From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with first rate hospitality. From the doorman to the front desk, check in was flawless. We encountered a problem with a noisy guest next door and were promptly greeted by the female duty manager who moved us immediately. The hotel connects with the COEX mall which houses the aquarium, exhibition halls, and... More

I enjoyed my 3 night stay at IC COEX. First - the staff were exceptional! They were always lurking near the elevators, ready to do your bidding at a moment's notice. Always friendly and always looking out for you! The room was very comfortable. The standard amenities were available with plenty of plugs for the various devices. The breakfast buffet... More

You'll have access to an underground shopping area, subwayl stop and even an acquarium! Upper mid level in price, the hotel delivers.

As a Work for a hotel in Japan, I always know what to look for when walking into a hotel. It is very easy to tell if you’re going to enjoy your stay or not from the very beginning.

What a fantastic choice for our last night in Seoul. Even though the rooms weren't as new or modern as other hotels, it was perfect, as the service provided by the staff were excellent the moment we stepped into the foyer.

This hotel is fantastic, clean, comfortable rooms and great service. We had a river view that was super nice and the windows are basically floor to ceiling, so you can sit in your room and just soak in the city/river view.

Stayed here over the Christmas weekend. The staff were excellent and helpful. The breakfast was delicious, however there was very long waits both mornings to be seated.

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.
