We stayed here for the Seoul Character and Licensing Fair. It was my 2nd time at this hotel. Lobby is modern and spacious. This hotel was convenient as we were attending an event at COEX. Rooms are well equipped and a good size. Bed was comfortable. Lots of small cafes with good food at the COEX underground mall. There are... More

This was my first time to Seoul and the purpose was for work. The Coex is definitely a business hotel. By that I mean there isn't much character or charm. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. There are a few restaurants on site and they are good but not great and the price is much higher than nearby restaurants... More

I enjoyed my two nights stay here. Staff is great and very helpful. I ate my dinner at Brasserie, they have very good variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. Their hostess is a very nice person. I was particularly impressed with their flexibility- they helped me in having my breakfast at Intercon grand instead of Coex. My only complaint is... More

Well what to say , the hotel rooms are good and enough luxury. Shower which is clean and big, also a bath. Location is perfect and the service very attentive. But : early check in. 30% extra charge , room charge also too high if comparing to other brands 4 star plus. Food and drink the same. Overpriced. Ok the... More

For most tourists, this hotel might not be in the best location, as Gangnam COEX is rather far away from the city center by subway (unless you are in a group tour, then it doesn't matter). However, I think this hotel might be the best value among the 5-star hotels in Seoul. If you have some time to really enjoy... More

This hotel is a mixed of excellence and below average, and I summarise what I mean as follows: The areas where this hotel excel are: 1. The courtesy of its staff members.

We stayed here one night as a family, and our first impression was very good: Excellent location, nice lobby, helpful staff. The room was spacious and had everything in it one could need (including cellphones and portable modem that you can take along with you), but was lacking somewhat in the 'taste' department: the choice of materials was somewhat strange...

From the moment you walk into the hotel everyone treats you like you are a rock star! The front staff could not be nicer. If you so much as looked like you had a question or a concern the hotel staff would run to your side to see what you needed. My room was a single king and the bed... More

This hotel needs to train their people a bit on how to handle complaints. I paid $19.00/USD in the lobby for a a small glass of grapefruit juice. Having had that horrible experience, I thought it best to check and see how much I was paying for a very small can of Coke out if the mini bar in my... More
