Everything was great especially service of the staff.Laundry is outragesouly expensive.. Gangam is a nice area to stay but far from the real action of Seoul and if you want to eat after 9 pm it is a problem.

Everything I could hope for after the 10 hour flight from home. Check-in was a breeze. The room had a wonderful view. Very clean and up to date. The cue for elevators was never a problem even in the morning "rush". Ther must be 1000 restaraunts within a 10 minute walk (no exaggeration). The City Airport Terminal was 1/2 block... More

Front desk staff was impolite and unprofessional (no eye contact, no smile and not pay attention to my questions ) when I approached their counter to enroll for the IHG Rewards Member in order to enjoy the complimentay in-room internet service. The Assistant Manager did follow-up the courtesy call and message nicely. Since i was not asking for any compensation,... More

Hotel is good and clean. But commuting can be a problem for folks on leisure. Hotel is opposite the Boguensa Temple, connected to Lotte duty free mall, there's a couple of cafes around, but I didn't had time to try much. Painful if commuting via train if using Line 9 which is closest by distance, (40-45 ++ mins, not including... More

The Intercontinental Hotel is next to the COEX exhibition centre which makes it very convenient to stay there. The Hotel is modern and very spacious. The Hotel staff are most friendly and helpful. I stayed on the 28th floor with a view of the river, the room is nice and efficient but not very big. Beds are comfortable so a... More

Access to everywhere is easy and the hotel has many facilities you can use. Another important thing is the convention center and mall next to the hotel with easy access. While staying at... More

I recently stayed here because my business brought me to this area in Seoul. I had stayed in the Intercontinental several years ago and remembered it was a positive stay. My remembrances were well founded. In addition to a great location for business the hotel is connected to a large underground mall which offers ample opportunities for additional restaurants. I...

Stayed for two nights at IC COEX for leisure and the hotel was flawless. It is a bit old and perhaps in need of refurb in some areas, but overall the facilities and more importantly the service was impeccable. I elected to take the airport transfer and was promptly escorted at the airport arrivals and driven to the hotel. As... 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.
