The location is best. Metro is available in front of the hotel. On the right hand side of the hotel, there is also Hyundai department store where you can do some shopping or even having something to eat. It has also a very good super market. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is very good, lots of choices... More

This may be the best hotel in which I have ever stayed. The room was stunning, the decor in the common areas was beautiful, and the customer service was absolutely flawless (and the staff speak very good English, if you are looking for that). If I ever return to Seoul, I will stay here without question.

I found the room spacious and the bed very comfortable. I slept so soundly that I didn't hear the cheering from the Korean World Cup football supporters nearby. Having said that I think this hotel is overdue for renovations. It is tired looking and old. The tiles in the bathroom and the cabinets are very 'old world'. Please be careful... More

Stayed at this hotel for 10 days in June 14. From the moment you arrive until the time you leave you know they will take care of you well! Great rooms with all the amenities, helpful staff at every turn, and an amazing buffet for breakfast or dinner. You simply will not leave disappointed.

If you are at the COEX, then this hotel is a very handy short walk. Please note there are two Intercontinental Hotels, so please make sure you clearly inform the taxi driver of the correct one. Although I didn't use it, the underground train line is extremely close by and only 100m walk. Check in was very efficient and I... More

This is a good five star hotel. The Junior Suite we stayed in was a fantastic size and very well appointed.

Less than 100 metres from Samseong Subway station, and only 3 stops to Gangnam station. Hyundai Department store directly next door. Beautiful breakfast buffet with good healthy variety. Courteous and polite staff manner. Generous sized rooms, with triple share bedding configuration (double + single or triple singles) with still plenty of space in the room.
