The hotel was nice enough. But then it should be the price of it. The breakfast in particular was extremely overpriced. As are the drinks in the bar - particularly things like coffee and coke. If you are planning on drinking here - I would recommend the happy hour (53,000 won or 46,000 for residents) which is on from 6.30... More

This is the more upscale of two Intercontinental hotels at opposite ends of the massive Coex complex in Seoul’s Gangnam district. They finished a large renovation on the lobby last year and the area behind the hotel is also completed. There is a check- in lounge to the side for Ambassador members. The rooms are the same – very large,... More

Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas is truly a gem in the center of Seoul. Easy to access from Seongnam train station, and its basement connected with City Airport Terminal, as well as a huge mall! With its great rate, I will definitely recommend it to all business traveler.

Had a wonderful weekend stay at this hotel, fantastic room at a very attractive rate. Intercontinental ambassador upgrade came through reliably, and late check out was no problem. I found the food and beverage options at the hotel extremely expensive, but I guess that's just how it is, and there are many nice little restaurants and cafés in the area,... More

Very pleased with tonight's experience. Parnas has a nice flare and traditional ambiance which is nice to experience. They very much delivered to exceed expectations. Staff extremely professional and the food is quite good - considering 80-90 people are tying to eat all at once. Recommended for your biz events

Beautiful hotel, with some of most professional and helpful doormen and porters, particularly Geoffrey and the other young man who assisted me with I had missed and managed to set me up an alternative on the same day. Would definitely recommend.

Expect a large and quite busy business hotel. This is a big building, connected to the COEX mall and convention center and supplied with very good links to transit and the airport. As such, this is not a quiet boutique hotel with dark corners and hip bar and lobby. As mentioned, construction is still going on next door which could... More

I came into town for a family reunion. I decided to get a good night's rest before diving into the drama and craziness that is my family and so, I looked up places on hotels.com -- my criteria? Clean, easy access via the City Air Terminal Bus from Incheon airport, near somewhere I could grab some good food and walk... 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.
