This is a good place for a holiday/vacation in Seoul. There are buses to/from Incheon International Airport to the hotel at a very affordable price ($16/pax). The Coex mall is a taste of exotic Korean foods. Restaurants are located below the Casino, it's a short walking distance.

The good people here honored my IHG status and upgraded my room. It was large, clean and well equipped. Service was very good at check in and check out. Room service was very good. One grip was they use water saving shower heads, this was tough to get a good flow going. My room had two showers, I tried both... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my sister. Checking in was a breeze and I was given the highest possible floor as requested. The view from the room was wonderful as we were looking down at the temple on the left and the Han River straight ahead. That by itself was a pure treat. The service was impeccable until we... More

Great services from the front desk and concierge. Speedy check-in and good advice on restaurants nearby. Concierge was helpful and friendly with airport transport and suggestions for local shops. Breakfast buffet had good selections of local and Western food. Do try the Korean congee with seaweed for breakfast, different every day. Many shops and local food joints near the hotel,... More

A very nice hot and linked to the Coex Mall and just across the Bongeunsa temple. Room was spacious and bed was comfortable.. Pity we have always stayed one night in Seoul. Plenty of eating and drinking places. I was particularly impressed with the service. Since I couldn't take a Korean English daily from the business center, the lady at... More

Nice, modern hotel in the Gangnam area, which is quite away out of the centre of town but situated next to the Coex Mall and across the road from a great street full of little restaurants and bars. My room was quite large for 1 person, with a separate lounge area and 2 bathrooms, which was a nice surprise! All... More

There are 2 InterContinentals in Seoul. COEX is more modern and it is located right next to COEX mall, which has everything. Reception was very friendly and fast. There are several hotel staff just waiting at the lobby to help you including a beautiful lady in a traditional Korean dress to greet you. If you are IHG's member you can... More

I have been staying here since it opened for the 1988 Olympics. It has been a very good hotel since and very consistent. The restaurants are great and the lobby bar is a great place to chill. Staff is very pleasant and very responsive to your needs.

Their room service was great and i really enjoyed my stay. As advised by our tour guide, this hotel is quite far from the city center but the surrounding area... More

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel tremendously. I was really tired from a long flight and slept in their very quiet and dark room with no disruption. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a separate shower and a bathtub - it was a large bathroom. Their breakfast buffet was amazing with delicious, mixture of western and... More
