entry to Soeul... More

The first thing you'd notice when you enter the hotel is the number of staff in the lobby waiting to assist. Counted about 13 of them while waiting for a cab during one of the days of my stay. Hospitality and service is very good. Instant service available through speed dial in the room phones in a hotel with 650+... More

Staying in Samseongdong / COEX

Neighborhood Profile
Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important business exhibitions and meetings are held. The enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a myriad of things to do and see, including a large aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or take a stroll nearby through the tranquil royal burial grounds of Seonjeongneung, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
