“Under renovation - avoid”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

If i had known it was under renovation i would have avoided this place. It is a walkathon at best. Shop choices are hopeless, things selling inside are limited. Air conditioning is very weak and you feel suffocated. It is not the shopping Mecca it is made out to be. At least not in its current state. Wait till renovation complete before considering.

“did not impress me”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Not even sure why I went there, one of the guys who was traveling with wanted to go for what ever reason. Needless to say, I did not enjoyed the place. It was crowded, smelly, and super hot. Unless you enjoy shopping, I don't see why you need to go.
One positive about the place, we found a very good local restaurant. It was very cheap as well.

Happy shopping if you enjoy doing so.

“To get around in the massive complex (for the ones with little Kids) - Stroller rental service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

What can you do it Coex? Whatever you can imagine..
Shop (both luxury and cheaper brands), Eat & Drink, Movie, Play, Spa, Casino, Aquarium, even get a transportation to airports...etc

COEX mall is massive..also it is connected to Hyundai Department Store, Samsung City Airport Terminal, 2 InterContinental Hotels (Grand InterContinental & InterContinental Coex), Oakwood Premier Coex Center (Residence/Hotel), 7Luck Casino, Lotte Dutyfree Shop...etc. The mall also has MegaBox movie theater and Aquarium.

For the people with little kids, it is a challenge to walk about and find things in this massive place.
However, the mall does offer strollers for the little ones. As you enter into the mall from Samsung Station, (the far right door, that is next to Marche restaurant), keep walking down the main street till you see a information desk that is kind of right before the escalators.
You can borrow strollers (I think this service requrs your ID card) from there.

Trust me...this will really help you to enjoy the place pleasantly with your little ones.
