Just a 5 block walk from the COEX venue, the Designers offers a unique set of rooms, each with its own artful theme. My room - a single suite named "Self Expression" - was warm and bright with ample space. The technology was quite welcome - reliable free WiFi, remote control for all lights, climate control and the large flat screen TV, washlet toilet with heated seat. The tub was large and inviting, but I enjoyed the rain-like experience in the glass-walled shower (also providing a handheld wand). Among the hundreds of Korean channels, one could always find a selection of English movies, TV series and news broadcasts. The mini-fridge was stocked with free bottled water. Tea bags, tea set and water heater were also provided. The bed was large and comfortable (on the hard side which is fine for me) and the linen and towels were always clean and fresh.
A breakfast buffet is available for 15000 yon - a selection including coffee, juice bacon, eggs, sausage, vegetables, cereal and milk and bread. It was fine, but I generally had breakfast at one of many possibilities on the way to the COEX or at the COEX itself for less.
I arrived in Korea late evening and boarded a airport bus from Incheon that stopped at the COEX/Samsung metro station. I recommend printing a Google map to navigate your way to the hotel this first time. The staff is competent and friendly. The Designers is a good value for the area and I would happily stay again.
