Nice rooms, with a good location. But can be noisy - make sure to ask for a quite room. And get a business room, very much worth it. Gym is good, but could use an upgrade! Food is good, could be more creative on the international fare. But the Korean is awesome - so stay with the local stuff

Staff very warm and welcoming. Had not been to this hotel for 9 months and was still greeted by name as I entered the lobby. Rooms well laid out, work areas excellent, super comfortable beds. Views outstanding. Close by newly renovated COEX mall in the heart of Gangnam.

great location, just a stone-throw away from the subway, This hotel is located right next to the COEX Mall.The in-room WIFI is very fast too. The in-room heater works perfectly fine, and your room is like haven after walking around the streets of Seoul on a cold winter. And you will love the bathroom too

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.

Surely one of the best places to stay in this part of Seoul. Great hotel with an amazing breakfast, but unfortunately very expensive / but you get what you pay for. The service from the moment you arrive at the front of the hotel is exceptional. Enjoy

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

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.
