This hotel is probably one of the nicest business hotels in the city. In the cold months it is great to have a nice department store (Hyundai Dept Store) and an underground mall attached to the hotel. Also if you have a flight out of the city you can use the CALT station connected to handle your baggage and be... More

I had a very good stay in this hotel. The service level is very good - one of the best. Very attentive to details and needs. I came out from a long flight and the room was immediately made available upon my check in in the morning. I had access to the Club Lounge and the selection for the breakfast... More

Very nice business hotel in the heart of the city. Spacious rooms and comfy bed. The gym is spacious but extremely busy in the morning with locals and hard to use the machines. The breakfast is good with plenty of choice. Staff is very well trained and polite. Had problems with my room key and needed to go down daily... More

Bathroom amenities are awful, cheap and nasty Agraria brand - whatever that is. Intercontinental used to do Elemis in Asia which was just ok, but this Agraria stuff is very harsh on your skin - not good after a long trip to get here:( Everything else is as you would expect from an Intercontinental except high price for what you...

This is another Intercon hotel in the Coex area (the other one being Intercon Coex Seoul which is at the north end of the Coex mall). This one is connected to the Parnas mall.

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.
